    Me and my cousin were robbed in the morning. We were in the room and while we were sleeping, somebody sneaked in who had the keys and took the wallet. I woke up and saw the men leaving. The hotel doesn’t even have the cameras installed anywhere. The manager of the hotel was terribly unprofessional. The manager didn’t think it was necessary to call the police. Terrible place to live as well. The neighborhood is noisy and full of drunks and junkies. It is not secure to stay there!!!

    Located in a very bad area near Sex palces. The people roaring all night outside

    Good

    Easy to access and to move, being close to the Main Train Station and to all other public transport lines.. I could reach the Frankfurt Messe in a few minutes.

    Position (in the middle of the red lights district) is not recommendable at all. Bathroom was quite small for a 4 stars hotel,

    Fabulous

    Good value for money, 2 minutes walk from main railway station but neighbourhood of prostitutes and drunk people. Which didnt harm, but if you're afraid of such an environment, dont go there ;-)

    The Room was too small and specially the bathroom.I asked for change and the Hotel charged 20 Euros extra per night for that.In the new room the A/C was not working, The W/C flush system was also not working properly and inspite of complaints nobody attended. The maintainence of the rooms is not at all good.

    You should indicate the vicinity of the red light district just close to the hotel.

    Proximity to train station. Price.

    My first room, at 65 Euros a night was extremely tiny. I was moved, without charge however, to a slightly bigger room which was satisfactory. The bed was too soft however. The neighbouthood is questionable.

    Good

    When you look at a map, it has the perfect location in front of the Central Station. Functioning safe as promised. Fine mosaics in the lobby. Nice lights on the facade.

    Very disppointing breakfast in all respects. Room was tiny even if I was supposedly upgraded to a bigger one. Room design and comfort is a standard two star in Germany - ridiculous to try to make it a four star design hotel. Seedy area. I was amused to be approached by hustlers and hookers, including obviously straight male junkies desperate for a quick euro, but the red light district of Frankfurt can be shocking to some.

    Convenient to train station. Free Internet. Free breakfast. Cheap. Clean/comfortable. Breakfast was adequate, simple, appealing.

    Very small room. Street noise all night and into early morning.

    The bathroom was adequate.

    Warning!!! Do not stay at this hotel. It is in the middle of the red light district of Frankfurt. You need to close the windows to reduce but not eliminate the street noise. This presents a problem in spring/summer as the airconditioning is a token gesture. The curtains do not reduce or eliminate the light from outside the room, making sleep almost impossible. The double bed is suitable for two small adults below 5' tall. Venturing out at night is risky at best. The price of the room is no indication of the quality and location of the establishment. It is over priced and not suitable but to the very adventurous.

    Close to main station

    Surrounding area somewhat noisy at night. Hotel is average.

    The room was big

    The hotel is located in the middle of the red light district which is fine by itself, but if you get a room on the main street,you'll hear people chatting and screaming the whole night. Another big issue is the fact that the hotel internet firewall blocks all adult web sites, which is a bit hilarious given the location!

    Close to station; staff friendly;

    My booking (in writing) included parking at €13.00 per day. When I arrived there was no parking. The manager told me to go to a car park 10 minutes away. The car park near by was €27.00 per day. For this price I could have stayed at a more luxurious hotel that offered parking. The manager did not make a compromise with me and for this reason I will not recommend the hotel to anyone else.

    Nice 1st floor, central location.

    Smoke smell in rooms, poor cleaning and very noisy area of town. Better aircondition and air quality would be good, so one could close the window at night.

    I was in a tatty room with no chair, extremely small and it was 4 stars. I have seen better 2 star hotels. When I tried to speak to reception, the lady was abrupt, if not rude. The internet firewall also prevented me from booking future flights, and accessing some normal sites for work. This was extremely inconvenient, as I must go to Starbucks to access an internet to book flights and hotels.
