Click here for the best places to stay in Frankfurt

Frankfurt is a true business capital. Its skyscrapers glisten, its stock exchange soars, and everyone is busily reaching for the top. A top which you can actually visit, the 200metre high platform of Main Tower. From here you can see the best of old and new which make up Frankfurt. And, as well as the new, there are some lovely old buildings. Many of the best places to stay in Frankfurt might appear to be aimed at the business traveller, but rest assured there is something for everyone!

Römer Square is where to go to find the best of the old buildings. And here, and in the rest of the old town, you'll run into plenty of other visitors. As well as the beautiful architecture they're also drawn to the museums - Frankfurt is second only to Berlin when it comes to museums.


⁃ the Senckenberg Museum - a natural history museum,

⁃ the German Film Museum,

⁃ the German Architecture Museum,

⁃ the Museum of Modern Art,

⁃ the Museum of Regional Historic Art and Culture,

⁃ the Städelsches Kunstinstitut - another art museum,

⁃ the Goethe Haus and Museum - birthplace of Germany's famous author,

⁃ the Jewish Museum,

⁃ the Museum of Applied Arts,

⁃ and a local history museum.

And that's not all of them.

Others are here for the club scene, which benefits from the multiple universities as well as city money.

Frankfurt sounds expensive because it's the financial capital of Continental Europe. But it doesn't have to be. Several of the above mentioned museums are free, or are at least free on certain days of the week or month, so it's worth planning ahead.

Frankfurt also has several very beautiful parks and gardens and there are numerous walking routes recommended by the Tourist Office. You can also see the old walls, and explore some of the medieval residential areas. And there are numerous churches worth poking your head inside at least. And a very impressive cemetery, the Hauptfriedhof.

Best places to stay in Frankfurt

On a Budget

As a financial and business capital, Frankfurt hosts numerous big events and trade shows, so, whether you're on a tight budget or not, be careful to book your visit around these events. Hotel prices are hiked significantly. At other times there are plenty of reasonably priced options.

  • If you're looking for somewhere colourful and lively, but with no frills, one of the best places to stay in Frankfurt is The Goldman. The design is pretty minimalist with some fun touches. And all the rooms are themed in bright colours. The Goldman is well located for the city's main clubs, so if you're here for the nightlife it's ideal.
  • Looking for originality? Then book 25 Hours Tailored by Levis. Don't be put off though, the name seems to be referring to the 50s and 60s modernist era decor, blended in a lived in way that makes for a comfortable, youthful, even arty vibe. With 76 rooms starting at less than £60 a night, this is also one of the best places to stay in Frankfurt if you're looking for good value.

For City Chic

If you're here for the lifestyle you might be interested in visiting foodie heaven the Kleinmarkthalle, which is near the Zeil, one of the best known shopping streets in Europe. There's also a flea market on Saturdays, right by the river. Which is a nice place to hang out to check out the city's cafe culture.

The local tipple is Ebbelwoi, or Ebbelwei, which translates to apple wine. It can be found all over town, but especially in Kneipen, a special kind of bar.

In amongst the business hotels and globally recognised brands are some really unique places to stay. Some of the 'clubbiest' even offer 'Nightclubbing Packages'.

  • If you're ever dreamed of sleeping in a 'chill out room', then The Pure has got to be on your list! It's ALL white. Really. Almost EVERYTHING is white. Not just the linen and the staff uniforms, also the sofas and beanbags, the bar, stools. and even a lot of the art is white with a bit of black. So if you're thinking hip and clubby, then this is one of the best places to stay in Frankfurt.
  • For über modern chic in seductive black, rather than pure white, then Roomers is probably for you. Shiny black and subtle lighting is the flattering, seductive theme here, from the award winning Burlesque style bar to the excellent restaurant and extensive spa. While this sounds pretty lux., Roomers is actually fairly reasonably priced, so probably one of the best places to stay in Frankfurt if you're looking for cutting edge chic on a budget.

For Five Star Luxury

  • If you're looking for five star luxury, and elegance with it, the Villa Kennedy is the hotel that we'd recommend. Even the spa looks like a ballroom from the Titanic. There's a lovely terrace and courtyard, and, in case your company can run to it, a very stylish business centre. This is also one of the best places to stay in Frankfurt if you're looking for somewhere in the heart of town.
