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

We have booked this hotel via booking com and it was really not easy to find (but we were given the wrong directions), but when we found it - it was perfectly located in the city centre. If you have luggage - they will help you, because the elevator is situated on the second floor (don't know how - but... More

I stayed at this hotel for only one night. The location of the hotel is excellent, walking distance from all main attractions in Istanbul. The rooms are small but clean. And it is quiet. The staff is nice and helpful. And it is an excellent value for the location.

very good location, very close to tram station, easy to find it for the people come here the first time. Close to the palace, blue mosque. The room is small, and the bed is very small too, but very clean and quiet.
