Recently stayed at the hotel, lovely friendly staff, our room was clean and tidy, breakfast was nice, the staff were very helpful, in walking distance to bus stops, taxis can be waved down outside the hotel, we would stay there again.

The hotel is placed in a good place, you are close enough to istiklal street and you can easily take a taxi to old istanbul and sultan ahmed side. The staff are nice. Thier breakfast buffet is just bread and cheese, jams so don't expect a modern breakfast to be served. The room design is nice for first 10 minutes,... More

Hotel Santa Hill, in terms of location, is very close to the lively neighborhood Taksim and Beyoglu, where you can find different cuisines, bars, cafes, night clubs. The hotel itself is pretty decent considering its cheap rate. The rooms are clean; yet the cleaner ladies did not do much after our first night. The staff are friendly and helpful. However,... More

I don't really understand all the outstanding comments. The hotel is just... ok. We were 9 people during new year's eve week and things started to be messy since the beginning, when they made confusion with the rooms. Long story short, we had to change rooms after the first night, which is not pleasant. I was sharing a 4-people room... More

We stayed in Santa Hill for four nights on a short trip to Istanbul. The hotel is located close to Taksim place and we didn't use public transport at all during our stay because everything was within walking distance for us. The rooms are spacious and equipped with air conditioning. The interior wasn't exactly to our taste but that didn't... More

We arrived at the Hotel Santa Hill the first week in September and stayed for only 3 days as part of our Turkish and Greek vacation, although now I wish we could have stayed for much longer. Upon arriving to the hotel, Yassar, the friendly man at the front desk, kindly greeted us and immediately made us feel so welcome.... More

We enjoyed the location of this hotel (in the Taksim area of Istanbul). There were lots of restaurants and shops and it wasn't too far to walk into the Sultanhamet area. The staff were quite helpful too and the rooms were clean though a bit shabby. However, despite me making the reservation 3 months in advance, the proprietors put us... More

I've been in many countries and have stayed in many different hotels before, but it was the very first time that I realised that a bad hotel can absolutely ruin your trip! I'm not a picky person but this hotel did not even have the basic things that a hotel should have. We were 8 people and stayed at Santa... More

I have been in Santa Hill with my friends for 4 days. I find the place decent, nothing great but neither bad. The rooms were good size and clean. We found our room quite dark though, not much external light coming through and very poor of internal lights. The duvet are quite hard, not sure if that’s normal. We asked... More
