This hotel, located adjacent to the zoo and in a quiet neighborhood setting, was fairly priced and well run. It has a small, but pleasant lobby and a large lovely breakfast room. The junior suite was comfortable, decorated in blues as shown in hotel photos, with a small kitchenette, a small round table for eating, a love seat sofa and... More

This hotel is located in/near the heart of the city. The Frankfurt zoo is literally across the street, and a short walk to bus stop & train station. It is also in easy walking distance to several restaurants, cafes, and bars.

The brekfast buffet was excellent and offered many nice choices. Wifi in the room worked very well.The hotel is centrally located and within short walking distance to the city center and the U-Bahn... More

Really nice hotel. Great room, nice bathroom. Has a mini bar and free tea and coffee facilities which is very important in winter time. Breakfast was just fine. Location is a bit far from the shopping (pedestrian) zone in Zeil street, about 15-20 min walk, but the Zoo is just around the corner. ... but, it is unacceptable not to... More

Stayed here for two nights recently whilst on business. Relatively straight forward to find on a quiet street very close to the zoo. Parking is underground and does cost extra but it is secure and monitored. The man on reception was extremely efficient and spoke very good English. Wifi cost €5 a day but the quality was great in the... More

Having researched thoroughly on Tripadvisor in advance for accomodation on a Saturday night in Frankfurt city I was impressed with the reviews that previous guests had left regarding the Alexander am Zoo. I was not disappointed. I arrived late afternoon with my car's navigation system taking me straight to my destination on a quiet street behind the zoo. Parking didn't... More

I had never heard about this hotel and booked based on the tripadvisor evaluations. It was a good choice. The room is quite comfortable and they arranged two extra beds for the kids. Breakfast was not huge, but still very good. The best is the location, on a very calm street, far from the craziness of Frankfurt downtown, but easily... More

A very pleasant and comfortable hotel for a meeting at the Zoo. Not too far for a walk to the town centre either. WiFi kept dropping out in my room which was a pain, but no complaints about the hotel, its staff or breakfast.

So, Jan I booked into the Alexander am Zoo, to give us a base while visiting our son who has recently moved to Frankfurt. The whole experience was a positive one. Our every need was catered for without any problems. The room was comfortable, and we both slept well. Breakfast was exactly what you would expect from a German hotel,... More
