WOW Istanbul Hotel

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

little bit dirty but, close to exhibition place, also stabucks is convenient for me.

They put a third person bed in the room that was absolutely terrible. For a five star hotel and executive room that was unacceptable. The AC in the room was not sufficient. I had to bring the temp down to 15c and wait for three hours to feel the cooling. You can imagine the terrible bed combined with hot and humid night. Topping all that was an unusual fire alarm like sound at midnight for several minutes. No apologies next morning... I do not recommend this place.

Great location with awesome breakfast buffet. I'd recommend people to book their room with breakfast option, you won't regret it. Staff was very helpful too.

Great price, free shuttle and Breakfast included. Very friendly staff

Hotel room is clean, close to airport and saw a train not far away (dont know where is station) Overall, it is a good and convenient one.

Shuttle was readily available. Breakfast buffet was a feast! A few restaurants within easy walk. Metro right outside hotel. Overall, excellent hotel.

Huge hotel with conference center. Very pleasant staff, and restaurant providing excellent dinner and breakfast at moderate price. Room clean and well appointed, bed comfortable, but one electrical fitting hanging out of wall (hazardous to a youngster). Overall value for money very good, and a free half-hour minibus service between Istanbul Ataturk Airport and hotel, only five minutes journey. Unreserved recommendation as an extremely handy hotel for a stopover night.

Its good hospitality and near by airport as well as all the employee are so polite .

Easy to find the hotel. very close to the airport. metro station is very near. about 40 min away from downtown.

We only stayed in the hotel for a few hours, checking in at nine and out at 3 for a 6am flight. Staff were very helpful, and since we were missing the included breakfast, even had a bag breakfast for us on checkout. The room was clean and the roll away for our third party was comfortable.

Great hotel for an overnight stay! Recommend it! Stayed overnight before heading back to the U.S. Great free shuttle service to the airport. Thought the breakfast was free ended up paying 12 euros. Other than that a great experience.

Convenient to airport and to Metro system which goes into the old city where there is plenty to do and see. City felt safe for a single female traveler and Metro ran late at night. Unfortunately the free hotel shuttle took over an hour to arrive at the airport when I arrived - others in the area kept saying it will arrive in 5 minutes. It also started after I needed to leave for my flight the next morning. Cab fare was inexpensive though and readily available outside the hotel. Also missed breakfast due to starting after I needed to leave. Hotel was clean and staff friendly. SHOULD KNOW - if you decide to book a hotel to take advantage of a layover check to see if you need a visa. Visas can be purchased at the airport (30 Euro) and are good for 120 days. US citizens need visa.

A good hotel if you have a early flight from ataturk airport, close to airport and free shuttle, great staff, excellent room

We had a brief stay at the WOW before an early flight from Ataturk. It was a perfect location - easy access to the metro to get there and easy access to the airport. Even though our flight left before the shuttle service, taxi pickup was very prompt.

Very close to airport and have shuttle service from and to the airport. Rooms are clean and large enough. Have easy access to metro.

I had to do an overnight in Istanbul and this hotel was perfectly located.

The hotel was fine. The people at the desk were very helpful, although their knowledge of English was minimal (still, better than my knowledge of Turkish!). Very close to airport; especially great for early morning flights. Dinner at the hotel's restaurant was quite good, thankfully, because there are no other restaurants within sight.
