When we were there in May we enjoyed this hotel. It was very easy to find our way around. We really enjoyed the breakfast every morning. The staff was nice and helpful. and was able to show us on the map where everything was. The room was very clean. We really enjoyed Istanbul and would stay at this hotel again

My husband and I stayed at Buyuk Keban from the 2nd-8th of August. The hotel has an excellent location which made our stay wonderful. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the tram station, 5-10 minute wall to Vezneciler metro station and a 10-15 minute walk to Aksaray station (the other metro line which goes straight to the airport)....

All at a very reasonable price. In steaming... More
