Conveniently located 300 yards from the streetcar stop and just 2 stops from the Grand Bazar, we where pleasantly surprised by the newly remodeled hotel. Our room was on the 7th floor overlooking the fashion district and with a picturesque view over the Bosporus and the Asian side of Istanbul in the East. We enjoyed the indoor pool and sauna... More

A comfortable and clean room, everything from shampoo, body lotion etc. in the bathroom, an adequate choice in the minibar, superb choice at breakfast (there were 6 or more choices of fresh fruit!) and just a few steps from the major sites of Istanbul. If you intend to do a lot of sightseeing, this is truly a hotel you should... More

When you walk in the lobby to Venera Hotel there is a portrait of Lenin. That's about all you need to know about this hotel that clearly caters to Russians. Most of the TV channels are in Russian and they serve pickled beets at breakfast. The breakfast overall though was pretty good, and the view is OK. It's still a... More

Verena ist ok, depeding what you pay for it. The rooms are clean and modern, but the materials somewhat cheap. Mine was small and I could see some of the Mamara See across roofs and satellite installations. It was 515 where at least its a lot quieter than in the rooms towards the street. The location is connected well to... More

Hotel is still a good walk to attractions but a short tram or taxi. Top floor bar is nice. Breakfast was excellent. Hotel rate was good even though we booked at short notice. BUT, the room was very small for two adults with big cases, we could hear through the walls (which was entertaining). Not really geared for English speaking... More
