While I don't remember the rooms looking bad, and the location is what it is (downtown and close to the train station, but in a relatively sordid, dirty and unpleasant area), I did have a pretty surreal experience with the guy working at the reception. I had booked my room just one hour before from an Internet cafe because the... More

Stayed here for a weekend in frankfurt. ..sure, the place is in the red light district and is surrounded by druggies, but to be honest, you get good value for your money here! It's the best place in the district. ..The 3 star rating is however a little too overrated. ..room was ok, better than the other surrounding hotels. ..just... More

the rooms were tidy and clean, decent price. the area surrounding the hotel leaves a lot to be desired red light area, drug use.. despite us nick-naming the area CDC (crack den central) there was little more than a passing glance from any of the users that frequently hung around the outside of the hotel.. If seeing users and drug... More

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
