“A little bit dated, but well run and friendly.”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Two night stay on business in the area. Room a little dated, but the public areas clean, efficient staff, warm, good breakfast choices, hard to fault really. Might insist on a proper double bed next time rather than two singles pushed together. Bed was also a bit soggy/bouncy compared to the normal level firm ones I prefer. Really just nitpicking to get up to 200 characters, this hotel is good.

I have stayed at the City Hotel many times over the years and it is my only choice when visiting my hometown of Bad Vilbel. I always get the same room and it feels almost like coming home. The place is clean and comfortable, my only suggestion would be that the rooms are due for a little sprucing up. I have seen the yellow curtains for 10 years now, lol.
There are supermarkets, a bank and a small restaurant in walking distance, for everything else one would need a car.
Parking outside (free) has never been a problem except one time, where the hotel was crowded and I had to park underneath. I do agree that hotel guests should not have to pay for parking when there is no space outside.

I always reserve directly with the hotel and communication is great. Front Desk personnel is friendly and efficient.

The rates vary greatly depending on whether there is a Trade Show in Frankfurt or some other event, so the value ranges from excellent to fair.

Is a nice clean hotel but is basic. No food after 10 pm so don't arrive late. No a/c in the summer. Would stay again. Restaurant is pleasant.

After looking for hotels near the train station and finding nothing available, my customer booked this hotel for me at the spur of the moment - I got the last room! I had a great stay with a large, clean room. The bar area was nice and the attendants were friendly and had very good service. Breakfast, though quick for me, was a nice buffet. The hotel is about 25 minutes from Frankfurt by train and a 2 minute bus ride down the hill to the SudBahnhof. I would definitely recommend the hotel if you want to be close to Frankfurt, but not in the middle of it. Or, if you need a place to stay that's close and everything else is sold out!

Everything was good but location is in nowhere. Only Lidl and no restaurants. While menu in hotel's restaurant is very simple. Breakfast is very simple.

I had one night at the unfortunately named Bad Vilbel. I was there on business so it's location was good for me, but if you want to be close to frankfurt then this is not the hotel for you. Its about a €40 cab ride from the airport, and there isnt much of interest within walking distance. However the hotel itself is great, with big rooms, juliette balcony, large clean bathroom, wireless broadband @ €8 per hour (you pay T-Mobile for this, it doesnt go on your bill). It also has a wellness centre, with sauna, steam room and spa, which I used and it was very clean, although personally i prefer them a bit hotter. Front desk staff were very helpful with excellent english. Only negative was that there were trucks unloading early in the morning, so if you are a light sleeper, earplugs may be the go.
