“The hotel has bad attitude”
Reviewed 9 October 2011

The room is just big enough for 2 and a bag. The roof restaurant super the brekkie is usual. Lift carries two person and bag. Value OK but it has bad attitude. Toilet ran for 3 days and we had no linen on one bed.

Ok, so first of all, let's talk about its location! 10 minutos walking distance from the metro station, in the evening the street can be a "little frightening" nevertheless I've never felt afraid of anything...!
About the room, the room they gave us (we were 3), lets just say: we had two choices: us or the bags! The room was little and not "beautiful" but for the purpose and price it was not that bad.
The most negative thing for me was the breakfast, it is located at the top of the building (thumbs up for this) but the quality is very poor... and the service even worse!

I had booked reservation for 3 nights for this hotel with tobook.com . We reached the hotel on 4th. May morning . The manager at desk made us wait for 3 hours and then said no rooms are available . He said we have no reservation though we showed him the reservation documents . He suggested we talk to tobook.com as hotel had no liability for this booking. We had to go out in the rain to find another accommodation. A very bad experience

Bearing in mind we were staying in Istanbul in August, we thought this hotel was good value at 55 euros for a triple room with breakfast. The location in Kumpkapi is good as it's off the main tourist drag in Sultanahmet and near some good fish restaurants. The bedrooms are small, but we were only there to sleep so not a problem. The bathroom was small but clean and serviceable, good shower. Breakfast on the roof terrace was lovely, though air conditioning unit completely inadequate so advise going up for breakfast before it gets hot outside if visiting in summer. Lovely views from breakfast terrace. Breakfast was ok, average Turkish breakfast, though eggs were always hardboiled and black so we avoided. Staff was OK but not particularly friendly. Would return if there was a particularly good room rate.

Located very close to nearly all major attractions, grand liza hotel is a good choice for money payed.

The only thing that bugged me was the breakfast which is the same every day, and not all variate, but then 8 learned that it's a traditional dish.

Good location, a 10 minute stroll up the hill to the grand bazaar. Rooftop breakfast, and a separate bar and lounge area. The hotel itself is a bit ramshackle, but that's Istanbul, and sort of adds to its charm. Serviceable, comfortable rooms, but three is a crowd in the annoying single lift that services the hotel. Quite good for mid market tourists, but not so suitable for business travelers.
