Plane Spotting Istanbul Sabia Gokcen SAW
|Hotel Divan Istanbul Asia|
|Location:||*||Located around 2 miles South West of Istanbul SAW Airport|
Looking for an easy way to view traffic at Sabiha Gokcen, I put in a bit of time on Google Earth and came up with Hotel Divan Istanbul Asia.
It’s a tall,comfortable, modern hotel. I asked for a high floor facing north east (the back) and was given a room on the 17th floor (1706 I think).
The view was of most of the airport with all runway movements visible at a distance. SBS was put to good use, although for the time I was there, arrivals were from the South West and could be read from a mile away, passing at 1000ft.
Further to the view from the room, the top floor (1 above) had a restaurant and bar, both with open air terraces. The bar view faces the sea for arrivals from the SW and the restaurant terrace has a view of the sea all the way round to finals and Rwy 06.
There was also a remote view of the western biz ramps and the maintenance storage ramps.
Well worth a stop for some easy logging over a few beers.
