The only good thing is close to the main train station. The hotel had 1 operating small lift, terrible beds, poor quality linens, and breakfast wasn’t great. Would not recommend ever!

Very nice, but few rooms with AC.

Cons: WIFI was pretty weak.
It was a great hotel, very convenient, and clean. Only problem was that we arrived on a very hot day - 30 degrees celcius - and our room had no air conditioning. On any other day the room would have been fine. To switch to a room with AC would have cost an additional 50 Euros - but they didn't have one big enough for our family of 4.

Central and colourful Frankfurt district

Recommended by Lonely Planet and I was not disappointed. I am a senior. Stayed a number of times for a few days each time passing through on a rail tour of Germany over July ,August , September 2007 and felt at home there. No superfluous glitz about this place except the name. Super buffet breakfast ,complimentary coffee, tea,mineral water and cakes most of the day in lounge and computer room (free internet on 5 units all day). Would you believe it - a free bar fridge refilled each day. Staff busy but friendly and helpful. Adjacent central station great for take-aways and your ubiiquitous Irish Bar is a short staggering distance from hotel. Local red light district nearby but never felt threatened.\nBudget tariffs during non business periods were good after which prices soar all over Frankfurt I am advised. All my bookings were through the net and had no hassles.\nHappy travels - Germany was just great!\n

Excelsior excels

Excellent value with free minibar, free extensive and varied breakfast served 6 AM until 11 AM, free business center with fast modern computers, free coffee and snacks all afternoon, free newspapers, and free ironing service daily. Excelsior is my home away from home in Frankfurt, accross the street from the main train station so saves on taxis too. Great helpful staff, always upgrade me to a double if they have one available.

Great location next to rail station

Hotel is across the main Frankfurt train station. Free minibar and breakfast buffet makes this place a great home base for train travel throughout Germany. Employees were very friendly and helpful.
