If you arrive to Istanbul via Atatürk or by car, then this hotel is easy to reach, because it is located on the highway that runs along the coast between the airport and central Istanbul. Still, the hotel is suficciently away from the road to give yo a peaceful sleep. The rooms are smallish and basic in style and amenities. My water heater didn't work and things are generally not fancy or extremely convenient. Staff is routine-level polite, execept the receptionist, who was pleasant. The restaurant is ok, but neither very good nor very inexpensive. A useful place to stay on business for a night or two.
