We stayed 4 nights in early June, and rate it as one of our most successful city breaks. The hotel is a modern building located just off the main road and tram route in the old city, close to the Grand Bazaar, and 5 - 10 minutes walk from the main sites of interest. All the facilities one would expect...

The Best Western President is located in the city's oldest historic area, a few hundred meters from the wonderful Grand Bazaar and a short walk from nearly all of Istanbul's other must see sights. For a reasonable rate we got a very nice water view room, excellent beds, new bathroom, flat screen TV, safe, water view and delicious breakfast buffet...

I cannot praise the hotel and staff enough. My wife and I recently stayed there for 7 nights and the only downside was a noisy Turkish wedding party on the Saturday evening which stopped promptly at midnight. The hotel is perfectly placed for all the main tourist attractions which can be reached either on foot or by the excellent public...

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.
