4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

my room was quite small, but from this place i was able to see many of the most popular buildings. breakfast exceeded my expectations and staff was always polite. just for nightlife poor, because hotspot beyoglu is too far to go every night by taxi.

The hotel is located in the heart of sultanahmet, very close to the tram station, blue mosque and grand bazaar. Its pretty economical for a four star and also has a decent breakfast. It also has its own hammam (separate charges apply), with a friendly masseur named Tolga. The rooftop restaurant & bar has a splendid view and surprisingly at-par... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Room was clean, cannot complain but bathroom was a bit tired. We had a minibar in the room and the second day we received a fruit plate from the hotel. This and $10 euro off coupon for massage services are offered for guests staying 3 or more nights. I was reading reviews... More

I was told, jokingly (or perhaps not) I'd get a free room upgrade if I wrote a positive at Booking.com (which is where I booked the place) afterwards. I was given the upgrade despite disagreeing with the deal. That said, the room and breakfast were both pretty good, and the wifi worked, so no complaints from my part.

We were put up in this hotel by Turkish Airlines during a long stop over in Istanbul. The hotel is very nice and has a grand reception area. The rooms we were given were quite small but clean and the bathrooms were sparkling clean. The bed was comfy too. Unfortunately I didn't get to try the buffet breakfast, as we... More

After a tiresome journey, the first thing about this hitel which made us feel really nice was smiling staff and welcome drink :) I requested for a sea view room only to be told that they are all deluxe rooms and cant be provided for the usual 4* booking made through #MakeMyTrip. Room was good however: 1.AC would reset to... More

We recently stayed at the Grand Yavuz hotel. The room was terrific, the staff VERY helpful and the location was perfect. We were within a very short walk to everything in the old city at Istanbul. Great little restaurants and hookah bars within a block walk, and the hotel even had a little spa.

The touted by Turkish Air as 5 star hotel. Trip Advisor gives it 3 star. I cannot give it more than one star. The food was bad, staff not friendly, room filthy and small. There are much better choices in the area at same price. It looks good in the pictures, but it is misleading.

I was sent to this hotel after flight problems with Turkish airways. The hotel is ok, nothing special, small rooms with annoying smell, towels had a strong detergent smell, the food and the view from the 7th floor restaurant was great. Overall, I don't think I would stay here if I had the choice.
