Reviewed 19 August 2014

The hotel is central to the old town near the Blue Mosque. Breakfast buffet is fresh and nicely presented. Roof terrace with plunge pool is welcome relaxation after a morning of sight seeing. Only criticism was the music was too loud even two student daughters thought so!!! It would be nice to be able to read or listen to own music without the loud music played by the hotel invading to much. Staff were very helpful and assisted with a few trips. Rooms were clean, relatively modern and comfy. Not hugely spacious but ok. Gym was ok but you cannot wear pumps or plimsoles it has to be trainers. All in all good value for money.

I stayed 6 nights at the Grand Washington Hotel.

The positives truly outweigh the negatives. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The breakfast buffet provided had a wide variety and was tasty...plus the view from the roof top is simply stunning, especially at sunset. I had dinner buffet for 2 nights which was also delicious.

The room we stayed in was very neat, clean and tidy. A good choice of beverages were available in the minibar. The only negative is that I felt the room was small.

The location is great!! Very close to the Aksaray metro station which you can take straight to the Sultanahmet area....or if you are fit and healthy, it is about a 20 minute walk away.

Overall I loved my stay. Thanks to TripAdvisor for helping me to fond this gem of a hotel. I really enjoyed my holiday in Istanbul.

Ups-Excellent service, great location (close to tram stops) , quiet room, great breakfast selection and the view from the terrace was just amazing.
Downs - poor room lighting, small room, poor wi fi connection.
Overall I would stay here again.

Stayed at the hotel for seven nights and was delighted overall. The location was brilliant and the pool though a bit small was great. The comfortable sun beds were great for relaxing on after a day of sightseeing and shopping. The staff were great and the room was comfortable with the room being cleaned and towels changed every day. Breakfast was good and we had dinner two of the nights at the hotel and were very happy with it. there is a lovely section of the restaurant outside with great views. All in all we could not fault this hotel or staff and had a great time.

We stayed at the hotel for 10 days and couldn't have had a better experience. The room was a good size and clean, the location was within walking distance (about 20 mins) of the main sites.

The service was excellent, especially the staff on reception who were always friendly and willing to help.

Our local travel agent came across this hotel after we gave up looking for somewhere on various websites. We spent a long time on Tripadvisor (and other similar sites) reading the reviews before deciding to book it for 4 nights at the end of May.

In our opinion, the "excellent" and "very good" reviews are much closer to the truth than the "poor" or "Terrible" reviews. I can only assume that some of those latter reviewers were either extremely fussy, unreasonable or had difficulties we did not encounter.

We had 2 connecting rooms, one for us, the other for the children. The rooms were at the end of a corridor and were made into one by a lockable sliding door which closed off the corridor. It worked really well for us and I would recommend it to other families. Our rooms were 1414 and 1415 on the 4th floor, although there might be similar set-ups on other floors.

the hotel staff we had dealings with were all fine - polite, friendly, helpful, spoke enough English (we didn't know any Turkish) and pleasant to deal with. Particular thanks to Azra in the restaurant. She was on duty for most of our breakfasts and on the 2 occasions we had dinner at the hotel - always helpful, always smiling.

Had an opportunity to stay in this hotel. Terrible insulation between rooms (could clearly hear TV from next room). Very small rooms, very unfriendly barman on 7th floor. Slow Web connection in a room.
The hotel is a way overpriced. Although breakfast was good.
