      Historical Traveler Reviews National Hotel - Frankfurt

      Very spacious room, good location

      from

      This hotel was perfect for a quick 2 day break in Frankfurt. Great location, opposite the train station (where the bus dropped us), near to all amenities and within walking distance from the shopping streets. The red-light district is not too far away but fortunately it can be easily avoided. The room was very clean and there was great space (especially as it was for 3 of us!). The morning breakfast really set us up for the day. We enjoyed our stay and found the staff to be very friendly. We would recommend this hotel to friends and colleagues.

      Solid, but far from amazing

      from

      The hotel staff are friendly, but not always very helpful (notably the concierge), the hotel is undergoing extensive renovations at the moment, and the location, which everyone talks about, isn't bad, but is far from fantastic. On the plus side, the rooms were nice and clean, the breakfast was good, and the free internet was a very nice treat. On a budget, the hotel is a good call, but travelers who are not as price constrained can get better value elsewhere.

      Very good value

      from

      I stayed for 3 nights at the National and I would highly recommend it. The hotel is an old style and their was some renovations being done during the stay. From my experience, the rooms are quite large by German standards. Very nice bathroon as well. Very quiet (except for the construction during the day) and the staff is very helpful. About a one minute walk to the train station. Free mini-bar is a nice plus too. A bargain for $90 to $120

      Big room!! great location!

      from

      The goods:

      1. 5 mins walking distance from Frankfurt HBF

      2. I live in 1st floor, it is a big room,

      3. clean

      4. good breakfast with hams, sausages, fruits,...

      5. Great service and friendly staff: I reached Frankfurt early in the morning, the room wasn't ready yet. The staff asked me and my wife to enjoy the complimentary breakfast while waiting for our room. And yes, English speaking staff.

      The bad:

      1. winter is low season, the hotel was having some renovation; kinda noisy when activities were going on

      2. the heater wasn't hot enough, and is at the bathroom. It took quite a while to warm up the whole room;

      in general, it's a good mid-range hotel.

      Brilliant!

      from

      Stayed at the National Hotel for three nights back in May 2005. It has been recently renovated and has one of the best locations in town - very central. All the attractions worth seeing in Frankfurt are within walking distance from this hotel. I particularly enjoyed my strolls along the river which are especially nice in the warmer months when masses of people just gather for drinks and barbeques around the banks. The hotel staff where very polite and helpful. My room (a single) was spotless clean and had the most enormous bathroom I have seen in a hotel. All the basic amenities were provided for in the room including wireless internet access for which you can buy credit at reception. Breakfast was simple yet with an adequate and interesting selection (look out for all their delicious breads). Reception was kind enough to store my luggage between the time I checked out and my flight time which was later in the afternoon. Definitely a place to go again when I return to Frankfurt - FANTASTIC value for money.

      Great Location

      from

      We were in Frankfurt for 4 days and had a great time. The National hotel is acroos the road from the main train station in among a few hotels. The staff in the hotel were very helpful with directions and suggestions.The room was clean, if a little small and the FREE mini bar was a nice touch.

      No. 11 and 12 tram stops are just around the corner of the Irish bar( 2 minute walk) and these take 5 minutes to the city centre or the underground is outside the Irish bar and will take you all over the city. All in all a lovely hotel and area and we would have no hesitation in going back.

      Brillant value near the Hauptbahnhof!

      from

      This is a very pleasant and reliable hotel, providing excellent service and superb value for money in an extremely convenient (albeit slightly seedy) location near the Hauptbahnhof. We stayed here overnight last week & paid just 30 for the privelidge. The room was a little small but spotlessly clean & included a minibar with complimentary drinks (beer, soft drink, mineral water).

      A further "welcome drink" was supplied in the congenial little piano bar downstairs, which we enjoyed with a couple of our fellow guests.

      Finally, the breakfast was almost extravagant, even by german standards.

      Good value

      from

      We stopped in early July for 3 nights at a very cheap price of 30 a night with breakfast.

      The staff were very helpfull & there is free parking at the rear of the hotel. The location is good next to the railway station & about 10 mins walk into the shopping areas.

      I got the impression the hotel had seen better years & was due some money spending on it. But it was very clean.

      Breakfast was good but you did have to ask the staff to top up items that had run out.

      The only real down side was no air condtioning, it was unuasully hot when we stayed. The first night was were on the front of the hotel & due to traffic noise we could not leave the windows open, We requested a move to the rear of the hotel which was much better.

      All in all if you can get a good discount its a good hotel.

      Convenient, spotless old hotel

      from

      We had a one-night layover in Frankfurt and stayed at the National. The room was spotless with a comfortable bed. The crystal chandeliers were a nice touch. The location was perfect - across the street from the train station and a nice walk to the old town. Breakfast was delicious and the staff was courteous and helpful.

      Still lovely after many visits.

      from

      I have stayed at The National many times over the past 20+ years, & still find it charming. It has always been SPOTLESSLY clean, & has the feel of an old 20's property. Nice morning breakfast & it is directly across the street from the main Frankfurt Rail Station. Trains run every 10-15 minutes to the airport & the ride takes 10-15 minutes, so it is much more enjoyable to stay there the night before a flight, than at the charmless airport properties. The only downside is that the area immediately around the hotel, for 1-2 blocks, is now filled with porn movie houses & less than desirable bars, but a few "local spots" I've patronized for 20 years remain. Don't let the surrounding businesses put you off, since it's a non-issue really. There are far, far more expensive hotels located directly adjacent to The National & in the same vicinity, so it's not like the National is off by itself. Only a few blocks walk to lots of nice places & well worth the price ------- though I've never paid more than $60-75 USD for a double.

      Our big day in Frankfurt began with a pretty big breakfast at the hotel, complete with everything I think you could ever need to fuel your day. It was good to get a big meal in as this was our only full day in Frankfurt so knew it could be a long one. After we were done we made our way across the road to the station to where we knew the tourist bus …

      Day 6 dawns, and it's time to get out of Amsterdam. It's sad because I'm starting to get my bearings here, and I feel that schlaucheijkn is really starting to take off as a word. But it's sort've exciting; in a couple of hours I'll be in a completely new country. That doesn't happen every day at home. For the first time ever I feel like a bit of a …

We also played a game with the presents, each of us taking turns opening a present and guessing who it was for. I gave Simon's family the swiss chocolate I bought for them in Cologne, and I got a couple really cool presents, including a calendar and a book with all of the beautiful places in Germany so I can remember what I saw, and also see what I hopefully will get to go and ...

      We made it to Frankfurt! Happy New Year to everyone as well!! The flight was a little crazy. Fully booked to the point where once they loaded the luggage they had to recalibrate everything as the load was too heavy! Then we hit some crazy turbulence! Roller coaster feeling in my tummy! I was getting a bit nervous as things were rattling everywhere and a cart even fell over! Definitely glad to be on solid ground. So ...
