The location is really great ! You have to get up early befor they finish the milk on the breakfirst table.

I stayed 2 nights at the Legend. Very good value and location.

Staff was very accomodating and courteous. My daughter sprained an ankle, I called front desk and ice was on the way in 5 minutes. They also encouraged me to bring food from breakfast buffet to the room for her.

Don't have that much expectations, its a very nice neighborhood. I arrived one hour early for the check in time, and they made me wait for more than three hours.

Generally good, gym swimming pool and staff are good

It was very convenient to see the historic sites.We walked to all the major sites easily.

I stayed here 3 nights, which were prepaid. If I had to do it all over again I would stay else ware. Staff was friendly and helpful, the room was just okay. Perhaps it was just my room but it would be nice to at least have room for a chair to sit down other than having to sit on the bed all the time. To add, I asked for a non-smoking room, and they said that the hotel is a non-smoking hotel except for a few room. After the first night it was clear that it was the other way around. This is a smoking hotel with some rooms that are non-smoking. I say this because around ten in the evening when most of the guests were in their rooms the entire hotel smelled of cigarettes, including the staff area in the reception. When I pay $120 US per night I personally expect a little more than friendly staff and location. if you can get it for cheaper price it's an "ok" stay. Cheers

Even the hotel is well located, it is around about five minutes on foot from Blue Mosque and just few miles from Ataturk Airport, it had turned out a can or worms. To beginning with it was extremely noise because the hotel was under repair and workers have not stopped to hammer until midnight came. In addition the hotel has strong fresh paint and varnish smell, some used black bags made of plastic were into the closed, the rug looks it has not be cleaned since along and a cockroach run happily on the floor. THE HOTEL HAS NOT RESTAURANT, SO YOU SHALL FORGET TO GET A VIEW OF ISTANBUL LIKE THE PICTURES THAT ARE SHOWN ( I think photographs could be taken from a restaurant closed there, but it doesn't belong to hotel)

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.

Save yourself the aggravation and stay someplace else! I arranged a pick up at the airport, no one showed. When I asked about it when I did get there, the clerk said, "Well, do you have the email proving you talked to someone?" Nice beginning; but that was the way it was the entire time. If something was not done, it was always an attempt to deflect the blame on another person, not “I am sorry, what can I do to make it right?” The rooms are VERYsmall with no place to put your luggage other than the floor. I had a problem with that because of the roaches I saw in the bathroom and I did not want to bring them back as souvenirs! I asked for a wakeup call the next morning, it never came; again I asked at the desk and was told, “Who did you ask?” Unreliable desk clerks! The power was also out for several hours each day. Of course that was due to a fire in the city as they told me at the front desk, but it was not, power outages are common in Istanbul so make sure your hotel has a generator, this one does not. As far as breakfast is concerned, it really is nothing more than coffee (if they have power) bread, and some cheese. If staying in a tent had been an option, I would have considered it!

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.

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.

Very good area, cleaned room, and nice personals. Short walk distance to all famous attractions.

Clean, great location, traditional hotel, washroom could be updated, however it was very clean.

Upon arrival at 11:00 pm, we were told that we had a water problem and we had walk severl blocks to another hotel -- where the room for two was not bigger than 8x12 feet. The next day, we moved to the original hotel and were given a slightly larger room. The people at the desk were extremely friendly, but for the price we paid, they are several notches belelow Motel 6. Not worth the price.

If your number one priority in an Istanbul hotel is its location and don't plan to actually spend much time at the hotel itself this might be a good choice. It is only three blocks from the Grand Bazaar and a short walk to the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and Aya Sofya. As for the hotel itself there were some issues. For starters the power went off twice while I was there, once for five minutes and once for several hours. The room had a "mini bar" which was actually a small, broken refrigerator with a few cans of warm soda and bottled water that was not replenished. The only bathroom amenity was a small, unwrapped bar of soap--nothing else. There was a continental breakfast available with a very meager offering. There was an old fashioned radiator with no discernible way of turning it off so the room was very hot. The staff was generally friendly and spoke English well.

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.

It was not easy to find it since google does not work very well with Turkish streets but when we found it it was great and easy access to public transportations and to the touristic area,staff was nice and the room were clean every day but the bed and the tv were so outdated and not comfortable at all, for future i will make booking only for couple days first and if i like will book the rest of the trip

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.
