Skylon Airport Hotel: Accommodation Near Istanbul New Airport In Turkey

Skylon Airport Hotel: Accommodation Near Istanbul New Airport in Turkey

If you’ve traveled to Istanbul in the past few years since the Istanbul New Airport (known as Istanbul Yeni Havalimani for the locals) at Arnavutkoy was opened to the public in 2019, you probably know how far it is to get to the city center from the airport in the European side of Istanbul. The distance makes it worth staying somewhere close to the airport. So in this post, I’m going to share my experience when I stayed at one of the accommodations near Istanbul New Airport: Skylon Airport Hotel!

Anyone who had previously traveled to Istanbul via Attaturk Airport would realize how much they took for granted the practicality and convenience of airport transfer in Istanbul nowadays. But when it comes to facilities and other things, Istanbul New Airport is definitely an upgrade from their old airport.

I booked a room at Skylon Airport Hotel in Istanbul for one night before my Emirates flight back to Dubai last year, because I thought it would make it easier (and cheaper!) to get the airport transfer from the hotel. So, is it worth staying at the accommodation near the new airport in the European side of Istanbul?

8 Fantastic Things to Do in Bursa, Turkey

Bursa might not be as popular as Istanbul on the list of must-visit places to visit in Turkey (currently known as Türkiye).

I went to Bursa from Yalova last year, and I had a short stay there for two nights before realizing that I should’ve stayed a bit longer since I still have so many more places that I want to visit in Bursa!

In this post, I’m going to share my experience for a short stay in Bursa and list some of the fantastic things to do in the city if you have limited time to stroll around this historical city. So, what are the things you shouldn’t miss in Bursa, Turkey?

Review: Staying At Kule Hotel In Bursa, Turkey

Review: Staying at Kule Hotel in Bursa, Turkey

On my birthday last year, I decided to take a last-minute trip to Bursa from Yalova as I thought it would be worth going to Mount Uludag and getting on the famous gondola (or known as teleferik in Bursa) to celebrate my birthday all by myself. 

I decided to book a room at Kule Hotel in Bursa for two nights, so I will share my firsthand review of staying at this affordable hotel in the center of the former capital city of the Ottoman Empire. 

So, where is the best neighborhood to stay in Bursa? On a scale of 1 to 10, how convenient is Kule Hotel as an accommodation for a solo traveler? Is it value for the money, or is it better to find another hotel in the city?
