The Nena occupies a historical building and is a small establishment offering a good level of service, set in nice surroundings and close to the main tourist sites.
It stands at the very heart of Sultanahmet, not far from the Blue mosque, and its restaurant terrace, where you can enjoy Turkish specialties and international cuisine, affords a wonderful view.
This is a pleasant and simple establishment.
The hotel is nestled within the Sultanahmet neighbourhood and is easily accessible from the Blue Mosque, either on foot or by taxi. The transfer to and from Atarük international airport will take around twenty minutes.
The tram network, which has stops all around the centre of Istanbul, provides a good alternative to your car for getting around.
With a clientele primarily consisting of Dutch, Italian, Austrian, American and Belgian tourists, the Nena is a small establishment, located at the very heart of a charming and lively neighbourhood.
In the square that surrounds the Blue Mosque you'll find many salep vendors: this is a vanilla and cinnamon-flavoured hot beverage, which is best enjoyed in the evening, when it's a little nippy out.
This is a small hotel decorated in a relatively old-fashioned and friendly style, located in the centre of Istanbul. It's been around for some years now, and could do with a touch of renovation here and there, but the level of service is impeccable and you're sure to enjoy your stay here.
Its interior conceals a covered garden, furnished with little glass-top tables, wrought iron chairs and vases. In summer, when the evenings get warmer, the terrace is opened up for special events.
This intimate hotel offers efficient service in an elegant setting. It occupies a relatively recent and well-maintained building, and the interior layout is cleverly thought out.
Yellow, gold and orange: these were the three colours chosen to decorate the rooms of the Nena. Although they're not huge, they're nevertheless very welcoming.
All the accommodation units are in the standard category (29 in total) and feature parquet flooring and a little balcony with a Greek-style rather kitsch pediment.
You won't be disappointed by the amenities and the level of comfort in the rooms. They include a TV set, a safe, an automatic air-conditioning system and toilets.
The only drawback is that the TV broadcasts very few channels.
The hotel's restaurant offers traditional cuisine, along with traditional recipes that will please an 'international' clientele.
The dining room and the terrace can seat approximately 80 guests at one time and afford a nice view of the Blue Mosque and a large portion of the old town. The terrace was renovated in 2010.
The Kebab, served in the form of a sandwich or a more hearty dish, features among the chef's favourites.
