I stayed at the byzantium hotel for 2 nights on business in january 2009 as the rate was very reasonable and ı was on a limited budget. for the price ı paid ı cannot fault the hotel. the location was very central, just around the corner from sultanahmet square. ı felt very safe walking around as a female on my own in the evening. the room ı was allocated was a twin for single occupancy, plenty large enough for one single person or two people sharing, and had a view over the bosphorus for which there was no supplement payable. the staff were extremely friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. my laptop did not work in my room but when ı asked for help someone came to my room immediately to assist. the only minor point ı would make is that the cupboard was quite small for two people sharing or for a longer stay than 2 nights. ın addition ı was allocated a room with shower and would have preferred a room with bath but it wasn't high on my wish list. ı am not sure whether any of the rooms have a bath instead of a shower. ı would certainly book the byzantium hotel again and intend to do so for my next business trip in may.
