Room was spacious, well appointed, very clean. Buffet breakfast was outstanding. Shuttle to airport runs every hour. Service is excellent. Price is very attractive. If you are looking for a place to stay the night before catching a plane at airport, you could not do better than the Gonen.

The staff are so friendly and helpful. The room is great the hotel has everything you need. We booked here as best value compared to other hotels if this standard. We would recommend it. Disappointing the outdoor pool wasn't open when it is 25 degrees. ..but bottle of red and fruit basket in our room made us feel good!

As I had an early departure, I wanted a hotel close to the Ataturk Airport. I booked through Hotwire and lucked out with this 5 star hotel. Unlike a Hotwire booking at the beginning of my time in Turkey (at an entirely different hotel in Sultanahmet), I was not put in a less desirable room because I was paying a... More

This hotel is not your typical airport hotel. It's quite lovely with a caring staff. Other reviewers said the transfers were iffy so we contacted the hotel ahead of our visit and chose to have them do a private pick up and return for 30€. They were at the very chaotic airport waiting for us with a sign. Return was... More

We have stayed for 3 nights and 4 days. The reason why we chose this hotel was that it is close to Ataturk airport and they promote a free shuttle to and from hotel. We had a really long journey and were so tired. We could not see any shuttle stop or shuttle from the hotel. No sign. Nothing. We... More

I booked a room for 1 night at a very cheap rate through the hotel's website. The reservation was prepaid with the credit card and a confirmation email was sent, along with the confirmation number. The next day, just prior to board to Istanbul I receive an email from the hotel canceling my reservation, without giving reasons. I immediately called... More

I have stayed in this hotel on many occasions because of layovers in Istanbul. This year was different. They used to have the most accommodating shuttle service even offering transportation for early morning flights. That is gone and the taxi drivers don't even turn on their meters so you are at their whim. Do not pay more than 20 lira.... More

I stay in this hotel every 6 months. No changes seen in these 2 years. I'm a pilot coming here for company business. Very normal services, too noisy due to the airport. Mostly Arabs guests comes here for medical orthopedics! It's nice for a quick shop from the front outlet mall. Polite personnel, clean rooms, slow internet,etc.

We were accommodated in this hotel by the airline due to snow storm in Istanbul. We only stopped in this hotel for 1 night, and was able to get a return flight home the next day. Check in was easy, and the staff were very pleasant. We went to the restaurant and the staff were helpful. The selection of food... More
