I was assigned to this hotel by Turkish Airlines during the overnight stopover in Istanbul. The
hotel is located some 3 km from the airport. We arrived to the hotel around midnight, but all group was treated very quickly and efficiently by the hotel staff. The rooms are convenient, comfortable and clean. I asked for a wake up call, and it was on time, as well as the shuttle bus to the airport arrived on time. The only downside -the breakfast in the hotel starts at 7 am. Our shuttle back to the airport was also scheduled for 7 am, and unfortunately we were provided no opportunity to have breakfast. I guess, being an airport hotel, some more flexibility is needed for early breakfast. Otherwise- decent hotel, can recommend it.

Very nice hotel with friendly and mostly English speaking staff. Lobby is grand and the room are quite spacious also. They have a very nice spa on the lower floor. Lots of variety with breakfast. It's very close to the airport with free shuttle service. I had no problem with WiFi in the hotel.

We had an early flight out of Istanbul, so we wanted to stay close to the airport. The rooms look just like they do in the photos. The decor is modern and clean. We arrived around 6 pm. The front desk person was friendly, but her English was not so great. But it wasn't a problem. There is a huge mall across the street. We walked over and had dinner in the food court. We arranged with the front desk the free shuttle for 4:45 am. To our surprise, so did a lot of other guests. There was a line to check out. They had one guy doing the check outs .... it was a long and lengthy process. This really should be improved. All in all, I would recommend this hotel if you just need a place to stay near the airport.

We stayed at Gonen just for 12 hours as it was a quick business trip to Istanbul. During the day we had coffee with our partners at the lobby (5 cups of turkish coffee altogether), for that we were forced to pay during our check-out the sum of 99 TRL (approximately 45€). Isn’t it a bit too much, I wonder?
Another thing is that we used the service of the hotel minibus to get us transported to one destination first, then to destination №2, then back to the hotel. Our polite driver informed us that the overall cost of the trip would be 200 TRL whilst the hotel charged us 300 TRL. The personnel at the desk tried to be very persuasive showing us their lists of rates. They failed to explain why they charged us for 2 separate trips whilst after the 1st destination we didn't come back to the hotel. In our opinion the trip should fairly be charged 1,5 rate roughly (if to see the route and consider kms). To make a point they even "promised" us a free trasfer to the airport which in fact was included in a room rate.
As for the rest, Gonen is a nice new hotel comfortably located 12-15-minute drive from the International airport. It's rather gracefully furnished, but if you were born in USSR the wooden elements of room decor would remind you of soviet and post-soviet furniture of 1980-90th :) Also if you look out of the windows you'd most probably be stunned with the look of blocks of flats of bearing-wall construction - a deja vu №2!

We needed a good quality hotel near the airport for an overnight stay. Our international flight arrived too late to transfer to Cappadocia domestic flight. We chose this hotel as it was a good quality room, and importantly provided a free shuttle to/from the Airport.
On arrival the room was upgraded to superior and we found all the facilities in the room to be good quality. We did not have time to explore beyond the hotel since we left at 6am, but the proximity to the airport for an early flight was valuable. Istanbul traffic can be unpredictable and the security checkin can be chaotic. If we needed another transfer overnight stop in Istanbul we would use the Gonen again. Recommend to other for this purpose. Not the right place to stay if you are visiting the main parts of the city.
