We stayed here for four nights, and didn't feel like we got value for money for the Jnr Suite we paid for. The wifi was terrible, and this was very important for me as unable to easily download websites or play iPad games - the two things I was hoping to do after weeks on the road being a tourist....

I stayed in this hotel for five nights on a pleasure trip. I found this hotel the best regarding location, reception, house keeping, breakfast, and room facilities. All the attending staff specially the young man Mr Yildirim were very efficient and welcoming with a smiling face. The check in was very prompt, the breakfast was nicely presented and the rooms...

We stayed at the Best Western Plus The President Hotel for 3 nights at the end of July. From the beginning of our stay, we were treated with kindness and respect. First, the hotel provided a free car service to pick us up at the airport. The car and driver were there waiting for us as we exited the airport.... More

Unfortunately could only stay 3 nights at this fantastic Hotel. My first experience of Best Western outside of the US and Canada and was extremely impressed.

The Best Western President Plus is a bit of a fish out of water: a reasonably large international style hotel tucked down a side street in a central and congested part of Istanbul. Most hotels in the area are smaller independent places, with the larger chain hotels being located further out. We stayed here because it was our first visit... More

The location is pleasant very near from historic center (2 stops away by tram). Rooms are comfortable. Breakfast is correct with large choice. The restaurant on the terrasse is really pleasant even if we had to stay inside due to thunderstorm. Fitness / Spa / Swimming are correct.

I had stayed in a hotel belonging to this chain before so I had some idea as to what to expect. The hotel was average in more or less all respects but no more than that. I had a standard single room, quite cramped, looking out on nothing but rooftop for an other parts of the hotel. TV fine though... More
