Many of the 'good' reviews for hotels in Istanbul are questionable but we had a fantastic experience when we stayed here with our two children (aged 2 and 5). The location is great walking distance to the major sites and actually very quiet at night. We stayed in the president suite (cheaper than two adjoining rooms) which had a great...

We stayed three nights in May 2010, en-route to a holiday in Cyprus. It`s a great location; 2 minutes walk from the "main road" , so quiet, but really central for the main tourist attractions, three tram stops away. Scrupulously clean, comfortable and well designed room. Of course the great plus, as always, was the helpful and friendly nature of...

The Best Western President Hotel was the venue for an international seminar I conducted on transmission system operations in July of 2008. The hotel staff was phenomenal in making all the necessary arrangements for both our accommodations and our meeting space. Their pricing was by far the best of the many hotels that I contacted in Istanbul as potential venues...

We moved to this hote from the Golden Horn. There was really no comparison: the President is a modern hotel, with good service, very pleasant public areas and (mostly) attentive staff. I would happily stay there again. It's very close to the Grand Bazaar and the Beyazit tram stop. We were considering this hotel for a conference of 50-100 delegates...
