Good location. Very decent breakfast. Small rooms but sufficient to crash. Bar on roof is cool.

Convenient and Close to Most Sights

Posted Oct 11, 2013 on Hotels
We enjoyed four (cold) days in Istanbul and thought the Venera met our needs quite well. There weren't too many restaurants close to the hotel so that meant going for an evening walk after a full day of sightseeing.

Hotel Venera in Istanbul

Posted May 17, 2013 on Hotels
Hotel is very central and convenient, in the middle of the fashion district. The rooms were well maintained and elegantly designed, but utterly tiny. Our luggage barely fit in the room. The breakfast was awesome. They keep a large turtle confined to a fish tank in the breakfast area, and i found this rather inhumane for the creature. I wrote to management about that already.

Great hotel for business travellers

Posted Apr 18, 2013
Pros: The terrace bar was very nice good view and fast attentive service
Cons: The small pool did not look very nice
Location: About 1.5 km from Blue Mosque; in the garment district so surrounded by clothing shops and no resturants
the hotel seems to be for transient visitors as everyone seemed to be moving in and out all the time. It probably wouldn't be enjoyable for families with children but very suitable for business travellers and tourists.
