Hotel Frankenland
Ranked #3 of 31 Hotels in Bad Kissingen
Reviewed June 6, 2012

I had the pleasure of attending a conference in this beautiful town.

The public space is beautifully designed. Bright and spacious hall leading to the rooms. There is a bar/lounge off the main lobby.

My room was larger than your typical European hotel room. Pleasant minimalist decor. A drawback - no air conditioning and it was unseasonably hot.

The food was incredible. Always buffet style with great selections. I didn't try the restaraunt or clubs on site. I didn't partake in the spa but the pools and spa areas were raved about by others.

My only major complaint was the conference venue. The rooms were far flung in different corners of the hotel and it took time time to master the rabbit warren halls to find specific rooms.

Another drawback is you have to subscribe to t-mobile for the Internet. Although I was only there for four nights, it was more cost effective to purchase a month access. Regardless, it is a rip-off.

These points aside, it is still a 5 star property.

Lots of 60+ crowd. Food was excellent and included with my conference. Workout area was quite good with dedicated lap pool, several each of stair steppers, elliptical, stationary bike, and weight machines. One excellent treadmill. Very sunny which can make it a little warm. I wouldn't choose to go to this town, but for a conference I wouldn't dread it, except for the wifi. I paid 45 euro for a month of wifi from Telkom, and I had to stand in the bathroom to get a signal. Hotel really needs to install the routers so that there is sufficient signal in all the rooms.

Was there for a conference which included all meals. Very limited parking for 8 euro/day~we used the Theatre parking around the corner for 3 euro/day. Staff quite friendly and spoke english well. Our room had a balcony which we were unable to use as the sliding glass doors would not open making the room a bit stuffy. View from the 4th floor of a church was nice. Room was clean with thin euro type pillows/duvets. Minibar/fridge empty~you must order what you would like it stocked with 24 hours in advance. Bathroom had skimpy towels and the crazy shower "door" opened in 3 "stages" and we always managed to have the floor soaking every time. The bath/room amenities were non-existant except for small soap and tiny bottle of shampoo. Did have a good hairdryer and the reading lights in the room was good when one of you wanted to read and the other sleep.

Breakfast was typical and the staff were quick with the coffee and pleasant. Lunch and dinner was buffet style due to the conference and was "institutional" in it's presentation and quality and lacked freshness/flavor. The bar downstairs was nice and open and though their selection of wines was small it was ok and the prices were fair.

You had to pay by the hour for wifi or use one of the 2 computers they had for their guests. I did not use their "spa" facilities so can not comment on them but the pool area looked well kept.
It is very close to the walking areas of Bad Kissingen and their Hauptstrasse (walking/shopping zone) which was very convenient and pleasant to walk early in the morning or evening.

It was an ok experience for a conference but lacked the ambiance/quality of a 4 star hotel.

The Hotel Frankenland is a good choice for a conference. The hotel is neither charming nor quaint, but it is run efficiently. Our room was rather spare (white, gray, black color scheme), but it was large and clean. The bathroom was equipped with modern fixtures and was fastidiously clean. Our breakfast, lunch, and dinner were all part of the conference package and were tasty and abundant. Especially notable were the cook-to-order items at lunch (fish, stir fry). Eating on my own for lunch in the hotel's informal restaurant, I found their kase spaetzle were excellent, comparing very favorably with the absolute best I have ever eaten. The meeting rooms were large, and airy. Snacks provided during breaks featured a wide variety of fresh fruit, cakes and pastries. The workout room was small for a facility of this size. Finally, there are on-going renovations throughout the hotel, with much use of a light palate (gray, white, chrome and white marble). There are still areas of the hotel that use a color scheme from the '80s ( the unique German penchant for orange, green, and brown). These areas look very dated and are probably the route cause for some of the criticisms.

Friendly staff at the reception, but barely spoke English.

No wifi internet anywhere in the hotel (only two computers in the lobby, free of charge).

Very spacious room, but was cold on arrival, with outdated furniture and facilities.

Empty minibar.

Terrible soundproofing.

Good central location.

Has the potential to be a very good hotel, after a lot of renovations.

Spacious but run down rooms, balcony was air-con view backyard walk-out, mini bar was totally empty and they informed that drinks had to be ordered in advance, so I ordered a bottle of water which arrived the next day at 8 pm at charged 4.5 EUR. Spa area nothing special, just ok. Friendly staff though, guests 60+

The Frankenland Hotel is located in the heart of BAd Kissingen. Which is very good in case you dont travel by car and the hotel doesnt have a conference. Otherwise its very recommendable to reserve a parking lot ahead (5EUR per day).
The rooms are typical for 4*, functional without an eye catching highlight.
The hotel has a spa area and swimming pool is included - but not the one form the spa, its a basic one in the basement.
The restaurant are very nice. Rustical and with view to the (spa) garden.
