A new good alternative directly at Frankfurt airport. Not to be confused with the regular Hilton next door, the Hilton Garden Inn is a 'cheaper alternative', let's say. Rooms are modern, well finished, with comfy beds. Amazing sound-proofing means you hear no noise at all from outside, but at a cost in that windows cannot be opened which means you're breathing air-con air for the length of your stay.
Disappointed not to have pool access (only available at the Hilton next door) and the gym area whilst nice fitted out is rather small. Breakfast fine, but nothing to write home about. Staff all friendly and check-in / check-out were very effiicient. Would definitely stay here again when passing through FFT next time, as just a few minutes walk from T1. The 'business centre' sounds grand, but is 2 desks in a small room. Overall, the hotel is functionally sound, and more than fine for a business stopover.
Maybe just a passing blip for this new hotel, but many guests found the lifts very annoying in that they only ever seemed to stop when you wanted to go in the other direction. Best strategy was to jump in even if you wanted to go up/down and the lift was going down/up. Silly problem which they'll hopefully iron out quickly.More
