Stayed here for one night before leaving for a long distance flight from Frankfurt airport. Alpha is located only a few steps from Frankfurt main station, where I arrived. Area is slightly dodgy, but that applies to all hotels in that area. Alpha resides in a 70s concrete building and consists of the front building and a back building with...

I was looking for a place to spend some nights while in Frankfurt but not very expensive so I chose Pension Alpha. It was a great surprise considering the price. The rooms wore very clean, and they tide up our room and made our beds every morning. The receptions staff was very nice and helpful. The breakfast buffet was one...

I wanted a place to stay that was central and good value. This place ticked the boxes. As others have said - the staff are curt and not too helpful. Decor could do with updating. Breakfast ample but basic. Would stay again if I wanted an inexpensive place to stay

I traveled to Frankfurt in June and stayed at Pension Alpha for 2 nights. The location is great since it is located near the main train/subway station. You can take the train from the International airport and get there in less than 30 minutes. In addition to that there are some coaches near the main train station you could take...

Stayed July 2012. The room was clean, beds were comfortable and bathroom facilities quite good. Staff were either rude or uncaring. Breakfast was included, and though very basic, was reasonable. We had a lot of street noise - too much to open a window at night and no air-conditioning or fans - and noisy people in the next room -...

The service at the hotel was okay. When we first checked in the man at the desk was less than friendly, however later in the day we were greeted by someone much more personable. The price was great, and included with that was free internet (that actually worked well), and a free buffet which we missed cause we slept in....

Positive: Clean, spacious and well equipped room (room for 4 people) Breakfast included in price Great location few minutes walk from train station Negative: If you leave windows open, noise from outside from the street wakes you up, and if you close the windows it's very stuffy and hot Breakfast area is a bit cramped, to the point it's nearly...

We stayed one night, checking in at 3 am after a long drive and just needing to crash. The room was on the 5th floor. Not a huge room but enough for what we needed. Most of the outlets didnt work in the room. The furnishings, linens and towels need updating but not bad. Despite the area, it was quiet....

Dear, I am not recommending this hotel. The owners are cheating. I was booking the room with bathroom 3 months ago. I had the confirmation on the reservation and price on the room. When I come the guy in reception told me that the booking was canceled (I had not any information) and can give me room with out bathroom...

Pension Alpha is one of the cheapest good options in Frankfurt. location is OK, not far from the main station and the subway. There are two buildings with rooms. I had a siingle room that felt like a small appartment under the roof. It's central, clean and comfortable, in other words, good value.
