Nice hotel for a business stay
Posted Feb 9, 2016
Although the hotel looks old from the outside, it is quite well kept up and updated on the inside. I stayed in a "studio, king bed" room - more like a queen by US standards, but had a nice living area with couch, chairs, coffee table and work desk. Everything was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit small, but perfectly acceptable, with electronically controlled shower, the usual toiletries, and even a wash cloth (unusual for many German hotels...). The hotel restaurant had a reasonable dinner menu, and a decent wine list. The breakfast buffet was outstanding, including eggs to order, and the usual American and German fare. It is not downtown - but is right around the corner from the train station, with bus and tram stops, so getting around is very easy. It's also literally 30 minutes to FRA via the AirLiner Airport bus from the train station. The free WiFi was adequate - but don't expect to stream content or get smooth Skyping without paying an extra 5 euros per day. The only negative was a lack of power outlets at the desk. You have to unplug the coffee maker to free an outlet.
