I stayed 2 nights here on advice of a friend, and found it to be an unusual, well-located hotel. In some ways, it is the equivalent of a 2-star Paris hotel, but 10 times more interesting and half the price. Room was small but adequate, bed was comfortable, bathroom tight but usable, furnishings nice. Common areas very well-appointed, many interesting... More

A hotel that is not without its interest, even, some might say, charms. But for us, it was a disappointment. If Istanbul is somewhere you've looked forward to visiting because it's genuinely a special location, then find somewhere else. Less chic, just shabby. The decor isn't 'tired but elegant' - as I hoped - but simply old. The best illustration... More

So glad we found the Londres - full of tradition, historic knick knacks, great birds, and wonderful people to help us! It is not a new hotel - it has not been refurbished very much - but it exudes the turn-of-the-century feeling that made Istanbul famous! We had the Agatha Christie room - very large, several opening windows, noise at... More

Grand Hotel de Londres is at a fantastic location: very close to bus transportation to the airport and taxis. The street right behind it, Istiklal is lively both during the day and night. Despite being in a very lively area of Istanbul, the Hotel is quiet. The rooms are well cared for, the hotel is clean and breakfast is delicious.... More

(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...

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
