We spent one night at the Ibis before flying out of Frankfurt home. We stayed there for only one reason: so we could turn our rental car in at the airport and use the free shuttle to return for our flight out the next morning.
As others have mentioned, this hotel is actually some distance from the airport - but it does have a free shuttle that makes frequent runs.
1. The free shuttle
2. The hotel restaurant - virtually empty when we ate there - had excellent food and wonderful, thoughtful service. Good thing, as there was nothing in the neighborhood but closed grocery stores.
1. The location is in a periurban mixed residential/commercial area. It is unattractive and uninviting. In the evening we went out and paced back and forth around the hotel property.
2. Outside the great service at the hotel restaurant, service was underwhelming.
3. If we had stayed here as part of our general tour, we would have been very disappointed. Ugliest place we stayed.
4. While the advertised free Internet, this amounted to a single computer in the check in area with a line of people needing it. Wireless was prohibitive.
Sort of like a Motel 6 experience in any mixed commercial/industrial area of American cities. Don't stay here for any reason but that you are taking a flight out early the next morning, and don't get here any earlier than the evening before you are to go.
