“Not bad, good value”
Reviewed 31 August 2010

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.

My room was very small but very clean, the bathrooms are particularly microscopic but clean. closet is sufficient for solo travelers. Breakfast have not a spreed variety but restaurant view to see is very peaceful. You can hear everything in your room from your neighbour's toilet!,
Staff's behaviour can cover every gaps.

Good location in Kumkapi district.Hotel looking like a bit old and dirty but inside and in the rooms all is Ok.On reception many people smoking cigarets.
Liza has restaurant on last level, but I not recomend this place.
It's expensive place with poor standart.
My opinion:Stay in Liza, but not eat in hotel restaurant,
Few meters from Hotel You can find small restaurant with delicious lamb meat balls.Prices are really cheap.
Hotel Liza are good value for money.
Maby view from window is not so nice ,but for this price i recomend for budget travelers,

It is very small, the bathrooms are particularly tiny and one very small closet. Breakfast is not a large spread but very fresh bread and great olives, the view is lovely too. You can hear everything in your room, if this is going to bother you, i would suggest that you pick an alternative; we were not too bothered as our main aim was to spend time in the city, not the hotel room. Service was not fantastic but generally pleasant. The hotel is clean. it is not 'very' close to a tram stop, its about a 12 minute walk, uphill but manageble. As a budget hotel it is recommended.

Reviewed 17 November 2007

The Grand Liza has very nice rooms for the money and the staff is more
than friendly. HOWEVER, if getting a proper sleep is a priority, don't
go here. The walls between the rooms are paper thin and there is always a tv blaring throughout the night or sudden bangs that jar one out of a deep sleep. Breakfast is adequate.

  • Liked — The rooms were nice consdiering the price.
  • Disliked — The neverending noise in the night.
