“Near to Hauptbahnhof”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

Hotel is good for the cost you pay. Good breakfast and very close to the main train station. Though all rooms are non smoking, I felt smoke smell while entering the room. Wifi is OK and not too fast. But still good. Good staff and helpful though. I recommend staying here again.

Room Tip: Road side rooms are bit noisy. The other side is quite.

the hotel is descent, rooms are clean, we are Veg, people so could not able to entertained the mix Breakfast.
the rates are proper. Main advantage was, it is just next to Main frankfurt Rail station, so going anywhere is very easy through train. The shopping area is also not to far from there,
Inall, enjoyed thee stay.

We chose Pension Alpha because of the price and location and were not disappointed.
Also, it was hard to find a room for 4 in Frankfurt (parents + 2 kids) and they offered one.
When we arrived one of the beds had dirty sheets. I told the front desk and it was fixed up within 10 minutes. The rest of the room was very clean. It was utilitarian but roomy, with a table where we could eat our breakfast.
Two of our three days in Frankfurt were side trips by train and this location was very close to the main train station so it was very convenient.
The breakfast was simple but fresh and there was plenty of food.
If we ever go back to Frankfurt I'd stay here again.

I stayed for two days in Pension Alpha I found it very nice and comfortable, People in other forums said rooms were not clean but things have been improving. The hostel is near Hauptbanhof which is a great advante if you are alone and you have to go back to Frankfurt Airport to get your plain. On the other hand, the staff were not really nice at all.

Breakfast is really good and tasty. If I had to comeback to FRankfurt for a short trip I would definetely choose Pension Alpha, for its price and nice rooms.

The hostel is located just steps from the main railway station - hauptbanhof. It offers a decent standard of a reasonable price. The rooms are fairly spacious and modern. Linen and seemed to be clean, but unfortunately, the day after the visit I got a rash. Breakfast varied and good. I recommend this hostel has given people who go to/ from the airport to the train and are eager to see some of the city.
