    Although it was a night stay in this new hotel, I can say that everything was just fine. I got to the hotel quite easily as it is located in the center of old town and the room was so comfortable. Breakfast was fair enough and the staff was very informable and kind. Thank you

    It was so great to stay at Balin as it was a brand new hotel in the center of old istanbul. The room was very comfortable and staff made the most of it. We got all the information from the front desk (special thanx to guliz for her recommendations and kindness).. We will be back to balin if we ever come back to the sultans city, istanbul.

    This was our second trip in Istanbul and the balin hotel was a good choice for us. As it is said by the staff, this is a pretty new hotel and we were the first ones in our room =)) That sounds really good. Location was right in front of the grand bazaar. Special thanks to the staff who made the most of our stay.

    It was a brand new hotel close to the main attractions in the old city. So close to the Grand Bazaar and others of course. When we first arrived the hotel we had a warm welcome and pretty useful information for the area. Thank you

  • Older travelers

    Definitely I shall rate this hotel 10 out of 10 for the following reasons: * Fabulous staff with great help from each individual one whenever you need. * Professional treatment of the hotel management for whatever support you may need through your stay i.e. reservation amendment, airlines inquires and airport transportation arrangement. * The location by itself is a big plus (advantage); 75 % of the main sightseeing of Istanbul & main tours attraction within walking distance around the hotel. So, you may save some money for avoiding visiting these close attraction through tours company rather walk to them. Simply in few words it was extraordinary hotel stay.

    Good localisation. Friendly staff.

    Small rooms. Very small rooms. Small - miniatur tv set. Poor channels. 1,5 sqm bathroom - no way to take shower - you must touch the walls of the shower cabin all the time. Breakfast in the room without windows - awful food. Internetn week signal.

    The location close to the Tram, Grand Bazaar and the main attractions.

    We were on the 4th floor which is good if you are a midget as I kept bumping my head on the low roof which slope down

    The hotel is wonderful! Maybe the best I have been in in Istanbul! And I have been in a few :) The location is perfect! The staff is amazing - polite, always there to assist you and help you if you have any problems ot whatsoever! The rooms are very clean and always aromatized, with everything yuo need of a room! When you arrive you receive a very friendly and warm welcome acompanied with welcome letter, always in your room you will find compliments from the hoted - coffee, tea and fruits! When you check out( again with a compliment - Turkish soap) they will help in every way - order a cab, help you with your luggage (there was this man Orhan I think that carried our luggage to our parking lot and helped us) ! Anyway, you won't regret staying in balin hotel!

    The hotel is in a great and convenient location just 200 metres from the Grand Bazaar which is great for shopping! It's also within walking distance to the Beyazit tram station and the major sites like Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace. Throughout my stay, the hotel staff were very polite and friendly and also helpful when I lost my camera bag in the shuttle when arriving back from touring Turkey. I must say the sales manager was also very generous as she was able to accommodate our requests. Overall I would certainly come back to this hotel again when I visit Istanbul in the future. Thanks Balin Hotel!

    Excellent location close to transport and sightseeing. Breakfast was good and staff were very friendly. Nice touch was an e-mail thanking us for choosing the hotel and for staying there after we left.

    Breakfast was good but not quite to my western taste.
