The location is great, you can go walking to all the main Istambul sites. All the staff is very kind and helpful, they even helped us in an argument with a taki driver. Food is very good. Rooms are not very big, but very clean. They are lovely with kids.

Warning - Be very Careful – this hotel has very good reviews but be careful with your booking as they may just cancel and leave you stranded. I booked this hotel through booking.com and was sure all is fine, as I had received confirmation etc. Two weeks later they sent an email to say you have 24 hrs to reconfirm... More

We spend our 3 nights at the Raymond Hotel in Istanbul. The location is just perfect, in a little street only 2-3 minutes walk away from the Haiga Sofia and the Blue Mosque. The tram station is directly at the end of the street. The personnel was very friendly and really tried to make our stay a good as possible... More

We picked the Raymond Hotel based on a friend's recommendation. Overall, I was pretty happy with it. The location can't be beat. All the major attractions in Istanbul are within a 5-10 minute walk (Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Ayasofia, Spice Market, Grand Bazaar). The breakfast was also top notch. A great selection of cheeses, cold cuts and hot dishes. You... More

Surrounded by restaurants, the main landmarks and at a minute walking distance to the tram station of Gulhane. This tram station takes you to grand bazaar and aksaray etc. from one side and towards new istanbul accross the galata bridge from the other side. Topkapi, Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern are all needless of a tram but you better... More

This hotel rates very highly in our estimation, situated within walking distance of most attractions also close by the tram station which is ideal for venturing further afield. The hotel was kept beautifully clean, although our room was a little small it was adequate for our 5 day stay. Breakfast choice was excellent and staff helpful throughout the hotel. Would... More

We stayed in Raymond hotel for 3 days and enjoyed a pleasant stay. The location is excellent, very close to Hagiasophia, Blue Mosque and the markets. The rooms are small but clean and well maintained. The staff is friendly and very co-operative. They are pro-active and give helpful information to the guests. Overall a good place to stay!

Perfect location, friendly staff and very clean rooms. Highly recommended for couples and friends considering the cost, but frankly, not recommended for families with kids because of small rooms and limited space. Breakfast wAs Ok. It is a walking distance from Eminonu Port and Sultan Ahmet Mosque.
