First of all, the location of this hotel is great, it is located near to a metro station, a bus stop, not so far tramway stop, several different restaurants and it's in a quiet neighborhood for Istanbul. The management demonstrate full commitment to provide the guests with all facilities for rest and comfort. Wireless Internet connection was excellent. The hotel... More

The hotel consists of two parts, adjacent to each other. At first glance there is no difference in quality between them. Located on a small street near the Grand Bazaar and the Marmaray station - subway, which passes under the Bosphorus. Within walking distance is also Kumkapi fish market and fish restaurants there. Few steps from the hotel there are... More

It is a very beautiful hotel, in a quiet place. It isn't in the center of instabul, but there is bus station very close to it. The service is amazing. The breakfast consists many different tastes. I stayed in a double bed room and is suitable for people that want only a rest

We made our reservation based on facilities available in this hotel. Please don't make the same mistake, it's all a big lie. While the pool is there, open and you are welcome to it, it sadly lacks water. Staff doesn't seem to find that problematic since its 'open' and the water should be 'delivered any day now.' Sauna... Dream on.

Placed in Aksaray, just 2 tram stations away from the Grand bazar and 4 stations from SultanAhmet where the main tourist attractions are, I would give 4 point out of 5 for placement, 3 points for the welcoming lobby and the friendly reception staff - but only friendly cause when we said we had a problem with the heating system...

The hotel was on very good place, close enough to everything and far enough to sleep the night. Although the breakfast was normal and not real Turkish, all services were OK. The room was as they promised and not a "Photoshop". the stuff was very helpful, and tried to help in everything, on all languages.

The absolute worst hotel I have ever stayed in. It is sooo bad that I felt compelled to write a review while still here. It is absolutely the noisiest hotel I have ever been in. Because the price is cheap the hotel is filled with young people who scream, drink in the rooms and basically party all night!! After complaining... More

We have stayed twice in Grand Unal and I would say that this is one of the nice and good looking 3 star (if I am not wrong) hotels at the Aksaray & Laleli area. The location is pretty good - it is a walking distance (like 15 min) to Grand Bazar and maybe another 10-15 min from there to... More
