Close to Sultanahmet, easy to find from Sultanahmet tram station. However -- next time I'll prefer some nice small hotel at the south side of Sultanahmet. We had two rooms, one twin and one double. Double room was extremly small. Bathroom was quite "interesting" -- there was no separate place for shower, it was just installed aside toilet bowl :-)).... More

This nice, cosy hotel is literally a few minutes away from the most spectacular landmarks of Istanbul but it is located in a quiet street, which is another advantage. The service in the hotel was excellent. To start with the manager, he repiled to all my emails, fulfilled my request about the type of the bathroom and agreed to send... More

Hussein was extremely helpful with our requests. We also needed to make some phone calls to the US and Esir offered to make the calls for us free of charge so we could we could reactivate our credit card for Turkey. The breakfast was excellent!

The hotel is situated in the center, near all the important sites and good restaurants. The staff was very hospitable and went out of their way to help us. The view from the terrace where breakfast is served is wonderful and the rooms were clean an a/c was good and perfect for the summer nights. Highly recommended!!

My family wanted to stay in old town, very close to all tourist attractions. We also had our budget restrictions so Meddusa was perfect place for us. Rooms were neat and clean although little compact. Entire staff was very friendly and helpful. Thanks to Mr Eser and hos colleague who made our istanbul stay memorable.
