Fantastic location. Able to see fireworks on new year's day from our room balcony. Very attentive and helpful staffs. Big and comfortable room for 3 people. Many shops around for food. Walking distance to major attractions such as Blue Mosque, Haiya Sophia, Topkapi, Grand Bazaar ,Spice Market, Islamic Museums, Basilica Cistern and more. Nice restaurants for dinning in as well.
The room is not sound proof. Noise from the roof top restaurant and the sound of water sort of licking in between concrete walls was so annoying. Water pressure for showering very low and at times it stop completely. Heater in the bathroom not working. Spread of breakfast can be better but view from the roof top restaurant were amazing .
Отличное расположение, 2 минуты до площади Султанахмет по пешеходной улице. Комфортные номера, удобные кровати. Полотенца меняли каждый день. Красивый вид из ресторана на 6 этаже.
В ванной не было полотенцесушителя, из-за этого в ней было очень холодно, без тапочек стоять на кафеле было невозможно. В дождливую и холодную погоду в ресторане постоянно холодно и дует, не комфортно завтракать.
Loved the room. We had amazing views of the Bosphorus and Hagia Sophia. The bath tub was a plus! Just what you need after a long day walking around the beautiful city.
Breakfast didn't have much too choose from but the quality was good. The windows in the bedroom didn't close properly but we didn't have much trouble as the heating worked perfectly.
Close to almost everything in the old area of istanbul. Decent rooms Regular cleaning of rooms Helpful staff
New years eve arrangement not worth the money, bad food and program. Top floor restaurant, expensive and not clean in my opinion. Breakfast, bad... only some cheese and other wierd stuff that doesn't belong as a Breakfast.
Avoiding noise of cars
Good and nice hotel. Specialy the location
Location. Hotel is situated on Yerebatan Street, very close to Basilica Cistern, Hagia Sophia, Sultanahmet Square and Topkapi Palace. Most turist destinations in the Old City are within the walking distance, including both the Grand Bazaar and Spice Bazaar, as well as metro/train station at Sirkeci. Transport to/from the hotel - a van connects the hotel with Ataturk Airport several times a day, for a reasonable price of 20 Liras per person. A cab could cost 50-60 Liras. Staff. The staff was very kind, and they were very helpful with useful advices and answers about local things in Istanbul. They provided us with free cup of caj (tea), after the check-out, while we were waiting for the transport to the airport. From experience, it's better to ask the receptionist at the lobby to invite a cab for you, because the one you stop at the street is likely to overprice his drive. The room was spacious, it contained a sofa, an armchair, a table, and a TV. It did not have a view, but we anyway spent most of the time out in the city. One evening the power want down for a short while, but in a few seconds, the backup generator was on, and everything was fine. Restaurant is on the top floor, with a really superb view of the city while enjoying the meal. For breakfast, there's a good offer of food (cheese with herbs recommended!), and the chef will make an omlette upon request. In the evening, the place is an a la carte restaurant. Overall, the Istanbul Hotel is excellent value for money, I would recommend it if you are looking for a medium-priced hotel at a great location.
The WiFi signal in the room was pretty much weak. It worked perfectly well in the lobby and in the restaurant.
Fine location, clean rooms. We had a nice spacy room. Breakfast simple but for a 3 star hotel OK. Correspondance with Hotel via email before arrival was prompt, information good and understandable
Few problems with watersupply 1 day which had been solved when we returned to the hotel. The Hotel was claimed via booking.com to be a 5 star hotel. It is not - but a fine 3 star hotel.
The location is just right, within 5 minutes walk to Hagia Sophia and the restaurants. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful.
great location, friendly and helpful staff.. great value...Jam.. the hotel attendant.. showed me where to buy the cheapest beer and carried my beer back to the room for me.. the hotel restaurant is on the top floor with breathtaking views.. great breakfast with atmosphere overlooking the city
the wifi in the room was a bit slow
Breakfast was good and the personnel are friendly and helpful.
No qiblah direction and the lighting inside the room is dim
Views, size of rooms
Its all quite old and oldfashioned. There is a clear lack of maintenance. The spa and sauna is very expensive for what it is and is not included in the room rate.
Location in mid of the old city, something that worth to be known.
Dirt and sight behind of the hotel.
Location right in the centre of the old town plus the staff were very co-operative
Rooms are very small and dark. The first room thay gave me was not suitable for human living and after two nights they changed it to a better one. No proper restuarant and other facilities
Very friendly and helpful staff. Lovely comfortable rooms and amazing location.
Location was Perfect for exploring the city as it in the middle of all attractions.staff of the hotel were nice and they managed our early checkin & late Checkout request. the breakfast was good but mostly salads / 4 types of cheese / buns and several types of jams including nutella. boiled eggs and 2 other items of sausages was must. but they also can make omlete or fry egg. i was with my parents and 2 young children and my stay was v.nice including Breakfast & beautiful panoramic View
the chef didnt know how to make omlete & the staff except manager are not good in english speaking. house keeping staff arrange your stuff which i didnt like. seems that they are part time and not permanent housekeeping. moreover the staff of hotel is limited as the chef also sits in reception with a tie & waiters also work as bellman etc.
The quality of the housekeeping was superior! My friend and I were slobby and the staff organized and folded our stuff! We tried to be tidier after that and gave them a good tip. Front desk staff were informative and pleasant. And the breakfast staff were creative and courteous.
Perhaps be more strict about smoking areas. We were smokers but could smoke in our room although it wasn't designated as such. Maybe have certain rooms designated as smoking or have an area on main floor or on the terrace in evenings. If non-smokers got the room after us, they rightly wouldn't be pleased. The air conditioner wasn't very efficient.
Very good service
The room has a back door that didnt close well but nothing bad happended
Fantastic location, being right in the heart of the Sultanahmet area and the staff were excellent, very friendly and always helpful.
Above my room was the restaurant and I could hear chairs being scraped on the wooden floor late at night and then early in the morning for breakfast. Would've liked a more warmer duvet and more pillows. Housekeeping forgot to clean my room one out of the three mornings.
Rooms sizes were very good according to the price, everything clean, excellent view from the restaurant (breakfast) terrace. Chef even prepared special dish for me. Compared with other hotels I stayed in this trip, this was the best value-price of all. recommend it 100%
It was hot and humid when we were there, so sitting at the tiny Juliet balcony outside our room in the evenings overlooking the busy activity of the street, watching distant fireworks displays and absorbing the energy of this vibrant city was a delight. And when it was time to sleep, we closed the double-glazed doors and windows, enjoyed the efficient air conditioning and slept in peace, silence and great comfort. The meals - all of which we had in the hotel's restaurant - for it offered simply the best food we had ever had in Istanbul on previous visits - were uniformly excellent, as were the breakfasts. I cannot imagine a more wonderful way to start and to end a day in the city than doing so at a window in the restaurant overlooking the Agia Sofia, The Blue Mosque, the Golden Horn and the Topkapi.
Finding out too late that there was a laundry service and being too stupid to ask about it in good time.
Very lovely personel. They did everything they could to help us arrange tickets for the Galatasary soccer game, he even went with us to the stadium. The beds in the rooms are very good.
If I have to name something it is the fact that the rooms can be a bit noisy.
Everything - especially excellent restaurant with magnificent views over Istanbul
- Location was perfect - very close to all the main historical attractions. - Room and washroom size - very reasonable sized rooms. Hot water in shower was also a plus. - Staff were friendly and helpful. They even entertained our late check-out request.
- The overall facilities were a major disappointment - no coffee maker / electric kettle, or any other such amenities. - Very poor lighting and air-conditioning in the room. - The security safe was dodgy at best and wasn't even fixed inside the cabinet. While it may not have been easy for someone to unlock it to steal the valuables, the thief could've easily taken the whole thing. - There were quite a few mosquitoes in our room at night, and the staff didn't have any repellant or spray available.
