Located five minutes away from Frankfurt international airport this hotel is one of the best options for travelers looking to catch an early flight or arriving at late night to the airport. It is a clean, modern four star property offering much more than what one normally expects from these kinds of hotels. It belongs to the Spanish chain of hotels NH that is quite popular in different countries of Europe.
There is a free shuttle running every 20 minutes from the different terminals in the airport, it runs from 5 am to 11 pm. When we arrived at the airport there was already a van waiting for passengers outside the arrival area, a friendly driver helped us to accommodate our luggage and just minutes later we were in the NH hotel, a cozy property with a nice forest in front of it. There are several NH hotels in the area so be sure to clarify with the driver which hotel you are going to.
Check in was fast and very friendly, we were offered a free upgrade to a nicer room that was more spacious and even had a quite nice terrace were we enjoyed the afternoon sunset. The room was very clean, with nice beds and well appointed, including a flat screen TV with numerous international channels and a Nesspreso machine.
The hotel has a little gym, a sauna and a Jacuzzi and even a meditation room. There is an all day dinning restaurant serving buffet meals and a la carte options. Everybody working in the hotel was very friendly and always ready to help us with any requests including electrical adapters or flight information.
We loved the generous spaces to relax in the lobby and the great central garden. Very close to the hotel are multiple paths to walk around the forest, what can be a great call for those looking to breath fresh air and exercise before or after a flight.
It is good to note that this hotel is extremely affordable. Room fares normally go for 80+ USD, which makes of the NH airport hotel a wonderful value for an airport stay. Most of the fares do not include breakfast buffet, it is not expensive to add it. The breakfast is good, offering several different options.
We were in the Hotel during the World Cup of soccer, they prepared in a very nice way the area around the bar with the display of a huge screen where all the games were broadcasted for those looking for a more livid ambiance to watch the matches. We liked the fact that the matches were as well live in the TV of the rooms since we are aware that many hotels around the world blocked the channels presenting the games in the rooms to force people to go to their bars and restaurants.
We enjoyed our stay at the NH, despite being so close to the airport it is quiet. we left early the following day to catch our flight. We felt refreshed and rested after a good night in a very good airport hotel.
