We walked to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia etc but tram was also very close connecting you to all parts of the city. The hotel itself is very nice, more than... More

Loved everything about this hotel. Great location, fantastic buffet breakfast, clean and spacious room, secure, staff are happy to help (even gave us souvenir gifts!), concierge is VERY helpful giving us lots of advice about what to see, do and how to get around Istanbul. Great value for money, would definitely stay here again! :):)

I stayed at the Buyuk Keban for a week in April and overall it was a positive experience. It's a 15-20 minute walk from the Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, and the main tourist attractions. So it's near the heart of the action but in a calmer part of town. The staff were very attentive and helpful. My room was... More
