Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Rotterdam The Hague Airport.

What to Expect

  • A small, but modern single-terminal international airport with clean facilities and a limited variety of shops and restaurants.
  • Free WiFi is available. See WiFi in the airport guide below.
  • The airport can get pretty deserted at night, which can feel a little unnerving, especially to solo travelers.
  • Have a travel blanket or sleeping bag handy for added comfort and warmth in the chilly airport terminal.

Where to Sleep

  • There are a few benches near the vending machines behind the elevator. If those are taken, try the benches near the door to departures. This area can feel a bit breezy and cold, so have a travel blanket or sweater to stay warm!
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
