    Questions & AnswersAsk a question
    Hi Can anyone who has stayed at this hotel in December please tell me how you got from the hotel to Akuyeri airport? I tried to ask the hotel staff but they can't seem to answer my question and keep referring me to a travel agency. Surely there must be a taxi they can call? How is it possible that there is no easy form of paid transport to get back to the airport to leave ??? Thanks in advance
