4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We spent four enjoyable nights in the Avicenna Hotel. The location is, in my view, great, in the heart of Sultanahmet only minutes from both the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia. It is not on the liveliest, loudest street, which means it is possible to get some sleep. As mentioned in other reviews, the rooms are very small and it... More

This hotel was recommended to us by a friend. It is in a perfect location in Sultanahmet, especially for the Blue Mosque, Haghia Sophia and Topkapi Palace. The staff were very friendly and helpful on arrival. We did not like our room (avoid rooms in basement!) and were quickly changed to another off the main reception (room 111) at the... More

I'm afraid this was one of my worst stays in a hotel. I travel a fair bit on both business and travel and this was the smallest room I have ever seen. The lights from the garden court meant my room was lit up all night and the staff were not helpful when it came to changing rooms. 3 requests... More

We had the pleasure of staying here for 4 nights in August. The staff were all too happy to help with questions and suggestions. A truly great team of professionals. The lobby is small but very nice. The room was a good size. There was a balcony off of our room that faced the Blue Mosque. The view was stunning.... More

My partner and I really enjoyed our stay in the conveniently located Avicenna Hotel. It is only steps away from the Blue Mosque (Sultanahmet), Hippodrome, and Hagia Sophia. The tram is only a 5 minute walk through the Hippodrome and will take you to wherever you should need - it even connects to the subway taking you to the airport.... More

We stayed here for a long weekend in August and had a very pleasant stay. The hotel is on a fairly peaceful street a few minute walk from a street of restaurants, bars and minimarkets. Its also about a 10 minute walk from Sultanahmet Tram station and several of the main tourist sites of Istanbul. Rooms were a fair size... More

Friendly hotel decorated in traditional style with superb location in Sultanahment district within minutes of major must-see attractions like the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Aghia Sophia, and the Basilisk Cistern. Good breakfast but some of the bedrooms at the back of the hotel are quite small and are close to the railway line (which thankfully was non-operational when we stayed... More

Hotel is in great location in walking distance to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. There were many shops/restaurants in walking distance to the hotel; however, to get to Taksim square or to other areas was a far commute; could take hours depending upon the traffic (which is horrendous). The areas itself is quiet without much traffic or noise, due... More
