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...

Room was clean but small. There was no view from our room but we were on the 1st floor. The view from the terrace was spectacular; one can see Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque as well as the Bosporus. The hotel is situated within walking distance of the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Grand Bazaar. A special Thank you to... More

Rast Hotel is just a few blocks from the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia, as well as Topkapi Palace and the Basilica Cistern. The room was a little bit small. The staff is quite friendly and explained how to walk to different nearby places. There was a wide variety of food served for breakfast. There are many restaurants and shops... More

Stayed here in August 2014. Great location close to tourist sites. Room was clean. Traffic noise at night was terrible. Room A/C does not work well. Beautiful rooftop terrace. Nice staff. Atmosphere is nothing special and tired looking.

Booked two days in this small hotel to try it out when outbound and hastened back to it on the return through Istanbul, not for its rooms, though these are perfectly adequate, but for the location and the accommodating and friendly staff. We gleaned lots of interesting and useful local information chatting with the front desk people, while breakfast on... More
