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

The best part about this hotel is the location. A 5 min walk to Blue Mosque/ Hagia Sophia and 2 blocks from the Arasta Bazaar and tons of restaurants. During our stay, the AC unit in our room did not work for two nights. The hotel began repairs on the unit during our stay and we came home in the... More

The hotel is well located, the room and the breakfast is nice. The problem we had was with some people of the staff. They treated us with indifference, without clarify the problems and charguing 15 euros for us of things of the minibar that we had not consumed.

Avicenna is a great hotel, it was very clean and a brilliant location for all the main sites in Sultanhamet. The staff in the hotel were very friendly and helped us booking activities. The breakfast was great and had good variety each day. Our room had a sea view. Definitely more than I'd expected for the cheap package we'd booked.
