    I paid 69€ for my night there. Expensive, but that's what the prices are like there. Free internet (good speed). If you neighbour chats on the phone you'll be able to write a full report - no worries! Room was clean and warm (-7c) outside. 10 min. Walk from the Zeil street. Not too much street noise though. Staff is friendly and helpful. Internet was down and the lady reset the modem straight after my call. Back to youtube! Breakfast was standard, cereals fresh fruit etc. for 8€. No bedbugs in my room. Would I go again if I had to? Yepp.

    The Price, but well, I guess big cities have to be expensive. If you don't want to turn blind, don't look at the prices of simple hostels in that area! There was no safe in the room.

    Peaceful, tidy, reasonably priced

    The lighting was so dim that it was difficult to read in the room. The TV set was ancient and the remote didn't work properly.

    The location is great for walking to any of the Northend landmarks. I'm a solo, female traveler and the hotel's location made me feel safe. It's a quiet neighborhood, yet has great options for shopping and dining. There's a perfect coffee/bar just a block away, called 60,318 Kaffeebar. They make the best coffee in this part of town, offer homemade pastries and are also right across the weekend market where you can try local food and beer/wine. This coffee/bar was the reason why I opted out of getting hotel's breakfast. The hotel room was clean and staff was very friendly and kind. I would stay there again and recommend to all my friends.

    Street noise from traffic was a bit annoying, since my window opened up toward the busy street. But that's only because I like to have windows open at night. If you have yours closed, you'll get a great night's sleep.

    Very large room for the price -- I reserved a single for 32 EUR / night& got a double with both a large desk and a small table w/ two chairs -- by far the largest inexpensive hotel room I've had in Frankfurt (rm 207). Pleasant and responsive service (although limited: there is no-one to help carry bags & the front desk has limited hours) service. Has an elevator. There is no airconditioning, but rooms have fans & small refrigerators which actually get *cold*. Location is extremely convenient, on a quiet street in a pleasant residential neighborhood but in walking distance from Bergerstrasse & the east end of Zeil. Across the street is a pizzeria (Napolimania) which serves the best pizza I've had outside Naples -- 100 times better than the average, even good-average, Frankfurt Italian place.

    It was, unusually, very hot during my stay, so I would have welcomed airconditioning. Also, though it is convenient that there is a drinks cooler next to the front desk from which one can purchase soda, beer, bottled water, etc., the prices are outrageously inflated -- use this only in case of emergency! The front desk staff speak German and English fairly well, but not fluently. They are helpful, though, and will do their best to figure out requests (e.g. the first morning the maid forgot to leave a bathmat in my room, and no-one could figure out how to say "bathmat," but lo and behold, one did appear the next & following days). In general I had the sense that if anything was a problem (e.g. not clean, missing, etc.) it would be addressed. The breakfast is not worth it unless it's included in your room rate -- it's neither terrible nor very good, just generic, with a decent choice of the usual items -- but not in any circumstances worth 8 EUR.

    Location was excellent for city and transport. Reasonable breakfast.

    Room was looking a bit tired and the basin plug was missing in 1 of the 2 rooms we booked. Ran out of English Breakfast tea in the breakfast room.

    it´s location near the city center and underground stations is great.

    front desk staff is very rude and non-co-operative. I paid all my dues through net in advance, even then she ( front desk person) harassed me a lot during checkout.
