Why don't you just take a cab? It should be about $20 USD.

There is a line of taxis right outside the terminal door. And like Margiela said, it costs around 20 dollars (but payed in liras).

Check with your hotel, a lot of the hotels in Istanbul will pick you up for free if you are staying more than three nights.

it is important to know which airport and which hotel you ask? there are two airports in Istanbul and lots of hotels in various parts of it... Quotation will be depending on these dynamics...

I just came back from Istanbul 2 days ago - depending on your hotel location I think best bet is metro for 1.3 YTL.

Thanks for the advice. We are starting a 12 day cruise from Istanbul, and will have at least 4 suitcases and a carryon (don't ask!), will all this fit in a taxi?

Are there 8 of you -- or, what's with all this luggage? I asked, contrary to your instructions, but you'll know why when you get there with all your stuff.

Since you have so much luggage,ask your hotel to reserve a van for transportation from the airport. I doubt very much that you could fit four bags plus a carry-on in a standard taxi.
