I did a lot of research and decided to stay at the Tomtom Suites on our trip to Istanbul this March. After a long day of walking in Istanbul this hotel felt like a little oasis and we always looked forward to getting back. It is a wonderful and very authentic place located in Beyoglu, literally two minutes away from Istaiklal. The rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The one we stayed at had a view of Bosporus. The breakfast was sumptuous and served at the top floor of the hotel with breathtaking views of Topkapi Palace, and Hagia Sophia and, of course, the Bosporus.
That being said what makes this hotel truly special is its staff and especially Nural. Their hospitality made our Istanbul experience truly exceptional. They know how to listen and then give you personalized advise on places to see or to eat at. Nural even went as far as providing us with a detailed hand drawn maps of Asian side!
Istanbul is an amazing city to visit, but I must say that without staying at Tomtom we would not have appreciated it as much. So try Tomtom - you will enjoy it!
