“Barcelo Saray Hotel”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

This is pleasant and comfortable hotel close to the Grand Bazaar. It is also located next to the main tram line.

We stayed in a "superior" room of adequate size, which was well appointed. It contained a comfortable king size bed. The bathroom is fairly small but contains all amenities one would expect.

Breakfast is served buffet style in a pleasant restaurant on the top floor with a view of the old town.

The personnel is friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: The rooms on the south side of the upper floors have a view of the Marmara Sea.

This is a well-managed, comfortable hotel in an excellent location. A short walk to the Grand Bazaar, it also has the advantage of being close to a tram stop, so access to the other principal sights is quick and cheap. The breakfast is excellent and the top floor restaurant has wonderful views, from the great bulk of the Beyazit Mosque opposite to the Bosphorous Bridge in the far distance. Rooms are adequately sized rather than large: all have showers (no baths) and free wi-fi. The only disappointment was the lack of tea/coffee-making facilities. After an initial mix-up over our reservation, the management worked very hard to regain our confidence: they succeeded, and we will happily stay there again.

Room Tip: Many of the rooms face into internal atriums; these suffer less from the early-morning blast from th...

Booked for us by our travel agent sadly who knows not much. Despite explicit instructions of what we wanted we found small rooms, no fresh air because no exterior windows. Many staff have insufficient English to assist despite wanting to help. Great location for shopping at Grand Bazaar basically across the road. Beds good. Decor good. Food average. Clean, new looking rooms but again, tiny. No fresh milk for coffee/tea but this is a common thing in Turkey I believe.

Room Tip: There apparently are sea view rooms on floors 4 and 5.

The hotel is well located just outside of Sultanhamet touristic area. The staff is very helpful and the rooms are clean. Standard rooms are quite small, therefore, we stayed in a Superior room which is slightly roomier but still small with almost no space for more than one piece of luggage. Beds are extra firm. The hotel should be classied as a three star hotel. The price to overall services makes if it a good value to visit Istanbul. The breakfast is excellent and we were glad to have booked the room with breakfast included.

Clean comfortable rooms in an ideal location for local transport and a lot of the sights. Warm welcome and great service in a great value hotel. Didn't try the food as there is so much choice nearby including an area of fish resteraunts at the bottom of the hill.

Room Tip: Quieter rooms on higher floors or away from the front.

Geat staff
Excellent location ...two minutes walkinf from Grand Bazaar and 7 minutes from Blue Mosque and Sophie Mosque.
Delicious breakfast with an amazing view.
Also if you pay an extra fee you can have a great view from your room to the mosque or sea.
