Welcome was warm and friedly. Staff was very helpful and compitend. Location to tourist places is very good. You can reach most of the places by foot. Room was small but clean. Breakfast Buffet is rich. Nice place to stay in Istanbul.

I zeroed in on Artefes after reading reviews on tripadvisor, and I did not regret my decision. The hotel is located in a narrow alley in the Sultanahmet area, and is very close to the major sights of the Old City. The Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia are a mere 10-minute walk away (and I walk slow). The staff is... More

Great little hotel in the cobbled streets of the old city with friendly reception staff and offers of apple or Turkish tea every time I returned after a day of sightseeing. It's barely more than 5 mins walk to major sights and there are (average) restaurants a stone's throw from the front door. They threw in return airport transfers for... More

I stayed here for five nights. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk to the Blue Mosque. The staff were extremely friendly and courteous and helpful. My room was very clean and comfortable. I thought the hotel would have a gym but the equipment is in a dark basement and did not appear to work. The breakfast is served... More

My girlfriend and I had a very good stay at Artefest in the last Christmas. The location and the environment of the Artefes is good. The hotel is located near the city centre, and the room is spacious and clean. But what makes this hotel recommendable is its breakfast buffet and its staff. The breakfast provided was the best among... More
