I was at this hotel before because my company paid for it and it was ok- nothing special. But I think there was a new renovation because the hotel is very nice now and if you're into a nostalgic place I would come here. It is so easy to go places from here my meeting would be 10 mins away... More

This hotel is recently renovated completely and the rooms are completely the same as the photos on their website. Breakfast is ordinary but comparing to the money we paid, we had pleasant stay. it's location is more than perfect, just in walking distance from T1 Aksaray station.

The hotel has been renewed recently with good and modern design. Clean room and bathroom but small room. Good staff, very cooperative. Good location, easy access to historical places. You can compare it with 3 stars hotel in Germany.

Walls paper thin, internet almost nonexistant unless you're place in one of the 4 rooms on the first floor, wallpaper peeling off the walls, had to open a window to cool the room, english spoken poorly by the staff, not prepared for credit cards, overpriced ($50 single). Near a metro that takes you to most of the sites.

Birbey Hotel is not at all luxurious or impressive, still it was clean, quiet and warm (when we visitd Istanbul the temperture was very low and it was snowing, but in our room we could sleep naked!) and the personnel was helpful and cheerful, so I believe it was worth the 35 euros per night that we payed for our...

The condition of this hotel is worthy only of being condemned. No work has been done on it since it was built and everything is mouldy, mildewing, falling apart and barely functional. The lavatory cistern works but the top fall off when you lift the button. Wall paper is peeling, carpet is moulting and is disintegrating as is everything in... More
