    A very nice lounge included a bar indeed and they did their utmost to secure some social distance between the visitors but we were just way to many. Lounge was spotless and staff really good

    We have not that good experience in this lounge. Staff were not polite and does not provide complete information. It is comfortable for long layover but with the service we are not satisfied.

    We really appreciate the cleanliness in toilet and bathroom.

    I am sure i will not use this service but if there is not other option then better to use it.

    went to a trade fair for 4 days and found the place well maintained and well run. Security is tight which is good and comforting.

    This is a good Business Class lounge in Istanbul's new airport.
    While it's not an excellent lounge, it does offer plenty of seating areas, decent food and drink and some leisure activities.

    I had a truly relaxing visit to the arrivals lounge. Comfortable, well served and it allowed me to relax before I headed out of the airport after my 12.5 hour long haul flight.
    Thank you!

    Lutfu KIRDAR Convention Center regularly houses the BIFO concerts on thursdays ( check the dates), important art fairs and conferences in several halls of different sizes. The entrance to the concert hall is near Taksim, very close to the Hilton Hotel. The entrance to the art fairs is closer to Nişantaşı. You can take the stairs near the concert hall. The conferences are usually in the main building where the concerts are held. The concert hall is quite big and is popular among the classical music lovers.

    No idea why korean air selected this lounge. Its average or rather awful. Rude staff. No wash room or shower. Pathetic food. Very disappointed. Interior was moderate and internet Connection is above the average.

    Disappointing lounge at 10pm. My Qatar Airways flight left Istanbul at 12:30am and because I was traveling business class, I was issued a voucher for this lounge. The design of the chairs and tables were nice, there were big windows overlooking the runway but that is far as the pleasant aspect went. No food to speak of! Not a cracker, muffin, candy bar or anything like that, not to mention no desert offerings. The only food available was packaged bread rolls and a few very wilted looking salads. The coffee could only be dispensed into very small paper cups. Basically it was a place to sit in peace and quiet and drink free coffee and that's it. I'd think that Qatar Airways could do better than this for its business class passengers out of Istanbul. Come on.

    We were in group visiting the Library with escort of the Architect and library manager. The library open to all 24 hr but prior arrangement is required if visiting there in group. The Library was a heritage conservation works. The effort made by the Architect is really amazing. Rare books are kept in a glass cubes which can be viewed by all visitors and at the same time valuable books could be conserved in a safe place. In such budget constraint, the final works really worth a short visit..

    Not as good as old ATATURK airport. Lacking in character and charisma and very much an over-sized cafeteria.

    This attraction is well worth a visit and the line up to gain entry. There is a fee. You can easily spend over an hour here taking pictures using the limited available light. This is a damp environment, and water may drip down from the ceiling. And do take a look at the base of the pillars - you may see carved facial features. You will also find the "Cistern Cafe" and small souvenir shop here.

    Would we recommend this Attraction: Yes, at least once.
