“Good but...”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Great hotel, new, very clean, great beds and the size of the room was perfect. We stayed there for one night only because we had an early flight the next day, our big surprise was that the hotel had information as being close to the airport and with free shuttle service, but when we asked for the service they told us that the shuttle was only between some hours but they had a 30 euros service, for a 5 to 10 mins drive, I didn't understood it as they are an "airport hotel", we took a taxi that charged us less than 10 euros... other than that everything was OK.

Room Tip: Airport, it is not in a walking distance from the airport and they don't always have the shuttle...

I booked it 20 minutes before going in,after "good offres"fm the hotel desk in Ataturk airport.It was 22.20lt and shuttle service finished at 21.00.For 5 euro reached hotel,which was impressive fm the first step inside.Room was spacious as well as bathroom with king size bed.You can choose non-smoiking level and room.Just one minus-in the area of tv panel is not sound-proof.
Very impressive breakfast,even for gourmans-excessive varitey of cheeses,sweets,olives,breads,etc...In the hotel's hall always very pleasant musiv(even-Vladimir Cosma!)and in the public wc as well.Staff was very attentive and pleasant.During check-out procedure,hotel manager asked opinion re my stay and ask to fill evaluation form.For my opinion-one of the best options for the short stay and close to Ataturk airport.

After having done business in Istanbul for more than 10 years I have tried numerous hotels with prices up to 250Euro per night. Elite World business is conviniently close to the airport (with an airport shuttle service), probably the cleanest room ever in Istanbul, very quite although it is located on the main road and with excelent facilities. Breakfast was nice although they could add an espresso as an option. Overall I had a wonderfull time at a price that was really a bargain 89E for a double room. Will return definately. On the other hand if your business is on the other side of town it will be probably to far for you.

This was a last minute booking which was chosen due to their advertised 'shuttle service', however it had finished by 9pm and I had to take a manic Turkish taxi ride the four or so Km's from the airport - my least favourite way to get around, especially when the taxi driver misses the turn and decides it's easier to reverse back onto an on-ramp. :/
The young man at the reception desk - we shall call him 'T', needs some training in customer service. Just because he is busy, unable to multi-task or simply disorganised is no excuse to treat customers as if he is doing them a favour in trying to find their booking.
The room itself was very comfortable and clean however it would have been nice to have been able to relax and watch the news but unfortunately it seems that they only have paid-for movies and I noticed that the 'porn' channel was automatically unlocked - says about about their clientele.
All in all, this hotel was only for a quick stop over so I didn't have the chance to try their food or gym etc... however I would not recommend Elite world Business for a solo traveller on holiday as it is too far to walk to anything and right on the freeway. However I could see how it's popular with business travellers.

good location, near the Ataturk air port , for people who come to Istanbul especially for business.

very clean in all areas, nice staffs, comfortable beds in large size rooms. there is a football gridiron ground close to hotel which is very amazing.

breakfast is the best part of your stay definitely. good selection of meals for a fresh & healthy breakfast.

i stayed in this hotel from 5 march 2014 till 6 march and enjoyed everything.

Room Tip: try to receive a room in top floors and far from the highway side.
