“Handy for a short stopover”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2008

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.

  • Liked — Very handy for the arrival/departure gates

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2007

Not signposted very well, and some of the staff at the info desks don't know it, but if you need a place to sleep/ freshen up in between flights this okay. Very small rooms, with no room to put luggage (but you shouldn't have any anyway!). Rooms have safes and bathrooms clean, although they DONT give you a toothbrush or anything that would be helpful. Just a bit of soap and a showercap. I turned my airconditioning up to 30 degrees and then turned it off and I was still frozen as an iceblock! so remember to pack and extra set of travel socks!
In truth, the hourly rates are good if you are desperate for a rest/shower, but if you stay a lot longer like 12 hours, it is cheaper to go out and stay somwhere close like the concorde that includes breakfast. But like I said, perfect for a quick rest and refreshen up. Oh - plane spotters and kids should like looking out the window, straight onto the tarmac at the planes.

  • Liked — Location and convenience
  • Disliked — overpriced if staying over 6 hours.
