It was the first time we have been to Istanbul and didn’t know what to expect in the way of accommodation, so we chose the Eurostars hotel for the simple reason that we have used the chain before and were quite satisfied. Now having visited the city, I know we could have chosen almost any hotel and not have been disappointed. Most of the hotels we saw from the outside would have satisfied our needs.
Having said that, our stay the Eurostars was most enjoyable. The service from the reception staff was first rate and, when we first arrived, we were given a choice of three rooms and were given a guided tour to see them. The hotel entrance is in a small side street, away from the hustle and bustle of the main drag. It is also so convenient for the harbor, and all the tourist hotspots. The bazaars are maybe 15 minutes walk away at most and it takes 15 or 20 minutes on foot to get to the main tourist attraction – the Blue Mosque.
The rooms were on the small side but we were only staying for 4 nights and it was no problem. They were very well appointed and we were most impressed with a TV hidden behind a smoked glass mirrored wall – very 21st century.
The breakfast couldn’t be faulted. There was an extensive selection including hot food. All in all, I’d mark the hotel very highly and it was reasonable value for money. I’d recommend it.
If I went again to Istanbul, which I fully intend to do, I’d seriously consider staying again at the Eurostars. However, now that I’ve seen the old city, I wouldn’t be apprehensive about choosing another hotel.
