I recently stayed in Istanbul's Grand Pennisula Hotel with my partner in February 2015, the end of winter and 'low season' in Turkey. We paid 30 Euro's a night, which was very reasonable and got a room on level 5 which was beneficial as it didn't connect to the central staircase. PROS - Location was excellent, in the heart of...

Great prices including breakfast when you book online! Very friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful terraces but unfortunately the outdoor breakfast tables have been taken in for the Winter. I was put in a basement room which was much brighter than I expected,nicely decorated and perfectly clean. It was just downstairs from the reception area so it was occasionally a bit... More

Friendly staff, very close to main Sultanahmet attractions. Rooms are small but it is OK if you only sleep at the hotel. Walls between rooms are thin and you can hear sounds and talk from neighbour rooms.

This is a great hotel with really decent family rooms in the Sultanamet area. We stayed in the family type rooms (two semi attached rooms with a common bathroom). Everything was small, but charming. Would recommend taking the hotel up on the transportation offer as we had some difficulty communicating the hotel address to the taxi driver when we arrived... More

This hotel is located within easy walking distance from many of the big attractions. Heaps of great restaurants in the area and 10 mins from the tram which travels to Galata bridge, the spice market and the ferries to cross the Bosphorus. If you're only in Istanbul for a couple of days the everything you would have time to do... More

We had a great stay here. Very comfortable and extremely well located. After I had left Istanbul I realised I had left a couple of items of clothing behind in the wardrobe. I emailed the hotel and they very kindly arranged postage to Australia. Would definitely stay here again and also recommend to others.

This was my last hotel after traveling for almost 3 weeks in Turkey. Front desk when I arrived was friendly, helpful and sincere about offering me anything I could need. I arrived pretty late, so took advantage of their airport transportation, which was excellent and used it to go back to the airport the next morning. They upgraded me to... More

Stayed at this wonderful hotel for 3 days at the end of October 2014. the staff are ultra efficient and knowledgeable about their city. The hotel itself is adjacent to most of the sights of the city and has a great view from the roof terrace. Highly recommended
