A good, basic, near the train station place. Clean, safe, but a bit noisy on road side in the morning. Bathroom was very good, breakfast adequate for German hostels. Many working men at breakfast and up early. Close to all public transportation.

Group of 4 friends visiting Frankfurt for a weekend beginig of May 2015. Accomodation in an old house in the inner yard. Very basic small but clean room and bathroom. Free wifi at good speed. Very comfortable bed. Heating working properly as the weather was rather cool and rainy. No toiletries in the bathroom, but clean towels changed daily. Breakfast... More

On arrival to this place I was met by a sour faced receptionist who thought it was more important to continue to chat with his friends, than welcome me and check me in. The reception /breakfast area was small and unwelcoming. However when I got to my room in the annex I was pleasantly surprised. It was small, but clean,... More

Pro: it's cheap and right beside the main station. Contra: really disgusting rooms and very unfriendly staff (as we went out and forgot to leave our room key at the reception a staff stepped out and yelled at us over the street and everyone was starring at us).

Extremely clean - esp considering the price! For an economical overnight place to stay between flights, I think this is a very good option. Very simple decor, but its clean. And that counts for a lot. Only thing they really need to improve is the pillows - which were not that comfortable.

We stayed there mid Feb 2015, we booked it for the price and location as Frankfurt is quite an expensive city to live in. Positives: location is fantastic, it is right next to the station (5-7 minutes walk) and it is cheap. Does provide good breakfast which is a bonus. Arrived earlier than check-in time but they had the room... More

The Pension is quite close to the Train Station in Frankfurt and is convenient to take other public transportation. I stayed in the back building which was very quiet (except for the noise from the other guests' walking on the staircase). The room was very warm and minimal. I mean minimal! The breakfast was basic but nice; the breakfast-space was... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. We booked this hotel for the price (which includes breakfast) and location. To start of with, the room size was just nice. Bathroom was okay but there isn't a proper drainage apart from the shower cubicle. If you do wet the bathroom floor it will not dry quick or water won't go anywhere. Heater... More

Great location and value for the money. My only complaint would be that the staff was kind of rude. They demand that you drop off your key when you leave then when you return you have to hunt one of them down or wait awhile to get back into your room.

Being only 5mins walk from the main Frankfurt railway station (which is a 15min ride from the airport) this hotel ticks all the boxes. Clean and comfortable - we stayed in the section out the back where the rooms have private bathrooms. Manager was kind enough to let us in before 7am - we thought we would just have to... More
