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... More

An economical option perfect for a short stay. We had a stopover in Frankfurt for one night and the location near the central station made it easy to travel to and from the airport. There's always personnel at the counter. The rooms were basic.

Very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Great location - within minutes to the mainline station. Not much around the hotel itself... nice little irish pub (O'Reillys) in walking distance. Staff on reception very helpful. Wifi is good. Beds comfy - had a horrible hard pillow but went to reception and was kindly changed. Extremely good value for money. We had... More

we've been in this hotel for two nights;the location is almost next to central station 2-3 minutes by walk,the problem is central station is one of the worst neighbor in Frankfurt and the red light street is over there. At night this neighbor will be a place for drug dealers and pimps. You will not get any services here and... More

It's really close to the Frankfurt Haupt Bahnhof, like around the corner, just 2-3 minutes walk. But convenient location is probably the only good thing about it. The walls are like made of paper and you can basically hear everything from the street, from your neighbour... it offers the minimum you expect from a hotel. Breakfast is ok, and cost... More

The staffs are so rude and unfriendly! You could never feel that they want to assist you. They make so many ridiculous rules and you need to return the keys once you want to go out! Oh my god, you pay the money but you cannot own the key?! The size of room is too tiny to stay! Please just... More

We're in a 4-person quad room for four nights and for this price the room quality, cleaning services, breakfast and location is amazing. This is not a social place to meet new people but that was not a problem for us. We're enjoying our stay here!

Nice, clean and cheap hotel with an excellent location. Employees were friendly, helpful, athmosphere was nice and location was 5/5: next to the railway station and small park where is good to take a sun and drink beer. Only negative was noise from the street what can be disturbing for some people, for me not too loud :D

This place is perfect for you if you are arriving/leaving by train or airport and need only a stopping point with no frills.  It was the perfect place to come into town and sleep off some jet lag, because it was a cheap room rental and close to the train station.  The train from airport to main station is free...
