Lovely experience, neat airport, 15 minutes drive from sultan ahmet. Very helpful staff, there breakfast is incredible. If you intend to book this hotel, book at least 15 to 30 days in advance via trip advisor or expedia so you can get best rates, don't forget to get the breakfast included package. Go for triple occupancy room, so you can... More

Expected much more from my one day stay at this hotel. Hotel looks very much like a Ibis but bigger. The entire property is in need of renovations as it is very tired looking. Rust and mould on shower floor, peeling paint on wash room ceiling, broken furniture, dirty carpets, etc... I chose this hotel thinking is a good choice... More

One night was all I needed to know that this is the place I'll come back to! It's a modern, beautiful, polished, excellent hotel. It just oozes quiet professionalism. The staff all seem experienced and expert in what they need to do. The dining room is like eating in an expensive restaurant, with tremendous variety, open kitchen, waiters everywhere, attention...

I stayed here for two nights in January 2014. The hotel is located half way between the airport and Sultanahmet, so it's ideal for a short stop over in Istanbul while waiting for a connecting flight. The check in was quick and easy and the reception staff were very friendly and efficient. The room itself was like any other Novotel... More

Novotel Istanbul is situated in a nice place near the airport (approx 12km) and near the old town (12km) but you have always to take a shuttle bus or a taxi to go anywhere. Next to it are several large shopping malls and a small nice town. Breakfast Buffet is superb with a nice variety of food, Staff are very... More

Arrived late in the evening and after a very quick and accurate check in, i could fall down on the bed. Good bed and I did sleep really good during the night until time for a quick check-out. Unfortunately no time for breakfast. Close to airport.

Exactly what I was looking for: Not far from the airport and not that far from the city either. Very friendly atmoshpere and efficient staff. Nice clean room. I was amazed to find out that it was not loud in the night despite of its location on the Kennedy ave.
