I liked the location of Ottoman's Life Hotel which is in Fatih. It takes about 10 minutes to reach the major sights in Sultanahmet by tram. From Ataturk Airport it is a direct ride on Metro Line 1A (Aksaray Station). Historia shopping mall is on the opposite side of the road. The lobby and rooms are nicely furnished in an... More

We traveled to Istanbul in June 2012 with our 2 year old twin boys. The hotel was nice but the rooms were very small and cramped. The staff was helpful and friendly and assisted in planning our daily travels. The room could have looked bigger and better had the furniture and decor not been so loud and garish in their... More

Stayed few nights at this hotel.Very nice rooms and clean.Beds were made daily.Towels changed.Food was good.Good price.A big selection for breakfast. The decoration is beautiful. There was a mall not too far,a good place to shop.Easy to get to the historical places.The hotel has a free parking too.Free wi-fi,but annoying..every time you logged had to type the password.

My wife and I booked this hotel through Priceline's Name Your Price deal. We picked the Sultanahmet neighborhood, but this hotel is actually in the Fatih district. We stayed at this hotel for three nights. In hindsight we would have much rather stayed in Taksim (where all the action is). 1st night: When we arrived at the hotel for check-in... More

Stayed at this hotel which is situated in the Fatih district (about 10/15 min tram ride into the Sultanahmet area). Found it for relatively good deal on Agoda. Good place to stay if you want to be outside all the chaos and harassment that was incessant in Sultanahmet (I was traveling with my sister and as two young girls in... More

Nice hotel, but a little far from the centre of things. Also, the google maps location is nowhere near the actual location, something to bear in mind if you're walking!! The rooms are nice, different decor which is good. Staff friendly, not great english. The wifi is a really annoying system, where you have to get a new alphanumeric password... More

I am not sure how exactly the stars are awarded in may cities. This boutique hotel is absolutely fine, but I am not sure if it warrants 5 stars. (more like 3.5 or 4). On the plus side: Great FREE buffet breakfast - in a classy dining room. FREE WiFi Value for $$: The breakfast for 2 and wifi alone... More

What a LOVELY boutique hotel this is!! Located in the heart of Istanbul, close to the transit and across the street from a major shopping center. The rooms are decorated in different colors with ornate velvet draperies and golden fixtures.. A couple of the rooms have large round beds with canopies.... luxurious!!! The decor of the hotel is reminiscent of... More

We have chosen this hotel to spend our honey-moon and it was even better than we expected: really beautiful spacious room, nice helpful staff, good breakfast-buffet. The ebterior is traditional and I would say luxirious in a good way! The location is also a win: nexto to the big shopping center - Historia and close to the tram-line that goes... More
