Airport Hotels

If sleeping in Nanjing Airport does not appeal to you, there are hotels near the airport:

  • Airport Sleep Bar – A reader (October 2018) tells us there is a new capsule hotel.  Here’s what they say: “In terminal 2 (currently the only operating terminal) there is a brand new capsule hotel. It’s 260 RMB or 32 USD for a night. They will let two people share a capsule. It’s hard to find so ask information for the “airport sleep bar”. It’s on level two on the furthest pathway to the parking lot”.
  • Pullman Hotel Nanjing Lukou International Airport – (2 minute walk from the airport) The hotel is just a 30 second walk from the Departures Hall, and linked to both terminals. Five-minute walk to the airport transportation hub. No airport shuttle. » Check Rates
