This hotel has been around for a few decades but has been tastefully remodeled. the service is good, the room we had was comfortable although the smell of tobacco smoke in the hallway was noticeable. The location, right across the street from the main train station is a great convenience, especially if you fly into Frankfurt and plan on travelling... More

This was our second time in this hotel.Rooms are OK. Best location, in front of Hauptbanhof (main railway Station) .This gives you an extra, because the station is full of shops to buy everything from food to souvenirs.Besides, you have lots of trains to and from Frankfurt Airport (the trip takes only 10 min) Good hotel, friendly staff. Excellent breakfast.... More

Just over 12 months ago I gave this hotel a favourable review. Unfortunately, following the latest 2 day stay; I now regret to say I have to retract many of the previous comments. Whilst the location of the hotel and excellent buffet breakfast remain as positives, several negatives emerged during the recent stay. Firstly, the temperature in Frankfurt was in... More

Being located right next to the main train station the hotel is very convenient if you are stopping by in Frankfurt. I stayed in a single room which was perfectly adequate - the free minibar was an unexpected bonus and breakfast was fine. You can walk along the river to the city centre in about 20 minutes or so.

Pleasantly surprised by this Hotel. Booked due to it's convenient location to the Railway Station. Also easy walking distance to city centre via river frontage. Room charming & clean, good bathroom. The breakfast was amazingly good. Free mini bar a bonus. Loved it.

If you're looking for the convenience of being next to the train station (not a great neighborhood for going out by the way) — and you want something on the affordable side, this will do. During the summer when we were there, it was pretty awful not to have air conditioning, but at least each of the rooms had a... More

Hotel Excelsior is an older hotel with basic amenities & rooms. Breakfast buffet was good & included in the room rate, & had a good selection of breakfast items to choose from. The hotel is opposite the main Frankfurt train station, so whilst being convenient, it was noisy with the traffic & passing pedestrians if the balcony doors are left... More

Rooms are clean but average. This hotel is convenient if you are travelling by train and just want to exit the train station and go to bed. Parking is $20 a night and hard to get into and out of. The one night we stayed there we had a room facing the train station. about 10pm groups of hobos started... More

Room was funky but very clean. Great location to train station and an amazing breakfast. Neighborhood is not the greatest but we were not there for a resort experience. Plenty of resteraunts within walking distance. We used it as a rest stop to get acclimatized to European time before catching a train to Munich the next morning

Reception staff very friendly, housekeeping staff very unfriendly. Location opposite main Train Station, so perfect for short overnight stay. As in most cities, surroundings near Train Station not very inviting but still safe enough. Hotel interior is very old fashioned, furniture seem from the late seventies. Elevator very tiny and old..a plus is of course free Minibar ( and There... More
