“Great location, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Nena during our visit to Istanbul last December. The location could not be more perfect. Also, as we visited during off-peak season, they respected our request and placed us in a suit in the top floor. We had a great view of Blue Mosque from our verandah. Most of the Sultanahmet attractions were at walking distance (5-10 min).
The hotel gave us more discount when we paid in cash. The luggage service was great too - as we stored our luggage at reception in the morning of our check out and picked up in the afternoon before heading to the airport. The Sultanahmet tram station was also within a five minutes walking distance. Overall, I had a good experience here and I would definitely suggest this hotel to my friends.

Stayed here for 4 nights, having booked a standard room for the ridiculous total price of £170. The hotel is in a fabulous location right in the middle of Sultanahmet. The public areas are beautiful and the rooftop breakfast room has one of the best views you will ever get from a city center hotel.
The staff are some of the most helpful and friendliest staff I have ever met and could not do enough to improve your stay. Free drinks on arrival and nice box of Turkish Delight on departure.
The standard rooms are small but beautifully presented and very clean. Unfortunately at this time of the year the air con is used as a heater and our room looked into the middle and was above the air con unit which made it too noisy to open the window. This led to a stuffy and uncomfortable first night. Not helped by an extremely rude family next door who seemed intent on waking up the whole hotel at 0530.
After a polite enquiry the next morning we were delighted to be upgraded to the best room in the hotel. This is the one on the top floor with the view over the Blue Mosque. It was stunning and added so much to the stay.
I have no doubt there might be better small hotels in the area but you would struggle to find one which provides such a pleasant stay.
As to Istanbul itself.....wow.

Room Tip: If you can afford it try and book a superior room as the are on the higher floors and better views.

The hotel is really nice. Very good location in Sultanahmet area. Walking distance to Blue Mosque and Santa Sofia. Close to the Grand Bazar. Very kind and helpful staff. Very good breakfast. Natural orange juice to be paid extra (4TL). Wonderful terrace with nice vies to blue mosque and Santa Sofia at the roof of the hotel where you can enjoy breakfast.

We stayed in nena hotel in december end,its very convenient location and the best part of the stay was the view during breakfast from the terrace... absolutely loved the breakfast there...rooms were quiet clean but i dint like the bathrooms at all very very small..we took the double standard room but it looked like the economy room as per the size and pictures...they have free shuttle one way either to or from the airport.we used it to get to the airport was very comfortable!i think for the spot this hotel wins it!yea but i must add we stayed on the 1st floor and the people next to us were SOOO noisy it was soo anoying cud'nt sleep for 2 nights because of them...so be careful on that part!

Room Tip: i guess getting a suite is a gud idea!

We booked 2 rooms for 3 nights for 370 euros. The hotel is located a 20-minute taxi ride from the airport. Fare 45 Turkish liras. We were immediately shown our room and put . The rooms are very clean and comfortable . The room has a kettle, tea and coffee. The restaurant is on the roof. The restaurant has a great view of the Blue Mosque . The breakfasts are delicious ( omelet , sausages , salami , cheese, vegetables , fruit, tea , coffee). The hotel is very close to major attractions. For smokers in the hotel has a very cozy hotel sad.Personal very friendly. Back to the airport we were taken on a free shuttle ( for people who book the hotel for 3 nights or more ) . We recommend this hotel who wants to enjoy Istanbul's dream.

From the moment you step inside the entrance to Hotel Nena, located in the heart of Sultanahment, you are made to feel like one of the family, and as though the manager and staff have known you for years. The rooms are clean and very comfortable, with very nice spa items in the bathrooms and complimentary water provided daily. The view from the rooftop restaurant and breakfast room is amazing - St. Sophia and the Blue Mosque overlooking the Bosporus and Golden Horn. The breakfast buffet is excellent and makes you want to linger for hours. But, the most exciting city in the world awaits you, with the Kapali Carsi (Covered Bazaar), just a short walk in one direction, and the major museums of the city in the other. Fabulous restaurants are located nearby and the hotel staff are gracious and happy to assist in your choice. This was probably my 40th visit to this fascinating city, and the Nena will be my choice for future trips.

Room Tip: Less street noise in rooms on upper floors, although we were on the second floor and it was very qui...
