This magical day started with a buffet breakfast since I was staying at a bed and breakfast. Breakfast in Germany is a little different. Plenty of amazing pastries but there is also lots of bread and meat as they actually make full blown sandwiches for breakfast! Harmony would love it here! What she wouldn't love is that it is perfectly normal to …

I had my own room and the room is really big for 1person. I was tempted to use the swimming pool even if the weather is cold and freezing. Bad thing I wasnt able to bring a swimwear. The pool is heated and indoor :)

Historical Traveler Reviews Steigenberger Airport Hotel Frankfurt
This is an excellent night-fefore-the-long-flight hotel. I got a great rate from the hotel booking desk in the Flughafen and the free shuttle runs every 15 minutes. Reception was efficient and friendly on both check-in and check-out. The single room was packed with neat features. So, what's not to like? For starters, some too-clever sadist designed the room which takes some real guesswork to turn on the lights and operate the TV and stuff like that. There seems to be some kind of system that charges you even for opening and looking into the mini-bar. The lobby bar area was decent but no indication that you could order food there. I ate in the traditional German restaurant and dinner with a cocktail and glass of wine was over $60. The food was awful. Tasteles and dry. The service was the same. My order was taken promptly and food appeared right away. Last I saw of that guy until I nearly shouted him down for the check. In the morning, I had the thought that breakfast was included with the room. It was an excellent breakfast but I just wanted some juice, a banana and coffee. I think this cost me about 20 Euros. Oh, well, the internet connection was wired and worked flawlessly. All in all, a solid 4-star hotel with great convenience. Better food is available by taking the shuttle to the airport. If you want to stretch your legs skip the fitness facilities in the hotel and head out the door for the adjacent city forest with walking/running paths. I would definitely stay here again but beware of hidden charges.
Looking for a hotel close to the airport after driving from Koblenz was difficult. We orginally thought we would stay at the Sheraton but after asking price $500.00AUD we decided to go to the Steigenberger Hotel instead, which was only minutes away and it represented excellent value and so much cheaper than Sheraton. Our room 414 was large, modern and comfortable, with all modern facilities. The hotel restaurant which was situated in an outdoor setting, was terrific with a traditional german menu and excellent wine list. (we heard no noise and had a comfortable nights sleep).
On our way to the Middle east, the ground handling services at Brussels airport decided to go on strike. Thanks guys! Even better, Lufthansa made us waiting 3 hours at the gate to inform us than that the plane was full. They than got us on the next plane (or gate I should say as we needed another 2 hours waiting at the gate) to find out that our connection flight had left Frankfurt airport. As we had booked business class(!) (and Lufthansa is the only airline providing non-flexible business class tickets) they booked us on the next available (in their opinion) flight; i.e. 24 hours later.
Typical airport hotel
My fiance and I stayed here our last night in Germany, Jaunuary 2005, just for the convienence of being near the airport. It was clean, staff was so-so, considering it is the city, and we weren't expecting B+B hospitality. And since the Euro is kicking the dollars butt, well, it was expensive. My advice is if you don't mind staying in smaller gasthaus, do it.
The Steigenberger Airport Hotel at the Frankfurt am M. Airport was a major disappointment. The only plus of the hotel is its convenient location to the airport itself, but many other hotels offer this, as well. On the downside, the rooms are extremely small and even away from high-traffic areas, like elevators, you will hear a tremendous amount of noise. The walls are paper-thin; I could hear every movement in the rooms adjacent to me and in the hallway. Since this a hotel caters primarily to business travelers arriving and departing at strange hours, you can expect a near-constant flow of feet, voices, and running pipe noises. Needless to say, I didn't get much sleep.
Just got back from a stay at the Steigenberger Airport Hotel in Frankfurt. I thought the hotel was beautiful. It was clean, nicely decorated and convenient to the airport. The hotel shuttle runs every 15 minutes and is very timely. The hotel has a great lobby bar where travelers can have a drink and talk. We had some trouble with our toilet in our room as it didn't flush very well. We called the front desk and they said maintenance had left and offered to change our room We opted not to change as it was late and we didn't feel like the trouble. The next day at check out they said they were taking 25% off the price of our stay for the inconvenience. This to me is the sign of a quality hotel when they do the right thing without even being asked. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who needs a hotel at the Frankfurt Airport.
My stay was a major disappointment. Front desk staff did not honor reservation for a spacious deluxe double, but assigned a tiny single room with view of the German autobahn. Repeated requests for additional pillows and a bathrobe were only honored after three reminders and almost a days wait. The staff of the spa was unfriendly/rude and finally charged an additional 8 Euro for sauna use, even I was a hotel guest (they do not advertise those extra charges). Restaurant service was sloppy at best, had to stand up and look for a server after I was disregarded for over ten minutes. Bellboy did not deliver luggage to room, had to go down and search for him (found him after 15 minutes, he was on a break) to get my stuff. The only nice feature was a great breakfast buffet. Avoid this hotel, there are much better choices in Frankfurt!
Satisfaction after confusion
First: there are several Steigenberger Hotels in Frankfurt, including two near the airport. We boarded the wrong shuttle before we realized we were wrong, returned to the airport, and found the right place to board the right shuttle. (You can SEE the hotel from the airport.) We had arranged a rate several months before, contingent on paying in US dollars or traveler's checks. When we arrived, the first desk clerk went through some elaborate mumbo jumbo about euro rates but was finally overruled by another clerk who honored the original rate. The room itself was pretty special, as were the restaurant and breakfast.
We stayed in the Steigenberger Airport Hotel last August 4, 2003. The hotel is about 3-5 minutes drive away from the airport which was great and it had a free shuttle as well...
My travel agent booked me into this hotel last summer for two nights.The hotel was in the midst of a major addition/re-model.Upon entering the hotel, there was a acid, pungent smell of smoke, almost overpowering. There had been a fire in the new construction. The hotel apologized, but that was all. No offer of a reduction in the room rate.The smell was worse in the lobby than in my room area, so I decided to stay. However my room was next to the elevator shaft, so all night, and I mean, ALL NIGHT, I heard the elevator make this horrendous noise, WHOOP(going up) and e-WHOOP) going down> It groaned the entire night. Need less to say, I did not have a decent nights sleep. I complained vigorously to the management and finally I was moved to another room for the second night. I would have expected either an offer of half off my bill or a complimentary dinner, but I received neither. I would not reccommend staying at this hotel based on my experience. Tony Catanzariti
