Although it's located in an nice area. This hotel is far from being a 3 star hotel. There is nobody in reception after 10. In fact you have a key to open the front door. The room hasn't a telephone inside.. yes..no kidding. I wouldn't recommend this hotel and it's not worth the price.

Stayed for 4 nights, basic, heat, no AC and very clean hotel, nice people. The location is perfect just a few minutes to the city center. Also you can go to the Frankfurt Zoo and the Main river in just 10 minutes.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Although the hotel looked a bit tired and tatty from the outside we were pleasantly surprised once we entered. We had booked and paid online and the check in was very quick, the guy on reception was very helpful and friendly, and advised us that if we wanted breakfast we could decide and pay the... More

Definetly no 4 stars hotel, but... And this is important. Very good value for money compared to the low budget hotels around Railway station. Clean rooms. Friendly service. Breakfast not included. Available @8€, ok. Be prepared to pay cash. Might go again. Not with my wife though... Strictly business.

This hotel appears to have had a minor refurb recently, bathroom looked quite new, very clean, did the job. Bedroom was fine, bed comfortable, a fair amount of noise from nearby trams & roads. Staff were helpful. Limited parking on site, but car park available locally.

Stayed in a 3 bed room. Little bit of a hike from the metro stop (~10 minutes). Not much to complain about except you can hear the person in the room above you if he's not following the sign in the bathroom (see attached picture). Breakfast is not free, but for 8 Euro, it's not too bad for a breakfast... More

This is another example of a very bare-bones type of conversion from former apartment house into a "hotel". Hotels are about sleeping, which i don't think the person responsible for the conversion was fully aware of. Tiled floors in the hallways and staircase and standard doors with no sound-proofing mean you wont need an alarm clock. Room was tiny, but... More

Mercator Hotel is a budget hotel located in the Nordend-West district. It is in between the Hessendenkmal and Friedberger Platz tram stops. The hotel is very clean and comfortable with a decent shower. The furnishing and bathroom is of a higher standard compared to some hotels I've stayed at in other European cities. I paid close to the same rate... More

This is a good hotel to stay in if you are in Frankfurt. The room rates are on the low side for a hotel of this quality. The hotel is about 10 mins walk from a main train station, Konstablerwache, where S and U trains connect. If you are landing in Frankfurt airport, you can reach this station direct from... More
