You would hard pushed to find a more perfectly located hotel for seeing Istanbul's Old City sights. A few minutes walk from a tramway station and the Grand Bazaar. A small and friendly hotel. Ask for a room on the 4th floor, in the eaves for a better view. Be assured, you do get used to the ceiling after bumping... More

This hotel has such a nice and chill atmosphere and the staff treat you so well, always with a smile on their faces, you feel like home immediately. I love the harem style, and it's also very central with a tram stop right around the corner. Super great value for the money!

just got back from my second stay at this hotel. The staff at this hotel are always eager to help and service is great. Special thanks to all the front/reception staff. The hotel itself is close to the metro but in a quiet lane off the noisy main road. The breakfast was ok and the room was adequate but as... More

Perfect location if you are staying only few days. The main sights are on walking distance. Excellent and helpful service in reception. The restaurant is ok and the food was very good, but you didn't always get what you ordered. The breakfast is very Turkish. Our room was small, clean and silent, Free WiFi to top it all!

From the time we arrived the staff have been welcoming and so willing to assist with anything at all. It is hard to believe there would be better service anywhere. Nil was professional and so well prepared. What a fantastic place.

This hotel gave me the best experience I could have. From the start, the staff (Davut, Hasan, Rabia, Israfel and Nil) were the best. They also helped me arrange a Mercedes taxi to the airport with very nominal charges. The breakfast was complimentary and very good. The Haram restaurant had great food and wonderful service. I totally recommend this hotel... More

Balin Hotel is an excellent hotel if you want to visit the main monuments in the old city of Istambul. It has also a good restaurant where you can eat traditional Turkish food. Clean rooms and very helpful staff.
