Overnight layover guide. Sleeping facilities in the public zone or boarding area
Beijing Capital Airport is a spacious place, with a large number of passengers throughout the day and even at night, so have earplugs or headphones handy. Also, bear in mind that the air conditioning is often strong, so it's a good idea to pack a coat.
Where to rest: Terminal 3 is the most comfortable space, as there are plenty of seats, although most of them are wooden. Those that are padded have armrests. In particular, the food outlets on the mezzanine level have very comfortable benches. Another option is to use one of the VIP lounges (either for a fee or through various memberships or credit cards that provide this service), although these are closed at night. For a more complete rest, there are lounges with private rooms throughout the site, as well as several hotels in the surrounding area. The closest are listed below.
Baggage: Some offices in terminals 2 and 3 offer left luggage services, allowing you to forget about your bags until check-in time.
Eating and drinking: Although there are several food outlets in all three terminals, they tend to close around 5:00-6:00 pm. It is therefore advisable to bring something to eat and drink beforehand if you have to spend the night at the airport.
Wi-Fi: Free and unlimited.
Other services available around the clock: ATMs, entertainment areas, baby care rooms.
Inside the terminals, there are some lounges with private rooms and showers that can be booked on an hourly basis. In addition, numerous accommodations can be found in the vicinity of the airport. Some of them have shuttle services for their guests.
