About Hotel Buyuk Keban, Istanbul

Stylish Istanbul hotel with free WiFi, near a Roman aqueduct

Off Atatürk Boulevard

Hotel Buyuk Keban puts you in the center of Fatih, only 3 blocks from main artery Atatürk Boulevard. Istanbul University is just around the corner, and it's a 7-minute walk south to Aksaray Station for trams to the Grand Bazaar, Sultanahmet, and across the water to Beyoğlu.

Valens Aqueduct nearby

Cars driving along Atatürk Boulevard pass under the stone arches of the Valens Aqueduct, a Roman relic that's only a 10-minute walk away. The aqueduct runs beside Saraçhane Park and the 16th-century Sehzade Mosque, or you take a 9-minute taxi ride to the famed Blue Mosque.

Turkish bath, 24-hour bar

Guests enjoy starting the day with a free breakfast of scrambled eggs, salami, fresh vegetables, and cheeses in the restaurant. You can wrap up a long day of sightseeing with a nightcap in the 24-hour bar, or relax in the hotel's Turkish bath, hot tub, or massage rooms.

Minibars, free WiFi

Air-conditioned guestrooms have a sleek feel with modern furnishings and cheery green accents. You can wind down with a beverage from the minibar. Flat-screen TVs come with satellite channels, and free WiFi keeps you connected.

i will Always stay in Buyuk Keban
I don't think I can stay in any hotel in Istanbul than Buyuk Keban, the metainance of the hotel when I was there in 2014 is still the same. The Receptionist and Concierge are always ready to help you. Neighbourhood is safe you can walk anytime at Night. The main reason why I liked Buyuk Keban is because of the Neatness and the Environment no odour like most hotel in Istanbul if is not 4 or 5 Star.

Happy with hotel
Staff service was always friendly and helpful. We arrived on an early morning flight, and although we were 6 hours earlier than check-in time they gave us the room we wanted and invited us to have breakfast. Rooms are small but adequate. The daily mopping of the room floor (uncarpeted) could have been better, otherwise the room was cleaned and towels changed daily. We enjoyed the salads and breads breakfast. Location is only 15 min walk from an easy Metro ride from the airport, and virtually on the tram route through the old town. We have used this hotel before, and would stay there again.

Идеально для семьи
В этом отеле мне все понравилось. Если вы, как и мы, путешествуете с 2-мя детьми, будет идеально. Одна спальня с двумя раздельными кроватями для детей и отдельная спальня с большой двуспальной кроватью для родителей. Улица тихая и район безопасный.

Original review:
"Perfect for a family"
I loved everything about this hotel. If you are traveling with 2 kids like us, it was perfect. One bedroom with twin beds for the kids and a separate bedroom with a queen bed for a couple. Quite street in a safe area.
