“Impressive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2011

Not only is this hotel the most convenient to the train station in Frankfurt, its service, breakfast, and amenities are exceptional for a hotel in this category. Upon check-in, we were offered a room on the quiet side of the building, which we of course accepted and appreciated. The free minibar had twice as many beverages as we could consume: two bottles of Pepsi, orange juice, still water, and beer and one bottle of "gourmet" water. The breakfast buffet, including Western and Japanese items, was bountiful and delicious. Apparently, the rooms have not been renovated for quite some time, but they were spotlessly clean with comfortable beds. We will go back.

Room Tip: Request the back of the hotel.

I saw some people are complaining about the hotel, but I have to say that for the pice and the location this is a best place to stay if you want to walk and visit frankfurt for day or two. I stayed in Hilton, Double Tree, Four Season, Trump hotel so this is not that type of the hotel but I can guaranty that is batter then some Clarion hotel, Best Western hotel or Holiday inn.
I will stay at this hotel any time when I visit Franfurt.
If you staying in Frankfurt for one night, its better to stay at this hotel and take a train from the airpot for 3.90e each way. If you book any hotel around the airport you going to pay a higher price for hotel and taxi is going to charge you 30e each way to take you to downtown.

Room Tip: Take the train from airport to this location 3.90e

We stayed here for 2 nights, 6 of us 3 per room, we had 3 teenage boys. If you want luxurrious and modern rooms this hotel is not fir you. If you are after decent sized, clean rooms with lots of little free extras this place is great. Freebies include 5 star breakfast with lots of variety, free wifi, free mini bar!, free ironing service!. The reception staff were friendly with advice where to eat! The rooms are opposite the train station, can't hear the trains but there is a fair bit of traffic about. We would recommend this hotel as it represents great value!!!

Excelsior - excels in its hospitality, cleanliness, excellent food, and fantastic customer service.

The hotel is located next to the Frankfurt am Main 'Hauptbahnhof' - just across the road. It is a very unassuming, simple hotel with fantastic courteous staff.

I have been staying in this hotel for more than 15 years on all my visits to Germany and always been made 'at Home' by the courteous staff.

The hotel rates are extremely cost effective and value for money. As soon as you check in - be it any time of the day - you are welcomed by hot coffee or good brands of tea and cakes - free on the house !

The refrigerator inside our room is always filled with mineral water, juices and some beer - every day repleninshed - again free of cost. The morning breakfast is a large spread, plenty to eat with fruits in addition.

When you come back after a long day;s work, you find the room services and maintained with clean sheets and very clean toilets - that makes you fresh once again.

The rates have been aroung 80 Euros to 190 Euros depending on the season. But for frequent visitors like me - there are 'special rates.

Most of it all - the hauptbahn strasse- is right in front where there are many eateries to have a sumptuous dinner and have a good night sleep.

Hotel Excelsior, Frankfurt am Main is a great Value for money.

Free minibar (yes that's right), excellent breakfast, free ironing, free tea and cakes during the day, very central location - this is a really good hotel for the price. The rooms are a little small but everything is there.

Stayed there in May and again in June. On the first occasion we arrived at 7.00am (after a flight from Hong Kong) and we didn't expect to get a room before the afternoon. Much to our surprise we were accommodated there and then. No questions asked.

The location is perfect. The service is top notch and the breakfasts are good. There's no aircon which might be problematic in summer but they do provide a fan and the windows can be opened. Overall it's good value for money.
