The concierge on duty on our arrival was particularly delightful and witty. All staff very accommodating. The room was sensational.
location & staff
no swimming pool
what i liked was almost everything. breakfast was very good there was a variety of food.staff were helpful all the time. rooms are very clean . tools were available for shower or for minibar drinks. balcony wasn't that of a seaview since the hotel is only 3 floors hight.A.C. was fair enough.
do not follow the tour guider there at the reception. they recommended a seafood restaurant who steel us and made us pay by euro currency. 4 dishes for 350 euros flipping the menus before and after eating. maybe the hotel have a percentage out of it. rooms are too small. on booking they look wild and comfortable but actually they are small in a way u don't have any extra space to put your luggage anywhere. plus , the cabentes were very very small and cant put in eve half of ur stuff. there is abuilding B behind the hotel it also refers to the byzantium hotel but its is worse than the main building and it is extra small builiding in a way it is very hard to reach from inside the buidling itself. there is a basement floor in which there are cheap rooms there. so if ur booking the cheap room be sure ull stay on the basement where the weather and air is at the worst situation. many times we asked the reception to wake us up for our early tours but unfortunately noone alert us at all.none ! they have a problemon their A.C. on the lubby area. thank u
Rooms space. Clean. Air cond. Wifi was the best of all hotels I stayed in.
No pathroom in the suite even it was mentioned in booking.com. Only shower room but good and clean. Spa entery is for one time only during your stay.
Poor air conditioning
The hotel is located near sultanahmet square,staff were all helpful and willing to assist anytime.it has really nothing much to provide comparing to other hotel i have been to but its considered fair if you hit the street all day long to explore the historical area. There was a laday called Esra,she was helpful and polite
Very small rooms and poor air condition in JUL AND AUG.restaurants down da street rip u off
Excellent hotel staff welcome and service. Super restaurant with nice wine and good food at the top floor with excellent views to Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia.
All the staff especially the guest manager (Esra) are very helpful and welcoming. The hotel is located in a street which you can find many restaurants and bars around with just 5-10 minutes walk to Sultanahmet. We have booked a double room with a crab for our 3 y/o boy. They gave us a family room without extra charge!! The buffet breakfast is great.
Although it is not about the hotel, it is somehow far from Taksim and the modern shopping centers if you are looking for!
The Hotel is located in the Sultanamet area, close to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and the Topaki Palace. The staff were very professional greeting us on arrival, responded promptly to our requests and a number of them farewelled us on the street when we departed. (We only stayed one night) We received an upgrade to a suite which was spacious, well presented and had views over the water. The hotel is located on a street full of restaurants so you are spoilt for choice when it comes to dinner.
The bar area on the roof is fairly small and however it has nice views. The complimentary drink voucher given to us on arrival turned out to cover only soft drink.
Great location in Sultanahmet. Friendly desk staff, attractive lobby and decor. Good breakfast selections.
We were 2 couples traveling together. The hotel had overbooked so the first night both couples were bumped to another hotel, that the manager said he found my searching for availability online. That hotel had a cigarette smoke smell everywhere and mold in the showers (plus the strangest decor I've ever seen). The Byzantium did give us an upgraded room (very nice) the next night, but the experience was not a good one overall.
The staff were very helpful. Breakfast was a great selection of traditional and western food selections. The room we stayed in was small but well appointed with modern bathroom and bed furnishings. The street is lovely with lots of restaurants and cobble stones, within easy walking distance of everything.
Excellent service and location
Location was very good. in the middle of everywhere. The staff was very good and helpful.
It's in a nice location middle of the historical places and u don't need to spend more on taxi to tour around.The staff is cooperative .we recommend to all our friends and for surely when even I come there I gonna stay there.
This was a really great hotel with a very central location for the Blue mosque and other places of interest in the old quarter. We dis not get to the spa but were offered a 1 hour session for free. The Wifi was good and the hour spent on the roof top terrace especially good. The restaurant breakfast had everything one could have wished for. Overall we wanted to return to this hotel.
The sea view from bedroom and helpfulness of staff
The wifi wasn't good and kept disconnecting in room.
Very good location - and clean
Staff Breakfast Location
Sewage smell in the room
am food nice staff
some bad smell in the older section of the building
Location was great. Close to all the historical places, the staff very friendly and helpful.
The rooms are small.
A plug for the washing basin would have been very useful since all travelers need to do some washing. And at breakfast perhaps a few buns or fruit to take along for lunch!
The Byzantium Hotel is in excellent location and within walking distance to Topkapi Palace, St.Sophia, Blue Mosque and all other tourist attractions...
There was an unpleasant smell in basement, A/c was not working properly.
