“Magnificent!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Beautiful hotel positioned in the heart of Istanbul. Walking distance to everything. Staff were amazing. Friendly, helpful - nothing too much trouble. Rooms were clean, comfortable & decor made them a pleasure to come back to after a day of sightseeing. Manager - Ergin Akar a delight & organised a great guide for a day in the city. Breakfast was plentiful & delicious with a beautiful view of the Blue Mosque from the balcony.

Room Tip: We had a couple of rooms on more than one side of the hotel. All equally quiet, but ones with view o...

Nena Hotel is definitely worth considering when you are looking for hotels in istanbul's tourist area. Location is superb, you step out of the hotel and there you are, so close to tram line, blue mosque, hagia sofia, basilica cistern, grand bazar and a lot of restaurants and money exchangers are hardly a few steps away. Everything is actually more close than it appears to be on map. View from hotel terrace is amazing, simply great for breakfast and dinner. Hotel staff is really friendly and welcoming. They are always smiling and ready to help in case you need any assistance. I think having a good staff is a huge plus point and Nena hotel scores full marks for that. We stayed in Economy room which we found really comfortable and absolutely fine, so what if there's no view from the window, you are not going to sit there and stare out of the window the whole day any way. Over all economy room is great for two people, its not that small, there's still plenty of space to move around and keep your baggage. Its a good deal with that price. Food is good too. We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay and as per our experience its highly recommended!!

Room Tip: Economy room is a good choice considering the fact that its quite reasonable as well as comfortable.

Just spent 4 nights in Istanbul - and a stroke of luck that we stayed in such a marvellous hotel situated right in the middle of the action of Sultanahmet. Smallish room with mini balcony facing the street, but no noise at all and who cares about size - we used it only to sleep. Choice of food at breakfast was unbelievable, as was the view from the terrace. To a man (and woman) staff were outstanding. All in all, an unforgettable experience.

A great hotel with lots of luxury touches you'll love. We stayed in room with a mini-balcony facing the street so that was lucky for us. Tasteful light-colored design, amazingly comfortable bed, great breakfast (with a breathtaking view), and a little more space than most Istanbul hotel rooms- it costs a bit more than average but it's worth it. Perfect location for tourists too- 5 minute walk to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the waterfront, or the Grand Bazaar.

Our air conditioning wasn't working for a little while and repairing it made a bit of a mess. It would have been nice to have received a little discount or something b/c of that. It was the only thing that prevented me from going 5/5 instead of 4/5.

Room Tip: Street view if possible

What did I like? Everything about it! The Hotel Nena was spectacular. Everything from the views, service, hospitality, maid service, hotel design, the managers, Ali (the waiter) in the terrace restaurant, the proximity to all of the main attractions in Istanbul. Everything from the Hagia Sophia, The Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Topkopia, Underground Cistern, Bosphrous Seaside, Bosphorus Straight. All within walking distance. The Metro comes in handy if you have had enough walking. The Hotel Nena is beautiful! Very clean. I was alone and stayed in the ventilation draft view, which means no view really but the room was so nice it didn't even matter. All you had to do was go to the terrace to see gorgeous views of Istanbul. The room had a safe, air conditioning, mini bar, nice shampoos and soaps. I can't say enough of how much I enjoyed my stay at the Hotel Nena. I would definitely want to stay there again if I ever go back. You won't be disappointed. The service there was outstanding. Very friendly and helpful in every way. What a wonderful experience. Istanbul has so much history. It is something everyone should experience. I give the Hotel Nena a 10 out of 10! 10 being the best! Hotel Nena made me feel safe and welcome. I highly recommend this hotel. I am a very satisfied customer. The Hotel Nena exceeded my expectations. I love beautiful design and comfort. This place had it all. The Managers are ourstanding! They helped me get a refund on my car rental because Istanbul is just too busy to drive in. Their food was delicious. I hope to return again in the future.

I have just spent four nights in Hotel Nena with my wife Elena and our daughters and we have loved our choice (related to my wife nickname ... NENA !). . A truly magnificent stay in as warm place, clean friendly at walking distance from Blu Mosque and Santa Sofia. Manager and staff always at our disposal, ready to help and sort out any needs. I reccomend it greatly.

A fabulous boutique hotel to stay in, super location, within walking distance to all the main sights and the tram. Very welcoming and friendly, we felt so at home, beautiful rooms, immaculately clean.Delicious breakfast, with lots of choice served everyday, we also ate dinner in the hotel most evenings as the food was so good, compliments to the chef, and of course the view is magnificant, very relaxing and enjoyable!
Many thanks to Ergin Akar and all the hotel staff for their helpfulness and friendlyness, we so thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will most definitely return soon. Highly recommended!
