I should have known this would happen. I have been to Frankfurt once and I arrived by train. On that trip I left the railway station and found myself in the red light area. I beat a hasty retreat. This time I thought I had to book a hotel near the place I would be working. I searched on a... More

We stayed 3 days at this hotel between 12 and 15 September 2012. Location is central, although nearby to 'red lights' district it is rather calm and safe (if you do not need 'their' services - just don't use it) Our room was not so big in size, but clean, no smell of smoke, shower was working and clean, beds...

This is a horrible dirty hotel in a very dangerous area at night due to the junkies who are injecting in the doorway of the hotel. They are in the street 24/7 and shout and scream all night long and the police have trouble controlling this and it is a major problem in this area. Reception staff are incredibly rude... More

I stayed here overnight for work and was shocked by the supposed 3* grading this hotel had. The road it was on was appalling, located opposite a building site and a run down casino, meaning the noise was unbearable all night long. I didn't sleep at all due to screaming, shouting etc. Red light district seems to be the kind... More

Stayed there on 28th January 2012, the area just off the main street and 400 meters from Main railway station is very bad. It is bang in the middle of the red light area and is full of drug users and low lifes, pimps, prostiutes and generally a place not to be frequenetd by normal people. Hotel is just a... More

I'm surprised actually by the really negative recent comments. I have stayed here at least four times. This most recent time I paid roughly 40 Euros a night to stay in downtown Frankfurt. Unsurprisingly that only buys a certain level of comfort in a major banking center. The hotel is centrally located, close to the tran station, university, museums, etc.... More

Do yourself a favour and don't even think of going in this hotel. It was the most unpleasant experience i ever had. This is the most trashiest area in frankfurt and the hotel was pathetic. You have hookers and drug addicted people everywhere. The recepcionist could not speak english and was rude. Just drive around \frankfurt and I can asure... More

This hotel is located in the most disgusting area of Frankfurt. From the place where I parked my car to the door I had to pass through 10 hookers and 15 crackheads that were working the aluminum foil in front of my windshield. Absolutely disgusting. Reception does not speak English. When I was showed the room there was some kind... More

Arrived at 10pm to find hookers sitting on the doorstep. I think their pimp was across the road in a fetching White suit and a stetson. The smell of urine was over bearing. I think they normally rent the rooms by the hour. There were drunks and druggies out in the street. My room or cell as I fondly called... More
