The best places to stay in Frankfurt
On a Budget
- If you're looking for somewhere colourful and lively, but with no frills, one of the best places to stay is The Goldman. The design is pretty minimalist with some fun touches. 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.
For City Chic
- If you've 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 perfect.
- 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 hotels if you're looking for cutting edge chic on a budget.
- Libertine Lindenberg combines sleek design features with a classy aesthetic to create an awesome hotel. Boasting excellent rooms, superb city views and a buzzy cocktail bar, it's a great base for a weekend in Frankfurt.
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, if your company can run to it, a very stylish business centre. This is also perfect if you're looking for somewhere in the heart of town.
- Steigenberger Frankfurter Hof offers opulence at every turn. Whether it's in the hotel's Michelin starred restaurant or the deluxe spa, luxury abounds at this classy five-star establishment.
For an out-of-town Schloss
- Escape Frankfurt's metropolitan surrounds to Schloss Hotel Kronenberg to the north of the city. There's a lot going on here from the striking architecture to an art collection that includes pieces from Titian and Rubens. An onsite golf course and an excellent restaurant may make it hard to tear yourself away.
- The Rothschilds may be one of the worlds most famous families and staying at Villa Rothschild Kempinski feels like stepping through a porthole into their lives. It's hard to look past the hotel's stunning 2** Michelin restaurant but there's so much more to the place than just the sumptuous food.
For an apartment
- Browse the options are our online partner Booking.com.
- Frankfurt Airport is a major international hub situated about 13km South West of the city centre. There are various options for getting into town - either by bus, train or taxi.
- For those keen on hiring a car, we recommend visiting our online partner Rentalcars.
- Frankfurt Hauptbanhof has daily train services between all of Germany's major cities.
- May to September is the best time to visit Frankfurt with summer sun, festivals and outdoor events.
