If you need a hotel near the zoo and simple and efficient this is the place. If you have a manual wheel chair probably is fine, but not a electrical one! I didn't get the breakfast because I choose to go to some bakeries near by.

The stay at Hotel Mercator was indeed not that bad - the price was relatively low and the staff was friendly. The only thing is - the staff is serviceminded and friendly in most places and you can also find other low-priced places to stay (in Frankfurt). When I came up to my room on the 2nd floor, it was...

Friendly staff, clean spacious room, very easy to find. Great value for money paid! It looks a bit meh from the outside, so I was expecting the same inside - was wrong^^ Simple but nice interior. You should book your parking space in advance though, the hotel has it's own private parking. If you prefer to park on the street...

The two staff people who man the front desk are very polite and helpful. All the rest is atrocious. The rooms are old and shabby. Old furniture and curtains. Absolutely depressing. Across the road is a lovely boutique hotel Villa Orange charging the same. But Mercator would not release my booking so I suffered to the end.

The first room we were offered was dirty and had two single beds - not what we'd booked. Plus we were asked to pay €195 in advance - not the €175 that booking.com had offered. Man at reception was very helpful. Offered us another room. Exhausted, we took it. Bed was like a kit bed, no proper pillows and just...

Although it's located in an nice area. This hotel is far from being a 3 star hotel. There is nobody in reception after 10. In fact you have a key to open the front door. The room hasn't a telephone inside.. yes..no kidding. I wouldn't recommend this hotel and it's not worth the price.

Stayed for 4 nights, basic, heat, no AC and very clean hotel, nice people. The location is perfect just a few minutes to the city center. Also you can go to the Frankfurt Zoo and the Main river in just 10 minutes.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Although the hotel looked a bit tired and tatty from the outside we were pleasantly surprised once we entered. We had booked and paid online and the check in was very quick, the guy on reception was very helpful and friendly, and advised us that if we wanted breakfast we could decide and pay the...

Definetly no 4 stars hotel, but... And this is important. Very good value for money compared to the low budget hotels around Railway station. Clean rooms. Friendly service. Breakfast not included. Available @8€, ok. Be prepared to pay cash. Might go again. Not with my wife though... Strictly business.

This hotel appears to have had a minor refurb recently, bathroom looked quite new, very clean, did the job. Bedroom was fine, bed comfortable, a fair amount of noise from nearby trams & roads. Staff were helpful. Limited parking on site, but car park available locally.
