Frankfurt is a relatively compact city that’s well-connected to Frankfurt International Airport via public transportation. By staying near the airport for a night or two, you can easily head to downtown Frankfurt and see all the famous landmarks like the Frankfurt Cathedral, Goethe House, or the Main River without worrying about missing your flight, train or rental car pick-up the next morning.

With Frankfurt Airport being one of the most important airports in the world, it’s no surprise that there are a variety of accommodations in its proximity. From luxury hotels, business hotels, and budget-friendly options, you’ll find the perfect place to lay your head in our list of the best hotels near Frankfurt Airport.

Why Stay Near Frankfurt International Airport (FRA)?

Staying near the Frankfurt Airport is ideal for those who only need to spend one or two nights and want to be close to both the city and the airport. You’ll have the comfort of knowing you’re conveniently close to the airport but you’ll also be able to easily head into the city if you’d like.

It’s a no-brainer to stay near the airport if your flight arrives in Frankfurt late at night. Instead of trying to figure out how to get into the city and walking around a new city in the dark with your luggage, you can simply head to a hotel close to airport for much needed rest.

Staying near the airport is also a great location if you have an early flight to catch the next morning. You can spend the day or just an evening in Frankfurt city center, return to your hotel for a good night’s sleep, and then make your way to your morning flight refreshed, relaxed, and stress-free.

Choosing a hotel near Frankfurt airport is also a great option if your international flight arrives in Germany in the morning or during the day. You’re likely to be exhausted from travel and jet-lagged from changing so many time zones. And then there’s always the concern that you’ll miss the expensive train, bus or car rental pick-up time you booked if your flight is unexpectedly delayed (it’s happened to us and it’s frustrating).

So why not make things easy on yourself and spend your first night near Frankfurt airport!

That way, if your flight is on time you can drop your luggage at the hotel and head into the city to see the sights and enjoy good food.

If your flight is delayed, you won’t miss an important train, bus or rental car pick-up and lose time and money.

And no matter what, you’ll get a good night sleep and start your trip on the right foot.

How Far Is Frankfurt Airport From The City?

The distance between the and Frankfurt city center is 13 km or approximately 8 miles. It’s around a 15-minute drive by car or 20 to 30 minutes depending on what public transportation you take.

I’ve gone to and from Frankfurt airport and city many times and it’s quick and easy – quicker and easier than in many other cities!

How Can I Get To Frankfurt City From The Airport?

There are a couple ways of getting to central Frankfurt from the airport using public transportation. But you can also take a taxi or book a car rental if you prefer.

By Bus

There are several bus lines which can take you to the center: 61, 77, 72, 58 and 62 bus lines (daytime buses) and 81 and 7 bus lines (night buses).

By Train

S-bahn (regional trains): Take the S-Bahn railway S6 and S9 lines to Offenbach Ost and Hanau. Then you’ll be able to transfer to downtown Frankfurt (Hauptwache Station).

U-bahn (metro): You can take U Bahn 8 and 9 lines, which will take you to Hauptwache Station.

What To Consider When Staying Near Frankfurt Airport

  1. Location. When choosing an airport hotel near Frankfurt International Airport, you have plenty of options. There are several hotels that are directly connected to a terminal building via a walkway, meaning you won’t have to leave the hotel to go to the airport. There’s even a hotel that’s inside the transit area of the airport! If you don’t mind being a  short distance from the airport, you’ll find hotels within the vicinity of the airport that’s easily reachable by walking or a taxi. 
  2. Airport shuttle services. If you don’t want to worry about public transportation or booking a taxi, airport shuttle services solve this problem. Most airport hotels that are not directly connected to the airport and are a few minutes away offer airport shuttles. Many might have an additional service fee but you can definitely find many that are free for guests to use. Make sure to ask and check the schedule, how frequent they run, and if they operate 24/7. 
  3. Rooms with A/C. Summers in Germany can at times be hot and humid. Not all hotels in Germany have A/C, so if this is important to you, be sure to specifically look for it before booking. If you’re not traveling in the height of summer, not having A/C isn’t usually an issue. Note: if you don’t have A/C in your hotel, you’ll likely be able to open the windows, but it may be noisy since you are near the airport.
  4. Breakfast. Most hotels offer free or paid breakfast (sometimes whether or not you get a free breakfast depends on the type of room you book). Many hotels offer a full German breakfast buffet, while others are simpler (bread, Brötchen, cold cuts, jam, coffee, tea). American chain hotels may offer an American-style breakfast (eggs, bacon, pancakes, etc).
  5. Free WiFi. ​​Most hotels will offer free wifi throughout the hotel but it’s a good idea to check on that if having free wifi is important to you.
  6. Amenities. Hotels may offer facilities such as a gym, sauna, indoor pool, on-site restaurants and bars, or services like valet parking, a concierge or laundry service. Some even offer babysitting services! Many hotels offer the option to pay at the hotel and fully refundable rooms – sometimes at a slightly higher price than pre-pay or non-refundable rooms.
