Legacy Ottoman Hotel
Ranked #272 of 1,163 Hotels in Istanbul
Reviewed 16 June 2014

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in May, 2014. The good news is that it is centrally located in the old city and perfectly situated to the Spice Market( a treat in itself), the trams and many different shops and places to eat. We found the hotel staff very friendly and accomodating. The first room we had was not good. It was so small that you could not get into the Wardrobe because it was right up againt the bed. The second room however we stayed in on the back end of our trip in was much larger and certainly more comfortable. I can't say too much for the food however. Breakfast is included but the selections are limited and the food doesn't compare to buffets in other hotels we stayed in Turkey. It wasn't just the limited seletion but the qaulity needed improvement. Our group had a farewell dinner at the hotel and I found my food bordering on ineatable. But, its a "free" breakfast and you get what you pay for; sometimes. All in all , if you want to great location, a decent room, a helpful staff, and your don't care about the food, then by all means book a room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the street on the 5th floor. It's not noisy and the rooms may be larger.

The location of the hotel is good and so is the breakfast. Perhaps these are the only comparative advantages the hotel has. The staff is generally kind, however overall service and hospitality are very poor.

When my colleague asked the reception for an iron, she was told there is only one iron in the hotel and it is with a hotel guest who is asleep. Hence, they told my colleague they could not do anything about the iron...

When we were checking out, we were asked to pay for the water we have never drank (there was an empty bottle of water in our room, but this water was brought by my colleague from the airport. So it looks like the hotel staff do not have a good account of the items in the mini-bar). Moreover, my colleague was asked to provide a written confirmation that the water was not from the mini-bar, but from the airport!

I recently went on a trip to Turkey and Greece, sponsored by gate1travel. The assigned hotel was the Legacy Ottoman in Istanbul. It was excellent. Very clean and well taken care of, and the location was terrific. The rooms were good size. The food was very good, and we really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Our room was facing the main street, but it had little traffic and the room was still very quiet.

A not more than 3 stars hotel at the price of 5! Huge rooms without facilities:no water, just if requested, no cofee machine, old and very used furniture, no shelves, no hangers. The staff was not well trained or not well intended. A guy was comming to my room and even I was just out of shower insisted to see if in that day I used something from minibar...When I asked for directions to see a city attaction they sent me directly to take a cab even the place was 5 minutes by walk...At the upperlevel bat even that we were the sole clients the drinks came after 30 minutes and they were something else than the ones that we requested.

Was very comfortable in the Legacy. The rooms were very clean, the staff accommodating and the buffet breakfast had numerous choices. The rooms and furnishings are a little dated, but in good condition. When we went to check in, our room was not ready, so the hotel stored our luggage and we went sightseeing. Upon returning, they had generously upgraded us to a King Suite that was huge. Loved the jetted tub. Enjoyed our stay there.

The Legacy Ottoman Hotel seams to consistently get bad reviews for some reason. It is an older hotel, but is kept in impeccable condition. The rooms are clean and modern and I found the common areas to be clean as well. The staff is very pleasant and attentive. The hotel itself is centrally located in the heart of old Istanbul and is within walking distance to many of the main attractions. There is public transportation within a short walk of the hotel for those who wish to venture out further from the old city.

We stayed for 5 nights at this beautiful hotel. We went with a few friends and all of us booked corner suites. The corner suites were decked out beautifully. Bathrooms were very clean and staff members were helpful and obliging. I would definitely stay here again and recommend the corner suites.
