This is a very modern hotel in a perfect location but there are too many things I didn't like to return. The view of the city is nice and the overall ambiance of the hotel can instantly pull you in. The issues: a huge church clock goes off ever 15 min starting early and ending late, room service is greatly... More

Sophisticated accommodations; generous provision of sparkling water; internet access; very clean and well maintained; love the "rainfall" showers; and there is access to rooftop spa and sundeck. However, the front desk staff could improve their attitude - work on customer appreciation.

Before starting, I have to say that I grew up in KL and had been following the "history" of this building very closely over the past 10 years. Kudos to Hans for turning this into a hotel. Now to my experience: Started out a bit strange, I received an offer via email, stating the price and requesting a cc, which... More

I flew in from New York to watch the Germany vs Australia soccer match and had a reservation on 3/25. However, when I arrived that day the hotel door was blocked off and when I finally could make it inside, the staff was very rude. They first tried to refuse me at the door and then told me that they... More

A very nice hotel in a terrific location, but the hotel staff need some (re)training. Check-in took a while, check-out took forever - for a business property, standing in long line for almost 15 minutes is unacceptable. The hotel bar staff were quasi attentive and appeared more interested in chatting amongst themselves versus serving guests.

With only 1 night to experience a German Christmas market, our taxi driver took us here to see if there were rooms as we had no wifi to research on our own. Wonderful hotel in every way: location only €6 taxi ride from the train terminal, huge modern room, super comfy bed, friendly and helpful desk staff (we had no... More

We spent 14days in Europe and this review is about our final 2 days before packing up to go home after our whirlwind journey! SAKS was a great way to finish this trip! Much more space in Germany in general with the two hotels we stayed at! But SAKs modern conveniences and staff were above expectations!

Just stayed at this hotel for three days on a business trip. My original plan was to just stay and Frankfurt and train in for my event and I am very happy I changed plans.
