There are two Priority Pass-eligible lounges in the International Terminal at Istanbul Ataturk Airport, and the first that I stopped by was the HSBC Club Lounge.
It’s a rather basic lounge: one large room with seating, a couple of computers, a bevy of desserts, and basic drink options.
As I was planning on visiting the Primeclass CIP Lounge as well, I didn’t stay long, but I did check out the food options. There were a lot of different cookies, cakes, and packaged sandwiches to grab, as well as a soup. The desserts that I tried were pretty tasty. I also appreciated that the bananas were reasonably ripe (why is this so hard to find in airport lounges?), but they were nearly frozen.
In general, this is a decent lounge, but if you’re accessing through Priority Pass, the Primeclass CIP Lounge is better in almost every respect (more food options, showers, more space). This lounge does offer a wider selection of desserts, and if you’re just stopping by to grab something and don’t have long to linger, the packaged sandwiches are much more portable than the food options at the Primeclass CIP Lounge.
