There is the Hotel Victoria (near the Bahnhof, nearly on the way between "Zimt and Korriander" and the station). Price (including breakfast) would be 55€ for a single room.
Then there is the Manhatten Hotel (same conditions) for 60€ (single room) or 80€ (double room) (with WLan)

(Google Map, A=Station, B=Zimt&Korriander, C=Victoria, D=Manhatten)

I hope you are aware that the recommended hotels are in a rather "better not go" area of Frankfurt, especially when you return to the hotel later at night. As the area around the Hauptbahnhof is interesting by day but also a hang out for junkies, drug dealers and and it is Frankfurt's red light district...

Take a look at this one http://www.booking.com/hotel/de/hote...tml?aid=306227

or this - or search hotels near Konstabler Wache. The closest Hotel to the location would be Best Western Scala

HERE
AND
HERE MORE HOTELS

Hmm, I didn't realize it's that bad - been there only a couple of times at night.
But this is (essentially) true for nearly the complete area near the Hauptbahnhof (including the Hauptbahnhof itself).

I will have a second look.

Well, I like Best Western and it's not that expensive.

Anyway, do we book together or do we spread? What about a poll? /me loves polls!

Well, I could do the booking - but not the paying. (This makes separate bookings easier - everybody pays for himself)
But: YAY for polls!
