“Grungy unfriendly place”
Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

Booked through bookings.com. 200 € a night outrageous for what we received. Breakfast not included . On our reservation was indicated check in 9 oclock. When we arrived at 10 the unfriendly woman at reception made us feel awful for arriving so early and said 9 oclock check in meant we could wait in the reception until room was ready. So we waited .
Internet was frustratingly slow. Place was dirty. I would never return to this hotel

Stayed February 2014, traveled on business

I spend three days in this hotel at the end of October 2013. The price and the location are OK. The rooms are clean, but refurbishment is strange and old. I will not go there again, unless the conditions are same as during my trip - I needed budget hotel, within 24 hours, during high fair season in Frankfurt.

No parking; no parking close-by; staff didn't know any better; room was beyond minuscule and VERY noisy. I checked out of the hotel after 45 minutes there and went elsewhere. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME, book elsewhere.

Room Tip: There are NO good rooms.

I stayed in the Standard Single Room (with a private bathroom) for three consecutive nights.

For this kind of room price, I think the room is reasonable and acceptable.
The room is small, but everything works fine.
The free Wi-Fi signal in the room works great, but notice that the system allows only one device to register for the Wi-Fi account.

The only problem I will complain is that I can actually hear every sound made by my neighbors.

The hotel is only a few feet from the South entrance of the Frankfort train station (across the street and around the corner). The people at the front desk were very helpful and anything they didn't know they looked up on the computer. It is walking distance from most of the main sights in the "old" city. I liked the fact that they had double doors to the rooms which kept out any hall noises. My room was very quiet, high ceilinged with the bare essentials and modern bath and shower. The breakfast was ample. I spent two nights here on my way home. I didn'y expect much but was pleasantly surprised. It is a great deal for the money.

I can see the logic behind the design of the hotel. The reception area looks modern and great for the price but the room! The room was awful. The cleanliness was questionable and the walls were filthy. Everything looked grubby and cold. If the paint and furniture were maintained then the hotel would look really smart but instead it just felt like a hostel.

I have stayed at the Colour Hotel for five years now, for the Frankfurt Book Fair. The ‘normal’ price for a room (outside the main Fair dates) is very reasonable, and even during the madness of Fair days the price is still reasonable compared with other places in Frankfurt.

Good things: Great location by the Hauptbahnhof, and only 3 minutes walk to the S-Bahn to the Messe. It’s also within 15 minutes walk of the Fair Ground if it’s a nice day; Lots of restaurants close by; Very comfortable beds; Good free wi-fi in all rooms and open access computers in the lobby area; The hot water is always hot; Very helpful and friendly reception staff

What to expect: Some rooms do not have ensuite bath/shower rooms, so be happy with a communal bathroom; The rooms are quite small and have a minimal feel, but there is always a peg or two and hangers for your clothes, and anyway who needs a 50 sq. metre suite as a place to sleep; There is a small lift serving the whole hotel (5 floors) so you can wait a bit for it to arrive when the place is full; It’s on a main road intersection but the double glazing seems quite effective; The public areas could do with some new carpeting - but I recognise that I was staying at the end of the season. .

Overall, you could (and many people do) pay a lot more, but for convenience, value for money, and a change from the budget chains’ uniformity, it’s hard to beat.

Room Tip: The higher the floor the less street noise, and towards the back is quieter.
