Lounge Review: Hugo Junkers Lounge Berlin
Hugo Junkers Lounge Berlin Schönefeld is the only lounge at Berlin’s second biggest airport. Honestly, I was surprised that there is any lounge at Berlin Schönefeld Airport as the airport is mainly used by low cost carriers and has a very bad infrastructure in total. However, the Hugo Junkers Lounge Berlin Schönefeld is also one of these lounges which is definitely not worth a visit.
After having experienced several different Priority Pass lounges in Europe in the past, I don’t expect much from the lounges anymore. The Hugo Junkers Lounge Berlin Schönefeld was even more disappointing than expected anyway.
After skipping breakfast at our hotel, we opted for a little snack in the morning prior our flight to Barcelona. Yet, there was not much we could have eaten for breakfast.
At least, we were the only passengers spending time in the lounge.
Seating in the Hugo Junkers Lounge Berlin
I’ve been to many small lounges, but the Hugo Junkers Lounge Berlin Schönefeld is by far the smallest I have ever seen. Upon entering, there is the reception area and than there’s one small room where also the buffet can be found.
That’s it. The lounge is actually smaller than most gate areas. The seating is anything but spectacular as well as there are just some very old black armchairs and small glass tables. To add some atmosphere, several little trees were spread.
What’s a nice touch at the Hugo Junkers Lounge Berlin Schönefeld are the nice views of the tarmac. Nevertheless, the tired seating is just one disappointing fact about the Priority Pass lounge.
Buffet at the Hugo Junkers Lounge Berlin
The only things to eat available were prepacked sandwiches (not real sandwiches, but rather wasa sandwiches which are good for several weeks) and some cake, which you can buy in the supermarket.
Besides that, there are some soft drinks, juices and an average coffee machine.
The only thing really good at the buffet of the Hugo Junkers Lounge Berlin is the selection of alcohol, but who needs a drink at 7 am?
Entertainment in the Hugo Junkers Lounge Berlin
While I had fun mocking the television in the Hugo Junkers Lounge Berlin Schönefeld, which was at least 15 years old, the other entertainment options were actually quite nice.
There was a wide range of German and international newspapers available together with some magazines. Moreover, the Wi-Fi connection was fast and reliable.
Bottom line Hugo Junkers Lounge Berlin
If you got access anyway or got a Priorty Pass with unlimited entries, you can pay the Hugo Junkers Lounge Berlin Schönefeld a visit for the nice selection of newspapers, the good Wi-Fi and the nice views.
Other than that, I can just recommend to skip the lounge as you’ll definitely find something better to eat at the airpot. It’s somewhat funny, but the Hugo Junkers Lounge Berlin Schönefeld was the ideal start to our low-cost experience with EasyJet!
