I visited Hotel Buyuk Keban this summer with my family. We arrived late at night, but our two booked rooms were well groomed and clean. In the morning we were welcomed by a beautiful and well stuffed breakfast buffet. The buffet had everything, also appropriate food if you're travelling with children. The hotel manager, Merva, was very nice to help... More

Buyuk Keban Hotel is located in a nice and safe district in walking distance from the tram station that connects with the main attractions of Istanbul. In fact the are only 4 tram stops to Hagia Sofia and Sultanahmet (Blue) Mosque. It is also very close, about 4 minutes walk from Valens Aqueduct (Bozdogan Kemeri) and Sehzade Mehmet Mosque. The...

The hotel has a central location and is situated close to the train station. the rooms are clean, a little small, but for us it was ok because most of the tine we were out visiting. The breakfast was very good. I will surely return to this hotel when traveling to Istanbul.

The Hotel is clean and staff is friendly. The rooms are small and the bathroom is even to small to change your mind in there. :-) However this all didn't bother us since one is only there to sleep and shower. What was really bad as that one can hear the TV or people talking next door. We were on... More

Good hotel - accessible with many shops around it. It is a short walk to a tram station. I found the staff very friendly and helpful. My room was okay. Wide choice for breakfast. I enjoyed my stay. I also liked the fact that I could weigh my luggage before leaving for the airport. The staff helped me secure my... More

It was my first time in Istanbul and this hotel had a great location, great staff and the room was perfect. The bed was super comfy as well. The bathroom is quite small and the shower didn't drain very well. We were in a great location, restaurants, shops and convenience stores very close by. Upon arrival we were greeted by... More

Great surprise was to be met at the entrance by staff aware of your arriving by car making place to park in front of the hotel on a busy street. All staff was very friendly and helpful.

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.
