“Small but valuable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

I stayed at this hotel when I was in Frankfurt during March 2012. The first impression that one might have would be the size of this hotel which is fairly small. But when you enter and check in you notice the efficiency of receptionist's work. He assigns your room very fast that is very good. The entire check in and check out process is really hassle free and straight forward. The room was super small but was very clean. I chose the room on street side. The breakfast is included and concerning European style breakfast; it is very good. The location and accessibility of the hotel is also perfect.
The drawbacks that I can mentioned is the speed of the wireless internet and lack of a business center that allow you to use a printer or so as most of the hotel guests are business people. I strongly recommend this hotel to those who appreciate prompt service, cleanness and value for money.

Room Tip: If you are looking for quite room you should definitely choose a room on back of the hotel, but you...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

I'm visiting Frankfurt often for work (...what else? :) ) and lately I have always stayed in this hotel. It's located 5 minutes walk from the central train station (and to the bus station, in case you travelled with a low-cost flight), in a quite and safe area. Rooms are nice, though some of them on the small side, especially if you travel alone. Bathrooms are great, with large shower.
Staff is kind and breakfast ok (maybe a bit more sweet food would improve it).
It is a good choice if you need a clean, confy and cheap place to sleep, probably not so good if you are one of those people who like to spend time in the lobby in the evening.

If you're about to stay in Frankfurt for only one or two nights (and don't expect too much) this hotel is a good place to stay. It's only a 5 minutes walk from the main railway station. However, make sure you don't walk alone there at night. Rooms seem to differ in quality and grade of renovation so by all means ask for a quiet and (if you wish so) non-smoking room. With red carpets and a small but nicely decorated bathroom, the rooms create a friendly atmosphere - as long as you don't look too close. Don't expect too much for breakfast either - nevertheless this place is a good choice for a short low-budget stay in Frankfurt.

Just returned from trip to Frankfurt, which we booked with Expedia, flying direct from Aberdeen and staying at The Topas Hotel. Took train from Frankfurt Airport into city centre (10 minutes - E3.90 each way). Topas Hotel only few minutes walk from Frankfurt Railway Station. Stayed 4 nights B/B. We had decent sized room on 4th floor with twin beds, sofa, fridge, safe,TV. plenty storage space. Bathroom with bath/shower above, sink and toilet. Rooms were being decorated while we were there. Cold buffet breakfast was adequate - juice, cereals, cold meat, cheese, eggs, yoghurt, rolls,jams, tea/coffee. Staff friendly and helpful especially Kemal Okutan on Reception. Hotel within walking distance of many sights including Romerberg (old part of city) where they were preparing Christmas Market due to open on 23 November, several large shopping areas easily accessible, financial area - many skyscrapers - and Main Tower where we took elevator to Viewing Platform on 55th Floor. Lovely walk along River Main. Hope to return to Topas Hotel sometime.

The hotel is very close to the main railway station which is perfect for an overnight stay between flights etc. The rooms are clean, simple and relatively recently furnished. The bathroom is small and the street is noisy and you need to close the window to sleep which would be challenging during summer given there is no aircon. Today was 26 degress C in Frankfurt and we had to have the window open with a fan for as long as possible (before going to bed) as the room was too warm. The receptionist is helpful and her English is excellent. The one issue that needs to be considered is that the hotel is only a few blocks from a very dodgy red light district that we didn't feel safe walking through during the day! The red light district seems avoidable, by walking around it, but it's worth noting that the general area does not seem all that good (even though the hotel is also close to the financial/business district) and the immediate area around the hotel seems OK.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main street.

The hotel is located nicely near the Hbf, only a few hundred meters walk. Area is nice and tidy, which is not the case everywhere in the Hbf surroundings. Street outside the hotel is quiet, so no too much traffic noise from there. Breakfast was ok, and staff were ok, not too friendly but not rude either. They seemed to be rather stressed as the Hotel was full booked during trade fairs.

Hotel Topas is really a great value near Frankfurt main train station. I stayed here for two nights on a huge room at the last floor (accessible only by stairs, one floor above the last one served by the elevator). The breakfast was quite complete. WiFi worked fine and there was cable TV (for those who like it). I just missed the mini-bar they say there is in all rooms in their website. Overall, I definetely recommend it, specially if you intend to use the train for day trips around Frankfurt.

Room Tip: I got room #5. Huge, located at the very top of the building (there is only 1 more room at this floo...
