Our family ended up staying longer than we had planned, and since we had no availability for the extra hotels at Hotel Agan where we were staying, we decided to look at some of the hotels near by. Raymond Hotel is a tiny, boutique hotel just a few doors down from Agan. Raymond has been recently renovated and is kept... More

I was very impressed with Görkem who was at the front desk. He helped me book a tour, answered my questions on things to do in the area... More

The hotel is few meters away from Gulhane tramway station, and same from Marmara train station, and a short walk from topkapi, blue mosque and aya sofya [sultanahmet area]. It has everything near, a mini carrefour, a... More

Great location but a dismal place, surrounded by other hotels which all seemed nicer, cleaner and friendlier. I am quite tall (195 cm) and asked for a double bed. The first room was an attic room into which I practically had to crawl in, the second one had a construction beam under which I had to duck to pass. They... More
