First I was pleased to choose this hotel it was very clean and helpful team. We passed 5 nights there. An advise for the customers dont accept room 110 its noisy after 22 (anknowing engine of AC and low sounds of an night club) but the stuff tried to help us for changing the room. Great thanks and I wil advise all my freinds to choose this Hotel.

It was one of very few hotels which offered accomodation for 17 people at a reasonable price and it is the only positive thing about it.
It was the first problem in my travelling history when a hotel didn't reply to my emails sent prior to arrival. I tried to contact them by phone after no replies to emails, but they just suggested other email addresses from which I got no reply as well. We had rooms booked for 17 people from two different countries and on arrival there was quite a misunderstanding, so I had to listen to already known from previous feedbacks story about "your booking is lost", "the hotel is completely booked", "we can offer another hotel". Evantually misunderstanding was solved, but the next day we were asked to change two rooms for "better" ones. The better ones had AC broken, toilet flush broken and faced very noisy road. Not all the reception staff had at least basic level of English to be ready to answer the simplest questions. The breakfast was really bad. The butter probably died a couple of month ago, the coffee, tea and chocolate tasted like crap. So we ended up eating only bread, eggs and vegetables which can be hardly spoiled. The location is weird. Be ready to get offers to spend a night with a russian prostitute or get ripped in one of the local clubs.

Room Tip: Try to stay in a room which looks into inner yard. It is quite dirty but much quieter

A friend and I stayed at this hotel in May 2013 for 7 nights. The location is good, close to the Aksaray Tramway and close to the bustling coffee shops and other specialty shops. It was a 20 minute walk to the Blue Mosque and Sultanahmet area. The rooms were a bit small but we didnt spend much time in there as we were out exploring. The rooms were always cleaned in the morning and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast was basic but enough to keep us satisfied :) We relied alot on wifi in the room, which worked very well the first few days, but seemed to be erratic the last few days. The staff were friendly and very helpful. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. Thank you for a memorable stay :)

I stayed here with 2 friends this year and the music from the nightclub next door was ridiculously loud. We were on the 5th floor and requested a room change but all the "family" rooms are on one side of the hotel so though a little better, it was impossible to escape the sound. Given that there are positive reviews on the site, I am guessing there is no problem on the other side of the hotel but if you are travelling with more than one other person, absolutely no way would I recommend staying here. And just to add, the nightclub was not your typical open-to-everyone nightclub so it was not a case of "if you can't beat them, join them".

Every year we are attending EVTEKS home textile exhibition and staying here. The rooms at the back side of the hotel at 6 and 7th floors have better view. 3 minutes to Laleli Tramway, 10 minutes to Aksaray Metro, 5 minutes to Yenikapı. It is easy to go Blue Mosque. Breakfast is enough. Eggs can be hot but generally not. Rooms are clean. Wi-fi is OK, Rooms are not too big but enough for us. Generally parking space is available in the evening.

Room Tip: Back side 600-700 numbered rooms far from elevator.

The Grand Ant Hotel is situated in a very central location, withing walking distance from the Grand Bazaar, the Bosphorus ferries, restaurants, and many other places of interest for tourists.

Close to the Aksaray underground from the airport, it is also close to the tram route, all making it an ideal location for tourists.

We found the staff extremely helpful and friendly, any time of the day/night.
The Reception staff assisted with excellent day-trips and booked the best seats for a number of shows and functions. Room service and cleaning was prompt and thorough and all staff (from Reception to Cleaning and Catering) worked together as a team, making our stay very enjoyable and memorable.

We will definitely return to this hotel on a future trip!
