    Good location to start exploring the city in various directions, the room with the balcony has a very nice view and is perfect if you do not expect too much comfort. The room has a fridge and the kitchen on the floor can be used if needed. Rasim (the owner) is very friendly and helpful. A bit difficult to find, however as stated in the previous comments the taxi driver made a call, make sure to take the number with you.

    The owner was nice and helpful Full security Car parked right outside and had security camera on it all night I'd stay here again

    The area at first was a bit concerning but the accomadation was very nice .the local shops were apart of the charm. A little difficult to find

    we had the room with the balcony, very nice staff, a feeling of an apartment more than a room, because of the kitchen available in the hall, nice location quite near to the Old Town, 20 minutes by walking. very lively nice neigbourhood, feeling of living among the ordinary people, many little shops and cheap restaurants, a poor area, for people not afraid of many cars, cats and locals hanging around everywhere, for us it was perfect to experience that sort of thing, very simple room but cosy

    only a blanket with no bedsheet on it, a simple room

    Very good and helpful service. Staff was very friendly and helped us at any time (during the night, very early in the morning). This was a very outstanding service. Staff can also organise a cheap taxi to the airport and negotiate good prices. We received tea and cookies. Staff also waits for you if you arrive very late at night (but you have to let them know). The room was very clean and offered great value for the money. The bathroom was clean and there was also a small kitchen (we didn't use). Wifi was working well. It is around 1km from the main sights, a distance which is easily walkable. There are also busses and taxis are very cheap. The surrounding area of Balat residence itself is not touristic, instead it is rather traditional (and that is really nice). It might be a bit difficult for a taxi driver to find the place (as the city is so big) but normally the drivers call the residence and ask how to get there. Anyway, you can also tell the driver to drop you at Balat bus station or Fener bus station. No problem at all! Overall, we had a great time at Balat Residence and in Istanbul and can fully recommend this place!!!

    Kind people, ready to help you; quiet place, nice room, good value for money; very close bus stop with direct line to Taksim. We recommend this hotel.

    One detail: no hairdryer (maybe available in other rooms) Can be difficult to find on arrival by night (no big indication of hotel outside)

    Very comfortable bed. We liked the aesthetic of the brick wall. Great value for money.

    A bit hard to find, but to be fair our taxi-driver was rather incompetent. Would have been nice to get fresh towels at least after a couple of days.

    Very good service! The staff helped us with so many things, and even offered us a present when we left. Excellent price/quality.

    Location is good, but can be confusing for the first time you get there.

    It is a new hotel, quite good for not high price.The rooms are clean, facilities are new, the personnel is very attentive, responsive and nice (but purely speak english).Relatively nice location: 4-5 bus stops to Eminönü (Galata bridge).

    WiFi doesn't work properly: very weak signal and often shuts down. Air condition is not enough to heat a room in a winter time. It is necessary to ask personnel every day to turn on the heating battery system, otherwise it is too cold in the night.

    Rasim - the owner of the residence - was always smiling and very helpful. He speaks English,so it was easy to communicate. Price-quality ratio is perfect. Hotel is new, rooms are very fresh and the same as in pictures. We felt very welcomed in this place. Rasim's mother prepares delicious Turkish coffee!:) We recommend you this hotel. No doubt, Rasim will do his best to make your stay in Istanbul very comfortable.

    Sometimes we had problem with wi-fi connection. But we didn't really need it, so it was ok.
