Contemporary hotel caters to business and leisure travelersContemporary hotel caters to business and leisure travelers
Travelers who prefer contemporary accommodations will feel at home at the Best Western The President. Despite being Istanbul’s Old Town the hotel’s decor is atypical of the area. The rooms are not loaded with Ottoman patterns. Many of the Best Western’s rooms feature light wooden furniture and solid-colored textiles. But the hotel celebrates its location at the outdoor Terrace Restaurant -- with views of the Marmara Sea and Old Town -- and Ocakbasi Grill, which has Ottoman decor and serves some Turkish dishes.
Highlights
  • Contemporary furniture and color palette
  • Complimentary wireless Internet access in rooms and public areas
  • Wellness center features include a fitness center, pool, Jacuzzi, and steam room
  • Caters to needs of business travelers
Rooms
Best Western The President’s rooms and suites feature contemporary decor and full amenities. Some rooms have views of the Marmara Sea. All guest rooms come stocked with a free bottle of water. Other room amenities include bathtubs, work desks, blackout drapes, 24-hour room service, and cable or satellite television with European channels. Some connected rooms are available.
Features
Other amenities include The English Pub, an antique-filled bar and nightclub, The President Café, which serves pastries and lighter fare, and Orient House, where guests enjoy traditional folk singing and belly dancing.

The indoor pool is open year-round. The pool area also features a sundeck terrace and a pool bar. After a busy workday or touring the city, guests can also relax in the Jacuzzi or steam room.

An excellent 4 star hotel

THE PRESIDENT HOTEL - is a 4 star hotel in the Best Western hotel chain - ideally located in the center of historic old Istanbul -200 yards from the Grand Bazaar, 3/4 of a mile from Topkapi, the sultans palace, The Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The President, is impeccably maintained to the highest standards, amenities include everything from a beautiful swimming pool to a roof top restaurant serving delicious meals in a setting that overlooks the Golden Horn and the Bosphorus. The complementary breakfast ranked with the best I have had at any hotel in the world. The staff of this 4 star hotel are 5 star employees - totally professional, immaculate in their dress and manner, they spoke excellent English, anticipated our every need and truly treated us as honored guests. They arranged for everything from complementary shuttles to and from the airport to multiple tours within the city. Every request is addressed immediately, quietly and professionally. The day before our departure I asked if there were facilities I could use to obtain boarding passes for our trip home - In less than 5 minutes I was presented with the passes - they are truly a great team.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

A three minute walk from this hotel will put you into the Grand Bazaar - be prepared to bargain and there are deals to be had - you will be able to find something that will fit in a suitcase for the trip home.

Worth its four stars

Situated close to the Grand Bazaar and the Beyazit tram stop (giving easy access to the main tourist sites) this hotel is on the edge of Istanbul's vibrant fashion district. A comfortable, well-equipped room (a bit short of drawer space) with full bathroom, a good breakfast and free wi-fi all helped us to enjoy our stay. An impressive roof terrace with an indoor swimming pool and views to the sea added to the attractions. The housekeeping was a bit erratic (bathrobes appeared on day 4!) and the 6th floor breakfast room is let for functions (especially at weekends), which can mean that the thump, thump from the music can reach upper floor rooms.

Look around the streets near the hotel for fashion bargains (bags, belts, shoes, clothing, leather...). Some of the shops are wholesale only but many are not. Cheaper than in the Grand Bazaar!

Great location for Istanbul tourist visit

Hotel location is perfect in the old part of Istanbul. Grand Bazaar, Mosques , waterfront all within easy walking distance. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was good, and the top floor rooftop restaurant gives a fantastic 360 degree panoramic view. The only negatives are that (for us) the mattresses were too firm and that the sound insulation between hotel rooms could be better. Bangs, thuds or sounds of people could be heard - though unclear where from!

Family get together

Hotel had everything we needed. Staff very pleasant and spoke English. Rooftop restaurant great view of water and city. Food very good. Had a fish special that was excellent. Also in walking distance to many landmarks and points of interest. Lobby floor being redone but did not interfere with entering or leaving building.

Great Location

This hotel is great. I had a very nice room, clean and not a bad size. The hotel staff was friendly. The location was walking distance to the big bazaar, the Blue mosque. I felt safe walking the streets. Wonderful trip

Good one

Best point about this hotel is its location but rooms are very small. If small rooms are OK with you then its a nice place to stay. Its in the middle f the city. near the tram, blue mosque, hagia sofia, grand bazaar (all walking). Lots of foot shops. My stay was good. Staff english speaking and very helpful.
