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. 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
