“Great location, welcoming atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

We arrived in Istanbul with an early morning flight, and the lady at the reception offered warm tea and Turkish coffee. Very welcoming atmosphere, the staff is very nice and helpful, ready to meet your needs. Breakfast is in a nice patio which must be at its best in summer, but also December weather was not that bad.
The location is great, you can walk to most of the sites in the old city center and take the tram or train in 5 minutes to other parts of the city.

In comparison the cost stay is cheaper then surrounding hotels. It is a good hotel if you are planning to spend most of your time out... Not all the staff of the hotel speaks English, but it is still possible to communicate what you need, and if a little patience is spent then in most of the cases you get what you ask for. Some times the staff at the reception answer the phone cal and sound as if they have understood your request... If they do not show up in 10-15 minutes then be sure that they did not understood you, and you will need to explain your request personally. One more thing if you have booked through booking.com then in case if by arrival you need to change the hotel do not just inform the hotel management about it. You would need to go through booking.com again. The hotel management is not responsible your booking or its cancellation (which is required to be done some days in advance, otherwise you could be fined...). So if after arrival you have decided to change the hotel and move to another one, be aware that you could be fined, depending on situation - if short notice...
Otherwise the hotel is not bad... You should not expect that for the money you pay you will get more than that, moreover - in such location of Istanbul... Conclusion: the hotel location is good, its staff is polite and respective... All depends on what a person you are yourself... Turks are very nice and polite people - if you are nice and polite yourself... Good stay for every one...

Room Tip: If you need rather quiet room then should choose the ones facing backyard...

Got rooms online at great price. Convenient location. Helpful staff. Kitties are fun(they are all over Istanbul). Bed was a little firm, but we were too tired to really notice. Bathroom was small but functional. Overall very nice.

After a week's stay, here's our Vezir experience... Breakfast: dull buffet continental breakfast with cakes. Quite liked the three cats being around, as not they weren't pushy. The garden looked neglected and unplanted. Bedroom: nice, but hot/cold taps wrong way round and fittings could all do with updating. Hotel ambience: first 3 mornings we were woken up at 5am by loud 'call to prayer' from Blue Mosque but must have got used to it there after. Must have also got used to intrusive evening noise from guests around hotel and in next room.. The roof terrace was nothing more than a bare tiled space and there is no lift. Staff: polite. Location: aside from the minor hill climb to the Blue Mosque / trams the Vezir's location cannot be faulted. The area has a very different vibe from the cafe's up by the trams - much more chilled. So although you 'get what you pay for' from the Vezir - you got a lot more than expected from the local colour. WE LOVED Istanbul. The Vezir served it's purpose.

Room Tip: To avoid noise from others guest's choose a higher room, but there is no lift at the Vezir - bew...

We had a marvelous trip to Turkey and enjoyed our stay at the Vezir Hotel. The location is perfect for sight seeing and dining. The hotel staff were helpful and friendly. Our stay here was all part of a wonderful experience.

We will go back!

Very good location: Historical center (Blue mosque,Hagia Sophia, Topkapi palace) is at 3 minutes walking. The staff is polite, but not all of them are speaking English. Good breakfast in a nice garden (with cats - I don't have a problem with cats, but many people have), wi-fi in the betrooms, very clean rooms and hotel. Minus: small bedroom, bathroom and beds, old sheet and towels.
