Alexander am Zoo is a very nice hotel, about a twenty minute walk (or seven minutes via the tram) from Downtown Frankfurt - it's also an excellent example of why it pays to search for accommodation on Trip Advisor. During a recent business trip, I wanted to stay for a night in Frankfurt but the prices of most hotel accommodations were highly inflated given the season (end of January 2012). There may have a trade show or conference going on, I'm not certain. But then I searched for a four star hotel in the low to medium price range, and the Alexander am Zoo popped up at the top of the list. For the most part, the reviews were bang on - a lovely hotel in a quiet, suburban setting, large (for Europe), well-appointed rooms, modern features with some old world touches like heavy, embroidered curtains. Service was excellent and the front staff were just like the movie concierges - well-groomed, very professional, poised and courteous; knowledgeable about local transit and city attractions. Same for the ladies serving breakfast - very attentive and showing great care for the guests. By the way, the breakfast was excellent.and included a combination of hot and cold dishes.
Just a couple of very minor negatives: the non-smoking room smelled of smoke and the bath towels for some inexplicable reason were small and paper thin. Again, not a big deal. For my next trip to Frankfurt, I'm staying at the Alexander am Zoo
