The hotel is a 15-20 minute taxi ride from Frankfurt Airport and it is right next door to a tram stop (It is the last stop on the line, so it is hard to get lost!). Despite the name the hotel is not particularly close to the Messe Frankfurt Exhibition Centre so if that is why you are in Frankfurt your choices are a 30-40 minute brisk walk or take the tram to get to the Messe (Takes ~15 min). The traffic was very heavy in Frankfurt when I was there so a taxi is probably not a great option.
The rooms are as you would expect for the class and type of hotel (basic, but warm and comfortable) but I was surprised by how limited the storage space for clothes is in the room. The rooms have showers but no bath so if you want a soak after standing up all day at an exhibition then you are out of luck! - but this is par for the course with this class of hotel and my only REAL complaint is that I could hear the elevators rumbling at night which disturbed my sleep a little. I did complain at the time but the hotel was full so I was unable to move rooms.
The bar and restaurant were pleasant and breakfast was good.
