“Very good place to stay and worth spent money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We spent there one week and we liked it a lot. It is located quite close to the old town, very easy to get around. Is clean, nice, worth the money spent. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Heard other rooms too much only on one occasion when either they were arguing very loud or were from very loudly speaking countries. Don't know which really. So can't say that the rooms can be heard through really. We also used the pool and it was very helpful after long walks in sun. Food was also very good, better than in most other places I've been. That goes to hotel restaurant as well. Thanks to the hotel staff for a nice visit in their hotel! :)

- The staff was very helpful and friendly!
- Great location: 10mins walking from the Grand bazar.
- The breakfast was not rich (like most 4-stars taksim's hotels) and not poor but good enough.
-The conditioning system in the breakfast room was centered on a unique place so most people were sweating when taking the breakfast.
- There was only 2 lifts for the whole hotel, too much rooms and too much people using it so we had to wait for about 10mins every morning.
- The rooms were quite small, there was no table and chairs around it like in most taksim's 4-stars hotel.
- Great hotel, rooms were clean, quite and comfortable.

Stayed here in June as part of a tour group. The room was moderate size by European standards, and relatively quiet, given its location being fairly central to many sights of Istanbul. The AC was controlled by remote, and wi-fi worked well. I can't comment on the gym, because we didn't have time to use it. But I did visit the indoor pool, which was really too small for lap swimming; not sure why they had it at all. Breakfast buffet was filling, with a wide assortment of cold and hot dishes, some that were cooked on the spot.

Stayed at Mosaic Hotel as part of our Gate 1 Tour of Turkey. We stayed at the Hotel for 2 nights before the start of our Tour and then for 1 night at the end of the Tour. For the first part we had a big room with 2 single beds, the AC worked well and the bathroom was small but good. On our return stay we had a small room with a queen bed. The AC worked fine but the shower was awful, very slow and water running off into the room. We requested another room but were told the hotel was full. Anyways, the Hotel is in a good location, very safe, close to convenience store, restaurants, shops, tram station, mosque, etc. Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, etc. is about 30 mins. walk from the Hotel. The Breakfast & Dinner Buffets were very good with plenty of food & choices. Coffee & Tea were great too. The staff speaks English but didn’t appear to be very attentive or friendly. I would give the hotel a 3 star instead of 4. Also, the noise from the other rooms & hallways can be very loud and disturbing while you are trying to rest.

Stayed here as part of a group tour, with an extension for a total of 6 nights. Rooms are ok, with three single beds for a triple room. Traffic congestion is not uncommon so rooms can be a little noisy. Aircon works well for us. Shower drains slowly. Breakfast is included. A wide variety of choices with made to order omelette and Turkish style pancakes. There is quite a variety of bread to choose from, assorted cheeses, vegies, cereals and hot dishes. Assorted drinks as well. Had a look at spa centre, which consists of a nice indoor swimming pool, Turkish bath, gym with a couple of treadmills, jacuzzi with cold water. We were told that these are free for hotel guests between the hours of 12noon to 6pm. Mosaic is located in a cluster of hotels including Zurich, Klaus which are right across. Walkable to tourists' attractions. Near tram line (Laleli-5min walk) as well as Aksaray metro station (AksarayAVM), end of the Airport metro line (10-15min walk to hotel). Taxi costs 45 tl (Turkish liras) form the airport. Each trip on public transport cost 3tl, if planning to use often, it is probably worth considering getting an Istanbulkart for 5tl, with each trip costing around 2tl. Preloaded Istanbulkart can be shared with many others (there were five of us using this one card). Convenient stores, restaurants, clothing stores, etc are all in vicinity.

Welcomed families (as many hotels I researched didn't want children <6yo). Friendly, English-speaking staff and good size room. Great breakfast buffet. Good location, a walk to sites or only a few minutes to Metro stop that got you anywhere in the area.

On the downside, we looked forward to relaxing /playing in the pool with the kids at the end of the day, so were very disappointed that the pool was freezing cold! Walls are paper thin, so you hear everything your neighbours say & do!

A conveniently-located hotel, only a few blocks from the tram line; near the Grand Bazaar and Sultanahmet Mosque; friendly staff; delicious and expansive breakfast buffet. The rooms are adequate, but not huge.
