Steigenberger Frankfurt Airport is one of the best airport hotels I have stayed at. This hotel is only 1km away from the airport of Frankfurt (the hotel offers complimentary shuttle service from/to the airport) and only offers the best to the guests. Did you know that Steigenberger Frankfurt is the only hotel in the airport area with an indoor pool? But there’s much more to tell about this place…
I could easily recommend this hotel for both leisure and business. Steigenberger Frankfurt Airport has 40 (!) meeting rooms for up to 1000 delegates which makes it ideal for business purposes. Of course, traveling from/to the airport of Frankfurt can be exhausting. Trust me, a stay at Steigenberger Frankfurt Airport will be a relaxing one. From the moment I entered the hotel, I was welcomed by the most friendly staff. Although the building may look kind of old from the outside, I was surprised by how modern and up to day it looked from the inside.
This is a pretty large hotel and I can happily tell you that even though there are 550 rooms, they still offer a personalized service which was appreciated very much. There are different kind of rooms and I stayed at a business room. The fresh contemporary design was very appealing. The lounge chair was so relaxing… I could have spent hours in this chair reading a book or playing with my iPad. Bathroom featured single sink and a great walk-in shower. Other amenities I liked in the room: a coffee machine and high quality bathrobes. Also, many plug-ins and USB ports. Very convenient!
One of the highlights at Steigenberger Frankfurt Airport is the spa area ‘Open Sky’ which won the World Luxury Spa Award again this year. Usually, spa areas are located on the ground or lower floor. At Steigenberger Frankfurt Airport Open Sky is located on their top floor offering amazing views of the airport. It was great to work out while watching the planes fly by. The indoor pool is top notch and the best thing: Open Sky is open 24/7. Right next to pool is a sauna and steam available, again at no extra cost for hotel guests. I must highlight the fitness facility as well as it is pretty large for a hotel and has high quality equipment (and you can’t beat the views!!).
For ultimate relaxation, make sure to book a spa treatment. They offer a great menu with many treatments. I thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing massage with warm oils… It alleviated muscle fatigue and tension. I suffer from neck tension from time to time and the therapist did an excellent job by massaging my neck in a very professional way. The aromatic fragrances stimulated all my senses… I left in a state of absolute well-being! Make sure to book your appointment on time as it seemed pretty busy.
Steigenberger Frankfurt Airport has 3 restaurants, so there is something for everybody! If you like a more casual dinner, choose Con.nex.ion… It is located in the lobby area and offers small bites such as hamburgers, pasta, etc. They have a great bar by the way with fancy cocktails. If you are into a more classy dinner, Restaurant Faces is the place to be. The chef will spoil you with his creative dishes from all over the world. I had dinner at Restaurant Unterschweinstiege, this typical authentic German restaurant is located at the back of the hotel and offers regional specialties. As it was pretty hot outside, I enjoyed my dinner on the huge terrace surrounded by beautiful gardens. What a hidden gem! The food was out of this world! As a starter I thoroughly enjoyed the green asparagus served in paper with baked beef tongue. This dish also came with mozzarella, tomato relish, shallots, lemon grass and aged balsamic syrup. I enjoyed each bite… The steak I ordered for the main course was excellent but the highlight of the night definitely was the dessert: a red fruit compote trifle served in a glass with berries, mascarpone crème, crumble of cookies, mountain milk and yoghurt ice cream topped with lemon cress. I would drive to Frankfurt only for this dessert!
Each morning I enjoyed breakfast at Five Continents. This is the place where you will find a large breakfast buffet with fresh ingredients and different kinds of bread. Make sure to order your favorite egg specialty as they were really yummie!
As you can read, I’m a fan of Steigenberger Frankfurt Airport. This upscale hotel offers a great level of hospitality. The staff will do anything to make your stay unforgettable. From the heavenly wellness facilities, the great dining options to the convenient location nearby the airport of Frankfurt, I loved it all. Highly recommended!
