We stayed at the hotel for roughly 9 nights and I must say that the overall experience was very nice and we really enjoyed our stay. Hotel staff is very hospitable and friendly and their guidance for the city and tour arrangements was also very prompt and outstanding.

It was our first visit to Istanbul so I have nothing to compare this hotel to, but the impression was really good. The location is ok, not far from the city center just in front of a very beautiful mosque. The reception in the hotel is friendly and helpful. And what I liked the most are the fantastic traditional interiors...

I was fortunate to stay at the Grand Durmaz Hotel in June 2015. It is in the heart of Istanbul near all the major tourist attractions i.e. Grand Bazaar; Blue Mosque; Hagia Sophia. The tram stop and metro is 20m from the hotel entrance. The hotel is tastefully decorated. The rooms very comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. Very good value...

It was about 5-7 mins walk from Aksaray metro station. It took us 30 minutes from the airport with the metro and the location was convenient. We booked this hotel because of its location. It was 30 minutes walk to Sultanahment and 30 minutes walk to Taksim. We never took a Tram or Metro during our stay. We could walk...

Great service! Lovely room, good food. Really enjoyed the stay. It's right near the tram and train station which is perfect for getting to the airport and the centre of the old city. The budgies were lovely. Didn't get to have a Turkish bath, but that also looked like it would be great.

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighbourhood Profile
Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighbourhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.

“On making your booking clearly state that you require a quiet room. When checking in remind staff of your request for a quiet room and if you subsequently have grounds for complaint, management cannot say that you did not make your requirements clear.”
