Nice hotel with a good prize. Very close to the old town. But the performance could be for sure better. The service team needs some upgrade. Breakfast can be better and there was nobody who was interested to solve any problem or ask for support. If you only need a bed - there are many cheaper places in this area!

Very cozy BB hotel, a home away from your home. Stayed at Topkapi room on 2 floor. Very clean hotel. Well placed in Sultanahmet 5 min walk to Eminonu and Marmaray station, Kapali Carsi and Sultanahmet square. You can reach hotel from Ataturk airport by metro + tram, need to change the station at Zeytinburnu and take a tram. Very... More

The hotel's room are a little be noisy if the hotel is full, couse the walls are very very thin!!! The young lady on the desk is a little bit rude and the wifi is unable on the upper flor. The position and the prize is very very good.

We stayed here by mistake. We had originally booked another hostel (Minel) that was closed down at the time of our visit and transferred us to this one. Despite not knowing what to expect, the hostel is a calm and comfortable place to stay. Very clean, nicely decorated, enough space in the room and even soap/shampoo was provided. The house... More

Great location being a very short uphill walk from the Gulhane tram stop. The airport is about an hour away by tram with metro transfer. The basement room was cozy, but the shower was not cordoned off from the rest of the bathroom, so water would easily escape and flood the toilet area, rendering the floor mat useless. The high...

Wonderful stay at Anatolia Suites St Sophia. Sevim could not have been more helpful in every way - walked us to a nearby restaurant (Ziya) which was excellent, waited with us for taxis and even let us store luggage with them while we travelled around Turkey. Nothing too much trouble and genuine, friendly service above the norm. The room was... More

Even before we arrived we had several emails from Sevim helping us. Once we got there we were very impressed and pleased. The rooms were spotless, the breakfast fine, the staff goes out of their way to help with recommendations, reservations, they mailed our postcards and kept our luggage for a week while we went to Cappadocia. It's 5 minutes... More
