It is in a great location - so close to the Blue Mosque and Ayia Sofia, the Grand Bazaar, Hippodrome, Top Kapi Palace but away from the noise on the main street. Just steps away from the tram where you can travel to Galata Tower, Spice Market, Taxsim Square etc.
One of the best things about Hotel Nena were the views from the dining room - they were fantastic. You overlooked the Blue Mosque, Ayia Sofia as well as having amazing views over the whole bay area. It was a delight having breakfast there looking out every morning. In addition, it provided a great viewing point for sunsets over the city.
The room we had was small but lovely. Very well appointed with a lovely bathroom. It faced out in to a tiny internal "courtyard" more like a venting shaft, so you could see only brick walls. But the hotel was very good at informing of this at the time we booked so that we wouldn't be disappointed when we got there. It didn't matter to us as we were not intending to be sitting in the room looking out at a view but rather was out exploring instead. We could see the great views when we wanted to from the dining room.
Staff were very helpful and friendly, both in reception and also in the dining room. There were two computers in the lobby lounge if you wanted to use them - these were free.
Overall a great place and would definitely recommend it.
