“Great Location and Great Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Stayed in the Levni Hotel and Spa as a family group over Easter this year. It was our first trip to Istanbul, and we all loved it. The Hotel is in a great location, very easy walking distance to lots of major sights, and to the ferries to take you over the Bosphorus, to the New City and the Asian side. It is also right next door to the light rail as well. The staff were all very friendly but I would have to individually mention Nural, on Guest Relations. Nural was a marvel!! So much information to impart and so helpful when it came to booking restaurants etc. On arrival Nural sat down with me and gave me a couple of hand drawn maps which had the hotel and numerous famous sites located on them, then he proceeded with different coloured highlighters to draw routes on the maps how to walk to each area. As it was my first visit to Istanbul, this was invaluable. We used those maps for the whole week and found it extremely easy to get around and know where we were all the time. Fabulous idea. The rooms were clean and had everything they needed. Our room had a few problems, when you had a shower the bathroom flooded!! And there was also a funny smell in our bathroom all the time. However, even with this, I would stay in the Levni again, (but ask for a different room) as the location and Nural made our holiday very easy and enjoyable.

I wanted to stay in the Old Town area of Istanbul to be within walking distance of just about everything and this hotel certainly fit the bill. Upon arrival we were greeted by a host with complimentary drinks and provided not only the standard tourist maps but also hand drawn maps to clearly explain and show everything in the area.

The concierge could not do enough for us, Nural was always on hand to ensure there was nothing you needed to make the stay more pleasant. The hotel is within walking distance to everything, there is a train station entrance 50 metres from the hotel, and trams are not far away either. The hotel provided an istanbul travel card to allow us travel on the train / tram / ferry. Its also an easy walk across the bridge into the New Istanbul area.

The decor is new, the security of the hotel is what you would expect, its next door to government house as well, breakfast and dinner were excellent, there is not much in the negative I could really say about this place. Great pool, sauna, and beauty spa downstairs within the hotel too.

If u want to stay in historical peninsula area in Istanbul, this hotel is the best choice. Why?
1- very safe place (near governorship)
2- nice landscape
3- Magnificent breakfast
4- Perfect spa & pool (temperature of the pool is perfect)
5- walking distance to historical areas( blue Mosque, hagi sophia, Topkapı palace etc).
6- easy transportation facilities to go anywhere in istanbul

By the way if I were u, I will book this hotel directly from itself. If u book your room directly from the hotel, the hotel gives u very nice gifts which u can never forget...

Stayed here with my friend over the 1st May long weekend. We had a fantastic room with a view of the Bosphorus and great space. The trip was a birthday gift and the hotel had even left a complimentary cake and bottle of wine. Mathilda met us at reception and I can only say her welcome, help, maps, guidance and general loveliness was exemplary!
The hotel is right in the middle of all the key sights but just far enough away to be an oasis. Great breakfast included with a wonderful omelette chef. The hotel also offers a treat of delicious biscuits, cakes and local delicacies with tea and coffee just around 3-5 when you have walked all round the city! How thoughtful and welcoming.
To top everything off, after day 3 of sightseeing I treated myself to a 30 mins massage with the gentleman therapist - AMAZING!! I have had massages all over the world - this man is gifted! I would go back just for that!
But all in all, lovely hotel rooms, good food, fantastic staff and perfect location! What more could you ask for! Thank you so much!!

We stayed at this hotel in May 2015 and we thought it was great. The location is close to all the big sites and the standard is good. What we were most happy with was the service. When we arrived a French girl sat down with us and showed us what to see and where to go. We also really enjoyed the breakfast and the wifi that was super.

Visited Istanbul for 4 day break and booked in at the Levni after doing lots of on line research. This is a lovely hotel from which to base yourself as all the main sites are literally with 20 minute walk from the hotel. The rooms are clean and well appointed and quiet (except at prayer time as our window faced the mosque). It is also very safe as it is next to the police HQ and armed officers on patrol walk around outside the front of the building. The fitness room is sufficiently equipped for a work out, the pool, sauna and shower rooms are a bonus after days of site seeing. Spa treatments especially Hamam are brilliant and well worth experiencing. Staff helpful and friendly. There is excellent choice at breakfast buffet. All in all this is value for money and I really enjoyed my stay at the Levni.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 4th floor as that puts you in the roof line and have a good view

We (2 couples) spent a long weekend in the Levni. Its location is ideal, the rooms are great and we had a terrific view over the Bosphorus. However, what separates this hotel from most of the city break hotels that I've ever stayed in was the service. The staff are exceptional and well led by the outstanding customer relations managers, Nural and Grete. Reception, concierge and restaurant staff were equally good. I would not consider staying anywhere else should I visit Istanbul again.

Room Tip: Ask for one with a view over the Bosphorus
