We chose this hotel based on other reviews from Tripadvisor and were not diappointed. It's a small boutique hotel in a great location, and what makes it special was the excellent level of service provided by management and staff. Nothing was too much trouble, the hotel even stored a spare suitcase for us whilst we went on our travels around Turkey. Our rooftop room had wonderful views of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia, and was very comfortable and well appointed. The breakfasts were excellent, lost of choice which varied every day. And finally a good location, central to all Istanbul tourist sites, yet in a relatively quiet side street - double glazed windows ensure no street noise at all.

From the minute I was picked up from the airport with Hotel Nena driver, I knew it was going to be a good stay. Fantastic staff, and ever so professional.
Perfectly clean rooms, serviced everyday and with water bottles every day.
Beautiful breakfast , with all options, and a view of the Blue Mosque and Palace to gaze at every morning.
Value for money, perfect location, safe and very clean.
Loved it and will stay again . Highly recommended .

We stayed Nena in April and had the roof top room with a balcony that had amazing views to Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque. The hotel is not a four/five star but it is certainly personal and lovely boutique hotel. The service is excellent and we really enjoyed the location in the old town, at least in April when the weather was a bit chilly and there were only anfew other tourists there.

Room Tip: Have a room with a view, it is a bit more expensive but that is amazing and worth the money!

We were first timers in Istanbul and picked it off the internet after reviewing about 20 others and were not disappointed. The reception drinks and briefing of do's and don't's by muzzy was something we had not experienced before and it gave us the confidence to go exploring straight away. The hotel is in the middle of all the attractions so walking is the go. Great views from the restuarant and the breakfast was just like the photos we previewed. The staff were like a family and go out of their way to tell you about places to go. Got a good insite into Turkey from these people. We will be back to the Nena next year with our son and grandson. The free trip to the airport at the end really topped off a great time. Well done to Muzaffer and his staff.

Room Tip: Top floor at the front has the views. All are quiet.

Fantastic position, well appointed, clean and spacious rooms and with a team of staff that couldn't do enough to help our stay. Great selection at breakfast and the most amazing views. Will definitely come again and we have already recommended it to our friends.

We (retired couple) stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in June 2012. We booked months ahead and got a very good rate. The initial appeal for us was location (centre of the old city), included breakfast and included transfer from the airport. From the minute we walked through the arrival gate at the airport our expectations were exceeded. We were met and very efficiently transferred to the hotel. At reception the staff were friendly, efficient and sat us down with a drink while they gave us information, advice and a map of the city. The room was pleasant with large windows and a french balcony overlooking the street. The bathroom was clean and well appointed (shower was very good). But perhaps the real ace was the rooftop terrace where the breakfast and complimentary afternoon snacks were provided. The panoramic view from here stretched from the Blue Mosque to the Bosporus and is an unforgettable experience at the close of day as the call to prayer floats across the city. The "afternoon snacks" were more like a smorgasboard and drinks were reasonably priced. The food selection at breakfast would satisfy any taste. Top votes from us Hotel Nena!

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel have tall windows with french balconies overlooking the street.
