We stayed here as part of a tour and felt the hotel satisfied our needs. It is in a good location in the centre of the old town. However the fittings and fixtures are tired and the bathroom could be revamped. Breakfast includes standard Turkish fare with a great view of the bay yet is only accessible by stairs. Therefore...

I stayed twice at this hotel - on both ends of my tour. I booked extra days, so I stayed 3 nights the first time and two nights at the end of my trip. I lucked out with the first room, I had a street view on the 2nd floor - I think it was room 202. On the return... More

This has become the new name for this hotel in my repertoire. We found our room smelly and stuffy with its only window opening to an internal air shaft, the toilet dirty, the shower mouldy, the food inedible, the service poor. Never again!!!

Helpful staff, who allowed early check-in. The bar, lift and downstairs bathroom are bonuses but the real winner is the location. It's right where you need to be and the tram line makes finding your way or a doddle. Great bars and restaurants are on the doorstep. Rooms are small and nothing flash, and don't expect a view from your... More

PROS: location is 5-10mins away from main attractions; short walk from tram stop; lovely breakfast; accomodating staff CONS: small room and bathroom; wi-fi is temperamental; creaky elevator Overall, great place for those on a budget

Helpful staff, nice breakfast room and breakfast, a lift (essential with heavy luggage). This is not a top of the range hotel and the rooms opening into the internal well shaft are dark and uninviting but the other rooms are fine. It is well located and you can leave extra bags in their lock up room if you are touring... More

The greatest location – 5-10 minute walking for all main sights, Gulhane park and Bosporus. Train station is in 1 minute walking. Nice comfortable rooms, normal size, clean and comfort beds. The only negative thing – the bathroom could be a little bit cleaner (or maybe bath was not very new) and breakfast more “interesting”. Always ask for rooms with... More

We stayed at the Erbil Hotel as part of a tour group (Gecko and Intrepid both use this hotel). The hotel rooms aren't much, but they are clean and the aircon works. The hotel is centrally located and easy walking distance to the tram stop nearby and many other attractions and shopping areas. The breakfast in the morning is located... More

This is in a great location with the tram stop less than 5 minutes away. The rooms are incredibly small (even for istanbul standards) and dark. The wifi doesn't work in the room and so you need to sit in the lobby. There is an air conditioner in the room however there was no remote (when we asked for one... More
