Location is amazing; more affordable than other hotels along the same street. Front desk staff were warm and friendly - spoke English fluently.
Booked airport shuttle to pick up from Hotel Hali (via a nearby travel agency). Reception would only offer us taxi pickup.
Beds were comfortable but the room was not made up sometimes even after the make up the room sign was on.
Elevator works fine although it's tiny (max 3 people). Breakfast was buffet-style but nothing special. Mostly bread and cheese. View of the cultural monuments from the breakfast terrace is amazing.

Room Tip: Best view from the top floor facing the Hagia Sophia

Recently stayed there for 4 nights. Was alright not the best but will do for a quick visit. No iron or kettle in room. Lack of staff who speak English does make it difficult. WiFi is available but not the best. Very convenient location. Near metro and tourist location.

We stayed for six nights from 20 Sep 2015
The staff are very nice. Shareef stands out the most polite, patient and helpful staff. Always smiling and ever willing to answer any queries. The room is very clean and well maintained. We were give the fifth level overlooking the Blue Mosque and the sunrise and sunset were stunning.
It's within the shopping belt but very quiet because of the sound proof windows. We had a lovely stay

The Sultanahmet area of Istanbul is very old and many of the buildings have been converted into hotels so they often have a street frontage as is the case of the Hali. No effort has been made to brighten the reception so it is quite a dismal introduction to this hotel. The ancient lift carries two people and a suitcase very cosily. I checked out of the hotel after seeing my room which was tiny, smelled damp, had dark furniture and two tiny single beds. The bathroom was no better and was cramped and dingy.
The front bedrooms have a spectacular view but have the constant street noise to contend with. The staff, as with all the people of Turkey, are friendly, helpful and eager to please. Friends who stayed here said the breakfast consisted of pastries, cheese and cold meat.

Stayed: August 2015, travelled with friends

I didnt book in advance, but went with the flow, so decided on this hotel,

I did bargain for a good deal because I was staying 5 nights, the staff were not really helpful, but the location of the building is good, close to the near by attraction in sultan Ahmet.

rooms were clean and there is good wifi, there are better hotels in the area,

Room Tip: Dont take the room on the background, there are rooms overlooking at the square and the mosque...
