If you are have time and budget limit when travelling to Istanbul, this hotel is the best option. It's in the central area of the city which enables you to go to many tourist attractions in a short time very easily. The staff are helping and organized. Happy that I chose this hotel during my trip.

We stayed at Avicenna for three nights in a 2nd floor room. It was quiet and comfortable and very well situated for all the sites in Istanbul. The rooms and bathrooms are small but fine for a short visit. The staff are polite and helpful and recommended a good restaurant for dinner.

The staff were fantastic in sorting out problems and organizing taxis etc. Only downside-the fixtures etc are staring to look tacky- we had to... More

for my first time in Turkey I didn't plane anything but the hotel and flight return via British Airway. My only requirement was to go for a traditional and typical hotel, not for those chain. This hotel was better than expected. Avicenna hotel is a small, oriental, very charming hotel built in marble. It has a small garden and a... More

We recently stayed here for a few nights with friends whilst visiting Istanbul on a British Airways holiday package. We opted for a room upgrade at additional cost which in hindsight was a waste of time as when we arrived we were put in small rooms on different floors and when we asked why, we were told they were full...

We stayed at this hotel in July 2014. The hotel was recommended by British Airways. It is on the budget side of things and so you get what you pay for. The rooms are small. Whilst clean, they could do with some modernisation. Some of the wood flooring in one of our rooms was loose due to water escaping from... More
