The room didn't even have a telephone to call the reception. The front desk is manned by 2 managers - one for each: day & night shifts. The in room WiFi connection is good and upon checking in, I was given separate passwords per device. Hotel is a 7 min walk from the main railway station - Frankfurt am Main...

Really handy location, just five minutes walk from the railway station. Rooms are functional and clean(ish) although our shower head had to be balanced to sit in the right position. I actually enjoyed this battle of wills. However, staff at reception desk were unfriendly and unhelpful. I asked for the wifi code/password and was told they would give it to...

I was in Frankfurt for a couple days in business. Hotel is located near central station. There are a bit homeless people on the streets in that location. Service man was a bit rude. Room was quite nice but price was to high for it. Next time in Frankfurt I'll try to find another place.

Situated close to the main rail station and close to the river it is difficult to fault the location. Rooms are set back from the street so the only impediment to a guilt night is inconsiderate fellow travellers (we had a few of those). Rooms are clean and well appointed and represent good value for money. We were able to...

Receptionist old gent was terribly rude. I wonder how on early this hotel get good review. It's not a problem to leave the key when I head out. The problem is they dont return the correct room key when u go back. I stayed for 2 nights, and the rude man (another one) gave me wrong key everytime!!!!! You room...

Hotel of crooks! I Booked the hotel on December 25, and received approval ( for hotel people - check booking number 8029642972285), stating, that: "We’ve guaranteed your booking with MasterCard ending in 0298. Don’t worry, we haven’t taken any payment as you’ll pay the hotel directly in their local currency" So I did not worry, but I went wrong... On...

We got a twins room for 50Euro. Room was small, but clean, with all the facilities. I think it is exactly what you are excepting from the cheap, central located accomondation. And it was quite funny, because I accidently booked a room for december 2016, instead of 2015. But when we arrived, the receptionist just checked us in as normal....

The hotel is great for a short stay it is simple and cheap and really close to the central station (and one block from where long distance busses stop). The neighbourhood is not great at night with some strange people hanging about (but it is worse on the other side of the Central station which is the red-light district, so...
