Our advice is to book early, and there are good savings to be made if you book your flights and hotel at the same time, either on the airline’s website or on one of the dedicated travel websites like Expedia.
There is a range of hotels in Frankfurt and vicinity ranging from sixty euros per night right up to two thousand euros per night. It is simple, really. The closer you are to the venue and the later you leave it to book, the more expensive it will be. Today (24th August) it is possible to get a room at the Intercontinental Hotel for 4 nights for €488. But really there are good business hotels within 10 – 15 minutes walk from the City entrance for around 140 euros per night (including breakfast).
On the other hand, you could wait until the show starts and see if you can get a last-minute bargain!
