Not the best night of my life

by Clarice87 (July, 2012)


Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside
Pros: It's open
Cons: Busy/quite noisy


I slept in this airport a couple of nights in three years time and it was the same: busy, not too much noisy. You can sleep everywhere, on the ground, on a bench... everywhere, but you have to be lucky to find a spot. I am a female solo traveller and I found it safe, but the quality of my sleep was poor.

2 nights, 0 sleep

by Danimost (November, 2014)


Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Landside
Pros: No announcements, good temperature
Cons: No outlets, no seating, poor wi-fi, just hot water in the bathroom


I had to sleep here two nights because Ryanair decides to fly too late to Stansted and too early from Stansted. They were decorating the terminal with christmas stuff (the 13th of november, please), so working noise was constant the first night. I just saw two outlets in the whole area, the rest were locked or covered 'only for staff use'. The only time I managed to sleep for a short time, a worker kicked me very politely and told me they had to decorate my bedroom with christmas lights, so I had to move out and never managed to sleep again. Don't think about filling up your water in the bathroom. The sink is automatic and only has hot water, so you have to buy an expensive bottle in the store if you're thirsty. There's free wifi for an hour, and it's hard to get the signal. So probably you'll waste most of the free hour trying to fin continued >>

(GUEST) If you are there early enogh at nighttime you can sleep on the benches which are very comfy. Otherwise other people already have the good 'beds'

London Stansted Airport

Pros: -
Cons: -


(GUEST) Currently, an 'airport improvement program' is being effected. This has radically changed the night-time seating/sleeping possibilities from 'relatively poor and primitive' to 'almost impossible'. The small number of available seats are now strategically positioned right in front of the entrances so that a cold draught is guaranteed. Otherwise, you can seek out a 'warmer environment' within the check-in zones of the airport and sleep on the unheated floor. There are a number of 'coffee shops' and toilet facilities available all through the night. Heavily armed (but relatively unconvincing) security staff patrol in pairs at intervals.

(GUEST) This airport is run on a shoestring and hence there are MASSIVE queues each time I fly in there. I do this each week from Norway so this complaint isn't just a one off, once a year visit. The staff are moronic. When asked why the queues are so big...they blame Ryan air...as if Ryan air just landed there without any planning or schedule. It makes me sad and embarrassed to be English when I see how this pathetic excuse for an airport is run.
