I was there in August, for 5 nights, on business. The best thing about this small hotel is the friendliness of the staff. They are incredibly welcoming and helpful, but without being to "chummy".
Hotel is not a chain, which I like. Hotel, breakfast rooms and rooms are tidy and clean. I had a small room but was offered the choice between a bigger and a smaller one, the latter with balcony. Considering the hot weather I chose the latter, and it was good. The furniture is not the newest, it could do with a revamp soon, but it is okay. What I found frustrating is that the hotel underlines its green credentials and claims to be environmentally friendly, hence the notice in each room that towels would only be changed if thrown on the floor. I like to do sth for the environment, so I was disappointed that all my towels were changed on a daily basis, even though I didn't want them to. Management should look into this.
On the plus side: There were many single travellers who were on business in Frankfurt, so it doesn't feel strange to have breakfast alone.
Breakfast is good, varied, fresh produce (fresh fruit and fresh bread). boiled eggs if you want, fresh tea, coffee, espresso, latte... Choice is not gigantic, but this isn't a five star hotel. Free daily newspapers (though German, there might have been the Financial Times, too). The best thing: you can have breakfast in the garden if the weather is nice - a real bonus and a wonderful start into the day.
the location is fairly central, though a quiet residential street with some gardens and very safe, though if you walk to the station there are some grubby streets with prostitutes and game halls. Main station is about 10-15 minutes walk, tram stop 5 minutes - easy to find and safe to walk.
There aren't many places to eat around, which is the downside of the area. It is mostly business, so packed during the day but emptier at night. You have to venture a bit further for larger choice.
All in all, I recommend this hotel for a shorter stay in the city. It is definitely good value for your money, good central location, quiet and you are made feel welcome. There are many hotels which don't manage that;-)
