“Basic, clean hotel. Service a little iffy.”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

Ramadas are pretty similar across the world. This one was very clean and the neighborhood feels safe. There is some pretty wood carving in the hallways and a good view from the breakfast room but otherwise it's pretty plain.

The desk staff were nice enough but only one person spoke English as I was checking in. I'm pretty sure the night shift doesn't speak English at all. I asked a question and got a smile and a nod, which wasn't really appropriate to the question. Granted, I was in Turkey and didn't speak Turkish at all but I thought multilingual would have been a benefit of an airport hotel.

There is a little mini-bar in the room including water, snacks and some alcohol beverages. I tried the red wine and it was decent. I ordered room service for dinner one night - just a basic hamburger. The patty was black and so hard, I couldn't bite through it. The fries were good though. Another night I got a pot of Turkish Tea and the dessert tray. That was much better. If you were going to eat at the hotel though, I'd recommend just doing the sports bar in the basement. Very good food and when the communication is iffy, you can just point to the menu. One note on the pricing - it's the only place I've ever found where a can of Lipton Iced Tea and a Long Island Iced Tea (an alcoholic drink) costs the same - 10 Turkish Lira.

The tour company picked this place and it was ok. But if I had a choice, I'd try to find something a little more authentically Turkish.

I paid a brief visit during a stopover in Istanbul and found it to be clean and well appointed. It is not in a tourist area but there are restaurants and shop nearby including a large shopping center. The staff were friendly and helpful. There is a large sports-bar on the lower floor with a seating area outside which is quite pleasant. This is a city hotel and not a destination in itself but very much fit for purpose.

Stayed there for 1 night on a business trip to Istanbul. The hotel is new and very clean. Rooms are of good size , bathroom is big and clean with all of the basic amenities that are needed.

Breakfast is served on the 14th floor that has a spectacular view of the European side of Istanbul. Don't miss!

The hotel has free wifi and is about 10 min drive from the airport. 2 shopping malls are nearby. The hotel is good for business but is a bit far away from the tourist attractions of Istanbul.

The only con I could find is that the hotel does not have a shuttle service from/to the airport.

I would come back to the hotel

ENJOY!

We stayed 1 night in this hotel during our flights to and from Istanbul. Room is spacy, we had 2 single beds and small sofa in our room. Bathroom is great, with a real bath and also very spacy. Hotel has great view over Atakoy district of Istanbul. 3 malls are just around the corner. I highly recommend this hotel.

If you're on holiday and in search of something distinctively Turkish or close to what you'd be going to Istanbul to see, then you wouldn't choose this hotel. It has an international business hotel feel, and could be anywhere. But if you need somewhere well equipped, comfortable, spacious, good-value, well equipped and convenient for the airport then this is perfect. I was on holiday, but this hotel was a haven for an unexpected last night when dealing with a whole day of accusations of visa violation at the airport.

There's a well-equipped, subterranean and slightly inelegant spa and pool three floors below ground. Ideal for destressing after several hours of altercation.

My husband and I spent a few nights here last month. It is close to the airport, Sultanhamet and other major tourist attraction. A short stroll to the shops and malls and local as well as fastfood restaurants. The top floor restaurant is pleasant with a nice view. The breakfast is basic and not much of a variety to choose from and its dissame everyday.Swimming pool is small and not heated (a bit cold) located at the basement.Our room is big enough, nicely decorated and clean. Staff were helpful and accomodating. The only drawback was the check out on our last day. It took a long time because they need to verify our credit card even though we already paid the fees well in advanced. They even ask for a second signature which we find very strange and they made more phone calls which waisted more time.Apart from that our stay is pleasant enough.

We spent couple of nights at this hotel. Easily accessible from the airport, the biggest advantage is that it is very close to the malls, restaurants etc. Room was big and good, wifi connectivity was excellent, good service and a great value for money. Staff were extremely courteous and helpful. Good place to stay.
