While Pure's fitness offerings don't excite us too much, the hotel's location near the train station, coupled with its modern and architecturally significant characteristics, may entice travelers for a one night stay. For anything longer, we suggest one of our other recommendations. We most certainly would not stay here for a rate above €150E/night.
Pure is a modern and swanky boutique hotel that sits in stark contrast to the other old and rundown neighboring buildings. It's a very dark walk from the train station to the front doors if arriving during the night. An adjacent pizza café is convenient for a simple bite and one of Frankfurt's few bike shops does business a block away but, alas, no rentals. All rooms are an example of contrast with white walls, curtains, bedding, and dark hardwood floors and headboards. Quarters are cozy, typical for European properties, but are air conditioned and set up with free WiFi access and 20-inch LCD televisions. A few rooms even have balconies and an outdoor chair. High ceilings and large windows help the spatially challenged rooms feel more open and airy. Request a higher floor room (4th) away from the street for a better chance at a quiet overnight.
Pure's basement gym is nothing to write home about. It's tiny, dark and vapid, but at least the Technogym equipment inside is stellar: one recumbent bike, one treadmill and one elliptical. A Concept 2 rowing machine is another cardio workout alternative, nice touch. Strength options are limited with a 5-25 lbs. dumbbell set. There's an old school gym around the corner, but non-members are not allowed inside. The gym is fitting for the hotel, satisfying only for one night/one workout.
