We stayed at this hotel after a tour and it was probably one of the worst we have stayed in. The best part about this hotel was their bar and bar staff. First of all one of the staff members at reception was so rude and unfriendly, my sister in law could not get into her room with her card... More

The hotel has located near the istiklal street and if you (like me) love this street, cafes and nightlife of Istanbul, the selection of this hotel is absolutely right! My wife and I (30y) stayed there for 4nights and all nights walking around Istiklal, Taksim, cafes and restaurants there. We were at 7th floor with a view of sea. This... More

Airco was dripping Road constructions during the night Breakfast: limited choice, no fresh fruit/ orange juice Unstable wifi connection Clean bathroom, nice shower Comfortable bed TV, minibar Nice view! Close to subway Normal price (60 euro) would have been reasonable but prices tripled because of conference.

My husband & I stayed at this hotel at the start & end of our Cosmos Grand Tour of Turkey, last autumn. Our arrival was too late for the evening meal but check-in was pleasant. The room (210) was ok, just for the night. It had a hairdryer but no kettle (not good for a supposed 4*) fortunately, we had... More

Hotel has a sweeping entry and certainly looks grand. Rooms ( had 3 different ones during my stays) clean, basic and all that we needed except for a kettle and tea:) Depending on rooms, walls thin and during our stay there seemed to be no understanding by some guests to lower voice after 10-11pm or caution their children to behave....

This hotel is the designated hotel for cosmos tours. We arrived in Istanbul a couple of days before the tour commenced. We had checked out the previous TA reviews on the Grand Hotel Halic and luckily decided not to stay there until the day the tour commenced!!! Reception was staffed by one person who had no people skills at all.... More

I stayed at the Grand Hotel Halic for 3 nights during my trip to Turkey fom 7/28/2013-8/9/2013. I would say that the hotel is pretty basic, and good for your average tourist who just wants a clean room, reliable free wifi and a relatively comfortable bed after a long day of sight seeing. The first thing that struck me about... More
