Bristol Hotel Frankfurt
Ranked #51 of 271 Hotels in Frankfurt
Reviewed September 16, 2013

Really outstanding, value-priced hotel near the Frankfurt main train station. Your room fee comes with a great breakfast buffet. Load up on breakfast and skip having to buy a lunch during your day of sight seeing. Unlike a lot of hotel breakfast buffets (say at the Holiday Inn Express), the Bristol people vary items. Always something different, along side your favorites like eggs and bacon.

Staff is friendly and English literate. You do, however, have to get used to the idea of European hotels. This isn't like back home in North America. Space is at a premium in Europe. The single isn't that wide but it's modern, clean, and well appointed. The bathroom has a rather small glass enclosed shower stall. If you're a bubba sized North American you're NOT going to fit in this shower.

Rooms come with a mini bar which is good for keeping some store bought beverages cool. There's an in-room safe free to use too. None of the rooms have a/c, so plan your stay according to the season. I visited late August and nights were cool enough you could make do with the good sized fan included in the room. The fan is also nice for those who need to wash some stuff on the road. The fan can be used to quickly air dry your hand wash.

Google maps will give you a bit of a round about (but correct) way to get to the hotel. Bear in mind if you walk straight from the hotel to the west end of the train station, you can enter the station through the back way, and avoid some of the sketchy types that line the streets.

Bristol Hotel is 2 minutes from the main station, has good rooms and excellent breakfast.
The only negative point is the lack of gym. Overall is great, including its structure and the surroudings. Could be there again many times.

We were recommended this hotel and it did not disappoint. Not a great neighborhood but hotel makes up for that and the bar is great - must say I don't like the fact that it is a smokers bar but it did not effect us too bad - it was pretty quiet. Hotel room are very quiet and I did not hear any outside noise in the three days we were there. Rooms are quite small and don't have aircon., they do provide a fan which is a bit noisy but does the job I guess. Installation of overhead fans would solve the problem I think.

Very pleased with hotel generally. BUT though the bar, which is part of the hotel though sounds very good, it was extremely loud and directly below. Far more like a night club that a bar. No sleep, day exploring Frankfurt ruined. Real shame.

Dear Turbotom!

Thanks for your recent stay.

Good to read that you really liked the hotel in general.
To bad, that there was a private function in our bar which was to noisy.
I can assure, that this was an excepsion and is not normal!

Just want to let you know, that we are very proud of our bar as this is one of the best in town and very well visited by locals.
Sorry again, that it was top noisy the past weekend.

But hope to welcome you back in the future.

Cheers jeffrey

Very pleasant & nice hotel at reasonable prices. It offers attentive service and an outstanding breakfast, which you can take (subject to the weather being fine) in the beautiful, quiet and quite Asian looking garden. One may smoke in the garden as well as in the bar. And as a smoker, you are not allocated to the worst room they eventually may have, as it seems to be the policy in many other places. This hotel earns a lot of 'pro's' and just one 'con': It is the missing airco. Although they try to make up for ith with fans, better not choose too hot a summer day...
