Spent 4 nights at Novotel Istanbul this september. The hotel is as always with Novotel good - rooms spacious, breakfast great and service impecable. Only real, however substantial, is hotel location. It is 20 minutes drive from the city centre and located at a main road meaning you only can leave the hotel by car .

Helpful check in staff. Pushy restaurant staff who can't wait to have order placed and at end of meal rush to take plates away ..... Bed right next to bathroom gives constant slight uremic odor which can be overcome by opening window wide. Cleanliness of bathroom could be improved soon. Pillows worn out and for some reason I felt itchy... More

This is a good hotel for an overnight before/after catching a flight. Not if you are on vacation and want to be close to the attractions. It is very clean, has a great buffet breakfast. Good sizes room with really large bathroom.

After staying 8 nights at the Ibis we thought it is time to get out from there and find a larger decent room where the toilet is not overlooking the bed. We moved to the Novotel and liked it a lot. Rooms are much bigger and nicer, clean and decent. Smells better. It is a four star hotel so there... More
