Time for another snapshot, this time looking at the hotel experience at the Hotel Mercure, near the Messe/Hauptbahnhof in Frankfurt.
For those who have forgotten, I have two major travel writing styles:

- Snapshots – These are bite-sized reviews that show you the basic product in some nice gentle headlines (and normally, only images shot on the phone
Booking of the hotel was done the day before travel due to uncertainty thanks to the U.K. travel corridors list. This was down through the Accor site. Originally listed at €42 for a single room, I splurged on a double room and breakfast for €56.
The hotel is located a five-minute walk, north east of the Hauptbahnhof. Exit towards platform 24, cross the road, and then the main rod way from the station. You can’t miss it. It’s also on route 11, 14, 16, 17, 24 tram stop too, with the Platz Der Republik stop directly opposite.
Check in was conducted safely, with a screen between the staff and the public. Hand sanitiser was at teh enteane.
Check in was handled easily, although they didn’t want issue two keys for one person. Payment was also taken at this point.
The room was located on the first floor. Whilst not large, it was dominated by the bed, a table, seat and Tv, with a corner away as a bathroom. There was a coffee maker in the room too.
Small would be a word to describe it, with the essentials there.
Wi-fi was provisioned in the hotel, protected by a password. Once the password was entered, there was no there registration required.
A help-your-self/all you can eat breakfast was offered by the hotel. It was pretty easy to social distance… as no one else was having breakfast.
A mixture of cold cuts, breads, cereals and hot items was offered, along with juices and coffee/tea.
Check out was a simple affair. The key was handed back, and the room was confirmed as “paid in check-in” and no further payment was needed. With that, I was on my way.
The full review soon.
