Reviewed many hotels in Sultanahmet area in Istanbul and came across this hotel...it had great reviews on TripAdvisor so I decided to give it a try...booked through their secure website and received early booking discount offer, in addition to airport pick up since I was staying 3 nights. We booked a family room since I have 2 kids (10 & 6 years old). Thought the room will be tiny but was pleasantly surprised that it was big enough to accommodate yhe 4 of us with our 4 bags. It has 2 single beds and a full size bed. There is a safe in the room and it had a terrace. There is a water kettle with coffee and tea and water bottles were provided. 2 pairs of slippers were provided. The hotel has free WiFi in the room which was a welcome plus. The breakfast is served in the roof terrace which has a terrace that has a great view of both Blue mosque and Aya Sophia. The breakfast has large selection of cheeses, boiled eggs, sausages, cereal etc...the hotel location is great...close to tram stop, walking distance to Grand Bazaar, Blue mosque, Aya Sophia, Topkapi palace...the only negative I experienced was having a torn blanket , but was quickly replaced by a call to the reception. The hotel is very clean and people there are very friendly. ..hotel manager amr. Shahin was very good in replying to emails promptly. ..I definitely would recommend this hotel. ..

The hotel restaurant terrace views of the blue mosque were very dramatic. Breakfast was typical turkish fare. Rooms were small but sufficient with good views and air conditioning. We were so happy to be in such a great location in walking distance to everything!

I booked this on the strength of the reviews I'd read - cost and location were the main factors.
The guys at reception were very helpful. Also handy was the free airport pick up. My only minor gripe was that it was a little noisy - not so much from what's going on outside in the road - but from other guests on my floor or stairs and the guy going around all the rooms shouting 'minibar'. Not a problem if you;re up early, but no great if you're trying to have lie in. Overall though it was very good in terms of location and value for money.

I found this hotel in Tripadvisor and my experience was great. Located in a quiet street and close to the main attractions of Sultanahmet. The breakfast was very good and the view was like a postcard. All the people working there were very nice. Wi fi never stopped working ok and it was clean.

We were at the hotel Nena few weeks ago. I hired the web page of the hotel. Everything in it is indicated as shown.
A hotel with excellent value for money. We felt at home. The kindness of the receptionists who do their best to satisfy the guest. The cleaning of the rooms and the hotel in general. All personnel serving in desayno, cordiality and warmth that are not always found. And of course a varied and excellent quality breakfast served on the terrace with beautiful city views.

Location: within walking distance of the Blue Mosque and all the attractions of the city. You can walk to most places of interest.

We had a problem with the city tour we hired through the hotel and the next day we returned the amount. This shows that guest service is priority. They are in every detail. The day of our departure we were treated turkish sweets, a treat!

What more can we say if we were satisfied and opportunity to return to this wonderful city, stay at the Hotel Nena.

Special thanks to all members of the Hotel.

I was on a business trip and had a weekend to enjoy some personal time. This hotel is great. Within walking distance to several attractions and is a nice, cozy hotel.
The walls were a bit thin as I stayed there during the world cup and could hear others cheering.
The staff is great and went above and beyond to help wherever possible.
I had to leave to catch a flight on my last morning there, but I regret that I didnt have more time to spend at the breakfast buffet. The buffet had an incredibly wide selection, and even as a vegetarian, I felt that there were plenty of things to eat. I also could not believe the breathtaking view from the balcony area of the restaurant!
The breakfast was a great value to add to this hotel.

Ps, wifi was also great at this hotel. In many hotels, you have to deal with an annoying sign in every time you want to use the internet. In this hotel it was just like being at home. I found the network name, entered a password once and was off!
