Historical Traveler Reviews Fleming's Hotel Frankfurt-Messe
Modern, clean and comfortable!
Very close to the main train station and within walking distance of all the major sites.
Fabulous little hotel - loved it
What a great boutique hotel.
The rooms are gorgeous - VERY spacious, and really cool decor - someone has put a lot of time and thought into the look. Spotlessly clean. Staff were excellent.
Breakfast was a bit pricey (you may not be aware you're paying separately for tea or coffee!) but very very good... just don't arrive too late or some of the items are gone.
There is a sauna, although I didn't try it so I can't comment on that.
I would go back here any time.
EXCEPTIONAL value for money -- compared to what you get elsewhere for the same money, this place is unbelievable.
More than impressed...
I've travelled to Frankfurt on a few occasions, this was the first time with my wife. The area around the station has always struck me as a bit like 'Soho' in London with the large number of strip clubs and a few unsavory characters hanging around, but there's elements like that in any major city, and we felt quite safe during our weekend stay. Maybe because the World Cup was on, and security a little more visible. Anyway, can't fault a location only 5mins walk from the main station (Euro 3.35 per person from the airport - much cheaper than taxi!)
I love the decor of the interior, very modern with dark woods and spotlights. The receptionist got us checked in quickly, and we were up to our room in no time. The door numbers are not printed on the door or even next to. They are on the floor in front of the door, projected from a spotlight in the corridor ceiling. Nice touch!
That glass shower right in front of the bed may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I thought it was completely brilliant! No iron in the room, but a quick call produced the goods very quickly. Again, modern fittings in the bathroom and a headboard with integral lighting stood out for me as areas of design. I must say I had no probs with the bed or with outside noise, although the view wasn't up to much, looking onto another wall. But then again, I've paid much more for worse at some central London hotels.
I was pleasantly surprised by the breakfast, continental hotels usually provide very average fare. At Flemings, we had freshly made scrambled eggs, unlimited fruits/cereals/tea&coffee/bread and condiments, and it was included in the rate.
Overall terrific value for money (we paid £45 for the room) and well located boutique hotel
Good concept, mediocre execution
Fleming´s Hotels is a relatively new chain which is steadily expanding throughout Germany. The concept is very attractive: Offer attractively furnished quality rooms in good locations at a reasonable price and cut the frills like huge reception area, room service, health club, multiple restaurants etc.
The Frankfurt Messe Fleming´s would fulfill these points but I believe that the hotel´s management badly needs to adress some points before I could recommend this location. That there was a sewage smell problem described in a review below becomes apparent the moment you enter the hotels short stairway which leads up to the reception, I almost had to gag. Thankfully the reception itself, the restaurant, hallways and most importantly, the rooms are free of the smell and it´s otherwise only noticeable in the ground floor stairways where the lift is located. A sewage leak is an absolute worst case scenario for a hotel, they seemed to have mostly taken care of it but why they don´t adress the smell in the entrance is very puzzling. Due to that area being enclosed by glass doors on the top and bottom, the smell won´t just go away. Air deodarants would help but a massive clean up mission is neccessary here!
Check-in was quick and easy, no complaints here. The rooms are relatively small but very nicely appointed, the interiour is very pleasantly designed, much nicer than the average European four star hotel. The bathroom is integrated into the room, with a full glass shower and elegant glass wash basin visible from the room, the WC is in a small seperate room with a door.
The queen size bed thankfully only has one mattress but two small duvets. The pillows are kind of small and I definitely would have needed two more if I had shared the room. Rare for this class of hotel in Europe is the airconditioning which ran very quitely and cooled reasonably well. In-room safe, minibar and TV completed the rooms fittings. So basically everything you need is provided, less the luxuries 5 star hotels provide like bathrobes, slippers, fruitbowl etc.
I was in Frankfurt during the World Cup and watched a bit of TV. Everytime it rained outside the satellite (?) signal was interrupted. This is another point which I´m convinced management is aware of but nobody seems to care too much about it.
I spent a weekend morning in my room working and shortly after noon got a call from housekeeping if I wanted my room cleanded that day! Such a call is certainly reasonable at 4 or 5 pm but certainly not at noon! The next day I was off to an earlier start, the room next door was just being cleaned. But when I returned at 2.30 pm, house keeping hadn´t even started on mine. I´d be curious to know what kind of a pattern they use to determine which room gets cleaned first, other hotels certainly do a better job in this regard.
The hotel has a very nice looking bistro next to the reception, the menu looked tempting but I was too turned off by the sewage problem to consider having a meal there. There´s very little staff present, those I met were effienct and helpful but more the "cool" type than overly friendly.
Compared to many of Frankfurt´s tired and worn hotels, Fleming´s absolutely has the potential to become an affordable gem in the city´s hotel pool. But a couple of screws need to be tightened, such a new hotel (opened in spring 2006) should pass out guest questionaires and address the points guests raise. At the moment I doubt anybody there is really concerned with solving some of the not so trivial problems the hotel is experiencing.
Nice, Super clean, and friendly staff, and excellent food.
I arrived at the Flemings Hotel in May 24 2006. I have to say It has a modern look and they are really clean and awesome service and whats good about it that the train station is like 5 min walking distance. The only bad thing about it is that there was a little group of people near the hotel smoking crack and doing cocaine but other than that they never bothered me they are just doing there thing and if you think about it theres people like that everywere so you cant help it but other than that I recommend it.
The worst ever
Worst hotel experience ever. When we arrived the police interrogated some drug dealers just in front of the hotel. Inside, it smelled extremely bad from the sewerage system. The hotel promised us that they were taking care of it, however never appologized and more or less ignored it. The smelliness continued for 3 more days - we renamed the hotel "Cloaca".
An excellent boutique hotel
I very much enjoyed my stay at this boutique hotel. It was a short walk from the Frankfurt main station (come out of the main entrance, turn left and proceed three streets down and turn left).
The front desk staff were competent, friendly and helpful.
The hotel has been attractively decorated and I loved the room design. The glassed in bathroom area will not work for all, but I thought it worked excellently.
The workout room is small but effective and there is a very nice sauna.
I had dinner at the Bistro in the hotel, which I strongly recommend for the quality of food, ambience and particularly price.
A boutique hotel at a very reasonable price.
Good Location-Bad Nights Sleep
Excellent location-a little walk to old town-next to train station. FOOD WAS EXCELLENT!! As was the service. BUT--- THe beds were uncomfortable,and a couple of times the room water had a strange salt taste. Rooms were clean and modern. It was pretty quiet. The location, service, and food were so good-but the room was a little uncomfortable.
The hotel is new, opened in the Spring of 2005. The furnishings are fresh & stylish. The rooms are clean, have a pleasing décor, and have comfortable beds. Some of the rooms have flat screen TVs. I enjoyed the restaurant. It has a good variety of dishes and is reasonably priced.
The service was efficient, but quite somewhat cold & impersonal.
The hotel is convenient to the main train station, about two blocks away. The area around the Frankfurt bahnhof is the armpit of Germany. There are a lot of very creepy characters in this area, including quite a few junkies. On the first day there, I saw a guy shooting up between his toes just a few doors away from the hotel. The subway exit nearest the hotel also seemed to attract these type of people. That said, the area is probably pretty safe during the day. The hotel is near the corner of two busy streets. There seemed to be safety in the crowds.
Great little design hotel
Hotel looked great on the website and so did the rate of 59 Euros for a double without breakfast. It's very close to the trainstation which is not really the most happening area of Frankfurt but well located to do lots of stuff walking. Service was very friendly and not stuffy at all. The hotel has a little brasserie which serves good food and a little bar/ deli that has sandwiches and treats like Valronha chocolate.
My room was very minimalist in design without being cold. You can choose the colouring of the ambient lighting and the shower is big enough for two and partitioned off from the rest of the room by a glasswall. Quite funky really.
On the downside the hotel is on a busy street with streetcars but the windows are sound proofed to keep disturbance to a minimum.
All in all a very pleasant stay and an absolute bargain, too.

... south Tehran is poor... And more. All in a 20 minutes and well worth the fare.
The rental car has sat nav, thank goodnes. However, we are now on pretty familiar turf. We headed off to Bad Homburg for lunch at our favourite potato restaurant. Now we are in Usingen at one of our favourite little hotels, the Kaminstube and are meeting our friends, Adelheid and Joachim for supper.
We arrive in Frankfurt around 11:00 a.m. David gets instructions on and where to take the train into the city. As we ride along I noticed that the color of the leaves are now turning yellow and orange. The country side is just beautiful. The part of the city that we saw was mapped out like a
big mall. No traffic! You can walk in every direction and not have to cross a street. MY feet are holding up as we are going ...

Eventually, my free airport wifi having run out, and resorting to my iPod to contact mum and dad, my plane has a gate! A20! Delayed only 2 and a bit hours. Now my task ...
... has bamboozled me all my life, so I was happy. He also presented 3 new releases. There was a really good modern day drama as well. It was interesting to here talks given in English by Germans, Africans, poms and kiwis. Hard to understand some. There are 3300 foreign delegates, mostly yanks, but also quite a few Greeks. The day went really quick, and I'm back in the hotel lobby typing this. Still light and beautiful outside even at ...
... African restaurant (we ate with our hands using a traditional sponge like bread) and a trip to the cinema sneak. The sneak is an awesome idea, basically you pay four euro for a ticket and then you go to the movies with no clue about what you are seeing. Potentially, it could be anything from romance to horror (out of new release movies) so you have to go along with an open mind. Luckily, the movie turned out to be really good and about ...
