Hi, I need to get to ISTANBUL DEDEM HOTEL Avcilar , Istanbul from Ataturk airport, i have been looking at resort hoppa who do a transfer for £10.88 one way, however it says transfer time is 90 minutes, this seems excessive and i wondered if anyone else knew of an alternative faster transfer company?

Many thanks

Hi Matty, I think the transfer service you are considering probably accepts many passengers and then stops at many hotels delivering each passenger en route. If you are dropping off people one by one it could take 90 minutes to reach your hotel from the airport.

I would second ResmeN' advice and take a taxi. The price is not significantly different, and you will reach your hotel much more quickly. Take a Google Map locating your hotel as well as the phone number of your hotel in the event the driver is not familiar with the hotel. Get TL in the airport before you reach the taxi stand, and be sure you have small bills (20TL and smaller) because it is sometimes problematic to get change from drivers.
