Arrived at the Lindner looking forward to spending a few days in a lovely apartment, as per description on hotels own website and hotels.com. I was travelling with my 18 year old son for both leisure and medical reasons This is a small snippet of what my room detail said I would have on my confirmed booking. 1 Queen Bed and 1 Double Sofa Bed 538-sq-foot (50-sq-meter) individually decorated room, balcony with river views Layout – Living room, dining area and sitting area Food & Drink – Kitchenette with full-sized fridge/freezer, hob, cookware/dishes/utensils and coffee/tea maker The first room they allocated my son and I had 1 queen bed and no sofa bed, the smallest of kitchens and a tiny table. No balcony and was so dark and dingy I though I was transported to 100 years ago. I went to the front desk and said that some mistake had been made as this was not satisfactory and I would need a separate bed for my son and a kitchen area and balcony, basically what I had paid for, ( 3 nights cost me £747 ) so I wanted what I had expected. The 2 guys on the front desk were nice enough, not happy that I didn't accept the first room but they still helped and said they could offer me a different room and that they were yet to carry out refurbishments to the lower floors. The new apartment would have a sofa bed but no kitchen, but It did have a kettle and a mini fridge, Woop Woop I showed them my booking which clearly states, kitchenette, balcony and sofa bed and 1 queen bed. Apparently this is not the case, its pot luck what room you get and what facilities you get despite your booking.. Looking up at the building from the outside its clear that only a handful of apartments have balcony's. This room was apparently the only other alternative that they could offer me, they gave me a room key and said to view it and then let them know if it was to be ok then they could make up the sofa bed. In comparison to the first room they offered this one was better, not what I booked but better. It was big and airy and a lot brighter than the first one, it had a desk and a chair with a small armchair in a seating area where the kettle is and in the front room along with the sofa bed a small armchair and a foot rest. I called and said that as this was the only option we would take it and after about half an hour a guy came to make the sofa bed up. Unfortunately the sofa bed was hiding a surprise, the bottom section of the bed was 2 straps, no support at all on the bottom 3rd of the bed. The mattress fell through both sides and in the middle and was unsafe to sit on / sleep on, unless you wanted half your body on the floor, as I helped my son up he said mum, do not get upset, I will share the queen, it has separate bedding and although not ideal it will be ok. On a plus note the views through the 5 big windows was stunning. To put it bluntly We got an oversized hotel room with a living area and NO apartment facilities that we wanted. An absolute con in my view. There is better and cheaper in the area and I will not be back to the Lindner I would however recommend that anyone in the area should eat at the Brick restaurant below as the steak was amazing, Its a shame I couldn't cook my own in the apartment I was looking forward to staying in.
Location, is great, cooperation, cleaning, but no minibar no kitchen microwave as reserved facilities Parking is available with 25€ no sofa bed as mentioned just sofa dining room and dressing room and only one bed
Not sure how this hotel gets high ratings. I have got to assume the people giving this location generous stars is based on the lowest of expectations (?). I have very little to say that is positive about this hotel. Believe me I don't go into this looking for only the bad. I simply seek the least and hope for the best. If a hotel fails to deliver on the basics- I feel that should be revealed so you can make a choice best for you and your family. There are things hotel management can fix and other things out of their control. If you are staying here on business and need a place to meet or a place to work with passable wifi- you MUST go elsewhere. You must. Nothing against this chain - just is not conducive for business. In this day and age wifi should function in ALL rooms and at a proper level. The wifi in this hotel creates tremendous frustration all around... simply hit and miss. Hooking up Roku is always a good test. Every hotel I have stayed out for the past 5 years - this was the first where the wifi signal was not even strong enough for Roku. THIS JUST IN: Hotel manager just told a colleague that all rooms will be getting stronger wifi routers. So at least that is being handled. Until then just know your ability to function through wifi is very limited. I am actually sitting at the front door of my room typing this since this is the only spot wifi works in my room! The hotel is very quick when it comes to responding to a guests needs like getting an iron, extra towels and so on. Every time I called for anything it was delivered within minutes. The front desk staff are attentive and helpful. Their abilities of engaging with people needs some work. We stood waiting to speak with one staffer at the front desk for quite some time while he was on a call. At some point he could have at least looked at us and say, "I"ll be with you soon" - but nothing. He never looked up , ignored that we and another couple were simply standing there waiting for his call to end. If the hotel is interested we have the staff person's name. He needs training. House keeping is limited at this hotel. They do just enough and not very thorough. I dropped water on the floor and as I wiped it up the dirt on the cloth looked like the floor was rarely cleaned. Also, sadly the housekeeper had bad hygiene, basically reeked from an odor that was quite disturbing. We made sure not to be around while he cleaned later in the week. Unbelievable right? It is not my intention of getting in the way of business for a hotel - I am simply reporting on this visit. The bathroom is not very user friendly but that is the case for most older European hotels. The towels are thin and quite used. Not sure why they leave so few towels each day. No wash cloths available. Very old towels and linens. Most of the furniture in the rooms we were stained and worn. For business purposes a tough place to function as I said. There is no business "center" or work room to speak of. The wifi is as bad as I have ever encountered in any hotel of recent memory. In my room I had to stand by my front door to get a signal. The wifi cuts in and out...calls are dropped and the signal too weak for video at any location in the hotel. I tried them all. The electric outlets are not balanced. Some have strong current whole others are very weak. The time it took to charge my cell or laptop varied by outlet. The entrance to the hotel and the small cement lobby has an odor. Whether they use dirty water to clean or the rug is filled with mildew- not a time I was in the lobby that you did not smell mildew and musty aromas. The restaurants in the lobby are good especially Harry's Bar. Excellent. Plus there is a great supermarket within steps of the hotel. If you care to order a bucket of ice, free if you pick it up, they charge if they bring it up... As far as overall comfort - not easy to come by at this hotel. I find it off-putting that they leave mops and cleaning products in the hallways most of the time. (See picture) . We tried a few rooms settling on the one with the least stains in the carpeting and best layout. Air conditioning units are at least 20 years old or possibly more. We did mention a good part of this to Hotels.com - they were kind enough to help us move to another hotel 4 days into the trip. Overall the design of the hotel is what it is, but all else could be improved upon especially for what they charge for the rooms. There are fine hotels in the same vicinity, like the Westin and Radisson, which proved more hospitable , clean and welcoming
Had a meeting there for 16 people and they were very accommodating with the room, breaks, lunches and even dinner. Had the BBQ for one dinner at the Brick Restaurant and it was great also. The location is basically on the Main river with walking, biking, running trail for KMs. About 400 meters from the hotel are dozens of restaurants of various themes including traditional apple wine and "green" sauce. Worked out great. Suzanne and Franzia helped out. Successful meeting.
Spend 4 nights here end of June in a first class double room. The interior of the room was a bit out-dated. The bathroom had several mold stains, the maximum hight of the shower was very low (I'm not that tall: 1m83cm). The swimming pool was out of order the largest portion of our stay and on Sunday the water supply was cut-off. Breakfast for two at EUR64 (EUR32 each) was a bit expensive...the buffet itself was perfect. Maybe it was bussy in the hotel, the waiting for the elevators was rather long. Parking was excellent. WIFI worked perfect.
Honestly I was not expected that this hotel would be that amazing! rooms ( we've stayed in business) are huge, nice, have everything you need. breakfast is tasty and the personal are super friendly. this hotel is perfect for a short and long stay! Thanks a lot Lindner Hotel & Residence Main Plaza and all the stuff working there! I would recommend this place with 5+++ stars!
Lindner hotel is located near the city centre of Frankfurt. The hotel itself is good, we stayed in a triple room which was more like a little suite. The room had a small livingroom including tv, radio/cd player, a couch and a work desk. There is a seperate bedroom as big as a normal hotelroom, it has a tv and airco in it. The bathroom has been seperated from the living/bed room and has a shower, bath, toilet, washingtable in it. There is a swimmingpool on the mainfloor, not that big but it is okay. Breakfast is basic. Overall, this is a good average hotel to stay for a shortbreak.
Great hotel...strongly reccomended. Beautiful room and effective service Very gentle employes. I will be happy to stay there again at my future business travel in Frankfurt . Very close to the finalcial district
My stay was pleasant, thanks to the staff of hotel. Reception desk people were very helpful, the room was spacious and clean, breakfast was good. The hotel is located at accessible area, no any problems with traffic, taxis arrived within 3-5 minutes
Big room, nice view, near the centre, helpful staff. OK for business trip, for family and also for excursion to Frankfurt all the people about the hotel, restaurant and wellness were very accommodating
