Hospitality. Staff and the owner were very nice and homely
All the rest
staff gave us the best welcome, location, convenience, shower was great
rooms were a bit small
If you're looking for a great place to stay whilst on a budget then this is the place. Centrally located to all major tourist attractions with great service and very helpful, friendly and honest staff! Especially Mr. Ayaz and Mr. Feyaz. They are very attentive and extremely helpful. They provide a fresh and well varied breakfast every morning. Rooms were cleaned daily and the wifi worked very well throughout our stay. We had a delightful 7 day stay and I would definitely recommend family hotel to anyone.
Excellent service, perfect location
location staff was excellent free breakfast Room made up daily Small fridge was nice did I say location?
Smaller than I thought it would be Only Room is air conditioned, not breakfast area
the staff was very friendly and helped me in many things the location was close to every thing sure i will go back again
some times you outside noise is noisy in the room
rich breakfast buffet, very close to the historical center
small room full of furniture (we got room with double bed and bunk bed-totally 4 beds, but we were only two), quite elderly bathroom
Kind and helpfull staff. Excellent position. I really reccomend it.
F u r looking for a good hotel in Istanbul choose Family Istanbul! A wonderful place, very very very kind, good people in the hotel and of course fantastic Istanbul!! Hotel is very near to the Blue mosque and another "must see" places! P.S. If U love " Muhteşem Yüzyıl" (the magnificent century) U will be surprised cz the owner of the hotel is look like........SULTAN SYLEIMAN it is the bonus from the hotel)))
Very friendly and helpful staff :) We felt like we were at home with them. The location is great and easy to find.
The name of the property describes very well the way we were treated. The owner and staff are extremely kind and nice. The location is central, a few steps from hystorical centre and all means of public transport, which in Istanbul is very well organized.
very pleasant owner, located a bit off the main Sultanahmet square but that makes it a quieter place, breakfast spread was good
very very small rooms, no hooks to hang clothes, no lock to bathroom door from inside, shower settings very bad, room lightening was bad, place is a bit run down and in need of repair. Price was not very low despite this
Location, breakfast, Super friendly, Sitting area, Shower good when warm
Hot water? Don't know if it was only on during certain times of day?
The hospitality we recieved from the hotel staff was superb. They really made is feel at home. The location was in the center of all the tourist attractions. The rooms were clean and comfy. I would stay at this hotel next time I'm in istabul and would recommend it to all my friends and family.
Walking uphill to get to some of the tourist attractions. But in a place like Istanbul, you're always going to be walking up hill one way or another.
Great allocation, extremely friendly stuff, nice conditions for active travellers
Staff were really helpful nothıng too much trouble. Lınen changed each day. We felt very safe and comfortable here whıch was nıce as we were two females
The staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent and very close to all historical places ,shops and restaurants Therefore, the location is suitable for those who wish to go shopping and visit the historical places.
We very much enjoyed our stay at Family House Istanbul. Although the hotel is not a luxury retreat, it is cozy enough for a group of friends looking for an afordable place to crash during their Istanbul getaway. And the location is great, close to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia and most of the other tourist attractions. Access by car was easy enough and we could park right in front of the hotel. The staff is very friendly and always willing to help or serve, whilst tea and coffee are available at any hour of the day or night, free of charge. If you are not a pompous arse, then i would definetly recommend the place! Also, right next to the hotel is a great place called the Raggae Bar, where you can enjoy delicious cocktails and good music till late in the night. You simply must go there!
I can't say there was something i didin't like, at least not anything that can't be overlooked. Remember it is a budget hotel. If you want my advice, always order from the menu when dining in Istanbul. Don't let the restaurant staff choose for you, or else you might find yourself paying twice as much for the food.
One of the most nice people I ever met , very helpfull, friendly , the owner very good and nice person he speaks english too he helped us we really thanks him very much.. صاحب الفندق شخص رائع ..شكرا للمساعدة
Every thing ok...
The staff was great and very friendly and helpful, welcomed me with Turkish tea. Free tea and coffee any time, The room and the sheets were clean, they were cleaning my bathroom every day and I got fresh towels every day, Pretty good Turkish traditional breakfast, Good and pretty quiet location, close to Blue Mosque and Sultanahmet mosque and its attractions, and very safe, Internet was fast. My best regards to the staff
Initially it was a shock when I saw the 8.1 hotel I booked. It is not luxurious, not even moderate. The breakfast can not be categorized as basic, but you do not die of hunger.
The room looks like somebody did something today, remember that did not finish it and come back to do it still partially after 1 month. But it is clean and the towels are changed every day. It is a pity that such a good location it has, but so low quality. I was very angry because of the rate provided by Booking as 8.1. It is a hotel that deserve a 6.
Very nice location. Staff very polite. Excellent value for money! A good place to stay if u dont care about much luxury, very clean what is the most important for me!
What you pay is actually what you get - basic place but OK for the price. Rooms are small but slightly bigger than other in that old area. Breakfast was OK. Friendly staff. Strategic place, one of the closest to Blue Mosque (that was my 8th stay in that area). Easy to park even a big car and for free as well.
Pictures are misleading and the 8+ rating is just too much. My credit card wasn't accepted contrary to what is announced - had to collect all my change to pay without any paper in exchange.
The staff is very friendly and helpful . My best regards to the staff so as my family
It would've be better with taking care of minor things such as hungers in bathrooms and few small things
