Istanbul Hotels/Airport

Hi Guys,

We are thinking of booking flights for the Feb '08 mid-term. Dublin-Istanbul-Bodrum, with Turkish Airlines. Can anyone recommend an hotel close by to the Airport, as our return trip involves an overnight stay.

Also, how easy is it to get from one terminal to another? We will have to change flights outbound also, and only have about 80 minutes between flights?

Any info would be much appreciated!!

Thanks
Mag

We always stay in the Hali Hotel in Sultanahment-taxi in costs about 25-28ytl, or you can take a train and then tram for about 2.30ytl-bit of a drag if you have heavy cases. There is not much time between the flights -you will have to be nippy , but if you get your bags sent on rather than collect and check- in in Istanbul you will make it although maybe a bit rushed.

With a bit of luck Cork will do it-I'm actually a Dub and was based in Cork for 6 months this year-have to change the registration when I move back next month!

Hi Loz,

Yes checking out that option also. There's not much difference in the cost it's just difficult to get flights for the dates we want. Mid-term is always very busy.

That's the only treason I'm up for Cork this time-after the Dublin-v- Kerry game -such a let down!. We were in Kusadasi for some of the earlier matches both hurling and football and couldn't get over the brilliant reception in Somewhere Else.

Hi Mag

My mum flies Dublin-Ist-Izmir with THY quite often. Flights from Ist to Izmir are a lot more frequent so maybe you should think about flying to Izmir and then getting a transfer to Bodrum; it would save an overnight stay at a hotel.

If your outgoing flight from Dublin is delayed you will automatically be put onto the next connecting flight.

Re: Istanbul Hotels/Airport

We have travelled Dublin-Istanbul-Izmir a few times with THY and it can be a tight squeeze to make the last flight to Izmir. Any delay in Dublin could mean you will miss it and have to stay overnight in Istanbul, as happened to some friends of ours last year. Although you can book your luggage straight through from Dublin, you don't automatically transfer from one flight to the another. There is a 20 minute walk between terminals and you have to check in for the Izmir flight. This can involve queueing, albeit a shorter queue if you don't have any luggage. I'm sure someone posted a link for hotels on another thread. I'll see if I can find it and, if so, will post it here. Lots of Istanbul hotels do airport transfers and you should be able to get a good deal in February.
