The hotel was selected for a weekend stay to visit the Christmas market, a trip to a football match with my son and generally see the sites of Frankfurt. Having made similar trips to Germany for the same reasons to Cologne, Berlin & Nuremburg I believe the most important factor for such a visit is the location of the hotel followed by the hotel itself. My son and I had no problems with the hotel apart from one small issue of soft pillows which were changed when requested. Our stay included a free continental breakfast and free Wi-Fi plus a superior twin bedded room which more than met our needs and was great value for money.
It's location however was an issue. It was great for train connections to the airport and for us the football stadium with the main line train station directly opposite the hotel but it was a good 15 minutes walk to the main shopping centre where the Christmas market was situated. Fortunately there were some good restaurants to eat on route which meant that we didn't have to walk all the way back into town again of a night time to eat. Meals were available in the hotel but like any hotel were pricey. The underground can be used to visit the centre of town and cannot be more than two stops. The area toward the railway station is a little bit seedy but not threatening in anyway. Would I use the hotel again. For the service it provided definitely. For location, I would probably look for something a little closer to the main centre area.
Not a luxury hotel by any means but great value for money. The staff are cheerful and helpful. No real restaurant, but the bar seems to run all hours serving sandwiches and quite reasonable pizzas. There is also a guest kitchen with facilities to prepare your own food. Rooms are small but quiet and very clean and well maintained.
There is a free shuttle to the hotel from the airport but it can be tricky to find - at the moment it leaves from across the road opposite door 8 at Terminal 2 (D-E).
"Good hotel in Frankfurt, near the railway station"
I chose this hotel because it was in walking distance to the main railway station. It had good reviews and it certainly lived up to its name. Frankfurt is a mix of old and new, and this is a newly refurbished hotel in an older building. It is 400m from the station. I stayed there one night and it was very comfortable. I arrived at 10am expecting to have to drop my luggage off and go walking for a while, but my room was ready and available. The staff were really helpful and of course they spoke excellent English.
The room was clean and modern. The facilities were very good but the shower did not have any privacy - good job I was on my own. The glass walls of the shower were clear and the person showering would have been clearly visible to anyone else in the room. You might not consider this a problem of course, but I felt it was a little strange.
The room was not large, just enough room for a single person, but the bed was king size.
The restaurant had a good choice from a la carte to basic burger depending on what you are looking for. It is well furnished.
There was no view from my room, except of the next building but that was OK. The room was certainly better than anything you would get in London for the same money.
Yes I would recommend it to my friends and yes I would stay there again.
The 12pm checkout was a nice bonus.
We picked this hotel because it was close to the Christmas market and main shopping street Zeil. The rooms were modern, spotlessly clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Although primarily geared to the business traveller this hotel suited us well as a couple travelling with one parent in 70's. It would probably not suit so well if we were travelling with kids. We ate in the restaurant one evening and found the food to be of a high standard. The bar and waiting staff were really nice. Breakfasts also offered a good selection and although some other reviewers have said that the waiting staff were slow to replenish supplies that is not what we experienced. Would happily visit again.
