      Wonderful hotel with nice and comfortable rooms. The price was superb - it was almost for free. The staff is pleasant and very helpful.

      You can have breakfast 'till 10am. Arriving at 9am. on monday, almost everything was gone. This is not acceptable when you charge 15 euro's per person.

      Very good hotel, and if you book ahead it is cheap. Only thing is it is a little far from the city center. You can take u6/7, it takes you to the center for 4 stops.

      Nice staff and a comfortable room. We had a lovely time.

      The breakfast was a bit expensive, considering its variety. Sauna was not completely heated up.

      Pleasant staff! Very comfortable room. Excellent location - a short walk from places to eat and U-Bahn, and near Botanical Garden.

      Would have liked kettle in room , which I understood was meant to be standard. Did get hot water from downstairs but this was down to kindness of staff - and they were too busy to ask in morning when lots of people checking in and out!

      The room we stayed in at the attic was modern, clean and cosy.

      Very noisy roadworks just in front of the Hotel started the evening of our stay, for all night long and continuosly during the day. This is of course not the Hotel's fault but we think they could have notified the customers as they were aware upfront.

      I was supprised to find out that the apparently 4 star (****) hotel only had a receptionist at 18:00 and that there were no other staff or services ie. No bar and no restaurant available....I´ve stayed in a range of hotels, both private and proffesionally and this hotel is simply a Bed & Breakfast. Please update ratings and remove the 4 stars !

      I've booked room for 2 persons, and they gave me room with 2 separate beds :-( I've asked for one double size bed, and they told me they do not have such.

      Stayed one night. Staff was helpful. Room was very clean. Had a nice view of the city. Within a 10-minute walking distance to the Bockenheimer Warte U4 metro station.

      Have nothing to complain about.

      Very well placed hotel, a 10-minute walk to the Festhalle, where we went to see two concerts. We wanted a smoking room, got a non-smoking one, but were quickly moved.Excellent reception staff, gave us all the details we needed and were very helpful.

      The second room we got had a stain on one of the armchairs, but the rest was impeccably clean. As I was told, since it was at the corner of the building, some sort of firewall was stopping the internet connection. It did work perfectly well in the hall, though.

      We can recommend this hotel, overall positive experience. The room was very spacious with comfortable beds and couch. Small mini bar and comfortable sofa, prices reasonable. We booked a double room without breakfast for €44, offering great value for money. Nice view over the skyline of Frankfurt. Tea and coffee facilities in the room, which was clean. The decor though from the 80's was of a maritime theme and very pleasant. There is a bakery 2 blocks away where you can get breakfast for €5, from the hotel entrance keep walk straight across the street, taking the road to the left, continue walking straight ahead. Will see bakery to the right. Free parking in front on the street and at the back of the hotel (6 spaces). Zoo which is 5km away is really worth a visit, only €8 to enter plus has a mexican restaurant inside with tables and umbrellas.

      Take a stock count on arrival from the mini bar - the packet of crisps were missing from the inventory list. Waited 20 minutes to check out. Seems to be a lack of staff at reception, as the male receptionist was in the dining room either having breakfast or conducting a meeting with the dining staff. The electronic room card stopped working at 11am even though check-out was only at 12. Had to request a new card to access the room. Breakfast is €12.

      Absolutely nothing whatsoever.

      The room was filhy, there was mold of the grout of the bathroom tiles, there were orange and brown stains all over the shower curtain, the bed wasn't made and there taps were full of limescale and rust. I have pictures that I can provide and i'm disgusted that reception still insisted on charging me for the room!! In addition the restaraunt and bar were permanantly closed! The staff solution was appauling and my stay totalled over 200 Euro as everytime I wanted food, (lunch or dinner) I had to pay for a taxi! The worst Best Western i've ever stayed at!
