“older budget hotel 2 miles from airport”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2008

Having stayed in most hotels around Frankfurt airport, we decided to give the Tanne Hotel a try. Owned and operated by two friendly sisters, the 36-roomTanne Hotel, located in a quiet residential street proved to be very near the airport, easy to find, with free parking on-site.

Check-in by one of the very well English speaking owners was short and pleasant. Our no-smoking room #107 was up one floor with no elevator, which meant lugging the suitcases up the stairs, though help was offered. Turning the corner toward our room, we could not help but notice the totally soiled hall way carpet looking as if a regiment of chimney sweeps stays here every night. The carpet in our room was not as badly soiled, but equally past replacement time.

The room and the bathroom were on the smallish side, and furnishings, appointments, and ancient TV gave away the fact that this hotel has been around for some time, even though the owners are definitely trying to udate. as is evidenced with wireles LAN and ISDN telephone Internet connections. Additionally, a computer terminal was available for guest use in the lobby.Beds were comfortable and the tiled, small bathroom with stall shower, hair dryer were very clean. A nice touch was a plate of fresh fruit and Haribo gummi bear packets in the room. No minibar/fridge was in the room, but ice cubes were available in the restaurant. Cold drinks could be taken in the TV lounge on an honor system basis. Despite no A/C and open windows, airport noise was not an issue and we had a very good night sleep here.

A small, cozy restaurant served reasonably priced, good meals to be selected from a menu in English. Breakfast was buffet style in the same place. All in all, for US$185 the Tanne offers an alternative with a personal touch to the chain marquis hotels in the same price range, but it definitely needs to replace unsightly carpeting.

This small, simple, 3*, family-run hotel is located on a quiet residential street only a five minute drive to Frankfurt airport! The owner was very welcoming and helpful, the rooms were super clean and my favorite part of all: crisp, ironed, white linens on the beds. The bathroom's look was a little dated (brown/beige), but it was so clean, we couldn't really complain. (We had a shower, no bath.) My kids were delighted to see little "gummy bear" packets on our pillows, and were happy to find out about the "lounge" on the first floor: this room has a larger screen tv -small tvs are also located in each guest room-, coffee/tea making facilities, candy, board games and a computer with high speed internet access cheap (2 Euros per hour) in case you forgot your laptop. (There is wireless access in all rooms as well.) We would definitely go back there before a flight out of Frankfurt airport. Wouldn't recommend for a longer stay since there is not much to do, no swimming pool. There are a couple restaurants in the village center, a 10minute walk away. Do note that there is no elevator... So you must carry all your luggage up to your room yourself. There is a restaurant for breakfast and dinner. We paid 113 Euros for a night, 2 adults and 2 children. -1 double bed, one single bed and one comfortable, folding cot with a decent mattress. Breakfast is extra.
