It tells the story of an over 100 years old building with a stylish language, but without loosing the essence of the story.

I have traveled all around the world, and I have never encountered a hotel staff that was so kind and helpful. We had a few challenges on our trip with PCR testing, changing money, etc., and the hotel staff went above and beyond to help us. In addition, the rooms were spacious and stylish, the bathrooms were beautiful, and it was right next to a fun, busy area with tons of restaurants and things to do. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could.

Amazing spacious rooms with a massive bathroom and excellent service throughout. Hotel is super clean and well decorated. Our guy at the the reception counter as well as the guy who served us breakfast every morning were all fantastic and co- operative. It's a stone's throw from istiklal Avenue (there is a narrow gully from which you can access istiklal) and very close to galata etc. Many nice restaurants and cafes close by too. Nothing to complain.

TomTom Suites is that wonderful combination of a hideaway in a convenient location. Visiting in November 2020, during the partial lockdown due to COVID, we felt as safe at TomTom Suites we would have in our own neighborhood. COVID safety regulations were obviously a high concern and were followed gracefully without disruption or discomfort. The Classic Suite we had was beautiful and spacious – from a desk suitable for work to the bathtub for luxurious relaxation. The staff - Nurol, Atilla and Serhad - were wonderful to talk with and amazingly helpful in every aspect: In addition to helping us with directions around Istanbul or printing our airline information, they also helped us make plans such as a visit to a Hammam and a special event at local religious institution. The breakfast was a daily pleasure – bountiful and fresh. And we truly enjoyed the company of our restaurant host, Fuat. While we were travelling at an unusual and challenging time, our stay at TomTom Suites was worry free and provided both an exciting launchpad for our daily activities and a wonderful place to come back to. We would happily stay there again – and hopefully will!

This is a stylish boutique hotel with the most fabulous views from the restaurant, great food, very comfortable beds, marble bathrooms with spa baths and all set in an historic part of this very historic city-and all luxuries including a library are in-house. The transport links are close and easy- there is even a Sinan designed mosque a few 100 meters away. The staff are exceptional in every respect, from Nurol and the other gentlemen at the front desk to the restaurant staff where nothing is too much trouble, to the quick and smiling housekeepers. The area is full of local design and antique stores with great cafes and bars abounding. The hotel is very quiet however due to being opposite an embassy so traffic is restricted. You are a 5 minute walk away from the Istikal shopping street as well.

Being an avid traveler (over 50 countries) and having stayed at numerous hotels, I can honestly stay our stay at Tom Tom suites has been one of the best experiences we have had. First and foremost it's the team that is outstanding. Serhad, Nurol, Fuat, and Mehmet went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and help us out in every way. We love our eggs and Furat and the breakfast staff cooked up perfect omelets every morning. The bedding is extremely comfortable, sheets and pillows top class, and the rooms spacious and well-appointed. Location is ideal as it is very close to Cihangir ( an funky, artsy area), Galata, and Istaklal. The only drawback is that due to the steep climbs in some areas it may not be the best location for those who don't like steep walks. Thanks Tom Tom and its staff. We will be back!
