In August, my international flight leaves out of Malpensa Airport at 6:30am. For the night before departure, I have booked a room at the "First Hotel" www.firsthotel.it Has anyone stayed there before? I am traveling solo and my first time to Europe. I'll be arriving there from Switzerland (or Como) via bus to Malpensa Airport and then using the hotel's airport shuttle service to the hotel. I will have to take a cab back to the terminal in the morning as the hotel shuttle does not run at 4am.
Also, I will be transferring through Dublin and Brussels. Do any of the three airport have smoking lounges inside of the security area?
