It was about 20 – 30 min away from the international airport, and that depends on the traffic,
Unfortunate for us there was traffic jammed and the roads to the hotel were under construction
The advantage and the disadvantage of this hotel was its location, it’s maybe very close to Taksim Street and Square, where all the shops are; yet nightlife was as crowded and loud as the daytime, so sleeping was very bad experience.
The entrance of the hotel was not the best I’ve seen; it was very cartoonish I thought I was entering cinema, very childish indeed.
Our check-in was not bad, bout our check-out was a nightmare, we were among the unlucky people were stack in the hotel as prisoners because of the protests that day, lucky for us we could escaped from the back doors to the airport
No need to say much, it was bad experience overall not to be repeated
