I traveled to Frankfurt in June and stayed at Pension Alpha for 2 nights. The location is great since it is located near the main train/subway station. You can take the train from the International airport and get there in less than 30 minutes. In addition to that there are some coaches near the main train station you could take...

Stayed July 2012. The room was clean, beds were comfortable and bathroom facilities quite good. Staff were either rude or uncaring. Breakfast was included, and though very basic, was reasonable. We had a lot of street noise - too much to open a window at night and no air-conditioning or fans - and noisy people in the next room -...

The service at the hotel was okay. When we first checked in the man at the desk was less than friendly, however later in the day we were greeted by someone much more personable. The price was great, and included with that was free internet (that actually worked well), and a free buffet which we missed cause we slept in....

Positive: Clean, spacious and well equipped room (room for 4 people) Breakfast included in price Great location few minutes walk from train station Negative: If you leave windows open, noise from outside from the street wakes you up, and if you close the windows it's very stuffy and hot Breakfast area is a bit cramped, to the point it's nearly...

We stayed one night, checking in at 3 am after a long drive and just needing to crash. The room was on the 5th floor. Not a huge room but enough for what we needed. Most of the outlets didnt work in the room. The furnishings, linens and towels need updating but not bad. Despite the area, it was quiet....

Pension Alpha is one of the cheapest good options in Frankfurt. location is OK, not far from the main station and the subway. There are two buildings with rooms. I had a siingle room that felt like a small appartment under the roof. It's central, clean and comfortable, in other words, good value.

Neat and clean hotel located in the immediate vicinity of the railway station, which is very convenient for travelers. The hotel is simple, but the price / quality ratio is very good. The room is equipped with everything necessary. Shower and toilet are in the room. Clean linen and towels were provided. Comfortable bed. There is a lift in the...

It was the cheapest option in Frankfurt city center at time of booking so I did not expect much of the hotel. Nevertheless I was quite satisfied. For me it was a good value accommodation. Located close to the main railway station it provided easy access for the airport and for city center and its main sites. Hotel was clean....

Stayed for one night after arriving in Frankfurt. Pros: Good location close to train station. Single room at attic level was fine. Very clean. Internet worked. Breakfast was nice. Cons: Staff not very friendly. Had to walk three long flights of stairs with luggage. No help from staff so dragged my bags up. But location is good so people keep...
