I can't say more for the location, in the middle of Sultanahmet very close to the Grand Bazar, blue mosque and all main attractions. They...

Location apart, this was a shocker. I can forgive rooms being shabby as long as they are clean and comfortable. They weren't. I stayed here at the end of a tour and the tour cmpany should be ashamed to put people up here.

Positive: Nice and friendly staff and convenient location. The rest: Unfortunately, rooms were unhygienic and breakfast was substandard. Although staff helped me change the room and gave a better quality room but even that was not properly cleaned (fungus under the table etc). Bathrooms are in appalling condition. With simimlar price better hotels can be found in Istanbul even im...

I have stayed at this hotel on many occasions and will stay again and again. The hotel is basic but it is very clean, the staff are lovely and in a perfect location to explore Istanbul. The breakfast is a traditional turkish breakfast of bread, olives, cheese, boiled egg, jams and tea or coffee.

I traveled back to this hotel this year again as I enjoyed my stay there last time. It's cheap, clean, safe and close to all the major tourist attractions. The staff are excellent and really looked after me whilst I was there. They are all very nice people and so much fun! Great little place!

The hotel has a serious hygene problem. The bathrooms dont look like they have EVER been cleaned. After flushing the toilet the bathroom floor would be wet.... disgusting!. Pay a bit more more and stay in a proper hotel

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.
