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

We stayed there end of October, 2013 for four days. Room booked by our travel agency. The hotel is nicely located in the historic and touristy part of the Old City, nearby all things of interest to the tourist. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast OK but we have seen worse. Rooms clean and comfy-standard issue. Just what we wanted... More

Great location and great access to lots of attractions in Istanbul. However, our room was pathetically small, dowdy, no air and a view of what looked like an elevator shaft. We had to sleep with the door open to the hallway as the room was too stuffy. Complementary breakfast was good.

Erbil is well situated for easy access to the attractions of Istanbul. The staff are very helpful and friendly especially for first-timers in Turkey. We stayed here twice - large room the first time, very compact room the second time, but both were warm and comfortable.
