Gonen Hotel is very convenient for layovers in Istanbul. They are so close to the airport that if you miss their free shuttle a taxi will cost just about 15 lira. It took me about five minutes to get there from the airport. The room was good. It was a bit dated, but the room was clean and comfortable, perfectly... More

I checked into the Hotel on June 29th to June 30th 2015. First of all the hotel was VERY CLEAN and they checked me into my room which was very nice and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and I slept well. I walked around the Hotel and dined in the room with the BIG COMFY COLORFUL CHAIRS. I had... More

The location of this hotel - within minutes of drive from Ataturk Airport - makes it all the more attractive for especially travellers waiting to connect flights to other parts of the world. Not only that, Gonen has what I will call an excellent breakfast, with variety to choose from, all for free. The rooms, as well as the entire... More

I stayed one night at this new hotel near airport on someone' s recommendation. The biggest positive is the location which is quite close ( 10 minutes ) from the airport and opposite to a big mall ' Star Mall'. There is nothing exceptional about the hotel. In fact rooms are not so big and you can not get much... More

I have travelled to a number of cities and stayed in many hotels but staff at Gonen?? The hotel is superb, the furniture, the arrangement and ambience is welcoming, the rooms very clean. The bellman very prompt to the taxi even in rain. The nightmare is on reception. We booked a transit accommodation for early arrival and leaving in late... More

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
