Location, Staff and cleanness
Breakfast after 9.30 could be better..
They transfer us to viva deulce hotel , it's so clean and quite,the hotel near to guluhana and sercigai station
breakfast not that good ,they serve all cold theing and only the agg is hot
Size of room and bathroom is small
hotel in very good located place Sirkeci . Very close tram station, metro station, spice bazar and sea shipp taxi. Staff always was smily, friendly, and carefull. Room is really clean and comfortable, in specialy quadra room. Teasty brekfast bufet,
was low interner signal.
The location is probably the best you can find, the personnel is very helpful, breakfast is moderate, but satisfying. Although the hotel is not extraordinary, it is my choice for quite some time now, as you don't visit Istanbul to waste the time in the hotel. Viva is perfect for just that: shower, confortable sleeping, morning snack and... off you venture into the city! Cleanliness is good, though it can get improvement.
Some rooms can be a bit noisy, but that's the case for 99% of the hotels in Sultanahmet. Also, the walls aren't exactly thick, so if you have loud neighbours, you'd better be pacient. Again, that is the case for most of the hotels in that area. The bathroom furniture and all coud use some extra care, but they are not in need for repairing. They work just fine. All in all, it is a good choice if you're on a low budget.
Friendly and Helpful Staff. Walking distance to most main attractions and shopping areas of Istanbul.
Rooms are small and a little tight.
Anything abaut hotel,look like hostel,breakfast bed.i like location.
I do not like anything abaut this hotel.
Friendly and helpful staff, breakfasts were great and always something new, location fantastic, Viva Restaurant just up the road (same owner)
Twin room slightly small but we managed. Only dislike was that the water leaked badly from the shower so the tiles in the bathroom were always wet!
Most staff speak english.they are helpfull...specially Mr.Zafer.
It is noisy area.
the facilities are very old and the quilt is full of bad smell.
Very easy walk to most places. Staff were very welcoming and helpful. I would stay here again.
Very small room
Location was great..,staff were very friendly and helpful ...special thanx to Zafar and Changiz... Value for money ...
The maximum size of double room was 15m2 but in the information they informe that it is 25m2 ...
Location is ideal for all major attractions and within a walking distance. Surrounded by small restaurants and sweet shops, you will be introduced to all variations with minimal effect on your pockets. Safe area as well. Highly recommend for a short stay of few days to explore Istanbul.
Relatively small sized rooms otherwise acceptable.
The size of the rooms (parents and eight and eleven years old in one room and the two young adults in the other), the private and affordable shuttle from and to the airport, the wide choice of food at breakfast, the friendly portier, the excellent location with everything within walking distance, the many restaurants just across the street and around the corner.
The hotel was rather plain, but cheap and it definitely provided what we needed. It was a little noisy as long as the restaurants were open, but the airconditon allowed us to shut the windows without any great loss of comfort.
Staff was accommodating in providing us a room and breakfast despite a 6am arrival. Excellent location with food, shopping, tram and culture centre close by. Convenient airport pickup on location Comfortable, roomy family bedroom
Crowded breakfast place. Bad WiFi on 5th floor family room.
1)Hotel offers reasonable airport transfer arrangements 2) Great location. You can reach all touristic places by tram or walking. No need to hire van or private tours. 3) Hotel has lift facility
1) Average breakfast with limited seats available during peak period 2) Hotel reception mislead us on information that bazaar is open on Sunday. 3) Shower leaking causing water flood in the toilet. 4) Very slow wifi
Location-near to places of interests
The people there is highest value of the hotel, very cooperative and you feel they are really and honestly enjoying your surve, Entilegent location, all what you need nearby, enjoooooy
As comparing to.price in istanbul with facility is not really ok.
Services are not wat i.like
Location is excellent. Walking distance to all the tourist attractions. Friendly staff. Thank you!!
