    Very good

    Faboulous location in the centre of the old city. Good breakfast. Small but comfortable and clean rooms.

    Small rooms, limited facilities outside of the rooms, personel not always efficient, personel advise on tourist events and destinations is dubious, failed to provide the free airport shuttle service.

    Very good

    The fantastic wiev from the top floor / dining room / terrace. Good breakfast and free internett/PC and massasje chairs in the lobby. Room with space enough for three big people. Nice staff.

    Quite noisy street (which is natural in this location) made it difficult to sleep at night with the window open. The bath room wasn't totally clean at arrivel (the shower mostly).

    Location, hotel is situated in the center of tha old city and 10 minutes walking distance from all mayor city sights. Reception staff was very helpfull. Restaurant terrace on the roof top of the hotel with fantastic view on the main sights is great.

    Reconfirm your airport transfer arrangement few times, otherwise there is possibility that nobody will wait for you on the airport.

    The view at the terrace at the breakfast (It was gorgeous) and the location of the Hotel - just at the heart of the city)Also the staff met us at the airport!!!

    Really nothing - liked everything!

    Exceptional

    Travelling with my two sons it was wonderful to find a hotel with 3 single beds in a room. The complimentary breakfast was very good with lots of selection, and the lady in charge of the breakfast was very pleasant. The hotel and our room was kept very clean. The front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful. The two computers in the hotel lobby was great to have to keep in touch with people at home. Our overall stay at the Rast Hotel was a wonderful experience, and I would highly recommend it to anyone. G. Jones from Ontario, Canada

    Good

    The location is ideal for those who want to visit the most attractive touristic places in Istanbul.

    Transport from the airport to the hotel was not properly arranged even though I sent the hotel a reminder email one day before the travel.

    Superb

    Excellent location, and friendly staff

    The double-bed room was too small, and the bed should really be called a 'twin' rather than a queen or king-size bed. The 3-bed room was much larger, and is good for a family.

    Please write at least 15 words The location was fantatic and all the staff were pleasant and very helpful. The whole 3 day stay in Istanbul was made more enjoyable by the good experience at the Rast.

    Fabulous

    The situation of the hotel is perfect for exploring the sights of Istanbul, many of which are close by, with the tram line available for excursions to Galata / Beyoglu. You can also stop at Eminönu and board a ferry to the Asian side, or up the Bosphorus. Within walking distance from the hotel there is a wide range of restaurants to choose from. The transport from and to the airport was also much appreciated.

    If we should suggest one improvement, it would be in the variety and standard of offerings for breakfast.

    Superb

    The staff at the Rast Hotel were wonderful and the room we had 501 had an amazing view of the Blue Mosque. The breakfast was exceptional. They all made our stay a real treat. Thank you

    There was no plug for the washbasin in the bathroom so shaving for my husband was rather difficult. Not a real problem just inconvenient.
