The location could be better, it was my first time going to Istanbul so I wasn't sure what area so book. There isn't much around when it comes to restaurants and things like that. It is however quite close to the Grand Bazaar, maybe 10-15 walk, which I enjoyed. The hotel itself is clean, polite staff and all right breakfast.... More

Not the best location for tourism in Istanbul, but very convenient for the ferry to Bursa (ten minutes by taxi to the terminal). A nice, clean hotel, very friendly and helpful staff. I had to leave early for the ferry so the hotel provided a 'breakfast box' - much appreciated.

The hotel was reasonable: Comfortable bed Good shower Average breakfast The view out of our window was a building site. The area was not so great for us, there didn't seem to be any restaurants / nightlife nearby. The attractions were a fair walk away. We ended up moving hotels after one night to stay closer to Taksim Square.

I have visited Istanbul on my business conference and stay at this cozy hotel. It is very modern offering key cards to breakfast and Turkish bath as well. The staff are very accommodating and the location is so close to most shopping areas and to Haji Sofia, grand bazar and many other attractions.

Situated in the old side but very calm location with tram access within 10 minutes. Staff is amazingly helpful and respectful. They loved our infant baby. Highly recommended for couples and small families. Grand bazaar is accessible by walk or tram and Hagia Sophia is by tram with 15 minutes ride.

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighbourhood Profile
Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighbourhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.
