We loved the welcoming atmosphere, the apple tea they offered and the smile of people working there. It is just next to Blue Mosche and near to touristic stuff.
Our door couldn't lock and the sheets the first day weren't very clean
Near the old town city !! and the staf was very frendly .
old building .... the water was cold no warm ... very small rooms ... very bad wi-fi ...
The location is excellent, and the staff are very friendly. We felt very welcome as a family with young children.
It was not terribly clean; it's the level of cleanliness you might expect from a hostel.
Very good Breakfast, the staff very friendly and good apple tea. Good location,very close to Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia
The toilet very small.
We hightly recommend this hostel. Great location, reasonable price (including breakfast) and extremely professional, kind and helpful staff.
This hostel needs just a little renovation:)
Very helpful and friendly staff. Location is great. Very near historical center in safe area.
One star quality cleanliness, rooms and linens but can't beat the price if you are not picky.
The staff was very kind and helpful, they gave us a lot of information about the city. Family Istanbul is located literally in the heart of Istanbul :)
Friendly staff Location All that you need for a few days of traveling
A little bit noisy
good food, great location around 10 minutes to Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia.
Our room was near reception, even that wi-fi was not working or we had problems with connection
Great location with nice service and delicious breakfast. I was so comfortable here. 숙소 위치 좋고 직원들 친절하고 아침 깔끔하게 잘 나옵니다. 가격대비 만족할만 합니다.
Nothing to complain, really. 6일이나 여기 묵었어요 ㅎㅎ
Perfect stuff, amazing location, unbelievable price-performance ratio :)
Not clean ...
Room is so small and during shower time the shower head was broken water can not control be every where and then power outage, I can see nothing!
Location,WiFi, Spacious room, Value for money. The highlight of the stay was Ayvaz, the owner, who provided excellent advice and was always ready for a chat after a day of sightseeing. He gave the best suggestion to visit Eyup Sultan, a place which I hadn't heard of, and ended up being one of my favourite spots in Istanbul. Ayvaz even sent an email bidding us goodbye as we did not meet on check out. Overall I am very happy with the service and would not hesitate to stay here again.
Going up and down the spiral staircase with a heavy suitcase. In their favour, they did have a staff member who helped.
Very good loacation. Very warm-hearted staff
no wifi in the room
The location is great, 800 m from Ayasofia and blue Mosque, its a quiet place, lots of tourists in the area, the hotel has free parking spots and the staff is pleasant and helpful. The breakfast is fine.
The room is small but comfortable.
We stayed for five nights and liked it. The personal is very friendly and very helpful. The room was small but enough and comfortable. All the important locations were not far away from the hotel. All in all it was a great holiday with the family.
-Excellent location, with Sultan Ahmet, Hagia Sphia, and Topaki place very near. Plus the sea, markets and good restaurants near-by; all the stated are walking distance. -Family istanbul, the owner Owais, and his team Fayyaz, Ismaeel, and Jamila, were all very friendly, kind, hospitable and helpful. Thus, making stay stay even more enjoyable. -Good hotel services.
It is at idle location and above all the staff was very friendly and able to speak English. We cannot forget the traditional breakfast. Above all it was worth to money.
The manager of the hotel is very friendly and helpful Strategic location, close to all historical monuments The price is acceptable The hotel is nice overall, but I would not recommend for couples on honeymoon, it will be suitable for young explorers, globetrotters and travel with friends.
The pictures of the rooms in the Booking.com website does not apply to the room where I spent my stay. Very simple breakfast, basic and it's always the same thing, you will definitely get used to take your breakfast outside. The WC is loudy when pulling the flush Full of water leak in the bathroom Bed linen and duvets exchange every 3 or 4 days! Television chains in Turkish only
Location, owner is amazing, simple and good value for money
Bathroom could be better.
Great location, value for money and very nice, accommodating, helpful owner and staff. Highly recommended for those who'd want a decent BnB while visiting Istanbul city.
Nothing that we can think of, but should consider providing better instruction/map (in the web) or some landmarks to the place. We had to spend hours just to locate and finally reach there upon arrival.
- good location - friendly personnel - meeting at the airport
- location (If you use tram get off on Sultanahmet station and use google maps) - friendly and helpful staff, keen to help - heating (and airconditioning) - always hot water - bed comfort - clean towels every day - soap and shampoo in bathroom - possibility of airport shuttle - TV in room Some rooms are completely new and have bathroom ventilation.
- somewhat noisy environment (no sound isolation) - cleanliness of blankets and bedsheets - bathroom ventilation and cleanliness - dusty furniture Some other rooms are old without ventilation in bathroom. If you get room on the ground floor keep windows closed or mice could get in! Photos of rooms are not quite correct.
Staff were very nice and friendly all the time! Ivas is a really nice person! Location is perfect for it takes only 5 minutes to get to Sultanahmed and Ayasofia! Also close to tram station to Kabatas (boat station to Princess Islands and funicular to Taksim )
We experienced constant problems with Wi-Fi access, not crucial though
