    Fabulous

    The hotel is nice and in a perfect position to enjoy a long stay in Istanbul. The breakfasts were very good and the staff was very helpful. The hotel has a good sound isolation from external noise and gives the opportunity to use internet freely.

    They have not cleaned the room on a daily basis (bathroom anyways was cleaned every day).

    A little small hotel in Sultanahmet center near by Aya Sofya, park, view at Halic, Galata Bridge. This hotel is not of poor quality.

    Hotel's maintenance staff attempted to withdraw from an my account twice...

    excellent location, walking distance from all city center points of interest.

    Rooms were not very clean, as we found hairs on our unused beds. we did not find the staff very reliable / trustworthy.

    Great value for money for new hotel with good rooms and service. Any issues were dealt with quickly. This is an ideal location as its based central to all major tourist spots, i.e. Sultan's Palace, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia. Very nice breakfast with good selection of cold meats, cheeses, greens and olives. I especially enjoyed scrambled eggs with tomatoes and great coffee.

    With the choice of over 900 sat TV channels only 2 were in english (BBC News and CNN). It would be also nice if they made use of their great roof terrace.

    Very good

    The hotel is cozy and has a very good location, close to all the important touristic attractions in the old city Sultanahmet. The room was nice, comfortable, and the breakfast was great: variety, freshness, international and traditional cuisine. The staff was nice and helpful.

    The cleanliness of the room was not done properly not even in the day of the check-in, and did not improve in the other three days of our staying. At the check-in, we found hair and dust on the room floor and hair on the toilet. The slippers were not of decent quality and they were stinking awful of chemicals. The towels were not replaced daily.

    Very good

    Breakfast was great including musli, bread, jam, cheese, ham, joghurt, fruits and vegetables, eggs, coffee, tea etc. Service personnel in the breakfast area was quite friendly!" Also the female personnel in the lobby was very friendly and supportive. The room itself was small but very comfortable with nice furniture. Shower with great water pressure. TV with more than 700 channels including 3 German channels. Opportunity to use the internet in the lobby. The location of the hotel is perfect for sightseeing/bosphorus cruises etc.

    Reception personnel was sometimes not very friendly (not welcoming when entering the hotel or seeing us of). When first entering our bathroom, we found a bunch of hair in the shower and the floor in the room was not perfectly cleaned.

    1 min to Gulhane tram station - perfect location; nice furniture.

    Small rooms; orange juice at breakfast is just orange, but not a juice :)

    The staff were excellent and helpful. The room was a good size, a shower that worked well, comfortable bed, and the room was nice and quiet. Excellent location only a few minutes walk from the centre and the sights. I recommend this hotel.

    Excellent location value for money situated in quiet street yet 2 min's walk from everything. New clean luxury compact family run hotel. Adequate facilities. Wi Fi throughout and free! Quality clean comfortable beds bedding towelling. Our room was fresh smelling smoke free. Well stocked mini bar fridge very reasonable prices. We were given extra bath robes and towelling within 5min's of asking at 2am! Bathrooms clean good shower. Soaps shampoo conditioner body lotion and even mini sowing kit provided free. Inclusive Brakefast Buffet as good as any 5 star plentiful selection of fresh breads cheeses eggs meats yogurts cereals tea coffee juices etc. Staff friendly helpful. Hotel restaurant located amongst many in same street as good if not better than any - without the usual rip off add on tactics - we had mixed grill and fish served hot tasty and fresh. This hotel is an undiscovered gem. Real value for money! C Craig (Dr) London.

    Fabulous

    Excellent location, new building, free wi-fi, very friendly staff, nice breakfast. Perfect place to stay for budget travelers, all in all leaves very good impression despite some minor issues listed below.

    These are just small things to make service a little better, generally the hotel is very nice. No sound isolation in rooms - you can hear everything that is going on on the floor and even next rooms sometimes. Wi-Fi doesn't work equally well in all rooms (almost no connection on the 6th floor). There were no kleenex tissues in the room, which could be handy sometimes. Very low quality of shampoo/bodysoap. The electricity turns off automatically when the room key card is not in the slot, which is fine, but it also turns off the fridge which is silly because everything in the fridge/minibar can't stay cold while you are away. Although the room itself was nice and clean, the floor was somewhat filthy, making it unpleasant to walk barefoot

    The hotel was new and very clean, very quiet and very central to the harbour, restaurants, cafes, parks and bars. The staff very helpful. A great bathroom and shower.

    The double room was small and had no view.

    Cant say enough about this hotel.Rooms a little small but beds great and comfortable.The room clean and nice.The whole hotel clean and staff very friendly.Try the food at night.Dont bother to try elsewhere.The best.I would just say we went for dinner at a 5 star and the food was ok normal.But the Raymond is out to be the best.I would stay there again no problems at all.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Newly opened hotel within easy access to major sites and transport links. Plenty of restaurants close by. Staff friendly and helpful. Would definately stay there again.

    Very little wardrobe space. We found the internet access to be poor. Unfortunately lift went out of action and we were on 5th floor.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    The room was great and spacious. The toilet is very comfortable. Very close to major sightseeing places. Very close to Gulhane Tram Station.

    The closet should be bigger. Exchange rate should be posted at the reception. There should be a fair policy of room charges as far as ordering from the restaurant is concerned. Our ordered was charged at a price, which was double in comparison with the prices writen in the menu of the restaurant.
