Room is next to street so it is noisy due to traffic. Morning prayers over loudspeakers in early morning can disturb sleep.
Breakfast is average. Scrambled eggs are watery and cold. Some hot food such as sausages, potatoes are barely warm.
The food in the club lounge is somewhat limited.
2nd time i have stayed there in a years time. Great location to metro and access to Golden Horn tourism plus Laleli shopping. Staff are wonderful and helpful. Breakfast is great so is Wifi. Rooms are tiny but if you go to Istanbul and stay in the room shame on you.
We stayed in the Zurich Hotel Istanbul for a total of 5 nights, at the beginning and end of our tour of Turkey. We found it to be a nice place to stay, with the exception that the air conditioning didn't work when we were first there. As a result, the room temp. was about 27 degrees C. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay and found the staff to be quite helpful.
Experience a different side of Istanbul by visiting Laleli, often referred to as Istanbul's little Moscow. Primarily a commercial neighborhood featuring a multitude of clothes shops, Laleli is home to the famous Laleli mosque, a striking example of Ottoman Baroque architecture. The little Bodrum Mosque, originally a Byzantine church built in the 10th century, is also worth a visit.
