    A clean and quiet place in the suburbs of Frankfurt
    • Leisure trip
    • Solo traveller
    • Studio French
    • Stayed 4 nights

    If you come by train and then walk over to the hotel on the east side of the railway, the hotel is hard to find: there are no signs in the little pedestrian area on the East side of the hotel; the ground level is occupied by some offices, and reception is on the second floor. From the west side, though, the hotel is clearly visible. The hotel is quite far from the airport and 35 min from Frankfurt by train. If you have business in Frankfurt, this is not a convenient place to stay, but it's not a bad choice in the Bad Homburg - Friedrichsdorf area.

    A quiet place, clean, safe and rather comfortable.
