“Nice and central, which has its ups and downs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We stayed for 4 nights on a city break to Istanbul. The hotel is located on a busy road, but also close to the tram stop with cheap and easy access to all the historical sights. There are plenty of shops and restaurants locally, both cheap and expensive.

The rooms are on the small side, and there are no good views to be had, but the bathroom was a plus point, as was the air conditioning. Also the room was clean. The rooftop swimming pool was an attraction, fairly small and shallow but also fairly quiet and a good sun-trap. Service was friendly, although a little slow.

Overall a decent place to stay in - not the best, but certainly not the worst. A lot of Turkish visitors, so they must be doing something right.

I stayed here for 3 nights. I chose it because it had a rooftop pool. The hotl is quite well located although the local area is quite Russian orientated and busy at night. Check that your room is not overlooking he noisy late night outdoor restaurants. Service and breakfast are good and the rooftop pool is a nice area to relax

Stayed here on a flight and hotel package via BA which was not expensive. The rooms were fine as was the breakfast and the staff helpful. On the whole we got what we payed for as you can't expect 5 star at 3 star prices. The power of their chemical cleaners was the first negative impression. It is also a favourite with Russian tourists which provides a dual cultural experience. It's very near the first-class tram system which gets you anywhere for 3 tl which is a big plus.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms overlooking the central shaft.

This smell is the strongest remambrance about hotl Trend. I have no idea what kind of chemical could be used but the door into bathroom should be closed all the time and open window did not help. Actually it was not exact odor of bleach or similar but it was very heavy for smelling.
But hotel Trend is the first hotel with good breakfasts in Istanbul for last 5 years of my visits. Tea is more pleasant than coffee from machine.
Personnel at reception is friendly, helpful and knows English very good.

The Hotel was not the most amazing of experiences. It gave us what we wanted...a bed to sleep after a long day of sightseeing. Our first room was not a double room and after requesting for a larger room with a window (the first one had a window into an inner duct) we got one with a window to the main street (which yes is loud but hey this is Istanbul :-)). That allowed us to see some direct sunlight and get some "fresh" air. The AC is controlled from the Reception so you need to call them and request for lower or higher temperatures.
Breakfast was OK. The area is not fantastic as you already leave the "nicer" part of Istanbul.
The Hotel's location is also not correctly indicated in the Map of Travel Advisory (should be corrected)
