    • Stayed 6 nights

    the cleanness is so poor, there was blood in the pillow, and hair on the bed and the floor. the smell of the bathroom is stinky because of the sewerage. at the breakfast time the employees doesn't notice the dirty tables as quickly so others can set.

    The room view is stunning; the location of the hotel is amazing, there is no alcoholic drinks. everything is available around it: restaurants; cafes, cloth shops, Sultan Ahmet, Grand Bazaar and more... too near for the tramway station and the marmaray station. the staff is friendly.

    Poor breakfast. Very poor coffee. Finishing the breakfast at 10:00. From outside the hotel looks new, modern reception and lift but inside the rooms are old furniture.

    Good place to visit the old part of Istanbul. Good internet connection. Soft bed.

    The WORST hotel I ever stayed in my whole life
    • Leisure trip
    • Solo traveller
    • Standard Single Room with Bosphorus View
    • Stayed 14 nights

    I’ve stayed in a total of 16 hotels till now and this one is the worst and the most despicable place I’ve ever stayed in. You should check my other reviews, I like to be nice but I’m left with no choice but to tell the whole truth about this disgusting place. Let’s start with the room, from the website itself you can see they are deceiving customers by putting the same lovely images of the same room for all types of rooms which is by the way a room you will never going to stay in because I don’t even think it exists in this filthy hotel. The room I’ve stayed in is in the fourth floor which suppose to be with a Bosphorus view but the truth is the view is blocked by a huge old building that I believe is a residence for low income people so be prepared to see fat naked hairy men hanging their laundry outside their windows every morning and you get a partial view of the Bosphorus so when they say a Bosphorus view, I believe they meant a very partial Bosphorus view. If you decide to ignore the view and just stay in the room with windows shut you’ll get a TV with only 5 channels that can definitely improve you Turkish language because they are all Turkish channels not a single international channel at all so good luck with practicing your Turkish language. If you tried to forget about the room view and looked to set somewhere in the hotel with a better view, got luck with that too because there is no place to set outside your room because the terrace with “nice” view is permanently closed and the bar area as well and no seats in front of the hotel to set on and the restaurant on the second floor has no view at all just yellowish brick walls, so you end up with a couple of very old leather sofas inside near the reception area and that is it.

    There are nothing to like in this despicable place

    we reserved at askoc hotel on April- 2017 (4 months ago), we loved it so much, so this time we decided to reserve there too, but unfortunately we were very disappointed from the cleanliness of the rooms, the floor was dirty, the towels had hair from the previous passengers. now are not sure if we will come back there for this reason!! I hope you take it into consideration!

    Explains above. 😞😞😞😡😡😡

    When I arrived in the hotel I was given a a normal room instead of twin room. The top Shoer wasn't working and the shower was molded. When I complained. The young manager came an advised me just use body wash one!!!!!!! There was a backed fridge wasn't wirking. I asked for a kettle didn't give. When I asked to buy one didn't allowed. There was no lobby for residents to use. The bar and lobby area always was dark and not in use. Just 2 coffee table again with a poor light. Breakfast quality was poor and not value for money. The staff are all men with fairl to say grumpy faces. For an intelligent couple used to respectful wellcome everything was wrong. I didn't see any kind of smile in the face of any stuff. No music at all. Bed condition was bad and honestly every morning was waking up with uncomfortable back!!! Their body language and tune of voice were patronizing . From quality poor of view was like a hostile . One my worst and uncomfortable holidays ever. I lost my faith on Booking . Com. I

    Rooms were a little small however if you are only planning on sleeping there then it is fine, especially for the price! Breakfast was standard, I assume you will get the same in most hotels across Istanbul.

    Excellent location, just off the busy streets and conveniently located for access to trams, bus and boats. staff were very helpful in providing advice on how to get to various locations and they spoke/understood english beds were comfortable and shower was really good Free access to pool and sauna until 6pm :)

    Difficult to find as no locals seemed to know the street or the hotel. Very small room, with noise from the other rooms and the corridor. The lift made a noise (we heard in the room) every time it stopped on our floor. We had twin beds instead of the double we had booked.

    We had an upgrade of the room to the other side with a view on the Bosphorus. Inside swimming pool, althought the times to use it for free where when we were exploring the city during the day. Good location close to the Sirkeci railway station.
