After being changed to another hotel because this one was closed we were advised to phone before arriving 2 weeks later for another 2 nights. We phoned, were reassured the hotel was open, took a cab there only to find it was still closed and we had not been informed.Hotel management does not care that we spent 100 TL on... More

Got there after a long flight to find it was totally shut down apart from two security guards. To their credit, they radioed for a cab to the HI Istanbul City (see other review), but it was very poor that I wasn't given any warning by Holiday Inn that the hotel had been shut for three weeks (technical problems with...

A good business hotel with all modern amenities. Nice and comfy room, decent bathroom, good bed although might be small for a tall people. Does have a good breakfast spread but no restaurant so Breakfast is the only meal you get. However there is a vending machine where you can get savories, aereated drinks, water etc. The hotel has a... More

Stayed at this hotels 25APR for one night + very late check-out. Chose this accommodation just because of price and proximity to Ataturk airport. Once you travel with baggage, have to use a taxi (45 TRY=20EUR oneway from Ataturk airport). In fact, the metro station Otogar is nearby, but hotel is located on a hill, so the road from Otogar...

Travellers should be aware that hotel asked for a TR 100 refundable deposit at the time of check in. Hotel staff are very quick to take the deposit but do not have the clue ,how to refund it.

Dear Shahid T, Thank you for your comments. Holiday Inn's , like many other hotels, hold a deposit for incidentals when you check in. The deposit is not a charge. upon check out it is released. The issuing bank/credit card company governs the release of an authorization hold, and the release time varies according to each company’s individual policies. Some... More

This hotel is only about a month or two old, so cab drivers don't have any clue what you're talking about when you ask them to take you there. My recommendation is to take the metro to Otaturk and then walk from there. It's a weird walk (up this path that's not a road and difficult to find that takes... More

New hotel, clean, staff is helpful, breakfast is free, reasonably quiet BUT: 1. Traffic in all of Istanbul is horrific. This hotel is close to, but not exactly right against, Ataturk Airport, so give yourself an extra 30 minutes in case of traffic. This is no joke - we used this as a jumping off point to get out of...
