This is very much budget, but does the job if you have an early flight. Bathroom is pretty ridiculous and looks like a toilet from a ferry and for soon reason the sink is in the room rather than the bathroom. Be warned the wifi is not free and ridiculously priced so just walk over to the terminal - it's... More

Was ok accom if you were looking at somewhere to stay just for the one night. Located near the tulla airport it takes about 10mins to walk around from the airport to the hotel. Late night automated checkin is available but make sure you have your booking number with you. Rooms are quite small and the shower is very small... More

Very basic room, no fridge, phone, actually there's nothing. It's a little prefab box stacked on another prefab box. The location is very close to the airport terminals, so this place is all about the convenience. Have a quick shower, sleep a few hours and fly away. Seeing as absolutely nothing is provided except a bed TV. And AC, I... More

Keeping in mind the location, the price is fine. The rooms are small but we knew this from other reviews and were only staying overnight. We walked from T3 (Virgin Terminal), was a bit tricky finding how to get to hotel behind McDonalds. Recommend walking along footpath directly in front of terminals and not cross over toward car park. Keep... More

We did arrive very late to the hotel and left very early in the morning, but hotel was nice and clean. The bathroom was way to small and it was hard to take a shower in there. The sink was located in the room. AC was very noisy. Hotel doesn't have elevator so if you have too much suitcases make... More
