Turkish Airlines -Free Hotel Night or Tours (Long Layover)

I am booking from Chicago to Rome and then Munich to Chicago on Turkish Airlines. However, I have long overnight layovers in Istanbul.

I have heard that if it is over a 10 hour layover they will provide you with a free hotel room. Both legs will have nightly layover.

Has anyone used this before or have any advise?

Is the long layover your choice ie is there a quicker connection?

It is the quickest connection that they have.

This is covered under FAQ - Special Service Requests. For economy it needs to be a connection of more than 10 hours but only applies if a shorter connection was not available and both flights must be with Turkish Airlines.

If you qualify, I'd take the tour - Istanbul is one of the world's most interesting and colorful cities (awesome food!)

Great, thanks! However, I do not land until 5:05 on Thursday Sept 11 and fly out on Friday Sept 12 at 12:45 I will not be able to do the tours.

I will opt to get the hotel for free does anyone know any good tours I could do or any other recommendations?

I would suggest you read or post in the Istanbul forum since this is no longer related to air travel.
