The location was excellent, the stuff was the most polite I have ever seen, altough they didnt speak english very well. The breakfast was decent, the room was big, clean and had strong wi-fi. It was with view on the street and you can hear all the cars and trams, so it may be a problem for someone who has... More

Arrived in the early hours of the morning and checked in quickly. The double room was quite small but the location made up for this. Breakfast was included but on the first morning there was not a great deal left when I arrived at 9am. Other mornings there was a good range of options available. The hotel was within walking...

this hotel is very well located and, although a budget hotel, very well run. The room was small but clean. The management were extremely helpful and always ready to assist. I arrived at 7am and, although my room was not ready, I was offered another room to shower in and my bags were stored until my room was ready. I... More

If you are looking for a cheapest hotel in the city center probably this hotel is perfect and clean, they have kinda poor breakfast but it's enough to have a light breakfast.. Rooms and bathrooms are small but good enough to spend the night just for sleep and spend the day going around Istanbul.. I liked the view from our... More

Well located and clean hotel.Poor breakfast,tiny bathroom and lack of english language from the personel (although they were polite and kind). A little bit noisy because of tram but with little money you are in the centre of the most important monuments of Istanbul.

Small clean rooms and great central location in the city centre. However, with a breakfast that is not going to send Harry Potter home to his mother praising the cuisine the hotel does leave a bit to be desired. For example, there is no elevator to the first floor reception and after this the elevator is tiny. Noise from the... More

We stayed one week at the Samil Hotel. Very, very clean rooms; comfortable beds with crisp white linens. Friendly staff, even cut up a huge plate of fresh fruit for us while we were relaxing in the lounge :) Excellent location for walking to the Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar. The staff facilitated nice cruise tours for us and... More
