Dipping into the HotelChatter Flickr Pool today we found this shot of the Le Meridiend Parkhotel Frankfurt which we admit caught our eye because of the interesting, non-fugly carpeting. But also a bonus was this review from Flickr member Spencer D Allen who writes:

Very artsy hotel, very unique. There are 2 towers, one with very modern (almost W hotel style) decor, the other side with a much more sophistocated [sic]and almost old world luxury. this room is from the old world tower.

The location is very unique, right near the red light district.... it's not for kids. It definitely proves the stereotype of Frankfurt being boring very, very wrong.

We're intrigued already. And we have to say that room is considered part of the "old world tower" but it looks a lot newer than some new hotels we've seen lately. Of course, there could always be some clunky armoire hiding a chunky TV that we just can't see in this shot.

Considering the Le Meridien for your next trip to the exotic Frankfurt? Room rates start at 145 Euros for the hotel's historic wing. The modern design rooms are bumped up to 225 Euros. Check those rooms out here.

Spencer's definitely right: the hotel is red light district-adjacent, and literally a block from the huge main train station. BUT, it is also on a fairly quiet, leafy, one-block street, so the riff-raff doesn't usually seem to spill over toward the hotel. Very convenient location in the city for seeing some of the museums along the river bank.
