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.

Artefes came recommended. Good light double room, breakfast and cosy roof terrace views. As this was our first visit to Istanbul we were grateful for the front desk help, particularly Mr Kenan who was fantastic in suggestions and sorting things out. Convenient for the Attaturk airport, old city and museums, bazaar, trams and boat trips. After Istanbul we briefly visited... More

We, as a group of 21 persons, stayed at Artefes Hotel once more (last time was in Oct.2008). Everything was great! We would start the day with a good breakfast enjoying the view of the city. The view from the rooftop is simply magnificent! Though the hotel is in a super central location, it's quiet at night. The front desk... More

We had the pleasure of spending 10 nights at Artefes Hotel in July. Thanks to Booking.com we were able to find this Ottoman traditional hotel easily. Despite the fact that we are low maintenance couple, everything we asked for was delivered. The front desk were always attentive and very helpful, especially it being our first time in Istanbul. They offered... More

I have had the pleasure of being a guest at Artefes Hotel for the 6th time - of a time period spanning to 2004. Each and every stay has been a source of rest, wellness and pleasure. I don't think words alone can express the courtesy, hospitality, assistance and professionalism exhibited by Artefes staff - they have been accommodating, helpful... More

Hotel was very nice and staff was friendly. From the roof you can see Blue Mosque and the sea. There is also many small and nice restaurants nearby. Several attractions are within walking distance. We liked the hotel's layout and the fact that the hotel also has a gym and a sauna.

Close to all the major sights in Old town, with great view of Blue mosque from terrace. Terrace is a good place to take the buffet breakfast which we enjoyed. Room was a bit small, but we arrived in early hours of morning so didn't request a change. 2 lights in room weren't working & despite bringing it to management... More
