“Happy Hammer”
Reviewed 3 February 2008

We stayed in Mainz for one night, our first on this trip and my partner's first night in Europe ever. We flew into Frankfurt am Main, caught a shuttle to Terminal 2, went down to the railway station and caught the S-Bahn to Mainz - all very easy. We walked out of the railway station and saw the Hotel Hammer straight across the road. The perfect experience after the long flight from Australia.
The welcome in the hotel was very friendly and check-in efficient. Our room was quite small but big enough, with two single beds pushed together, two armchairs, minibar, TV, cupboards and a very compact bathroom with a tiny but very functional shower. It was all very clean, modern and pleasant, and had a great view of the railway station!
The next morning (after 12 hours' sleep!) we had a great German breakfast, including my favourite - chocolate muesli. Check-out was again easy and pleasant. After we had been into the ticket office at the railway station we walked out to find Frau Krueger from the Hotel Hammer had come over with my Visa card, which I had left at reception. If she hadn't found us, she was going to have us paged - very kind.
Overall this was a wonderful way to start our holiday and I would recommend it to anyone flying into Frankfurt.

Stayed at Mainz for the Christmas Markets, for 4 nights, really liked the hotel & our room but unfortunately we were allocated a smoking room, not the hotel's fault, we hadn't requested non smoking. They couldn't do anything the first night as they were full but did promise to move us for the rest of our stay & kindly gave us an air freshener spray !!! After spraying the room thouroughly, leaving the window open and turning on the air conditioning we decided it was loads better and didn't change rooms as we liked the one we had. The hotel itself is very nice with a good breakfast selection served in a nice room. It is right across the road from the station which is handy and about 10 minutes walk into the old town. The double glazing is very good & the room was really quiet especially as we were opposite the station, bed was comfy too. We ate at several very nice restaurants and found the prices to be very reasonable.

  • Liked — Convenience to station and town

We have just returned from a weekend in Mainz. We stayed at Hammer hotel for one night. It takes 25 minutes from Frankfurt main aiport by train (3.55 euro single trip) to Mainz. The hotel is right outside the Mainz central train staion and it takes about 15 minutes lesuirely walk to the main square area.

Our room was on the 3rd floor facing the train station. The room was clean, spacious and very quiet. We were most impressed with double glazed windows! Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was also clean and spacious.

Staff were very helpful and friendly. Breakfast buffet included in the rate was excellent- good selection of cold meat, cheese, breads, cakes,cereal, yogurt, lots of fruits and even chocolates! Probably the best hotel breakfast we've tried in Europe.

On Sunday morning at 8am, a cleaner (we presume so) tried to open our door. I suggest you put 'do not disturb' sign out if you want to sleep in.

Highly recommend Hammer hotel as it provides good value for money and friendly staff make your holiday cheerful.

The Hammer hotel is located across from the main train station and bus depot in the centre of Mainz town. Friendly reception, clean rooms, good breakfast buffet, good value for money.
Limited on-street parking available around the corner (metered by weekday & Saturday). Would stay here again.

Just back from a 4 day visit to Mainz in Germany and stayed at the Hammer Hotel, which is situated across from DB Station.
I had booked a number of rooms in September 2006 as initially there were 7 people travelling, during the following weeks extra people joined our trip and finally totalled 10 persons. On every occasion when I phoned or emailed the hotel, the staff were extreamly helpful and nothing a problem and emailed confirmation of each new change. We finally arrived on Friday 1st of December and again extreamly helpful staff members were on hand book us in. Our rooms were comfortable with adjustable air conditioning / heating in each. Windows were well double glazed which was great as ours faced out on to the busy square outside. Breakfast was a buffet sytle and plenty of a lovely continental spread with cheeses meats fruit breads and pastries etc.
The location of this hotel was great, 10 to 15 minutes walk into the shopping area, some nice restaurants just around the corner
Taxi rank and bus to Frankfurt Hahn Airport across the street beside the Train Station.
Rooms were excellent value as breakfast was included and
on booking out on Monday morning, the Hotel retained our luggage until evening when we left Mainz and as you can imagine with 10 ladies that meant a lot of cases and bags

We stayed at the Hammer on the 24th and 25th of July 06. It is most certainly one of the best hotels We have stayed at. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was continental but We loved it. The room was perfect with the most comfortable bed. It was also air-conditioned, and as there was a heatwave this was most welcome. It is only a ten minute stroll to the old town and is located across from the train station. The coach from Hahn airport stops right outside the door.
