The best place to start explore Istanbul. Blue Mosque and Ayasofya in five minutes walk. Spice market and Eminonu Mosque in 15 minutes walk. Place itself is nice, room is small, but very clean and cosy. I was surprised by the fact that they change the bed and towels every day:) The breakfast was pretty good. And staff were nice:)

Note `Old Town`. Accept that first and you then apreciate the rest. Good location for walking all over Sultanahamet, most of the big things to visit are within a kilometer and there is a taxi company just on the next corner. Easy walking to the Kumkapi `tourist` eating out area, but don`t be afraid to try some of the more... More

Located at the edge of the main hotel area about 6 minutes walk into town, it was very quiet with restaurants, cafes etc... More

Rooms are extremely small: We asked for a double room, according to the north American standards we were expecting a room with a double bed that is big enough for two people or at least two twin beds; all we got was a small standard size bed that was pushed against the corner of the room. This was very inconvenient... More

Was saying that location is great, but it is not. Me as person who knows Istanbul well, I was searcing for this hotel for about an hour. Rooms are very small. Bathroom is nightmare. Breakfast is very very poor. I bet you can find better hotels for price this hotel offers.

I was overwhelmed by the warm reception I received from the staffs at the hotel, especially Mr Arif, he was so pleasant. Gettin to the room was a pleasant surprise. I loved everything about fors hotel, it felt like a new family to me. Would definately have a repeat stay there.

We had a really great time at Fors hotel! The staff were very friendly and cooperative, the rooms were all very clean and well kept, and the hotel itself is very close to popular sites, like the Blue Mosque (Sultan Ahmed Mosque). Overall, Fors is a very cute little hotel with great services and I strongly recommend it to anyone... More

If you visit the hotel's website you'd be quite suprised when you arrive at the hotel and realise those images are photoshopped! The views from the hotels website are impossible, my room looked straight into a wall. The hotel is also in a very suspect area that the police told me was dangerous. I would not recommend staying here.
