Grand Peninsula Hotel
Ranked #291 of 1,175 Hotels in Istanbul
Reviewed 14 October 2011

We moved to the Grand Peninsula after a disappointing night at a noisy and overpriced hotel nearby. The small staff here is helpful and personable. The room was clean and comfortable and airy, and because the hotel is located on a cobbled side street, it's very quiet. You're just a ten-minute walk away from the big sights like Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Good breakfasts.

We stayed in Istanbul for 3 nights and loved our experience! The hotel room was clean and quite modern and had a great shower with excellent water pressure! When booking I communicated by email and found my emails to be answered very promptly and the staff very helpful in organizing our airport shuttles. Ramazan and the evening staff (can't remember his name right now) were great at helping us with planning our Istanbul adventures. Our favourite recommendation was the walking tour - Istanbul Highlights I think.... Our guide was passionate and knowledgeable and I learned so much. The hotel was centrally located and within walking distance of the major attractions. Another highlight was our night out in Taksim and going to a meyhane for live turkish music! (even though it was smoky). All and all a wonderful time and an excellent hotel.

Room Tip: can't remember the room number, but we were on the 4th floor with a view of the bosphorus (and s...

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at the grand peninsula hotel. We chose this hotel because of its location. The hotel is central to most of the top istanbul sights: 10 minute walk to blue mosque and hagia sophia. There are plenty of restaurants right down the street. We also found their shuttle service to and from airport very convenient, cost was 20 euros each way to ataturk airport. The hotel serves breakfast on the roof with a nice view. Having breakfast every morning was a great way to start the day before exploring the city.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. They also have free wi fi, which was a nice bonus. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in a clean, centrally located and affordable hotel in Istanbul.
