Toyoko Inn Frankfurt Main Station

As an overnight stay after the Mrs Greenbird concert in Frankfurt, I decided to opt for a hotel chain, which is quite unknown in Europe: Toyoko Inn is a Japanese budget hotel franchise, which only drives two hotels in Europe – one of them is right next to Frankfurt Main Station. A very competitive price despite a trade fair in the city gave me that easy choice – and finally a good stay!

Toyoko Inn Frankfurt – Location

The hotel is located right next to the Southern part of the main train station. From the Southern main exit, it is less than five minutes to the hotel. You just have to pass the Intercity Hotel and a Parking Garage.

The area might not be the poshest one in all Frankfurt, but the train station as well as the direct surrounding of the hotel offers a lot of opportunities to grab a bite and enjoy yourself. There are good connections into the remaining city.

 

Toyoko Inn Frankfurt – The Club

You can purchase a lifelong membership in the Toyoko Club. If you purchase the membership in one of the two European hotels, the membership is 15 Euro. The prices in international locations is similar. You membership card will then deal as a key card. You may also do reservations six months in advance instead of three, get a discount on the prices and have a one hour earlier check-in. There are also free stays every tenth night and some special deals in Japan. You don’t need to be club member, though – you are just able to book later at a higher price.

 

Toyoko Inn Frankfurt – Rooms

I got the major size room, which was 58 Euro, including city tax and breakfast. One has to mention that there was a medical – pharmaceutical trade fare in Frankfurt at that time, so that these prices were more than just competitive. The room was compact – one sign even suggest to put your luggage underneath the be (which neither was a box-spring nor had a slatted frame). The work desk was quite spacious and there was even an empty fridge in the room.

The bathroom had that capsuled concept, which you might know from former Etap Hotels. However, the Toyoko Inn design was nicer and did not feel to be that cheap.

 

Toyoko Inn Frankfurt – Breakfast / Food

The breakfast area might have the same karma like a 1980s youth hostel dining hall, but the quality of food is really nice. The selection is not too wide-spread, but definitely sufficient. There are different selections of bread, cold cuts, some eggs and sausage, but also miso soup or rice.

In the same area, the hotel also runs a hotel bar, which serves light snacks like Edamame or Japanese fondue.

 

Toyoko Inn Frankfurt – Services

The check-in was very friendly and efficient. I also liked the quality of the WiFI.

The hotel was spotlessly clean. However, it did not feature something like a gym. The only remarkable amenity during your stay was likely the coin laundry.

 

Toyoko Inn Frankfurt – My View

I absolutely enjoyed my stay at the Toyoko Inn. Surely, it is not a five star Hilton Hotel – but you don’t pay the price for it as well. Toyoko Inn has a concept and they just drive it. The only critics is the bed, which felt too bad for me. I still decided, due to the incredible value for money, that I will just put the Toyoko Inn Frankfurt to the Top Pick! category.
