I was worried about this hotel, due to the average ratings it got on Trip Advisor. I traveled with zero expectations, but boy am I glad I lodged here? Yes I liked my stay. Breakfast selection was excellent. It's a walking distance to Taksim square, Bosphorous and golden horn. To avoid the public transport (it was a mess when I... More

The location of the Hotel is 15 mins very steep uphill climb to Istiklal street. We got a room at the back and were told that to get road facing rooms with a good view , we would have to pay TL 30 more. So we took the back room. Rooms are decent and average size. Reception service is courteous... More

The hotel is comfortable and the food is good without being quite excellent. It is handy for a walk over the Bosphorus to the sites on The Golden Horn and is close to the town centre. Staff are quite helpful and on the last evening we had a very good meal for a reasonable price in the hotel. The room... More

Would definitely recommend this hotel for it's location, efficient service, friendly staff and comfortable accommodation. My very comfortable room, overlooked the Golden Horn, with "postcard", city views. The staff were very helpful, spoke English, gave directions, places to visit and general information about the city. The breakfast selection was very healthy and varied, emphasis on local foods. Families were well... More

The breakfast is nice and the hotel is in a very good and central location. The hotel is attractive, however the beds are very uncomfortable and the staff was overall friendly but somewhat unprofessional at the end of my stay. They told me upon checkout they would have to check my room to make sure I didn't take anything from... More

Expect from the view and the location (near taxim and galata tower). Rooms must to be renovated. It is noisy at nights because in front of the hotel there is a big avenue. They told us that the parking area was for free but we paid 10€ for 2 nights. And the most annoying we found a cockroach in the... More

Good Location, average services, very helpful staff. the pool is in the basement and stuffy I didnt go swimming. The rooms are very basic and mine had the view of the inside which was a damper on the vacation. The hotel is regularly cleaned but the Air conditioning broke down twice in our 4 days stay. The breakfast is good... More

Although I couldn’t remember the name of our hotel on our previous visit to Istanbul. I was saying what a great location it was in and blow me as we went across the Galata Bridge, we pulled up outside of the Grand Hotel Halic, which we had stayed in 20 years earlier. It was very a déjà vu moment. The... More
