We stayed three nights at the Venera, in order to see the city, on our way back from Antalya. The taxi driver from the airport took a long time to find the hotel. I recommend that future guests take the map or hotel phone number...More
The hotel is quite nice. We did appreciate that a room for 3 people actually had three proper beds in it although the mattresses was of very poor quality you could feel every spring, other than that clean and nicly decorated, loved the bathroom! Breakfast...More

Nice hotel but really 3 - 31/2 stars rather than 4 star.
Basic clean rooms

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.
