“Nice experience”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

The room was a really large suite with a full kitchen and living space. The place was nice and clean. It was in a quiet location within walking distance of the centre of the town. We arrived by car and it was easy to park close to the hotel. The train station is also just a 3 minute walk away. If you stop over for one night, be aware of there is not many restaurants in the area. The breakfast buffet was ok but we couldn’t get a Internet connection because of some problems. Internet was to an additional charge. The cost and location not far from Frankfurt that was our destination was convenient coming by car from west Germany.

I must have stayed here at least about 5-6 times from 2003 to 2007, some of my stays were for a month or more. My recent visit here was on 16/11/2013 and myself and my friend traveled to Bad Homburg just for a day to meet some friends and just bring back memories of this place.
Hotel Arkadia was the obvious choice. We booked a maisonette and the room was very good. Earlier I had always stayed in a Single bed room. The hotel is comfortable and very good. Am Houiler Platz has a few shops nearby, there are two Chinese restaurants close by, Kim Kim and Me King. S - Bahn station is about 5 minutes by walk and very convenient to get to the city.
Overall it is a very nice place to stay. Internet can be a problem. You have to purchase it and for those who just want to update facebook status on your mobile, it doesnt make sense to spend 15EUR for that. You are better off with your mobile data connection.
Otherwise it is a very nice place to stay. I would definitely recommend this place.

The room was a really large suite with a full kitchen and living space. It was in a quiet location that was within walking distance of stores so it was nice and inviting. The train station is also just a 3 minute walk away. The things that take my rating down are the fact that I was at the hotel for 9 days and housekeeping only cleaned my room once (fresh towels, empty smelly kitchen trash, etc.), and Internet was an additional hefty charge, and front desk has limited service times.

Room Tip: make sure you're not by the keyed door entry. It's pretty loud when people are coming and g...

I have stayed at this hotel several times while doing business in Friedrichsdorf. It is a short walk away from the train station (S-Bahn) Friedrichsdorf. The hotel staff is friendly and the rooms are nice, clean and spacious. The breaksfast room is nice and offers a good variety of options for your breakfast. I even received 1 hour of free WiFi when I checked into my room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the end of a hallway and facing towards the courtyard (and not towards the main st...

I stayed here as it was close to the office. For this it was good. The hotel had a very casual feel unlike most hotels. The room was fine had most things you would expect. Hated to have to pay for internet but it at least worked well. The breakfast was included and a good spread.

My experience with Hotel Arkadia is essentially the same as the other reviewers: Clean room, friendly and helpful staff, convenient location. There was free parking in the lot right across the street. The small kitchenette was a plus. We didn't use it for more than to make tea in the early morning or late afternoon, but it was very convenient to have it since our jet lagged state meant we were consistently up at 4:00 am. The breakfast offerings were EXCELLENT. I would rate this a 5 star except for the WiFi. This has become such an important feature that it stands out when it is inconvenient. Each day required a new code and signing in and out. There is a computer in the lobby that is free and would be fine for occasionally checking email, but I needed in-room access. This is a very good hotel and I would stay there again.

Reviewed 18 June 2012

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.

Room Tip: I had a room that had lots of sun...it was 380s..but that also made it get quite warm...
