InterCityHotel Frankfurt Airport
Travel Blogs from Frankfurt
Long day of travelling today. Set off around 10. Travelled thru Belgium & the Netherlands before arriving in Germany. Only 3 stops required ('mum I need a wee, dad I need a poo, We're HUNGRY!!'). Went out for tea at the campsite across the roads' restaurant and got soaked in a thunder storm. Looking forward to a busy day at Playmobile land tomorrow. Fingers crossed for better weather ☀ ...
... old rebuilt part of Frankfurt. The city was pretty much obliterated during the Second World War and to find any old remnants of what it might have been like was definitely a surprise! Steffie told me that the square is also where they had the 2006 World Cup reception, which would have been packed!
From there it was a short walk to the Main River, where there are plenty of tourist boats ready to take you for a ride. We paused briefly on the Eiserner Steg, a ...
... start would be to follow it at enjoy the view.
I am now in Holland for a short time to see some friends after first collecting my motorcycle which again has been excellently prepared by my friend Rob.
Now..... which direction...North, East, South or West? The best thing is not to plan too much and let the weather forecast be one of the deciding factors.
... I really call into question the stereotype of German's being efficiency experts.
We waited in the lounge which had great food, some of the best. Turkish Air had a whole buffet station of mashed potatoes and rigatoni! Afterwards we boarded the plane and set off for Maldives. The plane ride to Istanbul was ok, wasn't too bad, but I hope the ride to Maldives has lay flat beds.
... We got all dressed up and then we headed to the restaurant. When we were there, everyone got apple wine and a bottle of water to water it down. I got an apple juice. I did try it though. "Blegh!!" Then we all ordered dinner and I got weiner and mashed potatoes. They gave me a lot of potatoes! We then all headed home and crashed on our beds. I slept at the hotel again that night.

Historical Traveler Reviews InterCityHotel Frankfurt Airport
Good Location to Airport
We stayed at this hotel the night before we were leaving Germany. The hotel is very close to the aiport and was resonably priced. The room and hotel was very clean and the hotel staff were very nice. The parking is an extra 12 euros. We ate in the bar/pub. The food was not good at all but my husband and myself thought the beer and wine were great! Would defintly stay in this hotel again.
Very basic hotel
this is your very basic hotel near the airport. small bathroom and plain room. bar downstairs is nice. free shuttle to/from airport. stayed there for a 12hr layover between flights. Not recommended if you are looking for room service, etc. It is clean and basic if you are trying to save money.
Decent airport hotel
While it's certainly not architecturally distinctive (OK..it's a big concrete box) this is a reasonably priced, impeccably clean hotel located very close to the Frankfurt airport. I stayed here twice last month and both stays were fine.
The hotel offers a free shuttle service to and from the airport, every half hour. This is on a full-size city bus, and it is heavily utilized. Both mornings I went to the airport, the bus was packed full! One night I arrived during off-hours and had to take a taxi; it was about 10EUR from the airport train-station to the hotel.
The standard rates of 150EUR or more would be appallingly high for what is offered, but it was easy to find discounted rates of 50-60EUR online (hint: Expedia) and at that price it is very good value for the money.
Breakfast is not included in most rates (and at 16EUR I would recommend just getting something at the airport instead). The pub off the lobby actually has some pretty decent German beer...if you like the wheat beer they had a good weizen (don't recall the name)...and it's open until 1 AM.
The interior of the hotel is rather bland - think Holiday Inn, but more modern, and with at least some attempt to be stylish if not interesting.
It is hard to find any other rooms at this price this close to the airport. Especially if you just need a place to crash before a morning flight, this hotel is hard to beat.
Great location - InterCityHotel Frankfurt Airport
Great location, directly at Frankfurt International Airport and easy access to the highway. Free Shuttle Bus to the Hotel from both terminals. Very friendly service. Great conference facilities. Very good rates even during Fairs. Cosy Pub with great atmosphere.
Good Food. Very nice Fitness Center.
This is a very good airport hotel. The room was clean and spaceous. It was not air-conditioned, but this was not a problem in October. (Air-conditioned room was available for extra cost). The staff was friendly and helpful. We arrived too late to use the restaurant, but the bar was open for snacks. The room price was less than what we paid for any of the eight nights of our Germany visit.
The main attribute of this hotel is its convenient location. It was very easy to find from the autobahn. We turned in our car the night before our return flight home and took the hotel shuttle bus back to the hotel. We took the shuttle back to the terminal for our morning flight and thus avoided the hassle of an early morning car return.
Overall, a pleasent overnight stay. We would definitely stay here again.
Okay, but nothing to write home about
Been there for a night and a day (attended a congress). Its location is quite convenient to the airport (a short shuttle ride) and next to the famous german autobahn A5. Check-In was quick and efficient and I got a business/comfort room, 3rd floor, facing Autobahn and US AirBase. Given the hotels location next to the autobahn, it was quit enough for me, but I doubt everybody would be happy the noise level. The mattress was old and way too soft, but must disgusting in the room was the office chair (see photo). I sure donīt want to know where these spots come from. Rest of the room was clean (enough) and I had a quite good nights sleep. Breakfast Buffet (16,- EUR) was medium. For those 16 (!) EUR they make you get your coffee all by yourself using a autoimatic coffeemaker. Eggs were good, but given the price Iīd prefer a snack at the airport instead. I would consider to go there again for the congress rate I used (about 85 EUR) but wonīt pay more for that experience.
Only for emergencies.
Grim (although clean) and not even good value. Souless. No room service to speak of so BYO.
Good deal close to the airport
If you are looking for something close to the airport, but don't want to spend a fortune, this is a good choice. I have stayed here 8 times on my out of Germany when I wanted a place close to the airport for an early morning flight. It is sort of a budget/business hotel. Clientele tends to be a large proportion of tourists on there way out of Germany and a lot of US servicemen or contractors for the airbase across the street. It is located on the southeast side of the Frankfurt airport's airfield, but I haven't any significant airplane noise.
Service is ok and English is spoken by all. The rooms are clean, bright and comfortable. The decor is a kind of funky corporate modern (you won't find local flavor if that is what you are looking for). Wireless access is available. The restaurant has a buffet or you can order from the menu. The buffet is nothing to rave about, but it is plentiful, more or less American style food choices. Free shuttle to/from the airport.
Small bar with snacks, light meals. In the summer they have a "beergarden" on the lawn in front of the hotel.
What a find!
Stayed there during a recent lay-over. What a find!
Very easy to get to from the German Autobahn, quiet location, crisp comfortable rooms, impressive dinner buffet, caring staff and last not least - a free shuttle bus to the airport.
An excellent value - highly recommended!
Stayed here the night before a flight home to the US.. very clean, comfortable hotel. Its quite basic, but it beats the alternative of having to try and rush to the airport from other areas in the morning!
Be advised.. there is NOTHING to do near the hotel. You would need to go to the airport, then take the train into town for activities.
The buffet dinner was quite good!
I would reccommend!!
