Nearest neighbours is Steinberger and a Police station. Exit the hbf at the messe exit and you are getting there in minutes. Charming service and good standard of the rooms, price considered. Aircon in the rooms. Area around Hbf is not the nicest but this was OK.

Nothing to complain. The crew was speaking English and they were very helpfull. The room was quiet, modern, very clean and quite large. The breakfast was tasty. There's the main train station just behind the corner and Exhibition Center is about 10 minutes on foot. River Main is also not far. Great choice !!!

I stayed here overnight to catch the flight next day. Rooms are small. But good ambience and lighting. Bathroom was bigger for the size of the room. Very good internet speed. I am a non smoker. So the idea of non smoking hotel is a thumps up from my side. Staff is very courteous and happy to help. Only negative... More

As I had checked an extra bag to bring to a trade show in Frankfurt, I greatly appreciated that I only had about 200 feet to walk once I left the Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof to the hotel. Not much to look at from the outside, the front desk is manned by either an older Japanese gentleman or a younger Pakistani, both... More

Only stayed for one night on our way to Heidelberg and onwards but the room was great, comfy bed, clean and tidy. Staff was friendly. Breakfast buffet was 8€ each and well worth it. Super close to the train station which was partly why we picked it in the first place.

Nothing bad to say! Everything was good or excellent. Staff very friendly and helpfull and the breakfast is very good. It´s modern, very clean and 1 km walking from the center and 1 minute from the train station. The parking for the car is also very good. The heaters and air conditioned work properly without any nasty noises! Internet wi-fi... More

I’m surprised I haven’t reviewed this hotel before - I’ve stayed here a number of times; and not, because it isn’t worth it! The hotel is right on the north-west corner of Frankfurt’s central station (Hauptbahnhof); this makes it extremely well situated for both late arrivals by train as well as exploring the city (which is extremely walkable). I’ve stayed... More

At first sight of the hotel our expectations were not the best. On entering the reception we thought this would be an average place. Well it turned out to be a great hotel. Once up to our room, despite the unusual lift which requires some walking up/down a few stairs to access, we were surprised. The room was modern and... More

We searched for a hotel to switch from the train (arriving one evening) to a long-distance bus leaving at the main station (next day). Therefore, the location of the hotel is nearly ideal (you just have to cross the main station) and you are even close to the city. Walking to the city center is possible in 10/15 minutes, although...

For 40 Euro this hotel represents great value for those who only need a place to rest. Friendly staff and rooms are clean and newly renovated. However, if you paid the rack rate of 160 Euro, this hotel is horrible
