I researched hotels in Istanbul before I booked. The Tayhan Hotel appeared to have everything that I was looking for according to their website. However their website is full of lies. Let's start with the positives. Although the hotel is not in a great area it is close to all the major attractions. The wifi is good and the hotel... More

We stayed here on our first trip to Turkey, Istanbul. It a 3 star hotel, but it is decent. Our room was very clean and was quite spacious, and the bathrooms had little to no sign of dirt and shabbiness. The location is OK, but bear in mind that it is in a busy-like street, so you may hear noises... More

Hotel Tayhan hotel is located in part of the city called Laleli which is so close to the all major monuments you would want to visit in Istanbul - Grand bazaar, Sultanahmet mosque, Ayasofiya, Topkapi, etc. Although initially it doesn't look attractive just after a day you realize that all you need is clean room, bed and shower because this...

I spent 6 days at Hotel Tayhan in September 2013 with a group of Danish students. The hotel was nice, clean and cheap. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel has a good location in a very local neighbourhood and it has the most wonderful roof-terasse with a splendid view over the city and the sea.

Simple, non-luxurious, basic, but clean. The receptionist speaks English relatively well and understandable. Breakfast is fine but it was the same everyday: bread, cheese, olive, (delicious) yoghurt, (watery) coffee, and tea. The location is downhill from the main road and it means also uphill to catch tram line. Close to attractive and historical sites. The hotel has very soundproof window... More

Instead the hotel sent us to a hotel called "Red Rose" (50m distance from Tayhan), which you can not even call "a hotel".The hotel room was dirty and... More

Hi all. I spent 5 days in Istanbul during Easter 2013 and I chose this hotel considering the pictures and opinions provided here. I am satisfied of my decision. The hotel is situated in a street full of life, shops and small stores, near Beyazit (recommended square and mosque) and Grand Bazaar. In 2 min times you can find a... More
