Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof and Hotel Europa

Frankfurt may not be the first city that comes to mind for a weekend citybreak in Europe, but it's worth considering give its excellent air and rail connections and day trip possibilities.  We spend the October 2013 Irish Bank Holiday weekend in Frankfurt and the surrounding area and found that it exceeded our expectations.  We stayed central at the Hotel Europa near the Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof.
Hotel Europa was just a five minute walk from the train station and was reasonably priced at less than 100 euro a night including breakfast.  The prices would have been higher had there been a convention in town but we were fortunate to be visiting on a non-convention weekend.
The stairwells featured a creative paint job...
...and chain mail around the windows!
Our room looked out on this quiet courtyard centered around a large tree that was bright yellow with autumn foliage.
So far, so good, Frankfurt!
