“Lovely visit”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

We stayed here for the location as it was just 10 minutes walk from the Frankfurt Christmas Market. A lovely walk too, straight over the bridge. The staff were absolutely lovely, the rooms had all the essentials, great value for money for a simple hotel with good location. Try the cafe at the end of the road. Very nice for lunch.

This hotel, located 10 minutes' walk from the museum district and a few more from the Old Town, is welcoming, has clean, comfortable rooms and beds, an excellent breakfast, and one of Frankfurt's best restaurants. Parking available nearby at a municipal garage. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Excellent value for money.

Stayed here on business last year during a big exhibition in Frankfurt.
The hotel is ideally located near many attractions and places to eat.
The premium location of the hotel shows in the size of the rooms.. cosy to say the least!
The staff were very friendly and approachable.

Really, the Maingau deserves a C for average. My room was tiny. Breakfast was okay. There is a funkyness about going up some stairs, then across an interior bridge, then down some stairs, to get to an elevator, to go up to my floor, to go up a half-flight of stairs, to go over to the room. Service was okay but nothing to write TripAdvisor about.

What pulls the Maingau up into the B for above average range is the beautiful neighborhood it resides in. The property is in a quiet, small, family-oriented neighborhood, over the river, across from a park. The restaurants in the neighborhood are good and the people here appear to be laid back and enjoying life. The price is okay, but wi-fi is expensive. Reservations can be difficult depending on Frankfurt trade shows. It is a bit of walk from the train station, but not too bad.

I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Street side, up on 4 or 5.

Stayed two nights with my wife. Staff very friendly and polite. First a very polite receptionist explained us about Frankfurt, what to see, where to go, which tram to take,...Very good buffet breakfast. Rooms are good enough for short stay. The only cons is small elevator. But overall good hotel for the value.

Reviewed 22 September 2013

We had two rooms at this hotel. One was upgraded and the other was not. The upgraded room had overall good space. The room that was not upgraded was very small and was referred to by the other couple as the "dorm room" with their divided beds, small floor space and cramped bathroom.

The linens looked very aged but I think it was just a very poor choice in decorative look with the edges/seams tinted yellow that faded to cream. It made them look dingy. Overall the hotel needs a remodel badly, but was very clean. We did not have any dirt issues anywhere in the room, and the bathroom fixtures all functioned well and were in decent repair. It is just clear that everything in the hotel is older. Location was great though for walking around and had a lot of nice stores and cafes nearby.

I'd stay there again, but be prepared to be a little disappointed by the initial impression and decor of the rooms.

Room Tip: Upgraded double room is worth it.

Very pleasant staff, basic decent rooms, excellent shower, able to be on a smoking floor if required(a novelty for me), decent breakfast (if you like continental breakfasts) , very comfy beds and its CHEAP!! If i was staying in the sachsenhausen area again would have no hesitation rebooking, the only negative (and its a small one) is i would have liked to be able to make tea/coffee in my room
