Reviewed 11 March 2013

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.

We stayed at the Hotel West for three nights, and thoroughly enjoyed the quiet comfort of this place. The staff is extremely friendly and competent. The location could not be more convenient, with Frankfurt University just around the corner and the Bockenheimer Warte with its many shopping opportunities within easy reach. And to reach the city center, a pleasant 15 minute walk will take you there.

We stayed at the Hotel West at the end of our European vacation for two nights. As frequent visitors to Frankfurt, we know the city really well and like the lively and diverse area around Bockenheimer Warte, the former center of the university.

The hotel is right around the corner of the square around Bockenheimer Warte, with its many cafes and subway, tram, and bus lines. The U4 subway links you to the main railway station in less than five minutes, with convenient onward connection to the airport. The U6 and U7 provide frequent and quick service to Frankfurt's main shopping area around Hauptwache.

Our room was very spacious and had a nice feel to it. The beds were comfy, and a pillow that had an odor was quickly replaced. Everything seemed very new at the hotel. As a matter of fact, construction on the first floor was still ongoing, but did not affect us at all. The breakfast was good. Throughout our stay, the staff was very attentive.

Our main complaint is the high cost of WLAN, which at Euro 8 per day is overpriced; however, service was very reliable. Finally, when booking the hotel, keep in mind that there is no elevator. But the stairs are easy to navigate.
