“Great location and great staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

Just arrived from Istanbul yesterday and stayed at Hotel Nena for 7 nights. We were picked up at the airport and were checked in right away. We were pleasantly surprised as soon as we entered the room, bec it was roomy. We were in Goreme and Selcuk before Istanbul and boy, what a difference! We were in room 206, w/ 2 twin beds. We slept well every night, did not even hear the morning call for prayer. The hotel is very well located, just a few steps from Divan Yolu, where the tram/metro is, walking distance to the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazzar, and The Cemberlitas Hamam.The staff was wonderful! We took the Istanbul Eats tour the next morning, Giorgio(?) even drove us to the place after his shift. The breakfast spread was extensive, and the view!! A view of the Hagia Sophia and a full view of The Blue Mosque! Istanbul charmed us. We KNOW we will go back to the city and will stay at Hotel Nena again!

It was a memorable experience at Nena Hotel. The staff was so helpful and helped us with everything we needed. We needed to buy bus tickets to Pammukale and Muzo was so nice that he helped us ordered through the site because we dont speak Turkish. Very centrally located and close to everything.

We spent 4 nights at Hotel Nena, and were very happy with it. The location was great, close to all major attractions, staff helpful, breakfast menu extensive, and the view from the upstairs terrace…wow! Amazing!
Our room was small, but adequate, very clean, and the shower water pressure just great. The AC worked well, was not noisy at all, and even though the hotel is close to a very busy street, with the windows closed, you can’t hear a thing. There are tons of great restaurants within walking distance from the hotel. A good hotel at an affordable price, we would not hesitate to return.

We have spent 3 nights at Hotel Nena, we chose this hotel because of his excellent rates. We were not disappointed at all.
The staff at the reception is really kind, welcoming and helpful.
Our room was the family room for 4 people, it was a little bit tight for us (but next time we'll take 2 rooms).
The breakfast buffet is absolutely exquisite (there was a variety of sweet and Turkish salty food, but no croissants for French breakfast amateurs! Neither fresh orange juice), it is served on the roof top restaurant - terrasse where you have a fantastic scenery of Marmara sea, Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia.
Please also note that Hotel Nena is really close to touristic places (max 5min) as Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia,Topkapi Palace and Grand Bazaar. The hotel is located near tramway station (2min).
You can find also a lot of restaurants near Nena Hotel.
We were really satisfied by this trip and will not hesitate to come back!

Just returned home from Istanbul 10/10/13 after a 5 day trip and what a trip. Nena Hotel is a hidden gem. The staff was outstanding and helped with what ever our request were. The rooms were typical european smaller but very comfortable and clean. What is the hidden gem besides the service is the roof deck and the VIEWS. Breakfast was a wonderful start looking at the Blue Mosque and the Bosphorus and we made it a point to have cocktails at sunset every evening to just watch everything from the deck. The location is prime, just blocks from so much, but back to how wonderful the staff treated us and worked to make sure we were taken care of. Food is very good breakfast or dinner. Everything felt very safe always.
So much of how your stay is, depends on the people/staff at hotels and we feel they did an outstanding job and made us feel welcome and comfortable in their country.

Spent three nights here at start of our istanbul holiday in September. Comfortable room. Wonderful breakfast served on great roof terrace with amazing views. Staff excellent and very friendly. Dinner awful, although night views from roof terrace were amazing.

We chose Hotel Nena (because of its reviews) to stay during August 2013, booking two rooms for a family of six (with grandparents, one disabled). Being our first visit to Istanbul we were wary - but there was no need. The hotel management and friendly staff were excellent, taking care of our every need, from our pick up at the airport to drop off at the end.

Rooms were a bit small, but clean. There was a good choice at breakfast, including vegetarian options, and special soya milk for this lactose intolerant reviewer. The balcony views were superb in the morning.

The location was great for getting to the main attractions, including the Blue Mosque and the Market, and there was a good choice of eating and shopping places around the hotel. Some lunches comprised hot corn on the cob off the street pedlars (cheap at T£1!), which the hotel kindly let us have in the garden lounge area.

I would definitely recommend this hotel for any first time visitor.

Room Tip: Ask for sea facing rooms, just for the better view!
