Istanbul With Turkish Airlines #TK_Tour – The Hotel

When I arrived Istanbul Ataturk Airport, first thing I did was apply for tourist VISA at the airport, which will cost for us Kuwaitis EUR15 (or USD20) – they do not accept other currencies, so make sure to have cash in those amounts for it. Afterwards, and after customs and baggage claim, two representatives were waiting for me outside. They asked me to wait a while before leaving to the hotel. It was really early in the morning and I was half asleep (functioning was a bit slow lol) but they were very helpful!

لما وصلت إسطنبول أول شي سويته إني قدمت على فيزا السواح في المطار. سعر الفيزا ١٥ يورو أو ٢٠ دولار أمريكي. هذه العملتين اللي يقبلهم المطار. بعد تخريج الجوازات و إستلام الحقائب استقبلوني ممثلين من الطيران التركي و رحنا الفندق. أنا كنت تعبانة و ابي الفراش… وصلت الفندق – راديسون بلو المطار – اللي حجزوه لانا الطيران التركي أخذت لكم كذا صورة

The hotel was Radisson Blu Conference & Airport Hotel – Istanbul, which is from its name close to the airport and was booked for us by Turkish Airlines. The room was pretty spacious and very clean

غرفتي كانت بقسم رجال الاعمال و مجهزة بالكامل مع ماكينة نسبريسو و ماء و عدة الشاي. الفندق يحرص على البيئة و لذلك كان في خيار ما بين تغيير المناشف يوميا أو لا. الغرفة مجهزة بتلفزيون و مكتب و مكان للجلوس و الإسترخاء. عيب من عيوب الفندق قربه الشديد من المطار و إزعاج الطائرات – أنا ما عندي مشكلة بالصوت بس في الكثير ما راح يرتاحون من هذه الشغلة و الإنترنت سريع بيس لازم بنقاط معينة في الغرفة و الفندق 

My room was in their business section. It was fully equipped with Nespresso machine, complimentary daily water, coffee & tea bags, and the option for daily change of towels (because it is one of those green hotels where you can ask them to use towels for more than a day to minimize washing and help the environment)

The room has a flat screen TV, a desk/work station, and a seating area with arm chair and foot rest. Internet is provided to hotel guests with passwords. It was somewhat fats, but not available in all spots… I had to sit in certain spots to get signal sometimes. The noise from the airport would be a problem for many! I can sleep in noise or with the TV on, but for others who cant it will be hard! This hotel is perfect for a one night layover and aircraft staff from different airlines. Other than that it was nice and clean, comfy bed, most of the staff were friendly and attentive.

Bathroom was also spacious and clean… an added plus of course as it is one of the most important things when staying in hotels. Fully equipped with shower, hair dryer, and toiletry from Anne Semonin – Paris

الحمام نظيف و كبيير نوعا ما  مع شاور و سشوار و منتجات آن سيمونين الفرنسية 

Breakfast buffet have a good selection of food. Lobby area is amazing and modernly designed too and all those places are with Internet access. I forgot to snap pictures of their fitness center and lobby so I took the below from their website

بوفيه الإفطار متنوع و اللوبي منسق بطريقة مودرن – أو حديثة ين صح التعبير – و أخذت الصورتين تحت من موقعهم 

Stay tuned for more on my Istanbul Trip 😉
