Tasty food, clean rooms, polite stuff. The hotel is nearby to the famous sights. There is a parking!!! It was rainy while our stay and the hotel has provided umbrellas to his guests. It's was a nice surprise for us.

If you like walking, everything is near you. The check in was a little rough, but everything else was great. Best things about it the perfect attitude of the staff, and the lovely quite sleeping. You can see the sea from here. A market in front of the hotel. A nice breakfast.

We stayed here for three nights while exploring Istanbul before a Mediterranean cruise. The hotel is clean and comfortable ... very true to Best Western European standards. The bathroom had adequate amenities and large towels (an unusual plus). We had reliable wireless in the room. Air conditioning worked fine. The room was quiet. Breakfast (included in our rate) was ample...

The location could be better, it was my first time going to Istanbul so I wasn't sure what area so book. There isn't much around when it comes to restaurants and things like that. It is however quite close to the Grand Bazaar, maybe 10-15 walk, which I enjoyed. The hotel itself is clean, polite staff and all right breakfast....

Not the best location for tourism in Istanbul, but very convenient for the ferry to Bursa (ten minutes by taxi to the terminal). A nice, clean hotel, very friendly and helpful staff. I had to leave early for the ferry so the hotel provided a 'breakfast box' - much appreciated.

The hotel was reasonable: Comfortable bed Good shower Average breakfast The view out of our window was a building site. The area was not so great for us, there didn't seem to be any restaurants / nightlife nearby. The attractions were a fair walk away. We ended up moving hotels after one night to stay closer to Taksim Square.

We stayed at this hotel in January 2016.

They also provide 2 free small bottles of water which was great. The hotel was clean but my only complaint...

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.
