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

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

We stayed at the Legacy Ottoman with a Gate 1 tour of Turkey. It is in a great location right by the new mosque and spice market and there are many shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. The hotel is in a renovated historic building and our room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The air conditioning in our room... More

We were really looking forward to our stay at the Ottoman Legacy following a superb stay in Fethiye at the Ece Saray. Our initial impressions on arriving at the hotel / checking in were very positive - the building really is impressive. However, the initial room we were allocated was the exact opposite, being very dark, even dingy and situated... More

Stayed here for three nights at the beginning and end of a 13-day tour of Istanbul. It is a 7 minute walk from the Spice Market and 10 minutes from the foot of the Galata Bridge in the Old City. Hotel is only ten years and is mash-up of contemporary rooms (Hilton Garden level) and Oriental luxe (faux French furniture... More

I went to the Legacy Ottoman Hotel when I wanted to take a break from the crowds of the Grand Bazaar. I had become separated from my traveling companions, so I decided to try the hotel rather than a cafe as I searched for a place to have tea. The people at the reception desk welcomed me and indicated that... More

The hotel is centrally located in the old city of Istanbul. It was walking distance to many main places in Istanbul. We spent there 3 nights on June 2013 as honeymoon experience. We stayed in corner suite and it was very spacious. They arranged Honeymoon arrangements for us. Check-In was smooth, The hotel staff service was very good and they... More
