Mahir has greeted us every eve and morning, is so helpful, like having a full booking centre for all activities, events, and dining. Today Mahir helped us with our cruise on the Bosphorus Cruise,, planned our dinner overlooking the Blue Mosque, and our room is magnificent. It is very safe, as the hotels work together very well and this street... More

PROS: The staff is very kind and helpful in suggesting us what-to-do and where-to-eat in Istanbul. They understand also a little bit of Italian. We weren't able to find an Istanbulkart (the magnetic card to use for the public transport, such as tram or ship), and the kind receptionist gave us his own card as a gift. This act of... More

Our home for four nights, the Novano has an unbeatable location. The central attractions are all within easy walking distance, as are hundreds of restaurants, small shops and tram and bus stops. Our room was small but clean and fully functional, with a small French balcony overlooking the mostly quiet street. Breakfast was served in the basement; this was somewhat... More

Stayed here for 3 days in august and would highly recommend it if you are looking to stay around sultanahmet. Located 10mins walk from the sultanahmet tram stop, walking south through the park (literally walking between the hagia Sofia and blue mosque), its on the quiet end of a street full of bars and restaurants. It's not hard to find... More

I was expecting low performance from this hotel as it was the only one with available rooms the time that all Istanbul was fully booked, but was really surprised how the hotel is nice and the stuff was really helpful and polite starting with the manager who is taking care of the hotel himself to smallest employee there. I will... More

Pro's: clean, neat, good service, comfortable, good breakfasts, good value. A special thanks to Mahir for helping us book our bus ticket - going beyond the call of duty and even offering the use of his private credit card. Allie also helped us when we asked for extra bedding. Con: room is small, but I believe that is normal for... More

I stayed in the hotel for the third time during July 2013 and once again it was a pleasant and relaxing experience. Excellent value for money. The staff members (reception and dining room) are very friendly and helpful, you always feel welcome when you enter the hotel. The breakfast was very good and the dining room neat and well decorated.... More

This hotel is furnished in the modern style. We had a room on the first floor facing the street but didn't have any issues with noise. A lovely breakfast is included. There is a tv in the room with English channels. It is located a quick walk from the Blue Mosque and Aya Sophia in the tourist district with lots... More
