The Green Park Hotel Merter5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I had transfer in Istanbul so Turkish Airlines organized my staying for a night in that hotel. Fortunately this option is free otherwise I would not stay there. Location is not preferable for me as it’s a bit far from the main road. The room is not so clean and smells little not fresh. Generally the room is quite tired. As I was leaving at 5 am so I had no breakfast in there.
there is a wedding salon and abar in corner of grand flour of this hotel and they play music very loud that can be easily heard in your rooms and this noise exist even after midnight and disturb your sleep while people goes to hotel for resting.
this is a 3 star not a 5 star hotel there is many better hotel in istanbul with 4 start. there is no welcome. not clean rooms, awful bath, placed near airport but far from important parts of istanbul, and not a modern hotel
As with a number of other people here, Turkish Airlines provided us with rooms at this hotel due to a layover (a medical emergency with a passenger on our flight caused us to miss our connecting flight during our June-July 2017 trip to the western Balkans). The place is not really a "5-star" hotel but for an "airport hotel" - a class of hotels typically bland and basic - this hotel was very nice. It at least makes some attempt at being attractive and stylish in the lobby and public areas of the hotel - lots of marble and brass, nice spiral staircase, etc., and it has a nice park-like setting with attractive trees, garden area, etc., outdoor lounge. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable. Our air conditioning worked fine. I would not stay here when really visiting Istanbul - I always stay in the Sultanahmet area or similar parts of the old city - but if one is stuck in the city for a single night layover or the like, it seemed like a fine choice. It is very close to the airport - the drive to and from it took about 10 minutes.
We were put up here by Turkish Airlines during a 15-hour layover. I was initially excited to be staying at my first ever 5-star hotel, however it soon became clear that this rating was pulled out of a hat. The room was a very basic double, about on par with most 3-star hotels. It was small but clean and there was free coffee on the desk, despite a total lack of kettle in the room. The worst feature by far was the air conditioning, which was weak at best and started to blast hot air halfway through the night. Glad not to have paid for the stay but can't complain on the basis that it was free and only a 20 minute ride from the airport, even with traffic. Was disappointed to be leaving too early to try their breakfast, which has good reviews.
I stayed at the Green Park Merter for one night due to a flight delay causing me to miss my connection. Turkish Airlines very kindly put me up in this hotel. The check-in process was quick and the lobby area was comfy. The dinner we got was a set menu and at 9.30pm on a Sunday for some reason the bar was shut and the only way we could get a drink was using the minibar. Dinner was good considering I wasn’t expecting it and arrived quickly and this allowed me to go to bed. The room was very hot and the air conditioning didn’t work well at all, The beds weren’t the most comfy and I think a new mattress would probably be recommended! However the pillows were excellent. The main issue for me was the air conditioning not working and due to this I had to open the window and therefore was rather noisy outside! The positives were the dinner, the free wifi which was fast and I could access in my room and also the view of the planes coming into land was rather good. I wouldn’t say this is a 5 Star Hotel at all, More like a 4 Star or even a 3 Star! But is acceptable for a night before a flight and is near to the airport and can reach the airport within 30 minutes.
I was actually on a 16+ hour layover in Istanbul! I found out that Turkish airlines will provide you with a free hotel with a lengthy layover, so this was great! They provide a great breakfast. The hotel is located near nice little parks and a local tram/train to get to the city or wherever you need to go. Istanbul is great!
Turkish airlines must keep this hotel in business. I did not voluntarily pick this hotel but was sent her by Turkish Airlines after a debacle and probably over 50 of us were stranded. I was advised it was a 5 star hotel. No not even close the waiter in the restaurant was hostile, yelled at us, wifi was spotty, and this hotel further reinforced how Turkish airlines screwed up my vacation. To be fair the rooms are spacious. But it's not near to the city center. We had to pay a visa to enter Turkey and couldn't enjoy it in the slightest. This hotel would never be a logical choice unless you had to find something close to the airport. Some of staff was beyond rude.
Turkish Airlines sent me to this hotel with the promise that it would be a 5-star hotel. I stayed there for about 4 hours and wish I wouldn't have gone through all that hassle The beds were narrow and not very comfy, the room size rather small, the shower dated, air condition was ok, wifi speed good and the staff was friendly doing their best to handle a bunch of grumpy passengers who missed flights or had other worries. I felt the hotel was noisy (especially the lobby) and I am not sure about the area (which I didn't explore). I would estimate the star rating of this hotel between 2 and 3 on American / Western Europe standards. If this hotel wouldn't have posted 5-stars rating, but one more in line with international standards, I would have given a better TripAdvisor rating here.
We did not have a choice in the hotel - this was arranged for by Turkish Airlines. But, fortunately, the hotel was a good one for an overnight layover stop. The staff were friendly, the food in the hotel dining room (buffet-style) had a wide selection, and the fare was tasty (price was very reasonable). Breakfast was also buffet and had a good selection - the price was included.
