Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights in Germany have evolved significantly over the course of the last decades. During the 1920s and early 1930s, lesbian and gay people in Berlin were generally tolerated by society and many bars and clubs specifically pertaining to gay men were opened.

Same-sex marriage has been legal since 1 October 2017, after the Bundestag passed legislation giving same-sex couples full marital and adoption rights on 30 June 2017.

Frankfurt has a long history of being a  gay friendly city and in downtown we can find a few gay friendly bars as well as Stall or  Zum Schwejk Cologne.

Frankfurt, a central German city on the river Main, is a major financial hub that’s home to the European Central Bank. It’s the birthplace of famed writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, whose former home is now the Goethe House Museum. Like much of the city, it was damaged during World War II and later rebuilt. The reconstructed Altstadt (Old Town) is the site of Römerberg, a square that hosts an annual Christmas market.

This hotel is clever, full of details, every nook and cranny has been used for something cool, beautiful or useful.

Every floor has a theme and every room is decorated and furnished accordingly.

There is plenty of hints to take action and support different causes, done in a very engaging way.

My room had plenty of space, even with the antique sled in it! 😉
The are great social spaces to hang and the Shuk restaurant is very good!

On one side, the access is very easy from the Hauptbahnhof (no more than a couple of blocks), but to walk towards the river you do go through a very sketchy part of town. There is a rehab/needle-exchange facility that gathers a very rough and very large crowd, right outside the door.

The hotel is super comfortable and pleasingly unlike chain hotels – and very handy to the Hauptbahnhof – so only a 10 minute train ride away from the Frankfurt Airport.

It’s a great spot to stay for a short visit as you’re within walking distance of so much, including great restaurants, like the Salzkammer, shopping, the financial district, and the museums are all walkable from here. Beds are comfortable and rooms all have distinct touches that make them fun and funky.

The train station area is a bit dodgy, especially at night, and worth keeping this in mind. The hotel itself is comfortable, clean, with a great breakfast, and in finer weather a small outdoor patio. Street noise was an issue (we’ve stayed several times; this was by far the noisiest; it was a Saturday night and our window was close to the road as well as a construction site). The hotel is clean, and the staff friendly and helpful.

The 25 hours Hotel by Levis is located in a walking distance from Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof, the city’s central train station. It is really close to one of the largest red light districts in the world (according to Wikipedia), Bahnhofsviertel.

Be aware of some beggars and drug users in this area. But, as a matter of fact, Frankfurt’s red light district is as safe and professional as it can be. There is a large concentration of foreigners in the region as well as a plenty of ethical restaurants. It is also a 15 minutes walk from the riverside and about 20 minutes walk from downtown (Galeria Kaufhof). By the way, it is close to Messe Frankfurt. Anyway, if you don’t like walking, there is a variety of public transportation options nearby (train, subway, VLT, etc.). Or, the best of all, the hotel has available some mini coopers for the guests, free of charges, so you can drive by yourself through the city ?.

The hotel itself has a warm, cozy, young and welcoming atmosphere. It’s quite a small hotel with a very friendly staff. Check-in was quick and cordial. The room, large and comfortable, in a trendy decoration. Bed was spacious and linens adequate. I just loved the way the hotel offer their toilette amenities (shampoos and soap) in larges pots. It seemed economical to me from an environmental point of view. The hotel also offers a pair of Levis jeans and a bag, if you need.

It has a delicious restaurant (IMA), really crowded in the evenings (so make sure to reserve in advance), where is also served a continental and varied breakfast in the mornings. Common areas at this hotel are wonderful, like the business center and the amazing rooftop. Don’t miss them! The hotel does not have an indoor fitness center but it has a partnership with a fitness chain nearby. I really enjoyed my overall stay for so many reasons that I undoubtedly would recommend this hotel for anyone heading to Frankfurt for business or pleasure.

For a budget hotel you couldn’t ask for more. Basic but more than comfortable, good WIFI, comfortable bed, shower and bathroom.

Breakfast buffet is amazing.

I highly recommend this hotel as well as all the other Motel One’s I’ve stayed in.

Good location, with walking distance to the central station. Great value.

It’s a great motel! Great location, very helpful and friendly English-speaking staff, modern, yummy buffet breakfast, restful king-sized bed and good wifi. It’s outstanding. Just to point out though, some people complain it has no bathtub or landline – these didn’t matter to us.

The shower is big and with wifi we had internet telephony plus our cell phones. It’s beside a large mall with everything you need and walking distance to a lot of attractions. We would gladly stay here again.

I was very impressed with the overall experience at the Motel One. The room was very comfortable and suited my needs for a short trip. The only thing I missed in the room was tea/coffee making facilities. The staff were very professional and helpful, and all spoke English.

Breakfast was more than ample. Hotel is situated in a nice quiet area, with a big shopping mall across the road and within walking distance of the underground/tube station. Free wi-fi. Excellent value.

The hotel is close to central train station, within 15 min walking distance. It is just opposite a big shopping called Skyline Plaza which has all the major European Brands. Hotel is clean, modern and with full amenities. Breakfast is great and has indoor and outdoor tables for people who enjoys having breakfast under the sun. The check in was fast and efficient and the hotel has a grand and beautiful lobby.

The only thing I found was the lack of kettle in the room where I couldn’t boil some hot water at night to make a cup of tea. Other than that, the staffs were extremely helpful and overall it was a nice stay.

The Motel One is located right next to the convention center and a mall — surrounded b construction and a somewhat modern area. While the setting is somewhat sterile, the hotel itself is a typical Motel One offering: small, thoughtfully laid out rooms with amazing style.

One of the phenomenal things about Motel One is how busy it is: the lobby was constantly active with people meeting, talking, and hanging out. It felt, despite the sterile neighborhood, active. I visited a friend at a major chain hotel — his company way paying for a five star experience — and the feel was not as comfortable and nice.

The staff was nice, efficient, and had me in my room in no time; plus the bed was comfortable.

I’d happily choose this (or any) Motel One in the future.

3. the niu Charly 3* – LGBT  Friendly Hotels Frankfurt Germany

Situated in Frankfurt/Main, 600 m from English Theatre, the niu Charly features accommodation with a bar, private parking and a shared lounge. Among the facilities at this property are a 24-hour front desk and luggage storage space, along with free WiFi throughout the property. The property is close to popular attractions like German Film Museum, Senckenberg Natural History Museum and Eiserner Steg.

A buffet breakfast is available each morning at the hotel.

The niu Charly offers a sun terrace.

Hotel details

In a commercial area replete with shopping and dining options, this modern hotel is a 13-minute walk from an observation deck at Main Tower, and a 4-minute walk from Frankfurt central station.

The trendy rooms feature complimentary Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs and en suite, shower-only bathrooms.

Amenities include a lobby lounge and a bar. Breakfast, served in an airy dining room that has a terrace, is available for a surcharge.

The hotel is located near the Taunusstraße street, which leaves not the most pleasant emotions. This is a street that is crowded with casinos, strip clubs, bookmakers and a plentiful number of homeless people. I recommend going around this street a block or two on the way to the hotel and choosing a different route to the old town from the hotel, for example via Mainzer Landstraße > Taunusanlage, which goes to the old Opera house.

The rooms are are modern – we think it may have been recently renovation – clean, if a bit on the smaller side. The hotel is very well-located near the train station, and also not too long of a walk to the center of the city. A nice perk is that you can get a drink voucher for the in-house bar if you opt for forego room cleaning for a night.

We stayed at the niu Charly in December while visiting the Christmas markets and other attractions in the area. The hotel is located close to the train station in Frankfurt, which was very convenient to walk to and from. As others have mentioned, the surrounding area can be a bit unpleasant, but we never had any trouble when taking the shortest route from the train station to the hotel, instead of taking other side streets to get there. Otherwise, the location was very convenient for accessing the train and sightseeing in Frankfurt.

The hotel room was in great condition and was very modern. Very spacious bathroom with an awesome shower. You can also have breakfast and visit the bar on the top floor of the hotel.

Arriving at the airport there’s a free shuttle bus to the train station which only took about 10 mins if even ..& even better the city was only a 15 min train ride!

You can very much walk (10 mins) from the main station to the hotel or take an Uber if you have too much luggage (google maps didn’t help with this as it took us about a half hour kept bringing us in circles & it was only down the road ).

So let’s get into it.. the hotel is in a kind of “ dodgy “ area of Frankfurt .. My friend & I didn’t realize this. It’s very weird because the first few streets out of the hotel are full of drug addicts & sex shops then all of a sudden you get to a very touristy area with lovely shops & restaurants. The junkies don’t even look at you or bother anyone they just go about their business doing you know what & strangely enough my friend & I didn’t really feel unsafe after a day lol we walked these streets frequently throughout the day.

The hotel gives off hipster vibes, very cool reception area with games and cool pieces of art, the rooms are small but very cozy. The bathrooms have a Big shower space and the showers are AMAZING like 10/10 in hotel showers.

Breakfast is good not a huge selection but definitely efficient and tasty.

The Christmas market was FAB.. it’s about a 15-20 min walk very easy to find but we rented electric scooters which got us there in about 10 mins so much fun.

Even with the area the hotels in I’d still recommend it.
