Tunel Residence
Ranked #76 of 1,235 Specialty Lodging in Istanbul
Reviewed August 27, 2011

Spent our last night in Istanbul before heading home after 3 weeks in Turkey. Booked a standard room but we were upgraded to a junior suite which was spacious, well designed and with lovely amenities. Check in was warm and efficient and service at every contact was cordial and helpful. Spa and pool in basement levels but we did not have time to use them. Amazing view of Galata tower and great location. Should have stayed there for the 5 days we had spent earlier in Istanbul.

This is a great hotel. Rooms are spotless, beautifully decorated and amenities are top class. Aya rooms are very small, but well worth staying here if you think it won't bother you. It bothered us less than we anticipated. Gym had all you need but some confusion about opening hours at the start of our stay was frustrating. Location for isktel cadessi and beyoglu is excellent, but as with all of Istanbul, the location is not for the unfit if you plan to walk. Overall great.

Stayed at tunel from the end of June to the begining of July 2011. It is def. not a 5 star hotel . Rooms were extremely small and dangerous to walk in the room . I hurt my ankle several times due to lack of space around the bed. No DVD player ,TV was small and not 40 inches as mentioned in the add. No breakfast either.
I had to ask to clean the room twice one day to get my room clean .
Staff was however friendly but lack experience.

Tunel Residence is a nice property and we had a great suite however, due to the lack of customer service, the hotel doesn't stack up against the cost.

Just asking for any type of assistance we were met with astounding lack of customer service. We were spoken to so badly when asking for help from the front desk reception.The hotel industry is all about customer service. Well Tunel Residence doesn't realise this. They also don't realise that their staff need appropriate level of english to communicate with their customers which felt to me like were only tourists.

We decided to have breakfast included in the room rate however, the value was disgusting. It was not a buffet service, they provide an al carte menu which is extremely basic and does not relate in any way to what you've paid. Recommend buying breakfast on the run.

Located right at the IST M2 Sishane Metro station, Tunel Residence is a clean, stylish, apart hotel. Since it is new and I am staying at an offseason period, I was able to get a good rate ~$150.

My relocation agent recommended this place for the location and stylish living situation however this place is by no means set up for a biz traveller or an expat in transition. Patchy wireless coverage and ethernet lines for internet access at the study room in my unit. Bedroom has good internet coverage but has no study desk. Pretty uncomfortable if you are planning to pull 80 hour weeks.

There is a kitchen but the cleaning staff doesn't take care of dishes, there is a restaurant but can't have dinner without reservation, the smoke alarm goes off when the downstairs restaurant has problem with the ventilation system, quite noisy in the middle of the night when other guests come in and go.

1. Location is just great, near Taxim but not into the panic, steps away from Metro & Tunel, short walk from Spice market
2. clean rooms but I have to say that the day prior of our arrival they didnt clean our room and we asked 2 times to replace the towels
3. the restaurant at the lobby is GREAT especially for late breakfast : )
4. the check in took as at least 10 minutes for no reason
