This is my second time around, traveling for business in the SAW airport area. I always choose apartment hotels over hotels, it gives me more freedom. The suites here are good sized with a balcony looking over Pendik Park and the sea and a nice pool. Staff is friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi connection excellent. It is about 2 km from the marina, with free parking under 3 hrs I believe, many shops, well stocked supermarket and a food court where you can enjoy anything from just tea or coffee to excellent meals, with sea view. The kitchen is fairly well equipped, with dishwasher that the housekeeping staff starts for you, and a washer... perhaps lacking in some cooking utensils, such as good cutting knives... no can opener, no coffee maker, just an electric kettle, so for coffee drinkers like myself, either you settle for instant, or you bring your own little percolator, like I did! Housekeeping done and bath linen changed everyday but Sundays, bed linen changed only once a week. Never managed to figure out how the TV works, but I don't watch much TV. Last time I could see many channels, all in Turkish, so I gave up watching, this time it seems only one channel is available. Also, the last time there was a TV in the bedroom as well, not this time... maybe the previous guest stole it?! I probably will come back for business again, and I will come back here. This may not be ideal for those who come to Istanbul to visit the touristic attractions. The photos on their website are accurate.
