Holiday Inn Express Frankfurt-Messe
Ranked #75 of 269 Hotels in Frankfurt
Reviewed 22 May 2008

We stayed at this hotel for the weekend and enjoyed it very much. Since we had a car, the location was not of too big importance to us. The hotel has its own parking lot, they charge EUR 12.-- per day. However, there are plenty of public parking spots on the side of the street free of charge, and it seems a reasonably safe area, so we parked there, no problem.

But I must say, the area is not attractive at all. No restaurants nearby, to walk to the centre it is quite a way, more convenient is the bus. The hotel has no restaurant! However, you can ask for menues at the reception from restaurants that will deliver the food, that is a nice idea, you can eat the food that they bring at the breakfast restaurant.

Breakfast was fine, very nice selection, and, it is free of charge, like at all the express by Holiday Inn. The room was fine too, nothing to complain. The queensize beds are on the small side, though, for 2 adults.

The closest highway exit is "Frankfurt-Westhafen", it takes you directly into Gutleutstrasse where the hotel is located. However, this exit is only accessible from/to the North! If you come from the South, you drive past the "Westhafen", make a u-turn at Frankfurt Westkreuz, and head South again.

The hotel is not really near the Messe. I find the name a bit mis-leading.

The hotel was definitely worth the price we paid. I would definitely stay there again.

Dear Guests,

Thank you for your review, we appreciate your comments!

The Holiday Inn Express brand is not providing restaurants and room service being a limited-service brand. In about 10-15 minutes walking distance you can find a variety of restaurants, such as German, International, Fast Food, Chinese/Korean, Turkish or diners serving Helal food.

The hotel is located 2-2,5 km from the Messe Frankfurt entrances and can be reached with a taxi in approx. 10 minutes. For major fairs, the hotel is usually providing a morning shuttle service to the fairgrounds (no return; at charge; subject to changes)

Martin Nock, Hotel Manager

Stayed here for 1 night in November 06. Newcastle were playing Frankfurt in UEFA cup. 20 min walk from Ryanair bus drop off point and 25 min walk from central rail station. Its in the middle of a industrial area on a main road. Nearest dodgy bar about 10 min walk. Hotel is standard H.I express, all staff speak excellent english and so did everyone we came into contact with in Frankfurt, hotel is clean, light. Rooms are small but all the football traveller needs, shower, WC and free Frankie Vaughan on the Tv. Hotel bar only open 18.00 - 23.00 hrs. So if a night time kick off dont expect to get a beer when you get back from the match. Bus (number 37) runs every 10 mins through the day to the city centre. take 3 mins. cost about 1.30 euro. but you can get a cheap day ticket. The easiest way to get to the ground is by the tram or tube that runs from outside the main train station. Match tickets are valid for public transport 5 hours before game. If you want to fall out of the Irish bar by the train station into your bed this is no good, but for value and quality its ideal. Would stay again.

Just had one night at this hotel waiting for a connecting flight the next day.

Hotel runs a very efficient shuttle service to and from airport.

Staff all very friendly - speak perfect English.

Breakfast bar, excellent - ham, cheese, cereal, fruit, yoguart, pastries, tea, coffee, fruit juice etc etc.

Very clean room, smallish in size, but adequate.

Pre-booked on the net 71 euro including breakfast for two, represented excellent value for money.

We stayed here for 6 nights during the height of the World Cup. The rooms are spartan, but very clean, yet a clothes iron in the room would have been helpful. The pillow was a bit small and a bed sheet would have been nice in addition to the sole comforter on the bed. CNN International was the only english language cable channel available. Instead of a standard bar of soap the hotel opted for the odd dispenser of a mystery shampoo/body wash hybrid. Good thing I brought my own soap and shampoo. Internet access is available in the rooms or on a pay terminal in the lobby.

What I found very enjoyable about the visit was the staff. All spoke fluent english and were sincere in their efforts to help. The night man, Oliver, especially went out of his way to be of service and had loads of great suggestions on where to find local haunts.
The big downside is the location. There's nothing of note in the immediate area, just industrial buildings on the back side of the train station. We used the number 37 bus extensively to get to and from the train station. It's about $1.50 per trip which beats a $8 cab ride. You should note that the shuttle service to the airport is no longer available.

For a clean, reasonable place to stay with no regard to location, this spot is fine. For more action in the immediate area, go elsewhere.

We had an overnight stay at this hotel in May 2005. The hotel is average with comfortable rooms. If you want to be closer to the airport with a decent place to eat, don't stay here! The hotel has a shuttle service to and from the airport that is very convenient.

Just got back from a one night stay at this great Holiday Inn Express hotel. It is located about 20 mins walk from the main railway station in Frankfurt, although the bus from outside the hotel, number 37, drops you at the station and in the City Centre. The hotel is absolutely spotless and I could not fault it. The staff are very helpful and speak English, and the rooms are a good size with power shower. It was a bargain at €75 including breakfast. There is a bar on site also for evening drinks and snacks. The breakfast had a good choice of croissants, cheeses, meats, cereals etc. I stayed at a Holiday Inn Express in London a few years ago and was not impressed.
I would definitely stay here again!
