Location and staff
Great location, clean, good staff, close to everything....i mean everything.
i did not like that was a bit cold during the night and the air-conditioning did not work. the sound insulation was not that great.
i likeed very much the location and the way that the room looked. the morning view, as i had breakfast, made my day, a very nice way to start the day.
Breakfast weak, poorly (in my opinion) of most cheap quality. kitchen staff friendly but completely inexperienced in the means serving breakfast. every morning (especially Sunday) I found them unprepared for receiving customers.
an extremely well positioned hotel, close to all the sights of historical center, in a quiet area. Attentive and helpful staff, spacious and clean rooms, the bathroom clean and well equipped. Breakfast room on the top floor provide a great view.
The main entrance was defective.
The room was big. The Location was walking distance from a few historical place of interests. The Tram are near the hotel which you can used it to cross the Golden Horn and reached the Galata Tower without the hassle of train transfer. The hotel offer late check-out.
Very friendly staff, free wifi which enabled me to keep in touch with family and friends.
Bad sides: The lobby is the main negative side of this hotel. It is small, badly lit,and empty of life although it has a fireplace and two sets of comfortable sofas, and a small library.The second is the lighting in the rooms where we stayed. The rooms stay badly lit even when it depends on the lamps that are fixed in the ceiling.You can open the curtains in daytime and its perfect but then you dont have privacy. All lights work from one button...so you cant leave one side light..so its totally dark when you put off the light. We used to keep the bath door open to win a side light when we went to sleep. there isn't a reading lamp either.
We are a 50 and a 55 couple. We traveled for leasure. The hotel is a small one with 20 rooms , a Hammam (Turkish spa) in the lower floor,a top view breakfast hall which turns into a dinner hall at the 6th floor, standard rooms that have basic facilities that answered our needs, a jacuzzi and a super clean bath floor and basin etc. You will find 2 pairs of cloth-made slippers ready in the closet and a hairdryer in the bath so you dont need to carry these aling with you. The breakfast that we had in our 5 day stay included 4 kinds of cheese, two yogurt,eggs in 3 forms, one kind of sausages, 2 kinds of olives, 3 kinds of vegetables,3 kinds of coffee, all types of tea, cold and hot milk, cornflakes, 4 kinds of bread, honey, tihina, jams,olive oil and lemon. The view from the sixth floor is facinating.You can see the Bosphor and much of the city and the Ayasophia museum and mosque and much more. The 6th floor is rather the roof of the hotel which is covered with glass. This lets a lot of light and sun to enter...which we enjoyed a lot.
The first night some other guests were extremely noisy. When I raise this with hotel staff they urged me to contact them if this happened again. They would have been happy to deal with it.
Travelling by myself, I was impressed by how safe and hassle-free staying at the Istanbul was. I recommend the shuttle-bus service from/to the airport. Fixed price. The hotel staff were very helpful. The location is fantastic: the underground cisterns are just down the street. From the restaurant (moderately priced & good food) a view of Agia Sofia to the left, the Blue mosque to the right.
Very good location, friendly stuff. Wonderful restaurant (very good food and service) with a superb view over whole skyline!
The taxi driver stole my wallet on the day of arrival
Very nice view from the panoramic roof restaurant
The main door is closed
Location is good. Breakfast is delicious The view of roof is wonderful! !!
When we stayed there, the main entrance door was closed for maintenance and we had to go through a travel agency office to enter the hotel Which was not comfortable. Because there were not many customers at the time we were staying there, the quality of breakfast was not great.
The hotel is walking distance to most of the centers of interest for visitors. Calm and quiet with daily cleaning and linen changes. Restaurant offers a good panoramic view of the area.
Breakfast, location and view were fantastic.
Only one big disappointment - breakfast. Unpleasant staff, working slowly, a lot of what you need to make themselves, such as cutlery and pick table. Although the terrace picture perfect, the food the same every morning, very traditionally, poor assortment in the Turkish breakfast traditions. Products not fresh, sometimes - very outdated, except bread. Dried sausages, scrambled eggs if you want ask for that fried, boiled eggs though is always there. Sometimes fry with egg baguette. All of these products are often cold, very bad taste. Has white and black bread. Coffee from the machine very bad, do not have Turkish coffee, tea reason. Cheese and meat a very small, multi-species, but not fresh, poor taste, tomatoes and cucumbers not fresh, wilted sometimes absent, no salads. Olives are good. Turkish yogurt was served always, breakfast cereals too, traditional sweet jam, milk, water. Juice is not very tasty. There are pieces of halva.
The hotel is ideally located off-season price really low, I do not know what is price in season. Location: 2 minutes from the hotel walk to the Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, Sultan Ahmet Park, 5 minutes walk to the Blue Mosque, Sultan Hurrem Hamam, Topkapi complex gate, the church of Hagia Irene, Gülhane Park, Gülhane or Sultanahmet tram stop, Sirkeci metro station, 10 min - to Mosaic Museum, Nuruosmaniye Mosque, Grand Bazaar, 15-20 minutes walk to Sirkeci train station, the New Mosque, Eminonu port, Galata bridge, Egyptian Bazaar, Hagia Sophia Little Mosque. View through a window and a French balcony to in front house. The room is very spacious and can accommodate three people, lighting the room a little small, there are minibar and a small fridge. There is no welcome gifts. Bed very comfortable, good mattress, the room clean and newly renovated, large closet but little shelves. There is a TV, but it did not work for several days and the staff did not repaired up. Only one rosette in room! The room appears to be safe, the hotel has a camera everywhere, in the corridors as well. There is an elevator. Administrators helpful staff, propose and outsource the desired excursions, tickets to events, provide other information, always! Clean the rooms every day, to maid should leave a few lira, cleans well, bring the item, the constantly adds bathroom accessories, bedding changes. Her very thanks. Staff speak English well, some - Russian. There is a spacious lounge below. At the top of the terrace a great view, there can be climbed at any time and enjoy the day in Istanbul. At hotel has a small private hammam, which offers services at the same prices as in Istanbul and elsewhere - if negotiation is not busy your can get a discount. Traditional Turkish hammam program without oil massage costs 40 euro per person. Masseurs excellent, very good doing massage, you will be sure to satisfy. I've tried - and thank them and a guy who take discount.
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 .
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Close to almost everything in the old area of istanbul. Decent rooms Regular cleaning of rooms Helpful staff
Avoiding noise of cars
Good and nice hotel. Specialy the location
The WiFi signal in the room was pretty much weak. It worked perfectly well in the lobby and in the restaurant.
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.
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.
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
The location is just right, within 5 minutes walk to Hagia Sophia and the restaurants. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful.
