We booked this place because we couldn't get a room at the Concorde just outside the airport. The Transit hotel turned out to be a good option though as we only had about 12 hrs at the airport and this place is right in the centre of the airport and no need to go through customs etc.
We were 2 adults a 4yr old and a baby so we got one of the bigger rooms, which we managed to fit into OK. The hotel brought in a cot and an extra single bed after we checked in. The room was clean and tidy but nothing too luxurious. The bathroom has a range of basic toiletry items - handy if yours are in checked luggage.
There is no real restaurant at the hotel but the terminal restaurants and shops are only 2mins walk away.
Overall this place is fine for short stopover (for a longer period of time I'd suggest somewhere else). We all got a good sleep, and had a hot shower/bath ready for our next flight. The best thing for my wife and daughter was opening the curtains in the morning to see a flurry of planes taking off and landing.
