Istanbul Ataturk Airport

by web-administrator (September, 2014)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(GUEST) This airport is awful, it's cold, there is no where to sit at all. I had a layover for 6 hours and I wasn't allowed to leave and there was absolutely no place to eat, sit or relax. Awful.

(GUEST) I had a decent night at Ataturk Airport in Istanbul and I was not bothered at all during my 6-7 hours of sleep. I did hear some people cleaning around me but no one told me to wake up.

Istanbul Ataturk Airport

Pros: -
Cons: -


(GUEST) Istanbul Ataturk airport is a crowded and filthy place. On arrival, queues at passport control are massive and it can take a good hour to hour and a half to go through. At the security points employees take their time and have way too much power in their hands. Even though it's a non smoking term is the toilets always stink of cigarettes- I have actually seen airport employees smoking in the toilets. It's impossible to sleep to get some rest, as the airport is overcrowded and there are hardly any spaces for one to sit down and relax.

free place to sleep

Reason for Stay: Hotels unavailable
Pros: kind staff
Cons: uncomfortable seats


I could not find a hostel to sleep in the city centre. So I went to the airport by underground and slept there for about 8 hours! It was quiet and fine.

worst airport

by Elaine (August, 2014)


Where: Landside and Airside
Pros: they have regular floors and not dirt floors
Cons: dirty, filthy


Most of the staff do not speak English and the ones who do cannot be bothered to help you. I walked the whole airport misled by the morons who work there. The carpets were filthy. I went to a woman's bathroom and a male employee was hiding in the bathroom with his work equipment. The bathroom did not have toilet paper or paper towels, the toilets did not work, there was no soap and the bathroom smelled horrible as it had not been cleaned for days. No one knew where the TAV Airport hotel was located even though these idiots work at the airport and are supposedly there on a daily basis. I will never ever travel with an airline that will make a stop in Turkey. Then, they lost one of my luggage and no one knows where it might have been sent. Calling them is a waste of time as they do not answer the phones or care. This airport should be close continued >>
