“A small and friendly hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2009

Hotel is very conveniently located not far from the main tram line and within short walking distance from Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar.

Breakfest area very comfortable with a good view and good range of choices.

Staff very friendly and helpful.

Bed clean and comfortable.

Reasonable rate and good discount for a basic room which is small but sufficient. Found the free transport from airport to hotel very efficient.

For light sleepers, might notice some traffic noise as it is about 70 metres into a side stree from the busy road. Ask for a quiet room if there is one. For most people, it should not be a problem.

  • Liked — friendly staff
  • Disliked — some (not serious) cigarette smoke through the vent system into the room

Hotel Nena was a nice little hotel in heart of Istanbul old town. This was out first time to Istanbul so we came into it a little blind, but we fell on our feet with this hotel. If you are only in Istanbul for a couple of days I would recommend this hotel as its location allows you to walk to all the main attractions and the trendy shops over the Galta bridge.

Things I liked about the hotels are
-Location
-Price
-Complimentary breakfast
-Friendly staff
-View from the top floor

Things that I think could be improved
-Noise level
-Temperature control (hotel was very hot)
-Rooms are adequate but a little small and ours didn't have a great view

For the price this is a very good place to stay.

The hotel is in a great location, beside a tram line, and 5 mins walk from the Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food is very good, the rooms are a good size. They had a free transfer to and airport, which was very helpful. Lovely place, no complaints.

Pro´s:
1. Very good locatıon
2. Staff ıs more than polıte
3. Excellent vıew form the terrace restaurant

Con´s:
1. Rooms at the 4th floor very noısy because the elevator stops at 4th floor and everybody has to walk the staırs to go to the restaurant
2. The aırcondıtıon only gave warm aır. As the hotel was already quıte warm there was no possıbılıty to cool the room thus we had sleepıng problems
3. Wet area could be cleaner

We stayed in Nena hotel for 7 nights. The hotel was so nice, clean and well organized. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast room was amazing, nice view and excellent food.
The location is the best, very close to the historical places of Istanbul, and just in front of the metro station.
If I will visit Istanbul again, I will stay in Nena for sure.

This is a fabulous hotel at a great price. The staff are fantastic, they really mean 'if you are happy - we are happy". Decent buffet breakfast with good coffee and a terrific view over the Blue Mosque. The 'sea bass' I had for dinner was excellent. My room had everything but a kettle which would be the only thing I would of liked as I like a tea in the evening. Clean and comfortable. The staff are happy to make tea or coffee after spending a long day out. There is a computer in the lounge and free internet so I was able to catch up on the Canadian News but I was unable to access my yahoo e-mail, same problem in Poland so it wasn't the computer.

We recently stayed at the Nena for 7 nights at the end of November. I booked the hotel on their own website and received two discounts...one for booking early and another for paying cash. The value was outstanding as the booking also included airport transfers (to and from) and a fantastic breakfast every morning. The rooms were a little small, but typical for a European room. Everything was very clean and well taken care of. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I cannot say enough great things about the breakfast. The food and selection was wonderful...a great start to our day. We also received a 50% off coupon for dinner at the hotel and we used it on a rainy night. The dinner was also excellent. The hotel location was perfect...close to everything. The lobby and garden areas were very relaxing. We sat every night after a long day of sightseeing and had Raki in the (enclosed) garden area. The only negative (and it is very slight) is that the wireless internet did not work in our room and we had to use the wireless in the lobby. Not a big deal! (They also have a computer that guests can use with free internet access.) I highly recommend.

  • Liked — The breakfast and the location.
  • Disliked — The lack of internet in the room.
