Didn't respond to emails; couldn't communicate on the phone as they couldn't speak English! On the night of arrival, sent us to a smaller different hotel saying they are FULL! Unbelievable! Rooms were fine but mould smell in bathroom! Staff consistently Unhelpful! Breakfast was great though and so were the views from the top breakfast dinning roo.

We stayed here for 2 days and i will define it as decent stay. The rooms were effectively soundproof as described else the stay would have been noisy. It is located in marketplace. Sightseeing is good 20 min walk which can be tiring on sunny day. Guided tours can be taken but they tend to finish the tour at the...

The hotel is located 20 minute-walk from the major sights in Sultanahmet district, e.g. Hagia Sofia, the Blue Mosques, the Hippodrome etc. The rooms and bathrooms are large and clean, recently redecorated and refurbished. There's free Wi-fi service. The breakfast is served on the top floor from where you can have a beautiful view of the Istanbul bay. The breakfast...

This hotel bills itself as a 4 star but realistically it was a 2 star at best. It is located in a very noisy and congested location in Istanbul. It was almost impossible to reach by taxi as the traffic was so congested in the area. The rooms were pretty bare and run down with the furniture needing an update....

Having read the previous reviews we didn't expect much of this hotel (booked it last minute so it was the best of options that were left) but our stay was actually very pleasant. The room was big enough, the shower as well. Everything seemed renovated or maybe we were just lucky to get a room in a nice floor (5th)....

We stayed there in April 2011 (5 nights). There were no reviews and no traveler photos at the time of our booking, which I took as a good sign – very unwise of me. Plus points: - great location - clean sheets. Minus points: - filthy bathroom (hair and filth on the toilet and on the sink. Filthy bathtub. I...

Staying in Fener & Balat

Neighbourhood Profile
Fener & Balat
This sleepy and rather socially conservative area of Istanbul hosts a small but thriving Jewish community, the patriarchate of the Eastern Orthodox Church, and some of the most beautiful churches and Christian art in the world. Much of what’s most interesting to witness in Fener and Balat sits between the surviving ancient city walls of Constantinople and the serene shores of the Golden Horn. Despite the many splendid sights, historic attractions, stunning vistas, and warm Turkish welcome, the area remains largely unperturbed by the tourist trade that characterizes the atmosphere in nearby Sultanahmet and around the Grand Bazaar. Travelers that like to explore off the beaten track will reap big rewards for making the effort to visit this low-key part of town.

“Rooms with view may have seperate beds.”

“In some rooms there's a problem with the WC toilet - they won't flush due to poor water pressure, so make sure this works in your bathroom, or keep phoning the reception (as we did) asking them to send someone to fix the problem. They're used to having this kind of problem and they respond quickly, so no need for you to feel embarrassed or annoyed.”
