Your In-Terminal Hotel at Istanbul New Airport
Do you have an overnight stopover at Istanbul International Airport? Or perhaps, do you want to refresh yourself during a long layover at the airport? Istanbul Airport is equipped with day beds and lounge chairs, but these options are surely not the most convenient ones. On the contrary, YOTEL Istanbul Airport Hotel, located both in the Departures area (YOTEL Landside) and Duty-Free zone (YOTELAIR) is a full-on luxury experience that will turn your annoying downtime at the airport into a pleasant and worth-reminding stay.
Where is YOTEL Located at Istanbul Airport?
Two different YOTEL facilities are located inside the new Istanbul Airport. YOTELAIR is conveniently lying in the Duty-Free Zone, at the terminal airside. As a result, in order to reach the YOTEL airside Hotel, you must pass the security control and hand over your luggage. So, on the one hand, you will be right next to your departure point, but on the other, checking in to YOTELAIR requires a boarding pass for an onward international flight while only hand luggage is allowed, as checked baggage must have already been handed in. To sum up, if you have just landed at Istanbul Airport from an international flight, you should follow Gates A and B and skip Passport Control. You will find YOTEL airside Hotel next to the LCW store. However, if your previous flight was domestic or you are coming right away from the city, passing passport control is obligatory to get to the hotel.
Moreover, the second YOTEL Istanbul facility is YOTEL Istanbul Airport – Landside which is located in the departures area (before the passport control) and specifically, across the terminal ate 7. Thus, if your earlier flight was domestic, you should skip passport control and head directly to the hotel’s location. On the contrary, if your flight was an international one, checking in to YOTEL landside Hotel requires passing passport control and possibly having a valid visa (depending on your country of origin).
