The standard rooms are very high quality at a good price for Istambul, the location... More

We visited President in Sultan Ahmed for the socond time - and we really enjoy this hotel. The loaction just 5 minutes walk from the Grand Bazar is perfect, the rooms and the bathrooms are very nice. The breakfast is delicate and has a wide spread. The rooftop restaurant offers nice food and a fantastiv view of Istanbul.
