Hotel Novano is simply wonderful! The staff are so helpful and willing to go above and beyond to accommodate in any way they can. I was especially impressed with the hotel manager as he was so hospitable and friendly. It was like talking with an old friend each day! His stories, his advice, and his assistance truly made out trip... More

I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a hotel at the centre of the best sites seeing area with lots of good restaurants all within easy walking distance of the hotel. A small hotel with, I believe, 18 rooms which although not large are very clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is good.... More

A friend and I booked this hotel 'last minute' for a 1 night stop over in Istanbul. From the start they were incredibly helpful, arranging cheap shuttle services from and to both airports. The manager, Enver, really took time to help us get our bearings in the City and his staff were just as helpful. The room was cosy and... More

Hotel Novano is excellent by several criteria. It is located close to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia in central old Istanbul. Manager Enver Bayrak is extremely helpful and my room was spotlessly clean, overlooking the busy Akbyiyik Caddesi street, with dozens of crowded restaurants and bars. No lift, but excellent WiFi. Those who want more peace are advised to... More

I stayed at this hotel together with 3 of my female friends and had 2 rooms and upon request we got both of them with twin beds. The location couldn't have been better - it's a mere 5 min walk to the blue moschee and the Hagia Sophia and also to Topkai Palace. The Manager was extremely helpful with advise... More

Great location in the center of the old town in Istanbul. All staffs were very kind and helpful. Our room was upgraded to a big room at the top floor under the roof. Breakfast is good enough for the price. We would visit here again next time.

Perfect location, walking distance to the main attractions in Istanbul and surrounded by shops, bazaars and restaurants. Helpful staff, always ready to give explanations about how to get to several places.

We stayed in many hotels over a two month Europe trip, and the Hotel Novano was easily our favorite. You will not regret booking here. The hotel is in an excellent location, and you can walk to any of the main old city sights and the Sultanhamet tram stop. It is a less than 5 minute walk to the Blue... More
