Help with hotel directions, Please

We will be staying at hotel Maingau on Schifferstrasse in Sachsenhachsen.

We will arrive at the main train station from the airport.

It looks to me on the map, that from the train station we could take the U train to Brandt PL and transfer to another U train to go to Schweitzer PL in Sachsenhachsen.

It looks to be a short walk to the hotel from there.

However, the hotel said that from the Main train station we would need to take a train to the South Main train station and from there walk along Bruckenstrasse to the hotel.

This seems farther but maybe I am not seeing it correctly.

Any help and direction would be appreciated!

There are closer options by bus (closest), tram or S-Bahn (to Lokalbahnhof). Interestingly the RMV timetable suggests neither yours nor the one recommended by the hotel. Just pick the one which suites you best.

RMV timetable


From: Frankfurt (Main) Airport

To: Frankfurt am Main - Sachsenhausen, Schifferstrasse 38

I believe there is another option:

From the airport, S-Bahn 8 or 9 to the main train station downtown, exit.

Take tram 16 to Textorstrasse(the stop after Brucken-Textorstrasse), exit, and walk 2 blocks.

We stayed at the Maingau a few years ago, and enjoyed the hotel. The nights are quiet as you have a park in front , so hardly any traffic.
