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

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

Our tour company booked this hotel for us in the Laleli district of Istanbul. The rooms are very neat, the beds comfortable, the staff is friendly and helpful, breakfast for us was included and was delicious. There is a cafe located in the lobby called the White Cafe, it has a very distinct internet cafe feel to it. By far,... More
