This hotel is still almost 9 kilometres from the airport and the shuttle doesn't come to domestic terminal. I had requested a pickup but no response to the request. Took a taxi which cost about 40 Turkish lira. It is a business travellers hotel situated between exits, isolated on a block of land.
As platinum member I was upgraded however the room contained only a double bed. We waited for the house keeping staff to change the configuration who then asked for "bakshish" a tip for fixing a problem which was a hotel error. We were astounded at the temerity of the staff.
The rooms are clean, modern with stunning bathrooms. But poor service did not match the quality of the fittings. Hair conditioner was requested from House-keeping. but no one brought the items.
The shuttle runs hourly from 6.am to 10.00am ,then every two hours. Despite four concierge staff in the proximity, my daughter and I struggled to load the suitcases into the shuttle bus. No help was offered.
