“Oh dear :S”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

RED LIGHT DISTRICT ALERT! Stayed here for two nights because it was a fair price (45 euros a night). The reception area is cordoned off with what looked like bullet-proof glass. The service was as shonky as the establishment itself. Pimps and prostitutes adorn the levels of this hostel. Elevator wouldn't take us to the ground floor, internet didn't work, tap in our room put out a mere dribble, the heaters were noisy, we weren't shown how to use the really dodgy door key, and our room smelt odd.. definitely wouldn't recommend this place. The only good point was that it was centrally located, however in an awful part of the R.L.D :S

My son and I stayed in this hotel on the last leg of our German vacation during March. After spending a week in Bavaria and enjoying every second of it our one night stay in Frankfurt was very disappointing. Mosel Hotel is in the red light district of Frankfurt near the Hauptbanhof. The patrons of the nearby strip clubs and gambling establishments aren't of the type that you would want to be hanging out outside of your hotel. Very sketchy situation after dark. The hotel staff were actually very friendly but between their rudimentary English and my rudimentary German it was a little tough to thoroughly communicate. There were no bathrooms in the hotel rooms just one bathroom at the end of the hall on each floor. No air conditioning or heat in the rooms either. Cleanliness was an issue as well seeing as the floor we stayed on had an offputting odor throughout our one night stay. The overall ambience of the hotel reminded me of a hotel you would see in a movie about soviet-era Russia. Paid an exorbitant amount for my one night stay since it was a "holiday" (St. Patrick's Day).

I booked 2 rooms. I thought/assumed they were en-suite, they were not. Lift did not go to 5/6th floor, so had to walk up from 3/4th. I could have walked down from 7th if the reception had told me. There was no hot water in my room. About 30seconds of hot water in the bathroom. No bedside light and the curtains fell off when pulled. My customer's room was worse!! Same problems with curtains. Wardrobe door had fallen off before we arrived. Bed falling apart. TV had no sound and was propped up on 2 chairs. Sofa stained. Very dodgy people in the street outside hotel. Appalling value for money!!!! I have never stayed in a hotel this bad and to be charged €149 is a complete insult.
