For us, a married couple, this hotel was perfect. The location meant we could walk to wherever we wanted to go. Interesting neighbourhood, but quite quiet - not even the prayer calls from the minarets were able to break the silence substantially. The personnel were very helpful whenever we needed something. We had a "deluxe" room, which basically meant a... More

We stayed at this hotel as a family of three with our 7 year old daughter and also with our friends, comprising of two other families. We would recommend this hotel as it is very centrally located to all the sights in Blue Mosque area and the service which we received from the staff and its owners, Gregg and Gaye... More

We had a really wonderful stay at this hotel as a family of four, children aged 7 and 9. The staff were so friendly, helpful and fun and went out of their way to look after us. We all looked forward to the breakfasts where there was a splendid array of fresh fruit, cereals, boiled eggs, cake, cheese, bread and... More

Lots of tips, information... More

You can't beat the location of this hotel - very easy to access the blue mosque etc or Grand Bazaar on foot, but we felt the shabby rooms and unexciting breakfast offerings did not really justify the price.

Thanks for our guest for reviewing the hotel. I would make the comment about breakfast. This is a 3 star hotel and not a 4 or 5 star hotel with big bain marie breakfasts! What we have is healthy and fresh. Here is what our breakfast consists of - fresh breads, fresh burek and french toast made on the premises,... More

We paid around 100 euros per night, tiny room on the second floor, WiFi signal was virtually unusable. The shower floor wasn't sloped towards the drain and water flooded the shower room. And the worst thing was: they had bed bugs!! Simply horrific experience. We got out first thing next morning. Never again.

It is always upsetting to get a review like this! But I am sorry I dont believe there are Bed Bugs - if we had bed bugs we would have had many many other complaints as the hotel has been full for a month and I am sure would have heard from other guests! To my knowledge there has never... More

Ayasofya hotel is most welcoming with helpful staff. The housekeeping is excellent and it's quieter yet ideally situated location superb. Their pricing is reasonable making their product good value without skimping on quality.

Lovely old local hotel, 5 mins walk from Blue Mosque. Friendly, helpful staff. Clean and our room was in fact a small suite. Nothing too much trouble. Very good value. Recommended to us and I am pleased to pass that on. Has a roof terrace and bar. Morning call to Mosque is audible……but then it is everywhere in Istanbul. Mehmed... More
