“Decent HIE”
Reviewed 30 December 2011

Stayed here recently using the 2-for-1 promo. However, we arrived late so that we missed the first day. The reception folks were very nice in giving us two rooms for one night (to make up for the lost night).

Breakfast was also provided. For app. 85 EUR for two rooms, I have no reason to complain.

Of all the Holiday Inn’s I have visited in Frankfurt this is the closest to the city centre, but it is located in an industrial area, so not pretty. The hotel is to the normal Holiday Inn Express standard, the rooms are OK, if a little small, but you get what you pay for. The hotel has a small bar and does basic food in the evenings; I would recommend taking the 2km into the city and get something there. There is free wifi in the bar area, of I think it is 15€ a day in the room, so take a drink in the bar and surf in public. The hotel car park is 12€ per day, and you need to get your ticket validated and the reception before you leave, so a bit of a pain.

Would I stay in this hotel again, yes, but it would not be my first option.

Room Tip: ask for a room at the back, a little quieter.

We recently stayed at this property as a part of our Germany tour and this hotel is though conveniently situated close to Frankfurt Downtown we found it lacking in service perhaps maybe it was a express hotel. For eveything right from a pillow to a pin, we were asked to pick it up from front desk.The airconditioning was turned off stating its winter and if you open the windows there is the road traffic noise all night!!Also rooms felt claustrophobic though the breakfast was okay!
Would surely NOT recommend it as a family property!! Fare from Airport is 30 Euros so might as well spend the 60 Euros on a Airport hotel!

Room Tip: On the front side there is the road traffic and rear side there is the train lines so take ur pick

We recently returned from a 1-night stay in Frankfurt as part of a longer trip through Germany. This was a last-minute stay, as we cancelled a night in Baden-Baden while we were traveling and made a decision to overnight in Frankfurt instead. We knew nothing about this hotel ahead of time, and chose it because we could find it in our GPS easily and because it offered availability at an inexpensive rate. For 59 euros and a clean room, I guess I shouldn't complain.

We stay at Holiday Inn Express chain quite frequently, and found that this hotel fit into our expectations of the brand. The room was plenty large, clean, and comfortable. It looked new and was a fine property. The staff spoke English well.

My number one priority for a great stay is a good night's rest, and I am thankful that I received exactly that at the Holiday Inn Express. The room was wonderfully quiet, and we loved the firm pillows offered by international chain hotels rather than the feather pillows typically found elsewhere in Germany.

Our disappointment is with the hotel location. As we stumbled upon this hotel with no planning, we made do with it but I wouldn't recommend it for a multi-night stay on a tourists vacation. There is a bus stop about 5 minutes walk away, but on weekends the bus runs quite infrequently making it difficult to rely on public transportation. The subway is not within walking distance. For such a short stay, we chose to taxi to Sachsenhausen for dinner and a night out (which is all we had time for anyway given an evening arrival in the city and a morning flight home). A taxi was about 12 euro each way. This district was a lot of fun, with lots of restaurant options and a lot of nightlife. Great people-watching!

There was plenty of parking at the hotel, and easy access to the autobahn. The airport was a quick, easy drive in the morning.

Breakfast was nothing to write home about, with a standard German buffet of cold cuts, breads, cheeses, cereals, and juices. However, the food was not of the same quality we had at other hotels offering the same variety. We had been spoiled earlier in the week with such fresh food that we were not expecting canned fruits, prepackaged spreads, etc. Breakfast was quite crowded, so expect to wait in line for a while to get your coffee and food before sitting down.

There was a computer and printer in the lobby available for use, at a rate of 5 euro for 30 minutes. It was convenient for printing out boarding passes for our flight, but if you need to be wired in for business I would bring your own laptop.

The staff at the Holiday Inn Express in Feldkirchen was very welcoming and most accommodating to us. We were in Munich for Oktoberfest. The staff gave us accurate information about what to expect at Oktoberfest on opening day and the days following. We enjoyed staying in quiet Feldkirchen after being in busy Munich all day.

The Holiday Inn Express was an easy walk to the train station (about 15 – 20 minutes walking). The bus was easy to take to and from the train station when we had our luggage with us.

The staff at the Holiday Inn Express made good recommendations for restaurants. We ate at three different restaurants in Feldkirchen and they were all good.

The room was a comfortable size for our family of three people. We especially liked the bathroom door. It could shut to enclose the toilet or shut to enclose the entire bathroom. It was nice to have the hair dryer outside the bathroom. The room temperature was pleasant.


Breakfast was included with the cost of the room and lasted until 10:30 a.m. The German style breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The staff was pleasant and efficient in keeping the breakfast area clean and well stocked.

We also enjoyed having coffee and drink service available in the lobby 24/7. The staff was friendly and often called us by name.

This holiday inn express has a nice entrance and breakfast seating is adequate. Variety at breakfast was good but the let down is the size of the rooms. they are small, but i guess we kind of knew that.

Can't overly complain and they validate your car park ticket but charge you at the end of ur stay for parking. we were charged 11 euros for a 2 day stay. not terrible.

location wise it's near frankfurt but you need a car for sure.

quilt we got on our double bed was TEENY! really small!!

My wife and I stayed in the hotel just a few days after it opened and we got a great deal on the room for two nights on our European trip. The rooms were clean and tidy; however, there were carpets everywhere and I am afraid their condition will deteriorate with time. The bed was a bit on the narrow side but very comfortable. The parking space was ok and cost EUR 12 per day, which I think is reasonable. The breakfasts were ok, but nothing special - we chose to have our breakfast in the Walden the second day. The location of the hotel is great, just a few minuted by walk from the center. All in all, a good hotel.
