Hotel Polatdemir
Ranked #411 of 1,175 Hotels in Istanbul
Reviewed 21 June 2014

As you can see in the picture, this hotel is narrow and straight up. The lift is small and the staff is helpful. Our room was comfortable and looked as if it had been recently remodeled. I was told that all the rooms are equally modern. The breakfast buffet was a great way for us to start our visit to Istanbul. They had fresh fruit (even cherries !), eggs, an assortment of bread, Turkish Delight, dried fruit and nuts, cheeses, and probably things that I've forgotten now. The employees at the hotel were our first encounter with Turkish citizens and they made a very good impression. I don't know how they can be so friendly and eager to please after they've served millions of us tourists.

Room Tip: The suites are a little larger than the average room.

We were impressed by how well run this small hotel was & it's convenient location to the metro, trams, buses & walking distance to Grand Bazaar. The breakfasts were amazing with a large selection of local cheeses, meats, fruits, breads & even puddings & cakes! The rooms are a bit compact but the front rooms have views of the busy streets which is interesting. The bathroom was big with a wonderful shower & clean towels every day. The reception staff were friendly & helpful & gave us an early check in at 9.30am & a breakfast, which we were very grateful for!
It was half the price of the hotels in the more fashionable area of the old town.

The hotel is situated in a superb location, just minutes from Aksaray Metro station and opposite a tram stop. Around are many excellent eating places and high-end shopping, and you can reach everything (sight-seeing and shopping in other bargain-districts) perfectly from there.
The rooms are small but very clean and tidy, and the mini-bar was all free at our stay, but the view was into the back-yard. The breakfast buffet was very good, with good choices but no live station.
Overall a very nice and pleasant stay.

cosy and superb.
We were a group of ten people and two infants. We enjoyed our stay. The staff were professional and friendly. The hotel location is perfect since it's close to Tram1-Aksaray stop, Metro1-Aksaray stop, Metro 2-yenikapi stop and Marmaray Metro - yenikapi stop.
We will definitely stay there next time.

Room Tip: All rooms are compact

This hotel provides decent value for money, the room is alright but nothing spectacular but the beds are good and the room amenities are adequate. Other than that the hotel is situated in a great location for commute and the breakfast is really good, typically hotels in this class offer typical Turkish breakfast but this hotel does a good combination of Turkish and non Turkish options. Moreover the staff speaks a little English and is quite helpful and the room service is also decent and fast.

Polatdemir is a fairly decent hotel for the business traveller. I have stayed at Polatdemir on all my travels to Istanbul, i would like it to be known to the hotel management that if a customer keeps coming back to you, you must look after them very well. the hotel has a very impersonal relationship with guests i had a problem with my debit card and they cancelled my booking but they know i always stay at their hotel no one made an effort to contact me to confirm if i still needed the reservation. Also the management is very aloof they don't greet guests or ask if everything is ok they just pass you by the few times i have encountered them at breakfast. customer relationship management does not exist at all. I would love to see an improvement in this area.

Room Tip: rooms facing the street have a better view
