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.

A very nice hotel, well located, three blocks away from the road where you can catch the tram going to the main touristic area. The room was nice and clean and we could enjoy a continental breakfast every day. The only concern is the neighbourhood after 9:30 pm as all the shops around are closed and not many people is...

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.

Set in a quiet area; if arriving by coach there is a short walk from the main road. Pleasant hotel to use as a base to explore this amazing city. Friendly and helpful staff. Rooms clean. Food in the restaurant was ok, but there are several places nearby to eat as an alternative.

Although the road infront of the hotel is not very busy, you can hear everything in your room that happens outside. We were staying on the second floor. The intercontinantal breakfast was nice but not very...

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.
