I would strongly suggest this perfect hotel for anyone who's willing to travel to Istanbul. Absolutely clean rooms, top-notch service quality on top of amazing location for sightseeing make this hotel such a great value, especially for tourists.

The terrace is extremely charming with a beautiful view. And not to mention how friendly all the staff were; I had one of the best trips of my life thanks to Nena. The level of how clean the hotel was gets 10/10 from me and I believe it's definitely at the same standard as the top hotels across Europe.

I wanted to share my thoughts about Nena, so others like me who would like to experience one of the world's most magical cities at its best, can guarantee a perfect trip with any slightest disappointment.

Charming boutique hotel in the center of Old Istanbul. Me and my family did very much enjoyed staying at the Hotel Nena. Very helpful staff, great room, tidy and confortable. Breath taking view from the rooftop restaurant. Thank you to all for making our honeymoon a very special one... We will definitely be back...

Location is perfect for visiting the most important sights of Istanbul. What i liked most was the very helpful and friendly staff.
The interior of the rooms is also very nice.
One of the best price-value relation that i know in Istanbul.

Fantastic hotel tucked just off the main road and around the corner from the Sultanahmet Tramstop. The tram takes you everywhere you could want to go so it's great to be closeby. Sultanahmet is on a hill with the tram at the top so if you pick a hotel further down the hill towards Kennedy Caddesi you have to huff and puff up it to get to the tram.

Airport collection went smoothly - the driver took me to exchange money and to buy a Turkish SIM Card before we left. Warm welcome at the hotel by english speaking staff who gave me tea and sat me down for a brief overview of Istanbul, things to do, transport etc. They answered many questions and assisted with directions etc. They held my luggage on the last day - it was safely locked away and each bag was given a security tag which I had to produce to retrieve them.

Hotel rooms were small but clean with lovely touches - I used my shoe polisher the whole two week trip I was there. Windows are double glazed so you don't hear the call to prayer in the morning :-) Good breakfast with lovely view of the Blue Mosque. Change Exchange over the road - 0% Comission. Plenty of fancy or cheap options nearby for food, or some turkish coffee and baklava on the way home late at night.

One thing - the mattresses are a bit hard but I was so tired after a busy day I didn't let it get to me.

It was a short walk to all of the major sites. The room was clean. The staff was friendly and spoke English.

the hotel is nice and renovated from not long, breakfast was great, staff polite, rooms not very big but comfortable.
I'd recommend to choose the hotel to everybody visiting the town especially for tourism, it's located really close to the main attractions in a quiet and safe area !
i'd come back with pleasure!
