The rooms were of small/average size and clean. The hotel provides an underground parking with need of an access card, which is nice security. The breakfast was very good every morning and had an excellent selection and variety of food - from yogurt and fresh fruit, to eggs, and cheese.

This family hotel is located about 15' by taxi to the railway station. We had a 3 day meeting and all was well organized. The room was comfortable, big and clean. The shower worked well and had plenty of hot water. Excellent breakfast buffet.

Had a great stay at this hotel! It was clean, had helpful staff, and its location was convenient and peaceful. The view of the greenery we had from the window in our room added to the beauty. The breakfast buffet was pretty rich in selection. I would definitely consider staying in this hotel again!

It's my 4th or 5th time staying in this hotel, and I love the neighborhood and how easy it is to get to the center by metro or on foot. The staff is very nice and attentive(though there is no one to be found at the desk after 01:00), even more so than other times that I was there. The... More

We had another visit in German Christmas Markets, this time in Frankfurt. Alexander am Zoo is a perfect choice if you prefer a hotel in a quiet peaceful area. It is only 20 minutes walk to centrum of Frankfurt's busiest shopping area, Ziel, and a couple more minutes more to Rathaus. The hotel is very nice, the suite we had... More

We stayed for two nights here for the Christmas Market and really enjoyed it. I liked the quiet location on a residential street. Nothing fancy but perfectly comfortable and the staff are pleasant. The room was decently sized and very clean. Service was friendly and flexible - we arrived early and they had no problem with letting us check in... More

We sayed in this Hotel for three nights and enjoyed every thing. The room ( standard room ) was very spacious , not like the most of the city hotels. Very clean, quiet and the location was ideal for going shopping on the "Zeil". Breakfast was standard, nothing to exiting but a good atmosphere. The parking was a bit problematic... More

this is our companie's new choice in Frankfurt. The hotel is well located - not far from the center and in a very quite area. The rooms are wide enough and the services are good. I believe that the price/value relation is a very good one. Breakfast is excellent (as in most German Hotels).

We stayed here for three nights in September 2013. We decided to choose the hotel primarily because we wanted a hotel in the centre of Frankfurt, but not near the Hauptbahnhof after having read the reviews elsewhere on Tripadvisor. This hotel is very well situated in a quiet, leafy area next to the Zoo. It is easily accessible, with a... More
