“Two-tone shower experience!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

Flemings are generally a reliable choice for no-frills business trips and having stayed at the Hamburger Allee branch in Frankfurt I expected the Messe version to be up to the same standard. Certainly the welcome of the staff, their helpful and efficient approach at check-in, at the bar and in the restaurant was every bit as good as before. The rooms are nothing fancy or luxurious but they have all you need for a business overnight. The beds are comfortable, the wi-fi works very well and generally the facilities meet most reasonable expectations.

However this was the first time I have ever experienced what I can only describe as a two-tone shower! Coming from the centre was good hot water, but around the edge of the shower-rose the temperature was decidedly chilly - and this was the case both when I arrived and was changing for the evening and the next morning before breakfast.

My room was also out on the landing rather than behind the firedoors in the corridor and so I got quite a lot of noise from the elevator and from the hard floor surfaces as other guests came and went - plus quite a strong drain smell coming up from somewhere!

So sadly despite the excellent breakfast, the good location close to Frankfurt's enormous showground this branch of Flemings will be off my booking list for a return visit.

Dear Sue-and-Steve-Ascot,

We thank you that you took time to write us your feedback about your stay.
It is really important for us that you let us know your experiences in our house.

Thank you also for your compliments to our staff, which we are happy to share.

Your statement concerning our showers is new for us but of course we will
immediately investigate. Because you are right that you should expect a shower
with uniform water temperature in our house.

We feel really sorry that you have taken us off your booking list.
We also do have silent rooms in our house which you can book.

We would be delighted if you could give us a second change!

Kind regards

i.V. Nina Dorothee Hühner

I have been staying at this Fleming's every January for the last 5-6 years for a large trade fair at the Messe Frankfurt.
The good things-
The service is exquisite. From the bartenders to the girls that check you in at the desk. Everyone is friendly, prompt and professional and many seem to have been here for many years as I see the same faces all the time.
The location is excellent if you are attending a trade fair at the Messe Frankfurt. 10-15 minute easy walk. Several good restaurants in a short walk away or not far from the Hauptwasche which is filled with cafes and shops.
Good breakfast each morning with lots of choices and excellent coffee.
The bad things-
The mattresses are wrapped in plastic to prevent any damage which tends to make you sweat like a hog in July during the night despite how cool the room is.
If you have a room facing the main intersection you are on, traffic is noisy and there is a fire station down the street that sends trucks with blaring sirens past your window during the night.
the prices have certainly gone up a lot over the years which I know coincide with trade fairs but come one, upwards of $350 to $400 a night? Not worth that.
The shower is a but strange being a glass box in your room with little privacy if you are sharing a room.

Overall, this is a good hotel but it can cost you and for those not used to European style hotel rooms, it may take a little getting used to.

This is the second time we have been at this hotel and it will be on our permenant list for Frankfurt. Its a 2 minute walk from the train station. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and trendy. The breakfast is awesome and the staff are super nice and attentive.

Room Tip: Get one down the hall as the front rooms (although much bigger) are noisy from street traffic.

The hotel is good in many ways. The rooms are aesthetically pleasing, spacious, and the bathrooms are remodeled. It is also 2 blocks from the Frankfurt Train Station. But that is also the problem. The hotel is at the intersection of the two of the busiest streets in Frankfurt if not all of Germany. Even though I was on the 4th floor, the street noise was ferocious. All night long it was constant horn honking, police and ambulance sirens. The Tram also runs 5 feet in front of the building starting sometime about 5 or 6 am. I think I slept about an hour. Which is just unacceptable when the basic functionality of a hotel is to give you a place to sleep.

Unless they greatly improve their soundproofing, it just isn't worth staying here.

Brilliant food for Breakfast, restfully slept on a comfortable bed and >€10 taxi to the centre of the world's largest Christmas Markets. Sauna wasn't working, but pleasant staff and nice cocktails made up for it. Will stay at Flemings again if in Frankfurt.

Good location next to main train station. One of the better choices in that area. Be aware, though, that the area is not totally safe at night (I was robed once this year).

Efficient service, but late at night checkin can be staffed with newbies who only know the basics and are not trained to do advanced tasks (such as changing a billing address).

Cleanliness gets "average" because of annoying smell in staircase.

Otherwise recommended.

A nice business hotel with very good rooms. Rooms have a transparent glass walled shower openly visible from the rest of the room. So it seemed more of honeymoon room than a twin sharing business room. Fortunately I stayed solo :) Average breakfast. A very friendly front office staff, made me feel very welcome. Proximity to main train station is very convenient. I didn't like the main entrance which didn't seem to have a ramp for the people who may need this access.
