Good location

Good central location, nothing special, normal hotel as expected. Good public transport connections (tram, ferries). Walking distance to Aya Sofya, Blue Mosque (Sultanahmet Camii), Topkapi Palace, Galata Bridge.

Gute Lage, ungenügende Qualität

Wackelstecker, Tresor geht, auch nach Reklamation, nicht, Personal vor allem mit sich selbst beschäftigt, Flughafentaxi kommt 30 Minuten zu spät.

Prima hotel

Hotel ligt op een uitstekende locatie in het oude gedeelte van de stad. Het personeel is erg aardig. Ondanks dat we de eerste nacht in een ander Best Western hotel werden ondergebracht waren we tevreden over ons verblijf.

Sehr empfehlenswertes Hotel

Das Hotel befindet sich in ausgezeichneter Lage. Die Zimmer sind sehr sauber und das Personal hilfsbereit und freundlich. Am 3. Tag funktionierte das Internet nicht. Wir empfehlen das Hotel vorbehaltlos.

kaupunkiloma

Hyvä sijainti lähellä kaupungin tärkeimpiä nähtävyyksiä. Viihtyisä, pieni hotelli. Kaunista, koristeellista, vanhan rakennuksen tunnelma.Vastaanottovirkailija kertoi heti meille 3 pv:n aikana tärkeät asiat. Miten minnekin päästään ym. Loistovalinta Ebookersin sivuilta!

Hyvä lomakohde

Hotellin sijainti erinomainen. Kävellen pääsi useisiin kohteisiin. Ratikka kulki hotellin edestä, jolla pääsi kaukaisempiin kohteisiin. Siisti hotelli ja mukava huone. Kylpyhuone erityisen siisti ja moderni. Kaikki tarvittava toimi. Nettiyhteys toimi hieman katkeillen. Hotellista pystyi ostamaan meriristeilyjä ym muita matkoja. Ystävällinen henkilökunta.

Kurztrip

Da ich schon unzählige male in Istanbul war wusste ich in welcher Gegend ich das Hotel buchen musste. Das Hotel liegt in sehr zentraler Lage alle Sehenswürdigkeiten sind gut zu Fuss erreichbar. Hotelangestellte sind sehr nett und Hilfsbereit gerne buchen wir das Hotel bei einem nächsten Besuch wieder. Gruss
