This oasis of calm in the hurly-burly of Istanbul is the perfect choice for those who relish the peace and quiet of a traditional Istanbul quarter with the additional plus of having not only the world-renowned Chora Church next door but also one of the city's most renowned restaurants, the Asitane, within its walls. This hotel is staffed by the... More

I stayed in two hotels on my recent trip to Istanbul. One was a Western style hotel in the old city and one was the Kariye Oteli near the Chora church. I thought Karyie was great, especially for the money. Staff was friendly and went out of its way to be helpful. One of the receptionists even gave us a... More

I stayed in this hotel several times, one of which was five days. The breakfast is the first thing to be mentioned, always rich and fresh, with well done Turkish tea. Not less from what is to be expected from the well known restaurant of the hotel (Though the prices of the other dishes in the restaurant is expensive compared... More

The hotel and the room was attractive with tranditional furnishings and comfortable bed and we have an outlook onto the museum next door and view on Istanbul. It is right next door to the beautiful Kariye Museum which is a MUST SEE when in Istanbul, seeing this Museum was one of the highlight of our trip. The bathroom was adequate... More

the hotel is situated right next to Chora Museum, in the Fatih district. this is a very nice neighborhood, with nice views over the Golden Horn. it's an old wooden building, as most of the buildings in this area, very shiny, especially the part overlooking the Golden Horn. the rooms needs to be renovated, but keeping the old style which...

Situated near to the tram station, this traditional hotel is very nice indeed. Personel is friendly and there is a gourmet restaurant (Asitane) with beautiful, tasty, but small plates. Just across the street is a kebab-restaurant with delicious traditional food.

This hotel is value for money! we booked a room through the booking.com and it was twice cheaper than in the hotel. Though the rooms are not perfect, it`s clean, the staff is very friendly and always ready to help. And the location of the hotel is perfect: it`s in the old part of Istanbul, which is very beautiful and... More
