Stayed here and wish I had had other options (Turkish airlines staple for the overbooked flights by the looks of it). Can only say that this is NOT a 4 star hotel as far as I am concerned. The rooms looked like they had seen better days. Internet is SLOW. Rooms are not very well sound proofed so you you... More

i have never been made to feel like such an unwelcome burden before. The staff is rude and seem to resent me asking questions. I'm a young man traveling alone and was made to feel like a beggar instead of a paying customer. There are far better hotels available. Keep looking.

My wife and I were allocated here after a missed connection. Service in front desk is poor. Bell boy is very helpful. Hotel is old and needs refurbishing. Beds are very old fashioned and not very comfortable. Towels in bathroom need to be changed immediately - old and hard when touching the body. Restaurant on seventh floor has good service... More

Once again, we were sent to this hotel by TK on our flights back from KUL and another 20hr stopover in IST. Welcome to this museum, as you can find a 14 inch CRT TV in its room. I would very much appreciate if someone could please tell me how this hotel got it's 4*s? The breakfast was OK but... More

Due the delay of my flight, Turkish Airlines arranged separate rooms for me and my friends. I was expecting modest basic hotel, but fortunately the hotel was very nice. Room was clean with good view. Minibar prices were very decent. Selection of the minibar was usual comparing other hotels worldwide. I spent my time also at the hamam of the... More

The hotel is located just next door to historical places like Topkapi and Aga Sofia, so one will feel him- or herself in the very heart of old Istanbul. The inside decoration and whole atmosphere is very cozy and calm. Perhaps, because of the relatively old building the hotel is situated in the smell in the bathroom is a bit... More

We stayed for two nights here and I felt the rooms were ok but the restaurant seriously lacked the menu anyone wants..... There was hardly anything to choose to eat since we were vegetarians we had a really tough time..... The positive aspect is the Location which is very close to the Grand bazaar etc.....

I spent the night in this place with my three kids on the 26th of August 2014. The staff do not explain things clearly and the female manager working the next morning was too rude and menacing when asking me to pay for my minibar service. I have never experienced such bad customer service manners before. The male staff at... More

We missed our connecting flight and were shipped to this little hotel in the middle of the old city and were happily surprised that it allowed us to visit some stunning historical monuments and experience vibrant Istanbul at sunset and night time. We took pictures old mosques, explored the world famous indoor market and kept our eyes out for pickpockets.... More

From most reviews you'll notice that the hotel pretty much only caters to passengers stranded by Turkish airlines. That's probably because Grand Yavuz would otherwise have no clients whatsoever and are desperate to take advantage of the poor people forced to spend the night there against their will. Unfortunately that was our fate too. Turkish airlines promised us a 5-star... More
