Nice hotel but really 3 - 31/2 stars rather than 4 star. Basic clean rooms Fine for a one night stay but wouldn't want to stay here much longer than that. Thin walls also. Can quite clearly hear conversations being held in the next room. Restaurant and Bar upstairs are very good with amazing views.

I stayed in this hotel for only 4 days and had nothing to complain about. Good food, clean and comfortable rooms. What's more, there's a nice small Italian restaurant upstairs with great cousin, interior and view of the Bosphorus.

My family and I chose this hotel for our Easter visit to Istanbul. We booked a triple room and we could not have been more pleased with the size of the room. It had views over the Bosphorus, a small living room which helped us feel very comfortable moving around in the room and a good sized bathroom. The sheets... More

After completing our circuit of Turkey, our Pacha Tour returned us to this hotel. It was an improvement to the Blackbird. Furnishings were new and shower drains wonderfully. It was near a mosque but for some reason, no prayer calls came from there. The closest tram is Laleli-Universite and was a 10 minute walk to the Grand Bazaar. The neighborhood... More

This is definitely not a location for first time historical/cultural tourist. Mesihpaca is a virtually All-Russian environment and is not reflective of Istanbul. The street is totally lined with Russian speaking clothing shops and deserted on weekends, making it rather unsafe for a female tourist to walk come night. Grand Bazaar is 900m away; while the rest of the historical... More

Staying in Fener & Balat

Neighbourhood Profile
Fener & Balat
This sleepy and rather socially conservative area of Istanbul hosts a small but thriving Jewish community, the patriarchate of the Eastern Orthodox Church, and some of the most beautiful churches and Christian art in the world. Much of what’s most interesting to witness in Fener and Balat sits between the surviving ancient city walls of Constantinople and the serene shores of the Golden Horn. Despite the many splendid sights, historic attractions, stunning vistas, and warm Turkish welcome, the area remains largely unperturbed by the tourist trade that characterizes the atmosphere in nearby Sultanahmet and around the Grand Bazaar. Travelers that like to explore off the beaten track will reap big rewards for making the effort to visit this low-key part of town.
