The hotel is central to the old town near the Blue Mosque. Breakfast buffet is fresh and nicely presented. Roof terrace with plunge pool is welcome relaxation after a morning of sight seeing. Only criticism was the music was too loud even two student daughters thought so!!! It would be nice to be able to read or listen to own... More

I stayed 6 nights at the Grand Washington Hotel. The positives truly outweigh the negatives. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The breakfast buffet provided had a wide variety and was tasty...plus the view from the roof top is simply stunning, especially at sunset. I had dinner buffet for 2 nights which was also delicious. The room we stayed... More

Ups-Excellent service, great location (close to tram stops) , quiet room, great breakfast selection and the view from the terrace was just amazing. Downs - poor room lighting, small room, poor wi fi connection. Overall I would stay here again.

Stayed at the hotel for seven nights and was delighted overall. The location was brilliant and the pool though a bit small was great. The comfortable sun beds were great for relaxing on after a day of sightseeing and shopping. The staff were great and the room was comfortable with the room being cleaned and towels changed every day. Breakfast... More

We stayed at the hotel for 10 days and couldn't have had a better experience. The room was a good size and clean, the location was within walking distance (about 20 mins) of the main sites. The service was excellent, especially the staff on reception who were always friendly and willing to help.

Our local travel agent came across this hotel after we gave up looking for somewhere on various websites. We spent a long time on Tripadvisor (and other similar sites) reading the reviews before deciding to book it for 4 nights at the end of May. In our opinion, the "excellent" and "very good" reviews are much closer to the truth... More

Had an opportunity to stay in this hotel. Terrible insulation between rooms (could clearly hear TV from next room). Very small rooms, very unfriendly barman on 7th floor. Slow Web connection in a room. The hotel is a way overpriced. Although breakfast was good.

Generally recommended. Still, travelers are generally looking to a hotel to provide comfort and hospitality after long flights and stressful travel; a hotel should not raise the stress level but this one sent my stress to unhealthy levels initially. The Grand Washington is a good value for a stay in Istanbul in many ways. Rooms are basic but comfortable, lobby... More

This hotel is just ok... I can see most people are complaining about lack of croissants etc., but indeed breakfast is rich even if average as quality, and view is great. The hotel is new and clean, with staff available to help, even if not exactly proactive. I had a quadruple room with my family, and I would say space... More

My friend and I stayed at this hotel for 4 days and on the whole it was a good experience, the spa was very nice and clean, the hotel room was also clean and was also very comfortable, all be it on the small size. The staff were friendly. On the negative side, we took the half board option which... More
