I stayed at the Best Western in early November 2016 and had a great stay. The hotel is superbly located within 2 minutes walk of the Grand Bazaar. Topkapi Palace and the Blue Mosque are in easy walking distance but also easilyaccessible from the (cheap) tram/metro. The views from the restaurant gym terrace are amazing - definitely worth a trip...

Breakfast is quite rich in quantity but croissants and cereals are not really tasty nor look appetising. The reception staff are brilliant! We have been given a room that faced a wall...
