“Perfect location and cleanness ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2012

The hotel is perfectly situated in historic center of the city. The free breakfast is one of the best in the area involving both continental and Turkish dishes. i enjoyed free internet while having a perfect breakfast in the terrace of the hotel overlooking Bosphorus.

The rooms were spacious and clean. The room was very quite as it was overlooking to backyard garden. The people in the hotel were helpful, especially Muzzy's team. i will definetely stay there again.

After much research we chose the Nena for our visit to Istanbul. We should have paid more attention to the average and poor reviews. I feel the hotel is over-rated. Yes the location is excellent, but so is for many hotels in the area. The room we had was very very small, almost claustrophobic; so much so we did not look forward to returning to it every evening. We should have realised this when making the booking, and unfortunately there was no other room available. The AC did not work the first night, so it was an uncomfortable night, but this was resolved by the second night. Noise throughout the hotel can be heard clearly in the room, evenings, during the night and in the mornings. The breakfast was very average, not anything amazing as quoted in some reviews - we have travelled the world and stayed in an array of various hotels.

The location is the best thing going for this hotel, but then there are so many others nearby that it would not make sense to pay so much for the Nena. We saw Sura and Yasmak Sultan during our visit, and really regretted not choosing to stay there - they are in a different category to the Nena. The Nena is trying to be a luxury boutique hotel, or so it calls itself, but you do not feel that when staying in the so called double room (economy?) which is not even big enough for a single person! We struggled to find somewhere in the room to put our suitcase!

To summarise, great location, fine if you do not intend spending any time in your room, but if you do, choose elsewhere, or pay even more for a 'deluxe' room. An average experience, and that’s being generous. Disappointed.

Room Tip: Just don't stay in an economy double whatever you do! Better still, don't stay here at all.

Just got back from Instanbul staying in Hotel Nena. It was excellent and I would certainly stay there again if they had room as they are always full. Food was excellent and we were fortunate for some reason to occupy a de luxe room on our 2 separate visitis during our stay. The staff were very courteous and could not do enough for us. It was right in the middle of town and opposite a very good travel agency with whom we had booked various trips. We were close to the most important sights and all in all it was a wonderful experience. The manager of the hotel was very approachable. I want to take my husband back there in autumn.

Our stay at hotel Nena in April this year was delightful ! First of all this lovely hotel is ideally located in the center of Sultanahmet, which means that we only had to walk 5 minutes to reach Aya Sofya, Blue Mosquee and Topkapi Palace. Then, only 2 minutes to the tram stop, which is ideal and very fast to cross the Galata Bridge and reach the modern part of the city and Dolmabahce Palace among others. The hotel itself is really cute, has a nice colored façade and a welcoming lobby. The rooms also are very cosy, decorated with style and convenient. Breakfast was a pure moment of joy as we had it right on the sunny terrace of the hotel restaurant, which has a wonderful unobstructed view guaranteed on the Bosphorus, Aya Sofya, Topkapi, etc. And the last but not least, the hotel staff, the receptionists, cleaning ladies, waitresses, they were all charming and very competent. I cannot see any negative aspect to mention, we will never forget our stay in this hotel located in one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

We have stayed 4 nights in Nena which has the best location in Sultanahmet area. The staff welcomed us with cold beverages and inform us about istanbul. Rooms are pretty small but enough for city travelers. We loved terrace restaurant with excellent view. Thanks for all staff in Nena. I will definitely stay here again!!
