We stayed for four days in this hotel with friends, celebrating 60th birthdays. The pluses are: it is well located for the cultural and shopping sites of Istanbul. We could (and did) walk for hours every day using the hotel as a base. The service was fine, as was the breakfast, the mattress was good, the shower was hot. The... More

Stayed here for three nights in May 2014. Hotel had an awesome location- couldn't be closer to the Grand Bazaar. I was concerned about the room size after reading some other reviews but found it totally acceptable- spacious by European standards. The roof top restaurant had a great view of the sea and friendly staff. Two minor complaints about the... More

We had a mixed experience at this hotel in Istanbul. When we arrived on a Saturday, jetlagged and exhausted, the hotel was in total chaos. Three separate weddings were booked and we had to wait 45 minutes before we could even get on the elevator. There was a problem with the people at reception finding our reservation and we eventually... More

This is the second time I have stayed here with my family. Breakfast is great and the rooms very pleasing. But the location has to be the best in Istanbul and within walking distance to all the trams, tube, Grand Bizarre, Blue mosque and all the other places of interest and I mean all. Tour offices are everywhere, street sellers,... More

We stayed at the hotel as a bit of a treat after a long stint of travelling. The staff were initially a bit cold towards us but got better. We had really wanted to get massages and treat ourselves in the spa but it wasnt quite what we expected - short hours and only one staff member. We booked through... More

This is our sixth return to this hotel. Just as good and seems to be getting better with each successive visit. Check in is very friendly, quick, and easy. Excellent elevators and quite adequate for the hotel size... Never having to wait long. Rooms are clean, spacious, well appointed with a seating area. Complimentary bottled water provided daily.

The President is ideally located for visiting all the famous Istanbul sites in the Old City. Our room had a balcony with a splendid view of the Bosphorus – great experience. Although the Spa is average the massage was excellent.Unfortunately I can’t say the same for the breakfast

Easy to get to and from. Close to Istanbul's great tram-line. Easy walking distance to ALL the major attractions. Do not miss the Basilica Cavern. We were there during Ramadan so rooftop restaurant was closed for supper. However, rooftop terrace off swimming pool has wonderful view of city daytime and nighttime. Great for cigar smokers.
