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.

... that just went up and up and up! Such incredible 360 view of Frankfurt though- totally worth it and great photos! We went inside the Cathedral itself too which was beautiful and were able to light candles together :) Beate took us out for hot drinks and then as it gets dark quite early here we took the train home again. We'd had such a big lunch we had a light dinner and tried German pretzels!!! Such a treat! Today we both woke up very early so clearly the ...
... to find the restaurant to meet Beate and Craig. Google maps told us it would take us 20 mins but it ended up taking 45 minutes which meant that we were able to see half of Germany. We ate authentic schnitzel with the most scrummy mushroom sauce. We ended up walking around the Christmas markets with Beate her friend. We also visited the cathedral tower which meant that we had to climb 328 spiralling stairs. The ...
Our second leg of flying was great, but quite long.. We had good seats and great food again, it's just that by the time we arrived we hadn't seen a bed for 46 hours and sleeping on the plane is never easy.. We had so much fun though and watched sooo many movies :) Landing in Frankfurt (Germany), went well- the only hiccup was catching the train from the airport to main city where our hotel is.. Like no ...
... This section was rebuilt in the old-style. There are plans to expand this part of town. I spent my last half-hour in the city walking along the riverfront. It was a cloudy, drizzly day, but it was still a nice walk.
Since I was traveling in and out of a major city, I got to ride Germany’s high speed trains for the first time. Talk about luxurious! It had very comfortable, reclining ...
... beds, not "put on" as we would. Lovely comfy beds though.
There has been a lot of toilet humour here. The toilets are really weird. The "hole" is right at the front, and where the hole would be in our toilets is a sort of shallow bowl. Any deposits get flushed away by super powerful water (so powerful your foot gets splashed). I'm wondering if we're sitting the wrong way, but the seat is the same as ours - very strange. (Just Googled it and saw the ...
