The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean. Breakfast is a good spread. The A.C. was amazing, though it did occasionally cut out in the middle of the night. There is a grocery store a block away and plenty of restaurants within walking distance. It's right by the zoo, which I actually don't recommend as it's small and... More

The Alexander am Zoo hotel is in a location with few other hotels. Although it is in the east end of Frankfurt, it is still close to many of the tourist sites in central Frankfurt. The tram is very close by but we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. As the name indicates, the hotel is close... More

I stayed here for 2 nights while attending some very important business meetings in Frankfurt. Off to a great start by being allowed an early check in at 11:00. Room was comfortable and spotlessly clean. Good sized desk to work from. Went for a stroll in the evening and was in the Zeil in about 10 mins. Bed was comfortable... More

A fantastic understated hotel. Nothing fancy, but everything presented and done extremely well. This hotel is walking distance to the city, offers wifi and does a great breakfast. Staff we helpful and accommodating. Small negative is that they don't do lunch or dinner, but there are shops and restaurants nearby.

I have stayed for 6 nights. The hotel is very clean and comfortable. The breakfast offers a good variety in a reasonably spacious room. The only real downside is not having a restaurant or room service in the building, important when you arrive tired and just want a quick sandwich before sleep. However, the hotel is a block away from... More
