A friend and I spent several days at the Magnificent Hotel, and we had a very nice stay. The location is great - it is very close to Sultanahmet Mosque, but it is on a quieter side street. That being said, it is close to a large number of shops and restaurants, so it is still very conveniently located. The... More

On the plus side, this place is in a relatively nice position being quite close to the Little Sophia, and the internal decorations are not bad. But without a good service, it's nothing. Below is our complain letter to Expedia (with some mods for booking info) for your reference. ============= This is my official complaint to Expedia and this "4star"... More

We were completely new at finding our way through Istanbul. On foot as night fell, local restaurant and store owners helped us find the hotel down the hilly cobblestones. Similarly, we found our way uphill to tour Sultanahmet over the next few days, using maps provided by the hotel. Staff assisted us with a variety of requests. Room was very... More

I was a bit taken back by the room we were given, very small, and the hardest bed I have ever slept on. The worst part was the nights since it was so loud due to the street traffic and people. It was very hard to sleep. As this was such a poor choice my wife wanted to return home... More

We booked through hotels.com. Ended up with the basement room. No bed bugs, but felt a bit like a dungeon. Cleanliness was poor, found old hair in the shower drain. Noise from the street was very loud, kept us up some nights. Area is convenient to main attractions, but be prepared to walk up hill. Breakfast was good one day... More

We later foun out it's somewhere down the road from Blue Mosque. The moment we checked-in we're glad that the receptionist knows a... More

Nice little hotel on a cute little street leading to the Hippodrome and Hagia Sofia , some 10 min walk. A bit far from the tramway, but its downhill . Walking distance to the Bazaar and the Hagia Sofia . Theres no lift so ask for first floor, as climbing to 3rd is a bit tough with luggage. Magnificent view... More

Stayed at this hotel for 10 days and must say haven't had any problems whatsoever. The staff and management are very helpful and welcoming and even though many can't speak very good English, they tried their best to answer any of my queries. The rooms are clean and tidy and I think it is very good value for money accommodation.... More

The hotel is located within walking distance of almost all the historic places such as the Blue Mosque, Hegha Sophia, Top Copy PLace etc. The hotel provides neat n cozy atmosphere. The management is very friendly.
