Tom Tom Suites is a great hotel to visit Istanbul. Tom Tom is a fairly new hotel with a contemporary décor. It is located on the same street as the Italian embassy. The street is very quiet as access is restricted. Tom Tom is a 5 to 10 minute walk to the tram line that runs direct to the major sites- really easy to use and quite low cost. Rooms are spacious and well appointed. Istikal Street, a pedestrian promenade is a short uphill walk from Tom Tom. Staff at Tom Tom is very helpful at the reception arranging dinner reservations, transportation, etc. (particularly Alican). They also provide excellent maps and directions for getting around. Do buy the Istanbulkart for use on public transportation and the Museum Kard for entry to all the major sites (you do not have to wait in line to buy tickets at thesights). To return to Tom Tom try the “Tunnel” (a funicular) up to Istikal and then walk to the street (can’t remember name) and downhill to Tom Tom.
Brekfast at Tom Tom is served on the top floor restaurant with a fine view. Nice buffet for breakfast. Dinner was also very pleasant there.More
