this is a lovely hotel. the rooms are small but with newly renovated bathrooms and great bath products (which you fewquently don't get in tourist hotels in turkey). the terrace has great view of the mamara sea. the furnishings and floorings were better than most other places we stayed. the location was excellent! you are just steps from the blue mosque and arasta bazaar. we walked all over the old town from here. and the location, which is below the main tourists sites, makes the hotel very quiet at night. I'd return here in a heartbeat.

Everything was great! Lovely and very helpful staff, great Turkish breakfast with amazing views over the sea of Marmara, central but safe and quiet location. I would definitely stay here again... and again!

We had the double twins bedroom, room # 302 Galata, which was very small. We could barely walk around in the room. In the bathroom, the shower head sprayed the entire bathroom, so the mirror, sink, and floor got wet. I gave them a 6 for room cleaniness. They didn't use flat sheet for the bed. The duvet didn't look dirty but just seem like it wasn't change for every new reservation, beside this the room was very clean. The staff was extremely nice and spoke good english.

Our stay at Bucoleon Palace Hotel was perfect. Rooms are clean, quiet and probaly were renewed the day before we checked in. The hotel staff is competent and very very kind and helpful. The location is perfect to visit Istanbul: I cannot think of any better location than this. Next time I go back to Istanbul (and I will) I'll get a room at Bucoleon Palace Hotel

Thanks Venere for featuring this great quality hotel! Everything was exceptional, starting with the customer service, always smiley people at reception willing to help us (two women alone-mother and daughter), and even got an upgrade to the Prences Suit for the same price. Every night on our return from the cold weather we were offered a very welcomed and complimentary hot cup of coffee. Located just five minutes away from all the sightseeing places of the old city, there are also some lovely restaurants on the same street if you don't want to go too far for dinner. I love Turkey! Definitely will return to Istanbul and to Bucoleon Hotel!
