“Beautiful hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Stayed in this hotel for one night on transit through Istanbul. Its a very nice hotel and close to the airport. The room was clean and the service was excellent. The hotel provides free parking and a shuttle to the airport. I highly recommend this hotel.

In continue to my earlier review. The next day we have asked for softer pillow. To my surprise the house keeping said they are running out of stock. The earlier day we already complaint the front desk manager Mr Yunis about the house keeping for not keeping water and other essentials in room but to our surprise the next day also the same was repeated. Seem the hotel management dont care about thr guest complaints
I will ask the guest to keep remind what u need to the guest relation officer everymorning what u need.

Me and my dad checked in the morning. Pretty close to the airport ataturk. It is a business hotel. The city is 30 minutes away and the traffic can be bad in the evening. The hotel has a good spread of breakfast in the morning. The rooms are good and spacecious with hot water in the shower 24 hours. We had a very comfortable stay and happy with the service. They also have a shuttle transfer to and from the airport ever hour or so.

Room Tip: All good about the hotel

I am right now staying in this hotel. The location for business purpose is ok. But very far from tourist spots such as blue mosque.

the room size is moderate. But very less lighting in room. The lay out of room is ok.
You have to ask for essential commodities such as slippers, ear bud ,shower cap, comb. It is not present in room.
The complimentry drinking water is only 0.5 litre single bottle per room per day. Which is really very less for two people.The management should definately lookbin this mater. I will advise to buy water from outside if u have already book the room.
the breakfast is not worth it. There is no mark of vegeterean and non veg on the eatables. The staff is very unadequte an yiu have to wait long for any dish you ordered from live counter.
Hamam and swiming area is good.

We spent two nights at the hotel in September 2013 and found the property to be above the standards of other Holiday Inns. The hotel interior was a modern design with unsually nice features. Our room was large with a separate closet area and was clean and in very good condition. The hotel appears to be a popular place for business and wedding/social events.

We took advantage of the nice shuttle from the airport and to/from the city. I did notice, however, that the shuttle schedule did not exactly match was posted in the lobby, and that the shuttle tended to leave pickup points 3-5 minutes before the scheduled time. I recommend that you verify the schedule before you travel and get there at least 10 minutes before the time.

The hotel is several miles from the airport and 30-50 minutes from the tourist points downtown (depending on traffic). In addition, the hotel is surrounded by freeways and an industrial/warehouse district. I walked several blocks to the nearest convenience store the first night and was approached by people multiple times. Frankly, I didn't feel very safe outside of the hotel parking lot.

As mentioned in other posts, the hotel does seem very focused on guest safety. There is a full time guard at the entrance to the parking lot and retractable barriers that stop vehicles from entering without authorization. In addition, there's a metal detector inside the front door which is sometimes used.

Bottom line is that I would stay there again. However, if you are looking for somewhere that is convenient, with plenty of eating options within walking distance, look elsewhere.

Room Tip: If you plan to use the shuttle, please be sure to verify the pickup schedule the day or two before y...

This is a fine facility, tho could use some minor adjustments to make it great. The room was large & clean but lighting was not ideal for make-up. It was very comfortable & quiet, but most Holiday Inns provide robe & slippers & safe but this one did not.
The energy-saving corridor lighting was so dark it was almost scarey. Check-in did not have the usual separate, super efficient Priority Club desk but eventually found my reservation..

The staff at desk & restaurant were friendly & helpful. The spa facility was clean & full service including hamam/hamami but they were a little disorganized, unable to communicate when & where so ended up rushing me through (skipping the sauna) which was not relaxing. However the services eventually were well done.

Resturant had a flexible dinner buffet, lovely ambience, great service & extensive breakfast.

This is a terrible location if you want to sightsee in the old city. The rooms are very beige. The windows do not open so the air inside the hotel is stale and permeated with strawberry air freshener.
Food and beverage ( beer 18 TL, $9.00 US) are expensive. Nothing reasonable within walking distance.
Hotel shuttle bus does not run often. No good reason to stay here.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing Holiday Inn Istanbul Airport Hotel for your accommodation needs here in Istanbul.
We would like to inform you in addition that we had a complimentary shuttle service to the city center every hour or two ours as we mentioned our own website and related web side.Also our location is very close to the airport.It is only 10 minutes between airport and our hotel.
We are sorry for the smell in your room. Unfortunately we can not open the room's windows due to Holiday Inn standarts. We need to keep our rooms refreshed with freshers. Also air conditionings help to keep our rooms fresh. We are sorry that your room air conditioning did not work properly this time and cause an odd smell.
Also we would like to say that our prices are very reasonable for a five star hotel.
we appreciate you taking the time to share your comments with us. We know you have many choices when it comes to lodging and we hope you will continue to choose Holiday Inn Istanbul Airport for your future travel needs.
Sincerely
Filiz İL
