Very well located (close to the tram and the main touristic places), very friendly people and nice rooms... all this for a very good price. We really recommend this hotel and will certainly come back for our next trip to Istanbul (if we have the luck to come back!)

Don't bother searching for accommodation in Istanbul, just book this place and you won't be disappointed! First of all, I have to mention the lovely staff, they became like family within hours of meeting! They went out of their way to make sure guests were having a good time (throwing a free bbq dinner one night and also taking us... More

Our arrangements worked out perfect from the minute we arrived at the airport in Istanbul. Metin arranged our pick up at the airport, he drove us directly to the hotel where we were warmly greeted. The staff are all very friendly and offered some excellent suggestions for our brief stay in this wonderful city. The hotel location proved to be... More

We had stayed 6 nights in this very friendly place. Hotel is situated in the heart of Sultanahmet district, just 5 minutes walk from Haghia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque and millions of shish kebabs and kofte restaurant. Although it's a very busy part of the very busy city, Minel is situated on the small narrow back-street. You can find... More

Hard to find location,but only just off the main road and within walking distance of all the attractions in the old town. Very clean and quiet hotel,with a bed and breakfast type feeling. Staff are very friendly though do not know much English. We recommend this hotel for those wanting an inexpensive but friendly experince ata great location.

We arrived early from the cruise port (Taxi charged us 15 Euros) and our room was not yet ready as it was only 10:00am and normal check in was in... More

We are just over the jet lag from our trip to Turkey. It is a fabulous country to visit. The people, services, food and transportation systems were beyond our expectations. Everyone should go to Istanbul once in their life time...what a city!! The Minel hotel is located very close to the all the attractions and right across the street from... More

We stayed at Minel for five days and it was absolutely pleasant. Firstly, the location is fantastic- it is so close to all of the things you want to see. The rooms are very affordable, as well as clean and tidy. But the thing that sells the place is the staff! They offered us suggestions on what to see and... More
