First I was allocated to a very small room but then I asked for a change but once that it was late (I arrived around 1am) they only gave me new room in the next morning. Anyway I was happy with the resolution. The Concierge lady was really nice and very helpful! Great English!

Firstly the hotel was clean and in good location. The Manager/Owner Hannan was superb and his guidance was well appreciated. He took time to help us with the tourist places of interest. I would visit there again. The cold/hot water dispensers on the 2nd floor were useful. The front office staff were all excellent.

Perfect localization in walking distance from most visited historical attractions. Plus many reasonable priced restaurants, shops, supermarket, the Grand Bazaar - all in the close neighborhood. Nice and helpful staff. Highly recommended.

The hotel itself is ok for what you pay but didn't find the staff very accommodating, in saying that most of Istanbul the people are a bit rude but all in all the hotel was ok, Istanbul is very interesting and cool! Just the people aren't the nicest

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighborhood Profile
Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighborhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.
