The Kaftan has a convenient location in Sultanahmet near the major attractions of Istanbul. The breakfasts are also good and served in a room with an excellent view over the rooftops of the district and the Sea of Marmara. The rooms are quite small but clean and pleasant, and the staff are friendly and helpful. Not luxury but a very... More

Small hotel with not large rooms. But if you decided to visit Istambul center for few days and you don't need luxury, but fair price, Kaftan is absolutely perfect. 1 minute from embankment, 3 minutes from Hagia Sophia.

This hotel is better than you could imagine at first sight. It has quite small rooms, but they are adorable. It's very clean and the beds are comfy. Most remarkable is the location, the breakfast and last but not least the staff. Totally value for money and highly recommended.

We stayed here with our 2 little kids in October. We spent 5 nights at the kaftan Hotel. I really didnt expect much because of the very low price i paid but i was surprised when we were shown to our room! It was cozy, bright and clean with a modern touch. Bathroom was very nice and clean too fully... More

This hotel is all about the location. It is within a 5 minute walk from the main historic sites of Hagia Sofia, Topkapi and Sultan Ahmet Mosque. It is located within the small residential side streets of the Sultan Ahmet district which is dotted with small side street cafes, restaurants and shops. We arrived via the metro from the Airport...

Stayed one night at this hotel. The room is ok for its rate and the shower is good; the breakfast is also good with a remarkable view from the terrace. However, the service of the front desk staff (daytime shift) is just bad if not terrible - he is arrogant and not helpful and provided limited information upon enquiries; the... More

Location, location, location. Walking distance to Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Top Kapi Palace. Service at reception is excellent. Owner offered us free deserts on first day which was really nice gesture. Full Turkish breakfast on top floor terrace with view of the city. We will definitely come back next time we're in town :)

The rooms are very small and basic, but the primary benefit of this hotel is the location! Very close (less than 5 minute walk) from the Blue Mosque, metro, and other tourist attractions. Best location for the price! Breakfast is very generous and the breakfast patio has a beautiful view. However the food is 100% Turkish (Figs, Dates, Watermelon, olives,... More
