I will be flying from Tel Aviv to Istanbul in mid September and have a few options for flights. The cheaper option is with Pegasus Airlines landing at Sabiha Gokcen Airport. Has anyone made there own way from this airport to the city center. I am staying at the Grand Pennsiula Hotel if that makes a difference. They offer airport pickup for 60 Euros.
The other option is Turkish Airlines but this is about $80 more but arrives at Ataturk Airport. It seems easier to get to the city center on my own from this airport. The hotel offers a shuttle for 20 E.
My backpacker heart says the cheaper option but my practical mind say go to Ataturk. Which option would you choose and why?
