We only had 2 nights with one full day in Istanbul so this hotel served as the perfect location to cover as much ground as possible. The hotel room was small but cozy for 3 adult women, 3 single beds. The bathroom was very modern, although small. Reception was extremely helpful and available 24/7. We booked a last minute half...

The hotel was ok. It had a really good location near the blue mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi palace and Grand bazaar. I didn't really like the breakfast. The first few day's there wasn't any orange juice and the tea was disgusting. The staff was really friendly. The room were nice and clean, but when you wanted to go to the... More

We were booked into this hotel by our tour company and on on reading some reviews we were a little apprehensive. We were very pleasantly surprised. The Sunlight Hotel is located in a relatively quiet street within easy walking distance of Sultanahmet Square. Whilst the rooms are small they were OK and they had a fridge. The bathroom was modern... More

This is Not a hotel, it is a motel with the worst staff ever. The breakfast was very basic consisting of plain yoghurt, olives, hard boiled eggs, cheese, bread and jam, tea (awful) and coffee. There was no restaurant and the bedroom was very noisy as not insulated and guests slammed doors at all hours. In addition there was damp... More

The hotel is nice and simple. The staff is friendly and willing to help. The breakfast is simple, but good. The room has a nice size, not too big and not too small. The shower is nice, but not always hot. The location is great, close to the blue mosque and the grand bazaar, walking distance. Also the tram is... More

The second day we would like to change the room because there are little blood on the ground, very grosse! Then the reception was so rude and nearly yelling to us. My wife was so frightened. Anyway don't come here, it... More
