Simple, but nice and clean hotel with friendly personnel and excellent location - it takes only 2 minutes to get to tram station and 5 minutes to walk to Sultanahmet area. There are lots of cafes and souvenir shops near it. Breakfast was the same each day, but the choice was quite good.

I did not choose Kafkas Hotel initially - I had been located in an excellent boutoque apartment hotel very close to Istiklal and Taksim square. Then the riots began, virtually on my doorstep and, whilst I never felt in danger from any of the protagonists, it became increasingly difficult to get to and from the hotel. Also, the novelty of...

Stayed here for about a week. It is a very basic hotel for undemanding travellers' needs. Very simple and small, but clean rooms. Comfortable bed, new clean towels and linen. Good clean bathroom. Never had breakfast, so can't comment. Service was very good, booking manager and receptionists were very helpful - gave advice, helped to order taxi, etc. There were... More

For me one of the main things I need from a hotel is easy access to the city. The main sites are all in walking distance (a little far like 15 minutes but not unreasonable). The rooms were average, I was here with a group so there were a variety of rooms we ended up with. I was in a... More

We stayed at the Kafkas for a total of five nights. Initially we arrived very late at night from the airport and were accommodated in room 101 (see room tips for more comment on this room). The following morning we asked to be placed in a different room and were rehoused on the 6th floor. When we returned to the... More

Right outside the front steps of the hotel are convenience stores, bars, & shisha bars. You need not venture fare to get to the Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Spice Markets etc. The hotel is clean, has free wifi at the lobby (at time of visit), a rooftop restaruant with good view of the city, but is a bit older. Friendly... More
