My Husband and I alongwith our eight year old son stayed at Grand Durmaz Hotel during the last week of May 2012. The hotel is very clean and comfortable. The tram station right outside the hotel makes it very easy to commute. The Hotel staff is very helpful and friendly. We had a great stay at Grand Durmaz.

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighbourhood Profile
Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighbourhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.

“On making your booking clearly state that you require a quiet room. When checking in remind staff of your request for a quiet room and if you subsequently have grounds for complaint, management cannot say that you did not make your requirements clear.”
