(also called Buyuk Londres Hotel). If you are new to the city it can be very confusing choosing a hotel because of so many districts. Here's a simple trick: Just remember this street: Mesrutiyet Cadessi. That is all you really need to know. There must be at least 30 hotels along its length, all minutes from metro (Sishane), buses, taxis,... More

The hotel oozes old world charm. As soon as I stepped in I felt like I had entered the 19th century. The staff is extremely pleasant and gave me a free room upgrade. The roof top bar is a must to visit for the wonderful view of the Bosphorus.

A grande dame of a place, well appointed with curiosities from the past. Very affable and attentive staff. Good breakfast (included). Very close to Istiklal Caddesi, the pedestrian mall, and within walking distance of Galata Tower and Taksim Square. Upper floor rooms facing street have a view.

Grand Hotel de Londres is a beautiful incursion back in time, in a classic setting that will bring you back a century ago. The lobby and the hallways are beautifully decorated with antiques and the hotel preserves the feeling of the last century. The location is excellent, in the back of the Istiklal Boulevard where all the life is, 24/7.... More

This is a unique experience staying in a museum like family owned hotel since the 1960s. The best rooms overlook the Golden Horn with balconies. It is rumoured that Agatha Cristie stayed in this hotel as well as the neighbouring Pera Palas. The location is central and almost next door to the Pera Museum. Buffet breakfast is served in the...

If you are looking for a hotel with all the mod-con's don't stay here, they still have old TV'S, but a minor set back. We loved this hotel, it oozes with history, decorated in the Ottoman Style, lots of wallpaper and very ornate. Beds not too bad, location is amazing parallel with Istakal street and all it has to offer.... More

I have used this hotel on and off for the last 15 years. It is hard to find reasonably priced, decent hotels in this area. I used to find this outdated hotel charming with its kitschy, orientalist style. This time I came with my family, and decided to book one of the suites. The room looked more shabby and faded...

When you get to the Hotel you will be immediately flashed by the charme from the outside. The Lobby is wonderful, both the receptionists are very kind and helpful. Our room was a smaller one and due to some problems the former guest returned after it had been cleaned so it wasn't clean when we entered it. The staff was... More

Lovely decoration and the atmosphere takes you back to "Pera" of 60s. What an experience... Very romantic... Hotel owes its name to the first tourists in the 18th century as the English were the first westerners who began to explore Istanbul. Very "Orient Express" style, definitely needs some renovation but well, we still love this hotel. Some rooms have very... More
