Transit hotels are making long, multiflight trips tolerable. These short-stay hotels are located within security checks in airports and close to terminals. Passengers can walk off the plane and check into a room to refresh between long flights.
No visa is required to stay over in a given country. Rates at transit hotels vary but are often cheaper than at regular hotels.
Because business depends on a heavy flow of onward-bound passengers, transit hotels are nearly exclusive to busy transfer hubs, especially in Asia.
One of the most popular transit hotels is at Singapore's Changi
, one of the world's busiest airports and a frequent layover spot for flights to and from Asia.
Amsterdam Schiphol Airport
is one of the busiest airports in Europe -- its compact and clean "Yotel" hotel pods
do good business.
