My friend and I each had a very comfortable room with all the mod cons and just a few steps up to the glorious roof terrace (which was also the breakfast area) where we could relax in the evenings with wonderful views across the twinkling Sea of Marmara and the Bosphorous. Our hotel managers could not do enough for us,... More

My husband and I stayed here for 7 days and found the room comfortable and a great location. It was fairly priced , rooms were clean and the staff friendly and accommodating. The hotel had a Bed and Breakfast feel without the intrusion of owners. (Note: If you use the refrigerator leave the wood cabinet door open so it works... More

Lovely small and friendly hotel in a beautiful little side street, very clean, great shower, comfy beds. Staff really helpful and will arrange the cheapest airport transfers for you! I couldn't believe how close we were to all the historical sights. Istanbul is an amazing, unique city. I will definitely be going back, and would certainly stay at the same... More

We originally booked at the Hanedan, which is a block away, but we were given two rooms instead at the Grand Peninsula, a sister hotel. The rooms were pretty good. They were not very spacious but the furnishings were tasteful and the bathroom was great. The pillows weren't comfortable though and we had difficulty controlling the a/c. The hotel is... More

We booked a room at the nearby Peninsula Hotel a few months before our stay, and the booking process was already very professional and prompt. We asked for airport transfer, which was very efficient both ways, with a comfortable van and very friendly drivers. On arrival to town, we were told that we had been moved to the sister-hotel, the... More

We had a large double room which was spacious, clean & comfortable with a useful fridge and free safe. No view from room but that was fine with us. The roof terrace are very pleasant and does have good views. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was standard Turkish style (fresh breads, jam, cheeses, boiled eggs, biscuits) and was a...

I stayed at this hotel on April 3-12. I originally booked a five-night stay, but opted to book an additional three because I felt so at home. Staying in Sultanahmet was a far better option than finishing out my Istanbul stay in the extremely gritty New City. I would encourage other foreign women traveling alone to stay at the Grand...
