Büyük Londra Oteli is in a desperate condition. the internet mostly doesnt work. lightning only by incidence. most rooms are quite dirty, the carpets torn. for breakfast you sit in an ugly, dark cellar-room, drinking bad coffee. nevertheless a love-affair connects me with this place. not only, because of the admirable staff of the hotel, which serves you in never-ending...

We stayed here for the last weekend. It was a good experience. Except its bathroom was too small, the room, location and personel were good. It was very close to İstikal avenue. Also metro station was close to the hotel.

I love this hotel and have stayed twice. This time we had a double room with a balcony on the 4th floor for Euro 50 each. At about £39 each this might seem expensive but given the view, history and location, I was more than happy with it. Regardless of which room you have you seem to have a view... More

Breakfast wasn't bad but could be better. Room cleaning really needs to improve, I found mold on the barhroom and under the bed. Personal at the lobby and bar is very nice and willing to help at all times.

The hotel is superb: The building is beautiful and charming. A real architectural gem. We stayed in a beautiful room (301) with a great view. The location is great location: Just a couple of minutes from the Istiklal avenue.

We loved this place - it's like stepping back in time to Istanbul in the 1930s. Gorgeous vintage decor, wonderfully kind and helpful staff, and a great location. Located 50 yards from Istiklal Avenue - a great pedestrian avenue that takes you to restaurants, nightclubs, bookshops, coffeeshops...don't miss this place. Also, don't expect something shiny and modern - it's all... More

I have discovered this nice old gem of a Hotel on a visit about 20 years ago and was fascinated about the style of this Hotel. Once you step in, you also step back about 100 years in time, you feel set back in the time of early 1900's. Original decoration and furniture at the lobby, bar, reception etc. You... More

We stayed three nights, and love this hotel. Staff excellent. Atmosphere is relaxing and the decor has been kept authentic. No complaints at all. Location perfect, easy walking to tunnel. Will stay there next time in Istanbul.

Leon Trotsky stayed at this grand old hotel, and Papa Hemingway drank in the bar when he was a young war correspondent. The historic bar at the nearby Pera Palas has sadly been ruined by an unsympathetic renovation – which leaves the Buyuk Londra’s memorabilia-and-caged-parrot-filled bar as the last place to get a taste of 1920s Constantinople described in the...

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
