In March of 2012 my wife and I stayed at this hotel in transit between Copenhagen and Seattle and were fully satisfied. The hotel is a brisk 10 minutes indoors walk from Terminal 1 of Frankfurt Airport, but before you set out, it is advisable to ask airport staff for direction. Once on the right way there are (small) signs leading to the Hilton Hotel.
The Garden Inn has a nice, warm, and well illuminated lobby next to the more imposing and dark Hilton Hotel. The reception personel was friendly and eager to talk about the hotel.
The rooms are, as others have stated, indeed small and tightly packed with the necessary furniture. It was perfect for a night's stay with only handluggage, but would be crammed with suitcases and for a longer stay. The beds are extremely nice, and, by the use of the special gadget on the side, which regulates the softness/hardness of the mattress, fits anybody's wishes. We had a room facing the highway and the forest, and the triple glazing of the windows prevented any noise from the outside. It goes without saying that the room is extremely clean.
The breakfast was a full breakfast buffet, with nothing missing. Since it is completely self service, it would, however, have been nice, if there were small decaffeinated coffee bags (Kaffee Hag) available, since it is hard to attract the attention of serving staff.
The friendly atmosphere, the room, and the convenient proximity of the hotel to the airport, without needing to wait for a hotel shuttle, will definitely make us stay at the Garden Inn next time we need a stopover at the Frankfurt Airport.
