Questionable 4 star, but great location!
Got a very good rate at this hotel, but it is definitely not a 4 star hotel as advertised. The room was compact, but quiet and clean. It was supposed to be non-smoking, but you could smell cigarette smoke in the bed linens. The included breakfast was quite good. Helpful staff at the front desk, and it's directly across from the main train station.
Never give them your creditcard number
Well I staied with them early this month , it can't be called a four star hotel, I staied in a much better two star hotel than this one. the service is very bad the carpet was dirty and the only good thing they have is the breakfast buffet, and the Wi Fi connection which is not free. And the main problem I experianced with them is that, they asked for my credit card number when i checked in and even though I told them not to charg it because I want to pay by a traveler check, which they accepted on the time of chicking in. They refuse to accept my traveler check when i checked out, so i had to run to the nearest bank to cash it so i could pay them cash. I payed cash they accepted the money and closed my account and gave me a paper saying that I have a zero balance, well guess what after i went home my credit card bill came showing that they charge my card for my stay. I called them, it's not easy to get hold of the manager and the person I spoke with said that he can't find a record of me paying by cash. So I faxed him a copy of their recept and I am still trying to get my money back
Frommer's 2003 Frankfurt guide said the Savoy had a microeatery, but we did not find it. The bar area has about 8 tables, no reservations were needed. Buffet breakfast was good, but this is the only meal offered. We were disappointed with regular rooms and upgraded to 'comfort rooms' to get air conditioning--for an additional 15 euros/day. It was muggy w/o the a/c. On our last day, we went for the 0600 hour opening time for the restuarant and found almost nothing was ready--even though a tour group was booked and tables had placards for the group. There was no free shuttle as mentioned on some web sites. About half the staff were friendly. Good location--main train station across the street. Not a four star hotel, even though a plaque is on outside of the hotel to indicate that status. Otherwise comfortable.
Not sure how this rates as a four star
I went to this hotel with great expectations - probably because of the name.
It did not live up to these in any way - apart from the fact that some of the staff were very good.
Bathrooms and decor very shabby. Cigarette burns and scratches on the sink. In the bathroom the shower head would not stay in place as the holder for it was so worn. We moved rooms as the radiator would not turn off and the sink plug did not work, and that one was no better. What more can I say?
Go for the Comfort Rooms
The "standard" room was really cheap, but by no means a 4-star standard. The bathroom was quite shabby, and the rest of the room as well. The pictures I saw may have been taken in the comfort category, which also features air conditioning.
The pool is warm, but small, the changing area needs paint. Pool area itself reasonably clean. Restaurant was not open in the evening. Okay for the price, but 4 stars is something else ...
Great Hotel, centrally located. Easy access to the main railway station. Good leisure facilities. Good breakfast.

Went in search of food in Frankfurt when we arrived. Since queen Elizabeth was visiting the next day, the old part of town would be impossible to visit, so we made our way tonight through the old part of town. Glad we did.
... in a thousand questions a day).
* We know we had some unforgettable moments, and that was what it was all about.* We're sure we will annoy them for the rest of their lives by repeating the same stories over and over again.
A big thank you to those who encouraged us and those who replaced us at work.... Hope we can do the same for you one day!
And now It's time to stop 'cause the Ipad is getting wet.
See you ...
... are out by the thousands, eating, drinking, smoking and connecting with their neighbors. Such a vital time at night. But with our long day we decided to just go out from 7:30 - 10:30pm then head back to our hotel and into bed. Chris' pedometer marked we walked 11 kilometers today. And now my feet feel like it. So happy to be here. Special thanks to Cliff and Sandy who gave a condensed version of Rome....as we are going to Florence ...
... and had to thru security again. I noticed now all the staff were either speaking Turkish or Arabic amongst themselves. My food bag got stopped in the scanner and the German guy asked if I was very hungry? As it was all dry goods they let it go.
The next flight I was on the back row again but this time sharing with a mother and two kids. All ...
... was valued by Christies at $2 million…until the owner said he had drilled a hole in the bottom to make it a lamp. Now worth zip. And the personal ‘tour’ of the paintings was simple incredible. We have a whole new appreciation of art. It’s amazing what a small torch and a personal spiel can add to a painting.
