Reviewed January 4, 2013

I had zero complaints about this hotel. I had no problems finding it from the Abahn, reception was efficient and friendly. Room was well equipped and comfortable.. Location near the old town was very convenient, though it is on the far end of the old town from the sights and is by no means in the center of the old town. Breakfast was fine (though expensive as with all hotels). Did not try pool or sauna. Plenty or restaurants/cafes in old town

This hotel is fine, but you do not get what you pay for. It is not in the center of town, rather on the edge of the fressgasse. While the area around the hotel is quiet, in the room you can hear EVERYTHING. Maybe our room was above a conference hall, but beginning before 4am staff seemed to be moving tables around a room, LOUDLY, which lasted til 6. Breakfast is overcroweded....does not seem the restaurant is big enough for how many guests can occupy the hotel at a time. We went at prime time, but that is still no excuse to have to wait 30 minutes for food to be refilled and to get cups etc. The facility was clean, simple, but not really a 4 star. The hotel should probably be priced at about half of what it is, and then I would say it was on par with other hotel of its class, and it would then get a better rating from me.

We arrived in the early evening and found that the hotel was not far from the station. The check-in was simple and we (my wife and I and 17 year old son) were able to get in to our rooms quickly so we could meet our daughter who is studyuing in Heidelberg. As part of our package we had one free drink each in the bar which was small and with very friendly staff. The hotel was busy witha conference while we were there, but this did not affect us at all. The rooms were good with high ceilings.

We were 2 nights in this hotel.
Check In:
The Check In Procedure was complicated. 1 Reservation for 2 rooms we have to do check in separately. We have to wait for the room and after 30min i asked the front office about our room, they do not know about our reservation. When we finaly got our room key, we got another surprise, 1 room is smoking room even we ordered non smoking room, but the front office crew give us smoking room. When we complained the staf said the hotel fully booked, i saw him our reservation which writen "non smoking room" he finally give us non smoking room.

Restaurant:
On the 1st day when we want to get our breakfast, we have to pay directly and the waitress said that they can not charge our breakfast to our room. I ask her to check why we can not charge our breakfast to our room, after 1 hour she said that the problem was internal transfer system in the hotel.
At night we take our dinner in the hotel, the personal was great, when i get my meal, the french fries was cold, i ask the waiters to warm up my fries and they change my fries.

On the 2nd day when we want to get our breakfast, they can accept to charge our breakfast to our room but have to fill up only the bill, but all tables was dirty, when i ask 1 waitress if we may use the table, we got no answer, after a while we decide to use one table and ask the same waitress to clean up the table, again she do not say anything and clean up the table roughly, many cutlery was falling down the the floor and she said nothing and left us and let some dirty dishes there. Fortunately 1 waitress realize our problem and she clean up the table. When we take our breakfast on buffet and my mother in law sit and wait for us, the same waitress who received us ask my mother in law in English again our room number, event in the bill was written on which room we are staying!

Room:
Our rooms was clean and enough space. There are water boiler, 2 cups, coffee and tea available.
At about 17:00 when we get our naps, someone knock the door 2 times and enter our room without to say "Room Service". She said she want to controll the room

Swiming Pool & Fitness room availabe for free.

Parking: Hotel parking available.

We will not stay in this hotel again.

I think the description states that they are in the center of the old town but i would say they are on the edge of the beginning of the old high street(hauptstrasse). Nonetheless, nice stay, perfectly good staff, great breakfast. Fairly clean. Good pool, robes to wear down to the pool. expect mixed gender partially or fully nude people in steam room as per German standard. Quieter than other hotels i've stayed in- don't know if it's due to soundproofing or because i usually stay in cheaper places. Certainly, I could not hear the music they play in the hallways (speaker just outside my room) while inside my room and i never heard any other guests in other rooms(tv, showers,toilets flushing, walking past, etc).

Shuttle bus from Frankfurt airport was good when you book in advance except they did not take credit card(as we were told) and the shuttle driver was your typical curt German who initially refused to take us as we did not have a reservation (we missed our initial shuttle bus as flight was late. we called and were told it was fine to take the next shuttle. phone service good, shuttle driver difficult and initially would not honor our negotiated rate or reservation change) As there are 2 terminals in Frankfurt airport and the shuttle only leaves from only one of them, you might have to get to the other terminal. there are 2 options, via bus or via sky tram. Bus was much easier/closer/less up and down on escalators had we known but the tram was fun for the kids. both are free.

Thought breakfast was fairly comprehensive. Bacon, eggs (hard boiled and fried), sometimes omlet on demand, 2-3 types sausages, pancakes, hash browns, cooked mushrooms, assorted breads/minimuffin/strudel, 4-5 cold meats, smoked salmon, 4-5 cheeses, greek-like salad stand, 7 types fresh fruit/ fruit salad/canned fruit, 4-5 types of yogurts, muesli/cereal. teas/coffee. no hot chocolate. busy but not unbearable.

Room Tip: room 255. quiet and a away from elevator (but there is a shortcut once you figure it out.

From the check in the staff are very much helpful and their service is to the up mark than many hotels in Europe. The room is pretty big and nicely maintained. House keeping is so good as front office. we stayed there for 4 nights and its awesome. Only thing they could improve their variety in breakfast and include some more than normal American breakfast.
