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.

... pieces of German schnitzel. The sizes of these things were so big, and I only got half of what the largest size is! I got the Jägerschnitzel, which is served with a mushroom cream sauce and french fries. I was told that I didn't have to eat the entire thing ahead of time, but I was hungry from not having a full lunch, and to my surprise, I ended up eating every last bit! It was so unbelievably good.
Completely stuffed, we headed out to a bar that evening and enjoyed ...
... I cleared customs and were on our way to the S train/subway to get to Frankfurt City. The streets were deserted as it was early morning. There were broken bottles, garbage and fireworks everywhere! Looks like they had an epic party here last night. Nothing was open so we headed to the Frankfurt Cathedral first and then Romer itself. It got chillier as we made it further toward the river but continued on anyway. ...
... German lady who showed us round and made us welcome. We are in a regular suburb in a regular residential apartment block, the apartment is big clean and just perfect for us in Berlin, buses near, underground near. See what happens when you wake at 3 ;) Anyway I will post this, or as the program says publish it and see if I get any other surprises about old and new posts. We explore Berlin in the morning, time for to get some ...
We picked up our VW Passat at the airport and drove the autobahn to Freiburg (a drive of about 2½ hours). Our GPS had been programmed to go to the Hotel Schwarzwald Hof. It got us to Freiburg very efficiently, but when we approached the hotel it just started sending us around in circles. We called Mary, who informed us that you can't get there from here—the hotel is in the middle of a pedestrians-only ...
Up all night getting ready for a 6:30 am flight. Boarding was easy, the plane only half full. Managed to get an exit row seat, so we could stretch out really easily. Had a mongrel screaming kid just near us, but noise cancelling headphones shut him out. The flight was uneventful, but we arrived a little late. This meant that we only had ...
