Last updated spotting hotels

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!

Room information:

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 Airport, Geiteryggen (SKE/ENSN)

Hotel description: In the heart of Skien, just 5 kilometers from Geiteryggen Airport.

Spotting opportunities: No spotting opportunities from the hotel, sadly.

Room information:

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.

Room information:

Vila Gale Santa Cruz @ Madeira Airport (FNC/LPMA)

Hotel description: Very good quality hotel with breakfast only, half board or even all inclusive. Hotel features several extras including a large outdoor pool, restaurants and a nearby golf course. Location is in the center or Santa Cruz, right next to the airport.

Spotting opportunities: The hotel is situated right next to the approach. The airport is on high ground which means the hotel does not offer views onto the airport, but all aircraft approaching from the south come right in front of the hotel. All sea view rooms offer good views, but perhaps the best spotting is simply from the large infinity pool!

Room information: All sea view rooms
