"Great location for access to the Frankfurt Messe."
Comfortable hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Strongly recommend the sixth floor Superior Rooms which include access to the lounge with breakfast and dinner included. Sixth floor also included unlimited minibar. Spa and exercise too on eighth floor is a great facility.
The hotel was selected for a weekend stay to visit the Christmas market, a trip to a football match with my son and generally see the sites of Frankfurt. Having made similar trips to Germany for the same reasons to Cologne, Berlin & Nuremburg I believe the most important factor for such a visit is the location of the hotel followed by the hotel itself. My son and I had no problems with the hotel apart from one small issue of soft pillows which were changed when requested. Our stay included a free continental breakfast and free Wi-Fi plus a superior twin bedded room which more than met our needs and was great value for money.
It's location however was an issue. It was great for train connections to the airport and for us the football stadium with the main line train station directly opposite the hotel but it was a good 15 minutes walk to the main shopping centre where the Christmas market was situated. Fortunately there were some good restaurants to eat on route which meant that we didn't have to walk all the way back into town again of a night time to eat. Meals were available in the hotel but like any hotel were pricey. The underground can be used to visit the centre of town and cannot be more than two stops. The area toward the railway station is a little bit seedy but not threatening in anyway. Would I use the hotel again. For the service it provided definitely. For location, I would probably look for something a little closer to the main centre area.
This is, by far, the best hotel in Frankfurt based on what I've seen. I stayed at the Linder Main Plaza, Grand Hotel Hesischer Hof, Radisson Blu and Mercure Messe. Out of all of them, this one truly feels like a five star hotel. It has an executive feel and great facilities and is in a great location.
The rooms are slightly small but average for Frankfurt or city standards. There is a large mini-fridge and amazing coffee-making facilities, i.e. good selection of teas. The bathrooms are very nice with a separate shower and the beds are incredibly comfortable. All rooms have a great view and there is a tram stop right outside and the Skyline shopping centre (which has a supermarket) is only 5 minutes walk away.
The breakfast on the executive club floor was a bit sparse and very cramped but the main breakfast was amazing including egg white omelettes which I have never seen before and oats cooked in water! The service there was incredible too. They even give you coffee to go!
One of the most appealing things to me about the hotel was the gym. All the other hotel gyms were ridiculously tiny but this one even has a squat rack and huge dumbbell rack. Gyms in Frankfurt are extremely pricey so I really appreciated this amazing gym!
I guess the only drawback is the cost! I went on a business trip so it was obviously worth it for me but the prices are extortionate. Also rooms generally don't include wi-fi or breakfast so costs do add up. Try and book in advance and hunt around.
