Overbooking on 1st night, had to go to another hotel with rather terrible room
Attention from staff was good
The breakfast is excellent
Room wasn't cleaned properly.
The guys were very friendly, helpful & polite. Attractions within walking distance. Weather very good.
They are small hotel, is not luxury but stuff is very kind and usefull, the rooms are clean and breakfest is good. They situated near everything you need. Very cleanest, charming and quite part od Istanbul
Laid-back, very friendly and helpful host. Location was great, walking distance of Blue Mosque/Hagia Sophia/Topkapi Palace. Quiet street, but loads of nice restaurants nearby.
Small hotel and the breakfast for 7 days , always the same there's not too many choices
* The hotel always with a good smell in the room , corridor and the receipt * People are so nice with us , the receptionist gave us his ' Istanbul Card' to use it during the stay and a map *Staff always smilling
Great location! Nice and friendly staff
Very good value for money. The owner was very friendly,nice,willing to help,funny. We totally loved him and his place.
Nothing really - even slept through the Callings from The Mosques
Location great - right beside the Blue Mosque, plenty bars and dining out places , can't comment of breakfast as we missed it, basic accommodation - just what we needed and cheap as chips
In need of some loving care, bathroom full of mold, toilet rocked. Sockets hanging from walls. floors uneven under ragged carpets. Library is just one shelve of books ( maybe 14 total). Breakfast buffet is a very small selection, in a small terrace room with torn dirty plastic tablecloths. In need of a lot of loving care.
staff was friendly and helpful. Location was Great. Beautiful old building.
great location at budget price
Buffet breakfast is served on the rooftop. Since my booking mentioned "buffet", I expected more. However, I was disappointed with their buffet breakfast. There was coffee, tea, drinking water, bread, hardboiled eggs, marinated olives and crudités. I'm not sure if this a traditional Turkish breakfast, but the options were disappointing. By 10AM, my friend and I decided to head out again. Upon our exit, I saw Mili, the manager, at the reception, and we greeted each other 'good morning'. I asked him if there will be housecleaning, and he said yes. Outside the hotel, my friend and I stopped by the garden for a brief photo-op/selfie. A few minutes passed, Mili went out to the garden, smiling and asked me if it's OK to move us to a different room because there's a new booking for triple sharing and he can only give the room we're currently occupying to the new booking customers. He sounded kind (at first) and asked me again if it's OK and they will do the transfer of our stuff to the other room. I acknowledged his query and replied with a friendly smile that I'd like to stay in the same room because that's what was given to us, and with our things messed in the room, it would be of total inconvenience to transfer, plus with the limited time in Istanbul, we don't want to waste a few more hours just to re-pack our things because we need to transfer room. With my reply, Mili's smile went off and I could tell from his face that he didn't like my response. He said, OK and that he will check. He went back inside the hotel. Then after a minute, he went back to me again holding a copy of my booking details. At this moment, his approach wasn't of good stance. He was bragging to my face that the room I booked was the budget room and not the room where he gave us when we checked in so my friend and I should be transferred to the budget room in the ground floor.
Location in Sultanahmet; strong wi-fi in all areas of the hotel
My friend and I stayed 3night in this terrible hotel first of all the rooms pictures doesn t match with the reality, the room's wall is dirty (humidity) secondly we received the booking confirmation with the amount of 210 TRL and the receptionist asked us for an extra 50TRL . The staff is unfriendly and doesn't speak English
Ideally suited. Staff friendly and helpful
It could have had loads more facilities but if it did the price of staying there would be much higher
First time in Istanbul and found it in many ways to be on a par with Paris apart from it being cheaper. Apex hotel location could not have been better, five minutes walk to Blue Mosque. More of a guest house but with extremely helpful and likeable staff. It was also very good value.
The room was very small and dirty . The WC was broken and no water. The Wifi was poor .Breakfast was very poor . i dont recommended at all.
Nothing at all
First of all, the triple room was extremely small - a double and a single bed forced to fit into a claustrofobic space. There is no private parking, as it is specified in the hotel description. Just 3-4 parking places in front of the hotel. As the street was very narrow, we had the "surprise" of finding our car scratched. Poor breakfast, which had nothing in common with the famous turkish cuisine.
Apex Hotel is a fine choice for a sweet escape in Istanbul on a low budget. It's close to the main tourist attractions, in the heart of Sultanahmet old city. There are lots of local shops around, mini-markets, restaurants and cafes. The rooftop terrace offers a nice view to the Blue Mosque and the Marmara Sea. The staff was helpful, but they weren't so hospitable as we all know Turkish people usualy are.
Traffic.......it is a killer. If you are residing in the old town and stay there you are fine. Go into Istanbul City itself, you will incur traffic jam, traffic jam & traffic jams. Give your self "Lots" of time when staying there an going into The Old Town.
Unique location, would not have traded it with Hilton or Conrad Hotels, too far to go into the old town (special because of traffic jams) outdoor cafe's and restaurants (which are loots), all next to each other. Atmosphere plus, and right on the door step of all mosks & palaces. Would go back there any time.
.Staff .budget friendly
-Staff -Clenliness -Breakfast -Design -Refrigerator is good for warming you hands. -Bath is not comfortable at all.

Location of the hotel
No hot water for one night. Had to move rooms after 3 days. Curtain and railing came down on us. Bad breakfast and terrible terrace with no views. Credit card payment went through immediately after booking 3months prior to arrival.
The owner and the cleaning lady very good
Very basic .
