When faced with an unexpected flight delay or a long layover in an airport, many weary travelers resign themselves to sleeping slouched over in a chair or stretched out on the cold floor until boarding time. Luckily, Istanbul Airport has a variety of sleep-friendly options from day beds in designated “rest zones” to day use rooms and a hotel connected to the airport.

Whether you need a room for a few hours or overnight, the information we have compiled below can help you find a comfortable spot for sleeping.

Of course, if you prefer to sleep in the airport terminal, we’ve got you covered there as well! Visit our Istanbul Airport Guide to find out how to survive a layover or night inside the airport.

Rest Zones

They are equipped with day beds. ” Other readers have mentioned round couches at Gate B9 and 20+ lounge chairs (with a bamboo privacy wall) at upper level of the E1/E2 section.
