The hotel was selected for a weekend stay to visit the Christmas market, a trip to a football match with my son and generally see the sites of Frankfurt. Having made similar trips to Germany for the same reasons to Cologne, Berlin & Nuremburg I believe the most important factor for such a visit is the location of the hotel followed by the hotel itself. My son and I had no problems with the hotel apart from one small issue of soft pillows which were changed when requested. Our stay included a free continental breakfast and free Wi-Fi plus a superior twin bedded room which more than met our needs and was great value for money.
It's location however was an issue. It was great for train connections to the airport and for us the football stadium with the main line train station directly opposite the hotel but it was a good 15 minutes walk to the main shopping centre where the Christmas market was situated. Fortunately there were some good restaurants to eat on route which meant that we didn't have to walk all the way back into town again of a night time to eat. Meals were available in the hotel but like any hotel were pricey. The underground can be used to visit the centre of town and cannot be more than two stops. The area toward the railway station is a little bit seedy but not threatening in anyway. Would I use the hotel again. For the service it provided definitely. For location, I would probably look for something a little closer to the main centre area.
We stayed for 2 nights and chose this hotel because of the modern decor, proximity to railway station and cost. We had an excellent breakfast and the reception staff were very helpful. WiFi was provided and this worked well. We were able to control the room temperature and we kept nice and warm watching the snow fall outside.
We were able to walk to the old town and the shops and as we were using the public transport system, proximity to the station was excellent.
"Excellent hôtel à deux pas de la gare et du métro"
En suivant le quai 24 jusqu'au parking, et surtout en traversant ce dernier, on se demande un peu où on va tomber un pâté de maison plus loin, mais on est vite rassurés: le quartier est tranquille (on peut même tirer sa valise à roulettes sur la chaussée), et l'hôtel très accueillant. Réception et chambres design, vaste salle de petit déjeuner buffet (excellent, très copieux et varié) donnant sur un petit jardin calme (avec sapin 'déstructuré' - comme dans le hall - brillamment éclairé en ce temps de Noël, chambres claires, parfaitement insonorisées, très bien équipées, d'une propreté parfaite... bref, impeccables à tous points de vue. Et en refaisant le chemin en sens inverse, on est en 5 minutes à la station 'Hauptbahnhof' du métro (U-Bahn), du train de banlieue (S-Bahn) et des trams 11 et 12 desservant le marché de Noël, la cathédrale, l'opéra, les musées, le jardin botanique (illuminé à Noël), le zoo en deux, trois ou quatre stations au maximum.
I was just passing through Frankfurt and did not need a "luxury" hotel so Lloyed Hotel was just what was required: very pleasnt inside and perfect for a night's sleep, shower and much better than average breakfast.
