“Needs remodeling”
Reviewed 16 June 2012

I have stayed at this hotel before as my work book it for me as the regular hotel I stay at was full.
This hotel would be such a fantastic hotel is money was spent on it but it has a worn feeling. The rooms are big , but dark and with a small noisy old air conditioning units which seem to work hard to try and get the rooms cool. The internet is not expensive but not good as it cuts you out all the time and when you try and log back in it tells you you are already logged in. The staff are friendly and the location at the Marina is great as there are some fantastic restaurants close by. The ferry does take you quickly to the Asian side if you have need to do that but this hotel is not close to the center of Istanbul. No pool at the hotel but it is next to a great Health Club that does have a pool and a full gym and fitness programme.This would not be my first choice of stay in Istanbul.

Room Tip: The hotel also does have a free shuttle to the airport which is a plus

This hotel needs some major re-modeling.
Rooms are old looking and the entire building is not maintained well. Furniture, painting everything in the hotel are from the 80's
The only advantage is that the hotel is 15 minutes away from the airport.

There's not much to say about the hotel. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, clean and quiet, and the service is helpful and friendly. There are a large number of restaurants in the marina and just over the foot bridge (other side of the main road), mostly frequented by (well off, middle class) locals - especially over the footbridge where Turkish was the only language spoken. WiFi was 5 Lira for the day and pretty fast.

On the other hand the rooms are dated and fairly dark (on the ground floor at least). The bathrooms are a bit dated though clean enough. The hotel has no leisure facilities apart from some tennis courts. I would expect a 4* hotel in Istanbul to have a pool. The bar prices are quite high, though not a rip off.

The location is good - about 1/3 of the way in from the airport. 25 Lira for a taxi to the Blue Mosque. They also have a complimentary shuttle bus to the airport.

If this were a 3* hotel, I'd rate it a "4", but as it's listed as a 4* hotel, I'd give it a "3". It's OK for a short business trip.

Room Tip: Try a room on the higher floors - you might get a view of the sea and "Asia".

pros: - next ti the marina where all the yachts are
- there is a near by food center and many other seafood rest.'s
- after using the hotel room cards, it gives you a feeling of going back to the 1980's haha!

cons:
- Old interior design, old furniture , rough towels to a point your skin might bleed.
- NO wifi, so you cant do any business or any nothing your all alone without net.
- business center is dangerous to use, slow PC your passwords can get into risk
- breakfast was so basic
- very depressive hotel

recommend: to find something a little bit better to stay in, this is a remote hotel with nothing to do, its really boring and not worth the experience.
Life is too short to stay in a bad hotel.

was my review helpful?

Room Tip: anything away from the main door and looks at the court or marina not the street

Good position being close to the airport (20 mins by minibus) , free airport transfers from 7.00am in the morning.
Reasonable choice in the Restaurant, rooms were large size with clean bed linen and towels.
The Hotel is looking a little dated with respect to furnishings and bath ware, I did find that the suites included in the rooms were heavily stained and dirty.
A seemingly lack of plug points were also a problem. I was asked twice for ID in the restaurant at breakfast??
Wheelchair access was a definite no for all rooms as a flight of stairs.

I really don't mind paying for internet but if I stay in a hotel and have to pay for bad internet this sends me over the edge. When I complained the reception said "yes it bad ! sometimes it works but most of the time it does not !" So I checked out and found a great hotel where communication is what it should be. The hotel itself is in a great location, close to Ataturk International Airport and on the Marina. Its an old hotel but big rooms and as I was in an unusual cold snow storm all the rooms were very warm. Staff were friendly and breakfast good and as the hotel was busy with airline crew and tourists I guess they do not need to attract the business traveler.
But as I depend on internet and Skype for work , could not stay here again

Room Tip: Get a Marina view, close to the restaurant

My family stayed at the Atakoy Marina September 2011. The rooms were not clean, there was no room service even though there is suppose to be. They had coffee making facilities but no coffee, sugar etc even after we requested it several times. It took 3 days for them to provide coffee etc. We booked two rooms, my kids were with out sheets, pillows and blankets for 2 nights. No discount to us for having a room with no bed made up. They are suppose to change the sheets every three days - not changed once the whole time we were there (6 days). BEWARE of the cleaners, they close the door when they are in your room and rummage through your suitcases, unfortunately for my daughter, who hid her ring inside her suitcase that was closed, was STOLEN. We have travelled everywhere and never once has anything being stolen. This left us with such a bitter taste in our mouths and ruined our experience in Istanbul.
When we asked for the police to be notified they said they would sort it out - they didn't so we lodged a report with the police and checked out a day earlier. They charge 4 star prices but provide a 0 star service. Never, ever would we recommend the Atakoy Marina!!
