The hotel is located in the area of Sultanahmet, all of the major attractions of the old town just a few dozen meters. We got a very small room on the ground floor - in a smaller room, I have never lived. In general clean but stuffy and very closely. Breakfast included, usual breakfast buffet on the system, but it...

As a single women I was worried about where I would stay in Istanbul for 2 nights. Broken Column was perfect. The area around the hotel is busy and felt safe. The Blue Mosque is just around the corner as are other key sites. The staff was very friendly (especially Hakan) and within a half hour of arriving he had... More

A nice, clean and priceworthy hotel in perfect location in the old town close to all the "must see" sightseeingspots. Very helpfull staff that gladly recomend places to go based on your preferences. It's not a luxiurous hotel but well worth the money and a good 4 points on a scale 1-5.

I stayed in the Broken Column Hotel for one night this past Sunday and it was a very pleasant experience especially Hakan who went above and beyond to ensure all my needs were met. In addition to arranging for my airport transportation and helping me finding a suitable power adapter for my tablet he also took me for a quick... More

We stayed at this hotel at the end of March this year for about a week, and it was great! Located just by the side of Blue Mosque, it takes only a two minute walk from the hotel to land you up in the main Sultanahmet Square, in the garden squeezed between Blue Mosque and Aya Sofiya. From this hotel... More

I would be happy to recommend this small hotel to anyone visiting Istanbul's historic peninsula. The hotel has everything needed for a short visit, including a good local breakfast and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Super friendly staff. Great location 2 minutes from the Blue Mosque. Very comfortable rooms, very clean, and a nice breakfast spread. I'm definitely looking forward to staying here again the next time I visit Istanbul.

The staff at Hotel Broken Column is wonderful. Everyone is pleasant and helpful. Several of the front desk workers went beyond the call of duty to help us locate unusual things we wanted to do, assist with airline problems, and deal with a taxi driver who was trying to cheat us. The location is great--in the heart of the historic... More

The Broken Column hotel was an excellent choice, located just behind the Agia Sofia church, on a chic street with numerous taverns and cosy coffee shops. The staff is very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The rooms are very clean, comfortable, very good taste in decorations, the bathrooms have a nice design with attention to the aesthetics. The breakfast is consistent,... More
