This hotel was about average. The little bar is ok and it is close to Leipzigerstasse (sp) which is pretty awesome. The Ubahn is close so easily accessible. Con: Got a smoking room instead of non-smoking complained to the front desk and they offered a room with a detached bathroom or some deodorizing spray. Internet is not free and it... More

The quality is ok for this price, but the room could be cleaner. The furniture in the room and bathroom is not the newest one, the cabine in the bathroom was broken and too much used. But if you don't pay so mucht attention to these details, it was ok!

I booked my trip late for one of the largest lighting shows in the world. This small, intimate friendly establishment accommodated this American with ease. Perfect English and offered a ton of eating options. Only a few minutes from the convention center and walking distance from bakeries, deli’s, specialty shops and more. The concierge arranged local transportation quickly and efficiently... More

This hotel was great. My fiance and I were visiting Frankfurt to see my sister who lives in the next road from the hotel so the location was great for us but was also just a 5minute walk from the tube station. The rooms were spotless, cleaned every day and the bag of gummy bears on our first day were... More

I stayed at the Sophien in March 2012 and was charged 60 euros including breakfast. The hotel was average if uninspiring and I didn't bother to write a review. When I tried to book again in September I was offered a room at 468 euros! Apparently this was because there was a World Trade Fair and consequently rooms were in... More

2 nights 670 euro +20 euro for early arrival ! 4 stars hotel rate for 1 star hotel value. Rude management, absolutely to avoid.

Stayed at the hotel for 2 nights on a trip to the Paperworld trade show. It was an average hotel, staff ok if a little abrupt at times, but softened during our stay. Breakfast was adequate. Rooms were clean, if a little cold, as they turn the radiators off when they come in to clean the room. Good walking distance... More

Was very cold in the room and did not seem clean .I went back to reception and... More

All that has been said about this Hotel is right. However it should be noticed that during nights there is roar of couples making love. Many of them reserved rooms only for that purpose. It looks familiar with the brothel

We stayed at the Sophien back in March of 09 for 3 days and were greeted warmly by Christian at the front desk who took care of all of our needs. The rooms are clean comfortable and quite functional. The rates are very reasonable. The breakfast is excellent and we plan to stay there again on our next visit to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sophien Hotel Frankfurt is to be found in Frankfurt-Bockenheim, not far from the famous botanic garden "Palmengarten" , the university of Frankfurt. The consulates and embassies of the France, Turkey, Croatia, Brazil and many other countries are equally not far from our hotel. The Congress Center and the Frankfurt Fair are easily reachable being just 1200 Meters away from us. You'd be there in 15-20 minutes on foot, or in about 2 or 3 minutes by car.Sophien Hotel Frankfurt is now managed by a new staff ever since February 2005.The placement of the hotel is very optimal for tourists as well as for business travelers, because of the many councils and government offices that are equally not far.Almost all means of transportation such as buses, tramways, underground trains and taxis are easily found, all being at most 5 mn away from our hotel.We offer you 36 bright and vast single and double rooms on 6 floors.Begin a fresh new busy day, with a diverse and tasty "Frankfurter" breakfast in our dining room. ... more   less
