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.
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.
close to everything and friendly staff
room is tiny but this is usual in istanbul
Everything was perfect! Very nice staff :) Great value for your money! Best greetings from Finland!
We stayed an extended period of time at Hotel Novano (10 days) and have very little to complain about. The staff was friendly, the hotel was kept clean, much was within walking distance including some of the best restaurants (although we thought the restaurants were a bit overpriced). Hotel Novano was not. It was a good value.
Walking up to the top floor after walking around all day puts the finish line just that much further, but that is minor. The pillows were way too thick, but the staff got us new thinner ones after asking. The rooms ceilings are not high which makes the room size (which isn't big) seem even smaller.
The location was very convenient, close to the Blue Mosque and the Haghia Sophia. The staff was terrific, very friendly and helpful, booking shuttles from/to the airport, offering complimentary umbrellas during a torrential downpour, and more. The rooms were clean and nice, breakfast had a good variety, including eggs made to order. We would definitely stay here again.
Bathroom was a bit cramped and the walls were a little thin, but not enough to be a big problem.
Helpful and friendly reception.location is on the heart of the old city (sultanhamet).
We found that the bathroom is a little bit small.
The bed was a bit hard to sleep on.
I often visit Istanbul and the hotel has been my Istanbul Home for the last 3 visits and I will return again in future. I love the area around the hotel, the hotel is small but very cosy and excellent value for money. The staff (reception and in the dining room) is very polite and friendly, willing to assist in every possible way. The breakfast is good and the dining room is beautifully decorated. The free wifi is very good (fast and easy to connect) and the AC in the bedrooms exceptionally good. Thanks to the owner and staff for a lovely stay once again.
Nothing, liked everything.
Fantastic location. Friendly staff. Good breakfast included and value for money.
A little more hanging space would have been good, but fine for a 2 night stay.
Close to attractions. Quite easy to reach on foot from the tram. Enough places to eat to choose among. Friendly staff. Good breakfast.
The location is excelent, close to major attractions in Sultanahmet. The street is full of restaurants and cafes with great views from the top. The room was pretty clean.
The rooms are rather small. The pillows are awfull but the staff was helpful and they provided better ones on request. The towels are old and torn. More hangers would be nice especially for long stays.
Great location, good Breakfast, I definitely coming back here.
wall is thin...everything next door hearble...
The hotel staff is very kind and helpful. The service is great. The room is clean and cosy. The hotel is quiet. The hotel is 5 minutes from the Blue Mosque or St Sofia Basilica on foot (or 2 hours if you stop into the Arasta bazar on your way...)
very centrally located, very clean, friendly and helpful personell, , breakfast was a standard buffet but o.k., Sultanahmet is a very nice quarter at all
single room was fairly small, w-lan could have been faster, not quite easy to find the hotel at the first time when you are not familiar with Sultanahmet, probably a little bit to expensive referring to the room size and the provided services
absolutely everything,especially location, 5 min walking to everywhere !
Location amazing, staff so helpful, Ali the manager so friendly and helpful. Rooms perfect.
Location can't be neatness. We walked everywhere or took the tram. Street was great for restaurants and people watching. Staff could not have been more helpful.
Wifi came in and out
