Lounge Review: Menzies Lounge Stockholm
Menzies Lounge Stockholm is one of many lounges at Stockholm Arlanda Airport. It is mainly used as a partner lounge by oneworld carriers, but is also accessible for guests with a Priority Pass membership. Even though there are no real dishes, the buffet is decent and the seating is comfortable. All in all, a lounge that’s good enough for spending some hours!
Departing at Stockholm Arlanda Airport, we were looking forward to checking out Air Berlin’s partner lounge at the biggest airport in Sweden.
Menzies Lounge Stockholm got a decent record, so we were expecting the lounge to offer a good experience and we were not disappointed.
Seating at Menzies Lounge Stockholm
Menzies Lounge Stockholm is quite large with different seating areas. There is one larger part with several areas separated by plants and some smaller parts in the back of the lounge.
All areas except the dining area next to the buffet offer high privacy and make you feel quite cozy. The boring view either on the terminal or on the wall is a little downer, but seating itself is comfortable.
The design of Menzies Lounge Stockholm is typical Scandinavian.
All items are a little minimalistic, but as you either sit on high chairs, lounging chairs, sofas, dining chairs or just chill in a beanbag, you’ll always find an enjoyable and relaxing spot at Menzies Lounge Stockholm.
Food at Menzies Lounge Stockholm
When it comes to the buffet, Menzies Lounge Stockholm is just average. The bad part is that there is rarely any hot food offered.
When we spent an hour in the lounge, there were just some meatballs, some hash and pieces of quiche. At the same time, the cold buffet consists of fruits, cookies, rolls, a large choice of cold cuts, vegetables and other items for preparing your own salad.
As the choice is only great for lovers of salad, the buffet at Menzies Lounge Stockholm may not be perfect for everyone.
Anyway, we enjoyed the cold choices and had a very good salad – something I’d recommend everyone who visits the lounge to try! For drinks, there was a choice of several spirits, beer and soft drinks.
Entertainment at Menzies Lounge Stockholm
Tablets to use complimentary, an area with beanbags and a television, a fast Wi-Fi connection and several national and international newspapers.
Entertainment at Menzies Lounge Stockholm was a real hit! We utterly enjoyed the several choices available.
Especially the fast Wi-Fi was a blessing as we had some work to be done.
Sadly, the Wi-Fi was a little unreliable from time to time, but that was not too much of a problem.
Overall impression of Menzies Lounge Stockholm
In conclusion, Menzies Lounge Stockholm is definitely worth a visit!
The minimalistic design with the several seating choices make the lounge look very bright even though the view is nothing to write home about. The buffet, though a little disappointing when it comes to hot items, was well stocked with cold items and the entertainment options were plenty.
As Menzies Lounge Stockholm is located airside, it’s also only a short walk to the gates. So if you got access, be sure to pay Menzies Lounge Stockholm a visit!
