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

This hotel was fabulous in all areas. The hotel is in a quite area surrounded by many stores, restaurants and walking distance to many attractions. The staff was exceptional which made our stay better than expected. They helped in all areas to include advice about transportation, food, etc. The manager and Mr. Mahmoud went out of their way to make... More

My boyfriend won a trip to Istanbul for a week and we stayed at the Hotel Grand Washington. We were really excited with the idea to stay in a 4**** hotel for the first time and were looking forward to staying at this place after seeing the pictures on the website. We were quite happy at our arrival, the welcome... More

We were a group of travellers who stayed for one night in this very clean and comfortable hotel. The location is good for a peaceful and quiet stay but equally good for transport links to the main attractions - the tram is just around 2 or 3 corners and at only 3 Turkish lira pop it's great value for money....
