Very satisfied by our stay. Room was spacious, bed was very comfortable. Room was very clean. Breakfast was best of all, amazing!! Location was very central, close to main sites by subway, in a nice quiet residential area. You can also borrow DVDs from the lobby and they give you a DVD player, for those rainy days if you wanna stay in. Excellent choice overall.

Lovely neighbourhood. Next to the zoo. Sauna in the basement. Friendly staff, helping us with plotting on the map, the things we were looking for. Breakfast buffet with fresh fruit. Windows of the room can be opened. Very quiet.

My wife and I had an overnight stay in Frankfurt and thought were might be taking a bit of a chance with the Alexander am Zoo. After making our way from Frankfurt Airport by subway to the main station and then changing subway routes to the suburbs, it was only a short walk to the hotel. While we were a bit concerned at being in what appeard to be average suburb, the hotel turned out to be a real surprise. Excellent service on arrival and an outstanding room with all the usual appointments. Also, a great breakfast option folded into the cost. Overall, a very good (+) hotel. Only issue is that some may be a little challegned getting to it if you can't easily navigate the various subway connections, as it is a little way out from the city centre.

Great breakfast, great location, walking distance to old town. Staff were wonderful and helpful. Room was clean, comfortable and quiet. After a long flight it was exactly what we needed. Our room was ready so we were allowed to checkin allowing for a quick catch up snnoze before sightseeing. This was so much appreciated. Checkin and checkout, quick and efficient. Would definately recommend this hotel.

I was travelling solo on a business trip recently and chose this hotel primarily for its location. I'd heard some mixed reviews about hotels in the central area of Frankfurt near the main train station and decided that I would rather be in a less lively area of town. This hotel fitted perfectly - it is a 10-15 minute walk to the Zoo and about 30 minutes to walk into the main centre of town near the Zeil. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet (it's in a residential area, lots of apartment blocks around it) - granted it is not the trendiest place to be, but if that is what you're looking for head back to the area near to the train station. The breakfast was very good and included in the room. The 5 Euro charge for WIFI isn't ideal, however it is for a 24 hour period (and I've had to pay more in other places). The major downside is the cancellation policy as it isn't very flexible (be sure before you book), however this is very common for hotels in Frankfurt, mainly driven by the amount of trade fairs that are continually running throughout the year. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout my stay. There isn't a restaurant in the hotel, but there are a few nearby that are nice. I would definitely stay here again.

I booked this hotel through Booking.com mainly for its central location and access to the Frankfurt Zoo as we had our gorgeous Grandaughter with us for a change, She absolutely loved the place and wants to return again and again.
The staff made a fuss over her at breakfast, with her doll "Miss Dolly Brown" and they kept coming over during breakfast to smile at her proud parenting skills:-) She loved the little balcony window and the comfortable room with her own little divan (Provided Free).
The Zoo was a little disappointing as there was so much building work surrounding the outside, but still worth a visit. Giraffes, a Rhino, Camels & Seals etc, not animals you see every day.
I could not fault a thing we stayed twice once en-route to Bavaria and once returning. Really top drawer staff, nicely decorated rooms, good location you can walk into the city or use the subway. See you next time for sure.

Room Tip: The only thing I would mention is the underground parking has sloping parking spaces, if you have a...

This hotel was built in the 90's and has stayed more or less the same, ever since.
The breakfast buffet is excellent and the rooms are spacious.

Paying 5 euros for internet access is not a plus.
Parking for 14 euros is too expensive.

I am surprised that this hotel has a 4 stars rating.
For German standards, I would expect 3 stars.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view at the local zoo.
