This was the third year my son and I visited Germany at Christmas to visit the Christmas markets and take in a football match. We normally stay in a 4 or 5 star hotel so the accommodation itself is likely to be of a good standard which again was the case with the Steigenberger Metropolitan. It was an exceptional deal with a superior deluxe twin bedded room with excellent bathroom facilities. The deal also included breakfast and free Wi-Fi. The breakfast was continental but if you want something British when they ask you whether you want eggs then this can include an excellent scrambled egg with bacon. The only issue we had during our stay with the hotel was soft feathered pillows but these were eventually replaced when asked for alternative ones.
The hotel's location is directly opposite the main railway station for surrounding areas, other area of Germany and for us more importantly the main airport.(3 stops on the underground). There is no problem with noise from the station and our room was on the front of the hotel directly opposite it. The area around the station does look a bit seedy but we never felt threatened at any time. The only issue I have which I would contest with other reviewers is the hotels location to the centre of Frankfurt and at Christmas the market. It is for an older person a good 15 minute walk and if you have been walking round the shops and the market all day the last thing you want to do is walk back to the hotel and then have to go out again of a night time to eat. However, cabs are readily available at the station as are trams and the underground and daily/weekend tickets are available so there are alternatives to walking. Before you get into the centre of Frankfurt there are a quite a good number of reasonable restaurants but there are also the tacky kebab and fast food shops as with any other large city these days.
As for the hotel and it's facilities I would have no hesitation in recommended it for a stay in Frankfurt and would have thought it was ideal for the visiting businessman working in Frankfurt.
