We spent 6 nights at Nena this month and we really liked it. Its location is a real winner, beside the "tram street" of Sulthanamet and about 400 meters of the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia.
The breakfast is also very good with lots of options and quality food, and it's served at the highest floor of the building with an amazing view of Istanbul, specially the Bosphorus and the Blue Mosque.
The big drawback of this hotel is the cleanliness of the rooms and bathrooms, as we found patches of dust and mold.

Room Tip: Economy rooms might be warm even in the winter as the windows face to an internal (closed) shaft. Ai...

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at The Nena Hotel. From the moment that you arrive you know that the staff will try to do anything to help make your stay in Istanbul pleasant. Check in was easy and we were offered a welcome drink whilst one of the staff explained where all the famous buildings were in relation to the hotel. Breakfast was good with a wide selection of food. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. All this at a very reasonable price - what more could you ask for?

This review is long overdue. My wife (then fiance) and I stayed at Hotel Nena in June 2012. I decided to book this hotel based on a colleague's recommendation who had stayed there in 2011. Arriving from the airport was pretty easy, despite arriving on a Thursday at rush hour. Check-in was simple and we were offered tea and treats on arrival. The lobby is quite beautiful. Our host, Ahmet (I hope I spelled his name right) was great. We saw him every day during our entire stay. He was friendly, professional, spoke english well, and was extremely accommodating. I really enjoyed speaking to him and he had many recommendations for us to experience Istanbul. Our room was small, but was plenty for our needs. The bathroom was also small but clean. Overall, the room was great. The bed was comfy and we got a good night's rest. Our room faced the street and it was nice to look out the small balcony. The most impressive part of this hotel was the breathtaking view of the Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque. They were so close! Which leads me to my next point. The location of Hotel Nena couldn't be beat. It was just off of the main drag (Divan Yolu Caddesi) that takes you to all the sites. The hotel is more on a small alley-type street, but so are all the other hotels. But you're only one hotel from the main street. The two mosques, the spice market, the Grad Bazaar were all within walking distance or the trolley if preferred. Overall, the hotel was great. We're not hotel snobs, but we also don't stay at discount hotels. For the price, the hotel was a great value and we thought the facilities were just right. I definitely recommend Hotel Nena and I would stay here again.

Room Tip: If you don't mind the city bustle, get a street side room. It was nice to see and hear the city...

This Hotel is small but very pleasant. Hotel personal is very friendly and sympathic. Service in general is great. I had an econmy room w/o view. The window was towards a Shaft (surrounded by walls). The king size bed was enough for my needs and comfortable.
As I was there just for sleep I can't claim. Good panoramic view to the mosques and bosphorus from top floor restaurant. As shown in the webside. Terrace view is fantastic.
The breakfast buffet is fantastic.
As I had a special deal booked via net, the all over result is very good.

This hotel exceeded our expectations. The location is excellent, very close to the blue mosque and many other turistic atractions in the old town. The staff was always very friendly and helpful in giving directions and advice. We were lucky because we were upgraded as soon as we arrived to a deluxe room, which was great and had a nice view to the mosque. The breakfast was very good, with many things to choose from, and including both "international" and Turkish food. The room was very clean, and it was very good to have fresh water every day and to be able to make some coffee or tea inside the room. If I return to Istanbul, I will definitely look for this hotel :-)

Room Tip: There are some rooms with a nice view to the blue mosque. I got one of these rooms. A friend of mine...
