This hotel is very centrally located in Sultanhamet. The hotel itself is very clean and aesthetically pleasing. Our room was small but in pristine condition. Lovely furniture and comfortable bedding. Very clean bathroom. Hotel staff was courteous. Decently priced for an expensive area. Would definitely stay again.

This little hotel had such good reviews that I was expecting more. The photos are beautiful, however not all the rooms look like that. Our room was perfectly adequate, & overlooked building next door. Aside from that, location is perfect in Sultanahmet and walking distance to all main attractions. It is also up high, so u don't have to climb up hill to do your sightseeing. Room clean, staff polite & helpful. Make sure you visit the Cisterna Basilica, most extraordinary sight but try to get there early morning or after 5pm to try & avoid the longest queues especially when cruise ships are in town. Have your breakfast on lovely rooftop terrace. Tram is meters away & very easy to use.

Rooftop-restaurant with great view on Blue Mosque. And an excellent staff, helpfull and hospitable.We would have loved to stay longer than was possible. The hotel-manager shipped my keys - which i forgot to take out of the safety-box - on his own expenses to my home adress!
We not only enjoyed breakfast on the rooftop restaurant, welcomed by Nena-host Nino, but also had there dinner once. We were the only dining guests, quite strange, considering the perfect meal and wonderful evening-view on sunset over Marmara-Sea. If we return to Istanbul, we will definitely book Nena Hotel.

Room Tip: be prepared that the cheapest rooms have no exterior view: the windows open to an air-shaft. But the...

Hotel Nena is a great place to stay. It is handy to everything, clean and perfectly tidy, it has lovely decor and extremely hospitable hosts. The generous variety of food offered for breakfast on the balcony with a fabulous view of The Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and the ship activity in the sea was a real highlight. We would also thoroughly recommend paying for the private tour guide that they booked on our behalf. We saw so much in just two days which we would have never seen if we were navigating our own way round.

We spent a total of five nights at the beginning and end of our Turkish tour. The hotel is in the heart of the Sultanhamet area and very near a tram stop for ease of getting about. The Nena was recommended by friends who stayed last year and we were not disappointed. The best thing about the hotel is the superb body of staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. They are without exception extremely welcoming and friendly. The upstairs restaurant has a superb view of the Sultanhamet mosque, the Aya Sofia and the Bosphorus. We didn't have dinner but the breakfast buffet is excellent in choice and quality. Our rooms were good, clean and beds comfortable. Our second room at the side of the hotel had a balcony at the back and the only criticism we had was that the patio furniture hadn't been cleaned for a while but otherwise our stay was faultless. A great base from which to explore fascinating Istanbul.

Perfect breakfast on the roof with fabulous view, perfect location, friendly stuff
and clean room.

I stayed here for three nights while I was in Honeymoon tour.
Location was perfect and the hotel so close from the sites, church and mosques.
Tran station and restaurants are so close as well.
I still recall how the roof view was beautiful in the morning.
Stuff was kind and friendly and even funny!
I would like to stay this hotel if I visit Istanbul again :)
