8/10 Very Good

Someone tried to break into my room when I was sleeping, only for a Chinese man to twart him away, the police did respond quickly so thank you!

2/10 Poor

It had no AC, outside was a lot of noise and the hallways smelled like old carpets that had been never cleaned

Problem after problem
We arrived at the hotel at around 10:30pm but there was a long line for check in. We didn’t actually get our room key until nearly midnight. We were travelling with 2 young children who were already exhausted so this was a very long wait. When we got to the room, there wasn’t enough sheets for the beds or pillow or duvet covers. The curtains didn’t cover the window so we had no privacy and we’re woken up at dawn as we had no way to block out the sunrise. When my husband went down to the desk to ask for more bedding and to query the lack of curtains there was already a separate queue for complaints. He was told there was no more bedding but it might arrive in the middle of the night so he could check back then. He was given no advice about the curtains. We all had a terrible night sleep and I will absolutely avoid using this hotel again. They have not tried to resolve anything or contact us. Very disappointing.

Really bad experience, we where given a room that was already occupied, the person in charge didn’t know what to do, we had to wait for two hours to get our room, we ended up getting the room after 2 am. I expect a full refund.

2/10 Poor

This is the armpit of Frankfurt. Worst hotel I’ve ever stayed at, even in third world countries. I had to cry and wait 45 minutes to get them to honor my booking. Then they overcharged me. This is a travesty of a place.

4/10 Fair

Overpriced and poor
First two rooms, I opened the door to find that they were occupied! The guy on reception just stated ‘this is why I hate this job’. Common areas where never cleaned during my stay the same dirty sock was there throughout! Area has plenty of eating options and is handy for Messe but next time I will book the premier inn.

4/10 Fair

Very noisy, between street noises (tram, train, sirens) and rowdy youths who were partying and shouting just outside the property late at night. 2 nights out of 3 when I stayed. Not a good choice when you need a decent night sleep.
