The truth is, a trip to Istanbul is not about the Hotel. You need something comfortable and convenient. That's what Novotel Istanbul is... comfortable and convenient. Get there: Take a taxi from Ataturk airport. This should cost in the region of 30 to 35 Tr. The room: Costs around 70€ for a twin single. Its rather comfortable with a separate... More

Novotels are always reliable, and this property is no exception. Location is a bit far from the happening places like Sultanahmet and Taksim square, but the Hotel shuttle really helps.No shops / bars / cafés in reasonable walking distance worth going to. Room was above expectation, spacious, very clean, nespresso machine, well stocked mini bar. A centre table probably was... More

Quite a ways away but nice rooms as expected of the brand. Loved the buffet breakfast. Location a bit far from where i wanted to be but they provide free shuttle services to the must see spots. I had a standard smoking room on one of the higher floors. It was good but you could sometimes still hear the prayers... More

Our 2 night stay here was just as enjoyable as our first stay 5years ago. That's because the service at this hotel is excellent. From the first greeting, to the housekeeping staff and the restaurant staff in particular, are all amazing. There is a great pool and the gym is excellent too. This hotel is great if you require quick... More

I stay here quite frequently usually when transiting through Istanbul. If you're transiting this place is better than most of the other hotels in the area. However, if you're going to do sightseeing in Istanbul I would stay downtown near the centrally located Taksim Square.

We stayed as a family and found the room to be great for 4, wonderful views of the sea and shipping. Enjoyed the buffet breakfast and helpful staff in bar and restaurant. Although the location is out of the centre, it's good for the airport and the hotel shuttle to town is excellent. All round a winner for us!
