Live like a king for a pauper's price at the Am Berg.
The romantic sandstone villa with garden is located on a
quiet street south od Südbahnhof. For those in know
(including you, now) it's a creatively decorated
secret hiding place within the city limits.
Description: Hotel am Berg used to
be the residence of the family who owned Kempff Brewery.
For a basic single without a bath (bathroom down the hall),
it is quite cheap: 34 Euro (29 Euro on weekends) Our room cost
63 Euro per night with bath and Sat-TV (price is 71 Euro on
All room rates are slightly higher during Frankfurt trade fairs
(considered "High season").
Breakfast is 9.00 Euro. Parking is free. Unique Qualities: Hotel am Berg looks
like a castle from the outside, and inside the rooms are all
differently decorated. I stayed there with a friend who was
visiting and our double room was done up in a far-out 70's style.
I peeked into another room that had a fake tiger pelt carpet
and seemed to have the wild animal theme. Comparative Price: less expensive than average
secret insider’s tip, this bed and breakfast is quietly
situated in a private villa in the quarter of Sachsenhausen. Surrounded
by an air of calmness, its special ambience and warm decor make
every visitor feel at home and at ease.
There are a small number of guest rooms and most are en suite
but fresh fruit, tea- and coffee-making facilities, as well as
news-papers and magazines, are always available and the guests
share a comfortable living and TV room. Am Berg is the perfect meeting place for travellers who
enjoy spending breakfast with fellow travellers, talking about
„... in a lovely old sandstone building
in the quiet back streets ... clean, pleasant, and friendly."
Great hotel in a old, beautiful mansion. Interesting interiors,
Car park. Quiet neighborhood, friendly staff. With or without
breakfast, with your own or shared bathroom and toilet. Good value, good location.

colorful, romantic inn, the Am Berg is not so much a hotel
as a nice guesthouse. Because of its location, hidden away in a
residential area near the Südbahnhof (south train station),
many locals aren't even aware it exists.
The Mock-Tudor-style hotel was built in the late 1800s and has a
quiet backyard garden where guests may relax. Each room has its
own unique decor. A stay here is worth much
more than the price.
