10 Traveller reviews from Holiday Watchdog
"I am surprised that this hotel is not number one on the list.
Small, boutique hotel with beautiful, large, modern rooms and every amenity imaginable.
The staff was outstanding and went above and beyond to make sure that I had a great stay. Quite frankly, one of the best stays that I have had at any hotel that I have ever stayed in world wide."

I could almost return to Istanbul just for the hotel.
"This is a first class and I do mean class hotel. Outstanding staff, great restaurant [breakfast] and nice terrace to enjoy the evenings. The location is but a short walk from Istakall Cad. but that walk is straight uphill. The street it is on is a closed or at least limited access one since the Italian consulate is just across the street. The neighborhood is working class not a tourist one and has many great little and very basic but good eateries. Rooms are clean, modern and LARGE."

Oasis of calm in bustling Istanbul
"We were lucky enough to stay in room 41 which is at the top of the hotel and has a large terrace overlooking the Bosphorus, Top Kapi Palace and the Aghia Sophia. The room itself was massive and luxuriously appointed with a huge marble bathroom. The service was very good but also unobtrusive. Very much to be recommended....."

Our TomTom stay
"We visited Istanbul serveral times already.
This time I searched for a hotel with spaceous rooms in the BeyoglÃ¼ area and found TomTom Suites. What you see on their website is what you get: very large, comfortable rooms in a beautiful designed hotel. After a warm welcome the concierge took us on a small hoteltour and handed a good Istanbul map.
The staff made us feel at ease in a very modest way.
In the library you'll find all sorts of books and information about Istanbul and its history.
We enjoyed the view on the roofterrace while having breakfast. The location is quiet,
no trafic. The walk to the Istiklal Cad. is steep; a good daily exercise. No gym needed."

Enormous rooms, great view of Sultanahmet from the bar terrace
"The rooms are enormous for European standards. The bathrooms are very well equipped. The hotel is only 8 months old and everything is spotless and new. The hotel's terrace on the top floor is the real highlight. You can sit and look directly over at the Topkapi Palace and the Hagia Sophia. There are also great views over the Bhosporus. The breakfasts are fine - make sure you order the scrambled eggs (no extra charge). Alcohol is pricey in Istanbul as a whole and the hotel is no exception but the view is stunning. The hotel is located in a very quiet street but very close to great bars and restaurants (it is a bit of a steep walk). The hotel's location may put some sightseers off but it shouldn't. Istanbul has a great tram service that runs very frequently to Sultanahmet and the Blue Mosque. The tram station is about a ten minute walk from the hotel - downhill on the way, uphill on the way back. The tram only takes 10minutes to whisk you up to the Blue Mosque and only costs 1.4 Turkish Lire."

one of the best hotel in Istanbul
"Excellent location right on Taksim and Istiklal. nicely designed; very large rooms. There is nothing to say badly. everything was perfect. You have to see the view of the restaurant. The staff were very warm and friendly. Also all rooms are very quiet for a hotel in city center. you can hear nothing when you are in the room."

Perfect boutique hotel: dont stay anywhere else :)
"The hotel was excellent! The staff was very warm and friendly, and service was impeccable. One of the evenings i needed to get something from the store, and the manager himself walked me there and back :) Must mention - every floor has its personal butler who leaves little goodies for you at night!
Rooms were spacious and comfortable, bed was super cosy, and bathrooms were amazing - i loved the jacuzzi bathtubs and the shower and the underheating for the marble floors.... and all for such a reasonable rate! To top it off, the location was very convenient - short walk to Taksim Square, to the restaurants, and short cab ride to clubs. All in all, a must stay if you're visiting Istanbul!"

"What a lovely place!! We couldn't believe when we arrived.
Starting from the welcome, we'd like to thank to all staff for the friendly service and cozy atmosphere.
It's something more than a hotel with a incredible huge rooms and the bathrooms.Especially the bathrooms are bigger than standart hotel rooms.
The beds, bathrooms, breakfast and the friendly staff..
We highly recommend this hotel...."

makes you feel "younique"..
"I spent 4 days in this beautiful hotel. It has a terrific terrace with a beautiful view of Istanbul and the Bosphorus. The location makes for a very peaceful experience, even though it's only a few minutes walking distance from the main city center and lively Istiklal street.
The staff' and the service were excellent. I really enjoyed my elegant room in this historical building.
Everything was exceptional in Tomtom Suites Hotel.
I highly recommend it."
