Savoy Hotel Frankfurt
Travel Blogs from Frankfurt
Weather: fine and cloudy Local bus into town to catch 10.48 am ICE train to Frankfurt, went without a hitch this time! Walked to Hotel Savoy (4 star), settled in then walked around Frankfurt city to orientate ourselves in this city of 700,000 people. First impressions of Frankfurt are of a vibrant developing city with several new high rise …
Well unfortunately all great things have to end at some stage and the last night of the best holiday ever was spent in Frankfurt sitting on the banks of the river with 1000's of other Frankfurters drinking wine and enjoying the 30 plus degree weather.
We had a great night apart from Kira losing her favorite souveneir necklace somewhere in …
Endlich ist es soweit! Nach drei Jahren Vorbereitung ist nun endlich der Tag der Abreise gekommen. Ich freue mich endlich vom kalten Deutschland in wärmere Gefilde aufzubrechen :-) Finally the time for departure has come! After three years of preparation it's time to say goodbye and head over to warmer countries :-) Let the adventure ...
... love their cigarettes, ghastly, even the rental car (new VW Passat Wagon, manual, left hand drive) pongs of smoke!!! Driving on the other side of the road (wrong of course) is quite stressful, especially with the maniacs here! Our Sat Nav had a hissy fit when we finally turned it on for the first time and it only chose to work after it ...
... Renault, Seat, Skoda, Smart, Subaru, Suzuki, Tesla, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo. That's a lot of cars to look at!
It took us 30 minutes just to line up and get tickets and when we were finally inside, there were people bumping elbows the whole way along. Because BMW had their own hall, they even built a test track looping above the crowd to showcase the new i3 electric and i8 hybrid cars. In the next hall there were most of the normal North American and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Savoy Hotel Frankfurt
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.
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.
