Hotel Hammer is conveniently located just across the street from the train station and a short walk to all of the sites. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, and the breakfast buffet was delicious. The staff at the desk provided us with maps and assisted us in planning our day cruise on the Rhine. This hotel was perfect for our 2 night stay, give it a try you won't be disappointed.

Staff were efficient. English spoken on request. No tea kettle in our room, but they provided pot of hot water with cups on request. Breakfast very nice with fresh pot of hot coffee delivered to table. Convenient to train and bus. Walkable to Dom and Altstadt. Our room faced the train station. When double windows were closed, there was no noise from street or trains. We were there on some very hot days and AC worked great.
A hook in the bathroom to hang clothes on would be nice.

The hotel has a perfect location for travelers (like us) who wish to use Mainz as a base to tour the Rhine Valley.
The Hotel is opposite the Mainz railway station (the HBF or central station). It is walking distance to the old town, and, has tram services to the old town as well as to other parts of the city.
Rooms and bathrooms are well maintained, breakfast is adequate.The Wi Fi is really fast. We stayed for four nights and were quite happy with our stay.

Room Tip: Our room was facing the railways station and tram stop. We liked the view.

We based ourselves in Mainz for 5 nights at the start of a 2 week holiday in Germany. After a long haul flight to Frankfurt, it was relatively easy to catch a local train to Mainz and the Top Hotel Hammer is just across the road/tramlines from Mainz station. We booked one of the 'penthouse' rooms up on the top floor, which was worthwhile for the extra space. Only downside was that you have to take 2 flights of stairs up from level 5 to the penthouse rooms - which is a bit of a challenge with big heavy cases (there is no porter). Breakfast was very nice and inexpensive by hotel standards (we didn't have it included as we used booking.com to book our room, but we found out it is included if you book via the hotel website) and the breakfast team were friendly and helpful. Room was a bit overheated but you can open the window to cool off - a bonus! And little street noise notwithstanding location. This is a good hotel to stay in for train travellers, we travelled from Mainz to see each of Worms, Heidelberg and Trier - all do-able day trips - and we went to Frankfurt too which is easy. And not far (walking distance) from the town centre of Mainz either - with its terrific market, cathedral and of course also the wonderful St Stephen's. Recommended - a good alternative to staying in Frankfurt.

A few weeks ago, my wife and I did something unusual for us, we stayed for the second time at the same hotel. Back in 2012 we had a pleasant experience, but this time our stay was better. We found everything to be improved in many ways.

The hotel seems to have been recently renovated, our room was better than the previous one, larger,more elegant, and better furnished. My wife liked in particular, the shower stall in the bathroom. Once again, our room faced the street and the main train station, but no noises filtered though the windows.

Even the breakfast buffet was better than we remember in 2012. We enjoyed the fried eggs with tomatoes very much. All other ingredients and food were as good as we remember the first time around.

Perhaps the most memorable aspect of Top Hotel Hammer is the very friendly and helpful front desk personnel. Every time we came to them with questions or requests, we were promptly given all the help we needed.

I am surprised not many travelers have evaluated this hotel. It is my pleasure to strongly recommend it to all once more. You will enjoy the rooms, the breakfast, the extremely good location, and most of all, the service.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Hammer for one night just after landing in Frankfurt. The hotel is clean and modern with helpful and friendly front desk staff. Our room wasn't ready but they were happy to store our bags while we wandered around Mainz. Small hotel bar (manned by the front desk staff member) was nice to relax at after calling it an early night. Breakfast was good with lots of options that kept us both happy! Would stay again if flying into Frankfurt to avoid the city.
