Contras: The hotel is 35 minutes from the airport in the opposite direction to Istanbul so it takes over an hour to reach the city . Also not vet close to the airport. Basically in a poor location for any type of sight seeing. The public areas at the hotel were poor . The terrace bar possibly the worst I have seen with a view of the top of the cement roof and generator/ air conditioning plant ! Restaurant very basic however the room service was excellent.
