Two grown up female friends and colleagues traveling together, our purpose was a working weekend catching up with the Istanbul Biennial after a seminar with a larger group in a hotel in the Taksim area. Maywood was a good experience, we stayed in similar rooms in the same corridor for two nights, Friday to Sunday. Friendly welcome, working wi-fi everywhere (we experienced erratic services in other Istanbul hotels), good breakfast and a central location was important to our choice. We appreciated the peaceful atmosphere and the sea-gull wake-up call from the sea-side nearby. The location is central both to transportation (the tram is essential to move around, taxis are stuck in traffic jams) and historical sights, as well as the Grand Bazar, the spice market and many of the historical sights of Istanbul.

Hardwood floors, very good beds and clean and fresh decoration with a slightly kitchy Turkish baroque feel to it, added to the experience. The only downside was the temperature and air quality system. The air conditioning was not effective, and it was not an alternative to turn it off, as the windows only could be opened very little.
Even so, I plan to return to Maywood for a stay with my family later!

We stayed at the Maywood for 3 nights in Sept. prior to a cruise. The pick-up service included in our rate was very easy to find as we exited the immigration area. The staff at the hotel could not have been more welcoming or helpful and were always there with a hello or a willingness to help with sightseeing suggestions. The breakfast buffet is typically european with something there for even the pickiest appetite. Try the yoghurt and honey - it is amazing!!! Within walking distance of absolutely everything and the tram is almost right outside the door - if you are going farther afield. While we had twin beds (that were very comfortable) our room had a wonderful deep bathtub that was fabulous after a long day of sightseeing. I would without a doubt return to this hotel again.

Room Tip: we were on the first floor so were able to use the stairs - didn't have to wait for elevators!!

We had a short 4 night stay at the Maywood Hotel and were very happy with our selection. The hotel is in the old sector of Istanbul so is very close (walking distance) to all historic sites. We arrived at 10.30am and were able check in straight away. The decor of the hotel is luxurious and all the usual amenities were available in the room, including a fridge which had been sorely missing from many of our other hotel stays. The room size was plenty big enough. The breakfast was wonderful, so much choice and variety, very Turkish but there were also boiled eggs, tomatoes, sausages and toast for the less adventurous. I could not fault the staff they were extremely helpful and friendly and we did not feel there was an expectation of a tip. We were given a small welcome gift on arrival and another on departure.
All in all 10 our of 10 on every count.

Room Tip: The hotel only has a small number of double bed rooms so if you really want one you should email the hotel. They will do their best but cannot guarantee availability. We had a double bed and a balcony.

My wife and I stayed at the Maywood for 5 nights and really enjoyed the experience. The staff were super-friendly and helpful (particularly when the hotel computer needed to be changed to an english keyboard!), and the hotel is extremely well situated in the old city with easy access to the top attractions (5 minute walk) and the Bosphorous sea-front. There are excellent restaurants nearby, and a great tram and railway link, and while the streets are narrow - and impossibly 'two way flow' - taxis do manage to get to the hotel without too much hassle, and nothing that a bit of backing up cannot fix!

Our room (304) faced the street and only occasionally did we hear a shout. It had a tiny balcony, a small but adequate bathroom with an excellent shower, two single beds (they offered to move us to a double bed), but limited cupboard space, or a place to put suitcases (But hey, old is generally tiny!) Spotlessly clean - the only thing is that that don't provide a minimum of bottled water, even though they advise you not to drink the tap water. The breakfast - from 7.00 to 11.00 is humungous although the coffee was Nescafe!! Furniture in main areas is period style and fits in very well.

Found this hotel on Trip advisor originally. Decided to book it based on the reviews. I am not disappointed. We got off the cruise by 8 30 and arrived here by 9 30.
We were not to check in till late afternoon. They said we could have breakfast at the hotel. They had a Turkish buffet here. The buffet was marvelous. Amazing. The dining room is beautiful. The rooms are old style because they are in "Old Town" but a great boutique hotel and inwould stay here again and again.

The Turkish people are attractive, friendly and just plain nice. Very welcoming to Americans. Great sense of humor.
