A truly 'terrible' accommodation. A few features of this rip-off hotel: Room: noisy, smelly, dirty, and hot with no AC; Bathroom: dirty and old; Mattress: very thin and uncomfortable, Internet speed: slow, Staff behaviour: rude, Price: high There was no security for the large back windows in the room opening to a shabby courtyard! Beware, this hotel is really scary!!!

Unfriendly staff. Clean hotel, but last time this hotel was renovated was 30 years ago. Location is central (2 minutes walk from central station), but area is dirty and smelly. I was there during expo week, so price was extremely high for such low quality stay, but all hotels do the same. Breakfast has no huge choice, but ok.

Thank Emaximo

(A lift would have been nice as I'd been walking around the city a lot already) room was well laid out with plenty space for one. Would have been a squeeze for two. I didn't try the food so cannot...

Don't expect comfort,just a nice matras to sleep on.Perfect for short city trip. Room is not decorated but you are in Frankfurt to explore the city after all. Toilet and bathroom were clean. The hotel has a good location,walking distance from the attractions.

I stayed this place for one night booked via internet 43€ including breakfast. The location was perfect 100 meter from the main train station. The guy at the desk was friendly and early checking request was available at 09:00 liked, +18hrs travel from Phuket was worthy. Unfortunately no free water available at room's freezer, the freezer was empty but have... More

I stayed here for €32 for a night because i had an early flight out of the airport.Had to leave the key at the front, several times when arriving, there was no one at the front desk so keys could have easily been taken by a witty thief (room numbers printed on each key!). There was no bell to alert... More

Location excellent for travellers on transit and need to be near the Frankfurt Main HBF.Room is clean and quiet.Non-airconditioned.Tap water smells a bit funny. The man at the counter(night shift) was not too friendly on our first visit but he was pleasant the second time we checked in. Surrounding area is quite filthy with many homeless people but it's safe... More

The room didn't even have a telephone to call the reception. The front desk is manned by 2 managers - one for each: day & night shifts. The in room WiFi connection is good and upon checking in, I was given separate passwords per device. Hotel is a 7 min walk from the main railway station - Frankfurt am Main... More

Really handy location, just five minutes walk from the railway station. Rooms are functional and clean(ish) although our shower head had to be balanced to sit in the right position. I actually enjoyed this battle of wills. However, staff at reception desk were unfriendly and unhelpful. I asked for the wifi code/password and was told they would give it to... More
