With its many attractions both in and around the city, it isn't hard to see why many choose to visit Frankfurt, Germany. Over a quarter of the city's population is made up of foreigners, giving Frankfurt one of the more cosmopolitan cities in Germany. The city thrives on both culture and business, but has a very definite relaxed atmosphere which welcomes visitors with open arms.
Those looking for Frankfurt hotels will have a fairly impressive selection of accommodations to choose from. The standard Frankfurt hotels are available of course. Each of these varies in quality and rates. However, there is an enchanting option that some might not initially think to try: the bed and breakfast Frankfurt.
The term bed and breakfast originated in England, but Germany carries on the tradition quite nicely. These bed and breakfasts turn the paradigm of the typical Frankfurt hotels on its head. Instead of a large building full of identical--or near identical--rooms, the bed and breakfast Frankfurt is generally a country inn or even a German family's home. They are typically very affordable and offer an incredible opportunity to get to know the German people in addition to the German country by giving you a much more personal experience. There are quite a few bed and breakfasts located around Frankfurt, but you probably won't find any within the city itself. The essence of the bed and breakfast Frankfurt is its quaint, country style and the magic of that would not work inside a city. The historic nature varies from place to place. As one might expect, a local styled breakfast is usually offered, but if you aren't sure, just ask your host.
Standing in stark contrast to the small bed and breakfasts is the Le Meridian Park Hotel Frankfurt. Located right in the heart of the city, near the banking and business center, the Le Meridian's history dates back to the beginning of the 20th century when it was built in 1905. Amazingly enough this was one of the Frankfurt hotels that did not suffer any damage during World War II. As a result, the US forces occupied the building and used it as headquarters for the press corps for twelve years. During the 1950s, the hotel was reopened and managed as a family business for a decade. During the 1990s, the Le Meridian Park Hotel Frankfurt underwent extensive renovations and over a hundred rooms were completely refurbished. These new rooms feature incredible comfort with Maplewood furnishings, plasma televisions, and every amenity that the heart desires. What's particularly striking about the Le Meridian Park Hotel Frankfurt is that the rooms are not mere clones of each other. Each is individually equipped, assuring a different aesthetic no matter how many times you visit.
