“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This hotel is located very near the airport in a office district. Very good for business travellers. The is was clean and with good areas. The breakfast was good and served near the lobby. The wifi connection was very poor...

Clean adequate rooms. No restaurants in the area so you need the breakfast. WIFI is good. You are in a business district. Close enough to walk to the train into Frankfurt if you don't mind a windy route. Rooms away from the roadway were very quiet. Staff is very helpful and the have a locked luggage storage room which we used as we arrived early in the day.

Room Tip: Ask for off the highway.

Standard Motel One facilities. Friendly service. Clean. Well maintained. Even the rooms in the semi-basement are fine - they have windows. Despite being alongside the Highway, no problem with noise. Parking around the hotel is scarce and the Hotel Parking costs 6 Eur/nicht. Free Wifi and good gym facilities (10 Euro) in a nearby office block. No restaurants or bars in walking distance in the evening, so you will need a car or cab to get anywhere. 15 minutes ride from cits center. Single Room for 59Euro.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing away from the highway.

Hotel lobby is great and can deceive you. Construction is going on outside of your room window, the heat in the room does not work...room is 18 by 30 in size, the sink is in the room where the bed is located. The wait staff was very helpful, they served breakfast from 0800to 1100; which was pretty good, the typical stuff was served boil egg, cold cuts and bread.

In my opinion Motel One is the best budget chain of hotels out there, their hotels are stylish and modern and give you exactly what you need for a short stay, whether on Business or Pleasure.

The Motel One Frankfurt Niederrad provided exactly what I expected (having been in other Motel One Hotels in Stuttgart and Hamburg), the rooms are clean, stylish and functional, they give you just about everything you will need. There are no wardrobes, but a couple of hanging rails, and about 6 hangers. There is a lack of storage space for your non hanging clothes though, just a few narrow shelves built into the bed surround, so you will probably need to store most of your clothes in your suitcase.

The bathroom, or should I say shower room, is very compact, contains a nice size shower with good water pressure, although temperature seemed a bit inconsistent when showering at 8am, so you are probably competing with other guests for the hot water. The toilet is in the same room as the shower, and the available floor space, notably when stepping out of the shower, is rather small, so anyone larger than 'normal' size may find it challenging in there. The sink is located outside the shower room, which at first I thought was odd, but it works quite well, and once you are used to this arrangement, its no problem at all.

One noticeable omission from the room is a safe. I know this is budget brand, but every visitor will need a safe, I think Motel One should add them to the rooms.

WIFI is free but seemed quite slow, but I cannot complain really because many hotels charging double or more will charge you extra for wifi, so its good to get it included for free.

The Lobby area also acts as the bar and the breakfast area. Breakfast is a good choice and all the food was fresh, but no hot food available, and for me this was not a problem. The area was very busy around 08:00 to 08:30, but again, it was not a problem, the staff worked hard to clear and reset tables when people left.

Final point is location, Niederrad train station is a short one stop journey from Frankfurt Main Station, but the Motel One is up to 30 minutes walk from Niederrad station, so not ideal if you are staying here without a car. There are a few restaurants in the Niederrad area, but nothing very close to the Motel One.

Overall, recommended, but the location lets it down a little if you are without transport. I would certainly consider staying here again in the future.

I stayed in Motel One Frankfurt Airport for one night. The hotel is quite remoted from the citycentre and it is around 10mins drive from the airport. The hotel provides free shuttle bus to the airport, but only one shuttle bus was operated and you need to book in advance. I took a cab to the citycentre and it cost me around 17Euro.

Staff were all quite friendly, one problem was the hotel has no restaurant, so that you must go out for lunch or dinner. They only serve breakfast in the morning or cocktail in their small bar. The room is very small too, but quite styish and comfy. However, they do not provide toiletries, so please bring your own one. It is also not suitable for business as they don't have a comfy chair or table for you to use your laptop.

Wi-Fi signal was strong in the room, but always got cut off and need to re-enter the login and password again.

The rate wass cheap to stay in here, so maybe not to have too high expectation, then you would feel better.

When I arrived the hotel was covered due to a paint job. So I was worried what to see on the inside. But it was actually pretty ok. The bed sheet was a bit too small, but the rest of the room was ok. Also the staff was very friendly.
