Hotel Ibis Istanbul Hotel 3 star
Kazlicesme Mah Kennedy Cad N56, Zeytinburnu 34025 Istanbul, Turkey -
See the map
Amy Adejokun Section editor

This Ibis is located next to its sister establishment, the Novotel, on the motorway connecting Istanbul to its outlying districts and the international airport. Both establishments are members of the Accor group, which helps explain their similarities.
The meticulous service and stylish decor make this an ideal place to stay if you are just passing through the city and looking to be close to the airport.
The 'low-cost' booking system is another reason to choose this hotel.

    Location 3.0 /10

    The hotel is next to the Novotel, beside the road linking the city centre to Ataturk international airport.
    It is about 20 minutes from Istanbul by car, but the 3 mi journey to the centre is not a problem because there is a shuttle service that passes by the Novotel. However, no such service exists between the hotel and airport, which is a modestly priced 10 minute taxi ride away.
    A second shuttle service operates between the hotel and Bakyrköy, a neighbourhood in the city's western outskirts (next to Zeytinburnu) that used to be a Greek colony and known under its current name since 1925.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The establishment has a total of 228 standard guest rooms, which are decorated in the understated, minimalist style that characterises the Accor chain.
    Spacious enough, they are all bright and well laid out. In addition to the wired and Wi-Fi Internet access, you'll have everything you need for a comfortable stay: a flat-screen television, air-conditioning, a minibar, and bathroom accessories. However, there is no room service.

    Although the majority of the standard rooms overlook the motorway connecting Istanbul and the airport, the double glazing does a good job of keeping the noise out, so you should not be bothered by the constant traffic outside your window.
    The Bosphorus can be seen across the motorway.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    The hotel is a minimalist complex designed with straight lines and smooth, compact shapes. The space is limited but well distributed. It is located just behind the Novotel complex with which it shares a number of services. Indeed, for an additional charge, guests staying at the Ibis can enjoy meals at the Novotel's restaurant, swim in its pool, and use its meeting and conference rooms.
    Generally speaking, the Novotel attracts business visitors, while guests booking in to the Ibis are often just passing through. We would recommend the former for families.
    Like in the Novotel, Wi-Fi Internet access is provided in the communal spaces and guest rooms at the Ibis.

    Food and drink 7.95 /10

    In keeping with the group's style, the restaurant operates as a buffet of international dishes.
    Families with young children can request a special menu and high chairs.

    The idea is simple: just choose your table and fill your plate as high as you like. There is also a counter where pasta, (of the pre-cooked variety, inevitably) to which you can add the seasoning of your choice, is served.
    We especially liked the desserts, which are based on fruits or cream and range from classic pastries to typical local specialities like cakes made with pistachios or walnuts.
    Breakfast is served in the same dining room, which can seat up to around 100 guests. This meal consists of a selection of sweet and savoury international dishes.

    To know

    The Ibis is a straightforward building with guest rooms and services suited to business travellers and those just passing through the city. Opening a month after its sister establishment, in April 2007, it is not as sophisticated as the neighbouring Novotel but it certainly meets the standards of service expected of the Ibis chain.
    It belongs to the Accor group and sells itself as an establishment offering cheap accommodation.
    The group has designed a booking system for both establishments similar to that used by budget airlines, meaning the room rates vary day to day based on availability and how far in advance you make your booking. Special packages are also available for families and guests with specific requirements.

      This is not a luxury hotel. Its location is perfect for discovering the town (on foot or by taking a tram or taxi).
      Maybe choose to have lunch and/or dinner away from the hotel, as the food services here are limited, without forgetting the bar, which isn't very attractive.

      This modest hotel has the advantage of being close to the centre of Istanbul. It is also located near Gülhane Park and the Galata Bridge, where groups of fishermen supply the restaurants below.
      It is an establishment that will suit those who do not have high expectations and are just looking for budget accommodation for their stay in Istanbul.

      • Value for money 7.06
      • Location 3.0

      Before being turned into a hotel, the building served as an Ottoman University and then as a luxury apartment block: the history of the Crowne Plaza speaks of the grandeur of the infrastructure that has lost nothing of its charm in a century of existence.

      The interior decorating makes abundant use of old-fashioned colours, thus creating a very strange atmosphere.
      Thanks to its beautiful decorating, the 5 star level of service, and its central location, this is a good establishment if you're after a little more than just a bed in Istanbul.

      The Novotel of Istanbul only opened recently and is a good hotel for a business trip or a short stay in the city. It is orderly and follows a linear layout, but one of its major assets can also constitute its weak point: its location. This is a good starting point for visiting other destinations, but is not ideal for more traditional holidays. The establishment stands out for its good service and its attention to detail.

      It is in the perfect location for guests on business and provides tourists with reliable service.

      As its name indicates, the Sumahan on the Water is a little world on the water. Inside, it displays a balance of lines and shapes that create a modern style and is never cold. This is a bit of a surprise given the exterior aspect of the building, which management wanted to keep as nondescript as possible.
      This effort to go unnoticed speaks of the attention afforded to the guests, in terms of welcome, service, and cuisine. The Sumahan blends luxury and attention to detail together with know-how, efficiency, good taste, and quality.
      It also commands one of the finest views of the Bosphorus there is. It really is in a league of its own.
