This in a sort of small hotel, without food service, with rooms equipped with a small kitchen. They also provide a daily room cleaning. For cooking, there are not too many tools, but maybe if you need some more they 'll help you; we did not ask anything, but the staff have been always nice. We've been in a room... More

A'la house is definitely the best option in Istanbul. The location is great, close to all the touristic attractions in Sultanahmet and with easy access to public tramway to go to any other place in the city. A lot of convenience stores and mini-markets around the hotel. The staff is helpful and welcoming, always available for anything you could need.... More

Although at the beginning we had a bit of a clash with the owner things got better quickly and I have to admit that this place has been a very nice place to stay. No frills but everything in working order and the kitchenette in the room for 3 turned out to be a great thing to have to cook... More

Location is very good as you can walk to all tourist attractions but keep in mind that it is downhill and it is quite a steep uphill/downhill walk. Supermarket and post office are also close. Post office has a very good exchange rates and you can find it also at the airport - it is the last one in the... More

This aparthotel is located in the historical centre (Sultanahmet- Fatih) near the main historical attractions (Blue Mosque, Topkaki Palace, Hagia Sophya and so on). Moreover, it is next to Cemberlitas tram station (3 minutes by foot through a steep street). You will enjoy a breathtaking view from the terrace on the top of the apart hotel. I have to underline...

Father and son team that run this place are fantastic. It's super clean and comfortable, with a fantastic rooftop terrace with beautiful views of nearby mosques...and the waterfront. When we were there, there was a birds' nest on the far side of the roof with adorable babies we could watch. Place is only a short, authentic (as opposed to touristy)... More

Very helpful staff, bigger rooms than most places, great amenities with kitchen and ideal location. Only negative is there is no lift. So it might be a little difficult if you have joint problems. Overall good experience and would recommend.

We spent a great week in this hotel! Istanbul is a very huge city extended to Asian and European part, thus this central located Hotel is a perfect place for tourist. It is very easy to reach all famous sightseeings: Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Erebatan Sarnichi and Topkapi Palace are in the pedestrian accessibility!))) Another nice complement to this hotel...
