We stayed 9 nights at the President. It was perfect for us, a family of 5 with 3 teenagers. We had a double and a triple, negotiated a very reasonable price. The hotel is perfectly located, between the Grand bazaar and Kumkapi, the fish restaurant area. It is walking distance from Yenikapi ferry port for boats to Bursa (nice daytrip,... More

Our stay was for one week begining July 27, 2007. We booked this hotel based on the brochure photos, the star ratings and the prior reviews from previous guests. The hotel is definitely in a key location, within walking distance to the major attractions and cafes, which is where we ate breakfast. Firstly, I must commend the excellent concierge staff!...

This is a typical 4* hotel in Istanbul, but wiht a great location, only a few steps from the bazaar and a few minutes from the Blue Mosque. The location was the main reason to book this hotel, and we were very pleased. The rooms are standard, nothing special. The airco was working 70%, not full power, which we really... More

We have just returned from istanbul,The President Hotel. This is one of the finest hotels I have ever stayed in, and I highly recommend it. From the moment you check in, the staff is at your side making sure your stay is exceptional. I can’t say enough. If you find yourself in Istanbul, stay here, you will not be dissapointed.

This is a reasonable hotel that is reasonably well-located. Major sites are within a 15 minute walk. The hotel accomodations are not bad. So why such a negative review? Customer service is seriously lacking in this hotel. We booked our room via a travel agent. We ended up changing our itinerary and our travel agent called the hotel to delay... More
