Had a wonderful stay with the Tomsom. Beautiful, clean rooms on an extremely quiet street in a very central, walkable location. Fantastic, accommodating staff; tasty, very generous breakfast; and colourful artwork throughout. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend!

First of all, the location of the hotel is great. A few minutes walking distance to Istiklal street and all the attractions. You are greeted in a magnificent lobby and they have the most beautifully designed and huge rooms I have ever seen in my life. There are tools in the rooms where you can even make your own cocktail. The bathrooms are very big and clean. We will definitely stay again.

I have traveled all around the world, and I have never encountered a hotel staff that was so kind and helpful. We had a few challenges on our trip with PCR testing, changing money, etc., and the hotel staff went above and beyond to help us. In addition, the rooms were spacious and stylish, the bathrooms were beautiful, and it was right next to a fun, busy area with tons of restaurants and things to do. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could.

Amazing spacious rooms with a massive bathroom and excellent service throughout. Hotel is super clean and well decorated. Our guy at the the reception counter as well as the guy who served us breakfast every morning were all fantastic and co- operative. It's a stone's throw from istiklal Avenue (there is a narrow gully from which you can access istiklal) and very close to galata etc. Many nice restaurants and cafes close by too. Nothing to complain.

TomTom Suites is that wonderful combination of a hideaway in a convenient location. Visiting in November 2020, during the partial lockdown due to COVID, we felt as safe at TomTom Suites we would have in our own neighborhood. COVID safety regulations were obviously a high concern and were followed gracefully without disruption or discomfort. The Classic Suite we had was beautiful and spacious – from a desk suitable for work to the bathtub for luxurious relaxation. The staff - Nurol, Atilla and Serhad - were wonderful to talk with and amazingly helpful in every aspect: In addition to helping us with directions around Istanbul or printing our airline information, they also helped us make plans such as a visit to a Hammam and a special event at local religious institution. The breakfast was a daily pleasure – bountiful and fresh. And we truly enjoyed the company of our restaurant host, Fuat. While we were travelling at an unusual and challenging time, our stay at TomTom Suites was worry free and provided both an exciting launchpad for our daily activities and a wonderful place to come back to. We would happily stay there again – and hopefully will!
