4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

the hotel is in a good location for a quick stayover in istanbul but it is a bit too far if you want to be where the actin is in the down town area the airport is very close and they have a nice pool I would recomend the hotel to anyone that has a night to stay before flying back to a long distance place early in the am

We had a nice stay at Novotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was comfortable and quiet. Breakfast spread was good. Shuttle service is a boon but you should book an advance. While the location is not the best from a tourist's point of view, it takes some 15-20 minutes to Sultanahmed area by shuttle.

OK hotel but nothing to write home about.
Restaurant has a cool clinical atmosphere in the evening, low quality food and is overpriced.
Breakfast then again is great and reasonably priced.
Rooms are clean and comfortable.
Location is good as far as distance from downtown is concerned but lousy as hotel is built on the shore of the sea of Marmara but with a busy coastal road in between.

Good hotel but location for a tourist visiting the city is too far out. The bedrooms are very comfortable and clean. The gym is excellent and clean. The restaurant for dinner was expensive and food nothing to rave about. The breakfast however was excellent with a big variety of food to choose from. Well worth €15. The shuttle into the city was regular and you had 2 drop off locations to choose from. Staff were friendly.

Nova Hotels was very nice. Free shuttles and free WiFi in the rooms. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Would be great if their shuttle service had later returns to the hotel from city. Breakfast was great, much better than the hotels I stayed in Italy.
The only negative point was that the restaurant food at night was a bit overpriced and portions were small.

If you've seen one Novotel, you are probably seen them all, practical and standard. Service was Ok but the staff at the restaurant had English limitations and we couldn't get a non smoking room. Close to the airport, but far from the historic downtown, so certainly not good for tourists.
