We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The price for the double room was very logical and included breakfast. The room was small but clean and very nicely decorated. It was cleaned everyday. The window overlooked the cute little street outside. Sometimes the road could be a little noisy but not disturbing. The ordinance of the rooms help and... More

For my first time in Istanbul this hotel was a convenient choice, mainly because of the location, very close to the highlights of the city and at the same time on a very quiet street. The room was small but clean and light and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was correct, according to the Turkish tradition, with the pleasant... More

The rooms are not that big but they are nice and clean. The staff is friendly and the location is decent. There are restaurants, small shops and ATM in walking distance of a few minutes. Overall a nice hotel, fairly cheap when needing to stay a few nights in Istanbul.

The best thing about this hotel is location. Its about 5 min walk from Sultanahmet. The hotel staff was friendly and proffessionally. Room was nice with nice view, but with thin walls. I will recommend this hotel to the younger people due to lover requirements in terms of accomodations, food, and others.

The location is great, about 5 minutes to the Blue Mosque. The taxi driver had no problems finding this hotel from the airport. It was pretty decently price, I believe I was able to book it for around 35/night and stayed two nights in November. Other than location, it was just OK. The bed was OK. Walls are thin and... More

You will need a mountaineering course to negotiate the steps to entrance of this hotel, they obviously have never heard of health and safety, the same applies if you try to access the patio at the rear of the hotel. The room was comfortable but not cleaned during my stay there and if you can tolerate the call to prayer... More

Less than 5 mins walk from the Blue Mosque. Very helpful staff. Provided free map without being asked. I would give this hotel 3.5 stars out of 5. Great view from the roof top. There is a convenience store 50M away for water snacks etc. Prices were reasonable there. 5 Mins walk to many restaurants and stores.

I stayed in the Kaftan for 3 nights in September 2013. I have to say I would not return nor would I recommend it. The rooms were small and cramped and the whole hotel had an air of neglect. It is badly in need of redecoration. The bedroom walls were thin and I was woken every morning by people walking... More

We had great time there during our stay. Stuff was extrimely friendly and helpful, location is fantastic, the scenery on the terrace is fantastic. Breakfast is good enough. Lots of entertaiment facilities around. Wi-Fi signal was very bad in our room, but it is not a big problem, as you are always allowed to use computer downstairs near reception. Highly... More
