Great staff, amazing food at breakfast (seriously, don't miss it) and beautiful view from the terrace. The room was small but the beds were very comfortable and the place was spotless. I am looking forward to staying in the same hotel when we come back to Istanbul.

Spent 10 nights at the hotel. Ideal location. Good breakfast, decent shower and bed, make up for many shortcomings - poor lighting in rooms and landings, Centrally controlled air-conditioning cannot be adjusted, TV in room was the size of a tablet and had very poor reception of international channels, no second key, no laundry service. Found staff very dedicated and... More

my parents have stayed here a few times and recommended it. We stayed 6 nights which entitles you to a free airport pick up and drop off which was very handy. The location is the best you can walk to all the main attractions and the tram stop is very close. The view from the 6th floor breakfast room is... More

We stayed at this hotel 4 nights. It is within a short walking distance of the major attractions, and very close to a tram stop. Breakfast is served on the rooftop terrace, which provides an amazing view of the city and its attractions, particularly the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sofia. The staff is very friendly and helpful. In addition... More

As others say, a grey lady in need of some renovation. That said, the staff was great, good advice on getting around, watching for rug dealers. I was rousted by a tour group that came too early, (5:20 am!) the concierge made sure the bus waited for me, and had a sandwich waiting since it way too early and no... More

The Rast hotel is strategically located in the 'old' part of Istanbul. The most important highlights are not too far away (5-10 minutes walking) and if you are looking for a restaurant you'll find plenty in the neighbourhood. The rooms are OK, although a bit dated. The bathrooms need some renovation, they are clean but you can clearly seen that... More

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights and we felt that it was too long and could not wait to go home (we did not enjoy Istanbul due to cleanliness issues, how people are generally trying to rip you off and rude even in Starbucks, nothing to shout about places of interest and we did not enjoy the food -...

I stayed in this hotel for two nights with my husband and our baby. When we checked in, we were given a three bed room, a three SINGLE beds! When we asked for a double bed room, he reluctantly changed our room and gave us the smallest room ever! The room was too small that they couldn't fit the cot... More
