The TomTom Suites is a completely renovated ex-franciscan house, now a stylish boutique hotel part of the Small Luxury Hotel of the World. We give TomTom the highest marks because of:
Location: in the modern side of Istanbul but very close to Galata bridge, therefore very convenient to reach all old town locations (mosques, Topkapi, Gran Bazaar...). 10 minutes by taxi unlike other luxury hotel around Taksim. Nested in a quiet well-guarded street in front of Italian consulate.
Room: large, well equipped, modern furniture, wood floor, excellent bed, large marble bathroom. Very impressive by all standards for anyone who likes this style (website is realistic). WiFi working well in the room. Our daughter slept in the same room, quite comfortably, the room size is really large.
Service: always up to the expected standard, kind and extremely helpful on hints for visits around the city or booking a nice restaurant in town.
Food: breakfast is served next to the lobby, quiet and rich selection of food, iPads available for guests. Small restaurant on the rooftop terrace (4th floor), pleasant setting and good quality food, mix of international and turkish cuisine.
We stayed 5 days and have always enjoyed returning to our room after a busy day around Istanbul.
