I happened to find this hotel at around 7:00 pm in February, it is quite clean. Hot water for shower is perfect. And it is quite near the Old Palace, very convenient to walk there. The service (24 hours) here is very good, a kind heart young guy will help you almost everything, and

Actually, I didn't have any expectation on this hotel because the price was fairly cheap. However, It located very near the blue mosque and many good reviews. The room was ok. It's a bit small but I can't complain. It was clean, high speed wifi, very cozy and warm. Especially, breakfast was fantastic. I don't know how they make a... More

Great little hotel. Great view of the Sea of Marmara. Nice English speaking front desk. Be sure to ask for an omelette at breakfast. Get a room on an upper floor for the best views. Really fun to watch the ships and the seagulls go by. Very close to the Blue Mosque and the Hippodrome.

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. It was a Junior Suite Room with a sea view. In fact it was a big construction view at the moment. The room was a bit shabby , the TV did not work, no tea-coffee facilities, which was quite disappointing. The breakfast was poor. Sometimes there was not enough... More

Our first family trip to Istanbul was a total happiness and joy. We book Bucoleon because it is near to all tourist hot-spot especially the Blue Mosque and the rate is more competitive than the rest of the hotel within the same radius.
