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

We have been accommodated in this hotel during the snow crisis in Istanbul in February 2015. The accommodation took just one night, so these are only very quick observations which I may or may not correct in the future. Hotel is nice, well situated near the airport, quite far from the city center though. Check in was all right, no... More

I have just come back from a two day work trip in Istanbul. I arrived early evening and the staff were very helpfu and polite. I was given a clean and comfortable room on the top floor (11). It was raining heavily so I ignored the running water noise to begin with. However, the rain stopped but the noise of... More

Great hotel with great amenities. Location-wise, only good for travellers who are looking for a short stay or waiting for a really long transit flight. Not accessible to other tourist attractions, however, there was a shopping mall right across the hotel if you want to do a quick shopping. At night, there were occasional loud noises from the planes taking... More

First, this is a transition or first night in Turkey hotel. It is NOT near anything touristy. The Istanbul Gonen Hotel is a reasonable taxi ride from the airport on the EUROPE side of the city, if the hotel shuttle timing does not work for you. As you plan, keep in mind that there are 2 airports and the other... More
