    Top 5 worst airport?

             

    6.12.2017

    Pros: None, maybe that you can find a selection of quite cheap and ok hotels in close proximity (no pets experience)

    Cons: Everything else

    Very bad/few seats for rest/sleep. No power outlets in the check in area. Dirty, even smells kind of bad but worst is by far the cold (December). There is no heating. I found the food very bad but IDK this might be just that it's a UK airport. Coffee was worst in a long time but I couldn't complain to the Starbucks lady. Criticize someone who works there kind of felt like hitting a person lying on the floor, just not just even if deserved

    London Luton Airport

    A vision of hell. All possible space given to shops and food outlets. Hardly anywhere to sit in comfort. Stampede for your gate when it is announced and then you stand on stairs or a room until the airline let you on. Loathe it passionately but an economical airport for getting to London.

    Luton Airport worst experience.

             

    26.10.2017

    Pros: None

    Cons: Far, unfriendly staff, no smoking zone, no sleeping or resting area. Only lounge is 25£ and should be book 24h prior, which doesn’t make sense as if you really need the lounge means that you actually are spending much time at the airport and therefore that it was not expected.

    Have been in over 30 countries and 40 different airports . Definitely the worst. Shameful coming from a “developed” country.

    Pocos asientos y ruidoso

             

    10.08.2017

    (Review by Isabeles) Llegamos a las 2,30 de la madrugada asi que nos quedamos a dormir en el aeropuerto. En este aeropuerto apenas hay asientos, casi que solo hay en la zona de llegada. Tuvimos suerte porque pillamos dos sillones en la cafeteria y ahí fue donde dormimos, aunque con el sonido de la maquina de café toda la noche! ( hubiera sido bueni llevar tapones). Observamos que la gente hacia así: pides un café y ya te quedas a dormir. Los empleados no te echan. Eso si, son pocos sillones, dificil pillar.uno, tuvimos suerte. Y con enchufe para cargar el movil justo detrás! Tambien hay enchufes por el pasillo en la zona de llegadas pero tendrás que sentarte en el suelo mientras cargas. Si necesitas comer/beber hay una tienda Marks&Spencer simply food con bastamte variedad y precios asequibles. Si necesitas cambiar euros a libras para pagar ellos mismos te pueden cambiar. Tambien hay cajeros en la zona de llegada. Para fumar puedes salir al aire libre. Las zonas de llegada y salida mo estan comunicadas por el interior, tienes que salir fuera y caminar unos 200 metros para entrar a la zona de salidas. En esta parte hay mucha gente sentada por el suelo porque mo hay asientos. Si vas en.un vuelo de easyjet ve con tiempo a la pueeta de embarque porque son casi 15 minutos andando para llegar ya que parece que a easyjet le asignan las ultimas puertas, la 1 en nuestro caso, que es la última del pasillo. En cuanto a buses para Londres los hay toda la noche. Aunque compres el billete en Easybus al final vas em um.bus de National Express. Sacate el billete por imternet con antelación y llevalo impreso. Ojo que el precio varia segun la hora, con diferencias considerables de precio. En Londres puedes bajarte en Baker Street, en Marble Arch o en Victoria Station. Si necesitais cambiar euros a libras las oficinas de cambio mas económicas estan cerca de Victoria Station y tambien al principio de Oxford Street. Suerte y a disfrutar de tu viaje! No olvides comprar una Oyster Card para viajar en metro y en bus porque billetes simples son carísimos ( te vale para las dos cosas, y en bus puedes hacer un transbordo dentro de la primera hora). Nosotros la compramos en Victoria Coach Station, al lado de la consigna de equipajes (que por cierto es el sitio mas barato de Londres si necesitas dejar tu maleta unas horas). Nosotros recargamos 20£ y con eso tuvimos para 5 dias en Londres, aunque solo haciamos dos trayectos al dia, algun dia 3, y nos dio justo justo. Las 5 £ de compra de la oyster las puedes recuperar al irte en las maquinas automaticas de cualquier estacion de metro.

    Not as bad as anticipated

             

    01.07.2016

    Pros: 4 hours free wi-fi. charging boxes for devices. clean.

    Cons: cold floor. lack of outlets.

    (Review by smadds) I thought staying landside would be miserable, and it was not. There are lots of seats and booths to sleep in in the land-side coffee shop. BUT you have to get there early. I arrived at midnight and was WAY too late to get a nice spot, but i did get some normal chairs and a table to pass out on. The floor was a bit too cold for me, but would have been fine if I had had more layers to use. It's a bit noisy, but not unreasonable. Lots of people were staying overnight. Other reviews mentioned a large homeless population using the land-side, but I did not notice that at all. There was no trouble with security. Cleaners moved around sleepers without bothering them. Once airside, it looked like there were more seating (and therefore) sleeping spaces, but not many benches or places to really stretch out. Airside is where I saw the charging boxes. OVERALL: not the worst night in an airport at all. Pretty darn good, actually. 4 hours of free wifi is nice. There are not many free outlets, but there are charging boxes airside, which allow you to lock up your device and charge for 30 minutes for free. It was very clean both land- and airside. Very relaxed and not stressful. Would sleep over again if needed, but I would arrive earlier to sleep in the coffeeshop. Or early enough to sleep airside.
