This hotel is a great option if your on a tight budget. The service was excellent & rooms/bathrooms very clean. The location was fantastic & close to all touristy things. The only thing is its quite noisy outside, & cause I'm such a light sleeper, I struggled, even with ear plugs in. But after a day of sightseeing in this...

We visited Istanbul this weekend (4th-6th October 2013). I must say that we were very pleased with this hotel and what it has offered. It's location is in Kucuk pazar, Eminonu, in a tiny market street, where you can really experience real Turkish life and we felt safe at all times, even at night. It's location allows you to visit...

The location is perfect, between Sultanahmet and Galata bridge, we did not get any transport to visit all the interesting venues and go out during the night to restaurants or just walking. It was a not turistic area but so safe and confortable. The hotel seemed at the first glance old, but inside is new and very clean and the...

I definitely recommend this hotel! A list of awesome things about it: - Close to center (20-25 min walk to Sultanahmet or Galata Tower, 10 minutes to tram station) - It is not a typical tourist location, so you can get a good taste of what the Turkish life is - Right next to the hotel you have vendors with...

The location is perfect; all the mosques are on walking distance! It is situated in the historical part but not in the touristic part of it. It is a bit poor neighbourhood and I thought it was interesting to have the hotel there but I can imagine that not everyone would love it so be aware that it is not...

This hostel is in a very lively local neighbourhood where you can get a chance to feel real people's life in Istanbul (not in a tourist area), as well as getting cheap and tasty street food anytime (e.g. the street vendor right around the corner stays open late, until at least 1am). It's also within walking distance to many attractions...

If you are looking for a cheap and basic hotel to stay in Istanbul, I can definitely suggest this one. I stayed there two times and was satisfied with the service. My room was small but needed it as a place to leave my bags and to sleep for a few hours. Bed linens were clean, bathroom was clean as...

This Hotel isn’t in a tourist place, but in the city center and very close to the Galata Bridge, served with public transport; there aren’t shops for tourist and bar and restaurants are with Turkish price. The Hotel is very simple and basic; the Staff that doesn’t speak English is very kindly and hospitable. They will welcome you with a...

I can suggest this hotel for a low budget traveller ,the location is perfect in a typical turkish district in Sultanamet's zone near the ferry piers and near to the grand bazaar. The rooms are quiet small and the breakfast is poor but near the hotel there are few bars where you can eat everything from donuts to kebab ,.The...

Walking down the street to Karslloglu may make you a little weary but do not fear the area is fantastic for seeing a little of the 'local' side of Istanbul old city and we didn't feel unsafe once. It is extremely handy for all the sights and is close to the tram stations. The double room with bathroom is very...

Staying in Grand Bazaar

Neighbourhood Profile
Grand Bazaar
Tourists, hawkers, and locals come together at the Grand Bazaar to comb its labyrinthine passageways in search of a bargain – be it a pair of brand name jeans, a handcrafted silk rug, or a perfectly brewed cup of tea. Outside the vast bazaar, worn, narrow streets wind their way down from its lofty perch to the southern shore of the Golden Horn, where the evocatively aromatic Spice Bazaar beckons alongside the elegant New Mosque (opened in 1665). Nearby, the famed Galata Bridge offers pedestrian access to urban delights across the river in Istanbul’s more residential and contemporary neighbourhoods, while the must-see sights of Sultanahmet are but a leisurely stroll away.

“Double room was great”
DietCocaCola, 18 Jan 2014 | Read review
“There is no shower on the ground floor by reception, only on the upper floors”

“Choose a double room with a private bathroom on the second floor.”
sanjak529, 7 Oct 2013 | Read review
“Twin rooms with shared bathrooms are small but have all the space you need to sleep. Double rooms add a little bit more luxury if you want to come back and properly relax after a long day on your feet.”
madseaman, 9 May 2013 | Read review
“If you want a private bathroom make sure you book it that way!! Some people arrived and were surprised to see they had a shared bathroom. Also, probably better to request a room upstairs.”
