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

The hotel is situated in a central place facing the Golden Horn making it easy to access many places of interest. The rooms are clean with good views if you are lucky enough to be at the front of the hotel. On our tour we stayed on two occasions, at the beginning and for the last night so we experienced... More

The rest of the reviews are pretty consistent with mine. Good location, decent hotel, small rooms, clean. We were on a tour so I don't know the room price, but drinks at dinner were reasonable for Turkey hotels. Street noise was unbelievable if facing the Golden Horn, but the shutting the window solved that problem. We were there in cooler... More
