Nice place, very Nice people. Breakfests were also tasty what is not so common in Turkei. Closed to city center and tram. One problem that cause dificulties is wifi. Connection is not stable but you don't have to pay for it additionally.

I stayed at the Time Hotel twice. The first time I had a reservation well in advance and the price was half that of the second time, which was a surprise stop in Istanbul just a couple of weeks later. The staff are super friendly and accommodating and the rooms are large, though a little dated. I ordered room service... More

I stayed at this hotel for almost a week and found everyone very nice and kind. Breakfast is not great but it's ok and the rooms were clean and good enough. For the price I couldn't have made better. It's walking distance to many restaurants and public transportation.

The price was good and location close to attractions. Service could be better. Don't expect much. Some problems with the AC. I decided to ask for an additional digital key and leave the AC on all day.

We stayed here in march 2014. Good location , good brekfast , nice polite bellmen , clean rooms , free wi-fi. Some rooms have no windows - that's pretty freaky for some people. If you get it for a good price (as we did) you can't ask for more.

The yield between price and quality is satisfactory. The Breakfast is very hearty and tasty, it is buffet excep Sunday. The staff is friendly. Location is good for those who are here on business and is 15 minutes walk from the historic center. It is situated right next to the tram line.

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighborhood Profile
Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighborhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.

“Ask for rooms at the back of the hotel. You might not get a view but you'll get plenty of rest after a full day of sightseeing.”

“Ask for a room at the back of the hotel and on a high floor. The front faces onto a very busy street and a mosque so be prepared to wake early. The back of the hotel is far quieter!”
