Hotel is right across street from main train station,with your stay the hotel offers you a free pass good for local trains and buses. Hotel room was clean and with plenty of linens in bath. Hotel has internet in lobby and in some rooms depending on where room your room is.The staff speaks English, and the hotel lobby has a bar and a restaurant. Room has TV ,safe and small refrigerator,room was small but comfortable. Rates for room were less expensive then other hotels in area.Breakfast is not included in room price,but many bakery and breakfast eatery in train station.I would stay here again.
I happened to stay here while attending a special event and it was one of the 3 suggestions where rooms were held for us. Usually, when on business trips, I really don’t mind the size of a hotel room or the amenities, as I only sleep there. But I like a good bed (and not something that breaks your back with being too soft) and a shower where the water comes out in streams rather than dripping. Oh, and I like if it serves a good coffee and has at least a fairly good choice at breakfast.
So how would I describe and “rate” the Intercity Hotel ? It is a lovely hotel, very much close to Frankfurt’s main train station (100 m across the street through the station’s northern gate), the reception personnel is nice and helpful and the room was of sufficient size with a nice bathroom.
What I really liked with this hotel was that it wasn’t noisy at all, as I would have expected due to its vicinity to Germany’s largest train station. Maybe this is as Frankfurt’s station is a terminus, so the trains are fairly slow (and less noisy) when they arrive and leave in only one direction (west). I didn’t hear any train at all, despite having my window open all night.
The bathroom was nice, with all you might need (hairdresser, soap and shampoo and more upon request), and one thing (even if it might sound strange) I also liked: the toilet paper is in front of you when you sit down, and not hidden somewhere where you need to be an acrobat to grab for it, haha.
Unique Quality: Breakfast was more than enough with plentiful choices of bread, cold cuts, cheese, fruit and English style options (ham and sausages, eggs and all). Coffee was illimited, orange and tomato juice available and several varieties of tea (bags) as well.
Room rates were 97 € per night for single occupancy, including breakfast (as of end November 2007).
Oh, and the room includes a public transport ticket for taking busses and metros in the city centre during the length of stay. And on one of the floors there must be a fitness studio, but I didn’t use it.
Intercity Hotel belongs to Steigenberger group.
Directions: It is located at the northern entrance/exit of Frankfurt's main train station - left hand side (west) of the Steigenberger Metropolitan.
To make up for our cancelled flight, Austrian Airlines had us stay at the InterCityHotel near Frankfurt Airport (not to be confused with the InterCityHotel actually in the city) the extra night we had to spend in Europe waiting for a flight back to Montreal.
When I checked out the Internet, I could not believe this was only rated as a three-star hotel. It is quite expensive (with prices starting at 125 euros per night) and the buffet, available for all 3 meals of the day, offered a wide selection.
However, a major disappointment was the fact there was no public transportation between the hotel and downtown Frankfurt. A cab ride downtown cost us over 25 euros (as did the ride back)!
Unique Quality: This is clearly a hotel oriented for business types who need to stay close to the airport (a shuttle to and from the hotel leaves every 30 minutes; the ride takes 15 minutes) and not tourists who like to be plunged in the heat of the action or, at the very least, within reasonable range of attractions.
The exterior was so ordinary, I did not even think of taking a photo. That's saying a lot for a "Kodak kid" such as myself!
I need a cheap hotel next to the central station.
(I need a small room with bath....)
can you help me?
thanks so many
Just in case you didn't know: the area around Frankfurt central station is a red light district and not the best place to stay.
While it is correct that the red light destrict is near the Hauptbahnhof, it is compared to the size of the Hauptbahnhof only a small area.
You'll be fine if you stay directly north or south of the Hauptbahnhof.
E.g. InterCity Hotel Frankfurt

Both sites will display the distance to the Hauptbahnhof for the listed hotels.
Frankfurt Tourism offers also a hotel search where you can select the area around the Hauptbahnhof.
map with hotels
select under "search for highlights" Hauptbahnhof
Just stay away from the Hotel Rossija and Pension Schneider. These 4 blocks around there are the red light district. The other locations are OK.
As a rule of thumb, the blue "congress hotels" are more expensive than the red "normal" hotels. The green ones are conference locations - no hotels.
OK, I know, but no problem for me...
