The hotel is in a good location right infront of a Tram station which takes about 10 mins into Sultan Ahmet area, The rooms are okay, not so spacious. We stayed here over 2 nights on the way to London for a stopover, I was supposed to be upgraded to a suite due to my membership status with IHG, however... More

I loved this hotel, dead centre of Istanbul. The staff were very courteous and helpful, from the minute we arrived. They speak great English, so be sure to ask as many questions before you leave the hotel lobby, coz language can be a problem for non-arabic speaking travelers here. The tram line runs right outside the hotel main entrance, and... More

We stayed here in late December 2015. This hotel is located about 15 minute tram ride away from the heart of Istanbul (eg: The Grand Bazaar). There is a tram stop right outside the hotel, but the tram system in Istanbul is very overcrowded and you will most likely be pushing your way into a carriage for the journey. If... More

Istanbul has to be one of the most beautiful cities that I have ever visited. The hotel itself is quite convenient. As per other reviews, the tram is a massive bonus. Getting around by taxi in a busy city like this takes patience. The tram line saves you time with interchange stations connecting to the metro which will take you... More

Our journey started from this hotel. It was excellent and comfortable. In addition, there are a lot of service such as tram, bus shuttle, small shops, restaurants, and taxis are available so easy. I remember that the employer in front desk was called Ali. He was helpful and friendly

Great location. Just opposite the hotel is Pazartekke Metro station, which takes you to the Grand Bazaar in just 5 minutes. The hotel is a bit run down, though. Shower in the bath. The water from the shower comes down in all directions, the shower head touches the ceiling. The light in the minibar in my room didn't switch off,... More

Visited for a short stay in December. The service is five star from the moment you arrive. Reception staff very knowledgeable and helpful. The breakfast buffet is extensive and well presented. The location at Pazartekke Tram stop makes for easy public transport links. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay here and would definitely return.

This may be my favorite Holiday Inn location. Extremely helpful and friendly staff, Turkish bath / sauna facilities, and a plentiful breakfast buffet. (And the staff understood gluten sensitivity.) They are located at a train stop with easy access to the airport (one transfer) and to the Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, etc. I would stay here again.
