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

What we reserved as "Bosphorus view suite" turned out to be a room only. Although room service is... More

The hotel staff very helpful, booked restaurants and gave us a great information guide at start of our trip. View at the cafe/ restaurant is excellent. Hotel does not serve any alcohol, this was a small negative as would have loved a cold beer sitting watching the views. Rooms a little tired, could do with an update, but if you... More

This is what I would consider an average basic/value hotel. It does all the functional stuff well enough such as rooms, cleanliness, staff, WiFi etc etc. Criticism falls on their use of low energy sensor lighting everywhere which means you are often walking down the stairs in close to darkness and the feel of the hotel is therefore a bit...
