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

Where do I start? Let's see...how about the fact that my travel companion had to sleep on the sofa next to the snoring (literally), smelly, diaper-clad puppy that belongs to the owners (who live in the hotel)? Why, you ask? Because my friend and I caught a red-eye flight into Istanbul. As soon as we saw the availability of the... More

I stayed there for 3 nights in the end of March and beginning of April. The weather was great, it was not necessary to use the air conditioning, but I tried to use it just to check and I couldn't make it work. I didn't call anyone cause I would not use it anyway. Bathroom was clean, there was hair... More

Where to start? First let me say I've stayed in hundreds of hotels around the world so I feel qualified to comment. The front door is locked so we had to bang on it for several minutes to even get in. Upon entering, we encounter a dog running around in a diaper (not kidding). Smelled like a kennel. Animals everywhere.... More

I visited Istanbul in January 2012 with my wife and son. I wondered about my wife's feelings on first visit of Istanbul, before we stayed usually in 5 star hotels. This time due to limited budget we decided to try hotels which is close to ancient places in Istanbul, especially to Old City, where you can visit Blue Mosque, Aya... More

Just got back from three nigths at the Hilfon. Me and a friend shared a nice clean small twin-bed-room with private bathroom, located right next to the lobby, which meant that we could easily hear people talk during the night, but that was ok - we were so tired every day from walking the streets of Istanbul, that we would...
