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

Helpful staff...Decent rooms... poor heating system so avoid in winter. Great location in a charming neighborhood close to residential areas and two outstanding small mosques of excellent Ottoman signature

The Artefes Hotel has great staff and is in a good location for getting into central Istanbul. However, the double room I had was one of the smallest rooms I have ever stayed in and the breakfast was mediocre at best, while the gym and sauna are so poor it is not worth using them. All in all if you... More

Great value for money and great position. In 6 minutes you are right in front of the Blue Mosque and from the terrace you can enjoy breakfast with the view over the sea on one side and on the mosque on the other. Continental breakfast and great turkish tea. A plus is also the free one-way ride to or from... More

I have stayed in Artefes Hotel on 02.12.2014 and I loved it. The hotel is located in the middle of Sultanahmet mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilic.. They are just walking distance from the hotel. The internet connection was so fast. The staff's hospitality was nice, especially Mr Serkan(the receptionist) was very kind and friendly. I am looking forward for my next... More

We only had 1 night at the Artefes, as we finished our trip in Turkey. We chose the hotel based on good reviews and location. The location is definitely perfect if you want to explore the old city (Sultanahmet). We walked from the ferry down (and up and down) to the Artefes. Alternately, it would be a short walk from...

This was my 3rd stay at Arteries and it is value for money, breakfast was a little poor this time and the service from the second shift was not as good as the first but still a good hotel in a good location.
