“excellent stay”
Reviewed 24 April 2009

Great location for sightseeing - very close to all the main attractions.
The hotel stands out among the rest located in the area.
Staff - very friendly and accommodating.
The rooms are beautifully decorated - and even the executive suites have a jacuzzi bathtub.
Using the hamam for yourself free of charge (by booking it an hour in advance) is definitely the highpoint.

This boutique hotel meets all expectations and more. The jewel of this hotel is it 's hamami (Turkish bath, must reserve ahead of time) and the heat of the hotel is the people who work there. The staff very friendly and helpful. It's walking distances from most of the major attractions in old city of Istanbul (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, etc.) and is in a excellent neighborhood. The restaurant food is great and the next door restaurant, Turquoise was incredible (must try Taski Kebab!). Most of the rooms have little to no views (except top floor), and our room that faced the street was a little noisy in the day. The room decor was modern and new.

This small but intimate hotel was the most perfect location for visiting the main tourist attractions. The staff were delightful and really nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast offered was extensive and dinner in this hotel represented excellent value for money.

We wish we could have stayed longer.

We found this hotel to be very friendly and helpfull from the second we arrived, taking us through all the hotel amenaties and showing us around the spa. Our room was just as advertised with a small suit, jacuzzi bath and balcony with a sea view, although bear in mind that rooms at the back of the hotel do not have such views. The hotel is built to a very good standard, with very nice rooms, good facilities and pleasant restaurant, with a sauna that is very usefull after a long day walking in cold February temperatures. The hotel is also ideally locate for many of the main attractions of the old town, with restaurants and bazars also in walking distance. A very pleasant hotel.

If you happen to be in Istanbul during the colder period of the year, the spa facilities of this hotel are just what you need after a day sightseeing. The very friendly staff provided great service and the location is just perfect for the major sights. Rooms are clean and comfortable (we did not have a seaview but because of the bad weather it didn't make a difference to us). Very good restaurant next door (left hand side).

From the moment we arrived we were truly comfortable and looked after in this fabulous hotel. Our room was spotless and spacious, with a great view of the Bosphorus. The staff could not have been more helpful. The location, in a lovely little street a stone's throw from the Blue Mosque, is just perfect. Akbiyik Caddesi has a village feel to it and there are plenty of great restaurants and bars close by. This hotel has been getting top reviews for a good reason.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Welcome to the Istanbul Art De Vivre!Located at he heart of Istanbul between Europe and Asia, the GLK PREMIER Regency Suites Hotel & Spa commands an extensive view of a relatively small area that has nonetheless witnessed 2000 years of the history of some of the richest civilisations humanity has ever known: Ancient, Greece the Roman Empire, The Byzantine Empire and the Ottoman Empire!It is only a few steps from the Blue Mosque, Saint Sophie and Topkapi Palace. The hotel, a lovely mansion built in 1905, is a listed historic monument today. The elegance of its origin is still amply visible in the neo-classical moulding on the facade and the solid wood or beige Bursa granite floors. Numerous details and features in the house bear witness to a world of such sophistication that its sultans are portrayed holding a flower.The hotel's rugs, like the motifs on the walls, seem to have stepped straight out of the Topkapi Palace.As century old traditions require, the hammam of the GLK PREMIER Regency Suites Hotel & Spa features a suite of three rooms with different functions: hot room, warm room and cool room.The hotel is equally dedicated to maintaining state-of-the-art international hotel standards, which rather than detracting from its historic past, leave its guests free to savour and appreciate this heritage.In this way, the GLK PREMIER Regency Suites Hotel & Spa distils the quintessence of Istanbul's distinctive lifestyle, particularly from its 16 suites:the dome of the Blue Mosque surrounded by six slender minarets, the monotonous chant of the muezzin, the enchanting hush that reigns over the city in the morning, the sweetly scented Topkapi Park, the view of Bosphorous or the Marmara Sea on which the Prince's Islands seem almost to float or its mouth-watering exotic cuisine, etc. The justly dubbed 'Golden Horn', which the hotel overlooks, sumptuously sums up the inexhaustible wealth of this matchless location. ... more   less
