It was my second time and also great 3 nights stay in hotel. Price range was just nice due to winter season-bit more than 80 euro for 3 nights, in summer time it was my charge for a night; breakfast was good and view from breakfast room was astonishing, I was quite upset to miss breakfast next morning due to my long sleep. All personal is nice, professional and speak good English. I've checked in hotel way after midnight and got worm, professional and family like receiving: all needed info, high quality service, hospitality, even I've got well made hot tea(Turkish chai) in my room, some snacks (I was quite hungry-almost 3 am and after 12 hours flight)-Special Thank You and Big Hello to Mehmed Ali, he is a Great Person and valuable asset in Hotel Team. I was glad to see him on duty again when I was checking out! For sure I'll be back and stay in Hotel again on my flight back this year and so on.

Although Venere site says payment in local currency but it charges your card when the rate is non-refundable. Breakfast not very good and sometimes yesterday's stuff.

Cituation of hotel is excellent. Close to Blue Mosque and Hippodrome Square but it is very easy to find it. Staff is friendly. Service in hotel is high leveled. A good choice for those who like to stay in Sultanahmet district.

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!
