Am Zoo Hotel
Ranked #219 of 269 Hotels in Frankfurt
Reviewed November 7, 2012

We spend two nights at this Hotel and can recommend it if you’re visiting Frankfurt.
The room looked like that it has been recently redecorated; the bed and TV stand look modern the bathroom on the other hand looks like a bathroom of the 70s, all was yellow and a bit old. All was functioning correctly and clean but if you have such a nice room why not update the bathroom as well.

The hotel is near the city center and near the underground has its own car park (10 euro per
day). We didn’t have breakfast at this hotel.

A big con of this hotel is the WLAN, a wireless hotspot is available for 6 euros an hour. These days the internet should be free of charge is my opinion, we used the wireless of the Starbucks and for the rest of our stay we weren’t connected (a real vacation). The pc in the lobby can be used for internet access (free of charge) and in the city are a lot of internet shops.

The staff is friendly and helpful.

Tip: when visiting Germany bring your own pillow.

I can truly recommend this hotel for everyone visiting Frankfurt. The staff is excellent and well skilled.

The hotel is right next to the underground and it is only a few minutes walk from the city centre. There are many restaurants close to it, so it is not difficult to find the one you like. The building is a bit "old school" but the rooom was nice and clean. The area is quiet, so you can relax after an all day walk.

It has it's own car park which is a great advantage in the centre of Frankfurt.

You can have breakfast for 6,5 Euros which is I think a bit expensive, if you compare the price and the selection of the food. (I missed the vegetables).

The weakest point of the hotel is wlan. They say there is a hot spot in the hotel and you can use internet for 6 Euros per hour, but we could not reach it with our mobile devices. There is a pc in the lobby which can be used free of charge. Next to the hotel there is an "Internet shop" where you can print boarding passes and make video calls for reasonable prices.

Very friendly staff that spoke perfect Spanish. The room was very nice and clean, but the beds are very hard. We like to walk, so for us the location was great and walked everywhere from the hotel, but if you do not like to walk the metro is right outside the hotel. They have secured parking was very convenient for us as well.

The hotel is located just next to a U-Bahn station where you can take 2 different lines (U-6 and U-7). In addition, it's only a 10-minutes-walk to the city center (Zeil). The area is nice and quite.

The room and the building was OK, maybe a bit old, but clean. And the breakfast is a tasty buffet for only 6,50 € extra.
There is no Wifi for the guests, but there is a free computer available in reception. Surprisingly the receptionist in the morning was able to speak only very little English, but she was very nice and we didn't have any problem at all.

This hotel was a nice surprise. For 40€ i expected much less. But the staff is very friendly and helpful, the room was ok, the hotel next to a subway, nice bars and restaurants around, so nothing to complain for this price.and the room was large and the breakfast, again for this low price, excellent

Good *** hotel . The good located hotel not far from the heart of old town (Romer) and Zeil. Distance from Zeil is 10 minutes walk, distance from ZOO is 2 minutes walk, distance from U-Bahn station ZOO is 1 minutes walk, distance from Romer is 15 minutes walk. All distances are even with a pram. A soundproofing of rooms is a good.
A room is needing airing immediately after arrival.

We stayed here immediately upon flying into Frankfort from the US West Coast prior to embarking on a vacation in Germany. It was just the right spot for us. Knowing that hotel rooms in Europe are small, I was very happy to find a hotel that could accommodate 2 adults and 2 nine year olds, ie a Queen bed and 2 single beds in one room--this was a great find.

This hotel was situated about 15 minute taxi ride from the airport, perfectly located next to the tree-lined area of the Frankfurt Zoo, in a residential area, with some small family-owned restaurants supported by locals. More adventurous types could have taken the tube/metro from the airport. The excitement of downtown was an easy (flat), well marked 5-10 minute safe walk. Just far enough out to be quiet for sleeping, yet very accessible to the city. Lovely breakfast available in the morning. Great experience and affordable--for Europe.
