Fantastic Istanbul experience

Fantastic hotel with very good value for the money standard. Very convenient location with a very short walk to the Grand Bazar and the Blue Mosque. Very friendly and helpful staff ready to go an extra mile to accommodate clients needs. I can definitely recommend this hotel to my friends as staying there was very enjoyable.

Excellent Location and Service

There are so many hotels in Istanbul to choose from but I wanted something which was in the heart of activity and close to the tram. I walked about the areas in Istanbul and many hotels are on very steep cobblestone streets. Barcelo Satay is perfect if you are seeing the main sites. Restaurants are abundant and easily driven to via a cab. The room was very clean, modern and tastefully appointed. The front desk staff is attentive and friendly, the Haman a nice respite and many International guests were returning for their vacation visit. Definitely a good experience and a 4 star hotel with reasonable rates.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Barcelo is directly across from the Grand Bazaar which is immense and can get overwhelming. There are numerous places along the street to find the same items at the same or slightly higher prices. Silver jewelry is more reasonable in the Bazaar.
