Much better than a typical airport hotel

This two storey hotel is 10 minutes from the airport and has an extra charge shuttle service that is much less than a taxi! 6 Euros per person, each way; book it through the hotel if you need it ... not sure it runs all hours of the day but it did in the morning. (We did not book it to take us from the airport to the hotel and the Taxi Supervisor charged us 30 Euros; should have been 20 but such is life. The shuttle would have been 12)
We spent 18 hours at this hotel. We had a small but nice and clean room, 111, overlooking the outdoor restaurant. (In 11 hours there were only three occasions when we obviously heard aircraft taking off. Slept through any others.)
They have a gorgeous swimming pool with lounge chairs, a gym with equipment, and an outdoor seating area with umbrellas (see my photo). You can order drinks and food here during certain hours of the day when the restaurant is open. There is also a small bar at Reception where you can get alcoholic drinks.
Breakfast is 5 Euros. Lots of variety. Good value. (We booked the room through one of the agencies we found via tripadvisor and they made it sound as if breakfast was included, but no. Still, the price was right.)
There is a classy restaurant, Concorde, or walk to the street, turn left and there is a good Chinese restaurant about 250 yards away, Miao Xian, if you want different food. Delicious. Both are highly rated on tripadvisor.
Most people probably just crash here for eight hours before a flight and never use the amenties, but we had more time so we did appreciate them. less
