We stayed at this hotel because it was convenient for Bayazit University where I was working and the main tourist sites. It is an almost ideal location. Just a few metres from Beyazit Square where the Grand Bazaar is located with tourist locations like Blue Mosque, Aya Haghia and Topkapi only one or two tram stops away, yet in a... More

We stayed here for one night on our way through to Geneva, and it does have a great location. Very central for all the main tourist sites, but beware it is not a quiet hotel as its at the heart of the old town. The place really needs a re brand and an upgrade but it's a good hotel and... More

We selected this hotel for our British Airways deal and we were pleased that we stayed here. The rooms are standard Best western style, a bit small for liking but offered a sea view.

I have been to a lot of hotels in various continents and this was not my best experience. I found the hotel staff somewhat racists, especially to people from Istanbul and people of color (South Asian and Black). They did not allow my Turkish friend to go to the restaurant in the hotel even though I was living the hotel... More

We stayed for four days in December 2014. Overall, the staff is very friendly and professional. They really try to find a solution to all the requests.

Wonderful hotel. Located slightly off the "main" street of Istanbul. Easy walk to the Grand Bazaar, the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. Staff were all very helpful and organised everything with a minimum of fuss (tours, airport transfers etc). Views from the restaurant both for breakfast and dinner are awesome - looking out over the Marmara Sea to the... More

Duty Manager was not helpful, unwilling to listen and rude. As a diamond member, expected more- he told my status has nothing to do with the hotel. Why stay here then. Bedroom tiny. We will leave in junk for much.m
