“Good, quality hotel, moderate price on weekends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

EUR 70 (weekends) / EUR 105 (weekdays) + EUR 16 per person for "European" breakfast.

Highlights:
- Breakfast - scrambled or boiled eggs, bacon, 3-4 cold meat cuts, 3-4 cheeses, yogurt, cold cereals, fruit preserves, jam, 3-4 breads and bread rolls, fresh fruit,
- 3-4 German and 1 English language newspapers
- a PC with free internet in the lobby
- Large enough elevator (important if you ever stayed in a European hotel with an elevator the size of a bird house)
- Very quiet rooms (except for doors slamming if you have close neighbors). Very quiet street and neighborhood
- Currently has construction in the hotel so daytime can have severe construction noise
- Pizza cafe on the corner
- 40 min to airport on U-Bahn/S-Bahn. About 300 yards from Habsburgerallee U7 line (Or a bit more from the Zoo U7/U6 line). Look for the U-Bahn entrance with "Aufzug" (Elevator) sign if you carry luggage.

This family hotel is located about 15' by taxi to the railway station. We had a 3 day meeting and all was well organized. The room was comfortable, big and clean. The shower worked well and had plenty of hot water. Excellent breakfast buffet.

Room Tip: My Room was 311 with a nice big window.

Had a great stay at this hotel! It was clean, had helpful staff, and its location was convenient and peaceful. The view of the greenery we had from the window in our room added to the beauty. The breakfast buffet was pretty rich in selection. I would definitely consider staying in this hotel again!

It's my 4th or 5th time staying in this hotel, and I love the neighborhood and how easy it is to get to the center by metro or on foot.
The staff is very nice and attentive(though there is no one to be found at the desk after 01:00), even more so than other times that I was there. The rooms are a decent size, nice and clean, very comfortable bed, etc.
There used to be a loud disco on the basement level, but it was unusually quiet the week I was there.
It's always nice to be there.

We had another visit in German Christmas Markets, this time in Frankfurt. Alexander am Zoo is a perfect choice if you prefer a hotel in a quiet peaceful area. It is only 20 minutes walk to centrum of Frankfurt's busiest shopping area, Ziel, and a couple more minutes more to Rathaus. The hotel is very nice, the suite we had was excellent, airy, furnished with good taste. Breakfast was nice, no fuzz with good choices. In nearby you can find a different Frankfurt with restaurants worth visiting.
We also enjoyed an evening in English theater, go and check it.

Room Tip: Choose suite, visit the sauna eventhough it is not a real Finnish sauna.

We stayed for two nights here for the Christmas Market and really enjoyed it. I liked the quiet location on a residential street. Nothing fancy but perfectly comfortable and the staff are pleasant. The room was decently sized and very clean. Service was friendly and flexible - we arrived early and they had no problem with letting us check in early so my daughter could have a nap. Breakfast was good, coffee was hot and plentiful. It's a reasonably easy walk to all the main shopping streets and, if you'd rather not walk, the U-Bahn is a couple of hundred metres away. The Bergerstrasse - with lots of cafes and some quirky shops - is very close. If you have kids, it might help to know this is next to the zoo and very far from the Hauptbahnhof area that you might prefer to avoid. Only small downside was you had to pay for Wifi (unless you booked on the hotel's own site).

We sayed in this Hotel for three nights and enjoyed every thing. The room ( standard room ) was very spacious , not like the most of the city hotels. Very clean, quiet and the location was ideal for going shopping on the "Zeil". Breakfast was standard, nothing to exiting but a good atmosphere. The parking was a bit problematic in the underground car park if your car is a bit bigger than a pram and € 14.- per night need to be reviewed by management.
But all in all were pleased with our stay and will book this hotel again.
