Exellent place, very friendly stuff. The restaurant on the roof very cozy and has incredible views on the blue mosque and bosphor, can spend hours watching it. Special thank to chif Erhan and waiter Ali:) food and service was top.

We were in hotel nena from 23 to 30 November 2012.
The hotel is perfectly located, about 5 minutes from all mosquees, at feet. Everything is nearby!
The reception was brilliant! They welcome you lovely and are very kind!
When i will go back to Istanbul, i certainly will go to hotel nena!
Thank you one more time!

We stayed here for 4 nights and love it! The room is clean and nice. Breakfast was great with awesome view of the Blue mosque. The staff are great - always asking of your well being and every ready to help. Location was very good, a few minutes walk from all the famous sights. Near enough and yet quiet. Will stay here again if I visit Istanbul!

I can't say enough about how enjoyable my stay was. This was my first trip to Turkey and a bit overwhelmed at lodging choices in Istanbul. I'm glad I read reviews and chose Nena Hotel.

Pros -
Location...close to the major tourist attractions...all in walking distance
Price...you can't be it.
Free breakfast with an amazing view
Free Wifi
Amazing customer service

Cons -
I struggle to even find one...about the only one, and it's minor is the lack of English TV stations. You can only watch so much BBC News and CNN...not everyone wants to watch only news programming.

Tip - request and outside viewing room and pay for the hotel transportation to/from the airport. Fast, convenience and reasonably priced compared to taxis.

Great stay...will definitely stay again!

We stayed here two nights between 20-22/12, we got nice clean rooms not big but enough. Good breakfast with marvelous views. We also got help booking airport transfer, even a shuttle later when we would not stay at the hotel. They emailed and double-checked the day before. Very decent.
Do not hesitate to book

A small hotel but very comfortable. The service is impeccable and fabulous. The view from the balcony gives straight to the Blue Mosque, and the view of the Bosphorus morning with the mosque is indescribable. The breakfast also had many options. I highly recommend it!
