My husband Sam and I really enjoyed our 5 night stay at the hotel. Everyone there was very helpful, kind, and considerate especially Aydin Yidirim. He made our visit to Istanbul one of the best vacations we ever had and really went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable and memorable.
I highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: All rooms are nice!

I have stayed at this hotel three times now, and would highly recommend it for any length of stay in Istanbul. It is centrally located, easy to walk to the many excellent restaurants as well as shopping (Grand Bazaar, Spice Market, St. Sophia and Blue Mosque). The rooms are very clean and well decorated and the wifi works excellent. Good food and drinks in the pub that is on site as well. Great place to stay !!

We spent four nights in late July at the BW President Hotel in the Old City of Istanbul. The rooms were clean and comfortable, if slightly uninspired. The breakfast buffet was just excellent, included hot breakfast items and all kinds of Turkish items that were fresh and delicious, such as fruits and vegetables and cheeses and gorgeous marmalades. The restaurant was only a bit above average, but was reasonably priced and very comfortable to be in. English Pub a fair enough place to have a drink. An excellent gift shop on premises with a wide range of products at very fair prices. I greatly preferred this shop to the Grand Bazaar, I can tell you. Good location in the Old City - and very safe. All the staff are professional in every sense of the word. I would certainly stay there again, particularly if travelling with family or for business. Very nice place.

Very clean rooms, staff very polite & friendly and spoke good English. Easy access to shops & restaurants and within walking distance to the Grand Bazaar. Excellent breakfast buffet included. We were very impressed by their Guest Relations staff Ms Serap Einy, who was very knowledgeable, professional and very helpful to provide advice on where to go and see in Istanbul. Lobby is spacious and well decorated. I have no hesitation to recommend this hotel to other people. Also free wifi !

Close to the easy-to-use tram line, close to major attractions! A great place to come home to after a full day in Istanbul. Walk to the Grand Bazaar, restaurants and shops! an ATM on every block. English speaking staff was helpful. Large hotel with rooftop pool and rooftop restaurant. Spotless, very good breakfast buffet included. Reasonable rates given location. Walk further down the hill to the sea side seafood restaurants just a couple blocks away!

Room Tip: We did not upgrade and our room was perfect and good size.

What a superb place and what a lovely people with excellent service skills.
Every moment was a pure pleasure, and you felt that you are the most important person on this planet for them. From very beginning till the last minute of my short trip, service was impeccable.
Lobby is spacious and well decorated. There is a small in hotel store that you can do last minute shopping with a really nice gentleman working there.
Room was great, clean, neat and functional. Air conditioning working the way it should, and the way you want it. Cleaning staff friendly, discrete and professional. Business centre available with 6 computers and printer, free of charge.
Hotel roof – no comment. Just a dream. Small indoor pool, clean and perfect to refresh. You can have drink and enjoy magnificent view of the city. Prices are reasonable and service amazing.
If you are in this hotel, definitely stay for dinner on the roof top. It is experience of a life time. I can only say thank you everyone in this hotel for welcoming me and my colleagues with warm smile and open hands.
Bravo

Booked a terrace suite at the Best Western for the pirce of an upscale hotel and turned out to have an amazing experience. Terrace suite overlooking the Marmara sea, the Blue Mosque. This hotel is ideally located next to the Grand Bazar and 1 block from the tramway. Excellent breakfast on the rooftop restaurant with amazing views.

Room Tip: Book early and get the suites with the terrace.
