Accommodation help for couple early 50's

Im booking my parents travels to europe in march, and they will be spending 2 nights in Frankfurt from the 11th March. They will be coming off the train from munich, then catching another train to cologne after their stay. My question is which area/hotels should i be looking at?? Ideally they will do sightseeing/shopping during the day and are more than capable of walking or catching public transport, however the key is that they are in a good/safe area and somewhere with restaurants nearby so they can go for dinner in the evenings. Budgeting around 200e a night. There seems to be a lot of hotels based around the central station, is this a good area?or should i be looking more around the zeil? Any advice would be wonderful. Im not sure where all the touristy stuff is in frankfurt.thanks

There is a big trade fair beginning the 12th, so this will make hotel prices skyrocket for that night.

Checking www.hrs.com there were a lot of hotels available, where the first night at a bargain rate evens out the high rate for the next night.

My recommendations, considering good central locations, reputation and price would be:

Adina apts., Lindner, Alexander am Zoo, Spener Haus, Mirimar Hotel, Hotel am Berg, and at a bit higher price, the Hilton, Flemings City Deluxe, and the Westin.

The tourist stuff and all the many museums are central city and along the river.

Alexander am Zoo is very nice. Huge breakfasts included in the room price and the neighborhood is great - it's also very close to Berger Strasse, which as a lot of good restaurants and the U7 U-bahn line which goes into the Zeil. Frankfurt is a relatively compact city and easy to get around via walking and public transport (as long as you can figure out the ticketing system). I would chose the area around the Zoo or the West End over the Zeil or the Hauptbahnhof.
