Close to the airport, confortable, friendly staff (thanks Mr. Kamil Karakaya!) nice breakfast and smoking allowed rooms. Its a bit old, but for business trips suited me quite fine. If you need a clean and close to the airport hotel, you should try Gunes. Also, you can find some restaurants and shops around.

everything about this hotel was very normal and acceptable, no special good or bad point to mention. except never catch taxi from hotel door, or ask the bell boy to fix the fee unless you must pay 10 times more to the taxi driver.

Good price pr. night, and close to the metro, 5 min walk. Bad side, there is no reastaurants, cafe´s etc. around the hotel. So it is a kind of isolated. The hotel it self is very traditional, nothing special, but ALL of the staff are a good 5/5 stars in my book. So if you need a few nights, without...

Was booked in here after missing an onward connection. Clean and efficient. Rooms need updating, but were clean and comfortable enough. Meals were paid by airline and whilst i wouldn't expect a massive choice a choice of 2 meals would have been nice. Didn't make it to breakfast as i don't eat it. The hotel seemed out of the way...
