“Clean, Friendly Functional Hotel”
Reviewed October 4, 2010

Stayed here for one night in September - it is a nice, functional hotel - but after the charm of the German rhine/romantic road, the overall aesthetic of the hotel struck us as cold.
The staff were very helpful - provided great advice regarding where to go for dinner. Breakfast was 'there' - compared to buffet breakfasts we had in other areas of Germany the selection seemed sparse - no muslei...alas...

Whenever we have family in town, we get them a room at the Hotel Cult. We had family and friends stay there while they were in town for our wedding last year. The rooms are very clean and the breakfast buffet is supposed to be good. The rates are usually much cheaper than for any of the hotels downtown. The subway stop is literally right across the street and it will take you downtown within 5 minutes. The tram number 15 and 16 also stop in front of the hotel and they will take you to Sachsenhausen. There is a Lidl supermarket and a gas station across the street which are great to buy drinks and snacks. I would definitely recommend this hotel when in town to visit family, for vacation or for business.

This hotel is good value for money. Situated a 15 minutes walk from the centre of Frankfurt (a stoll along the river) close to S Bahn station and opposite to a Lidl supermarket - it is not the prettiest of locations. However the rooms are clean and functional and the beds comfortable. Breakfast is buffet style with ample supplies of everything including some fresh fruit. Bathroom was small but well designed with large walk-in shower, soap prvided but non of the usual freebies. Down point were the towels, which although perfectly clean, were worn and frayed. In an otherwise organised hotel, I cannot imagine why these have not been replaced!! Small bar area. Helpful and friendly staff. Plenty of restaurants and shops nearby.

Both my b/f and I loved this hotel. There was everything we needed. I can't comment on the location since we didn't go to the city but were just passing through. The breakfast is very nice.

I'm not sure how this got to be listed as the #1 business hotel in Frankfurt. It isn't a business hotel at all -- no in-room safes, no ironing board, no fitness center, no restaurant and room service, no air conditioning, no real luxury. All things a business traveler would take for granted. I don't recommend it for someone using it a base during a business trip.

On the other hand, it does have free & speedy internet service (wireless throughout the hotel). It also has an included breakfast, with a nice outdoor seating as well. The hotel appears to cater towards the hostel / backpacking crowd, and the guests run the same during breakfast and around the lobby's internet terminals.

Its price is hefty compared to the standard youth hostel, but well beneath Frankfurt's generally expensive luxury range. The showers are hot, the in-room TV has CNN in English (and that's it!), the beds are comfortable enough (although not king, they can be pushed together for a poor man's king), and did I mention that the internet and breakfast were all included.

We found this online after showing up in frankfurt without a place to stay. Easy to find from the subway and really interesting inside. Cool design - very german. Staff is friendly.

Location is on the fringe and you think you're in the middle of nowhere but five minute walk and you're walking past places that I'm sure would cost you 2x as much. Watch out for the free military-grade massage chair.

just got back from Europe- we stayed for 2 nights at Cult. It worked well for us. We took the SBahn from the airport and got out right across the hotel. The hotel is in a nice area with plenty of pubs and small streets and a short walk from downtown. The food was great (breakfast included). The value for the price is great, and would defo go back if we'll be in the area. Just a note for American travellers: the rooms are quite small, which is common in Europe. So don't expect king size beds in oversized rooms. Our room faced the road, which can be noisy at times. As it was quite cold we closed the window which blocked the noise completely. But in summer, not sure about it..the place has no A/C so just keep that in mind. But for us it was just perfect!
