“Convenient, clean and near the airport”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

Booked this hotel for our last two nights in Istanbul. Rooms were comfortable and clean, with free wi-fi and nice towels. Breakfast is complimentary, and really, really good. Hotel is about 5-10 min from Ataturk airport, and is super convenient. About 50TL taxi ride into the Old City Sultanahmet (25-35min traffic depending). Always taxis out front of the hotel. Would recommend doing taxi transport, as the hotel transportation services, though convenient, are very overpriced. Would definitely stay here again while traveling.

This is a very good hotel. The service us good. Breakfast rich and high quality. Rooms are very nice and clean. The only problem: it is extremely far from the city centre so it is NOT the good choice if you travel to Istanbul for tourism. Taxi costs about 100 TL (going and coming back) to the beautiful central Istanbul..but it is convenient for CNR expo and airport.

I stayed here as an overnight stay. Arriving late the staff were so very helpful with my stay.

The morning breakfast was wonderful way to start the day.

Being so close to the airport was very handy. One comment was transfers only go until 10pm however taxi was 15tl.

The room was clean, tidy and little things like nuts & fruit made the welcome even more enjoyable, even at 2am in the morning!

Highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is stunning - great attention has been made to the decor and furnishings giving it a sense of opulence that only works in Turkey. When we arrived we were introduced to the manager of customer service who ran through the facilities, speaking very good English.

We loved the facilities, complimentary use of the haman, sauna and pool a real bonus for weary travellers.

The breakfast buffet was also very good - lots of fresh food and omelettes made to order.

It is well suited for transiting travellers, not so much for tourist trips - as it is about 35-50 lira to go to Sultanamhet if you want to check out the old city.

One negative comment was about service - we were overlooked a number of times in preference for Turkish speaking executive types, who we guess are this hotel's bread and butter. We waited a long time for a drinks order, being ignored by the waitress until my husband went up and interrupted her - after watching her serve three people in suits who came after us. The same thing happened when we went to check out, which caused some anxiety as we had to get the shuttle to the airport.

Another comment is that if Turkish hotels want to attract tourists from Europe, Australia and US then more staff need to have fluent skills in English. We were pretty forgiving of smaller regional hotels, but expected a bit more here.

Only other criticism is that the hotel smelt beautiful but our room smelt like spilt beer, though my sense of smell is very sensitive.

All in all a very good hotel in great location to the airport.

This is a beautiful, modern hotel with magnificent decor throughout that you cant stop to appreciate. Staff are professional. Rooms are huge, clean and very very comfortable. We stayed there once then came back again. The restaurant was also quite nice. We were welcomed to our room with a fruit and nut platter on both occasions with a welcome letter...thats a simple and nice gesture. Our room was fully equipped with everything we could possibly need. The shopping centre across the road was great with a nice food court.

Word of advice is be very careful that the taxi driver doesnt overcharge you. If so, make sure you complain to the hotel manager. The fare to the airport shouldnt be more than 15TL. The hotel is not close to the attractions but is accessible via subway and metro. We will definitely be back.

Very nice and comfortable hotel. It is about 10 minutes by car from Ataturk Airport. You can hear the planes on the sky all night long but if you are tired you can sleep in spite that noise.
The rooms are very clean and rather big. Free wi-fi is available in the rooms.
The buffet breakfast is great with a lot of delights from Turkish and international cuisine.
There is a huge shopping mall just across the sreet.

Very comfortable hotel. The rooms are clean and the bathrooms are spacious and well maintained. The buffet breakfast is suitable for American travelers. Large lobby and welcoming staff. Right across the street is a mall for shopping. They have a large indoor pool. It's labeled 1.8 ft but its much deeper. The fitness center is adequate. They also have two outdoor pools that are nice too.
