Istanbul Ataturk Airport Review

(Guest Review) First off, the signs of anything is very poor. I had no idea I had to get a visa until I waited in line and seeing one sign that listed all the countries that required one. Also, there are absolutely NO ONE around to ask any questions and if you do find someone NO ONE knows ANYTHING. The worst part about this airport I that the taxi and ground transportation system is MESSED UP! All the 'free' shuttles either from the airport agency or hotels take over an hour or so to arrive. It's almost like the taxi cabs know that the shuttle drivers are holding off or not coming and the cabbies make a killing with those that break down after waiting for so long in the heat for the 'free' shuttle. It's the worst airport experience I have ever had and I travel outside of US at least twice a year. If you do get to this airport, make sure y continued >>

No wifi but free Turkish delights.

(Guest Review) No wifi, unless you go to a lounge. The food is pretty expensive but you can get tons of Turkish delights for free at the duty free shops. The chairs are pretty comfortable, and half of them don't have the damned armrests, so you can sleep in a nice fetal position that's not really uncomfortable. The toilet paper runs out quickly so be aware of this.

(Guest Review) For a major international transit hub, the airport is way too small to accommodate the passengers it handles. You see people sitting on the floors, in all restaurant and coffee shops. If it wasn't for the excellent business lounge, I would either avoid the airport, or make sure my transit is long enough so I go into the city!

(Guest Review) Istanbul airport has everything you cou,d ever wish for in an international airport - easy directions, comfortable seating, excellent local and reliable transportation. The business class lounge is to die for with several delicious food stations, showers, free massage tables, fresh fruits, vegetables, drinks, quiet ares with comfortable lounge chairs which fully recline, free wifi, over 50 TVs with translation headphones - maximum comfort. The Duty Free shols are plentiful and everyone is just ultra friendly.

(Guest Review) Me and my family landed here back in 2012 to go on a cruise through the Mediterranean. Being Americans, we had to get visas. While we were waiting in line, one a few of the customs agents were talking about having sex with my daughter, who was 14 at the time. They didn't know I am fluent in Turkish. Eventually one of them came up and said they had to take her and my wife aside for a 'security check'. I told them no, and then explained to them, in turkish, that I had heard the awful things they had said and that they would have to kill me before they got to them. After getting our visas and getting out of customs, to police officers where outside waiting for me. Apparently, someone reported that I had made threatening statements to customs and had illegally gone through security. I was handcuffed, and luckily a travel agent continued >>
