I have recently stayed at the Gradiva Hotel and apart from the friendliness and willingness of the staff to assist, everything else was from average to below that. Definitely no value for money here, cleanliness is very average, condition of the rooms is way below average, no effort to even "hide" the negative facts. The photos in the website have... More

We stayed for 4 days before a cruise. Location is chief asset. Breakfast good. Staff is helpful, nice, bathroom modern and clean. Room extremely CLOSE but not unexpectedly so. Thought we had booked a sea view. No matter our city view was of a wall ...if you could get to a window to view. Beds hard (my experience this is... More

First of all, I have to say I was anticipated a lot from Gradiva from what I had been reading in newspapers and on the web site. So, my expectations were pretty high. Rooms are small but nice and clean, and decoration is OK. The worry started with breakfast : only very few things available from a set short a... More

Great location, spacious and clean rooms, helpful and polite staff members! Breakfast options are limited but what is offered is good quality and very tasty. I suggest the Turkish breakfast option. Great hotel with fantastic views from the bar on level 8. Would definitely stay here again!

I stayed in a flat close to this hotel, and I wanted to catch a cab for the airport. Bora Buyer helped me arrange a cab for the airport, even though I wasn't staying at the hotel. He also discussed the safety issues, carried my luggage for many flights of stairs, would not accept a tip, and was very amiable.

Stayed for Thursday and Friday night whilst visiting Istanbul on holiday. The room was nice, if small and the hotel bar on the roof has a great view. However - the bar becomes a very lively (and loud) nightclub on Friday and Saturday nights. If you aren't partying anyway, don't bother staying. We weren't warned of this and didn't receive... More

The location of the hotel is quite fine. Many shops are nearby and the Falstaff Tower can be reached as well by a 5 minute walk. Staff is very friendly and helpful. But... Everyone who books the hotel needs to be clear about 2 facts: during the weekend you can't really get sleep due to the loudness of the club... More

I never write reviews but this place was just awesome, super nice staff, v helpful. Hotel overall, location and amenities were perfect. Room was super small though (deluxe), and we kept hitting our shins and not really enough places to put your stuff down, but otherwise pretty darn perfect. There are gigs in the basement which was fun, even though... More

The location of the Gradiva Hotel is great: just in front of the Galata bridge on the Beyoğlu-side. The hotel itself could be better. The staff is friendly and willing to help (could speak better English though), the interior is nice and modern, but the room me and my friend stayed in (403) was really, really small and warm. Seems... More
