“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

I stayed at the Hessicher Hof for two nights during a business trip and throughly enjoyed my stay.

The staff where extremely courteous and genuinely helpful. At the end of a long first day I was taken to my room (standard single) and was really impressed by how nice the room was: spacious, very clean and a fantastic bathroom. Even the complimentary mini-bar was surprising touch, so many hotels use this as a way to draw yet more money from the weary traveler.

Breakfast in the morning was superb! It is true the Germans do eat extremely well. Discrete staff waiting on your every need, a wonderful buffet to choose from and freshly cooked eggs to help set you up for a busy day.

I found Jimmy's bar very relaxing with a subtle jazz pianist in the background. The only disappointing thing was the acceptance of smoking in such a lovely intimate bar.

Overall I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting comfortable stay in Frankfurt.

We stayed at this very nice hotel close to Frankfurter Messe. We went to a show at the Festhalle with Swedish House Mafia. The Hotel is centrally located with , trams and subway only a few meters away. The staff was very friendly and offered excellent service The house restaurant is very good and offers a nice breakfast buffet. One of my best hotel experiences.

Staff is super courteous. I felt very welcome. Room looked like new. My only complaint is that the bellman did not meet me at my cab so had to haul bags up the front steps. Tub has no shower curtain or glass wall. Room has fresh fruit and refreshments. Overall seems very nice. It could be nearly 5 star except for my nit picking. I do recommend this hotel. I would stay here again.

This is a charming hotel in all respects. The staff are very welcoming and helpful, the rooms are large, comfortable and very well-appointed and the food in the restaurant is good and reasonably priced.

Located close tothebusiness district, this hotel offers a pleasant change from corporate hotels. The rooms are charming and a little quirky, offering lots of space and comfort and all the facilities one could wish for. The public areas are equally comfortable, with plenty of places to relax and attentive, but not intrusive, service from the staff.

The restaurant offers a wide choice of menus as well as a la carte - the "business" menu was good value at 45 Euro, including wine,water and coffee and the food was tasty and well presented.

I can really find no fault! A lovely place to stay.

I stayed at this hotel in connection with a business trip to Frankfurt. My hosts had given me a budget and had selected another hotel but I did a bit of searching online and found the Hessischer Hof was in the same area as my other option. By booking a few weeks in advance I was able to get an Executive Room at a discounted price and I have to say this was one of the largest and best appointed rooms I have ever stayed in more than 25 years of travel. Beyond the king size bed and usual amenities like fruit bowl and sparkling that are expected at this level of hotel, was a myriad of additional features like complimentary drink in the bar, shoe shine, wide range of magazines, free internet and movies and so on. I arrived late in the afternoon and did not venture in the surrounding area except when I was taken to dinner so I cannot comment except to say it is near the Messe so it is well located if you have business in the area. It is a fair walk from the Hbf so keep that in mind if you have a significant amount of luggage (I walked pulling two bags). The only point to keep in mind is the Executive Rooms are at the back of the hotel (great view from my room) but you have to go down and up stairs and past the famous bar (which I did not sample). Overall a great experience with friendly and helpful staff and a spectacular and memorable room.

This was a return trip to the hotel for a fair at the Messes in Frankfurt. I stayed in an executive room which is very spacious. The staff greet you by name and the dining room is excellent. Have the set price 3 course meal including wine for Euro45, great value

Room Tip: Choose the executive rooms, more expensive but good size and overlook a quiet street

I was stranded in Frankfurt with out my travel partner. All of our additional reservations were in her name including our rental car to get out of town. I ended spending about 24 hours in Frankfurt and found this hotel on hotels.com in the airport. I was so pleased with my find. The hotel is lovely and so is the staff. I couldn't have been happier.
