My girlfriends and I chose this hotel because of its good location, price, and positive reviews. Do not be fooled by the positive reviews. At around midnight on our first night, someone with key card access to the room tried to enter the room. Fortunately we had used the chain lock so the person couldn't enter. We were so scared...

We had a minor problem with leaky bathroom. Overall great experience! This was our second stay in the past two years in this hotel. The location is great. You can walk to all the monuments etc. The rooms are OK. The morning breakfast was good although it seemed that there were less items this time than our first visit in... More

We stayed at this hotel in June 2014. I've seen better hotels but I've rated this for the value for money. The location - is one of the best you can have, in the old city with all important attractions at 5 - 10 min to walk distance; The rooms - rather small but this is very common in the... More

Need I say more, if you re-book an hotel then you were happy the first time. The Artefes has many things to recommend it, not only the staff who were unfailingly polite and helpful ( thanks to all ) the lavish breakfasts, but in Istanbul, a miracle, an hotel within walking distance of the main sights but quiet and peaceful,...

We stayed at the Artefes for 4 nights in January. We found the staff extremely helpful and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable with a good maid service provided every morning. The shower and bathroom were also very good. The breakfast buffet left a bit to be desired but wasn't unpleasant by any means. All in all a good... More
