I had booked this hotel through this website for my honeymoon due to its highly recommended status,experience, and value for money from which I was not disappointed. The location was ideal as you experience both the, close-by sightseeing touristy neighborhood attractions and the local neighborhood of Sultanahmet which created a holistic view of what the location had to offer. The hotel was centrally situated around the main attractions (albeit slight uphill walks, but all of Istanbul is hilly!); a 10min to walk to the Sultanahmet square where blue mosque is etc and 10min walk the other way to the Grand Bazaar and even the coast, where there were excellent sea food restaurants.

The hotel was very nicely presented and well decorated and upon arrival (free shuttle service to and from Ataturk airport because of our long stay) we had a mini presentation and walkthrough of a map of Istanbul from Serhat, the guest relations manager, who was very helpful and basically told us what to see when and where and how to plan our stay which was wonderful. He was always there when you wanted help with anything from finding directions to making reservations at some of the top restaurants and sea cruises...he made our trip to Istanbul worthwhile and I would have felt lost if he did not guide us with his excellent recommendations.

The room was clean, nice and of adequate size for a couple, with a Hamam style turkish bath which was a very nice addition to any bathroom. Room keeping was always on time and precise and left the room very clean and oragnised. Serhat even decorated our room in a honeymoon concept for free, as I had mentioned it to him in my email correspondence prior to our trip. Buffet breakfast was always a nice thing to wake up to and was very satisfying especially with it being on a terrace on top of the hotel with a view overlooking the Marmara sea!

Overall we had thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel and cannot recommend it enough. We miss our room! And SPECIAL THANKS to Serhat!!! and the staff who made it an extra special trip!

It´s hard to define the Ottoman Park Hotel. For instance, it is important to mention that this is no 5 star luxury hotel, nevertheless, it is to be considered a GREAT PLACE TO STAY!!

The LOCATION is very good. It seems unthinkable to stay anywhere outside Sultanhamed neighborhood, if yours is a vacation trip. The hotel is not located on the must clean or nicest part of the historical Istanbul, but it is definitely close to everything. In many reviews you´ll find comments regarding the uphill walk to every site. Nevertheless we used a taxi ride every morning to get there, and then a confortable downhill walk at night. Make sure you get back earlier than 10 PM as it seems unsafe to do it later. You´ll find groups of men drinking in the street and it seems safer to avoid that situation.

The STAFF is ULTRAPOLITE, and always willing to help.

The FOOD is just fine. Let´s say you wont find anything extraordinary, but every basic is there. For breakfast buffet; eggs, milk, coffee, bread, honey, jam and some cereal.

The ROOMS are quite good for European standards. Sufficient space for 2 people and 4 big suitcases. :o)

The most positive thing about this place, is a feeling of attention. You feel like there’s someone thinking 24/7, how could I make my costumers happy? Courtesy bottle of wine! Courtesy fruit platter, complementary Turkish delights..... No power adapter??? no problem, they have one for you!!


Drawbacks:
We found some URINE stains on the WC.
Internet was off for 2 days
The driver of the shuttle service that took us back to the airport when leaving was falling asleep while driving!!! Scary dangerous!!
We had just one small bottle of water as a hotel compliment during a 7 day stay...

Room Tip: the rooms facing the street have a nice view but will have more car noise!

Location near the waterfront and a short uphill walk to the Grand Bazaar and Sultanahmet Square where all the main attractions are located.. The hotel is very clean and up to date From our room on the 6th floor we had a fairly good view of the water front and all the fishing fleet. We went out walking at night and felt perfectly safe. It seems more like a true Istanbul neighborhood. Wifi was free and excellent service. Free Breakfast buffet was good and had an amazing view of the waterfront. We would stay again as the price was reasonable for Istanbul.

Me, my wife and 8 month old daughter stayed here from 3rd October till 10th 2012 and I must say it was a really enjoyable experience. The staff were lovely - each and every one of them especially Serhat, Ali and Haleel were very helpful and always tended to our needs. Breakfast at the roof terrace provided a beautiful view of the Marmara sea although we didn't enjoy the breakfast itself but that is to do with a personal taste. The restaurant food on the other hand was lovely! Our room and bathroom was quite small and the cleaners did not speak much English which made it difficult for them to understand what we required. As for the location, it is in a nice urban area with lots of locals and only a 10 min walk up hill to the Blue Mosque, Sofia Hagia and the Grand Bazaar.
