Nice hotel. Located at less than 15 min from airport on the see side. Excellent breakfast buffet. Room are very good, especially if you have a room on the see. Morning view is just great. Not so convenient for visiting the city. But excellent for transit to airport. Will certainly return.

The Cinar was built in 1958 at a great location. Upgrades and additions have been, however, they forgot to upgrade customer service. We checked around 11:30am and were told to come back at 1pm. At the appointed time we were taken to our room by the bellman who adjusted the thermostat for a cooler temperature. Went out for lunch while... More

The hotel is located close to the airport and we chose it because we had an overnight layover in the city. Stay away from this property, front dest staff is extremely rude and unreasonable. They refused to check me on because the booking said 1 person and we were 2. The front desk was asking for extra 20 Euros. I... More

This hotel retained some of its retro charm, but was modern in its levels of cleanliness and service. We chose it so that we had the option of either relaxing by the pool looking out to sea, or taking in the delights of Istanbul. Although not far from Istanbul, the traffic is so dense that any trip into town takes... More

I was very pleased with this hotel. It is very clean and about 15 or 20 minutes away from the airport via cab. The cab was very fast to come to the hotel for an early morning flight. When booking, it would be a good idea to ask for a room that overlooks the ocean. It is quite scenic and... More

Location, location, location. Anybody who has flown to Istanbul for business knows that if you have an early flight you have to factor a generous amount of time to reach Ataturk airport, especially if you are staying close to the center or on the opposite side of the strait.
