This is my 2nd stay here en route from NYC to Singapore. For the price I paid Eur55 a nite, I have not much to complain even though the room does not come with a kettle to make my own beverage ( a must if you need a hot beverage). This hotel is located in a residential area but only... More

A pleasant little hotel conveniently located. The room was clean certainly not luxurious by any stretch but a good base to explore the city from. The breakfast was buffet style and sets you up for a day at the christmas markets. Staff are almost invisible maybe lacking a smile but certainly not rude. I'd happily return due to the cost...

I have stayed in this hotel repeatedly, and they have done some improvements. You have a free Wifi now which worked fine. TV has been updated to a flatscreen, even the quality of many channels is still poor. The staff was friendlier this time. My room was spacious and clean. This is not a fancy hotel and I always hear... More

Small but clean rooms. The room do kit have air conditioning and in summer it gets pretty hot inside. However, there is a medium size fridge to keep things cold, which was quite useful. Hotel Is not far from the city center. Good service.

The room was tiny but I didn't expect or want anything more for 45 Euro, however one of the pillows had blood stains on it... No air conditioning either so room was hot. Chocolate in my backpack melted within two hours.

I liked this place pretty well despite it's minor eccentricities. It can be difficult to tell from reviews if the negative ones are from whiners or are legit. I'd say in this case, that the reviews you're seeing here are about right. The place is, as reported, a little bit strange and a little cramped, but none of it turned... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in May, the room was clean but a little small. Still it was very nice for being a 3* hotel. The front reception desk was friendly and helpful. It's located on a quiet street in a residential neighborhood. If you don't mind walking, it's a great location not too far from city center. There is... More

As with all Frankfurt hotels during fair time, I found the hotel to be really expensive compared with the facilities available. The wifi worked well though . I was unhappy with the way the rooms were cleaned, the glasses were left unwashed and it looked like the rooms were cleaned in a hurry. Very ungerman. I did not like the... More

We stayed for 3 nights. Excellent location, close to all amenities and on a very quiet side street. We checked in with a pleasant and helpful receptionist, housekeeping requests (extra pillows, towels) were met quickly and courteously. Decor a little dated and exterior decidedly stark, but we slept well and felt welcome. It's fairly basic, so suitable if you're on... More

After reading the reviews on here I was dreading going but I was happily surprised. The receptionist was really friendly and helpful upon arrival and my room was really big and roomy with a fridge and nice bathroom. I noticed no dirt and for the price this was good. I did not try breakfast but it was only 8 Euros.... More
