Frankfurt Airport Review

by web-administrator (January, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) This was the worst exper of my life. I was traveling w my husband and three kids ages 4,2,and 6 months. Our connection flight was completely on the other side of the airport. We asked 8 different employees of Lufthansa to help to call the gate to make sure they held the flight. We had 1 hr and 15 min between planes. The baggage people didn't get our stroller off the plane for 30 minutes and we pleaded for everyone to Please help us, we ended up missing our flight, the customer service ppl told us we had to go back all the way to the other side of the airport...again no one would assist us with bags or our children. We were in line with the cust. svc depth for 2 hours and had to wait 4 more hours for another flight. Ieven took a video of the nasty 3 women at the gate who refused to help, I was crying I was so upset at the time. I couldn't believe how heartless people in Germany ate. I was so happy to be back in Miami. I will Never go there again.

No Access

(Guest Review by Marcels) In Frankfurt now. Have a 6 hour layover. Have been bounced from place to place looking for lounge to access. I'm willing to pay the 50 day pass but. . . If you're not part of Air Canada's mileage program then they only accept economy passengers with a United gold card ; Lufthansa doesn't recognize United Frequent flyer cards (don't quite understand the star alliance partnership) got sent to Sky lounge but they don't take AmEx or anything other than business or first class of 2nd rate airlines. Wish everyone in lounges knew what was going on with access privileges and not send travelers on a treasure hunt. Centurion where are you???

Free shower after the transatlantic flight - a thrill

by web-administrator (January, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(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 >>
