“Nice hotel close to airport”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

We love the hotel, it is clean, quiet even close to the airport. The quality of the hotel and price are fantastic! Even breakfast is not included but cost 7.90euro . it is still worth it. It comes with free wifi and parking space which is absolutely useful for us. Hotel is only 800m to Terminal2 or short walk (10min) to T2. We enjoyed the walk. Reception seems super busy all the time though staffs were being helpful. Room facilities like 2 stars, for example there is no fridge but there is hairdryer at least:). Bed is solid and good, everything looks like new. Breakfast is great. We have issue with the shuttle as it was fully booked even we asked on the evening before due to limited capacity and the shuttle only runs every 30 min even airport is only 5 min drive away. They should increase the frequency of shuttle bus or the size of the bus. Overall it is still a satisfying stay for all of us.

I stayed here one night when I had an early morning flight (flew in the night before). Hotel was fine, check-in staff was very good, room was small but fine, and the price was very reasonable for a hotel near Frankfurt airport...the only issue I saw was that the airport shuttle only held 8 passengers, so when there were 12 waiting to be picked up at the airport, there were some hard feelings for the ones that had to wait for the next shuttle. For the next morning, all the early morning slots were all ready taken when I tried to reserve one the next morning (I was checking in at about 8 pm), so I ended up taking a taxi to the airport. The shuttle is free from the airport to the hotel, it is 3 euros from the hotel to the airport, and the taxi was 7 euros...it also appeared to be a reasonable walk from the hotel to terminal 2 (the receptionist said it was about a 10 minute walk, but it was raining when I went to leave so took the taxi instead). If they had a bigger shuttle, I would have given it 5 stars.

We stayed here for one night before an early flight out of Frankfurt. While the location is great, it is difficult to find. Our slightly out of date GPS took us to another hotel that was still under construction and blocking any sight of the Meininger. After asking for directions 3 times and driving around for 30 minutes, we finally found this hotel. They really should post signs with arrows pointing to the hotel, it has only one small sign on it which can be seen from the freeway, but is just a large "M".

The front desk was very nice and efficient. Our room was ready and clean.

The rooms are VERY basic. and VERY small. There were a few design flaws as well. The lamps on the wall above the bed are quite low and too close to the bed, creating a head banger problem and not good for reading. Right next to the bed and slightly hanging over the bed is a "desk". This was also a hazzard and my husband hit his head on it at least twice during the night.

The bathroom is also very small with barely room for one person.

All in all for the price it was okay for one night. I would not recommend for any longer as not much room for luggage or clothes.

Wifi was fast and consistent.

Kind of a no-frills place. Clean, but the rooms are tiny. Staff most helpful. Free shuttle from the airport, but you have to pay 3 euros to go to the airport. Cheaper to take a taxi if three or more people. No real eating facilities, just a bar and snack bar off the main lobby. Pretty crowded due to lack of space. Price was good at 31 euros per person, 62 total for the night. If you are looking for a place to sleep before your flight, with no frills, this would be the place for the traveler on a budget.

For an airport hotel, I made the mistake of not seeing the check in time. Arrived at lunchtime to get our room, to find that it would not be ready until 15:00. Ok. Waited until then, but then told room not cleaned. Others who arrived an hour or so after us got a room before us. What a ridiculous system for an airport hotel. This in Ryan Air gone wrong. NEVER again!!!!!!! Nowhere to wait and nothing to do while waiting. Other time stayed elsewhere and was much better.

We stayed here one night before a very early flight. We paid 76 Euros for 2 in a twin room superior. We loved the homey feel of this place, casual yet efficient. There is a kitchen for guests with a washer and dryer, various breads, etc. We had a wine and beer on the patio and enjoyed being outside. There is a limited menu for dinner, but all we needed. They had salad, pizza, burgers, pasta. The room was clean and extremely well designed for efficiency. There was a couch that we could put our suitcases on for one final pack. We opened the window and had a very good sleep. Internet is provided. We caught the early shuttle, so didn't get to enjoy the breakfast (which is priced separately). All in all, we were surprised with such a friendly place.

We decided to stay overnight in order to catch our early AM flight. The front desk staff was either at the end of the shift or something as they were very abrupt at check-in and I did not get a welcoming feel from them. The room was very clean and the bedding had a fresh smell to it. The bathroom was very clean as well. If you are looking for a quick overnight stay then I recommend this hotel.
