Free shower after the transatlantic flight - a thrill

Pros: -

(Guest Review by Isabela Dunklin) What a relaxing experience!!! The free showers don't provide with supplies or towels but there is a store just nearby where you could purchase some toiletries at least. The area was very clean and I plan to go back again after my next flight from Middle East. Any flight of 9-10 hrs followed by some common sense hygiene changes your attitude and refreshens you like magic. Thank you, Germany, great job!!!!

Come for the airport, stay a little longer to see Frankfurt

by CdnTravlr (June, 2015)


Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Landside
Pros: Lots of shops, services and no hassles. Easy acess to/from rhe city
Cons: Noise, not the best for light sleepers


I spent a night at Frankfurt primarily to save money before leaving in the morning. I had read that it was a fairly good airport overnight in other reviews on this site and elsewhere and I was not disappointed. Stayed landside in the public 'B' area of Terminal 1. It was relatively quiet most of the night, although you have to remember you're attempting to sleep in the public concourse of a major internation airport. There is noise from cleaning staff and other passengers, some of them seem to arive as early as 4am (if you desperately need quiet, uninterupted sleep, I would just take the S-Bahn in to Frankfurt and find a cheap, clean hotel room). I didn't witness security hassling anyone or even checking passports, but I have been told they sometimes ask to see your ID late at night, which doesn't seem unreasonable to me. In general they seemed very low-key. I suspect if you're legitimately a traveller, look the part and don't cause any problems they will just ignore you. The best thing about this airport are the facilities. I really wanted to try out the showers that I had heard so much about on this site and elsewhere, but the landside ones are currently closed for renovation (I believe that the air side ones are still open, but I forgot to check). Don't eat in the actual terminal, especially if you're on a tight budget. Like most airports, the price of food is hugely inflated. It's much better to eat in the 'City Mall' on the lower level, where you'll save a few euros. Better yet is the Supermarket in the bowels of the airport, which has normal German prices and sells a nice selection of ready-made sandwiches, salads, drinks and even sushi along with basic continued >>

Frankfurt Airport Review

by web-administrator (May, 2008)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) No places to sit or sleep, and the Lufthansa Business Lounge was a joke. Poor food selection and old, outdated furniture and amenities. People literally lined the hallways sitting on the floor waiting for their connections. The only way to get a seat was to pay for a meal at one of the overly priced cafes or restaurants.

Frankfurt Airport Review

(Guest Review) In the Lufthansa/United terminal there is only one restaurant with real German food--sit down only and no take away!! Imagine an hour layover with only frankfurters and a bakery to eat from! I wanted a wurst and the people looked at me like I had 2 heads! So to the frankfurter kiosk I went. The homemade kugle I got from a bar in that terminal was excellent!

Review sleeping airport Frankfurt

by web-administrator (November, 2014)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(email submission) Yesterday my girlfriend and me have to spend the night in Frankfurt a airport thanks to Lufthansa who screwed our flying plans. The experience however was really good. The terminal B is open 24 hours and you can rest on the chairs or find some of the benches without arms and sleep there. Some stores are open all night (Starbucks for example) and police and personal of the airport is always around so you can feel 100 safe. If you need more info, the airport provides a short but useful guide in the information points. Highly recommended Frankfurt airport if you need to spend the night.
