Great location just off the tram line and moreover within walking distance of the Grand Bazaar, Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. The view from the terrace is fabulous; breakfast was a full buffet of choices, and dinner was very good also. The gentlemen working at the front desk were all extremely helpful and firendly; there is a bit of 'selling' of certain tourist attractions and restaurants, but it was low-key and not at all a problem. Istanbul is a fantastic metropolis, an incredible mix of history and current affairs - I would love to visit again and might well choose the Old City again to stay.

My first business trip happened to be in Istanbul, booked Rast hotel based on positive reviews on this site also it's close to all the major attractions I thought I would have a chance to visit before I returned back but unfortunately time ran out. It's a wonderful hotel with very friendly and helpful staff, stayed for one night , all positive, rooms are well prepared, good size bed, comfortable, clean, good wifi in the room. Good selection for breakfast. Would stay here again one day when I return back for a proper visit.

The hotel staff were very accommodating and helpful. Great location in the old Sultanahmet area and close to the major sites. The breakfast buffet was more European in foods available, and did not have a great variety. but the food was good and the restuarant staff provided good service. The bathtub in our room leaded water onto the floor that was not fixed while we were there. But the hotel staff provided extra towels and floor mats to cope with the water. The room suited our needs as we spent most of the time going to the attractions in the local area. The views from the rooftop restaurant were beautiful and provided for great picture taking. overall, a great place to stay in Istanbul.

Rast met all our requirements according to our expectations. The hotel was near all the sites in the Sultanahmet. The staff was extremely competent in advising us on restaurants nearby. Having had a problem because my wife forgot her handbag in the taxi when relocating to the Rast hotel, the reception staff were excellent in assisting us to find the missing item. The free refreshments available in the reception area were a pleasure! Breakfast at the rooftop was a lovely way to start each day, not to mention the breathtaking view plus the good service! We can highly recommend the Rast Hotel.

With its excellent location and very helpful staff this must a a top pick for anyone who wants to be close to it all and yet not spend a fortune. The breakfast served on the top floor is excellent. Only drawback is the size of the room which in our case was barely adequate (and we don't need much space). So if you don't mind cramped quarters this is the place for you.

We only had breakfasts - they were quite good and the staff assisting with them were excellent. We stayed for seven nights at the Rast and were completely satisfied with it. It is very well located. Our oom was small but comfortable.

This hotel was great! It was a few minute walk from the Blue Mosque and about 15 minutes away from the Grand Bazaar. The rooms were very clean and spacious. The staff was also very welcoming and helpful. The best part...the view from the terrace. You have AMAZING clear views of the Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia, and the Bosphorus.
