This is my review of Luxx Lounge, Frankfurt Airport. We passed through Frankfurt the other day on a connection from Baltimore to Dubrovnik. I was really dreading the long layover but the departure was delayed so much, that we only had a couple of hours to spend at the lounge. I am an American Express Platinum card holder, and as such, have access to all Priority Pass Lounges including Luxx Lounge at Frankfurt Airport.
The Luxx Lounge is located airside in Terminal 1 between B and C. First off, I would rather relax airside but the only other Priority Pass lounge is in a different terminal which airport staff advised against. I have been to several lounges around the world and would rate it as ok. The best part was the receptionist who helped my daughter leave a love note for her daddy, who happened to be coming through the next day. The lounge is very boring for kids but thank goodness for iPads.
The lounge is split into three main areas. The front area that is supposed to be quiet (one guy obviously didn’t read or care about the no cell phone signs). The middle area has the food and two tables for seating. The third part is in the rear with more comfy seats. There aren’t enough receptacles in the back room so we sat in the front quiet area. Another thing I disliked was that there are only two toilets – one each for men and women. It is certainly not enough for the amount of customers they have coming though. Later on I found out that if the showers are not occupied (which they were frequently), you can use any of the toilets in the shower rooms. They have two shower rooms which you need to request a key from the staff.
The food was ok. We arrived after breakfast and before lunch. There were a few pastries and some fresh fruit but not much else to eat. Later there were lots of frankfurters, rolls, a small crudités selection and some more fruit. Maybe they have more selection in the evening.
If you are looking for a quiet place to relax and have a drink between flights – it’s a great place.
