For a superbly located hotel with ample space and a brilliant looking lobby, The Legacy Ottoman is far from being 5 star...3 at most. There is plenty that knocks this hotel down to a two star rating, but the establishment is not without it's positives. The hotel is amazingly located, taking roughly 10 minutes to reach historic sites such as... More

Let's start with the good. Beautiful hotel, fab lobby nice rooms and wonderful decorated throughout. Now, reception desk appear to think that dealing with the guests is below them. Check in took forever and was done in a surly manner. They seemed to be always on the phone and rarely acknowledged that you were waiting for them. Once when I... More

After holidaying in Northern Cyprus we extended our holiday with two nights at the Legacy Ottoman, The hotel was over the top, ostentatious, filled with gilded furniture and everything we wanted and expected. The room was large very tasteful, an excellent shower in the bathroom. the bed was comfy. The breakfasts were excellent, with lots of choice. Would I go... More

Excellent location in the heart of the old city of Istanbul. Within walking distance of all the major sites and market areas. Beautiful views. Decent breakfast included. Magnificent lobby and generally a grand old hotel that has been well maintained. Most rooms are decent and comfortable but ask to see first. We would stay there again. Staff very helpful and... More

The hotel is in an old building, but has been tastefully maintained. The A/c Worked all night which was great. (We had stayed at other Turkish hotels where the A/Cs kept shutting down during the night). Rooms had nice big windows. In the middle of the historic area of Istanbul, which we enjoyed immensely. The staff were great. However initially... More

We stayed on mini belated honeymoon and the experience was amazing! We have been all over the world and came with trepidation as some of the reviews where terrible. I am taking the time to write this as is absolutely not fair! I have a suspicion that there might have been some construction back in April or that hotel management... More

The staff were very nice, although there are a couple who need to be introduced the concept of deodorant. The guy in the lobby who shines shoes does a dynamite job! Highly recommend him. The breakfast had oodles of options. We ate dinner there three times (once by ourselves, and twice by arrangement of Gate 1). The meals are nothing... More

LO takes up at least half a block well-situated between Eminonu ferry piers/Galata bridge and Sirkeci Station, with fast, frequent light rail access to Sultanahmet tourist zone. Great spot to walk Galata and up to the funicular. There are a couple blocks of good Turkish restauants just beyond Sirkeci; Food and drink stores are limited. The neighborhood is residential business... More

I have been traveling for many years in over 30 countries for business and leisure. I chose this hotel because it received decent ratings but it is a 2 star at best. With dank, dark rooms and common areas, and a horrible odor, it really is awful. the breakfast was mediocre with the breakfast room in a large ballroom with... More

Actually this is a 3 star hotel with 2 star facilities, but seeing some of the other reviews here I need to give a balance the overall rating, so people have a fair idea of the actual hotel quality. Before I get into the issues, I should say the hotel is well decorated and "looks" very rich and well designed.... More
