Also if your stopover is during daytime, you could benefit from the Touristanbul service.
Thanks, I think I will get a sleeping room then and also save myself from paying the visa fee.

That said, is it not somewhat questionable to sell a flight that comes with a free hotel and then change the rules after the purchase and no longer give the promised free hotel?
