I found this little hotel to be centrally located and within walking distance from ALL tourist attractions. The rooms are clean and fully air-conditioned. The staff in the hotel are always available to assist with queries and have a cheerful attitude.

Located in the centre of the old town. Small clean and economic place to stay. The decoration of the rooms are very nice,too. They use the space properly for sure! I like the service of the stuff was very professional and friendly. It is walking distance to every where so helps you to avoid from taxis. The breakfast is in...

We stayed for a week in October, this hotel was a great base for our first visit to the city. Walking distance to all the main attractions and the tram network, there are a number of restaurants and a small shop if you want to buy any snacks or drinks to take back to your room. The room was small...

Likes: (1) Literally a 5 minute walk from hotel to Hagia Sophia & Blue Mosqu (2) From our room we could view the top half of Hagia Sophia and hear the beautiful sound of the "Call to Prayer". {Photo included} 3) Relatively inexpensive nightly room rates. Dislikes: (1) There is no dining option on site. As such, there is no...

We love this place! It's like 5-10 mins walk to every major attractions. Staff (esp Sophia, a beautiful Armenian lady) are very friendly and helpful. They let us keep our luggage (after checkout) while we go sightseeing. The hotel is designed in traditional Ottoman style with a modern touch, so it was simple but elegant, and kinda give you a...

Located in a major road, Merial Hotel is only about 200 meter from Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, Toppkapi Palace and Sutanahmet Park. Nicely decorated in traditional style, it is clean, safe and easy to find and easy to reach. Walking distance to Sutanahmet trams station. Breakfast is at the rooftop of Adamar Hotel, its sister hotel, just across the...

The Merial is a small hotel with limited facilities but it is an absolute bargain. Breakfast is served at a partner hotel just 20 yards away and is an excellent buffet spread. The hotel itself seemed to have only about 10 rooms but there is a front desk and a friendly member of staff always around. Rooms could probably do...
