We will leave Istanbul at 5.30am. Is it advisabel to take a hotel near the airport that night. A recomendation for a clean inexpensive hotel as obviously we won't be sleeping much.
Most of the hotels in the airport area are 4 to 5 star hotels so a little bit expensive. One option is the airport hotel inside the airport in which you can book your rooms by hourly rates
I recently had friends who had a similar early-morning filght. They also wanted an airport hotel whereas I proposed them to stay where they are and take a taxi from their hotel. At 3:00 AM there won't be much traffic jam (hopefully) , esp. if it is not weekend, and you are in 20-30 min at the airport.
