For the money you pay great value. Very clean and extra helpful stuff. They helped us about everything. Directions where to go. I also needed a charger for my telephone and they reacted asap. We got only good words for the hotel and stuff !

Cozy and modern hotel, situated in the center. Very welcoming and helping stuff. Clean comfortable beds, wifi worked fine. Close to tram line so the public communication was great. However the street is quite steep so there would be a problem for people with suitcases, we had backpacks so much more comfortable to reach the hotel. Tourist attractions were very... More

I just came from May hotel after staying two nights with my Mrs. It's a good hotel but not a real four star. Staff is very good and polite. The problem is that it's very noisy. I couldn't sleep all night because my room was on road side and very bad noise was coming from street and then you can... More

We stayed at the May Hotel for 5 nights in October. It is a smallish hotel with quite small rooms, but very adequate, clean, comfortable and right in the middle of town. It was two minutes downhill to some excellent restaurants, about 10 mins uphill to the bazaar and about 20 mins to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, etc. The... More

The May Hotel is not as good as its description but the exaggerations just seem to be the Turkish way! It is still a good hotel for a base to visit Istanbul. It may not look entirely like the photographs nor will it have the balcony room, the terrace and bar you imagine from the description, and the dark, derelict-looking... More

If you are from England and you see that this hotel has been rated 4 and 1/2 stars, do not be fooled that does not mean it is very high standards and lovely comfy bed. It would be your average 3 stars. There are A LOT of ups and downs for instance… My family had booked a 'family room' and... More

As we checked out Trip Advisor before going it was a great help. Handy getting taxi, the driver found May Hotel quite quickly, road was closed at bottom but we just walked up. Might have been awwkward to find by yourself. Fruit shops, cafes usual delicious Turkish food nearby. Certainly lots of shoes shops top of street. Street a bit... More

The May Hotel is exactly what you'd expect for the price, rooms were clean and well sized, the staff were really helpful with directions and always on hand to help. Our double room had a desk, wardrobe, chest of drawers and a safe, with a clean but basic toilet/shower room. Breakfast was included but we tended to avoid it. The... More
