“Good AC and very close to the main station”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2011

I will start by saying that I have never really enjoyed staying in Frankfurt and would recommend anyone arriving at the airport to consider nearby cities such as Mainz, if however you are in town on business or simply want the comfort a trains to the airport every 12 minutes or so this is not a bad place to stay. You can certainly walk here from the station, in fact you almost have to as the cabs don't seem happy to take you the 200 meters or so from the station to the hotel, and it is only three blocks from the river. That said this is not a pretty area of town and I have never found a good place to eat less than a ten minute walk from the hotel.

I have never stayed in the old historic part that you see on the web site having always been upgraded to the new part of the hotel. When I was here the weekend of the 16th the hotel was somewhat full - the football match - and once again I found myself on the 8th floor of the new building. The rooms are functional and the AC works far better than most of the hotels I have stayed at in Germany. That said they are also without any charm though they do substitute by providing an iron and ironing board. Meals are fairly good though overpriced as is any service provided in the business center.

If you want a hotel in Frankfurt close to the station this is your best bet as everything works and the staff are nice and helpful. They of course can help the fact that the location around the station lacks good dinning spots and beauty nor are they responsible for the jetsons decor of the hotel.

As I said at the start I am not a fan of Frankfurt, except for business, as its old town is something of a tourist trap and it business center is all highrise towers similar to what one would see any Atlanta or Dallas - actually I think but of those American cities have more charm.

Dear „jsthouston“

Thank you for sharing your impressions about Frankfurt and our Hotel with the tripadvisor community. It is nice to hear, that your overall experience was positive and that the service provided by our staff met your expectations. Frankfurt is indeed a business city and the busy area in which we are located is not to everybody’s liking, considering the central site we are still in a quite position right at the idyllic Wiesenhüttensquare. Concerning the pricing in our restaurant and business center, this compares to other hotels in Frankfurt and the Le Méridien Brand.

Dear „jsthouston“, should your travel plans bring you back to Frankfurt, it would be our pleasure to welcome you back to the Le Méridien Parkhotel Frankfurt.

With kind regards,

Excellent location within a couple minutes walk to central train station. Reception and restaurant staff were excellent. The lunch buffet was great and convenient. Internet charge is €19 for 24hrs but free use of business centre with printer and wifi. I would stay at this hotel again for business and pleasure.

I actually signed up for trip advisor to write this review. Based on other reviews of this hotel, it is clear that those who are happy with it are those who appreciate small business hotels. Le Meridien Frankfurt is just that...a business hotel with rooms the size of and luxurious as most hostels I have stayed in for a third of the price. My room was so small I could not put my suitcase on the floor and open the bathroom door at the same time. Upon questioning the staff about the possibility of a room change, I was met with rude attitudes and stares I can only interpret as "we don't care you rude,complaining American". Redeeming qualities: good breakfast buffet and large lobby and business center. Needless to say, I will not be back.

*Stayed 2 nights into Le Meridien Frankurt, if you want a business hotel, that's the one. I was there for leisure, so there was no swimming pool, around 20 euros for internet at the business center, the breakfast buffet at the restaurant was great. The concierge was friendly. Had a free basket of fruits as a welcome into my room.

* 2 minutes walk from the Frankfurt (Main) Hauptbahnhof

* 10/15 minutes walk to Hauptwache + Old Frankfurt

Dear “JulienF”

Thank you so much for your compliments and the very positive feedback about our hotel and about mentioning our convenient location near the exhibition ground and the city centre. We also appreciate the beautiful pictures you have taken of our hotel and room.

Your commendation is a most welcome motivation. We will do our best to keep up our personal service. Be assured that I will forward your comments to our staff; there is no better way to thank them as by a positive guest feedback.

Unfortunately, we do not have the spa to include a swiming poll in our property, but for your next stay we are able to recommend you good in door pools, if you wish.

We hope you will come back soon. It will be a great pleasure for us to see you in the near future.

With Kind Regards,

Pleasant envirnonment. Friendly and efficinet staff. Just in time providences and arrangements, when needed. It's just a couple of steps to feel like being at home. A train station nearby makes the hotel a perfect place to be a one-day trips base.

I stayed here for a corporate meeting in June 2011. The staff were friendly and the hotel ambiance very pleasant, with unusual use of visual and audio artwork in the elevators. The room was neat and modern in design. The restaurant served buffet breakfast and buffet lunch with a good selection of foods served by a jovial chef. The meeting room and facilities were good and the cocktail bar was very inviting, serving bar food also. The hotel is only a 5 minute stroll from the River Main and then a pleasant 15 minute walk to the old town square.
The only issue I had with the hotel was the wifi access, which failed and needed to be reset. I would also have expected this to have been free in the reception area at least, but all internet access, including the use of the hotel PC to print boarding cards, has to be paid for, which was disappointing.
Otherwise, the hotel is highly recommended.

it is a delight to hear about your recent stay in our hotel and positive comments. Thank you for sharing those with us and the tripadvisor community.

This proved to be an attractive choice for a post-flight overnight decompressing in Frankfurt - small, quiet, and pleasant, very central to both public transit and a walk down to the riverfront and the cafes, and reasonably priced when booked well in advance.
