Rating by category:
The staff of the hotel are very friendly, especially the manager at day time and the staff at the buffet room. This is something I liked most about the hotel. They are very responsive, too, to any problems that the guests may face. I also liked the cozy environment of the hotel. The room is clean and is made-up regularly. I have found the rate very reasonable compared to other hotels of the same standard. They also have offers for different sight seeing trips at reasonable prices. The location of the hotel is very convenient. There are a number of restaurants close to Turvan, yet it is free from outside chaos as it is a bit far from traffic ways. Most importantly, the Bosporus straight is only five minutes away from the hotel. The tram station is three mins away. And most of the touristy places such as Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sofia, Archeological museum are within walking district.
The lift of the hotel is too small. The breakfast is everyday the same. There should be a toaster at buffet. And eggs should be prepared in different ways, not just boiled only.
I loved the friendly staff, Helpfull and the hospitality was excellent. The price I paid and service we got was so worth-it. The delicious breakfast we got every morning was the best. I highly reccomand Turvan hotel to everyone who is not to sure weather to pick this hotel or not. The staff try there best to help you in every way and if you ask for there help they give full services. Don't think just book :)
Truvan Hotel is in heart of Istanbul, near to the most historic monuments (Sultanahmet, Aya Sofia, Egyptian Bazaar ...) and also near to all means of transport (Metro station, train, ferry terminal) . The heritage of the Hotel is it staff who is the most kindest, understanding and friendly in the world. Both 2 men and a women who are in office, still trying to make your stay enjoyable in Istanbul, for their recommendations, advice.s ... to visit Istanbul, and even takes care of your reservations for other activities of the city as the evening of the dervishes. And i shouldn't forget the assistants Sami & Brahim, who are always ready to help you with a pleasant smile;
The staff were very helpfull specially Khadija and the location was very close to the monuments you don't need to take any transportation.
everiving i like very much.
The location is excellent, near Topkapi, Sofia, Grand Bazaar and close to Galata bridge. Also it is close to good transport such as train and tram. The price was very cost effective for this location. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was internet in the room. There were good nearby cafes and shops.
Be careful about extras such as shuttle buses, the market rate is 10 euro from Sabiha Gokcen airport, they may try to charge much more. There were a few small problems such as a short powercut and a few things not maintained in the room, probably the hotel is slightly in need of updating, but for the price and location it represents good value.
Located in city center, close to the tourism ferry wharf. The staff of the hotel are very friendly affection and warmth. Good English speaking of the hotel's staff, especialy is Mr. Ferhat.....
Pros: - Location is the best about this hotel, it is 1 min away from tram station which takes you to all attractions in the city. - Price (the only reason I chose this hotel is my limited budget) - Breakfast: it is kinda good, some good food there, and it varies, but I got bored for it the last 2 days and had breakfast somewhere else (I stayed there 7 days)
Well, other than the things I liked, I disliked everything in the hotel, so cons: - cleaning of the room and bathroom was horrible, the bathroom was like the worst bathroom I have seen in hotels. and yes it is that horrible ! also the room, is very very small and not clean, the bed sheet is not clean either ! so cleanliness is really poor ! so do I recommend the hotel? yes and No ! yes if you have a limited budget (comparing to other hotels in the area the price is fantastic) and no, I would say pay more money and avoid this hotel !
Even though I had a resrvation for 2 nights, I was bumped to a worse hotel on arrival. Then they insisted I come back for the second night. There is a construction sight out back.They sometimes work thru the nite. When I was there they were pouring concrete all nite.
there is a good hotel room, good breakfast, you can relax in the hammam, but would like to see a Turkish bath was free, and the massage I was willing to pay.
We booked double rooms, but when we arrived at night, our rooms were occupied, we were placed in a bad room, the next day we changed the number to those who were supposed to be on the first day
The location of the hotel, very near to the tram and ferry stations.
Small rooms, very dirty washrooms with broken tiles. Other than the location, I do not advise staying at the hotel....
very nice location in the heart of istanbul where you can walk to all the touristic sites, friendly staff, delecious food with nice restaurants beside it...
rooms needs to be more equipped.
the place of hotel is really good. you can go most places on foot. staff of the hotel is really helpful.
only dark room.
The person who had shift in the morning was the best ever receptionist I ever met in my whole life. Understanding, good dealing, soft spoken and everything unlike his one of the collage there
One of the receptionist was very rude and exactly opposite to the guy who usually has his shift in the morning. We left the hotel 5 days early due to his rude behavior
There was no windows in the room. The cost of transfer is too high - 50 eur to and from airport. The mini bus to airport came with delay 40 minute - I have paid already fo transfer as private service and had opportunity to lost my flight. The location jf hotel is good - the historical center of Istambul, price is good.
Hotel needs renovation.
