              We stayed here for 5 night and couldn't been happier. The staff was so accommodating. They help us many times and were generous with that time. The location is near the tram about 15 minutes to the sites Topkapi & Blue Mosque, we walked more often that not, but it was about a 20 minute walk. I was happy not to be close to the "tourist" area. The rooms were a nice size. The breakfast was full and had many assortments. We would stay there again.

              If you want to be very close to the the sites and don't like walking this would not be the place for you.

              - Staff were on the whole very friendly, polite and informative. When there was a question or feedback they were very quick to try and resolve it. The staff are the beacon of this hotel - they're fantastic. - Hotel was quiet - Breakfast was quite good - the breads and pastries were amazing and fresh.

              The biggest issue for me was that the gym wasnt free. Fair enough that the massage/turkish baths require a fee but 10€ for a single use of the fitness room was too excessive for me. - In our triple room were three single beds. One of the beds had ripped sheets - not what you expect from a 4* hotel. But when we mentioned this to the cleaner - the sheet was replaced immediately. - Hotel was difficult for cab's to find (it's on a side street) - I found the prices in the hotel bar a little over the average rate for similar hotels in Istanbul

              The position of the hotel is quite central, there is a taxi stop nearby and the fast-tram stop at four blocks. The brakfast is ok, the room confortable, the staff quite kind.

              During my stay there were renovation works, so there was a lot of noise; I was obliged to complain three times, then the Director gave me a discount.

              Nice comfortable room with a sea view

              The breakfast was not up to par. It may be 900 meters from the Grand Bazaar as the crow flies but by foot it is 1,6kms.

              Staff was very rude . I had to wait 2 hours before they checked me in The only reason I was forced to stay because I had a non refundable booking which they took great advantage of. I felt like a criminal. I was continuously watched and I did not feel comfortable. Breakfast was definately not 4 star . They were serving like 2 star breakfast. Room they said was triple bedroom. They should be fined their so called triple room was 2 single plus sofa bed single which was small like a kids bed They are supposed to be the American brand best western??????? I usually stay in Hilton or holiday inn. Never had bad experience

              The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was also very clean and comfortable and had modern fittings. The breakfast buffet was really good too.

              The hotel was reallt hot and we found it difficult to sleep at night time on the the night that we stayed there. the A/C wasnt working, it would only blow out warm air.

              My wife and I are now the Best Western Senator Hotel’s biggest fans. Funda at the front desk was exceptional from our initial contact, reservation, and check-in, and the rest of the staff were al so outstanding. The Bartender (we forget his name) was also cheerfull and staff Mostafa at the front door is considerate, professional, and eager to help. They seem to have a magic about the place We plan to make reservations again next year for the 40th anniversary.
