Only one night stay, but the room was clean, staff was very friendly and accomodated a slightly later checkout no problem. Having parking in garage under the hotel is nice, althought was 17euro for night. Breakfast was very good in the morning, lots of options, and very fresh! Would stay again.

Thank Carson C
AlexZoo, Manager at Alexander am Zoo, responded to this review

Dear Carson, thank you so much for sharing your kind comments with us. Our parking fee seems to be high, but in comparison to other garages in Frankfurt it is still moderate  See you soon! Michelle Jandel-Mouqué & Team.

I have been in this hotel for 3 nights. Very good breakfast, friendly staff, value for money appreciated, parking space for a price and for skilled drivers. :-)) If you do not have/rented a Porche you end up on he elevator!! :-) Interesting, anyway!

Dear Parmena, thank you for having been our guest at the Alexander am Zoo and your honest evaluation on tripadvisor – indeed the parking garage can be a challenge even with a Porsche – hope you had a safe trip home! Best regards Michelle Jandel-Mouqué, General Manager & Team

It was a short stay, but very pleasant. Great breakfast, excellent room, very comfortable and charming hotel. There's a mini market close to the hotel, what makes easier to choose what to eat and drink. Really think about going again to Frankfurt and staying at the Alexander am Zoo.

Comfortable and clean. Have stayed here before when visiting family who live just a few blocks away. It is in a residential area so no amenities in the immediate vicinity but a 10 minute walk takes you to shops and restaurants. I give this hotel only 3 stars because once the breakfast room is closed there are no facilities for...

The room was clean and almost large for 2 persons. Clean and comfortable. Breakfast simple but good. Acceptable pricing for FFM. The location IMHO is not working if you wanna be close to Berger Strasse, Zoo or EZB. For other sightseeing it is to far out.

Thank Stefan G
AlexZoo, Manager at Alexander am Zoo, responded to this review

Dear Stefan, we are a 4 star hotel and as you pointed out near the Frankfurt Zoo, EZB and Berger Strasse. The city center can be reached with two stops by underground and tram and the big advantage you have is that the Alexander am Zoo is located in a quiet area, so you can sleep with the window open...

I had a very nice and comfy stay at this hotel. Room was clean and spacious. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was clean and everything was in order. Wifi/Internet was strong and worked fine. Zoo metro station is about 10-15 minutes walk, or you can take light rail tram a block away. Breakfast buffet was wonderful and had lots of variety....

This is primarily a business hotel but we enjoy it as tourist when visiting friends in Frankfurt. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, except for the few rooms on the ground level which are smaller and give onto a sidewalk -- best avoided if possible. Good Wifi, great breakfast buffet with excellent coffee and varied choices. I do have...

We booked a deluxe room for a 4 night stay. There was a sitting room with kitchenette and a separate bedroom. Coincidently our visit to Frankfurt was over the time of the biannual motor show. Apparently this is one of Frankfurt's biggest events. We wondered why accommodation was hard to find and relatively expensive. Our visit also coincided with a...

This hotel is good choice if you don't mind being just slightly out of the center of Frankfurt. It's a quiet neighborhood yet only a few U stops away from all the action, and less than a half hour from the airport. The room was clean, bright, and spacious as was the bathroom. The breakfast buffet is excellent and included...

Well we have returned home to Frankfurt. The only animals at the Alexander am zoo were the Giebels lol. The hotel was in the heart of old Frankfurt and near shops, cafes, and bars.

Dear Travelling Giebels, thank you very much for your review on tripadvisor – we do appreciate your kind words as well as the critics regarding our breakfast ladies. We already addressed the topic and I can assure you that it was not meant badly as all of them are “foreigners”. Hope to see you again at the Alexander am Zoo...
