Barcelona - El Prat airport (BCN)

Staying overnight at the airport

Even though there are accommodation alternatives directly connected to the terminals or in the vicinity, not all passengers are willing to pay for one night when their flight leaves early in the morning. Barcelona El Prat is very friendly to spend the night, as it remains open 24 hours a day and some shops are even available around the clock. Have your passport and tickets handy in case the security staff asks you for them.

Where to rest: Most seats are uncomfortable and have armrests, and the floor has few carpeted spots (except for the children's play areas). Terminal 1 is usually very crowded, so finding a place to sleep can be difficult. The best place is concourse U of Terminal 2, where there are many benches with no armrests and plenty of room. It is recommended to have blankets, a sleeping bag and a sleeping mask. You can also enter one of the VIP rooms, which have more amenities, although they close at night. On the other hand, in Terminal 1 there are private rooms, and several accommodations in the surroundings operate shuttle services.

Baggage: The luggage storage in Terminal 1 is open 24 hours a day, so you can leave your bags and sleep easily, not having to check on your belongings.

Eating and drinking: There are eateries in Terminal 1 that stay open throughout the night.

Restrooms: Showers available only in the VIP lounges.

Wi-Fi: The airport has free and unlimited Wi-Fi.

Other services available around the clock: ATMs, currency exchange bureaus, children's play areas.
