“Centrally located family hotel”
Reviewed January 3, 2011

We stayed at the Alexander for a week in December. It's a cozy family hotel that we had chosen several times before. We like the scrumptuous breakfast buffet and the hotel's superb location: Two subway stops from Frankfurt's downtown shopping area (Zeil) and just a five minute walk to Berger Strasse, which is the neighborhood's main street, with many nice restaurants and shops. The hotel is quite affordable and a good value overall. But our twin beds (upon our early monring arrival, the hotel did not give us the queen bed we had requested) were too small, and the rooms felt a bit stuffy when the radiator was brimming (it was cold in Frankfurt!!). But we would recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a nice and affordable place to stay in Frankfurt.

In a quiet area near the zoo. Subway and tram are close by. Unusual for 4 stars: no restaurant, not even a bar! The basement piano bar has been closed for a long time. Otherwise everything was ok: Big, modern room, new and clean bathroom, quiet, clean, friendly staff.

My parents and I stayed here 1 night at the end of our 6 week holiday. It is a great hotel, the rooms are very clean and comfortable. The hotel location is about 20 minute drive from the airport and walking distance to the Zoo. The staff are very friendly and helpful and suggested a great little restaurant for dinner - (the Italian restaurant at the end of the street) as there is no restaurant at the hotel. This restaurant was fantastic, the staff were great, the restaurant was full and seemed to be very popular. We would definately recommend this hotel.

Nice atmosphere, clean & good sized rooms (imagine an upscale BW style), located in a quiet residential area, yet easy to get to the city centre, rich breakfast buffet – all in all, a very good venue in [otherwise not so touristic friendly] FRK.

After our stay I decided it was worth a review. We only had one day in Frankfurt and were catching a plane the next afternoon. We booked a standard room which can with a 'playpen - like' cot free of charge that our 5 yrs daughter was happy to sleep in. Well stocked mini-bar, sparkling clean room & bathroom - like new, great bed and pillows, black out curtains, free DVD player and movies to borrow, terrific breakfast buffet included in room price (variety and friendly service), great front desk ladies to answer questions and help out. The only negative was we couldn't connect our laptop to the 'Cloud' wifi service in the room. The clerk let us use the computer at the front desk at no charge.

I've stayed in this hotel both alone on business and with family (2 children) three times now. It's a great way to have a day of fun in Frankfurt before a 11-14 hour flight across the Atlantic. We love the location right next to the zoo (200 yards down Waldschmidtstrasse is the less crowded back entrance to the zoo). Several U-Bahn stations are nearby (the closest is Habsburgerstrasse), so you can quickly get to downtown, and 3 blocks away is the lively Berger Strasse with lots of restaurants, cafes, and shops. The hotel staff is extremely nice. They recognize us every time we show up, and once we even got an unexpected free upgrade to the Alexander Suite, which was wonderful. On my suggestion, Herr Franke made sure that the hotel now carries a small selection of gluten-free bread and Früchte-Muesli (oatmeal with dried fruits) for breakfast to accommodate my family's food allergy. When I came for my third stay, booking online, he sent me a personal email to let me know I didn't have to bring my own bread this time. I enthusiastically recommend this hotel and look forward to staying there again the next time I am in Germany.

Positive: very spacious rooms and bathrooms. Breakfast was fine.
Negative: water temperature in the shower was oscillating strongly: from very cold to very hot, making it very uncomfortable. Also, the system of ventilation in the bathroom is not optimal, that is, when someone else has ventilation on, you hear an unpleasant noise in your room.
Location is average: too far to walk to the city center, but maybe 3 stops by metro.
