My main problem with this hotel is that it's self-described as "near the airport.". The problem is that this hotel is actually situated near the smaller airport in Istanbul, not Ataturk International. And these two airports are maybe 2-3 hours apart depending on traffic.
I would have rated this hotel lower, but 1 star was the lowest I was able to award it. I consider myself a fairly experienced traveler. In the case of this hotel I didn't do my homework (don't make the same mistake as me). Long story short, I was flying into Ataturk and this hotel is really far away from there. Given they describe themselves as "near the airport" I felt misled and disappointed that they weren't more explicit about their actual location being near the small airport. When I tried to cancel with a refund I was decisively rebuked - which I have a hunch has happened to a lot of people.
I'm sure the hotel has nice facilities, but my experience with the hotel was negative. If you are flying into "the other" airport in Istanbul, or plan to spend time way out there, then maybe it's a decent option. Otherwise quickly cross it off your list.
