Great location, great staff.

3 of us stayed 8 nights and had a very positive experience. Location in the Sultanahmet area is great, all major tourist sites nearby, public transportation convenient. Staff could not have been better.

Great hotel!

What a great hotel! It was what you expect from a European hotel. The location was amazing, off the beaten path but close to many major sight seeing spots. The service was outstanding, the view from breakfast was amazing and most importantly the room was very clean. When I return to Istanbul I will be staying at this hotel again.

Great Bazaar right down the street with amazing restaurants. Every price is negotiable, do not pay full price for anything when walking into the shops.

Near blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia

Generally excellent hotel in a great central location with brilliant views from the dining room and the roof terrace. Unfortunately the roof terrace was undergoing a refit whilst we were there so the planned roof top lounging could not happen, and our room was low down with no balcony so we could't lounge their either. regardless, assuming the roof terrace refit is complete, i would definately recommend this hotel.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Seafood lovers: the place to go is the restuarants below or around the bridge at the mouth of the Golden Horn. But beware of the prices, since most fish are priced by kilo and I had to ask and ask again what exactly i would be paying. Results were generally worth it.

Very good

We had a great time in this hotel. The service was great, the breakfast was fresh and more than enough (refilled continuously), the room was small but the beds were comfortable. The Legend Hotel is situated in the middle of all the highlights of Istanbul. The staff is very willing to help you out with advice and excursions. If you don't expect the Hilton, this is your hotel. You get great value for the price. Warmly recommended.

The staff is EXCELLANT

While the wall paper is peeling around the bottom of the walls, the rooms (I stayed in 2) were always clean and nicely appointed. The location was great - I could walk to all most everything or take the tram to other locations. Only a few blocks from Starbucks, McDonalds, other restaurants and shopping. There is also a small grocery store right across the street. I can't say enough about the excellant staff - especially Hakan, the day desk clerk. The staff speaks English and they were extremely helpful to a single woman traveling alone.
