The NH Hotel Messe was a perfect hotel for us during our recent six-night stay over the holidays. We have stayed at (and reviewed) several Frankfurt hotels, given our family ties here and the convenient flight connections at Frankfurt airport, and would rate the NH Messe among the top.
The hotel is a bit away from the core of town and mainly caters to visitors of the various trade fairs. But outside the peak trade fair periods, very good deals can be had. In our case, the nightly rate was highly competitive; a truly good deal (we paid Euro 79 per night). On the other hand, breakfast while good is way overpriced (at Euro 20 per person)--maybe affordable to a business traveler but certainly not for a leisure stay. Given our long stay, we were able to negotiate getting breakfast at half this price. But the hotel may not always be amenable to such a deal. There are not too many cafes nearby, but a ten-minute walk could yield some interesting options (e.g., Cafe Laumer on Bockenheimer Landstrasse, a Frankfurt institution).
Our room was very comfy and spotless, helped by a nice hardwood floor and an elegant mix of tiles and wood in the bathroom. We adored the reading lights above the bed; they were like a medieval baldachin. The room was very quiet, and the soft bed lines and hard mattress ensured a good-nights sleep.
Finally, coming back to the location: subway line U4 provides frequent service to the main train station (1 stop), the historic core (3 stops), and the main shopping street (4 stops). It also links the hotel to the quaint neighborhoods of Bornheim and Bockenheim, and the lively Berger Strasse, with tons of excellent and very affordable restaurants and bars. There also are good tram and bus connections to other parts of town. A day pass is a very good deal. But as mentioned above, apart from very few restaurants in some of the side streets, the area around the hotel is pretty quiet.
