Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 16, 2014

The hotel is situated near key tourist attractions of Istanbul including the Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Basilica Cistern. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to meet your requests. The rooms are clean and comfortable. There is a gym upstairs, a pool and a terrace restaurant that has fantastic views of Istanbul.

The hotel is not very sound proof so if you are facing the street, it is possible to be woken up early due to early trading, car alarms, etc. Also in one of the meeting rooms we could hear the staff washing the dishes and putting them away. Also the wifi can often lose connection.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't face the street

Keep up the good ambience and friendly staff.
The staff appear to be well trained and co-ordinate issues well. The may not be very perfect in speaking English but they sure enough go out of their way to ensure customer satisfaction.
The hotel is high end/ high net worth, but it is good to try and embrace all Nationalities.Try to market to African business men and Women who visit Turkey every week by offering them beginners packages.
This is my second stay here in less than one year but I hardly see visitors of African origin. It is important to keep marketing your good quality services all over the world and probably give fairer rates during your off peak season. This will go along way to encourage new customers both business men and women who or holiday makers to sample out The president hotel The president Hotel is at such an advantageous location. The view point from the Seventh floor and even the sixth flow is awesome and out of this world. You actually enjoy viewing the Marmara and sun going down. The view of the old Historical town can also be perfectly viewed from this point.

The place is very conveniently located in rhe old city and is very close to the tram station and the Grand Bazar. We were comfortable and didnt feel any hassles one usually does while staying in a new hotel in a strange city. Only thing odd that the staff, though very polite and professional, were not the smiling type. Also if you ask them for directions to any attraction they will usually try you to take the expensive tours that the hotel advertises.

Other than that I am very satisfied with our stay there.

This hotel is a nice hotel, provided a relaxing stay after a long flight. The room is cosy and clean. The breakfast is more than enough for a dieter like me. Every morning, i had a very cute companion while having breakfast, a seagull outside the window. The staff are very accomodating. The souvenir shop sells resonable and cheap items. I had a great stay in this hotel.

This proterty is in an ideal location and every, every site worth seeing in this incredible city is in walking distance. The rooms are modern, good size, clean, great beds and bath. The AC is seasonal it seems and we needed to open the window for coolness. Eatery is very good and the buffet breakfast excellent. The Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, St. Sohpia, Topaki and all the historic sites are just a 10-20 minute walk away. The hotel shop has some of the BEST prices for your shopping too. This hotel is ideal for all adventures in Istanbul.

Room Tip: Price the hotel shop first for your treasures - great prices as they know the competition.

The stay at the Presidential was delightful. The staff was very helpful, professional and polite when information was needed. The hotel is perfectly situated easily to walk to many of the major sites--the Grand Bazaar, Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and the Istanbul Archaeological Museum as well as others.

The room was very clean and the food excellent. I recommend the hotel highly.
