We were friends in Istanbul. The hotel is for a city journeys ideally. The location is perfect and the tram on your doorstep. Though the hotel lies in the russenviertel, but not too bad. The service was good, the waiters in the black bar very courteous! The breakfast was sufficient. There was fresh bread, fried eggs freshly made, fruit, yogurt and so on. So everything you need. The coffee was good. We can agree with the assessment of another traveller said. We can these statements not confirm. We really enjoyed it. Although the room was small but very clean. The ... pool we didn't use. It remained us no time. We have not in the hotel eaten, but the food was good and plentiful. read hotel review

Good hotel for a short city break. Central location about 3 minutes walk to the station and 4 stops (5 minutes) from the major attractions for example Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia away. Very clean upscale district in laleli. read hotel review

Decent hotel in a good central location

General a good hotel to stay at, the roof bar was nice with lovely views. View from restaurant also, had dinner here and it was OK. The only negative point I experienced was that it was hard getting a table at breakfast time. The juices were nothing more than syrup with water but the food offered was plenty. Only white bread was offered which is not my thing and on Sunday there is less variety like there was no one to make omelets, no sweets and also they couldn't keep up with the crowd as bread wasn't replenished on time ..., cups, etc. read hotel review

Nice hotel for city breaks

In the neighborhood are only few restaurants and bars. The hotel itself is very cheap and clean, the breakfast buffet rich, the service friendly, the staff at reception cooperative. However I find the price for sauna and spa unfairly high. Our room was small but functional and well maintained, the mattresses were not worn out, the bathroom was very clean (shower). The rooms are however very badly soundproofed. Guests from different nations and of different ages mainly Russians, though. Internet and WiFi are free of charge. I can recommend Hotel Venera thoroughly, especially in respect to the ideal location for ... a city break. read hotel review
