Liked: Helpful staff, clean rooms, almost in the center of city just 2 minutes walk from main railway station, easy to go anywhere in Frankfurt and just beside the food street where you can eat whatever you want.

Disliked: Sometime, drug addicted people wander around the hotel. They do not disturb you but feels bad when going out or coming in the hotel.

Liked: The hotel stand close to main station. You can reach your destenation without any stress. They have good facility in the room e.g. safety box, tv, frege and the price was good.

Disliked: We didn't like the neighborhood. It was not safe. There are a lot of beggers, drag sellers etc. very near to the hotel. The neighborhood was very noisy. it was warm inside but because of the noise, we couldn't open the windows during the night.

07 September 2012 Paul would recommend this property

Liked: Location was good literally in between the station and a stones throw away from the river bank which has plenty of events through the summer . The rooms were clean tidy and spacious towels provided and a fridge and tv albeit their is only one news channel in English ... But hey ho your not there to watch the tv ... Right ! .

Disliked: The only downside to this place was the drug use outside the front of the building it's very blaintant but we saw frequent visits by the police and the users tend to leave you alone and don't bother you. At the end of the street and across from the hotel are various sex shops and cabaret shows so if this offends you then the Elbe isn't for you.

Liked: Little.

Disliked: The hotel was in an extremely unsafe area, with people taking illegal drugs on the doorstep day and night with no one (police or hotel staff) doing anything about it. Our room had no window and the cleanliness was not up to standard.

Liked: The service corresponded more or less to the prise.

Disliked: I think that the details of the location should be clarified from the beginning, as it was a bad surprise to see homeless people taking drugs right near the hotel as it is located on Red Light street. I did not feel safe going out from the hotel in the evening.

Liked: Very close to the train station so convenient for backpackers. Room was a good size and clean.

Disliked: Large amounts of hard drug taking going on right outside, and in the street directly infront of our first floor window. Didn't really want to open the curtains! Stayed on a Saturday night, this was probably the worst one - where drug dealers / takers were injecting themselves all along the street as we walked back to the hotel. Thankfully there were no problems but I would say this is deffinately not a place for lone travellers, especially female.

Liked: The hotel is clean.

Disliked: Location: the hotel is in front of casino (noisy) and red light street and our room was in front of and I was not feeling secure to leave my car (but at the end I found it there). Reception: the guy at the reception was not speaking a good English (although the woman at the reception was) but he was gentle. Room: The tap of the sink was not well connected.

Liked: Good price and located near to central station

Disliked: we booked a double room with ensuite but got two single beds. also, it stank like ciggarette smoke. it was in the red light district and had prositutes literally standing outside the front door, very loud music in the middle of the night, drug addicts in the street opposite the hotel and no fridge in the room.

Liked: The room and bathroom were super clean. The window all the way to let some air through the room during the hot summer nightsIt was close to the central station from the airport or if you're headed out to another city by train. Lots of restaurants around the area. Good value if you're looking for a cheap place to stay.

Disliked: Lots of prostitute and drugs on the street. However, if you don't bother them, they'll just mind their own business. I would not recommend it to single female travelers to be wandering in that area at night.

Liked: Great all night food nearby, dodgy neighborhood but still safe and lots of Internet shops. Hotel Internet is tedious and overpriced. Clean room with good bed but our bathoom window opened directly onto a fire escape which felt a little insecure. Yes, it is the red light district, but the rooms are quiet.

Disliked: Overpriced breakfast. Overpriced Internet.
