Good Location in the heart of the touristic area. Nice roof cafe view and good breakfast. Clean room and comfortable beds. Budget hotel for couples. Availability of HAMMAM is an option with good offers.

This hotel is located within walking distance of all the major and well know tourist attractions, yet the area is quiet and nice. The staff is so nice and welcoming and the hotel has a lovely terrace where you simply must see the sunset. Nice clean rooms as well.

We enjoy the quietness of the location but we can find restaurants and sundry shop just infront of he hotel. The busy area is very close, 5 min walk. the terrace has dual views; the blue mosque and the sea.

Very nice hotel with helpful and polite staff. Breakfast was splendid with a gorgeous view from the breakfast room. (April was too early for the roof terrace.) Clean everywhere. Nice restaurants close by.

We stayed here in March, had an excellent 5 days, the staff were extremely helpful, the rooms very comfortable and clean. Good breakfast, We would highly recommend this hotel. We have been traveling to Istanbul every year since 2002, Artefes has been our favourite hotel, it's within walking distance of most of the major tourist attractions.

Great location, sea view, 3 minutes walking distance to Blue Mosque, quiet neighbourhood, friendly, smiling staff...Don't let the minor issues like broken coat hanger spoil it for you. You cannot go wrong with Artefes hotel. :-) Ivica, Croatia
