Hilton Garden Inn Frankfurt Airport 4* – hotel review

Hilton Garden Inn Frankfurt Airport & Hilton Frankfurt Airport

Hilton Garden Inn Frankfurt Airport is a 4 stars property located in a very unique building called The Square, built in 2011. Hotel is located next to the Frankfurt International Airport. At The Square Building besides a considerable amount of offices, shops, coffee shops, restaurants and the train station you can find there another Hilton hotel which is Hilton Frankfurt Airport. This property is 5 stars, luxurious hotel of a high standard. As you might remember I had a chance to visit Hilton Frankfurt Airport (read more here) a few years ago.

Check out the latest opinions about Hilton Garden Inn Frankfurt Airport on Tripadvisor which, according to travelers experiences has the 30th place among all 272 hotels in Frankfurt.

As I remember I was fascinated and curious by The Square Building when there was only a project of this property. When I found out that there will be a hotel – my first thought was: “I have to sleep there one day.” So I made my dream come true already twice. Once at Hilton Frankfurt Airport (LINK) and another at Hilton Garden Inn Frankfurt Airport.

Both Hilton Hotels are located in the same place, but if you want to get to the Hilton, you have to walk straight and to get to Hilton Garden Inn you have to turn left. There are of course separated lobby areas, but the gym is the same for both hotels. Hotels employees working in both properties are the same, they are just working in a rotating system – once in Hilton and another time in the Hilton Garden Inn.

After you enter the hotel’s lobby, you can notice an older design, but everything looks clean and well maintained. Who knows… maybe one day they will make this hotel look more modern according to today’s trends. At the Front Desk you can easily find information concerning your membership at Hilton Honors program and everything you can get according to your level (Silver, Gold or Diamond). I think that it should be in any Hilton Hotel around the world as we can easily see our benefits. Front Office team is helpful, friendly and hospitable.

Just next to the Front Desk area you can find a little shop where you can get some of the personal amenities like toothbrush or toothpaste. To be honest, I was sure I can get these things for free at the front desk, but I had to buy them for 1 euro per piece. I can understand that these amenities are for an extra cost because of the number of people who are staying at the hotel (just to remind you – Frankfurt Airport is one of the biggest in the world) but I would prefer get them without paying.

At the ground floor, you can also find a restaurant and bar. This is where Conference Rooms are also located.


My room (King Bed Evolution Room) was of average size and I had there LCD TV (in the room description it was written 50’’ but it wasn’t this size – but I guess they are replacing them), armchairs, table, iron desk together with iron, radio with MP3 player, air conditioner, small fridge (mini bar) and a free wifi.

I won’t be writing a lot about a welcome amenity that was waiting for me in my room. I got fresh fruits and tasty candies which were really good. But I had contacted this hotel before my arrival, that I will be taking pictures and writing an article for my blog, so I believe it wasn’t because of my status at Hilton Honors.

Next to my bed, there were two outlets but only on one side of the bed. Nowadays for some of the travelers, it might be kind of trouble if they want to charge their phones and have an easy access to them. In my opinion, the design of my room was very good although the hotel is already 7 years old.

I also had a beautiful view from my room – the perfect one for plane spotters! Just behind the terminal, you could see airplanes. You might not be able to see them on my picture, but I was able to see smaller and bigger airplanes landing.


My bathroom was pretty small, but very well maintained. You can find there cosmetics that I know from other Hilton Hotels, and I really like. The hair dryer was hidden in a typical bag. What I didn’t like about my bathroom was the curtain that separates the bathtub from the rest of the space. In nowadays trends, hotels are not using this kind of solution anymore.

During the breakfast, I had an impression that there is a no such an excellent choice (I would say that it had a standard and usual choice of dishes), but everything that you need even famous Hilton’s waffles. Who had an opportunity to stay at Hampton hotel knows very well their taste. If guests want, the restaurant was able to prepare for them fresh scrambled eggs, omelet, pancakes or French toast. What I really enjoyed were cakes that you can find at the breakfast buffet. If you prefer to have a coffee and a sweet cake for your breakfast, you won’t be disappointed.

My omelet wasn’t a piece of art, but it was delicious. In the pictures, you can see all the sweets that I was talking about.

SPA & Wellness area

At the Hotel, you can find a big gym and a sauna. If you want to get there, you have to take corridors that will lead you to Hilton Hotel where all of these amenities are located. You can open them with your room card.

Equipment is from Precor company that personally I really like.


As I have already mentioned, this is an airport hotel located in The Square building that reminds me of a giant floating vessel. Both, Hilton Hotel and Hilton Garden Inn are located in a perfect place – just next to one of the biggest airports in the world and next to the train station.


Hilton Garden Inn Frankfurt Airport is an excellent business hotel with easy access to the Frankfurt Airport. If you have a morning flight or you just arrived in Frankfurt in the middle of the night, I can recommend it without hesitation. Concerning the prices, I have found stays starting from 87 EUR per night. It is tight and challenging to make a reservation with your Hilton Honors points.


+ very close to the airport! You can quickly get to the Terminal 1
+ very comfortable beds – Garden Sleep System®
+ very helpful and friendly Front Desk staff
+ you can use the bar at Hilton Hotel and add everything to your account at Hilton Garden Inn.


– no opportunity to make your reservation with your Hilton Honors points
– breakfast should be more varied with a better choice of dishes
