We had a long layover at Ataturk airport so this is was a last minute booking. They underestimated their proximity to the airport, it definitely takes more than 5 minutes to get there. We got there at about 9pm and left at 5am, so we didn't have much experience with the service. The front desk showed us 2 rooms and... More

Great location is the only thing what was good in this hotel. It is located in the heart of Sultanahmet, nice street and your own keys make the feeling of living in Istanbul like at your own flat. Breakfast was not so bad, it was enough not to be hungry till noon. The room (№9) was normal, but the smell... More

We stayed there for 4 nights. The main problem was the dirt. It appeared some tiny worms under the toilet each time you flushed it. Really awful! Moreover, both the room and the bathroom were dirt and dusty. On the other hand, the guy responsible for the attendance intended repeatedly to get tips from us, joking or claiming he did... More

My fiancé and I stayed at the Venus hotel for one night months ago and we still talk about how bad a place it was. We travelled through Turkey and I found the Venus Hotel last minute online, it seemed alright with good reviews so we booked it. When we arrived in Istanbul it was really hard to find the... More

We stayed in Venus for just a night in November 2011 and was the worst overnight in a b&b in my life. The place appeared to be closed from the outside, noone responsible there to see us to the room, only a Bulgarian guy who turned out to be the only staff of this business. He was also responsible for... More

Good location - not more than five minutes to major attractions (AyaSofia and Blue Mosque), a quiet street, good view if you are lucky enough to have a room with a balcony. Rooms spacious enough for two people, bathroom - tidy with new equipment; furniture - rather stylish, big and comfortable bed. Air conditioning, fridge and TV working all right.... More
