“Good for last minute sleep over”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

A delayed airplane made it necessary for us to get a room for the night close to Frankfurt Airport. This place where perfect. They have shuttle buses going from the airport, but actually it's only a ten min walk if you don't have to much luggage. The rooms are clean and fresh and the personnel kind.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

This is a typical, but very ordinary airport hotel that should only ever be used if you only want a bed to sleep in while on transit through the airport. The room I had was very small and very basic, with the only redeeming features being that the room was relatively new and clean. The worst part of my experience was that I was charged EUR 401 for one night’s accommodation. This was apparently because of the fact that hotels in Frankfurt excessively inflate prices whenever there is a large trade event on in the city, but since I could get a room here for less than EUR 100 per night under normal circumstances, I could not help but feeling totally ripped off. Added to this was that the cancellation period for a booking was 7 days, which is the worst I have ever come across. I also had to pay EUR 3 for the shuttle bus back to terminal, which considering the price I paid was a bit rich. If you only want a budget hotel, this should be acceptable, but if there is a price inflation, look elsewhere.

It’s great to show up at a hotel that delivers what you expect for an overnight near the airport. Once you get to the correct airport door for the shuttle, you have to go to the furthest of 3 or 4 lanes that pass by the terminal to actually catch it. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the rooms are small but adequate and clean. If you need local currency, make sure to get it at the airport, as you can’t change money at the hotel. You also can't book the return shuttle to the airport until you check in. Since I didn’t get to the hotel until after 9:00 p.m., the first two morning shuttles were already booked, so the hotel had to call for a taxi for me (9 euros instead of 3 euros).

Dear Guest,
thank you for your feedback. Unfortunetly our shuttle bus can only pick up at Terminal 2 cause you are not allowed to park at Terminal 1.
We are sorry for the conjuncture.
Hope to see you soon again.

I have chosen to sleep in a dormitory room in Meininger hotel because it was the cheapest option close to the airport and it was my best choice ever!

I could transit smoothly from airport to the hotel with the shuttle bus (which expected me exactly as described on hotel web site - in front of exit 8 from airport) for free, and it cost me only 3 euros to get back to the airport from hotel (recommanded for people with laggage, if you dont have any , you can walk the distance).

It is very close to airport but thanks to thick windows you dont get awaken by a starting plains.

The breakfast is huge although not much worm things to eat (cerreals, pastries, sandwiches, fruits, juices, coffee, tea, chocolate etc). There is also a guest kitchen if you prefer to dine yourself.

During my one night stay I met increadible people, one girl from Texas, one boy rom Izrael, a gentelman from Germany and I also have been invited to a little party made by 6 Swiss boys who were killing the time at hotel reastaurant awaiting their flight. No one from the hotel crew were hassshing us down, one bartender even joined the fun:)

I like this spirit, I like the place! It has my very positive recommandation!

Hotel located near the terminal. Transfer FROM the airport is free of charge, but you must pay for return way. Walk from the terminal to hotel take about 10-15 minutes. Staff is very polite and helpful. Breakfast are pore. Any hot meals. WiFi works properly.
