Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel InterContinental Frankfurt
Enjoyed our stay
We spent a long weekend in Frankfurt in July 2004. We tried the IC and booked a standard room at a very reasonable rate including full breakfast. We checked in before noon without any problem. The concierge guided us to our high floor room with a wonderful view overlooking the Main. Size and decor of the room made us feel comfortable. Turndownservice in the evening changed everything after we took a nap in the afternoon. The Breakfast was great including japanese and indian food. It's a nice ten minute walk along the river to the old town.
At least ok
Surprised by many of the negative comments. Stayed there quite often and usually if you are 2 or 3 weeks ahead you can book for roughly 145 EUR.
Generally good service
Just OK for Price
My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in June 2004. Although the room, food and staff were all pleasant, it did not overwhelm us for the price.
Not worth high price
I agree with the previous reviews who gave this hotel a thumbs down. My room barely had enough space to house the two twin beds, pushed side-by-side. Furnishings, though adequate, looks in need of freshening up. Bathroom was very small and smelled stuffy or moldy. This room feels more like a 2 star hotel than what IC typically is. Unless you get a real good deal, there are much better places elsewhere.
Also, the maid was especially stingy on the amenities. The shampoos, conditioners, etc. didn't get replenished (I was there 3 nights). I would think that at >200 euros a night, supplying those items should be basic.
The proximately to the main train station is a plus (<10 min walk with luggage). But, on the downside, to walk to the more attractive part of Frankfurt, such as Romerburg, takes at least 15 min.
Excellent Hotel if You Stay in Main Tower
We stayed here in March 2003.
Don't let the bad reviews deter you from staying here if the rates are good:
The hotel has two towers, the Main (or main) on the south side of the street facing the river and the City Wing which is on the north side of the street. The City Wing has small, older rooms and was a different brand hotel until IC took it over.
The hotel is a 5 minute walk east of the train station
and two blocks from the tram line tht goes to the station and the main shopping area, the Zeil. You cannot miss the hotel, it is one of the tallest buildings that is right along the river.
The best rooms are on the upper floors of the south side of Main wing and have views of the river. We booked 9 months in advance on the IC website and had a deluxe double with a queen bed for ~200 Euro including breakfast. This was a weekend rate for Thursday and Friday nights. The room did tend to be a little small with all the furniture ( queen bed, TV credenza, table, two chairs, etc.) but was very luxurious. There was minibar, satellite/cable TV, large bath and eleaborate brealfast buffet.
A major convention with ~75,000 attendees was going on out at the Messe when we were there so the going rate at the time of our stay was over 300 Euro for a cheap room across the street. They were very puzzled when we checked in about our room rate but had to honor it.
More like a glorified Holiday Inn
I had the mispleasure of staying at the IC Frankfurt for a week on business recently. I got a room in the City Wing, on the 12th floor.
The room itself was a reasonable size, but lacked any of the grandeur which I've seen in other IC's. In fact this room looked suspiciously like a Holiday Inn room... Decor was getting a bit worn, and the room was swelteringly hot.
Another gripe is the lack of English language TV stations - and indeed the poor quality of TV channels full stop.
Whilst I'm at it, the iron facilities were substandard - one of those integrated ironing board trouser press things, which is not much good for those of us who like to watch TV whilst ironing.
For those expecting IC comfort, I'd suggest staying away from the IC Frankfurt. It's charging IC prices for HI rooms - sadly something it can get away with in the current Frankfurt hotel market.
I stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel in Frankfurt from 7 - 9 May. I was less than satisfied to say the least. First, I am a new Ambassador Club member which is the equivalent of being Platinum level at other competitor hotels. Upon my arrival, I was greeted and treated like any ordinary traveller. In addition, I was led to believe that I would be upgraded to the Concierge level and received a standard room with no Concierge level priviledges. My overall experience there was less than average. I will probably not stay there again. My next hotel of choice will either be the Marriott Messe or the Sheraton Arrabella.
Superb views, superb breakfast
We stayed at the Club IC floor and boy what a view! You could see skyscrapers and on the horizon there were mountains! Loved it. Check-in service was fluently done in english and the breakfast buffet was incredible! The location is good too, cause the bridge dividing the town is very near and you have easy access to both the old-town and the downtown with big glass buildings.. The hotel lobby, while great, is not as nice as in many other Intercontinentals. The Club IC lounge is very comfortable, even though it seemed empty (we were there on a weekend).
Was very happy with the visit and this is THE place to stay in Frankfurt.
Beautiful Hotel, a bit hard to find on foot initially - the map on their website is very high-level and not as good when you're walking there. The rooms are great, the interior decor top notch and the breakfast buffet was simply amazing they had everything anyone could ever want to eat. Fabulous view of the river from the rooms too. Probably one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in.
We fell victim to the Intercontinental hotels website. Their Frankfurt hotel is an ailing, overpriced and noisy enterprise in urgent need of updating after catering for decades to millions of convention visitors. The rooms are run down and tiny, the street noise can be bad. A place to avoid. A much better deal was the Meridien Park Hotel we tried for the rest of our stay.

... Shopping area and first thing we saw was a Starbucks. So for a bit we're chillin' in a cafe. Last time I was in Deutschland was 2005. It's different to be out of the office AND out of familiar surroundings and culture. I can't say I hate it. Feels ...
I had promised to visit Steffie's Uncle Detlef up near Darmstadt in summer, but I didn't get around to it so with a free day on Monday, I decided to invite myself over and use it as a good excuse to see the countryside.
I wanted to make the most out of the day, so I left home at 8:45 and caught the 9:21 S-Bahn from Heidelberg to Bensheim. I could have ridden my bike ...
... kind've appreciate the bad pun that has made its name. As there was still plenty of daylight left in the day, we decided to head into the centre of town and go up the Main Tower, a 200 metre skyscraper offering views of the city up on its rooftop. We headed on up and got some pretty spectacular views of the city and its surrounds. Once we were finished there, I decided that I'd got my bearings pretty well for this town, and very quickly got us lost. While we ...
... we didn’t have to mess around with taxis etc. It was good to see him! The Croatian countryside was very beautiful, with rolling hills and quaint little farming villages. It definitely felt as if I’d gone back to a time when things were much more simple, and the pace of human life much more relaxed. It was beautiful. I enjoyed seeing the different types of 'corn cribs’ (storage cases for corn) in peoples’ ...
... a busy, fun filled few days if arrival was anything to go by. For the festival we had decided to stay with TopDeck tours on a camping site about 30 minutes from the centre of town. Using the directions given to us we trudged off to the Metro, boarded the train and about 15 minutes later exited the station. From here we could see signs that led travellers to the huge campsite that every tour group tends to use. There were signs for PP Travel, ...
