Last updated spotting hotels
Madrid Marriott Auditorium @ Madrid-Barajas Airport (MAD/LEMD)
Hotel description: Good quality hotel and conference center, just south of Madrid airport. Free shuttle busses every half hour between all terminals and the hotel.
Spotting opportunities: Rooms facing the airport have a decent view of the airport, though good binoculars are needed to read most traffic. Taking pictures is all but impossible due to windows that cannot open and the distance.
Room information: Rooms on 2nd and 3rd floor facing the airport
Aviotel @ Marina di Campo Airport (EBA/LIRJ)
Hotel description: [no description given]
Spotting opportunities: Hotel is right at the airport, next to the tiny terminal building. The pool is just a few meters from the runway!
Oryx Rotana @ Doha International Airport (DOH/OTBD)
Hotel description: 5 star hotel with a pool, restaurants and bar. Located right next to the runway of the old airport.
Spotting opportunities: From the hotel rooms, you will have a good view on the northern part of the airport, including the Qatar helicopters. When landing from the north, you can easily spot anything from the pool or rooms. The rooms on top of the entrance facing the outside are preferable. There are even more expensive rooms with a balcony, which are top locations to view the movements. When aircraft take of to the north, they fly already pretty high when passing the hotel, especially the jets.
Room information: all rooms on the outside above the entrance
Thon Hotel Høyers @ Skien-Geiteryggen Airport (SKE/ENSN)
Hotel description: In the heart of Skien, just 5 kilometers from Geiteryggen Airport.
Spotting opportunities: No spotting opportunities from the hotel, sadly.
Skagen hotel @ Bodø Airport (BOO/ENBO)
Hotel description: Rooms are available from 75 euro, good breakfast, within walking distance of the airport and harbor.
Spotting opportunities: Walking distance to the airport, there are spotting opportunities at the approach at the eastern side, and possible to see aircraft of Wideroe plius the resque heli at the western side of the airport.
Room information: none
Citizen M @ Paris - Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG/LFPG)
Hotel description: Hotel is located in the middle of the airport, with views on the taxiways. Price is decent for a CDG hotel. You can reach the hotel with the small shuttle train which runs between T1 and T2.
Spotting opportunities: You can opt for a room with an airfield window or a parking lot view, choosing for no extra charge. However, the parkinglot also faces the taxi tracks. So spotting from your hotel room is possible. For registrations reading of aircraft taking off a strong binocular is needed. However, you can always take the shuttle train to go to terminal 1 (including views on the military platform) or terminal 2.
