Excellent location, within walking distance to many of the tourist attractions. My room had a fantastic view of the Galata tower. Typical Turkish breakfast but very good. Friendly staff. I wasn't feeling well my second night and the staff had soup delivered for me. The room was small but most importantly, clean and comfortable. No problems with WiFi or TV... More

We used Room 102 for a very short stay. At 80 TL = 40 CAD, I thought the location, the front desk service and room quality were good value for the money. A hostel for 2 people would have probably cost more and provided less. The pros first: 1) Excellent location just behind the Sirkeci train station. 2 min max... More

When we arrived at Esen Hotel, we were offered a room on the first floor across the road. As this had no views from the window we asked if we could be given a room with a view. Bearing in mind the location of this hotel near the waterfront, it seemed a shame not to have views to match. The... More

The hotel is close to the main attractions. Most just a few minutes walk. Located in the metro maturity behind the hotel. Bit noisier than average, but not annoying! The staff is nice and helpful. The breakfast is not plentiful, but a few days bearable point. (3 kinds of cheese, two kinds of sausage, + butter, jam, honey, etc ...)... More

Very good location is an advantage only. Dirty, small and noisy rooms. There were no table, no safe box, no mini bar and no tea-kettle in the room (however it was specified in web-site information). Once I returned in the evening and the door in my room was widely open. It was open the whole day long, the cleaning staff... More

We booked the hotel a month earlier however when we arrived on 1st May night after a long flight, we were told that our rooms have been cancelled as unable to charge our credit card. It was totally unacceptable as I booked rooms for other locations using same credit card and didn't encounter such problem. We were transferred to their... More
