Parkhotel Am Taunus
Reviewed December 9, 2013

While this hotel is 'out-of-the-way' for someone looking for accommodation in Frankfurt, it was ideal for me being literally across the street from where I needed to be. My room was large, clean and comfortable. I was surprised at the cost for the wi-fi. Breakfast in the morning was very good.

The reception was efficient and friendly. The room is large, well equipped and clean. Style might not be to everyones taste. The bar is in the basement and not for the claustrophobic. A big disappointment is that wifi has to be paid for. Not much, but still...

I was in this hotel for a business seminar. From colleagues that get a room in the old building (the hotel consist of two of them), I heard they were small and awfull. I was luckily placed in the new part and enjoyed a quite comfortable room with nice forest views. Unfortunately, as often in Germany, king/queen size beds in this hotel have two matresses, which destroyed my sleep comfort. The bathroom is functional , but no ammenities at all (I never ever will understand the miseriliness of German hotel managers with bathroom ammenities!). The service is ok, but seems not really motivated. And: If you are considering to book this hotel for a seminar: BEWARE! Food is bad and the coffe brakes miserable.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new building, the rooms in the old one are terrible. Do not accept a room with...

rooms are nice, food is good and great location if you need to do your morning jogging (close to the woods with lots of tracks).
They also rent appartments by the month, and it is worth it.
I would definitely recommend the hotel if you travel to Oberursel.

I don't know why I went out a Little furter from the city, but it was absolutely worth it. Great service, fantastic natural environment around the Feldberg. Nice traditional and well refurbished rooms. Traditional food!

I stayed in Parkhotel am Taunus for one night for a business meeting. It is a nice hotel. My room was big enough, very clean and comfortable. The personnel was very competent, friendly and ready to help. Would recommend to everybody.

This hotel is quite far from the city center but close to the U-Bahn to connect to the S-Bahn into the city center. It is also located very close to Frankfurt International School which is the reason I was staying here. The bed was very small and like Rolfbusk, brought be back to my university dormitory days! The bed was in the middle of the room with the sink also in the room and a separate closet door for the toilet and then the shower. The shower head did not want to stay in place with the pressure from the water and at one point (even though I minimized the pressure) it sprayed uncontrollably all over the room. Despite the cleanliness of the room, I had a hard time sleeping with the loud noise from upstairs. The person was just walking around but it caused ridiculous noise and vibrating of the mirror that was above the sink (just a large plank mirror). The room did have a safe though which was convenient and the breakfast that was included was average with the exception of the delicious, fresh mini-croissants! I don't think I would stay here again if I were given a choice and the only main convenience is the proximity to FIS for tournaments or other school events.

Room Tip: The top floor so you don't hear the stomping above you and also away from the main street as the...
