This hotel is both ideally placed for sightseeing (the Blue Mosque is only 5-10 mins walk up the hill) and for local places to each (probably 50 plus places in a 400 yard radius). Going back to the staff, they were most helpful with giving us local information, organising transfers to and from the airport and even giving me a... More

We needed a hotel that was near the main attractions in what turned out to be one of the world's most beautiful cities. My wife had unfortunately broken her ankle,6 weeks prior to departure so we were rather anxious about her ability to walk around Istanbul. We should not have worried, the city provides all forms of transport and there... More

We stayed for a long weekend. The staff were very helpful & pleasant. Overall the hotel is good, but I feel some areas need a little bit of attention, such as the bathroom look a bit run down. Great breakfast, nice clean comfy beds!

This hotel is in a very good location, close to main attractions Sultanahmet, Hagia Sophia, Big Bus Tour etc. The hotel is ideal for a short stay however I wouldn't recommend for more than 4 days. The beds are extremely soft and you wake up with a back ache and breakfast is appalling. The staff are very friendly and helpful,... More

Cracking little hotel in a superb location. Everything is within walking distance. Literally loads and loads of restaurants and cafes right next door!!!! Ideal location if you want to sightsee. Staff appear miserable but we found them helpful and approachable. Highly recommended it. The wifi was free and fast.

Seven of us stayed in the Avicenna Hotel in 3 double rooms and 1 single each on different floors. All of us agreed that the staff were excellent and were always friendly helpful and very accommodating. On two occasions we saw two different members of the reception staff when we were out and about. Both approached us in the same... More

This hotel is situated in the heart of the 'tourist part' of Istanbul, which is great for some, not so great for others. Unlike a lot of the other places in the area it is located off the main road and therefore is quiet and probably a bit more relaxed. The building is spacious and well maintained and the room...

A 5-min walk from Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia means that the location of this hotel is ideal and possibly the best thing about it. Rated at 4-stars, we unfortunately didn't experience top level quality or service. The first room we were given was small with the shower so compact that our elbows touched the sides. After complaining, the second... More

The hotel is pleasing from the front in good locations however the room provided was small and has seen better days. The balcony is in poor condition and looks towards the sea over rotting and empty buildings. The balcony room door was poor quality and not easy to securely lock. The staff at front desk were functional. The breakfast was... More

It's an excellent hotel with very comfortable location, easy to reach on foot the main attractions and museums, and also near there are a lot of restaurants and cafes. Beautiful decorated and clean rooms with all useful things and free wi-fi! Also I had a very delicious breakfast every day. It was so good experience to stay in this place!... More
