This is 3-Star accommodations. Unfortunately, it's a 5-star price, because there is no other option. If you have an extended layover because Turkish Air denied their free hotel policy for 24-hour layovers, and no visa, then this is your ONLY option. And for only three-six hours you'll be paying as much as a week at a Motel 6. But it is incredible in their- with artificial daylight, movies, slippers, large bed, large shower- the works. It is the rest you absolutely crave and you decidely need.

The TAV Airport Hotel is divided in two.
There is the airside and the outside. The airside is located right inside the airport and is great for people in transit. If you don’t have a Turkey Visa you can’t leave the airport. The rooms go by the hour. Great place for a snooze when your next flight isn’t for more than a couple of hours and your jet lagged out of your mind. The staff is friendly, speak English and the rooms are clean and well stocked. The rooms are not as modern as the outside version. There are enough bars and restaurants in the airport to keep you well fed. The duty free is off the map crazy.
Okay the outside version. When you exit the airport you’ll see a sea of Yellow Taxis. Turn right and walk towards the end of the taxi stands. On the island between where the taxis depart and the outer road, look for a tiny sign for the TAV Hotel shuttle bus. Oh it’s there, it’s just tough to find. Unlike American and Canadian airports the shuttle for TAV doesn’t run around the clock. So, under the tiny sign for the hotel you’ll find a red phone. Pick it up and request a shuttle and yes, in English. The first thing that strikes you when you enter the outside hotel is an airport-like security screening process. Empty your pockets and walk through the metal detector. Strange yes, but you’re basically right on the airport property. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms in the outside part of the hotel are more up to date, clean and efficient. Don’t be fooled by the room numbers and on which floor you’re situated. For example room 410 is on the second floor. Who knew? We had a 15 hour layover when we used the outside hotel. It was about a 20 minute taxi ride into the old part of Istanbul and worth the time on a long layover. Cool and clean hotel for business travelers

We had a long layover on our way to the Maldives and this hotel was fantastic for a quick snooze. We checked in on both our layovers and the rooms were very clean and tidy. The staff at the front desk were very friendly as well.

The rooms were very basic but that is really all you need when you are just looking for a place to sleep for a few hours. It definitely beat just sitting around the airport!

Room Tip: Get a non smoking room if you do not like the smell of smoke!

Very convenient option for an early morning flight. There is a free phone that connects to the reception outside in the arrivals pickup area if you need to use the shuttle bus.
Rooms are spacious and comfortable and it is easy walking distance to the terminal.

We stayed here for one night to catch an early morning flight. Our room was spacious, clean and quite modern. We ate at the hotel restaurant as well, it was decent. The service was also very good. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk to the international terminal so super convenient. I umderstand that the domestic terminal is about 15 minutes away but they have a shuttle.

I stayed in this hotel last week, I was on business trip and had connection for 13 hrs in Ataturk Istanbul airport, this room was paid for me by my company but I had the most comfortable transit ever since 8 years monthly traveling, the room rate is highly expensive but it worth when u have extremely long connection.

The TAV airport hotel on the airside terminal provides travers with a long layover an excellent option while awaiting their connecting flight. Rates are commensurate with the number of hours the room is required. I stayed 9 hours while waiting for my connection and it was worth the expense. I made my reservation 36 hours before travelling with ease on their website, and had no problem checking in, although I did not guarantee the room with a credit card. The receptionist was friendly and helpful. I had the base room with two twin beds, wet bar, a view of the groundside entrance (outside the terminal) and an in-room movie service for a small fee. The amenities include a in hotel gym and restaurant as well as access to the main airport shops and restaurants. No need to get a Visa as you never leave the terminals. A good option for layovers longer than normal.

Room Tip: Good for extended layovers
