“East meets West”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

After reading many reviews and researching hotels in Istanbul for our vacation last June we chose the Maywood because of the great reviews. The reviews were right, the price was right, the location was right, and the hotel was right for us and all of our friends. We had room 304 and it was quiet and large. Our friends had a balcony in front and loved it. The breakfast was beautiful and the staff was friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel.

This is a hotel where the staff is especially attentive and it is located in a nice commercial area where prices are better than those you find in the grand bazaar .
It is also located near Sultanahmet the most important square in town.it is also close to thousands of wonderful restaurants.The room is a bit too small as well as the bed. Breakfast is very good. In the end of the day it is a good choice.

Second visit to the hotel. Superb location for the Old City, and perfect for access to tram,train and ferries. Staff friendly and rooms excellent. Close to restaurants. Highly recommended .Breakfast should satisfy all tastes . Staff do take notice of any suggestions to improve their service. Don't be shy.

I have stayed a few times in the Maywood Hotel and as usual it is a great place to stay. Rooms are well furnished and have good aircon units, especially welcome in the heat of July. Extensive turkish buffet breakfast and it is all fresh and delicious. The staff members are very peasant and helpful. This hotel is very good for all the local attractions of the old town in Sultanamet, also a few minutes walk away is Gulhane park.

We stayed at Maywood Hotel for 7 nights. The room was always tidy and clean and spacious. The breakfast was satisfying and the staff was kind and helpful. It is located really close to Agia Sofia and TopKapi palace and the street was quiet. It was really a very pleasant and relaxing stay.

The Maywood is in an excellent location. The rooms are very well appointed and spottlesly clean and the breakfasts were absolutely fantastic.All he staff are extremely helpful. When we arrived Mehmet Ersin gave us refreshments and showed us the city map on where to go and where we were situated. The train ferry, bus and trams are in easy waling distance.They will arrange transfers from the airport and visa versa if you are only staying a short time. I highly recommend this hotel.

We were very happy with the accomodations, service and location. We made our booking through Booking.com, but we could have saved 10% by booking directly with the hotel website and paying cash. They accept Euros, US Dollars and Turkish lira. Courtesy transportation from the airport was given with a 3 night stay. This service must be reserved before arrival (easily done on their website). We arrived amost an hour late, around midnight and this was no problem. Turkish Customs was minimal but I recommend buying your Visa online ($20.) and printing it to avoid possible lines at the airport.
The location of the hotel made it easy to walk to everything we wanted to see. Breakfast had a nice variety that even changed a little each day and there were restaurants directly across the street for other meals. The Turkish tea was very good. There was a small fridge in the room and bottled water and snacks available, but we brought in our own. Tap water in room was non-potable. Room was very comfortable with windows that opened for fresh air. I had been told to request a room with a balcony, but these overlooked the street. Our room overlooked a small interior space, not lovely but quieter, I think.
Free Internet in the room worked well. Staff was very helpful and we were given a box of Turkish Delight on our departure. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
