Best Western Plus The President Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The location is perfectly close to main attractions; Grand Bazaar hardly 3 mins walk, Metro station not more than 2 min on foot, and SultanAhmet barely 10 minutes walk. Staff is alert to help you, breakfast is a good mix of Turkish & Continental food. Hotel is clean and rooms are reasonably spacious. The roof top restaurant offers good city view, while music playing as you eat. I suggest taking dinner at least once during your stay.

I had a good experience in this hotel the staff are friendly the room is a bit tight but not bad and it has a great location near the grand bazar and the metro and clos to yanikapi harbor.

THE PRESIDENT HOTEL - is a 4 star hotel in the Best Western hotel chain - ideally located in the center of historic old Istanbul -200 yards from the Grand Bazaar, 3/4 of a mile from Topkapi, the sultans palace, The Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The President, is impeccably maintained to the highest standards, amenities include everything from a beautiful swimming pool to a roof top restaurant serving delicious meals in a setting that overlooks the Golden Horn and the Bosphorus. The complementary breakfast ranked with the best I have had at any hotel in the world. The staff of this 4 star hotel are 5 star employees - totally professional, immaculate in their dress and manner, they spoke excellent English, anticipated our every need and truly treated us as honored guests. They arranged for everything from complementary shuttles to and from the airport to multiple tours within the city. Every request is addressed immediately, quietly and professionally. The day before our departure I asked if there were facilities I could use to obtain boarding passes for our trip home - In less than 5 minutes I was presented with the passes - they are truly a great team.

Hotel had everything we needed. Staff very pleasant and spoke English. Rooftop restaurant great view of water and city. Food very good. Had a fish special that was excellent. Also in walking distance to many landmarks and points of interest. Lobby floor being redone but did not interfere with entering or leaving building.

This hotel is great. I had a very nice room, clean and not a bad size. The hotel staff was friendly. The location was walking distance to the big bazaar, the Blue mosque. I felt safe walking the streets. Wonderful trip

A very nice, friendly hotel at a good price. The breakfast was excellent. The restaurant's views of the Sea of Marmara are beautiful.

Best point about this hotel is its location but rooms are very small. If small rooms are OK with you then its a nice place to stay. Its in the middle f the city. near the tram, blue mosque, hagia sofia, grand bazaar (all walking). Lots of foot shops. My stay was good. Staff english speaking and very helpful.

Hotel was very clean and staff was very helpful. Almost everyone spoke English. Location was within walking distance for the Grand Bazar, the Blue Mosque, and Haga Sophia. Wonderful views from roof top bar and pool. Would definitly recomend and would stay there again.

Old town location GREAT. Iwould stay again as it was as good or better than other Hotels we have stayed at. Only negative was the problem with the computers althought they we at no charge.
