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.

The hotel was good value for the location compared with other hotels in the area. It was within easy walking distance to Galata bridge (about 10-15 minutes) as well as Ayia Sophia and the Blue Mosque (about 15 minutes). The rooms were smaller than we expected but were clean and serviced daily. The trams were a bit noisy but got... More

This hotel is in a great location and all of the main attractions are within walking distance. For the price, its a great value. The rooms are small, but clean. And the owner is great. I missed the airport shuttle that I had booked for my return flight due to my own error. But he went well out of his... More

The location of the hotel is ideal: the main attractions (Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar etc.) are within walking distance and you have plenty of choice with restaurants around. You'll reach Eminönu harbour in few minutes. The tram line goes just beside the hotel, making it easy to move around in the city (and to reach the airport by... More

The hotel is located in very accessible and reasonable location. It is clean. The hotel staff is excellent, very friendly, very cooperative and humble. Lobby is good and spacious. Rooms are reasonable. Good value for money. Lift is narrow. No Air Conditioning.

Booked a 3-beds-room for 5 nights which was really big enough. The room was clean. Breakfast was really more than enough. Neverthesless, if you wish a 5* hotel, the hotel Samil is not perfect for you. But if you look for a hotel with the perfect location for sightseeing in Istanbul and don't want to spend too much money, you... More

Me and my partner arrived at the Hotel to find our double room not ready. Instead we were given a triple room for one night. The next day we enquired about our room and we were shown a room that somebody else was still in. We were eventually given our room that afternoon. The lift in the hotel is very... More
