Staff, breakfast, location
Great location, helpful staff, nice room.
Poor soundproofing especially in the bathroom.
Friendly and helpful staff, great location, breakfast with plenty of options, clean and comfortable room if a bit on the small side, even a strong wifi signal in the room for once.
Great location, with very nice traditional restaurants around, very close to Topkapi, hagia Sophia and Blue Mosche.
Excellent location, excellent breakfast, good staff service very kind, room in excellent conditions
I didn't like the pillow of the bed. The street is a little bit noisy (mostly when a car passes by), but once you shut the windows it isolates the noise.
good place just in sultanahmet and near the blue mosque, elagant but small room with iznik-tiles decoration, homemade breakfast.
The majority of things with this hotel were great and I had no issues really
Only one thing was that depending on your room a few are a bit small but other than that it has no issues.
Location, right in the heart of the old town close to Blue Mosque. Good breakfast, good sized room, clean, friendly staff. Would stay again.
Great location, cleanliness, buffet breakfast. Small kilim rugs in room also a nice touch. Very helpful and friendly primary desk guy (a Kevin Klein look-alike).
A ventilation shaft set in the bathroom wall allowed for conversation in adjacent room to be perfectly audible. Room size was also tight for our longer stay. Non-primary desk guy not very friendly.
The management and staff could not be faulted. The room was clean, modern and well equipped. The breakfast provided all you could ask for.
An unusual ventilation shaft in the bathroom. A good way to hear other guests conversations, arguments or to communicate with other guests. Not a problem at night if you close the bathroom door.
Very good location, helpful and polite staff, the room are big enough and very clean
The room was tiny nowhere to put your suitcase
10 min walk to many of the major sites, Clean, Very friendly and attentive service, Good Breakfast with some fresh cooked options available, Many many shops and restaurants nearby. Really loved it overall.
Some people may find that having no lift/elevator could be a problem. Also our room was on the top floor (4th). Being on the top floor the room was very warm and the AC was very very weak. It took ages to cool down the room.
Staff Breakfast beds Shower Patio out front to enjoy the evening Quiet Location. Excellent
It was great.
Great location close to all the top sights in the old town and near to metro for exploring other areas. Hotel kept very clean. Staff really friendly and helpful.
Could hear neighbours through vent in bathroom. Breakfast average.
This is a great hotel in a great location. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Good internet and a/c. I highly recommend this hotel.
We stayed three nights. Very comfortable stay. Location is excellent just behind the Blue Mosque. Plenty of restaurants in the street. We had quiet room at the back if you want one just ask. Breakfast was very good.
Room not large but adequate size
The hotel is close to the most important sights and is located on the street with great restaurants.
The staff is very kind and helpful in suggesting us what-to-do and where-to-eat in Istanbul. They understand also a little bit of Italian. We weren't able to find an Istanbulkart (the magnetic card to use for the public transport, such as tram or ship), and the kind receptionist gave us his own card as a gift. This act of kindness (even if not about a big deal) shows us the quality of the hotel. A generous breakfast, served fresh every morning (both salty and sweet), helps you to begin better the day. The position is what we prefer: exactly behind the Blue Mosque (this is a pro, but also a con, since you hear the Muezzin's shout in the early morning and in the late night).
The air shaft is linked with the one of the bedroom beside. You can hear a light noise coming from there. This is not a big issue, but, in order to reach the perfection, it can be fixed.
Location is fantastic, very close to most of the key attractions (hagia Sofia, blue mosque, cistern), restaurants, laid back bars, and sultanahmet tram stop. The room was small but tastefully decorated and clean. Facilities are basic but standard for a bnb. WiFi is great. Customer service is fantastic.
We stayed in double room which was quite small. Not a problem for us but would be if you travel with lots of luggage.
Fantastic location in Sultanahmet, short walk to the great sights of Istanbul. Very clean rooms and the breakfast buffet is lovely. Mahir, who usually tends the front desk is a pleasant gentleman who will give good recommendations and advice. Good wifi signal in bedrooms.
Small rooms and bathrooms although expected by European standards. Plus it is in a quaint old building in a a fabulously byzantine part of town !
I stayed here with my mum for 2 days and then myself for one. The hotel is extremely close to Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Moreover, it is extremely clean too. Though ppl complained about the small bathroom, I am actually surprising to find that the bathroom is definitely on the big side during our stay in Turkey, but the price is definitely on the cheap side. The breakfast is delicious, all staff are very nice and friendly. All in all, I would totally recommend this hotel to just anyone who wants to visit Istanbul.
If you don't know the way, it could be a bit tricky to get around the small alleys in the old town to get to the hotel.
We were on the four-day holiday in Istanbul - my wife, my mother-in-law and myself. Hotel Novano is the best place for stay here, because you enjoy everything - the convenient location for sightseeing, wonderful restaurants, shopping and friendly staff at the hotel, who are a great help in all situations. We have enjoyed clean rooms and good breakfast. In case we are in Istanbul again, we will be sure to be back at this cosy and comfortable hotel. Thanks a lot to the whole Novano staff and special regards to Ali and Mahir, managers at the reception desk.
We would prefer the hotel to have an elevator.
The location was excellent, the staff were friendly, the rooms were clean, the beakfast was good.
There is no elevator, you can hear the other rooms, the shower of one of our rooms was broken, the blancket is so thin.
