Hotel was nice, staff very helpful and happy to help. Rooms are comfy enough, decent mattress, but TV channels are limited for English language programmes. WIFI speed okay for general browsing but could be faster for downloading video. Have stayed three times this year on business trips to Istanbul and the hotel has been ideal for that. Note taxis from...

I've checked in for 3 nights on Sunday afternoon and I'm writing this review few hours after checking in. Good things first: It is a hotel with a good location, everything is pretty much close. I've walked few blocks and found the Metro and Tram stations, an opened Exchange Office, ATMs and few mid-range restaurants and plenty fast-foods. I liked...

Visited the hotel with my wife in Jan, rooms are ok but the hotel is going through some refurbishment. Hotel is located in a good area if you want to visit the old town but if you want to go to taksim area then you have to take the cab or metro. The guys at the reception are more keen...

The hotel is a walking distance from tram (up the street 5 min.) and Sultanahmet (10 min.)The room was spacious and the beds very comfortable. The staff is very helpful and the breakfast was delicious. The area around hotel is not so great, there are some restaurants and shops. The only disappointing experience was at the bar.

Hello guys. Me and my wife are living in this hotel right now. So far excellence has prevailed in all aspects.

If you like walking, everything is near you. The check in was a little rough, but everything else was great. Best things about it the perfect attitude of the staff, and the lovely quite sleeping. You can see the sea from here. A market in front of the hotel. A nice breakfast.

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.
