The hotel is not located in the city centre but close by the airport. You can easily reach the city centre either by taxi or by taking the complementary shuttle of the hotel. (simply ask the schedule at the reception desk). The staff is really helpful and friendly. One housekeeper had accidentally broken a make up case and I received... More

If you want a full service hotel with reasonably good security, gym, spa, pool, great views, restaurants and room service and don't mind being outside the city center, this one is for you. To spend a few days touring Istanbul on my own I'd be more likely to choose the Four Seasons or another spot in the Sultanhamet, but I... More

This hotel is conveniently located by the airport. If you prefer to venture out on your own by foot - this isn't the best location. It is a good 20 minutes away from the city. The hotel however has hourly shuttles to and from the main city. It also provides free shuttle from the airport to the hotel. So even... More

This is a great, modern luxury hotel very close to the airport for early morning or afternoon flights out of Ataturk.

This hotel is approx 10 minutes car travel from hotel and the taxi ride will cost TL 12, about EUR 5. Since you must take a taxi, you cannot consider it an "airport hotel". Sleep quality is poor, very noisy rooms, you hear all noises from your neighbours and people chatting along the corridors. Earplugs are a must ! Wifi... More

I have just had a very busy month of traveling and it was nice to come "home" to this hotel. It is close to the airport and great for early morning departures. There is an airport shuttle, but a taxi ride is less than 10TL if the timing for the shuttle does not work for you. I stayed in a... More

I'm not hard to please, but this hotel is just bad. - The parking lot entrance is very narrow and dangerous. I consider my self a skilled and experienced driver but still I consider my self lucky I didn't scratch my rental car. You need to be very slow and cautious. If you have a long or a wide car,...

I was at the Renaissance Polat for a conference which was held at the same hotel. I had a fantastic sea facing room on the 17th floor with a splendid view of the lighthouse and the ships passing by. The hotel is pretty far from the historic areas of Istanbul, but is really close to the airport with a regular... More
