Nice hotel but not really close to the airport
Posted Jul 5, 2014
The hotel itself is fine. Staff was friendly. Room was fine. The distance from the airport is 15-20 minutes in a shuttle that they advertise as free. You just need to know that it only runs hourly and does not run 24 hours a day. It does not begin before 6am, so if you have an early flight, you need to pay for a taxi. (28-30 Euros is no traffic). There is only one shuttle from what the driver explained to me and it only holds 8 passengers and if it is full, well, you wait another hour. We waited for pick up from the airport/train station in Frankfurt for over an hour and while we fit in from Terminal 1, when we went by Terminal 2, the 3 persons there needing to go to the hotel would not fit in the shuttle van and had to wait for the next one. The traffic was very bad and so it took about 40 minutes to get to the hotel from the airport as it was during rush hour.
So, I just felt the fact that it advertises Airport next to it's name is a bit misleading - it is near the airport, but, on the opposite side of the entrance.
