The hotel is a few minutes walk through a shopping area from Merter metro, on the direct line from Kemal Ataturk international station. One stop from Merter toward the airport takes you to Zeytinburnu, where you can get a T1 tram to the Grand... More

Public transport not far: I suggest to go on foot and take the tramway T1 till the end station under Taskim Square, then back on foot to visit the whole Istanbul centre. Large Migros supermarket at close... More

We recently stayed at the Gunes Hotel near the airport in Istanbul on a 14 hour layover. What an Amazing little gem. The room was clean, the hottest water we had had for a while, and the most comfortable beds, like sleeping on a cloud. The free full hot breakfast was amazing with a huge variety of breads and cheeses,... More
