19th-century Ottoman house overlooking the Blue Mosque
The Hotel Legend Istanbul is a true part of Istanbul’s most historic section. The hotel is housed in a former Ottoman house that was built during the 19th century. Decor throughout the hotel is true to the building’s history. Many of the furnishings and patterns are similar to the ones that decorated old Ottoman houses. The house is in easy walking distance to many of Istanbul’s most famous landmarks. The Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and the Grand Bazaar are just minutes away. On-site amenities include a rooftop bar and restaurant.

Very misleading

This hotel must have hired the most talented photographer in the world for their website. While the location is decent, this hotel is very over-priced and not at all worth the money. The rooms are incredibly small and there's barely enough room to open your suitcase on the floor and continue to walk around. The lobby is dingy and the hotel staff not very helpful. I would recommend staying elsewhere.

Not bad, but not memorable

The service was okay, staff were friendly, but lacking that extra touch. For example, breakfast was 7:30-10:30 - we arrived at 10:10 and barely got our coffee when the food was quickly cleaned away. No chance to get breakfast! Staff should have noted us there and offered food before removing it. Rooms were small but clean (what we expected). But smoke definitely filtered in from somewhere else in hotel, and noise from other rooms as well. Beds were comfortable. Similar to other rooms we have stayed in that were less expensive.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Bring comfortable walking shoes! This is much more important than style. there is so much to see, and within walking distance. Lots of traffic, so driving is not a good idea. But even with summertime crowds walking around is comfortable and fun. Beware of aggressive vendors/tour guides/shoe shiners on the street. Just ignore and walk on by. Or settle on a firm price BEFORE engaging them.

Good hotel in the middle of Sulthanameth

The location of the Legend Hotel was perfect in the middle of Sulthanameth - just 5 mins walk from the Blue Mosque. The quality of the rooms seemed to vary and the room next to me was furnished a lot nicer, but the room quality was fine for a traveller just needing a place to sleep. The staff was very nice and helpful - got some awsome recommendations for restaurants for evening meals. Keeping the customer satisfied was obviously their motto :).

Vaatimaton hotelli, hyvä sijainti

Heikko äänieristys huoneissa. Huoneet näyttävät kuvissa hyviltä, mutta tapetit repsottivat ja alla näkyi hometta. Kylpyhuoneessa koko ajan kylmänkosteaa niin, että myös wc-paperi oli kosteaa. Likaiset matot. Keskivertoaamiainen, aamiaishuoneesta ihana näkymä merelle. Ystävällinen henkilökunta. Halpa lentokenttäkuljetus (30 e/suunta neljälle henkilölle), joka tuli hyvissä ajoin. Erinomainen sijainti. Kaksi tähteä olisi oikea luokitus kolmen sijasta.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Ortaklar-ravintola 50 metrin päässä hotellista: Mielettömän hyvät ja halvat ruoat, suuret annokset. 10 - 15 liiraa (= 4 - 6 euroa). Aina tulee ilmaiseksi alkuun leipää ja joku tulinen sörsseli, iltaisin lopuksi ilmainen tee/omenatee. Erinomainen ruokapaikka, jos kestää ylös-alas portaita juoksevan tarjoilijan, joka peittää kielitaidottomuutensa jatkuvaan nauramiseen ja hössöttämiseen. Toisista hän voi tosin olla myös hauska/huvittava.

bon rapport qualité-prix

Hôtel, avec vue sur le Bosphore, est très bien situé dans le quartier de Sultanahmet...tout près de la Mosquée Bleue, Sainte- Sophie, l'hyppodrome, le palais de Topkapi, Citerne Basilique, Grand Bazar, le marché Egyptien. Avec mes 2 copines, nous avons tout fait à pied la place de Taksim, le pont de Galata, la Tour de Galata, la colline Pierre Lotti, le Palais de Dolmabahçe........séjours très agréable. Chambre propre, linge de toilette changé tous les jours,le personnel aimable. Sans rien demander, le veilleur de nuit nous a apporté le petit-déjeuner au lit à 5 h 30 du matin avant de reprendre l'avion. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié. Jocelyne
