Hotel location is simply great, 100 m from the Beyazit tram station (perfect connection to Atatürk airport), nice clean rooms, wifi was working fine. Very good breakfast with everything, I would say. Walking distance to Blue Mosque, Ayasofya and Yerebatan Cistern just 15 min. Little bit expensive, but since it is BW hotel, you can be sure that you will... More

Good location - The hotel is close to lots of shopping areas including the Grand Bazaar, Koska (Turkish delight / Helva chain), and many brand name clothing stores. Decent Breakfast - All the basics like cereal, toast, and juices/coffee. The only thing missing was a good fruit selection. Friendly and Helpful staff - Very helpful staff that was quick to... More

The hotel in general is good, nothing fancy but clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet is convenient and has a good variety of food. I didnt like the location although it's within walking distance from main tourist attractions but the area is very commercial, highly populated and not the best in town. Next time i would stay away from the... More

The hotel is very well located in the old part of the city. It is close to all major monuments and virtually opposite the Grand Bazaar yet very quiet. The Beyazit tram station is only half a minute away. There are a lot of restaurants and supermarkets around, and it is very safe to walk even late at night. The... More
