Needs ImprovementReally poor biz lounge, nothing first class about this lounge. Cheap wine and liquor selection. No hot food other than soup. Basically sandwiches and fruit, oh and some cheese. Service was pleasant.

Needs ImprovementAs Emerald, I was denied access being booked business class on airberlin. Poor.
VascoApril 2017
SatisfactoryTiny as all get out. Nothing to eat but soup, chips and cookies just about. But it's quiet.
AnonymousJanuary 2017
SatisfactoryIt's a sad, sad lounge. It tries. The space is small so not much can be done. Food is limited. Alcohol isn't particularly premium. It's an OK lounge, just no where near a First lounge.

Worth a DetourFairly enjoyable lounge. Quiet. Not many people while my family was there. Interactive and helpful staff. Food selection nearly identical to the BA business lounge.

Needs ImprovementEmbarrassing for a first class lounge. No hot food even during lunch hour. Tiny. The business class lounge has same snack options but is actually bigger and more comfortable!
AviFebruary 2016
SatisfactoryTiny. Food is alright - limited champagne selection and very limited food options. Overall very tiny and sparsely staffed.
Hayk YegoryanJanuary 2016
SatisfactoryTiny and cramped. Quite pathetic for a BA F lounge. I would rather spend my time walking around the shops.
JasonDecember 2015
SatisfactoryIt's tiny, cramped, and very basic.
Wanderful WorldOctober 2015
Needs ImprovementVery very small lounge for an international dept. Food felt stale and limited selection. Very few power sockets. Worst BA lounge I've been too.

Worth a DetourA small, uncrowded lounge that has its own ramp, letting you to never have to go to the gate area.
