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...

We recently stayed at this hotel on our visit to Turke and enjoyed every minute of it. It is ideally located just two short blocks from the public Tram, and the Grand Bazaar.

This hotel is ideally located within comfortable walking distance of many of the tourist spots. The pool and sun terrace on the top floor are lovely and have great views of the sea and Blue Mosque.

This is a pleasant hotel, staff very helpful and ever willing. Great location too and accessible to all attractions. The hotel is a short walk downhill to the restaurants at Kumkapi, and 5 minutes from the tramway and Grand Bazaar. The only downside is that the wi-fi system was a disappointment with a weak and erratic signal. This should be...

Reviewed 26 April 2010

Our stay with the hotel was extended due to the closure of European air space. During the extended stay, the staff of the hotel were extremely helpful and were able to assist us with rebooking flights and extending our stay. This made the delays much easier to deal with than would otherwise have been the case.
