Istanbul was our third stop of our trip. We were looking forward to a great hotel as the reviews stated, but were disappointed rather quickly. When we first arrived we were shocked at the neighborhood, how could such a highly rated hotel be in an area that was quite sketchy. As a woman staying by yourself or with girlfriends, I... More

Only 2 stops away from Sultan Ahmet Mosque by tram, and several other mosques museums and monuments all in the same vinicty. This is generally the best location in Istanbul to be close to the centre of the Old City and New City. The hotel staff are very welcoming polite and friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone... More

We stayed at May Hotel for 5 nights and my friend and I enjoyed very much our stay. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the location is great for someone who wish to see as much as possible in a short period of time because most of the tourist attractions are very close. The hotel/room was always very clean however,... More

We chose this hotel for it's location, and because of previous good reviews on Trip Advisor. However, we were disappointed. The plus points are that the staff are wonderful and very helpful, the hotel is spotlessly clean, the wi-fi is free (assuming you can get a signal), and if you like a Continental breakfast you will be very well catered...

We stayed at May hotel for 5 nights in February 2013. The room was very tiny, but clean and warm. The remote control for the TV was quite a challenge; we had to call twice the reception for assistance… The staff was friendly but barely spoke English. Breakfast was very nice, only the table-cloths were always dirty and full of... More

Stayed three nights here. It's a nice little hotel, but the rooms are quite small. However, it was spotlessly clean and the staff make the place. Candan on reception is such a lovely man, very friendly and really helpful. We had a problem with out booking company and he was really patient and understanding.
