“Friendly, helpful staff, spotlessly clean modern room, convenient for F1and visiting Istanbul”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2011

We stayed here whilst attending the F1 race weekend. The hotel managers spoke perfect English and all the staff were efficient, helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and modern, the restaurant had good food and a pleasant view over the sea (with a road in between and no beach). We travelled to the track by cab, arranged by the hotel, which was a reasonable price and took about 30 minutes. We also went into istanbul for a day, 30 - 40 minutes by cab and ferry.
After very long days out we were happy to stay in the hotel bar and restaurant for the evening but you would really need a cab to go out somewhere else.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2011

This hotel had very friendly helpful staff and was very comfortable. The breakfast was good with a good ranage of food to choose from in a lovely restaurant over looking the sea of marmara. There seemed to be a good evening menu but we didnt try this as we like to eat out in the evening while visiting Istanbul. The hotel is within a 20min car drive from the airport and has its own free car park. The centre of Kartal is a 15 min walk from the hotel and trains run regluarly to the main train station (Haydarbasa) and ferrys cross to the Euorpean side of Istanbul regluarly.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2011

The hotel is about 20 minutes in a taxi from the airport. You need to give the taxi driver the hotel phone number for him to get directions. We arrived at about 8pm and were greeted like old friends with orange juice and biscuits. The rooms are laid out as a motel and were very clean and well serviced. The view over the Sea of Mamara is probably excellent but the mist was down when we were there. The evening meal was good even though we had to eat in the annexe as the dining room was being refurbished. All the staff were very helpful.
