Every year in January I travel to Frankfurt with three colleagues for the Heimtex exhibition at the Messe (have done so for past 30+ years!). From long, hard experience I've learnt that first priority is to have a hotel in easy walking distance - it's no fun standing in long queues for taxis after a full day at the fair when the temperature outside is freezing and snow/rain/sleet is falling. There are a number of luxury hotels close to the Messe - but during fair time their prices are super luxurious. For many years I stayed in a delightful B&B that was 5 minutes walk from the fair but it closed down last year and the manager there recommended the Hotel West to us and we stayed there for the first time this year. An excellent choice!!! I can only endorse what has been said in the previous reviews and just add that for us another big plus is the selection of excellent restaurants that are also within a few minutes walk of the hotel - another essential priority when the weather is cold and wet and one's feet are crying for mercy. I have today confirmed our booking for January 2014.
