Reviewed 21 November 2009

We stayed here for 1 night on a stopover to break up the long trip from Central Asia to the US. I'll start with the positive: The rooms are decent, clean and spacious. We liked the location so much (in a posh suburb with lots of cafes, and a promenade along the marina) that we didn't even venture into the center of Istanbul. We were quite pleased with the place--until we tried to go to sleep, and smelled the heavy cigarette smoke from a nearby room, which seemed to be coming directly through the walls. The other problems came as we checked out in the morning. Before arrival, I had confirmed via email that the van transfer back to the airport was 15TL. The young man at reception confirmed this when we arrived at the hotel. But when we were preparing to leave the next day, suddenly the price became 20TL! The hotel employee (who was also the van driver) said that 15TL was the price for a regular taxi, not the hotel van, which, if true, had not been made clear at all. He also charged me for a local phone call that his colleague, a very nice young woman, had told me the evening before was free of charge. After this kind of "customer service," I don't think I would stay here again.

I expected to be staying right next to the runway when I booked this hotel in order to fly home the next day. I was surprised to be taken to Yeslikoy (a 5 min drive away), a lovely suburb on the coast which was buzzing on a Saturday night and had a nice atmosphere on a Sunday morning with locals walking along the marina.

There are lots of nice cafes, bars and restaurants within walking distance of the hotel and some plesant places to walk around in the daytime.

The hotel is basic and a bit dated but clean and comfortable, breakfast was a good standard and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

A very nice way to end my trip to Turkey.

I stayed 3 nights whilst on business in this small, "family type" hotel. I booked it as it was close to the Expo Centre in Istanbul, and whilst by the sea, it was only a 15 minutes taxi ride from the Expo, so ideal. The room was clean, if a little tired, but the air conditioning and fan worked perfectly. The bathroom was in need of a new shower as the shower head did not fix into the wall bracket, so a bit of a pain! I ate in the hotel on 2 evenings and was overall satisfied with the quality. The breakfast was standard cold buffet style, and the coffee was good quality and very, very hot.
The staff were so friendly and helpful, they couldn't have done anything more to assist me.

We only stayed 1 night but found the Airport Inn Hotel a delight. Our room was spacious and clean with a view of the sea. They had installed new double paned windows so it was very quiet. Our room looked like it has been recently redone with new carpet and bedding. The hotel was on the water earlier in the century, and is quite a grand place with a beautiful marble curved staircase.
The staff was very hospitable and got up in the middle of the night to take us to the airport.
We stayed there because it was close to the airport, but thoroughly enjoyed out stay. The marina is beautiful. There is a quaint old church a couple of blocks away with outdoor restaurants in the streets behind it. And the little town has historic houses and numerous restaurants and stores.

Airport Inn Hotel review- located in the Yeşilköy Marina.

Searching through the many pages of reviews for hotels in Istanbul I could not find a review for this hotel. My family and I stayed at this hotel in Jan 2009 after booking it based on the recommendations of the Turkey Travel Planner web site for hotels near to the airport.

We needed a place that was near to the airport ( without spending a fortune ) for our early morning flight to the US the next day..My husband also stayed at this hotel last year and found it to be a convenient place in a quiet location.

It is a small and cosy family hotel located minutes ( 4 km ) from the Ataturk airport in Yesilköy. We stayed in 2 side by side rooms. One for us and the other for our 2 teenage children.

We had arranged that they would pick us up at the airport from our flight from Antalya to Istanbul. They were promt and on time for the transfer and quickly wisked us away to the hotel.

We got settled in the rooms and then headed out into the marina fo a lovely walk along the waterfront. There are lovely sunsets to be seen from the marina as well as the hotel’s small terrace.

The rooms were comfortable and clean with amenties such as central heating, TV, hair dryers and a small mini-bar to put our own water in. The bathrooms were clean with shower stalls. Some of the rooms have nice sea views of the marina and harbor.

The thing that made the biggest impression upon me was the friendly helpful staff and owners. That is the beauty of small hotels in Turkey , the helpfulliness and kindness of all the staff and you are treated like a member of the family.

The lobby and restaurant area are tastefully decorated however we did not eat the the hotel. For the evening we ventured out to the nearby Galleria shopping mall shopping center by taxi.
We did not eat breakfast here as our flight was a bit to early in the morning..however I did enjoy a cup of coffer in the evening using the Free wi-fi in the lobby.

I would stay here at this hotel again in the future and recommend it for anyone that has an early flight from the Ataturk International airport.
