Don't expect comfort,just a nice matras to sleep on.Perfect for short city trip. Room is not decorated but you are in Frankfurt to explore the city after all. Toilet and bathroom were clean. The hotel has a good location,walking distance from the attractions.

I stayed this place for one night booked via internet 43€ including breakfast. The location was perfect 100 meter from the main train station. The guy at the desk was friendly and early checking request was available at 09:00 liked, +18hrs travel from Phuket was worthy. Unfortunately no free water available at room's freezer, the freezer was empty but have... More

I stayed here for €32 for a night because i had an early flight out of the airport.Had to leave the key at the front, several times when arriving, there was no one at the front desk so keys could have easily been taken by a witty thief (room numbers printed on each key!). There was no bell to alert... More

Location excellent for travellers on transit and need to be near the Frankfurt Main HBF.Room is clean and quiet.Non-airconditioned.Tap water smells a bit funny. The man at the counter(night shift) was not too friendly on our first visit but he was pleasant the second time we checked in. Surrounding area is quite filthy with many homeless people but it's safe... More

The room didn't even have a telephone to call the reception. The front desk is manned by 2 managers - one for each: day & night shifts. The in room WiFi connection is good and upon checking in, I was given separate passwords per device. Hotel is a 7 min walk from the main railway station - Frankfurt am Main... More

Really handy location, just five minutes walk from the railway station. Rooms are functional and clean(ish) although our shower head had to be balanced to sit in the right position. I actually enjoyed this battle of wills. However, staff at reception desk were unfriendly and unhelpful. I asked for the wifi code/password and was told they would give it to... More

I was in Frankfurt for a couple days in business. Hotel is located near central station. There are a bit homeless people on the streets in that location. Service man was a bit rude. Room was quite nice but price was to high for it. Next time in Frankfurt I'll try to find another place.

Situated close to the main rail station and close to the river it is difficult to fault the location. Rooms are set back from the street so the only impediment to a guilt night is inconsiderate fellow travellers (we had a few of those). Rooms are clean and well appointed and represent good value for money. We were able to... More
