Location is 5-7 minutes from Ajay Sofia-Sultan Ahmed mosque. Very friendly personal, clean rooms and new towels every day. Very nice view from the top terrace on the Bosporus. The best is to walk upstairs instead of taking the elevator after the breakfast which is so good you do not need to take a lunch. Free WiFi.

I was not very impressed with this hotel because it would sometimes take a few days to get laundry done, we needed to ask 2 or 3 times to get an iron, luggage transported upstairs, and some extra pillows. Room service was not there daily, but they tried their best to do the job. The floor was very dusty and... More

We had a very nice week at the Art City Hotel, and would gladly go back the next time we are in Istanbul. Very friendly and helpful staff, super breakfast, great view from the room and the roof, and perfect value for the money.

I recently spent 4 nights at the Art City. We'll start with the positive: nice people. Now the negatives. The Art City is actually two hotels, the Art City and the Tulip House, recently combined under one owner and some walls knocked out to make a single hotel. The result is that everything is either up or down a few... More

Just had 4 nights here. Arrived very late and had a warm welcome. Staff polite and feel sure would have been helpful if needed. Our room had a sea view but we were unable to open the doors as they had been screwed in a couple of places which was odd. As one afternoon we needed to rest, it would... More

We stayed five nights at the Art City hotel Istanbul. Firstly, I would concur with the previous reviewer that the Art City and Tulip House hotels appear to be one and the same. Our stay did not have the best start: there was a misunderstanding about our airport pick-up. The hotel had emailed me but only the day before we... More

This small family run hotel is very well situated opposite the expensive Four seasons hotel but with better views. We visited for lunch stop but saw a smart hotel with good food and one of the best roof top terraces, restaurants in Istanbul> Located close to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia and with views of both this is a...
