Really good as for the 1st time

by martuss (December, 2013)

Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside
Pros: safe, warm
Cons: too little benches, renovation

It was my first time to sleep at the airport. You must know that they're in renovation so there was very limited space. We came there at around 22PM and wandered around for an hour (several times round) until we decided to take seats next to arrival point. In the airport there are several rows of benches, but half of them is located close to the doors and I was afraid of getting cold at night. Benches at arrival point were almost full but we sit and waited until someone waiting would go away. So this way we managed to reserve 6 seats (for 2 person it's enough). Seats are cushioned but still not so comfortable for lying and sleeping. I read that airport is strongly airconditioned and it's pretty cold there. I slept in my everyday clothes, covered myself with my jacket. It was pretty fine, neither cold nor hot. There is 24hours opened continued >>

First night in an airport and good experience

by labrasa (November, 2013)

Reason for Stay: Connection between flights
Where: Landside
Pros: Clean, quiet, a lot of people.
Cons: Around 4:30 staff wake u up

I had no problems to sleep over there. My flight arrived at night and there were already a lot of people laying on the floor sleeping there ( Dont know how much but might be even 100 people). The airport is quiet and security guys are walking around.

Very cold night

by francescoo (November, 2013)

Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside
Pros: Quiet and nobody cares how and where you sleep
Cons: Very cold and limited banches

Section K is closed now, there are some benches outside the International arrivals but get there before 11 pm (before the last flights land). Otherwise bring an inflatable mattress (many people were doing this, but I was travelling only with hand baggage and I had no space for the mattress). It's VERY cold at night.

Cold and too hard to sleep

by coneyisland (April, 2012)

Reason for Stay: Hotels unavailable
Where: Landside
Pros: some benches
Cons: cold, noisy, cleaning staff wake up you at 3 a.m if you sleep on the floor

I slept in the airport just for a night. Airport have a marble floor (really cold) and cleaning staff kick off you at 3 a.m. So, if you don't take a benches, you can't sleep in this airport!
