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

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
