Stayed here twice in August as part of a Cosmos tour. The first room was very small but clean. Walls seemed thin with a lot of noise being heard from adjoining rooms. The air conditioning was just adequate but noisy. The second visit was a bit of an improvement with a larger room and better air conditioning. There is a great view from the 8th floor restaurant that overlooks the golden horn however the restaurant food was not wonderful. Breakfast was ok but not a huge variety. We found, with the exception of one gentleman, the staff on the front desk to be less than helpful when we inquired about postage, directions etc
Great location and close to some good restaurants, bus and taxi. Care needs to be taken with taxi fare charges as this can vary greatly ...... Ask for price and be prepared to haggle down. We found that prices varied within our group by huge amounts so take care. Ask for a room with water view and higher floors to avoid traffic noise.

Stayed August 2012, traveled as a couple

it's a very good Hotel. Rooms are very clean and everything is in the good quality. The bus stop is right in front of the hotel. It is easy to get to the main streets. The streets behind the hotel are very beautiful, especially at night, the bars and restaurants are very interesting and beautiful. The big problem was the thin walls and the room next door and speaking voices were heard as well. Reception staff (especially the lady in the reception ) were impolite...But overally it was a good hotel.

Location is everything to me. This hotel doesn't have a great view or anything like that but just up behind the hotel and you will find everything. Tons of restaurants, shopping, etc. in the evening the street is lite with blue and white light for a mile and shops are open until late in the evening. This area is just a short walk up behind the hotel and yet the hotel is quite. The pool was very nice and much appreciated. Lobby was pleasant as we're the rooms.

We stayed at the Grand Halich for 2 weeks, businesss and pleasure. Very nice hotel, buffet breakfast, restaurant with good food on top floor with Turkish show on weekends. The hotel is reasonably priced and well situated on the European side (near Galata Tower and Istiklal cad.). Easy to get busses, share taxis and metro to anywhere. The view is worth a million $. The venue for the educators convention I attended was at the Ramada Plaza and was 3x the price of the Grand Halich. Even if the price had been the same I would have chosen the Grand Halich for location and view. You can pay more, but you can't do better. By the way, none of the photos I have included are touched up, the colors are exactly as we saw them.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

We joined a Cosmos tour and stayed at this hotel both at the beginning and end of the coach tour.

On our first night we were allocated a high room at the front of the hotel and this gave us a tremendous view over the Golden Horn both in daylight and at night. Our friends were on the 1st floor and they were unhappy with the traffic noise but we hardly noticed it being higher up.

On our return trip we were allocated a room at the back of the hotel with a view of a side alley but we hardly spent any time in the room as we were out exploring the area during the daytime and a hotel room as long as it offers reasonable comforts is all we expect when not paying for the better quality accommodation.

We found the breakfasts to be very good with a large variety of food - the only problem being if you put your knife down on the plate the waiters assumed you had finished with that dish and whipped it away!

Reception staff were very helpful although they were serious faced most of the time.

We used the hotel restaurant once and the waiters were extremely polite and helpful and even produced a large piece of tinfoil to wrap the remains of a very large sandwich rather than have it put in a serviette.

The best thing about this hotel is that it is not in Sultanahnmet (a great neighborhood for tourists but not for business people). The rooms looking west look over the Golden Horn and the views change constantly. It is also convenient to the Caddesi Istaklil which is right up the hill.

Room Tip: Get a room that looks out over the water
