We stayed at this hotel for two nights, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The service was friendly and professional. We had booked a deluxe room, since we wanted a room with a balcony that had the super view of the Blue Mosque, along with views of the Aya Sophia, the Golden Horn and the Bosporous. The view was fantastic and the room was large and clean - with a large balcony. Breakfast was wonderful - except for the orange juice which was watery. There was an extra charge for fresh-squeezed OJ. Our only disappointment was that we had requested Room 402 specifically and had that request confirmed by email a few days before our stay – but we were given a different room.
The room came with a complimentary airport transfer, which was very convenient. Their driver was waiting for us with our name in large letters on a sign. He drove a very comfortable van. We were also given a coupon for 50% off of dinner at their restaurant. We ate there our first evening, and found that the 50% off was not a good deal, since their menu prices were denominated in euros, rather than in Turkish lira. Even with 50% off, our meal cost more than we paid for dinner at other nice restaurants in Istanbul, The meal was very tasty, though.
Also, beware of Dynamic Currency Conversion. When we paid our bill, they first converted the euros to Turkish lira, and then to US dollars. When I complained, they finally agreed to just convert the euros to US dollars.
We would definitely stay at Hotel Nena again, and highly recommend this hotel. We wouldn’t eat dinner there, though.
