Reviewed September 27, 2013

Stayed for 3 nights in September 2013, great location as only short distance from main attractions. Rooms were fantastic with all amenities, breakfast was out of this world so many choices.
Staff were very friendly and helpful and overall wonderful experience. Local restaurants must be visited for their authentic meals and hospitality.
What can I say Istanbul should be on every-one bucket list.

Room Tip: Am sure all rooms are excellent.

I stayed at Innova in June. It is perfectly located within walking distance of most main sightseeing.

Rooms: The hotel is very modern and updated. The room we stayed in was spacious, though a bit noisy because it was on the first floor with the street right outside. Make sure you check over the list they leave to make sure you know what snack items are complimentary and what is for pay.

Staff: The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, nearly everyone speaking English (My Turkish was limited to thank-you & please, but the staff members who didn't speak English were always quick to find another member who could help). As an example of their accommodating attitude, we had to leave very early on our check-out day and asked the staff the night before if it would be possible for them to set aside some breakfast pastries for us (since it would be before breakfast hours when we had to leave). Instead they made us the full breakfast so we could take whatever we wanted to eat!

Breakfast and restaurant: Breakfast had a huge variety of cold and warm foods. Omelets were extra, though. The juice was...meh. But everything else was always satisfactory. The hotel restaurant was pricey, but the food was good. If you let them know you want to eat on the roof top, they will bring you a menu and you can eat while having an amazing view of the city and the Bosphorus.

Other notes: When I was in Istanbul, the protests were still going on. But they did not effect us at all where we stayed, though it was on the minds of many Turks we met. We were sure to be sensitive to that--this is their country and they care about it. One thing we noted was how important the public parks are there--it gets very hot and parks provide relief and serenity.

Two single ladies, coming to Istanbul for 2 nights after a Mediterranean cruise. Perfect location, very helpful front desk staff, delightful morning buffet, and a lovely outdoor respite on the roof.
Very modern hotel in the old Sultanhamet region. Great kepab restaurant down the street, but best of all, the front desk made dinner arrangments for us, and sent a bellman with us to make sure we got there. He stayed with us, but not at the table, until we returned safely. A big plus for women traveling alone in a country with a totally foreign language. I'd go back in a minute. Advise to the individual who didn't understand the a/c, keep it low while you're in the room. it turns off when you go out or it reaches the temperature. who needs a swimming pool when they have a Turkish bath?

Room Tip: only family rooms dosn;t have the sea and the city view.

Ideal location, clean rooms, great breakfast and wonderful people. My only problem was the A/C kept turning off for no reason in the middle of the night. When I called the front desk, they automatically assumed I opened the balcony door as if I sleepwalk and have a sudden urge to go to the balcony at 3 AM! However, they were able to turn it back on from the front desk with a pledge to have " the technical team" fix it. Same problem next night as well. Lack of sleep is not a good thing for a weary traveler. I could not speak to the manager despite repeated requests. Other than that, they did everything right and the full breakfast is of outstanding quality. I will definitely recommend and stay there again

I just came back from Turkey two days ago and I really loved our stay at this hotel. Nice hotel, clean and spacious, great location, friendly staff! Food was excellent, housekeeping too! Thanks a lot, everyone there! I really loved it! Would definitely come back! If it lacks something, it would be just a big lobby! Nevertheless, that's fine!
