We stayed here five nights and were extremely pleased with our accommodations. The suite was very clean and the daily breakfast was well worth the extra charge. It was quiet at night also. I would highly recommend this place to stay in the middle of the old city.

A quaint hotel in a Beautiful town that transports you to a bygone era. The hotel exterior is fachwerk and inside the wooden beams are surreal. The decor could be described as kitch but it all adds to the charm. The rooms are clean and well sized for the price. Loads of restaurants nearby.

At only a few kilometers distance from Frankfurt this hotel offers a splendid atmosphere with friendly service. The right alternative for the big overly expensive hotels in Frankfurt. Situated in the beautiful center of Gelnhausen. The reception of the hotel has creative, free of charge solutions to overcome parking problems in the very busy center of the city. We were... More

We stayed in the Altstadt hotel in Gelnhausen for a long weekend during July 2013. We took 'Apartment' room type since it had a kitchen in it. We didn't take the breakfast in our stay (since we booked through Booking.com - breakfast was not included, otherwise if you book through the hotel it is normally included). The hotel is located...

“have a back up reservation just in case they don't honor your reservation.”

“There are several types of room - check on the hotel website which suits you best. We took the 'apartment' type as we wanted a kitchen - which turned out very useful and equipped.”
