The staff are really supportive and not friendly, not sure if they have learned the basic hotel hospitality of welcoming a guest. Housekeeping and room service don't speak english yet, they are still rude when speaking with The Hotel location is really far from everything, you can find easily same or better hotel next to airport with good nearby cafes...

I stayed at this hotel for a 13 hour layover. I chose it for the free shuttle to and from the airport. Overall I was pleased with the choice. Before I arrived, the website advised to call in to book the free shuttle. I called but it wasn't necessary. The shuttle timetable is on the hotel website and I managed... More

The free shuttle from Ataturk Airport operates half-hourly, and leaves from just outside International Arrivals (don't be taken in by official-looking touts offering to take you there for 150TL!). The staff were welcoming, helpful and cheerful. The room was comfortable and very provisioned. Room service was exemplary - gorgeous, beautifully presented food. The gym is very well equipped for a... More

Found this hotel on Tripadvisor when Turkish Airlines left us without a hotel for the night. We were desparate so we didn't expect much. We were very pleasantly surprised. Great service from the front desk and the rooms were nice. Our only challange was finding English TV stations :) Breakfast buffet was very good as well.

After a twelve hour flight from Chicago, we're outside in the heat, going up and down the sidewalk where the shuttles are parked, looking. Finally someone tells us that the hotels have posters up where their shuttle will be, but our hotel has none. Finally we take a cab. An uneventful layover night at an unremarkable hotel. In the am,... More

Old and dated, terrible service, terrible unreliable WiFi, unhelpful staff. I booked and prepaid a room at the Wow Istanbul hotel which is supposedly "5 star". They have a neighboring hotel called the "WOW Istanbul" which is "4 star". Despite prebooking and prepaying for the "Istanbul" they stiffed us with the "Airport". To add insult to injury the hotel staff... More

Wow Istanbul hotel was amazing. Staff nice and kind, even very early in the morning. Room was clean, looked luxurious. Hotel is 5mins away by taxi from the airport and 5mins by walk from the metro station where you can get easily to the city center.

Stayed here fit almost a week as we had a series of meetings in the conference centre, some of which involved several hundred people. Hotel is a 3.5-4 star with average but neat and clean room, reasonable breakfast and nice gym/pool area.
