I have stayed with artists at the hotel couple of times, we are all happy and pleasant stay at Grand Hotel de Londres. Hotel staff is really friendly, location is superb and literally behind Istiklal street. Hotel has a character (and famous parrots) that none of the old hotels have around the area.

Good: location, price. Bad: inconsistent internet, cold room, noisy... This is an ooooold hotel with some historical character. It's eccentric and not without charm. But it is not especially comfortable or practical. Best part is location.

The hotel has a great location (and interestingly, not noisy at all), and the staff is always nice and helpful. Decoration is a mixture of antique stuff with irrelevant toys - there are even rooster statutettes on the terrace with a magnificent view :-D. Highly recommended.

I just feel I'm in the right place when I walk up the few steps to the reception. Every time. The sun shining on the plush velvet and reflecting the gold in the bar, the parrot reflecting if or not to answer to your strange bird sounds, the urge to go up to the terrace and look over the roofs,...

My favourite hotel in the world. Like a living museum. You truly feel like you are staying in a different era. The staff are all lovely and helpful with an old world charm. It's in a lovely tucked up corner near the bustle of pera but also away from its madness. Applause ensues!

I loved the fin-de-siècle atmosphere of this hotel. It felt like I had just stepped off the Orient Express train. The plush red velvet curtains and talking parrot in a cage that would suddenly start up lent a superb ambience. I also preferred to walk the grand staircase all the way to the top of the building rather than using... More

What an amazing experience! Although Agatha Christie mostly slept a few doors away at the Pera Palace, she also had a room here. So which one to visit? Well, we went to both hotels, and definitely, Londres was the more interesting one by far. With the quirky art, antique telephones, plush furniture, and more, it’s like having a drink in... More

I loved my stay at the grand hotel londres. It's the most charming and beautiful hotel I ever stayed at. The staff is very nice and helpful.

The location is great, near the Taksim square, and easily accessible. Walking distances to almost everything. The city is awesome, with tons of back alleys and narrow streets. The staff was helpful when it comes to arranging transportations and payments. Although there was a hug he mixup with our reservations, and we did not get the rooms we reserved. It... More

It was the fourth time that we went to Istanbul, and as so many others, we really wanted to go to Buyuk Londra because of Fatih Akin's films (who, by the way should claim royalties...). We could only afford the most economic room (standard). It was August, we knew it was going to be hot, so when booking the room... More
