The staff were really helpful and pleasant. We were welcomed with a complimentary drink, which we took in their lovely terraced restaurant. We had our first meal there too with a really good musician playing. The room was clean and comfortable with a sea view. The hotel is situated just 5 minutes walk from some of the best sites in Istanbul including the Blue Mosque. The warm welcome was continued every time we arrived back from our trips in Istanbul. We would definitely stay at the Byzantium again.

Very pleased with our short stay at this hotel because it is so well situated. The most important sites are within easy walking distance. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a superior room on the top floor and its well worth paying the extra for the views of the Marmaris Sea, the Bosphorus and the Blue Mosque. If you don't book a room with a view you can still enjoy a meal in the very reasonably priced rooftop restaurant and enjoy the views from there.
The room was large and very clean.
The area and the hotel are not the quietest and if you are a light sleeper you would be advised to sleep with the window shut.
Travellers from Western Europe and USA should be aware that you need to buy an e-visa in advance. If you don't have one on arrival at Istanbul you have to buy one and you can only pay for this in cash: US dollars, Euros, or English pounds only.

Room Tip: great views from top floor

Just back from trip to Istanbul. Stayed at The Byzantium Hotel...couldn`t fault it. Perhaps bedroom could have been bit bigger, but so clean, and staff extremely helpful and professional. Breakfast, lunch and dinner there was excellent. Be careful if you have the terracotta pot meal at other restaurants...yuk! Within walking distance to sights. A great trip all round!

Byzantium is in the old town and hence very accessible to the Aya Sofia, Topkapi palace and Blue Mosque.. we were a bit disappointed with the room sizes after having seen the website, as the rooms look much grander in the website... service was very good and the staff at the reception were very friendly and helpful.. the biggest advantage of the place is its location.

Room Tip: the rooms above the 2nd floor are better..

We stayed at Byzantium as part of a flight and Hotel package with British Airways. The staff were welcoming and friendly throughout our stay and we had a very comfortable 5 days there. The room was a little small but had everything we needed and was spotlessly clean, and the beds were comfy and the bathroom worked efficiently. Our room was also quite quiet. The buffet breakfast was amazing with so many plentiful dishes to choose from. We had an excellent meal in the rooftop restaurant which had the most wonderful views of the Marmara sea and the Blue Mosque
The location was perfect for walking to all the main sights and for using public transport for venturing further afield.
We were delighted with the Byzantium and would definitely stay again

Room Tip: Our room was facing a side street which was quite quiet

We stayed five nights in this lovely hotel. The perfect location for sightseeing and a wonderful view from the rooftop terrace restaurant. All staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was to our liking. The hotel had arranged pick up at airport, wonderful as arrived in the evening and always difficult to know best way to transfer to the hotel. Thanks for a wonderful stay and we would stay here again should we come back to Istanbul.

Room Tip: Superior room, had a wonderful view over the Marmara Sea.
