A nice hotel overall. I wouldn't call it four-star exactly although they are reaching for it. The rooftop terrace is lovely. We were there for a wedding and the reception was on the terrace and it was fabulous - very memorable. However during our stay we were fortunate that our air-conditioning was working. Several of the other guests had rooms... More

Rooms weren't what we expected, one room was good, but the other two stank of smoke and were so much smaller than the good room, even though they were the same price and specification. Also, we got billed for a phone call that wasn't made since we hadn't got back at that time and at the night before we were... More

The hotel is located in an alleyway off the main road.Make sure your driver has the address or knows where it is.Our driver spent near an hour looking for it until I gave him the address.A majority of people in Istanbul do NOT speak English,so communication is a big problem.At the hotel only 1 receptionist speaks fluent English,so it was...

Great place, friendly and helpful personal. Room is wonderful. Never was feeling so much welcome then here. A little bit far away from the center but that's why I booked it. There are many other possibilities to discover Istanbul. After all I recommand this hotel.

This hotel would be great if it would be closer to Istanbul downtown. By the way the hotel is good, and clean, located in a nice sea area, the service is professional and rich and good quality breakfast.

Elite hotel was exactly what we were looking for when we went. The rooms were beautiful, the food was excellent, the location was perfect...but the real seller was the rooftop pool. Oh My God! The view. Add a drink in your hand and listen to the calls to prayer throughout the day and you will melt into a serious state... More

In order to catch our late night flight out of the airport on the Asian side, we choose the Elite Hotel Kucukyali. It's quite a far distance from the airport on the European side. It met all of our criteria for our late night escape. The hotel is located in a very nice area with the sea only a few... More

This hotel is located in the Asian side and is quite far from any touristic sightseeing. It's not easy to find it for the first time, but otherwise the accessibility is not a problem, "if you are ready to take bus/ minibus or pay 30 euros taxi trips!" There is a bus stop close to the hotel which makes it... More

I did not have a good experience at this hotel...and would not recommend to anyone! Not sure how they achieved this 4 star rating, but it is definitely not...by U.S.standard, it is really less than a 3 star. Hotel was dirty and old, looks like they have done nothing to it since opening 10 years ago. Air conditioning did not... More
