This private Ottoman house is quietly situated in a cobblestone street, just a 7-minute walk from Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace. The hotel’s bar terrace overlooks the Marmara Sea.

Score from 35 reviews Very good
Ideally suited. Staff friendly and helpful
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.
It could have had loads more facilities but if it did the price of staying there would be much higher
Nothing at all
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
.Staff .budget friendly

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
Location,staff,breakfast, and cost.
Very basic .
- The owner; very helpful, very nice. He will help you to get anywhere you want in Istanbul. Great guy! - great location - very affordable
- most definitely not a 4 stars hotel - need refurbishing, notably in toilets - breakfast below average - we were lucky to have quiet neighbours in the next room, because you could hear them whisper...
Fernando was the sweetest man when he spoke to us. Very nice place with a great location. Breakfast can improve.
The location to the old city is excellent,staff are very helpful and obliging.Breakfasts are very good,the hotel is an older style with decor to suit,the whole stay was excellent value.So good, we are now returning to Istanbul for 4 more days and will stay there again.thanks Gareth .
Location is very close to blue mosque. Quite neighborhood.
Receptionist did not know how to check our reservation. When shown the printed receipt, he was finally able to find it. He then asked to deposit the passports of everyone in the group as a security. Breakfast was included in the price but nothing was available.
Neat and clean, exclusive location, very close to the main attractions Hagia Sophia and the blue mosque. The reception is very cooperative and is always trying to be helpful. Secluded street and quite and peaceful locality. Breakfast not bad, though the arrangement is quiet basic. Don't expect elaborate stuff, but that's ok considering the price.
The room could do with a little renovation. Room sizes are quite small with even smaller bathrooms. But that shouldn't matter really, coz the beauty is outside. But yes renovation is a must. The wall finishes are quite old. There was one scary experience though. When we came back in the evening after our day out, we were told that our rooms have been shifted due to some leakage problem. We were quite unnerved, because all out stuff had been shifted to this new room without our permission and we had left quite a few stuff unpacked. There was nothing valuable, but this is the last thing that you need to experience on a foreign trip, first day. We had a harrowing time trying to recollect if everything was shifted and that we were missing anything. I would advice the hotel management to refrain doing such things even if they consider it for their clients betterment. We lost a lot of confidence due to this one act.
Friendly staff, centrally located for sights.
The European side of town (Beyoglu) is much more "real" feeling vs. touristy, so check out hotels in Pera area if you want to experience that.
A great location with very friendly, informed staff.
The smell of cats at the entry
Very accomodative and helpful staff. Value for money.
The location was excellent, friendly staff
Smell of cats urine in corridors and public areas, tired decor, leaking roof in breakfast area. Electrical wires hanging out of wall with live plugs
