The rooms are a bit small but cosy.
Above all, this hotel makes the difference by the sympathy of its staff, particularly its receptionist. The location is ideal and the room are really clean.

Getting to the hotel is a little scary at night with the street its on.

At 3rd floor the quality of WiFi is low. It's not luxury at all, which may seem from photos on Booking.com, but rather cosy family place where you would feel like home.
Excellent location. Quiet. 3 min walk to blue mosque, 4 min to Aya Sofya (for young). Fantastic staff, friendly and really care about their clients. Value for money. At reasonable price you get nice clean room, descent breakfast, WiFi, abovementioned location and service.

When it rained the ceiling leaked and dripped water in the bathroom around the toilet bowl so when I used the toilet I would get periodic splashes of water from ceiling (room was on top floor)
Loved the breakfast. The man at the front desk was super nice and helpful with luggage, door and everything. Definitely good value for the money.

Old wooden room doors wich make a lot of noice and walls aren't sound proof, bad luck if you have loud people in the room next to you.
Great location, very close to blue mosque, hagia sof., topkapi p. Breakfast was really good and stuff was nice.

There is a laptop available for guests, but the display isn't in English, though virtually all their guests are English speaking. They tried to change it to English, but couldn't. It would be nice if the hotel banned smoking, but second-hand smoke is unavoidable in Istanbul. It makes one appreciate the good sense of anti-smoking laws in the U.S.
1. The breakfast terrace in the back is stunningly landscaped, framed by a hundred-foot high natural cliff in the rear and beautiful gardens. Everyone also enjoyed the kittens that live there and are cared for by the hotel. 2. Mehmet the "concierge" who manned the front desk was helpful and delightful. Other staff was friendly, too. 3. The area is great and walking distance to the Blue Mosque, Topkapi, the cistern, Hagia Sofia, and many restaurants.

Nice little hotel, very nice people on reception desk, at breakfast and tiding the rooms. This hotel can't offer the standard of these big international business hotels, however you'll know the staff very soon, and all of them will know you too. They'll tell you where to go, what to see and what to avoid. We liked the roofgarden (we drank a bottle of red there, watching ships passing by, safely protected by the Blue Mosque. I was the 100% right hotel for us!!!

Can't think of anything really crucial.
Really good breakfast, each morning a little bit different, so - variety. Nice rooms. Liked the mattress - not too soft. Awesome shower cabin. Beautiful patio where you have your breakfast. Very nice staff.

Cleanlin es is a bit on the low site, meaning they clean the rooms every day but... not that thorough. They also do your bed but... not change the bed sheets even when you ask for.
Located in the core of Istambul, you need only minutes for the major interest points. Staff is polite and very helpfull. Fair price for the rooms.

The noise from over the street mosque at 3:45 in the morning
Location Staff Breakfast Surroundings are quiet at night, very close to main attractions like Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, Topkapi Palace, Archaeology museum and the Cisterns

small room, not detailed cleaning

The one small negative has that the pillows were past their use-by & pretty lumpy and the bed really hard. Otherwise all fantastic.
Hotel Sphendon was great. Very quaint, delightful room, excellent breakfast, helpful staff, quiet, perfect location. Really nice to come back to at the end of the day. Good value. I would definitely stay again.
