Recent guest reviews

The hotel is very nice and clean with kind and helpful staff and the location was exactly what we was looking for. On the roof there is very nice terrace with a great view of the city. The room was clean and comfy.

We visited Istanbul for a two night stay and stayed here and could not have been more pleased. The location was PERFECT, a few minutes walk from the Grand Bazaar, and about 10 minutes to the Blue Mosque and associated historical sights. The room we had was fantastic, spotless, modern and new looking. The room had an excellent size bathroom. The hotel has a superb roof terrace on 7th floor which great views over the water and Blue Mosque can be seen. We ate up here twice for lunch and food we had was excellent and really good value. We ate out one night at a restaurant not far, which was awful, we were conned. We wished we had eaten in the Restaurant at the hotel, the menu was great, and extremely good value. Highly recommend this hotel for a stay in Istanbul.

I recommend Best Western The President Hotel. It was a 5 star experience for me with the hotel’s great location, friendly staff, comfy rooms. Thumbs up in every way. I would definitely prefer to stay again.

My first time in Istanbul was marvelous, also thanks to this hospitable hotel, with great view on the Sea of Marmara. Great breakfast with lots of choice. One tip for dinner: please add more choice for vegetarians.

Had a really great experience in this lovely hotel. Rooms are spacious and well presented, their staff come across always professional and ready to offer help. The views from the terrace is amazing, especially sunset which stunning to say the least. I highly recommend this place to those who are looking at great service, location and spacious rooms.

I had visit The President Hotel last March. The staff were amazing. They should proud themselves.The breakfast and wiev of Terrace were fantastic. To compare most hotels in Europe, The President did a very good job. I will definitely return.

Stayed there many times, beautiful hotel with nice view, clean and comfy rooms, friendly staff, delicious breakfast. Excellent fast&free wifi service. You cant find a better and closer hotel to Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Beyazit and Eminonu. Steps away from tram line which you can take to go almost anywehere in the city. I will definitely choose President Hotel for my next visit to Istanbul

Me and my husband had a lovely two night stay after travelling around Turkey for two weeks. We had a room with view over the city, and even could see the sunset over the sea from the balcony. The breakfast was a major highlight of our stay. Location was convenient to see the Istanbul. Staff friendly and accommodating.

From arrival to to departure everyone we meet in the hotel was outmost profesional and friendly! Best value for the price . We had a wonderful room with outstanging views. Breakfast included worth the asking price. What a bargain.

We went here for a beer after walking around in Istanbul. The view from the terrace over Bosporen is breathtaking. I really recommend a visit, either for food or just a beer. The service is also very good.
