Why Stay At Divan Istanbul City
Just a 20-minute drive from Istanbul's Atatürk International Airport, this 144-room modern hotel is set right in Istanbul's Maslak business district.
A counterpoint to Istanbul's historic, grand dame hotels, this 144-room property by the Istanbul-based hotel brand Divan is best suited to travelers who prefer ease and convenience over ornate design and obsequious service. The Divan's guest rooms exemplify the streamlined sensibility: they're done up in muted colors and blond wood and feature business-friendly perks such as free Wi-Fi. And while the property's location in Istanbul's Maslak business district means it's convenient for corporate travelers, shoppers can choose between the open-air Kanyon Shopping Mall, a five-minute drive from the hotel, and the markets and shops on the city's Asian side, just across the Bosphorus Bridge.
Have the kids in tow? Istanbul Cevahir, a massive shopping complex walking distance from the hotel, is home to a roller coaster and the second-largest clock in the world.
Snack at the hotel's Divan Pub, or head five miles south to the Egyptian Bazaar for a treat of honeycomb and hard Turkish cheese at Erzincanlilar (shop No. 2), one of Istanbul's best deli counters.
Arrive at Atatürk International Airport (IST) which is approximately 13 miles from the hotel. Anticipate between 20 and 30 minutes of travel time.Büyükdere Caddesi No:84, Gayrettepe, Istanbul, Turkey
