Like its sister hotel the City Hotel Frankfurt, the City Hotel Mercator offers clean and updated rooms at affordable rates. It’s a reliable three-star hotel set in a tranquil and stately residential neighborhood, just a 10-minute walk from downtown.
Parquet flooring and dark wooden beds add a hint of sophistication to the City Hotel Mercator’s 34 guestrooms. The beige walls, however, could use a new coat of paint, and seem rather thin (sound from the hallways carries). All rooms are equipped with a television and phone.
The tiled private bathrooms are spotless, although we found the industrial soap dispensers (in lieu of the toiletries) more fitting for a YMCA than a hotel. But with singles starting at €38 a night, who’s complaining?
The hotel’s immediate surroundings may seem a tad sedated, but keep in mind that Frankfurt’s North End is in high demand. From the City Hotel Mercator, guests can easily walk (through a green park) to downtown, or trek up to Bergstrasse’s trendy shopping and eating possibilities.
Wi-Fi is free throughout, but can be spotty in some rooms. Breakfast is sometimes included in the room rate (check when booking).
