Score from 247 reviews Excellent
The location, the view which is only good on third floor, and the staff. Loads of hot water and strong pressure.
Rooms are quite compact and minor things .
Friendly atmosphere, Wi-Fi, situated within a couple of minutes walk of good restaurants, Blue Mosque, Topkapi palace etc. Great views from terrace. very happy.
Noisy guests on ground floor, Have stayed up a couple of floors and much better there. No lift, tight, steep spiral up from ground. Not serious enough to stop me staying again.
Kaftan hotel is located in the center,old part of istanbul. It was very safe,and quite. Staff is great and very helpfull :-)
Family room is in the basement so if you do not like that be careful what you book. But still worth the money :)
The breakfast was memorable. The food selection was excellent. The breakfast room-on the top floor-had a commanding view of the water, part of the old city, and the Asian side of Istanbul. The location was excellent for the main tourist area of the city.
everything were the worst
small room and bathroom
It was close to all the main tourist attractions. Room was clean with AC. Staff were friendly and helpful.
Just 5 minutes from the blue mosque, we just needed to use the public transport to get to Taksim, a lot of restaurants near by to have dinner, staff was always very helpful, we went to Capadoccia and they kept our bags until we got back. Not only I recommend this hotel, but also I'll stay here the next time I''l visit Istanbul. Great AC, great Wi-fi
Our room was not cleaned two days in a row, but that was not exactly a problem.
Good location, nice view from the terrace, delicious breakfast, polite staff, clean rooms
perfect location to visit istanbul, staff always helpful and polite. breakfast overlooking the beautiful bosphorus
Room was clean. We had the smallest room and even there was air conditioning. We were looking for a place not far from old city center (Blue mosque, etc.) where we can sleep and leave our stuff, and this place meets perfectly with all our requirements. It is located in 3 mins walking from old city center. Breakfast is regular european-hotel's breakfast: eggs, cheese, coffee, etc.
Thin walls, you can hear if someone speaks loudly. Wi Fi is not very fast, but pretty stable.
In the city center, near to the tourist attractions
Small room, several problems with hot water and the eletricity.
The support from your staff
My room was a little too cramped
The location was great, the staff were very helpful and give great recommendations for places to visit and trips specially Ruhin & Araz, they helped alot. and the place was cozy with daily cleaning special thanks for Aydin & Neriman
The room size was small and the bathroom was smaller :)
Perfect position. Very friendly staff. Very good price. Good WiFi connection.
Rooms are very very small. No sound insulation, so you can hear everything from other rooms and corridor. The curtains don't block the light in the morning. The shower wasn't very clean. Breakfast is always the same and not very good.
breakfast and scenery great location great good value for the money
the bathroom door was not closing at all some bugs in the rooms
Friendly Staff Good location
Small Rooms ad too cramped Not good air conditioning
The hotel staff were very kind. Helped us book tables at restaurants.
Location was great, just a few steps from the Blue Mosque. Staff was also very nice and always willing to help you. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.
Nothing really... Maybe the cistern wasn´t working properly and the water kept running for a long time.
Fantastic location 5 min walk from the Blue Mosque, in an interesting and long lived-in neighbourhood. We were made to feel very welcome, and staff were very helpful. Great breakfasts on the rooftop terrace, with lovely sea views. We chose to book a room with sea views, which was gave a great feeling of space. Comfortable bed. Room well serviced daily. Wifi in the room worked perfectly. A small problem with the shower was fixed immediately. We hope we can stay here again next time in Istanbul.
tres bien situe tres propre tres sympa
Exceptional staff! Most lovely, friendly personnel.
Shower needed updating, although clean, room was small.
Location!! Near Main atractions..very nice staff.
Great location, good hot water and showers. Staff friendly and helpful. Very clean and comfortable.
The Hotel has a really good location since it is a few minitues walking distance from the main Istanbul monuments. Personal is very very kind, most of them speak English so the comunication was not a problem.
Well, is does not look as nice as the pictures show! The room was somehow bad but clean. There is no such a nice look from the window as it is described. W-Lan signal was very bad. The breakfast was the same every day!
