“nice hotel but too many rules”
Reviewed 19 July 2011

stayed here for daughters 18th birthday, lovely modern hotel but a fair distance from the sights, breakfast fab even for veggies, we had problems wiv pool as you must buy swim hat a 10 lira each and dont bother with the gym unless you have proper clothes with you! be careful of room service as some staff are perverts,we found food in restaurant next door cheap and great, try it!

The hotel was clean. Perfect location to go off and explore!! Next to the tramline so dead easy to get about. DO NOT USE TAXIS!!!! its dead easy to get to the airport by metro. People are lovely just 100%.

Aircon isnt great but we did complain as it wasnt that bad... Would go back next week if I could!!!!!!

Ps DONT GO TO RESTURANT NEXT TO HOTEL they rip you off hotel as no prices on the menu- hotel is same price and much better food. Big thanks to the guys on reception and Mahmut the waiter

I've been a guest at the Grand S Hotel (Istanbul, Turkey) from 14/05/2011 to 15/05/2011 and it had been a wonderful experience. The room is clean, cozy and comfortable. The location of the hotel was excellent as it is near the airport and just 10 minutes drive away from the Taksim Square. The staff there were warm and helpful, and special thanks to Yasin Daş for giving me directions to and from Taksim Square. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to Turkey.

My self and my husband went for a 4 day leisure trip to Istanbul. The hotel is very modern and has some good facilities, such as heated pool, gym and Turkish bath.
Breakfast was very good with plenty of choice. The staff are friendly and speak English well.
The only drawback, i would say, is the location. It is not that close to the city centre of 'Sultanahmet', where all the main attractions are (Blue Mosque etc). I felt that the staff did try and push taxis and tour buses on us whenever we asked them for directions to a certain place. However we found it quite easy to get about by metro and tram and much cheaper than a taxi. The hotel is near 'Otogar' metro stn and all travel in Istanbul seems to cost 1.75 TL per person one way.You have to buy a token or 'jeton' from the station. Change at 'Aksaray' get the tram to 'Sultanahmet', about a 20 min to 1/2 hr trip. The hotel staff quoted 25 to 30 TL for a taxi to the same place.

Room Tip: Rooms are comfortable, v.good breakfast.

I qualify this hotel with a high level of service and hospitality. The room was very clean and cozy. Location is comfortable for guests who come by car, but for other guests metro or bus stations are situated very close. I liked very much the kind attitude of personal, the cleanness of room, very delicious breakfast. It is good area for shopping (Forum Istanbul, Ikea, Praktiker, Saturn).
