Hotel Rossija0.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
If you are looking for a cheaper hotel in the red light area above the Frankfurt underground system (kicks in about 5am and sounds like mild earthquake) which is very basic with strange smell in the room (26) then this is for you. Room quite large. Towels thin and tired. Basically clean.
When it comes to the hotel I can't have any complaints at all. The beds were very good. The breakfast was good as well and the fact that we could park the var behind a gate for 10€ a day was very nice. The second day we could even park for free as long as we were sightseeing in town. Good service. The area in which the hotel is located isn't very fancy. Homeless people on the street everywhere and a lot of erotic shops and bars in the entire area. It all looks, feels and is very dodgy. Nevertheless, the main station of Frankfurt is on walking distance just as the Altstadt and the the business district. So when it comes to that the hotel is located perfectly. All in all we enjoyed our stay!
I love places like the Hotel Rossija, that offer no frills, clean, basic accommodation at an affordable price to travellers. I have stayed here three times now, twice with friends and once with my elderly mother. The rooms and bathrooms are spotless. Yes, there is a certain 'Russian' flavour to the staff and customer service, but you get used to that and it has its own attraction. Yes, the area it is in is not leafy embassy quarter style, but in all the times I have stayed there, I have never felt unsafe, or been approached by anyone unsavoury. Still, if you want gambling, good kebabs or sex bars, it's the place to be. I live in a city myself and have been on many streets such as Moselstrasse. I survived and intending vistors will too. Beautifully crisp rolls (and plenty of them) on offer with the continental breakfast each day. Also on offer, cereals, toast, juice, coffee, tea, jams, butter, hams, salamis, cheese, tomatoes, eggs, cucumber - only the churlish would complain. No swimming pool, no restaurant, no English speaking channels on TV and no free wifi, but do you know what? You'll survive without them.
Booked this as it was £150 a night but £150 a night cheaper than many other places. (Day before trade part of the Frankfurt Motor Show.) It was very clean - you would not want to be there in the heat - no aircon or ventilation. I checked the price at another time - say November - was £31 a night including breakfast. So they bumped it up 5X for the IAA - astonishing you can do this.
If you value your safety, do not ever stay in this hotel. Our sightseeing consisted of seeing drug users shoot up on the sidewalks, the "locals" we're mainly strippers, prostitutes & pimps, and if you want anything to eat after 11pm you better like McDonalds. The hotel room was hot, cooled only by a broken fan or opening the window with no screen. The Internet was 10 euros, and would be lucky to get 5 minutes before getting kicked out.every time another door opened or closed, ours shook & sounded like someone was trying to break in. Over all, the worst hotel experience I have ever had, The cheap price is not worth risking your life! Do not stay here!
Had a bad experience with the workers here after leaving a passport, sunglasses, and money accidentally. Rang them up and they were very unhelpful, refused to send my passport to the next hostel I was in in Munich and repeatedly hung up on me on the phone. Had to sort my own courier service out to pick my items up. Sunglasses went 'missing' too even though they were with the rest of the items. However, the actual hotel room was okay, nothing special. Not a very nice area either, hard to access the hostel via the gate and lots of drug users in in the street outside.
The hotel was fine. Clean rooms,pleasant staff and okay breakfast. The outside was odd, its situated behind the street in a central courtyard and you have to buzz through to reception to open the door. The area is very dodgy and seedy. It was fine for us but I would think twice if you are a single or group of females as I would imagine that you could feel intimidated.
Our check in was met by rude and unhelpful staff, actually they were terriblle. We were ignored to the point that it was uncomfortable. There was a noisey background in the hotel. The neighborhood is not great. in general, Everything was just BAD.
When you forget about the surroundings (at night) it is a great place to stay for the right money. The service is very good (multi-lingual), helpful and the breakfasts are surprisingly good value. It is clean, safe and while the wi-fi is not free, for the price it is worth it. For a 1 night stopover, it is great. Central and convenient.
I first visited the Rossija in 2008 and I'm delighted to see it's still going. Plus, I think it has had a bit of a face-lift. Still FANTASTIC budget value about three minutes walk from the Hauptbahnhof. Large bedrooms, clean bathrooms with loads of hot water, flat screen TVs with cable TV, lovely breakfast (cereals, tea/coffee, juices, yogurts, crispy bread rolls, toast, jam, cheese, butter, ham and other processed meats etc.) included. Seemed to be lots of Polish builders using it as a base, friendly guys. Met them at breakfast. Yes, the surrounding area is not parkland or cafe society, but the hotel itself is a safe place. Unlike others who would not recommend it for their elderly mother, I took my elderly (76 year old) mother there, not once but twice, and would do it again. Great little hotel. Long may it continue. Have included a picture of our room and bathroom. Wifi available at a price, or from a couple of open local networks.
