We had a great stay in this grand hotel. Loved the decor and so much character compared to big impersonal modern hotels. Staff very helpful and friendly.excellent location and not far from taksim. Taxi stand right outside.

I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions, both as a solo traveler and with friends or family. Location is just off Istiklal cad, in Beyoglu, and the Golden Horn is at its feet, if not blocked by the ugly square box of TRT studios. Historically, together with Pera Palace hotel, this used to be a choice destination for... More

This is a lovely hotel in an unbeatable location. The hotel is right off of Istiklal, the main pedestrian street in this area of the city, and you are within walking distance of almost everything (about a 30 minute walk to the Hagia Sofia, as a reference point). The rooms were very comfortable, the staff incredibly friendly and helpful, and... More

Wonderful place, right in the middle of it all but away enough from the noise of Istiklal Cad. 15 minutes to Taksim and about the same time to Galata-Bridge by foot. Great terrace, very friendly and helpful staff. Nice bar, only the breakfast could be more diversified, especially if you stay longer. Hope to come back with my family.

Great location and nice old style of the hotel. The hotel has a big terrace (with a bar) with an amazing view of the city. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The doors to the room don't appear safe so I recommend leaving valuables at the reception.

Location is the best (close to Istiklal Cad., in warmer months great view over Golden Horn from terrace bar), staff are always friendly and helpful, interior is beautifully retro and website is honest about the rooms. I have been coming back regularly since 2009 and can really recommend this hotel.

I'm a solo traveller from London. My standards of choosing hotels are basically 1) safe 2) authentic(so no international chain-hotels) and this hotel fits them all--plus a high value of money. I was there last week and I was absolutely delighted. Located on the extremely vibrant Istiklal Cd the hotel is literally a door to the "other side" of Istanbul.... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Grand Hotel de Londres and I would love to stay again at the de Londres. From another era in time, the hotel was full of character not to be found in modern hotels.

The hotel des londres. Is a delight, close to the action in Pera and taksim square and the Galata tower. Built in 1892, as a destination hotel for the Orient Express, it retains a cluttered romantic museum feel. The food in the Terras bar was great, with views over the Golden Horn. The wifi was a little flakey and the... More
