“Simple but no complaints”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

My partner and I only stayed at the Fair Hotel for one night. We found it very basic - shared bathroom (although you only needed to share with 3 other rooms), clean, and simple. It was on a very busy street and wasn't air conditioned so the windows needed to be open at night making it noisy if you're a light sleeper. We had the breakfast buffet and it was pretty simple and ran out of many things that weren't replenished. You could get a better breakfast deal elsewhere. Very close to the main train station and the price is right.

I guess you get what you pay for, but think you can probably get better for the same amount of money. Reception staff weren't very helpful and seemed to be put out by serving people. If you going in summer then I'd take a fan (or do what I did and steal it from the reception). If you bedroom is at the front then it is VERY NOISY!

If you are above the 2nd floor then forget about the wifi. It doesn't work.

They don't have any irons, (well they do, but they don't work!), So if you want anything ironed then take it across the road to the dry cleaners they will do it within the hour for about €1.5 per item.

Bedroom was functional, but I do quite like a real pillow rather than rolled up sheets stuffed in a pillow case.

Breakfast was pretty good for €8 per day.

About 10 mins walk from the Messe and about 15 mins from the train station. My advice would be, if you really can't find anything else then stay here. But don't make it your first choice.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 1st or second floor at the back of the hotel.

An excellent hotel in a good position to public transport. Very clean and efficient check in. Kudos to Alexadra the check in person on duty - very good service.

The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from Frankfurt Main Station. The roads you pass on the way have a mixed atmosphere; i.e. you pass some bars etc. The check in is on one side but to get to the rooms you have to go into the building next door. Not convenient if you have a lot of luggage. The elevator is absolutely tiny! The room was very basic but very clean. Internet connection was good.

You get what you pay for. As a regular visitor to Frankfurt, this hotel is always amongst the cheapest available. For slightly more money you can get much better hotels in much better locations. The hotel is located between the main railway station and the messe, although public transport is required to either. The rooms are not of a particularly high standard even those that have been renovated. The TV was small and the remote control didn't work. The shower leaked. Overall, not a good choice, even for the price. There is better elsewhere.

We stayed in this hotel to be near the train station. It was a short walk to the station and during the day the street was fine, however in the evening it was alittle bit rough. We didn't have any trouble but I would suggest this hotel is not suited to single women etc...

The rooms are very nice, the bed and bathroom are comfy however there is no aircon so you are just down to the fan. It was pretty hot at night and it was noisy if you opened the window.

The staff are lovely and couldn't do enough to be helpful. The breakfast was simple but nice.

All in all it served it's purpose in being near to the train station but there were better hotels closer.

Fair Hotel's located fairly close to Frankfurt's main train station. It appears to have been renovated recently and my room had a nice decor for the price. WiFi worked without a hitch. The only drawback is the noise. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
