Reason for Stay: Hotels unavailable
Where: Landside
Pros: Be savvy
Cons: Not many

Arrived from Spain at 2300 and had a 9 hr layover with 2 children, 14 and 12. We made the mistake of just finding an space of hard marble by Ryanair check in. If only had I walked to the other end by international arrival where Burger King and other concessions where we could have had a much comfy sleep on chairs

Pros: -
Cons: -

(Guest Review) Early flight so sleep at the airport. I was at the landside and there was a prete cafe which opened the whole night. Me and my friend bought some drinks and stayed at their seats for the whole night. The staffs let us stay. the chair wasnt great to sleep on but its better than the floor. there were only a few public seats and all of them were taken. quite a lot people slept at the airport that night.

An unexpected stay

by web-administrator (August, 2015)

Pros: -
Cons: -

(Guest Review by sawanna) My friend and I were coming back home from a 6-week stay in London. Despite arriving to the airport two hours ahead of the scheduled time we got late for our plane. And, as all the planes for the day were fully booked, we had to take a 6am flight on the following morning. Most of our delay was caused by the idiotic Ryanair luggage limits, but it is also fair to say that the Stansted airport was really crowded and there were huge queues for the luggage check-in and the security control. Also, the distance between the security control and the gate was pretty long, I would say surprisingly long, so that we ran for like 10 minutes at full speed just to kiss the closed gate (yes, we reached that far and failed). Then we had the experience in contact with the Stansted airport staff, who proved to be polite and continued >>

Terrible airport

by Vojtech (June, 2015)

Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside
Pros: Nothing probably
Cons: Extremely crowded,cold,small

Arrived to the airport at night and there was only very few spots to sleep as the airport is really small. When we finally found a place to sleep and was hard to fall asleep because of the general noise and crowds of people started to queue up for their morning flights(we had no chance to sleep elsewhere than by the checkins). After a short 'sleep'(security guards woke us up) we proceeded to security controls and oh man it was only comparable to a tin of sardines how crowded it was,there was no place to stand,not to sit down so forget about sleeping on the airside. There was a construction work going on so it was noisy,an unbelievable amount of people was standing by the screens with departures which were a size of a small TV. There are some shops but you need to queue for everything,nah,dreadful experience,even worse than Luton....
