We had an excellent stay at the Best Western Premier Regency Suites! The hotel is very nice, clean, and located in a great spot, close to all the tourist attractions. The customer service in the hotel was extremely good. In particular, Mursel Kurtlu (daytime concierge) was very knowledgeable, helpful, and accommodating to our needs/requests. He also arranged a private city guide within 30 min of our asking him! The hotel also provided a very good breakfast with a lot of food variety (included in hotel fee) and great waitstaff (Natali was especially good!). We highly recommend this hotel for your stay.

Good hotel, very clean, friendly staff and excellent location. The hotel is located in a busy pedestrian road full of restaurants and cafes. Yet the room was extremely quiet (my room was on the first floor facing the street). AC worked well. Breakfast had a good selection and it was included in the price. WIFI was also included. Definitely a good choice if you are planning to explore all the historical sites. Bathroom could use some minor upgrades and have the mold removed for the corner of the bathtub. Overall I recommend the hotel!

I looked around a lot for a place for my wife and me and 3 kids. We chose this and we weren't disappointed. Great location and great place. It was a bit expensive and so I was concerned that I may not get value for money. But in the end I was very happy with out choice. We were looked after very well. The street itself is good as well since there are lots of restaurants around and it also right next to the places of interest.

My friend and I stayed here for two nights before our cruise departing from Istanbul. The room was nice and our twin bed room didn't feel crowded. The separate sitting room area provided added space. The location was superb - walking distance to Topkapi Palace and Haiga Sophia and Blue Mosque.

Room Tip: Print a map for the taxi driver, especially if you arrive in the dark.

We have been to Istanbul a few times and always stay here.
The rooms are spacious, clean and above average. The staff are more than obliging and genuinely care about their patrons.
It is an excellent location and within walking distance of many attractions.

As previously advised I would be returning to BEST WESTERN Premier Regency Suites & Spa by the end of August. I wasn't disappointed. The quality of service and the cleanliness and friendliness shown by the staff is beyond reproach. Traveling with us we had a friend who usually stays in 5 star international hotels right round the world. He travels often but this time we thought we would introduce him to our "little gem" in Istanbul. This hotel continues its homely attitude certainly worth of experiencing if you haven't been a guest so far. Thanks again to the management and staff for a memorable conclusion to our holiday.

Room Tip: I would suggest a room at the back of the building. Not overlooking the main street of Sultanahmet w...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Welcome to the Istanbul Art De Vivre!Located at he heart of Istanbul between Europe and Asia, the GLK PREMIER Regency Suites Hotel & Spa commands an extensive view of a relatively small area that has nonetheless witnessed 2000 years of the history of some of the richest civilisations humanity has ever known: Ancient, Greece the Roman Empire, The Byzantine Empire and the Ottoman Empire!It is only a few steps from the Blue Mosque, Saint Sophie and Topkapi Palace. The hotel, a lovely mansion built in 1905, is a listed historic monument today. The elegance of its origin is still amply visible in the neo-classical moulding on the facade and the solid wood or beige Bursa granite floors. Numerous details and features in the house bear witness to a world of such sophistication that its sultans are portrayed holding a flower.The hotel's rugs, like the motifs on the walls, seem to have stepped straight out of the Topkapi Palace.As century old traditions require, the hammam of the GLK PREMIER Regency Suites Hotel & Spa features a suite of three rooms with different functions: hot room, warm room and cool room.The hotel is equally dedicated to maintaining state-of-the-art international hotel standards, which rather than detracting from its historic past, leave its guests free to savour and appreciate this heritage.In this way, the GLK PREMIER Regency Suites Hotel & Spa distils the quintessence of Istanbul's distinctive lifestyle, particularly from its 16 suites:the dome of the Blue Mosque surrounded by six slender minarets, the monotonous chant of the muezzin, the enchanting hush that reigns over the city in the morning, the sweetly scented Topkapi Park, the view of Bosphorous or the Marmara Sea on which the Prince's Islands seem almost to float or its mouth-watering exotic cuisine, etc. The justly dubbed 'Golden Horn', which the hotel overlooks, sumptuously sums up the inexhaustible wealth of this matchless location. ... more   less
