We stayed three nights at the Venera, in order to see the city, on our way back from Antalya. The taxi driver from the airport took a long time to find the hotel. I recommend that future guests take the map or hotel phone number along with them.
The hotel is situated in the center of the textile wholesalers, and a lot of shopping can be made within a city block. Public transport is available nearby, making it easy to travel anywhere. The Sultan Ahmet mosque is within walking distance.
The bar on the terrace of the 9th floor offers a superb view of the Bosporus, and we spent the three evenings there, enjoying drinks and the view!
The rooms are on the small side, but comfortable, and typical of a 4 star hotel in the center. Noise could be heard from the adjacent rooms, but muffled. The wireless internet worked very well everywhere in the hotel. The breakfast was ordinary, and the omelets were good.
I recommend this hotel for textile shoppers in Istanbul especially, although access to tourism sites is easy from there.
We did not use the pool or spa facilities, and had dinner only once at the terrace bar.
