We chose this hotel because of its prime location close to the Egyptian bazaar and eminonou district. The hotel lobby looks nice and classic but the rooms are old and dated (in need for refurbishment) some rooms even had big black spots on the wallpaper that looked like old leaks. The double room was very small and the cupboard was... More

The neighborhood is peaceful and safe. I would suggest staying in this area and stay... More

Easy walk to the bridge and to great restaurants. There are also some small shops and a great baclava and coffee place just down the street. So the location is ideal. And the hotel is lovely.

Nice hotel. It was clean. I did not like the area that it was located in and one of employees was unfriendly. Had a spa in the basement with a pool sauna and steam room. The hotel was somewhat empty but still very well maintained and staffed. Very elegant.

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.
