Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This lets us know that our reviews come from real guests, like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or quiet room than someone who’s stayed at the property before?
We want you to share your story, both the good and the bad. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinion and experiences, which are critical in helping guests make well-informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, and are treated with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full, as quickly as possible, after being moderated to comply with Booking.com guidelines. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
Once a review has been submitted, you can modify it by contacting Booking.com customer service.
We will use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content as well as the property replies to that content.
We will allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is that of a distributor of feedback from both guest and property.
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly without limiting expression of strong opinions. They are also applicable regardless of the sentiment of the comment.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include 'hate speech', discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, and the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

눉The room had a few small cosmetic deficiencies, the rooms are all situated around the main stairwell that is also used to get up to the restaurant so you might hear customers walking up.
눇The location was superb, you where so close to both Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. The view and food from their restaurant was also amazing. Their staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The room was very comfortable, and clean.

눉We were etremely disappointed with this hotel. The room was very packed and noisy. We had to insist for the room to be cleaned. There was a very bad smell in the bathroom. We informed the hotel several times but they refused to change the room and said they fixed it which was not the case. The Breakfast was poor despite the very nice rooftop. Not worth the money at all. Finally they asked us to pay in cash which we did to arrange them and we asked a bill with our two names on our checking out, they promised they will send by e mail which they did not despite our reminders. This give us a very bad feeling about the honesty and professionalism of the staff of this hotel. Will definitely not recommend.
눇The rooftop is very nice. Beautiful view. The staff of the restaurant are nice.

눉during our stay for a day or two they didnt clean the washroom despite request . after telling them for clean up again , they cleaned the room. they charged too much in my opinion for hotel shuttle service from airport to hotel.

눉Breakfast: Resuming bread and butter. Hospitality: The reception did not explain nothing regarding the city. Even when we asked him about some points. Room: There is no cleaning during your stay and the acoustic of the room is terrible.

눉Breakfast must be improved. In one morning no juice was available, we ask for it and they said that is finished.....this is no acceptable answear taking into consideration that entire hotel has 6 rooms (?) and they can have reserves.

눉It would be nice if the upper terrace would be cleaner, because at the time we was there, you can not really enjoy your breakfast there. It would be a great adittion to the guest stay, because the view is pretty awesome.
눇Location is perfect, only a few steps from all major atractions...Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Gulhane Park. Staff was also very nice, trying to help whenever we need something. Small rooms, but clean and comfortable for a young couple who spend most of the time exploring the city.

눉Sound proof is absent. you can hear all noises coming from other rooms. Some Facilities need to be fixed- like some of the light bulbs are not working. Breakfast, comparing to the same class hotels in Istanbul- is below expectations-could be ,ore varied and better organized.

눉Over priced dinner. When the cook was asked to advise us on menu choice he gave us the most expensive item which was clearly too much for 2 people.
눇Good location, friendly and helpful reception
Reviewed: 22 October 2015
눉With easily 100 nearby smaller and larger hotels, there are better choices. The staff was not accommodating for the price. Room clean up/service was on the minimal side. Staff, although we clearly requested, did not provide wake up calls for early morning flights. A fellow traveler complained of nighttime noise (likely coming from an adjoining hotel). Breakfast not exciting, and Nescafe instead of Turkish coffee –terrible! (But not uncommon throughout Istanbul, sadly). With many boutique and other hotels footsteps away, I would check out one of those before Turk Art Hotel.
눇This hotel was pleasant and well situated in the Sultanahmet district. Pluses are the location directly opposite from the Four Seasons Hotel, easy walking distance to Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque, and many restaurants. Ask for a room facing the Four Seasons. Breakfast was decent. The restaurant on the patio deck was very nice for dinner, one wait staff was a devout Muslim and he added a bonus. The Turk Art Hotel seems to be as much of a ceramic/handcraft rug sale store (with some very nice items) as a hotel.
Reviewed: 15 October 2015
눇The location is superb. I couldn't better it. Literally around the corner from Aya Sofra ( Hagia Sophia) and the Blue Mosque and the other delights of Sultanahmet. It's barely 1 minutes walk. The street has atmosphere plus! I felt safe as a female solo traveller. The views from the terrace at the hotel were wonderful, day and night. The Manager, Orhan, was so patient with all my questions, and was a professional and very helpful person. Top marks there.
Reviewed: 1 October 2015
눉The only issue that I had was the size of the room, though I believe that further floors up the spaces expand. It was a little too cramped for two people, however the view to the balcony was nice. There's not much reason to stay in the room though, old city, delicious terrace dining, and the rest of Istanbul await you!
눇The staff are gregarious, fluent in many languages, and always ready to help with anything. If you're coming down the flu, they'll bring up a cup of herbal tea straight to the room without being asked. If you want advice about where to go & what to see, they have plenty of wonderful suggestions and tips about navigating the city without being hassled. The terrace has been transformed in the TurkArt Hotel's newest asset and is already garnering rave reviews in the city's top 10. Now you can enjoy the view from the rooftop terrace while fresh ingredients, that you see being carried up the stairs, are transformed into enormous healthy salads (not any iceberg lettuce and a few meager tomatoes types, mind you) actual huge portions with myriad vegetables, healthy leafy greens and home made pomegranate based balsamic vinegar that's to die for. Then there is the meza plate of traditional Turkish appetizers from tzatziki, hummus, stuffed grape leaves, baba ganoush, etc, as well as a to-die for mixed grill entree of chicken, lamb, and beef that is juicy and not overcooked. And as always, it's hard to say "no" to a complimentary dessert. Smiles all around, you feel like a guest and not a stranger in a foreign land.

눉Room was below standard for the price. This may be due to the fact that we booked a suite, which turned out to be a normal sized hotel room. I think an ordinary room might be better value for money.

눇I visited this Hotel for the second time. It´s really so beautiful place and I feel like in a fairy tale there. Hotel is a furnished in Art style, very tastefully decorated and with a flair. The rooms are cozy and very charming. The staff is very helpful and polite. View from the terrace of the hotel is so magical. You're sitting there, on one side You see the Sultan Ahmed, from the other side Hagia Sophia and the breeze of the sea of Marmara quietly whispers that You just have been touched by eternity. It´s difficult to talk about the beauty but Your soul will remember it forever… All monuments are very close. Only about two minutes by walk and You can to ramble through the beautiful gardens of Topkapi Palace or admire the details of the architecture of the temples: the Hagia Sophia, the Sultan Ahmed or Blue Mosque. All these are very close.

Actually it is right in front of Four Seasons Hotel, and I looked down on it. Staff was kind for 24 hours and Wi-Fi was stable enough. A small convenient store is the next next door, where I could even exchange currencies. There are many shops, cafes and restaurants around this area. Worth it!
