“An excellent stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

I'm an unashamed aviation enthusiast and photographer and understood from previous reports that the Radisson Blu was 'the place to stay'. I emailed in advance to request a runway view which was honoured. I couldn't fault the room (485) - excellent size and well insulated. The staff were really helpful and very universally friendly. My only criticism is the lack of signage outside arrivals to mark where the shuttle stops. I stayed for 5 nights and will definitely return.

Stayed at this hotel as near a business I was visiting. Hotel is good overall but the gym is in poor shape - tried running on two machines and the belts were loose, on the bikes the foot straps had been broken. Rooms were comfy, restaurants were ok. The bar staff in the lobby bar were very good. As a watch out only one device could use wifi at the same time which in this day and age should be changed - for example I was online in my room on the computer and could not use my ipad - had to log out of one to get in the other one. Airport shuttle runs and is free and efficient.

Room Tip: There are multiple elevators, for example I was in one wing and had to take one elevator down to the...

As I had a 25 hour connection stay a Istanbul airport I decided to check into a hotel for the day. As my company suggested the Radison I went with that.

The surrounding area for a supposedly 5 star hotel is a real dive, nothing to do at all so you are kind of confined to the hotel unless you get a taxi somewhere.

I stayed I a business room on the 3rd floor, the room was quiet and I could not hear any planes, although if you stayed in a room wit an outside view (mine was over looking an indoor courtyard) it would be pretty noisy! The room was huge and came with lots of free amenities such as bath salts, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, bah robes, slippers etc. the one touch room services looked like a good idea, I ordered room service and a UK plug adaptor, although only the food arrived.

Checking in was a doodle, the staff were very friendl and efficient and the bar was peaceful and pretty decent, free bar snacks with every drink.

Breakfast in the morning was over priced and lacked anything I fancied apart froma fried egg! No beans, sausages, bacon, etc just yogurts, fruit and bread.

The bus service to the airport was sufficient and prompt.

All in all a decent nights stay although next time. Would much prefer stoping in somewhere like a holiday in for cheaper.

Dear Hylandz,

Thank you very much for taking your valuable time to share with others about your
experience while staying in our Hotel.

Given the heavy traffic in Istanbul being conveniently located just few minutes away from the Ataturk airport and highway for many it is considered positively though we understand and fully respect the fact that this can be very subjective.

I was very pleased to read that the you found our Team very friendly and efficient as well as that you enjoyed our bar and the complimentary snacks we offer with every drink.

I have also shared with the relevant Team member about missing to deliver in your room the plug adaptor, we have reviewed our internal procedure in order to avoid a similar inconvenience in the future.

We serve our Super Breakfast buffet which offers a wide variety of items including local products and I am sorry that you did not seem to have enjoyed it. We will certainly look into it in order to enhance the selection and take your vaulable comments in consideration.

Once again thank you very much for your kind feedback, we look forward to welcome you back in your next visit in Istanbul.

Kindest regards.

We flew in from Athens late at night and didn't get to the hotel until about 1am. They do have shuttle service, so we were able to catch their free shuttle from the airport to the hotel. Everybody was courteous and helpful. We got checked in very quickly. They took our luggage and wheeled it up to our rooms for us, which was nice because there were 4 of us and we had 2 pieces of luggage each (big pieces and carry-ons). Rooms were spacious and comfortable. The one odd thing was the shower - the shower was a combination bath/shower. There was a glass "door" but it only went halfway across the shower, so when you take a shower, the whole bathroom floor got wet. Also, the tub is rather high, so you really have to step up high to get in and out of the bath/shower. If you are short like I am, this is a bit of a challenge and a bit dangerous. Aside from that, the hotel in and of itself is nicely kept, clean, and they have a nice breakfast buffet in their restaurant on site. The breakfast buffet is about 25 Turkish lira (TL) per person. Also, their free shuttle to the airport leaves every hour or every half an hour, so we had our ride to the airport and were there in less than 10 minutes. All in all, it was a good stay and served our purpose, which was to be close to the airport for getting out of town the next morning.

Room Tip: You may want to ask for a room away from the freeway/street side.

Dear Mrs Robin,

Thank you very much for taking your valuable time to share with others your experience here in our Hotel.

I was very glad to read that you have found all the Team to be courteous and helpful as it is our aim to be welcoming and let our Guests feel home all the time as well as to provide them a friendly yet efficient service.

I have shared with the relevant Team members also your positive feedback about the Radisson Blu "Super Breakfast" concept and the overall cleanliness being these very impotant focus areas for the F&B and Housekeeping departments.

We have taken good note about your feedback regarding the shower/bath and we will certainly take this in cosideration when a future bathroom renovation will be planned.

We look forward to welcome you back in the near future and until then I take this opportunity to wish you Happy New Year.

Kindest regards.

We had to spend one Overnight near the Istanbul airport and we went to that Radisson Hotel. Although called airport hotel - it was a 10 Minute Transfer by Bus away and the Area arround was pretty noisy (large 10 Lane Road and the Airtraffic). Usually Radisson hotels are 5 tar Hotels, but there we felt like more then just 3 Stars. Staff was not very professional. Finally we can say, for one night maximum ok - not for longer!

I have visited several Radisson Blue hotels in Europe, but this was not quite on the same level. The room was a Business room, but even we were two persons, there was only one bathrobe and other things that showed that it was equipped for only one person. The breakfast was okay, but very crowded. We had to wait for our coffee a long time after a free table was found. The hotel is situated beside the airport and it is a bit noisy. The staff is anyway very helpful.

Room Tip: The rooms which are situated on the back side of the airport might be less noisy.

It's a typical well worn businessmen's airport hotel. The public areas are very nice, lentil soup at bar restaurant was delicious, room was adequate though bathroom needed some work. The shower leaked. Bed was comfortable and even though our room had a freeway /runway view, it was fairly quiet. It meets basic traveler needs. Nice man at check out helped us with our baggage and taxi into the city.
