Reviewed 13 April 2014

The location of the hotel is fantastic and is within a 10 minute walk of Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and the Grand Bazaar. Sultanahmet Tram stop is 100m away and it extremely easy to get to the hotel from the airport by taking the M1 and then the T1.

The views from the hotel are brilliant and it was a pleasure to have breakfast each morning with clear sight of the blue mosque and the Bosphorous in the background. The staff were extremely helpful and hospitable, answering any questions we had about the local area and events.

We were upgraded on our last night to receive a room with a balcony on the fourth floor and I would highly recommend booking one of these rooms as the view was fantastic, it was a joy to wake up and fall asleep with the Blue mosque in the background and there was also more room in this room too.

Overall an extremely pleasant stay in Istanbul which was perfectly complimented by our perfect stay at Nena Hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms with the balconies on the fourth floor provide amazing views of the Blue Mosque.

Hotel Nena was love at first sight. We found it on a quiet side street close to the historic attractions that make Istanbul so lovely. Gracious in a classic Turkish art deck manner, superbly modernized without losing its sense of place. With incredible views of the Blue Mosque, a friendly and professional staff, Hotel Mena is an affordable gem of an elegant home in the heart of a great city.

Room Tip: Street-facing rooms with balconies combine great view with spacious interiors.

The location is excellent, walking distance to all main attraction sites in Sultanahmet area Blue Mosque , Agia Sophia, and also to grand Bazaard. The tramway is only few steps away from the hotel which is very convenient.
Staff was very helpful and friendly. When we arrived hotel was fully booked for the first night and we had to stay at an interior room which was very small and we do not recommend it. The bathroom had a combination of bath/shower which was too high to step over you could have a terrible fall.
For the other two nights the manager offered us an upgrade to a Deluxe room with view of the view of the Bosporus, Blue Mosque, and Topkapi Palace. Room as very spacious we loved it.
Breakfast room is located at the top roof garden with amazing view of the historical center of Istanbul.
We have enjoyed our stay at the Nena hotel. And we will recommend to all our friends that will visit Istanbul and we hope that we will be back soon.

We stayed at Nena for five nights and couldn't have asked for any more. It was a wonderfully comfortable stay and we even had our room upgraded to the 'penthouse' for the final night - what a treat, what a view! The staff went out of their way to be hospitable, providing useful information and complimentary turkish tea. Comfortable rooms with lovely decor and a stunning view of both the Blue Mosque & the Hagia Sofia. It's great to be able to seethe iconic buildings throughout the day and into the evening at different lights. Nena is in a great location, right next to the tram and a walk away from most guidebook attractions. Breakfast had a delicious range; cooked breakfast to yoghurt and fruit. We were offered 30% off the restaurant menu and whilst didn't manage to eat there in the end, the menu looked great! Thanks so much for a perfect stay in a beautiful city!
