OK hotel

Posted Jul 2, 2014
Pros: close to train station, supermarket.
Cons: washroom
Location: close to train station, supermarket.
It's an OK hotel. clean but small, especially the washroom, you can't turn in the shower room if you're not confident about your own size. And if you turn, most likely you may touch the handle of faucet --- be prepare for the hot or cold "willcome". It's just beside a train station so it's loud when train passing by, but convenient if you going to downtown

Benefit of hotel is nearly to s-bahn station.

Posted Feb 14, 2014
Pros: To be nearly to train station and Messe.
Cons: Especially,hot water service for bathroom.
Location: To be nearly to train station and Messe.
The hotel is really nearly to s-bahn train station and also who exhibitor for Messe - Frankfurt,I advice them.Because it is also nearly to Messe Frankfurt.On the other hand if any problem on train station,you can also go to your hotel by running.It is approximately 15 minutes from Messe.Unfortunetely,there is no hot water after midnight and also reception works until 11 p.m. The rooms also doesn't include minibar.Wireless service not so good.Sometimes,for example,when the other guests come to hotel,the internet service becomes too slowly.

Good for what I needed

Posted Oct 16, 2013 on Hotels.com
The Arena is a clean, seemingly newly renovated hotel very near the convention center. It was easy to get everywhere from here. The staff was nice, and it served its purpose (I was in town for the book fair). If you are going to just sleep in the room and be out all day, maybe running back to change before the evening, then this is fine with good food options nearby; Leipziger Strasse had places to eat, a grocery, etc. The down sides is that room I was in was VERY small (and I live in Manhattan, so I know small). I literally had clothes hanging everywhere for a week's stay. It was clean -- yes -- but a single is truly a single; I could not take more than two or three steps -- if that -- without running into a wall, and had a single bed. Also, I was on the back side of the hotel, but I can imagine that the front side would be noisy with the trains. Also, they did not replace dirty drinking glasses each day, which after having a bit of red wine the night before was gross, and I think I used the same towel every day. I do that anyway, but it was not my choice, it was just how it was. In short, if you are not going to use the room for anything but crashing at the end of a long day, maybe watching a bit of TV (Netflix or other on your computer if you don't speak German, of course, b/c all TV is dubbed) then fine. Otherwise, if you want to have a room you look forward to returning to at night, with business-friendly amenities, look elsewhere.

Nice hotel but far from center

Posted Dec 21, 2011 on Hotels.com
Hotel was nice, clean and quiet. Staff was very nice and accomodating. Price was good. Only drawback, a bit far from city center and our room was facing the train station, which can be a bit loud when train passes. Ask for a room not facing train station.

Brand new Bargain

Posted Aug 25, 2011
Great little place, completely renovated, finishes are professional. For the money this is a place to return to. As a place to land after a long transatlantic flight, with a GPS it's easy to find, it has what you expect in a typically european compact package for a lot more money elsewhere. It's very close to the train station. The trains are electric in the country, they are not a problem, particularly if you get a room on the backside of the building. I was well satisfied with the comfort, the good night's sleep and the breakfast in the morning. Friendly staff, always ready to help. I liked it and will return on my flight out.
