    Nice clean hotel, good food and good return of money. Suggest not to eat in adjacent restaurant and look for something in hotel restaurant which is good and competitively priced.

    Location. It’s away from all tourist attractions but that's why, I believe, the price is much cheaper than other hotels. Metro is five minutes walk which then take half hour to forty minutes to main attractions like blue mosque, Sophia etc…

    Noise from the elevator all through the night. Pages missing from restaurant menu's/ Bathroom door handle kept coming off Room cleaning not done everyday. The restaurent phone is always ringing. Only one of the staff in the whole hotel spoke english. Most of the waiters just nod that they understand when they dont and bring you something you didnt order. The rest of the time they just stand around chatting and dont help Costs about twenty pound in a taxi from airport. The waiters shout across the restaurent and run. Drink in mini bar was past due date. Called room service for water, was told 'i dont understand english' and hung up. Airconditioning does not work, room gets very very hot. Garages behind hotel, u get car noises all day. Front of hotel is a motorway. Stair case full of beds and pillows.

    Excellent service, very nice rooms

    The card-key system seemsed to be rather unreliable. Nearly all of our small party had pronblems and needed the cards re-setting.

    People in the reception were helpful - Close to ikea and shopping malls

    - Food in the restaurant (more variety) / Personnel speak better English

    pretty much nothing

    the staff has no English and are extremely rude (and lazy). i believe they think they are managing a jail rather than a hotel. if you forget your swipe card / keys to the room, they don't easily let you back into your own room. the housekeeping don't replace toilet papers, need to go to all the way to the reception to a get a new onne. they assume that clients are criminals and always need to be watched and monitored... anyway, I highly recommend this place being avoided at all costs, but if one wishes to experience how a hotel can be run so badly it is a good example.

    i think the comfort of the room was the best thing. i unfortunately due to lack of time could not use any other facility but i am sure they must be great as well!

    lack of english speaking personnel

    We thought the service was excellent, the breakfast great, and (since we were traveling by bus) the location convenient.

    I could not sleep because the cleaners of hotel rooms them cleaning machine was too louder which had distubed me and prevent me to sleep good also the carbit was old and dirty and the room I reseeved 28 m2and I found my room smaller than what I have reseeved .

    This is the third time we stayed at the Grand S. It is conveniently located at the Buyuk Otogar, on the Metro line from the airport. The service is excellent, the room above average (by Turkish standards), and the breakfast exceptional. We will return.

    Our only complaint is that the central air conditioning system was down, and our room averaged over 85 degrees. It came on twice, each time for about one hour. The staff shrugged and said that they were working on it. I suppose this happens, and we will still return on our next trek. But it was darn uncomfortable.

    Close to the Bus station Nice and clean rooms

    The swimming pool is not so big The hotel is on a kind of motorway, so if you have the room on the road it can be noisy.

    Nice room, good facilities, very friendly staff.

    Location next to a busy road.

  • Single
    9.2

    The only reason for choosing this hotel is proximity to Istanbul main coach station. It is a good hotel with comfortable rooms and free wifi. It is noisy due to the busy road but at £46 for a room it was excellent value for money. This is a hotel that caters for this specific purpose (coach station) and it is perfect just for that. Also, it is easy and cheap to get to it from the airport (metro).
