Nice place, it's very close to public transport and metro. It's very clean, calm. I will chose this place even next time. The resporants are in two steps. And it's an Asian part, so there are not much tourists and noice like in European.
The hotel and the rooms are very clean and reasonable. The cost is stay was not very high. Breakfast at the Top floor was also good. You can have an excellent view of the city from the top. I asked for the dinner at room and I must say that was one of my best dinner test-wise.
From the outside and at first glance Bostanci Hotel seems like a simple ordinary hotel , however a closer look proves otherwise . The hotel's location is probably its best asset along with the magnificent view from the hotel's restaurant which is pretty much on the top floor of the hotel. The amazing and delicious breakfast along with the view gives this hotel real value in my opinion , its these two factors that I enjoyed most about this Hotel , the rooms were O.K , nothing special . Bottom Line , Bostanci Hotel is a place that I would come back to stay at . The only problem I encountered at the Hotel was a rude night shift front desk employee who completely humiliated a female friend of mine who was just coming up to my room for a few minutes as I was still not ready one night for dinner. The front desk employee thought she was an escort dressed up coming to my room and told her her client had to pay for double occupancy before she could go into the elevator , while in reality , it was a friend and we were going out to dinner and I wasn't ready and she had her own apartment a few blocks away . I flipped on the guy , talked to management and they apologized to the female who's father happens to be a prominent lawyer in Istanbul . That fiasco aside , it was a great trip and as others pointed out the area is packed with great cafes , bars and tons of places to eat , especially when it comes to seafood . Do NOT leave Bostanci without trying the "Mediya" , Clams or Oysters stuffed with rice , it was AMAZING , oh and the octopus salads , WOW ! Believe it or not I only ate Kebab once in Turkey , the Seafood was too good to stop , had to pass on the Kebab every single night .…
Bostanci Hotel is a big Hotel (11 floors), rooms are on average 25mq and emplyees are always nice and helpfull. But i had a dinner at the hotel restaurant and the service was really slow 2 hours to eat a couple of things. I don't think it's a bad hotel, but i think it could be better improving breakfast with sweet food (brioches and pastry) since it was mainly savory and the staff at the hotel restaurant.
Hotel was reasonably priced with breakfast included. Room was fine. Staff at times seem bored and could be a bit more friendlier. Ate out most nights in Baghdad caddesi which is about a 15 min walk away. Bostanci is a fairly quiet area. If you want a more livelier area try Kadacoy.
