“Well worth staying here.”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Have just returned from a 5 night stay, From checking in to checking out all the staff were attentive and extremely helpful. The views from roof terrace and breakfast area were superb. Only down side we stayed on the 5th floor which was directly below the breakfast/function room, this is used for other functions and the sound of music was going on until 11.30pm.

Room Tip: Be aware that rooms on the 5th floor could be affected by functions on the 6th floor in evenings.

Had a great stay here while at a conference. Comfortable, clean and good service. An excellent location for trams and all the main sites. Even better, walk down the road to fabullous authentic restaurants away from the tourists and eventually to the sea and an array of fish eateries. Wonderful. The roof terrace of the hotel was a fantastic bonus for late night drinks while looking at a spectacular view over the Mamara sea and Blue Mosque. Only minor quibble--- the soundproofing in the bathroom of the rooms. It was possible to hear most of why went on in next doors bathroom. Not a major problem but might be an issue for some. Really good hotel overall.

I always request the same room every time I come to Istanbul. There is always fresh fruit and Turkish delights waiting for me. The large balcony overlooks the ocean and it is very centrally located close to the grand bazaar.

Room Tip: Ask for the suite on the 4th floor.

Stopped 2 nights while visiting Istanbul.
Could not fault it. However we were upgraded due to our Expedia status, so may be slightly biased as we got a suite!
Bowl of fruit and chocolates in the room.
We asked for an alcoholic drink on the roof bar, not realising it was Ramadan, and the bar was closed, as there was a big Muslim party there
However waiter said, " No problem Sir, I will get it from the ground floor bar, and you can drink it on the Terrace".
They got us a big people carrier at a very reasonable rate to take us to our cruise liner.

For a birthday celebration, my wife suggested a four-day city break to Istanbul, a city we had never before visited and where East meets West. We found Istanbul to be vibrant, colourful and exciting, a mixture of the old and new. The President Hotel was situated in the old part of the town and close to all amenities such as shopping, restaurants, historical sites, museums, Grand Bazaar, palaces and the Blue Mosque. A nearby tramway system is cheap and easy to use with popular hop-on buses available for longer sight-seeing journeys. This very appealing hotel provided international cuisine, good food and a roof terrace restaurant with excellent views. our room was spotlessly clean and the hotel staff superb in every way. We enjoyed the boat trip to the Bosphorus with dinner and musical entertainment. A wonderful experience and holiday.

Room Tip: Aim for a corner suite preferably on the south side.

We spent on night here before joining a cruise ship. The hotel was very comfortable - good choice of food at reasonable prices with a bar which had wonderful views over night floodlit Istanbul. The Grand Bazaar and the two main mosques are within easy reach on foot.

My wife and I stayed here for 9 nights and were very impressed with all aspects of the hotel:-
- Location absolutely superb , minutes from excellent restaurants,shopping, the tram, Grand Bazaar etc. Main historical sites, turkish baths etc 10-15 minutes walk away,or less by tram.
-On time free door to door airport transfers each way, plus other extras such as free spa usage
-Friendly, efficient and very helpful staff at front desk and throughout the hotel, who were a pleasure to deal with and whose very warm welcome to the hotel on arrival set the tone for our entire stay. Bookings for tours and events with pick up from the hotel were organised very well.
-Asked for a room with a sea view in advance of arrival, and got one (no extra cost)
-Room was comfortable, with excellent air conditioning which responded to the controls (not to be taken for granted in my experience,often too hot or cold or functioning poorly in many hotels),king sized bed nice toiletries, bath and shower, robes and slippers, tea/coffee making facilities, safe, multi-channel satellite TV etc. Free internet in room was superb , functioning properly at all times with a strong signal
-Excellent hot and cold breakfast selection (with freshly squeezed juice available);restaurant on rooftop very good- superb views over Istanbul and the Bosphorus
- All facilities and room spotlessly clean , including pool and spa areas. Nice to have a drink on the sundeck after a dip in the pool---again ---view is spectacular .
- Shop on ground floor run by a very friendly man ---good prices too for those last minute gifts to bring home!

Cannot find any fault with the hotel. We got excellent service and value for money and I would definitely stay here again. Well done!!

Room Tip: Rooms on hotel entrance side (Caddessi ) very quiet Ask for sea view 4th or 5th floor
