We stayed at Tomtom for four days and it was a terrific base for exploring Istanbul. It is located down a side street and the location was great because it was quiet at night but close enough to get where we needed to go. Our rooms were very large and more than comfortable. Breakfast was included in our room pricing and the food was delicious. By the second day, the waiter remembered what we drank in the morning and had it on the table without our needing to request it. In the evening we went back upstairs for cocktails. At any time, the view from the restaurant was terrific. Other reviewers have mentioned Nural, the concierge (front deskman) and it's almost embarrassing how much we like a man we haven't known for very long. He had great recommendations, was very patient with all our questions and was just so warm and welcoming. The entire staff is terrific but we interacted with him the most and he made our stay. On another leg of the trip we had to stay at a different hotel in Istanbul, and it only confirmed that Tomtom is top notch. So Great- stay here if you can.
