Comfortable hotel in a great location
Great value, excellent location, fabulous breakfast
This hotel is a great base to explore Istanbul, particularly for a first time visitor. It's easy walking distance to several historical attractions and the sea, and about 100 meters from a tram stop. The breakfast buffet was very impressive.

OK but definitely room for improvement
Staff, location, free internet
Our room was too small - it was a challenge to open my suitcase The hotel was overall old and certainly in need of renovation Location was great - in old district and well located Price was surprisingly high considering the size of the room and state of the hotel Best thing about the hotel were the staff - very friendly, knowledgeable about the area/restaurants and attentive

Great location, awesome service
Great location, v friendly staff, value for money
I arrived at 17 am at the hotel and didn't have to wait till the official check in time to get my room. The hotel is within walking distance to the main places of interests like the blue mosque and hagia sofia. A Ditton ally, it's 2 minutes away from gulhane tram station. Best of all, the staff were v friendly and thoughtful. They offered me tea when I had already checked out n was waiting for a shuttle pick up.

A very plesant stay
Location, clean room, friendly staff
Raymond Hotel is centrally located, close to main attractions, surrounded by local restaurants and shops. It is easily accessible and well marked. The staff was friendly. The hotel has a nice terrace at the roof from which you can admire the perspective of Stambul.

Excellent staff and breakfast but expensive
Staff, view from the terrace and the breakfast
I was surprised at how small the room was and the view (a wall to another building) when to be honest it was quite pricey. Upon arrival our room wasn't ready so we went up to the terrace which has beautiful views! The staff were really nice though and looked after us well. The breakfast was also fantastic and the room was comfortable and clean ( :

Romans vary but well appointed
Room standard, staff, tourism advice
The first room had views of rubbish and a wall. The second room was much better. The girl helping people at breakfast organise their day was brilliant.

Pretty little hotel
roof terrace, staff, restaurant
This is a pretty little hotel in the heart of old Istanbul.The room was really small but it was clean. The roof top terrace had a great view and good food. The staff was really nice. Location was the best perk to this hotel. Close to all the main sites.
