Nice few days break

Would recommend Sun, Dec 6, 2015
Didn't know what to expect as had read a few reviews that weren't good, but was pleasantly surprised. For me the hotel is in a great location, as it is walkable to all the attraction, however it wouldn't be suited for anyone who has any sort of difficulty walking, as there are some pretty steep hills! Our room was comfortable and clean, and the restaurant and lounge areas are nice enough. I did not find one of the reception staff very helpful at all, a smile would help, but generally staff were pleasant and helpful. Overall, for a budget break to Istanbul I would recommend, and would go back.

Just plain.

Would not recommend Sun, Dec 30, 2012
Everything was just fine. Nothing extraordinary. No one went out of their way to help us. Nice enough, but nothing special. Tried to visit the health club during ordinary posted areas. They weren't open and didn't seem to be concerned that it was nearly an hour and half after posted hours. We were disappointed.


Try the point and eat restaurants. Everything was better than any of the regular restaurants we went to. Price and taste!!

Not the best option....

Would recommend Tue, May 25, 2010
We ended up in this hotel for one night, and would not recommend it. The room was extremely small and dark, with window facing an ugly wall. Breakfast looked ok, but the taste told immediately that most of the stuff on the table was not very fresh. I don't know what the price for this hotel usually is, but it is definitely not worth the stars!

Nice hotel

Would recommend Mon, Feb 25, 2008
Since I was only in Istanbul 1 night and I arrived late , I was not able to use any of the amenities available at the Grand Yavuz Hotel. The room, lobby and bar were very nice and clean. The check-in was very efficient. The room smelled a little smokey and since I am not a smoker I noticed it. Location was very good, close to attractions but quiet. Easily reached by the Metro. I would definitely recommend the Grand Yavuz Hotel as a good value for the price and I would stay there again in the future.

Time saver

The hotel was very close to the Metro and made it easily accesible from the airport at a low cost.
