Close to the easy-to-use tram line, close to major attractions! A great place to come home to after a full day in Istanbul. Walk to the Grand Bazaar, restaurants and shops! an ATM on every block. English speaking staff was helpful. Large hotel with rooftop pool and rooftop restaurant. Spotless, very good breakfast buffet included. Reasonable rates given location. Walk... More

Booked a terrace suite at the Best Western for the pirce of an upscale hotel and turned out to have an amazing experience. Terrace suite overlooking the Marmara sea, the Blue Mosque. This hotel is ideally located next to the Grand Bazar and 1 block from the tramway. Excellent breakfast on the rooftop restaurant with amazing views.

Its a nice Hotel. Excellent staff and very clean. The rooms were quite small, but adequate for a short stay. The Swimming pool was more of a plunge pool and there was an extra cost to use the Steam and sauna facilities which was a bit strange. Overall its big attraction was its location, with only a 10 minute walk... More

One of the best hotel I have ever been. Excellent food, very close to City center, very polite people. Nice pool and excellent view from the top of the hotel. Taxi transfer included if you stay 3 or more nights.

The hotel is clean and well managed, with small rooms consistent with those of a 3 star hotel in the Istanbul historic district. Easy walk to the Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque, decent brunch buffet with many options (including honeycombs!). They have a sports bar on the bottom floor, decorated as a kitschy English Pub that will appeal to Brits... More

We stayed for four days in this hotel with friends, celebrating 60th birthdays. The pluses are: it is well located for the cultural and shopping sites of Istanbul. We could (and did) walk for hours every day using the hotel as a base. The service was fine, as was the breakfast, the mattress was good, the shower was hot. The... More

Stayed here for three nights in May 2014. Hotel had an awesome location- couldn't be closer to the Grand Bazaar. I was concerned about the room size after reading some other reviews but found it totally acceptable- spacious by European standards.
