For those not doing B2B's at OTP - I have just booked the Vienna House Easy Airport Hotel, which, despite the name, is apparently 0.8 miles from OTP and allegedly has a free airport shuttle. Decent reviews on Expedia and with a midnight arrival and 8am flight back to LHR the next day, I didn't fancy a trek in and out of the City and it's traffic. I grabbed a room for £78 (which is refundable and payable at the hotel) if anybody wants to take a look.

I stayed there twice last week, and it's pretty good. The rooms are what you'd expect in a 3 or 4-star hotel, with good WiFi, comfortable bed, good bathroom and English-language news channels on the TV. Breakfast (included) starts at 5am. There's a 24-hour bar.

You don't need the shuttle - it's only a ten-minute walk from the airport terminal, at the junction of the airport access road and the main road - although you might prefer to arrange one as you're arriving after midnight. When you arrive, if you do decide to walk, go downstairs to the ground floor, out the main doors and straight ahead. You walk through a covered car park and an outdoor car park, and then just keep going straight ahead down the airport approach road. It has pavements, is well-lit and is not busy. Walk on the right-hand side of the road. At the point where the airport road meets the main road, cross using the pedestrian bridge and the hotel is right there. The big sign outside says "Angelo", for some reason, but it's the right one.

You can bring the cost down to about €60 if you choose a non-refundable rate.

You don't need the shuttle - it's only a ten-minute walk from the airport terminal, at the junction of the airport access road and the main road - although you might prefer to arrange one as you're arriving after midnight. When you arrive, if you do decide to walk, go downstairs to the ground floor, out the main doors and straight ahead. You walk through a covered car park and an outdoor car park, and then just keep going straight ahead down the airport approach road. It has pavements, is well-lit and is not busy. Walk on the right-hand side of the road. At the point where the airport road meets the main road, cross using the pedestrian bridge and the hotel is right there. The big sign outside says "Angelo", for some reason, but it's the right one.

You can bring the cost down to about Ä60 if you choose a non-refundable rate.
THIS!

I walked it too. Thereís really no need to get the shuttle unless you struggle with a ten minute walk. I walked it off the late flight and both the check in desk and bar were open, I also found the staff very cheery and helpful.

I grabbed a room for £78 (which is refundable and payable at the hotel) if anybody wants to take a look.

nice tip. Iíll probably be looking to change my hotel based on that sort of thinking too (late end/early start).

I stayed there last year when it was known as the Angelo. Perhaps it has changed ownership. The shuttle from the hotel takes a bit of a detour because it heads towards the city centre for a couple of miles before there is a junction where it can get onto the carriageway leading to the airport. Perfectly reasonable hotel.

I’m there but on the earlier flight. Will travel back with you in the morning. Should we say 5am?

Although it’s only about a fiver on an uber.

And don’t forget to add it to the wiki

I got a fairly decent deal through AMEX travel, although it helped having a £200 credit on a £600 spend.

Iíll be staying there if itís non-refundable. Which it probably is if I went for the most economical option just have to set a few alarms to make sure I wake up, donít want to fall at the first hurdle

Could you look on the TP run thread? Not sure if full rules were posted around 7 Jan.

Edit. Cannot copy the fare rules, but looks like the change fee is $300

Fare is (I believe) ILN8T8S4
