Ideal location near main railway station and close to river, transport links. Rooms were very clean but basic. Shower was very good. Location is typical of that found near most European railway main stations so expect fast food joints etc but I liked it and was good value for a clean comfortable overnight business trip. Irish pub down the street...

A fairly nice hotel. The receptionist is a friendly guy. We stayed at Pension Alpha for three nights and I'm not disappointed with my stay. The location is just fantastic,very near to the railway station. Plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. The hotel could do with a bit more facilities, but that is okay. I do recommend this hotel.

fast & easy. Prompt & professional. No funny business and well informed. Lack of trust from stay-in guests (i.e. need deposit to borrow hair dryer). If reserve a place, make sure call the hotel before hand to ask for room in the new side instead from the old building. No need breakfast if you want something new everyday. You can...

This hotel is located near the Main station, and is within walking distance to the different attractions within Frankfurt. The room we got was quite small, and only contains a TV, 2 beds, and a shower. As we did not really intend to stay long in this hotel, this was OK. They do serve breakfast, but you have to pay...

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.

The receptionists were not friendly unfortunately, but they were professional and efficient. My room was up on the third floor. (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...

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...
