“Great 4 days at Yazar”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

I went with 3 other friends and we had a great time at Yazar. The concierge is super friendly and helpful, always showing us the best places to eat, where to go for certain things (e.g. Whirling Dervishes, buying Turkish towels, random things like that), and booking things for us (e.g. restaurant reservations, trips, shows, etc.). However, they were not imposing/trying to sell us on things. Very clean and minimalist. Rooms have smart TVs! And the included breakfast is great! A very large spread of breakfast items and it is open for over 3 hours. Yazar is excellent for a budget hotel.

We stayed here for 5 nights and it was really great. Hotel is situated near to the main city attractions 5 minutes walking distance to Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque and 5 minutes to Egyptian spice bazaar and 10 minutes to Galata bridge. For that price the hotel is excellent!!!! The rooms are great, we stayed at deluxe room and it was really big, with smart television and very comfortable bed and great bathroom. I liked a lot the modern design of a hotel, because everything that I saw in Istanbul has their traditional design and I didn't like that, because of that I choose Yazar hotel. The stuff is very polite and always eager to help. :) The breakfast was also great, everything was fresh and they have refilled everything very quickly. * My recommendation is to put maybe more options for breakfast ( maybe some typically Turkish breakfast or Turkish delights like Baklavas) but it was yummy anyway. Overall it was great and it's definitely my recommendation! :) p.s. I also strongly recommend to book room on their hotel site - because they give you BIGGER discount than BOOKING.COM or some other sites.

Good clean hotel. Good service. The staff is really nice and helpful. The manager Engin was very helpful with travel tips and planning our day out in Istanbul and other day trips. Even the owner of the hotel was very helping and cordial.

The breakfast was good and also plenty of it. The location is very central to some of the most important sights in Istanbul.
