It was our first visit to Istanbul so I have nothing to compare this hotel to, but the impression was really good. The location is ok, not far from the city center just in front of a very beautiful mosque. The reception in the hotel is friendly and helpful. And what I liked the most are the fantastic traditional interiors... More

I was fortunate to stay at the Grand Durmaz Hotel in June 2015. It is in the heart of Istanbul near all the major tourist attractions i.e. Grand Bazaar; Blue Mosque; Hagia Sophia. The tram stop and metro is 20m from the hotel entrance. The hotel is tastefully decorated. The rooms very comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. Very good value... More

The hotel is quite nice bur Blbad breakfast (will never forget that bad chemical fruit juice), noisy room on deluxe category, unfriendly staff, got some money stolen by cleanning services when went for breakfast. You can definitely get better for the same money in Istanbul.

It was about 5-7 mins walk from Aksaray metro station. It took us 30 minutes from the airport with the metro and the location was convenient. We booked this hotel because of its location. It was 30 minutes walk to Sultanahment and 30 minutes walk to Taksim. We never took a Tram or Metro during our stay. We could walk... More

The locations relatively good, bad reception and service. Buffet breakfast is a duplicate of each day there is no change.Site is not safe after midnight, many hawkers, no parking. Asked distinctive processing room to the memory of the marriage, but is not anything processing and reception does not have any information about this request did not provide any kindness

Great service! Lovely room, good food. Really enjoyed the stay. It's right near the tram and train station which is perfect for getting to the airport and the centre of the old city. The budgies were lovely. Didn't get to have a Turkish bath, but that also looked like it would be great.

On arrival the Reception was fairly busy but we were quickly checked in by friendly staff. We were allocated two rooms on the first floor at the back of the hotel. The rooms... More

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.
