Where is it?

The lounge is located airside in the transit hall on level 4. Lifts and stairs and are available opposite gate 173. The lounge is located in the same area as all other lounges so it is easy to follow any lounge sign in the terminal.

How do I get in?

It is possible to enter using various cards such as Priority Pass and to pay for entry at the reception desk. According to the sign outside no airlines seem to use the lounge at the moment, but naturally this could change.

What’s it like?

The lounge is tiny with seating space for no more than about 20-25 guests. The lounge is basically just one small room with a few chairs and tables, sofas and armchairs, a small reception desk and a small self-service buffet in the corner. The design is quite old and not particularly inspiring in grey and with furniture in red and black.

Due to the small space, if you arrive at peak hours there is a risk there will be no seats available at all.

Food and drinks

Drinks and snacks are available from the self-service buffet. The food selection is very basic and limited to yoghurt, cheese and crackers, pastries, nuts and crips and some fresh fruits. No hot food is available and not even any proper sandwiches.

The drinks selection is a rather standard one as well with beer and wine, a standard selection of spirits, juices, sodas, tea and a coffee machine.

Interestingly there is a massage chair in the lounge, which you need to pay to use, however if the lounge is crowded it might be used as a regular seat.

A small selection of newspapers is available and there is free Wi-Fi throughout the airport. The restrooms are located in the lounge corridor just outside.

Final impression

This is a small, tiny lounge with limited seating, a limited selection of snacks and drinks and a rather old and uninspiring design. It is good for a cup of coffee or a drink, but not much more.
