Most of the guests staying in this hotel are probably visitors to the U.S. consulate, which is only 5-10 minute walking distance away. For this purpose, the hotel is REALLY IDEAL. Not only is it close by, but you can also buy the obligatory "DHL Express Brief" at the front desk, which applicants for visa must bring to the consulate, so that their passport can be sent back to them. For hungry guests that arrive late, there is a McDonald's in the adjacent building and if you like beer gardens (particularly now in the summer) don't miss to go to the nearby "Friedberger Warte" (the medieval tower you can see from the hotel, which is only about 150 meters away), which harbors a nice beer garden and excellent German food. There is a tram stopping immediately before the hotel, which goes to the main train station and city center and a cab from the central Roemerplatz to the hotel costs only about 10 Euro. Thus, even if you do not have to go to the U.S. consulate, this might still be a great place to stay. The rooms are clean and you can have breakfast in house. Breakfast is decent but I assume you can probably eat better in the city. The hotel staff is super friendly and what I like is that you can buy drinks (beer, wine, water, coffee) at the front desk. Rooms don't have air conditioning but a big fan, which was enough for me. Overall, I loved this hotel and would stay there again if I have to go to Frankfurt.
Excellent staff at the hotel, nice room and close to nearby shopping & restaurants. If you are a person who enjoys walking, Romer and many other attractions are not that far away. Hotel is listed as a two star hotel but I would consider it more of a three star. It is easily accessed by train from the train station or airport.
Early checkout is a nice feature since I needed to leave at 6AM to catch an early flight, was told by receptionist to just leave the key in your room and close the door and no need to see anyone in the lobby since the lobby is open only from 7AM till 11PM.
No complaints, room had free and speedy internet, everything was spotlessly clean, room is modern.
Receptionist spoke good English which was good since I don't speak German.
Just a warning for those with a vehicle. Parking rate at hotel is reasonable and likely your only choice. There is very limited parking in that neighborhood since the parking is restricted to residents with permits only and there is a very limited and very inconvenient window where you can shortly park your car free of charge. Given that the hotel is next door to the police station, you probably don't want to risk parking outside of the free permitted hours to non-residents with all the police cars parked around the hotel.
