Reviewed 7 February 2012

Stayed here in winter, got a great price for 4 nights. This is a new property, about 2 years old. Nestled between the Blue Mosque and a bazaar in Sultanhamet, the location is perfect for sightseeing. As a result, everything was a little smaller than I was used to (the front "desk" is just a nook". We had a 2nd floor room with good wifi, a little balcony with a streetview, and a comfortable bed. The minibar items were reasonably priced. Breakfast on the bottom floor was nice, the ladies will make you eggs or an omelet or something if you like. The front desk staff was always present and very very helpful. We found an awesome restaurant right down the block from the hotel and ate there every night.

Very small and nice hotel. Beautiful interior, friendly staff, good breakfast. But be on the alert with the manager, he's incredibly friendly but if you are not cautious you have a risk to be cheated in some details, i.e. paying for mini-bar we mixed up and gave 50 lire instead of 5, and he quickly took the money, but it was obvious, that we mixed up unfamiliar Turkish money. We discovered this only at the airport.

Hotel Novano is a great hotel! New, comfortable and clean and very beautifully decorated. The location is perfect, very central but very quiet at the same time. Everything you need around: cafes, restaurants, main tourist attractions.The breakfast is very good. The staff will make you feel like home, they are extremely friendly and ready to attend any of your needs. Everything was great, strongly recommended!!!

This is a tiny 3-star hotel in a quiet tiny street right behind the Blue Mosque, in the center of the old town. This is not the side of town where the nightlife is, therefore it's going to be your perfect quiet location if you're not into nightlife. Rooms are small but impeccably clean and newly funished. No fancy views from the windows. Free WiFi. The owner is very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast is average quality, according to the star rating.
