Steps away from Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofiya

Posted Jan 29, 2017
So pleased with this hotel. The friendliest of hotel staffs, and I usually avoid superlatives. The location is why I booked there and I was not disappointed. A few steps from foreign exchange bank. Restaurants everywhere. Fantastic breakfast. Wait until you see the sauna, spa, fitness center and Turkish bath. Amazing, Best value for money yet.

Fantastic location and endearing staff

Posted Jan 1, 2017
We read previous reviews and felt comfortable with our decision to book. However, having stayed a week at the Regency Suites we can quite confidently say that it deserves all the positive praise left by previous guests. A special thank you to the staff and in particular; Ali for helping sort our internet connection on the SIM card (was kind enough to make the charges to his account and accept payment which saved us the trouble of going online and reading through all the offers). Hugo for his recommendations on places to see and eat - making bookings for events and restaurants. Last but not least, Abadan, for her positive, cheerful demeanour and ensuring all our needs were looked after at breakfast every morning. We have no hesitation in recommending Regency Suites to friends and family and will definitely stay again when we have the good fortune of visiting Istanbul again. Room was very clean and comfortable (with jacuzzi). Good spread for breakfast - don't forget to fill up on the cookies, including the option for a cup of Turkish coffee. 500 metres from the Blue mosque, Aya Sofia, Basilica Cistern, Topkapi Palace and the tram stop. Proximity to sights and public transport was a definite plus when travelling with kids.

This is a very nice property with super-good staff. Ali and the Manager were exceptional. They along with the lady in the breakfast area made my family stay there one of the best experiences. We never felt that we stayed in a hotel, rather we were at home with this hotel staff. If we visit Istanbul again, I will never look for any other place. Example of exceptional service: I was looking for classical Turkish music and Ali made a CD for me!!! He is such a brotherly person, that he was there for each and every small or big questions we had for them. During our trip of 2 weeks, we stayed in 8 different hotels in both Italy and Turkey, by far this is the best place.
