Not exactly close to the airport in my estimation, but not to far. You need about 25 Turkish lira to get there. Don't wait for the shuttle, it runs on a schedule and the wait can easily be an hour or more. It is hard to find the shuttle, but if you walk the length of the bus area you will see the area marked for the Holiday Inn. You will not see it if you don't walk the whole length.
The hotel has a spacious lobby, is very clean and staff are efficient, courteous and helpful. They will change money for the taxi.
The room was splendid. It was clean, absolutely modern and well finished. The TV was good, the internet worked well. The beds were well made up with good quality linens.
The restaurant bar has a very small menu, but it is good enough to sate the appetite. The neighborhood is nice. Istanbul is surprisingly clean.
I would stay here again and recommend the hotel to anyone who would like to stay 'close' to the airport.
