I was not willing to stay in this hotel because the reviews but due a last minute change in my plans I decided to give a shot. And then since I got a deal in booking.com with a rate 10 euros lower than in the hotel website, why not?
But now I'm glad I did it.
I got the "Double Room for Single Use". It was spotless clean and spacious. Besides the fact the hotel is close of the one of busiest airports in the world the sound isolation proved itself efficient.
Nice shower with plenty of hot water. Very comfortable bed.
Airport hotels are used to be all gloom with people wandering around like zombies but in this hotel at least the building and staff seems funky and happy. The hotel bar has very reasonable prices for beer and long drinks. I didn't eat there but looks like they have a selection of pizzas and sandwiches.
Free wifi on the lobby and paid on the rooms. I used only on the lobby and it worked fine with the username and password I received upon check in.
Be aware that the hotel shuttle departs from terminal 2 (exit 8) instead terminal 1 like many other hotels. So if you are in terminal 1 you need to take the skyrail to terminal 2 and wait there. It is free from airport to hotel but costs 3 euros from the hotel to airport. Also you need to make a reservation in the hotel desk since the van accommodates only 8 people. The receptionist will ask you if a shuttle is needed while you check in.
Since I live in Brazil, every place outside south america are at least several hours flight. Because of this I'm big fan of layovers and definitely this hotel will become my "layover base" when flying to Europe thought Frankfurt. Also I would recommend to friends.
