Hotel is very close to Grand Bazaar entrance as well as tram stop. Some good restaurants nearby (Seos, good and reasonably priced). We had the presidential suite and were disappointed there was no balcony. In fact when checking in I was advised by reception there is only one room in the hotel with a balcony (one of the junior suites).... More

Average hotel for food and comfort - a little dark inside and the bar is kind of weird with big wheels and lots of green. 10 minute walk to historical part and great view of the sea from breakfast terrace

We spent two periods of three nights here either side of a trip to Gallipoli. The location is excellent, a step from the Grand Bazaar, an easy walk to the Sultanhamet area and a decent hike to Taksim. Our rooms were comfortable and well maintained; one bed was harder than the other which had a mattress topper. Wifi worked well.... More

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
