I stayed here for a long-term assignment so my review is based on several weeks. First, the pictures from the hotel website are accurate- what you see is what you get so that is a positive. I stayed here in a Maisonnette, which was comfortable. The kitchen included a 2 top stove, a coffee maker, sink, small refrigerator, and a microwave. It was functional but the appliances were old/ dated (hadn't seen a turn dial microwave in 10 years). I missed not having a toaster/ toaster oven. Cleaning was once a week and was excellent. Washer/ dryer in the hotel and you could do it yourself for 4 Euro for wash and 4 for dry. Location was nice. Near train station..5 minute walk..but note that Friedrichsdorf Bahnhof is not handicap accessible- several flights to get to the train platform. Also, even though Frankfurt city is a 25 minute train ride, the Sbahn 5 only goes every 30 minutes so it can take some time to get there. There is a nice grocery store next to the hotel which was convenient. Also, a few restaurants including a Chinese restaurant that was quite good around the corner. The BIG drawback for me was the INternet service. The maisonette had wireless but you had to purchase an account for when you wanted to use it 15 Euros for 24 hour units. This means that you could not have more than one device connected at a time, could not use phone for wifi service, and had to be sure to log in/log out. I needed multiple accounts so it was incovenient to keep going to purchase another account. I thnk they should have some sort of package or include it in the price. The bandwidth was narrow too...made it difficult to Skype. Other than the internet, I recommend this place but to be truly an "at home" type of residence, they need to fix their Internet set-up. Also, as with most places, there is no air conditioning, but they did provide a fan.
