Stayed at the Kupeli Hotel in March 2015. First a heads up: the amazing reviews are obviously fake, I think most people know that, but I like to reiterate. The horrible reviews might be fake too, so, I would look for the middle of the road to get a good idea of the hotel. First the good: great location, super... More

Stayed in Istanbul in January 2015 at Kupeli Hotel. Got a triple room which was a double with an added roll-away bed for my son (very crowded). Breakfast was a disappointment as I looked forward to good Turkish coffee but got none and selection was very limited. Staff was great in providing information and suggestions and the location was very... More

We have just completed a 11 day tour of Turkey which included an initial 2 days in Istanbul, (on tour), and another 3 days on completion of the tour, which we spent at the same hotel on our own account. The hotel is old and rustic, fitting in with its surroundings... it is perfectly situated, within 200 or 300 m... More

The hotel is in the heart of Sultanahmet (old town) within 5 to 10 minutes walk to the tram station and all major attractions. The room was very small but functional... However, the staff was very friendly and helpful, especially Mr. Aloottin. Overall, it was a good stay.

Great little place. The night manager Abdullah was wonderful and charming, and we became friends by the end of the stay. AFter a disagreement about a small issue, he called in to the restaurant where I was having dinner with friends and sent me an apology note penned in chocolate and free dessert. Very cute. All of the staff was... More

The service was wonderful! Receptionist and wait staff (Abottin) on the 6th floor were very freindly! Really close to Hagia Sofia, blue mosque and the gran bazar. Rooms are simple, small but functional.

From what I could search, for the price paid, this is a typical hotel in central Istanbul. Which is, small dimension building, small bedrooms, but, overall, functional. That sums up my opinion of this hotel. It was a small room, but clean and the bathroom was enough spacious. The staff were very warm and helpful. The breakfast was good and... More

A good reasonably priced small hotel just a few blocks from the main metro line at the Grand Bazaar stop. Easy access to the bazaar, restaurants, Blue Mosque, etc. The staff were very efficient & helpful. Good but limited breakfast, somewhat loud streets below. However what made this a pleasant 3 night stay was the staff. Abdullah (Apo) was our... More

First of all construction (very noisy) in front of the hotel from 9am to 7pm. Room very small and TV = ipad screen with bad resolution! Air conditioning very dusty and very poor wifi. Staff are hypocrite and not helpful if you ask for something other than their suggested trips which are very expensive. They are trying to make money... More
