This hotel is a brilliant facility for anyone transiting through IST overnight or even during the day if you have a long wait. It is in the transit area - a bit of a hike down the length of the terminal, but they couldn't really have put it anywhere else.
You do not need a visa: just go through into the transit area (this means going through a security screening, but not through passport control), turn right, and walk until you see the hotel. Rooms are charged by the hour; they're not fancy but our room was clean and comfortable.
Room service was not speedy but it got there in a reasonable time. There are bars and restaurants and shops right outside the door (i.e. in the transit area), and in the morning you just have to go to your gate for departure. (You must have a boarding pass for your departure flight.)
I would definitely use this hotel again if I had a long transfer in this airport.
