I stayed here only one night. Although one night, the staff soooo kind to me, I could get some kindness more than the room charge I paid. If I could come Istanbul again, I'll stay here again! Suffice it to say that, stairs are narrow. I past someone on stairs difficultly.

Very polite staff, cool rooms and oh, the view from the terrace: you can see the Blue Mosque on one side and the Marmaray sea on the other. The hostel also provides food services... More

Really nice and pleasant stay at Nobel! The location was beyond amazing! I've been to Istanbul a number of times and the view from their terrace is by far the best in the Sultanahmet! Definitely would stay here again!
