Compared to previous stay in istanbul with the same price range, this was value for money. Service was very good, always a smile in the lobby. They did have problems with acces to roof terrasse and one air con dripping water, but these will hopefully be fixed.

Slam doors on people and so unkind to all travelers very prejudice ! All staff smoke right in the lobby and are very in professional for hotel staff. Rooms dirty! Don't answer questions in a kind matter and try and charge foreigners more for information that any hotel would be happy to tell you. Like where to get stamps or... More

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel's location is excellent for sightseeing, it is just five minute walk from the main tourist attractions around Hippodrom (Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi, etc.). Small but nice and quiet budget hotel. Rooms are clean and equipped with all basic facilities. Unfortunately the breakfast room is too small to accommodate all guests... More

Very bad hotel staff. Hotel Staff tries their best to dupe the guests by selling overpriced tickets to cruise etc. Not clean. Rooms very small...Would not recommend anybody this hotel. The only good this about this hotel is the location.

I stayed here with my wife in the end of august. The room was very clean and very comfortable. We stayed in the suite room on the 3rd floor, we had a balcony with sea view which was really great to sit in the evening and have a rest. The breakfast serves in the restaurant of the hotel till 10:30.... More

Ottomans Tugra is a conveniently located budget hotel in the old city. The lobby is small and simply decorated, but on the day we visited it was clean, and the front desk attendant was friendly, so when we needed a room on short notice we had high hopes for this hotel. After spending a night there, however, I can’t recommend... More

Stayed there 4 nights early May with a travel companion.. Established previous correspondence with the Front Desk Manager, who was helpful enough to accommodate our early check-in at 11am... And literally that's when the comfort ended. There was a renovation project which wasn't informed, room was small (maybe as it's standard type) and located on the basement next to the... More
