The Hotel is very close to the Blue Mosque and Ste Sophie. The Bosphorus is a few minutes far from the Hotel. The location is Just Perfect. The staff is very professionnal and welcoming. A special compliment to Ali and Chef Zakeriyei at the roof restaurant: we enjoyed a lot our dinner! Nice view and very Good service.

My wife and I spent 5 nights at Hotel Avicenna for our 40th anniversary in mid-September. We loved the room and the balcony and the view of the Bosporus Sea and enjoyed watching the boats slowly gliding by. We ate in the hotel restaurant on a couple of occasions and were very surprised how good the food was. We were... More

The hotel is in an ideal location for the historic sites and situated in a quiet street. We were really impressed with our large, beautifully decorated room. Rooms have air conditioning and free WiFi. We found the staff friendly and they provided helpful information on tours and attractions.

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

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for your nice comment about our hotel. We appreciate your precious time spent on it! Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do about the fresh fruit juice, because we do provide regular fruit juices for free but the fresh one is always an extra. Also sorry about the absence of the bin in the... 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
