“Expensive but your only choice”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

The hotel is ok , not something to boast about , but since it's the only choice you will have at Istanbul airport you can't complain, the rooms are average but clean. Bathrooms are very neat and the toiletries are reasonable quality , the negatives are small rooms , delay in room service , and a small tv , and yes , it is very expensive for the quality u get , they charge 2 hourly and a stay of 6 hours will put u back 150 EUR, it's not value for money , but considering you just need to kill the transit time and sleep , it's the only choice you will have ....so better like it.

On our last trip to Iraq, we were in transit in Istanbul for 12 hrs and needed to get some rest before we flew out to Baghdad. The TAV hotel was conveniently located inside the terminal, ie, no visa was required. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Only drawback was that it is a bit expensive.

Room Tip: If you are in transit for less then 5 hrs, try to get a "suite" at the Turkish Airline lou...

Used this place as a layover before taking internal flights within Turkey.It`s initially a little disconcerting going through an airport style baggage x ray on entering but I guess they know what they`re doing.The hotel isn`t new but has a feeling of being underused.There are large public spaces which are always virtually empty,the rooms are very large and the fixtures and fittings look like they`ve hardly been used.I`ve seen a few hotels like this in Turkey...maybe they build too many ? A clean,functional hotel right next to the airport

The hotel is within walking distance of the airport. Just turn right as you exit the airport terminal. The rooms are large, clean, and is equipped with most of what you need. What really intrigued me was that from the dining room you look right out at the airport activities. I had a wheat salad for dinner which was tasty. A couple of glasses of a local white wine, after a 13 hour flight, assured me that I would get a good night sleep. For the convenience you cannot beat the location.

I stayed in this hotel in July 2013, it was good and convenient for my early flight. I had lots of luggage and it was difficult to bring the luggage through the doors and there was no one to help but overall it was a decent hotel with a modern decor. If you need to stay very close to the airport, I would recommend this hotel but if you have time to travel 15-20 minutes to the airport, there are better hotels in the area.

This was our last stay on a three week long Rotary trip staying at hotels and peoples homes we were flying at 8am the next day so stayed landside. As with the rest of Turkey the staff was very friendly. The room was very modern, updated, quiet and had a decent hotel restaurant. We arrived from the domestic side of the airport but the shuttle picked us up with a call from the desk at the airport exit within 5 minutes (was a little concerned as I read and heard from another couple about delays with the shuttle). Our only problem was one of our friends in the room next to us fell in the shower. They are slippery as it is all new however the staff came running up and after a little while he felt he was fine to go home with a cut on his scalp. Secondly, but through no fault of the hotel, our flight left an hour early due to the fact Turkey said they were not honoring daylight savings time but Turkish air failed to notify us they moved up the time by keeping in line with the rest of Europe. Was quite a hassle to check in with luggage to find out our plane was boarding and we still needed to go through security. Just wished that as an airport hotel the staff might have found this out ahead. As far as restaurant food after 3 weeks of amazing food it was better than most hotels. The breakfast buffet was also very good and they included it and it started very early before most flights. All in all if you are looking for convenience to the airport would highly recommend this hotel even with the high prices.

Room Tip: go for the new execuctive rooms which are further down the hall but completely modern

I booked one of their airside rooms during a 11hrs layover. It is very convenient, you basically enter the hotel within the transfer terminal - no need for any security checks etc. However, they know about their advantages and they let you pay for it - per hour, no joke. That makes it a bit pricy but again, very convenient. The service is ok, you might call the room service, use pay TV, whatever you need to relax. Internet access is free but poor, rooms are small but clean. Overall, a nice experience.
