“Reliable, Basic Hotel at Reasonable Price”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

Motel One is a budget hotel chain and a reliable budget experience is what one gets. Rooms are clean but very small. I found my room very quiet despite the construction surrounding hotel at the time. Breakfast was a traditional German breakfast. There are a few smallish neighborhood restaurants and coffee shops in the area. I had a good quality pizza very late one evening at an extremely small Turkish run pizza restaurant about one block away. There is also a large grocery store complex two streets away where sandwiches/coffee/pizza as well as groceries can be purchased. (This complex is a bit of a walk)

The location is a bit far from the city center, but a subway stop is about 4 blocks away and there is a bus or tram to center city that stops in front of the hotel.

Reception staff was friendly and eager to please. Prices vary with how many conventions are in town.

It's expensive for what it is - the rooms are basic. Very basic. The bed was hard as a plank and uncomfortable. Bathroom door keeps closing, won't stay open. No storage space anywhere. No phone in the room either! Only sandwiches at the bar and they were disgusting. Since there's nothing nearby, it was my only choice the night I arrived. Breakfast was adequate but breakfasts in Germany are generally great and this one was not, it was just OK. I will not return.

I've used this Hotel during an Exhibition. It's only a few minutes from the Airport with a free Shuttle Service and about 20 Minutes from the Exhibition ground. Friendly and attentive staff, cleanliness of the rooms was Ok. Rooms facing the highway are very loud and the rooms itself are tiny but functionally equipped. The breakfast is quite an experience as you’re sitting on very low bar chairs and tables. Food was OK and fresh fruits available. It’s OK for a short overnight stay if you need to catch a plane early in the morning. Prices vary dramatically, if there is a fair, you might pay as much as in a 4 star Hotel.

Room Tip: Opposite of the Highway

Hotel is an about 20 min drive from downtown Frankfurt and an estimated 20 min to the airport.

The rooms are very small. No real desk, no real chair and the night stand is very small.
Bathroom has a toilet and shower, the teeth cleaning is done inside the room. There is no soap, only a small body / shampoo / whatever liquid.

Electric plugs are next to the bed and next to the so called "desk".

Internet is WLAN based, with a password you get when you pre-pay the bill. No checkout, you pay everything up front. Speed is OK, but it often gets interrupted, hence no larger download possible. VPN, Skype and FaceTime worked, but of course only one device can be connected. Hope the hotel realizes that we write the year 2013.

Rooms have no minibar, drinks can only be purchased from the bar. Better bring a bottle of water.

The rooms are loud, even the ones facing the back. The highway is a source of constant noise and due to the air conditioner you had to open the window, as otherwise the room turned into an oven.

Breakfast is very basic, but enough. Only boiled eggs are available, but bread, cheese some cold cuts etc are. For me enough.

The rooms are clean and inexpensive, hence my average rating, as otherwise I could only give a poor rating.

The Motel One is a 10 minute taxi ride from the airport which costs 20 euros, there is a shuttle bus which you can book for only 6 but it runs every 30 mins or so.

If you are staying as I was for a business trip in/around the airport then this Hotel is fine, the rooms are very basic (don't expect luxuries such as soap) but clean and given it's 50m from the main autobhan quiet. As most reviews have said free Wifi is great and able to run a skype call fine.

Breakfast is basic but more then edible.

There is no restaurant as such, just a bar with snacks so either buy something at the airport or ask at the reception. There is an Indian, 2 Italians and a German/Croatian all within 10 mins walking. I chose the later and a combination of my ropey german and some sympathy got a great 3 course meal and a couple of beers for 24 euros. Literally go to the end of the street (colmarer strasser) turn left under auto bahn keep walking for 7 mins it''s on your right. Residential area, no trouble.

You can get into Frankfurt by either taxi, or public transport - both are easy.

Room Tip: Ask for the suite

Clean adequate rooms. No restaurants in the area so you need the breakfast. WIFI is good. You are in a business district. Close enough to walk to the train into Frankfurt if you don't mind a windy route. Rooms away from the roadway were very quiet. Staff is very helpful and the have a locked luggage storage room which we used as we arrived early in the day.

Room Tip: Ask for off the highway.
