MEININGER Hotel Frankfurt/Main Airport
Ranked #49 of 270 Hotels in Frankfurt
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

Modern beyond any I've ever seen, wood floors, keycard activated power, automated blinds, and aweful service. The maids had left a used prophylactic in my bed, disgusting, and somehow someone else had a key to our room and entered at 8:30.am while we were still in bed... Unfortunately my first trip to Germany is stained by something unworthy and probably unfair, but unforgettable none the less.

Reviewed 8 June 2014

This hotel was booked for the obvious reason--an earlyish flight out of Frankfurt. Room was a little small and spartan but not unusual for this price range in Europe. It was nice and quiet considering its airport proximity. Probably a high point is availability of food and drink 24 hours near the front desk, though I only took advantage of that to get a coffee at 5 AM. The "fitness center" is quite marginal--a stationery bike, an abs contraption, a few weights and a few mats. Probably the largest negative for me was the airport shuttle. I haven't used shuttles much in Europe, as I have in the U.S., but I was surprised that there was an extra charge. Worse, when we had the inevitable flight delay, we were told that the later shuttles were "booked". Happily, cabs do line up there, and apart from the tip, are about the same price for two people as the shuttle would be. Other than that I found my front desk encounters were fine.

We chose this hotel for a one night layover on our way back to Canada. The location was super convenient as it's within a 10 drive from the airport. There's a free shuttle from the airport and it's €3 to get the shuttle back to the airport the next day.
The rooms were new and clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. Wifi was great and had a reliable strong connection. Everything was open 24/7 (bar, restaurant, gym) which is great for jet lagged travellers.
Would definitely choose this hotel again for a layover in Frankfurt.

The quality of Meininger is as good as always. The room is very clean, a little bit small though. Socket and reading light available for each bed. You get to choose your own bed if you check in earlier. Otherwise you can only take the option left, which could be a double bed in the dorm room. Location is excellent for access to the airport! There are free shuttle bus from the airport to the hotel, but the way back costs 3 Euro per person. If you don't have luggage with you, the airport is also within walking distance for like 10-15 minutes. Excellent place to stay for someone who has an early flight in the morning!

This is an airport hotel just five minutes from the Frankfurt Airport. It provides the bare minimum for a comfortable stay. The rooms are the size of a shoebox and you must climb over your own luggage just to get into your bed. The beds are narrow little twins but reasonably comfortable. The bathroom is the size of a large telephone booth with the shower taking up half. Otherwise, it provides all the necessities. I.e. Plenty of electrical outlets, hair dryer, free WiFi, TV and even iPod speaker.

The little bistro is also minimalist. They serve pizza that looks like the kind you buy frozen and some prefabricated sandwiches and salads. There are no other restaurants nearby. The breakfast cost less than 8 euros but is merely average Continental fare.

All in all, the price is very reasonable, the property clean and in good repair, the beds comfortable, the location convenient to the airport and the service friendly and excellent.

I stayed here with my clients in early May 2014. We had 2 rooms, one single and one triple. The main reason to book this hotel was the proximity to the airport.

Positives:
It is very convenient to get to the hotel from the airport via their free shuttle (which runs till 23h i think) and also from the hotel to the airport - where you pay 3 EUR - reasonable. The journey takes 2-3 minutes. If there are more than 3 people in your group, you are better off taking a cab, which the hotel will call for you - the lady at the reception pointed this out to us, which was very kind of her.

My single room was clean and well kept, functional. bathrooms are tiny, but that's true all over Europe. WiFi worked fine everywhere. The triple room was a bit small for my clients, but for just one night, no one really cares.

The breakfast was very good, hearty, filling.

Negatives:

There is a bit of construction going on around the place - so the GPS sometimes gets disoriented - this has nothing to do with the hotel, just something to keep in mind, if you are driving. Parking was a bit steep, but most people here take the airport shuttle.

Overall, a great place to stay if you need easy access to the airport.

My family and I stayed here prior to an early flight. We found the room to be adequate and accurate for our booking. There's not a whole lot around for dining in the immediate area, but at least one hotel with a restaurant nearby. The room was adequately sound proofed for the proximity to the airport. The check-in process was a bit chaotic and took an exceptionally long time due to some computer issues, which hopefully were a one-time event. The staff was friendly enough, but not out of the way friendly given the difficult circumstances and check-in troubles.
