Sudima seems to be the only hotel near to the airport and so they have a monopoly on the "early and late" passengers. It's unfortunate that they seem to have exploited that in order to get away with the minimum possible to keep the business coming.
The staff were warm and friendly and helpful and the beds were comfortable. But there were too many other things amiss to give this place a good review.
Given the location you'd expect that this place would be full of people who want a good night's sleep - either after a late arrival or before an early start. But it was almost impossible to get a decent sleep. The walls into the next room were so thin that even though the couple next door were only talking - not shouting - their voices kept me awake. The room itself was FAR too hot and so we had to have the window open - meaning that aircraft noise also kept us awake. In fact, everything possible seems to have been done to make it as hard to sleep here as you can.
Of course, the location is absolutely perfect for the hotel - we walked from the hotel to the airport terminal in under ten minutes with cases - but that's the only thing this hotel has in its favour at all.
If you need somewhere to stay because you need to be at the airport when everything else is closed, then do consider it - but even so - it may be worth thinking about getting a hotel somewhere else and paying for a taxi.
