Me and my family visited Istanbul for eight days and the Grand Ant Hotel made this visit a thousand time better. this is becouse of the the staff and the location. It is most certainly the best hotel to live in if you are looking after a good price and a great location. It was close to the tram (the local trainsatition) Aksaray, and other must see spots of Istanbul. The location of the Hotel saved us alot of money, we never had to use a taxi or the tram to visit all the tourist spots. The Grand Bazaar, Topkapy Palace, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Yerebatan Place, Mýsýr Bazaar and the Archaeology Museum all was just a a few minutes from the hotel. And if you dont want to walk there are tram stops and bus stops along the way.

The breakfest was very good, with orange juice, tea, cornflakes, a varitey of cheese, butter, jam and olives. Freshmade bread and a lovely staff, that waited patiently untill everybody was finished before they took away the breakfest, though the time had passed ten a clock.

The clean staff was so nice he really made the visit comfortable, and the 24 houre reception service was very good. The staff always gave us suggestion to diffrent activitys in the city.

And for the noise, we wanted a quite room and they gave us that free of charge, so there is no problem. The rooms was clean an they had 44 tv chanels for example cnn.The lounge was beutiful and quite and you have internet acess in youre room and in the lounge. Just ask for the code when you arrive

So me and my family would most certainly visit this hotel again and wish you would do the same.

Stayed here for 3 nights on a city break in March. The main factors in choosing the hotel were price and proximity to the tramline. The hotel is about 5 mins walk from the Aksaray station, which gives easy access to most of the tourist attractions, which was great.
The hotel itself is in a fairly busy part of town - seemingly close to several nightclubs and discos. The noise from the streets (lots of honking!) and discos at night was fairly loud - although it wasn't too bad (light sleepers may have a problem though)
The room was clean, but pretty small - not a problem if you're not planning to spend most of your time sightseeing though.
Breakfast was a typical continental buffet, nothing outstanding but not terrible either.
Hotel is probably a good choice for the budget-concious, but may not be to your taste if you expect a little more from your hotels.

We stayed at this hotel for eight nights and couldn't be more happier. Costs were very competitive so we decided to reserve this hotel. Hotel was very clean and staff was helpful and friendly.

Only few complaints come in mind. You will need earplugs if you aren't used to the noises of the major city. Turks have a bad habit of using horn a lot. Also there are night clubs near the hotel and can cause some noise in the middle of the night.

Also beds felt like concrete slabs. If you aren't used to one, it will get uncomfortable.

Hotel's location is perfect. You can get from Atatürk airport straight from metro and only need to walk only few blocks. Also there is a tram line next to hotel so you can get with only 0.75€ to pretty much everywhere worth going. Only Kariye Church is harder to get to, but well worth going. (Take the second stop for metro and walk along old city walls, after the roundabout turn left.)

I booked the hotel at the travel agent in Kuwait (I live in Kuwait). It was only usd 180 for 5 days.

The room is good but not the best. Breakfast also good enough. The service is average.

The only thing I like is the area. Aksaray is quite far away from blue mosque area. So everthings would be more cheap compared with the tourist area.

To go to the sultanahmet area and grand bazaar, we were used the tram. The tram is the best way to go around to the tourist area.

We found it difficult to book on the hotel website and made a telephone booking. When we arrived they had no knowledge of our visit and quoted us 60 euros a night per room
Friends from Bulgaria we had arranged to meet were quoted 30 euros per room per night on a website and also booked by telephone and when they arrived the day after us there was no record of their intended visit although the hotel had room.
We checked out a day earlier and were told the p[rice was 30 euros per person per room = 60 euros.
Our friends who were leaving the next day accompanied me to reception and said they had been quoted 30 euros per room, were not paying any more and as we had selected the hotel for a total of seven people to meet up it was unfair we should have to pay double.
After a 15 minute discussion the receptionist finally relected and charged us 30 euros per night per room - half price.
It pays to haggle in Istanbul!
