Transportation from Ataturk Airport to Hotel?

Found 1st Aug 2017

We are going in a group of 7 people with 7 suitcases. I need to know if getting a bus or taxi from the Ataturk airport to Sirkeci is better than booking online?

Can anyone kindly suggest recommendation?

Taxis are all saloon cars. Ask your hotel if they can provide a transfer service. We did that and they sent us a minibus which only cost us about £30. Think you can use metro but with family and suitcases I wouldn't bother.
If you can manage the metro, you should do that.
It can take you to your destination with just one change of trains.
See this map:

The people carrier / private taxis are generally 6 seaters and definitely won't be able to hold that many passengers as well as their luggage. Given the huge amounts of traffic in Istanbul, the metro might be potentially quicker, as well as far cheaper.
If you do use it, absolutely make sure to purchase an Istanbulkart (Google it). You only need the one between you. Think of it as an Oyster card if you are familiar with the London underground.
