Airport Hotels for Budget Travelers
Often the cheapest tickets you’ll find online are the itineraries with multiple stops, with at least one extremely long layover. The most convenient thing to do to wait out those long hours before your next flight is by staying at an airport hotel, though this can be an issue for those on a tight budget as most airport hotels aren’t cheap. Convenience can come at a hefty price.
Luckily, there are some airport hotels around the world that cater to budget travelers, and we’ve rounded up some of the best ones for you:
Tune Hotel KLIA2
KLIA2 is the new Terminal in Kuala Lumpur International Airport that mainly operates budget airlines, and anyone who is flying on a cheap carrier is probably going to choose to rest at an affordable nearby hotel like Tune Hotel. Located right next to the Terminal Building and connected via a covered walkway, Tune Hotel costs around RM250 or $59.02 per room, which consists of a TV, WiFi, air conditioning, towel rental, and a toiletries kit. Other amenities will cost extra.
Hotel Ibis London Heathrow Airport
Parking4Less explain that finding a cheap but good quality hotel at Heathrow can be quite a challenge, but just a short, free shuttle bus ride away from Heathrow is Hotel Ibis, the economical option for passengers. Nightly rates start at £55 or $85.65, which is inclusive of WiFi, breakfast, and parking charges. If you’d like to squeeze in some sightseeing before you jet off to your next destination, Hotel Ibis is near the Royal Botanical Gardens and not too far from the city center.
Thon Hotel Gardermoen
Only 10 minutes away from Oslo Airport Gardermoen is a modern and affordable accommodation known as Thon Hotel. Free internet is available throughout the hotel, but perhaps the most impressive feature of Thon Hotel is the daily breakfast buffet. Mineral water, beer, and snacks can be purchased at the reception. Guests are also allowed to use the fitness facilities at its more expensive sister branch Thon Hotel Oslo Airport, which is just a short five minute walk away.
