Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Prince Istanbul
Recommend with one or two reservationsfrom Ert53
I agree with other postings, that it is is very annoying to have to pay lots of money for an orange juice at breakfast. And it was done pretty dishonestly - we had been warned so didn't accept the offer. And you wouldn't want to eat in the restaurant-we nearly did one night, but there was nobody else there so we beat a hasty retreat! There's no need anyway as it's a short walk to lots of nice restaurants including a very friendly Irish pub a block or two up.
Good locationfrom bmalay
Also rooms are very clean and modern.
4 stars my footfrom lifeisbliss
bad idea !!!from astiarjan
I was with one family (7persons), arrived at noon and found out that the road at the front of the hotel was under construction !!! Even my mini bus cannot get to the front of the hotel....there was also another construction (a building I think) at the left side of the hotel. I can hear the noise from the machines....I had to move my guest to another room to the other side, while I stay at the same room which has "the construction view". The hotel staffs told me that the construction will end the next day. It was true but only on mornings...
Breakfast was worse too, you have to pay additional EUR6 for an omlette...funny !!!
I better look for another hotel rather than staying there again on the next trip to Istanbul.
Better go to Ramada Istanbul (area of Taxim) or Best Western Old City...
Give this one a missfrom snroztraveller
On arrival after midnight, we were given a non-smoking room next to a construction site which was in full operation! When asked to move we were given the option of a 6th floor smoking room on the opposite side, which we accepted, as it smelt less smoky than the other room.
On departure on our tour, we requested the same room on our return, which was agreed to. However, when we did return, the room was not available, and we had been allocated the same non smoking room on the construction site.
Our objections fell on deaf ears, and we were then offered another room on the 6th floor, as we were told there were no others available. This room turned out to be a dog box, and we couldn't even open our suitcases without putting them on the bed, and the crockery and glasses were disgusting!
Having paid in advance for 3 nights premium accommodation, not the tour rate, I raised this matter with the manager, who, on checking our booking found a newly renovated room on the 5th floor, which was acceptable and we completed our stay there.
Breakfast was included, but many in the tour group opted to eat elsewhere.
Although easily accessed from the main drag, the hotel is located amongst an array of automotive spares and other hardware stores in alleys which at best are dingy and uninviting after dark.
good locationfrom nabeeldar
( only the sixth floor has views). The room was nice and big and more importantly clean.
We were lucky enough not to have anyone on either side of our room for 14 nights.....but we had company thereafter, and I asked to be moved to another room on the same floor ( roundy itialian students !!!)...which the receptionist was quick to action.
So i agree with other reviewees the walls are very thin !!
Location was good, as it was approx 100 m from the Gulhane tramline, and 300m from Sirikeci tramline. Easy walking distance to all Istanbuls major sites( blue mosque, spice bazaar,
grand bazaaar, etc etc)
All the hotel rooms are having major make over, ( 1st to 5th have been done....only the 6th left) ) and look very nice.
Recptionist were always helpful and answered any questions we had about goign and getting to places.
Breakfast was typical Turkish style...plenty of olives, cucumber, tomatoes, bread, soup, turkish Tea, coffee, bakery products, pastries, boiled egg, cheese, and a variety of hot dishes.....but amazingly you had to pay extra for an omlette or fried egg !!!
Would I return to this hotel ? Porbably not ;) as walls are paper thin and you have to pay extra for a fried egg !
Lousy Hotel, Terrible Staff !from Dragy
Also, the walls are so thin, that you can have conversations with people from the nearby room without having to raise the voice.
It is quite expensive and it is definitely not a 4 star. Moreover, during breakfast they serve an orange juice and when you check out they charge you for every juice you drank (even though there is no sign saying you have to pay for that juice).
The hotel staff is lousy. There is one guy, Ceyhun, terrible service. He gets upset if you don't take the expensive trips that he proposes and takes an offended look.
One more thing : for transportation to the airport from the hotel they would charge 12 EUR / person. A nearby shop offers trips with only 3 EUR / person.
It is really the type of hotel that wants to rip you off !
Choose a better hotel in this area and dont waste your hollidaysfrom ALFASEIS
Great hotel great location but unfriendly staff!!from kolbrunn
bad experiencefrom A TripAdvisor Member
She claimed that her superior could not speak English and refused to contact him. The hotel itself was clean, however the rooms were small and lacked facilities associated with 4 star establishments. It would be fair to call it a 3star hotel with 1star attitude. I could not in all fairness recommend this hotel.
Top Local Tips for Istanbul
ignore people who want to practice english on you strangers who approach you speaking english are ready to con you look out
Location is important You have to visit Sultanahmet historical place .Eg: Hagia Sophias Topkapi palace etc.
Istiklal Street must be seen Great street with people flowing up&down with Taksim Square must be seen. many stores, pubs, bars, clubs, restaurants with delicious food, (especially Saray is one of the best to be. Get crazy about those sweet things). Also they said about Baghdad Street, but we could not reserve time for that. Hope next time.
