Berlin's 10 Best Airport Hotels- From Your Bed to Your Seat

Almost everyone has at some point in their life experienced the mad dash to the airport the morning of a flight, not knowing whether or not you're going to make it. It's hard enough to coordinate the journey time from home to the airport in your own city, let alone when you're in a foreign place with no real idea of traffic delays or time frames. Same too when arriving, jet lagged or simply tired from the travel, there is nothing worse than having to sort out your means of getting into the city and finding your hotel.

Staying at an airport hotel is a great way of eliminating some of the stress involved in traveling, making both your arrival and departure an absolute breeze! With so many fantastic hotel options, covering a range of budgets and personal desires, you're bound to find somewhere on this 10best list that has everything you're looking for for a pleasant stay in the city- be it for simply a lay-over or an extended city visit.


When booking airport accommodation, please bear in mind that Templehof Airport has been closed down since 2008. Furthermore, Berlin Brandenburg was due to open in June 2012 but has now been officially postponed until approximately March the following year, meaning that at present, Berlin Schönefeld and Berlin Tegel are still open but are both due to close once Berlin Brandenburg is fully operational.
