The Byzantium Hotel & Suites - Special Class4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Having stayed in as many of these types of hotels the one thing I always do is check my reservation. 48 hours after booking and 24 hours before check in. This tyne because I was travelling with my 5 year old and we were getting in late I called a third time just to be sure. Lo and behold, 1am with a daughter with an ear infection after 19 hours of straight travel, no room. He walked us and our bags to a place down the street which was clearly lower quality and then the next day we were supposed to check out again at 10 and move back which we had to do ourselves. The man who acted like manager or owner, never said sorry, never did anything to make it right. He claimed we were give his best rooms but I saw a few other open rooms the next day which were large with views.
We enjoyed our 4 nights at the Byzantium. The breakfast buffet had a good variety of choices including some excellent scrambled eggs. The room was small but comfortable and very quiet. It was a short walk to the Blue Mosque and other attractions. They had both wifi and a computer which we could use.
Only there for a handful of days but we had a great time. Sultanahmet location a real plus.
