“Adequate, but there are better choices”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

For a true budget hotel near Ataturk airport, this hotel suffices just fine. The rooms are spartan but spotless; the service is friendly; and the price is unbeatable. The location, just off a busy street full of factories, construction fences, and fast food, is somewhat offputting. But if you cross the road and walk a few blocks, you'll find yourself in a pleasant neighborhood of rosebushes, soccer-playing kids, an attractive mosque, and a parkside cafe. Still, if you really want to enjoy a night near the airport, there are better options. The neighborhood simply doesn't offer the lively atmosphere or dining opportunities of the nearby Yesilkoy district, and the hotel feels institutionally bland. Better to opt for a hotel in Yesilkoy, so you can wander the waterfront and have a good dinner at one of the many seafood restaurants.

We stayed at this hostel on 2 different occasions as we needed something cheap and close to the airport during our trip to Turkey in May 2013. I would have cancelled the 2nd night, but we had left our luggage with the hostel for a few days so were committed to going back. The rooms are pretty small. The building seems like an old office building that has been converted to a budget hotel. The front desk was pretty indifferent to our being there. I can live with small rooms and impersonal service, but what I can't live with is not getting any sleep. There is no air conditioning in the rooms (which we did not realize until check in). On our first stay we were in room 2309 I believe. There was a dog outside the window that barked for the ENTIRE night and we heard every jet take off that night. On our second stay, I asked for a room that might be quieter. We were placed on the other side of the building which seemed to be a little better from a sound perspective. We also did not find much around this hostel for authentic Turkish food or small cafe type restaurants. The hostel is on a main thoroughfare and is about 2 blocks from a major shopping mall. This hostel is good if you need something cheap and close to the airport though and you don't mind dealing with some noise.

I stayed here for an overnight. Despite messing up my reservation dates, the staff was able to help me out. The room is very basic which is fine with me, but there is no A/C, so it was terribly hot in the room. In addition, the walls are very thin. Hence, it was very noisy the entire night and I barely got any sleep. I'd personally only stay here if I had no other choice but it isn't terrible for a very brief overnight.

Great location for airport, 10 minute taxi drive and only 13 Turkish Lira. Everything was clean and the beds were comfortable. This seems to be an old converted office block with big open spaces and sofas on each floor. This was all good and well, but noise carries and we were kept awake all night by people talking outside, drunks coming and going and then the security guard shifting furniture at all hours. Would have been great if there was no noise.

Clean, comfortable and efficient. Good shower. Courteous staff. Exactly what we needed for an overnight airport transit. Restaurant/cafeteria downstairs had decent food.
Close to airport about 5-10 mins aways, and for our very early morning flight the front desk called us a taxi at 4:30am that arrived in 5 mins. Would recommend.

The Han hostel is located about a five minute drive to the airport which makes it very convenient for travelers. (The downside is that it is situation in a heavy traffic area). We stayed in a 3 bedded private room which was tastefully decorated, clean and accommodated all of our needs. I would highly recommend to friends. The photos online do not do it proper justice. The front desk helped arranged a taxi for us which cost 15 lira. Breakfast was included in the room rate which is a standard for most Turkish hotels. Breakfast consists of breads, hard boiled eggs, olives, cheeses, cucumber and tomato.

This is a strange place. It is kind of a hotel type, but you get individual rooms. They were obviously converted from offices into rooms, thus the furniture consists of metal cabinets and desks.

This is not at all convenient for exploring Istanbul itself, but is fairly close to the airport. Has on-site cafeteria-style restaurant.
