4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

We stayed for 3 nights. Excellent location, close to all amenities and on a very quiet side street. We checked in with a pleasant and helpful receptionist, housekeeping requests (extra pillows, towels) were met quickly and courteously. Decor a little dated and exterior decidedly stark, but we slept well and felt welcome. It's fairly basic, so suitable if you're on... More

After reading the reviews on here I was dreading going but I was happily surprised. The receptionist was really friendly and helpful upon arrival and my room was really big and roomy with a fridge and nice bathroom. I noticed no dirt and for the price this was good. I did not try breakfast but it was only 8 Euros.... More

3 members are staff were awful, rude and unhelpful. One girl tried to get me to change room at 9.30am on a Sunday, which I thought was inconsiderate and inconvenient. Noisy rooms, no Wi-fi, no info about buses to airport if leaving from Hann airport. Overall disappointing, I would not stay here again.

We arrived at the hotel to find construction going on at the front of the rather aesthetically unpleasing hotel. There was debris falling from the building and we had to wait for the workers to notice us before we could walk in the entrance. We checked in and found we had been allocated a room second from the front. We... More

Stayed here for one night, arrived at 4am due to problems, not open and had to call the number on the intercom. Got key ok but was told we could not use car park. Room was extremely hot and stuffy. A very noisy area surrounding also. Desk stuff in the morning were unhelpful and would not even lift their head... More

This is the third time we've stayed at the Mercator but it may well be the last. Good things: the location is great, the rooms are good value for money and it's very convenient for our needs when visiting Frankfurt. This may not be enough to make us return a fourth time, though. While the guy in the evening shift... More

I am always traveling on a budget. This hotel was a little distance from the city center but the room was ok and the price was reasonable. The breakfast was good and wifi worked. It was clean and I would consider staying there again.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Arrived on Sunday afternoon around 17.30., booked this hotel via a web site and requested a non smoking quiet room. Before being given my room key I was asked to pay ( most hotels I've stayed in take payment when checking out) I thought it was a bit strange,however I payed the extortionate... More

I visited the Mercator in order to visit relatives and go to the Frankfurt Christmas Market. The location was ideal as it was only a 5 minute walk to the main shopping area and markets. It is a basic hotel providing good value for money in Frankfurt. The rooms could do with an upgrade but at the price paid it... More

Close to shopping area and central Frankfurt. Easy to find but nearest S+U Bhan konstablewerch has many exits, head for the C&A and walk past the walden hotel and the mercator is easy to find. Put average for room because I think it could do with painting and decorating, clean and comfortable.
