        • Family with children
          7.4

          The room was clean, tidy and comfortable albeit a bit small (although most turkish hotels seem to be this way). The area was convinient and closeby to the centre of town, shopping and food.

          It said we had free wireless but the wireless did not work anywhere in the hotel. Not in the guestroom or even the lobby. The breakfast choice was limited but fair. Not reccomended for family with childern

        • Group of friends
          4.2

          The hotel was close to the center

          The room and the bathroom were small, the breakfast was poor and the staff was not so friendly

        • Couple
          6.2

          Very good breakfast and convenient location since the metro and tram are 5 min walking distance from hotel. Also the staff where helpful. The price was low and rooms were very clean

          Location of the hotel was in a very very busy area so a lot of noise in the rooms. Some basic needs were missing, like a fridge to keep our drinking water cold. Rooms were relatively very small as oppose to what the pictures suggested.

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          Breakfast was ok

          I have made reservation by internet and after arrived to the hotel.The recepsionist tried to refuse us by saying."there is room avaliable".i showed him the confirmation email from Booked.net the he said "he didnt receive it"after i told him i will complain to Booked.net and pushed him we finally got the room.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          Good location, short walk to the tramway or rail station. The Grand Ant is not grand but a good for value hotel ideal for a short city break.

          Rooms are small but ok. We were given a top (9th) floor room because we asked for a quiet room. Still heard the lift and slamming doors in the early hours but slept well. The breakfast buffet was ok but was exactly the same every morning.

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          Good location, nice price. Room is small but clean wit air condition. Thre is posibility to park in fron of the hottel after 18 oclock.

          It's a little bit more noisy at night than i expected. Credit card payment is accepted with sour face. They preferr cash.

        • Older travelers
          6.6

          Good location, near all Istanbul attractions

          Small rooms but not a problem for me.Otherwise, I was invoiced in Turkish Lira not in EUR as I reserved.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          The location is excellent for accesibility to air port through the nearest metro station and by tram station to shopping centres, museums and old city areas.

          Nothing specific, however I missed the tourist maps, information on tour transportation packages for the city.

        • Couple
          6.2

          room cleaness

          repeatative dishs for breakfast without renewing

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Good location, comfortable double bed. Air conditioner heats well (the weather was cold and it came in handy). We were not experiencing any problems with outer noise on the 6-th floor and were feeling comfortable during our first stay in Istanbul.

          Cigarette stubs on the balcony (although no problems with cleaning in the room). The balcony itself is very small and not safe enough because of low borders. One of the persons on reception seemed to be not friendly in contrast to other staff. One of the towels have had a hole (partially sewn). The walls and ceiling in the room are still acceptable but not so fresh, it is better to renovated them. Finally, the floor was laminated (it's quite OK, but contradicts to "All guest rooms have wooden floor" statement in the Hotel overview on the site).

        • Single
          9.2

          Very friendly and helpful staff, they clean the room and flats multiple times a day, it has a fair breakfast, and a very good location at the city centre.

          The room was a little noisy during the day.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          ...Near important places have to be visited...good breakfast...rooms clean....friendly staff...

        • Couple
          4.6

          There were some facilities in the room.Location was good: not quite center town; good restaurants and shopping around the hotel. The price was OK.

          1.Some dirt in the room and bathroom, though clean towels every day! Poor breakfast, but good taste. Parking problems!!!! On website: free guest parking! It is not true! If you are lucky, you will find a parking place in front of the hotel, if not, you will have to pay at public parking nearby.

        • Couple
          7.4

          Good location, clean rooms, good breakfast

          although we made reservation for parking place on hotels private parking, when we arrived they told us that there is no available parking place for us. Fortunately, there is public parking nearby, about 10 EUR per day.

        • Couple
          5.4

          the only thing which i liked about grant ant is the location as its in the city were i can access the trams and metro..easy to visit places.

          the room was very small and the bathroom cubicle was quiet small, hardly we could move. the reception staff was not at all friendly and they did charge an extra amount as service charge for credit card.
