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.
