This hotel has very convenient location at Aksaray. There is just 2-3 minutes to the metro station and the tram station also. And many lines buses passing nearby. It's around 2 km to the most famous historic sightseeings: Topkapi Palace, Saint Sophia, Blue Mosque, Yerebatan Cistern and so on. A hundred meters behind the hotel is a small, nice and... More

Melita is a clean and ok place. The breakfast is fair, considering the price, the same is the hotel. The reason for us to recommend it, as we will do, is the optimal placement. It is situated 100 meters from the Aksaray station - the end station of the metro line directly from the airport. (It costs 3 lira the... More

to far from sultanahmed. From 10 pm, afraid to walk. Poor breakfast. The rooms are that small, that if you have a bigger lugage, you don't have where to put it. No english at recepcion. Nothing to do there, you have to walk to sultanahmet.. Grand bazar is at 1km.

The Hotel Melita was the worst hotel experience of my life. The first day of my stay I unpacked and then took a rest in my room. I a woke to a staff member knocking on my door. When I opened the door a 19-year-old boy tried to give me coffee, unsolicitedly. This was uncomfortable, but I just took the... More

The location of the hotel is perfect. You can go anywhere by tram or metro. It takes 15 minutes from this hotel to Sultan Ahmet on foot. I liked the small restaurant in the hotel. There is free tea, coffee and juice in the lobby all day. There is also wi-fi in rooms. But I want to mention that air-conditioning... More

I Last September I stayed in this hotel which looks more like a motel, unfortunately for my concept is the worst hotel or motel that I’ve been staying in my life.. I have no complaints about their employees, they do their job to please or satisfy its guests. Melita’s restaurant is the worst of the worst… and nothing to say... More

The location of this hotel is it's strong point. It is within walking distance (read bag dragging distance) of the Arkasay railway station and the tramline to town. The rooms are averagly OK, not flash but clean and tidy. However, some of the rooms are quite small so ensure that you get a bigger room. Breakfast is OK, nothing out... More

It was mostly ok, but room was very small, much smaller than the photos on website would indicate. Location is very good, just a short walk from Aksaray metro station, which one can reach from airport on the metro in 30 to 40 mins. Breakfast was good, with cheese, olives, honey, etc.
