The hotel is very clean and convenient to the airport. The buffet breakfast is huge. Definitely have your cab driver call the hotel as it's down a little side street. But it is in a neighborhood with many shops and restaurants within walking distance. There is a restaurant, Ray's Bistro, across the main square, to the right of the subway entrance, that has cocktails, live music, great food, and very warm and hospitable service. Ray's made my night!

Arrived late afternoon to a lovely welcome from the reception ship and the very friendly young man who is the porter. Directions were given to the local center and places to eat. Was a little noisy when nearby guests arrived back at 1 am. Free wifi and early breakfast available from before 6am. They organized a taxi back to airport for a 6:30am journey. All in all a good experience.

Arrived after a loooong flight (27hrs) I was still woozy from flying (and the drugs I need to take to get on the plan). It's a short taxi trip from the airport. I think the staff could tell that I was a bit out of it and asked if I wanted something to eat. They brought a huge tray of food of whatever they were having for dinner to my room - I'm so grateful for that. And for them organising a transfer to the aiport the next mornng. The rooms are really good quality for the price and the bathroom was excellent. Will definitely be staying here again

If you like to stay in a hotel near in the airport Hotel Kuk is a perfect place to stay. The staff are really friendly and helpful to us. The lady in the reception let us borrowed an istanbulcart. She taught us the directions where we want to go even she cant speak good english but she tried her best. If we need something they see to it that they can help us. The room is neat and tidy. The food is good.. thanks Hotel Kuk.

We stayed here for one night on our way home from Cyprus to get a "taster" of Istanbul - a city I have always wanted to see. Our flight out of Ercan was rescheduled and we arrived in Istanbul earlier than anticipated - we had cleared customs and were at the hotel by 7.30am (where our taxi was met by a smiling and efficient young man who took our cases in for us) hoping they might be willing to let us drop of our cases until we could check in proper. But the only comment from the man on reception was "you are very early" and proceeded to check us in straight away. We were then shown straight to our room by the young man who also brought our cases up for us ( a second trip as the lift is rather small). The room was vey clean and the beds were comfortable. We were able to have a couple of hours sleep which we had not expected before our lightning tour of Istanbul ( we had commenced our journey from Cyprus at 2am). We went down to reception at 10am feeling refreshed and the lady on reception advised us that we could get the 94A bus from the terminus (only 2 minutes walk from the hotel) direct to all the main sites we just stayed on the bus until it reached its final destination - so easy - it would have not been any quicker by taxi due to the traffic in Istanbul which is heavy and certainly a lot cheaper - just 2 lira each - each way. The fare is paid on a card which the receptionist gave to us to use and another hotel employee took us to the small shop nearby where we could purchase our 8 lira worth of fares. Then all we had to do was swipe the card on the machine in the bus. On returning to the hotel we returned the travel card to reception and went out locally for our evening meal. We had a really good and comfortable nights sleep and our wake up call was spot on time at 5am and was a courteous call from reception, not a pre-programmed phone call. The reception had also booked us a taxi for 5.30 for our return to the airport - this also was right on time. Breakfast I cannot comment on as we were leaving too early. The only thing I would say is it would have been nice to have a hospitality tray in the room so that we could make ourselves a cup of tea. Thankyou to hotel Kuk and all their staff for making our short stay in Istanbul so pleasurable and problem free

We stayed 3 nights there and it was a really nightmare. Someone would ask why didnt leave from the first night...the answer is that as soon as we arrived the receptionist told that I should pay for the room.
1st night we couldnt sleep because next door couple was fighting until 3 in the morning! we called reception but nothing changed. The man was screaming all night.
Next day morning I asked the reception to change the room and told me that is available one in front of the elevator. I said that I dont want it for any reason, because it would be too noisy from the mechanism of the elevator. Finally gave us a room at forth floor in order to be quiet and so can get some rest (what an irony!?)
As soon as we didnt take breakfast the first morning, we didnt realize early that cuisine and breakfast area was on the top floor, fifth one! During our second night stay, we woke up at 5 in the morning when the "cooker" and the cleaning lady came to prepare breakfast and clean the place.
When I went once more at the reception, they answered that I m very pretendious! It s a strange requirment that we wanted to sleep. gosh.
Lastly they put us in a third room, where we could to sleep like normal people.
Breakfast was poor. Cold boiled eggs, burned slices of bread,called "toast" etc. Only fresh fruits and yogurt were ok.
50 euros for a double room are too much for istanbul with such a hotel. There is no value for money.
If you want to be at the airport quick, just book a good one hotel that you really like, which is close to a metro station. Red line (M1 a &b) goes directly to airport in about 15 min from Fatih area, no reason to stay in Bakirkoy.
