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

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

Very pleasant hotel which I am sure in the summer months must be an absolute gem. All staff very helpful and attentive. Check-in process very smooth. Hotel room on second floor with balcony great views out to the Sea of Marmara. Free wi-fi and TV with a selection of foreign language channels but mostly Turkish. Mini fridge well stocked but...

I´ve read many positive reviews about Cinar Hotel and recommended this Hotel to my Company to stay there, mainly because of the good Location Close to the Airport. But unfortunately my own experience was bad and regarding a complaint I asked the reception to talk to someone but they refused. No Hotel Manager or any other representative was available, the...

I have had an opportunity to stay in this hotel for several times. And it groves on you. First impression was, that it is older 5 star hotel and that is absolutely true, but on my next visits I found out, that it still has some qualities, that brand new hotels lacks.
