Stay here about once every two years 6/7 times in total. Great location for the airport but about a 30/45min taxi ride into the golden horn. Staff so nice, rooms good (go for a sea view). Walk along the sea front to great little restaurants. One problem the hotel internet booking is a nightmare and you need to use one... 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. Cinar is not only a refined Hotel in an unusually quite... More

Improvements have occured at the Cinar since my last visit. The breakfast is now in a proper dining room. The actual food is in a bar area, but that works just fine. It did seem a bit of an improvement from before, food wise as well. I still find 15 euros for a cappucino and espresso a bit much. The... More

I stayed there for a night during a business trip. Very close to the Airport - 10-15 Minuten without traffic jam. The Hotel it a little bit old school and should a little bit renovated. The rooms are clean and big enough and I really can recommend a room with balcony to the ocean.The terrace outside is wonderful. Free WIFI,... More

It reminded me of Le Meridian in Panama city. Amazing ocean view, nice terrace. A very good bed, linens were top quality and towels were even better. Since I am extremely allergic to dust and extremely sensitive to noise, I had no issue with my room. However since I had Turkish coffee at 2am, I had a hard time to... More
