We stayed seven nights in this terrific hotel. Firstly it is extremely well situated in the old city which meant we could walk to so many places. The staff were all very friendly and most helpful, including taking my husband's shoes to be repaired and giving us a wake up call (without our asking) on our last morning when we... More

We booked this hotel largely on the positive recommendations on Trip Advisor. The hotel is charming and well located. The rooms are VERY small. The bathrooms need updating (shower was old and couldn't be adjusted, very slow draining tub). The service may be ok for Istanbul (I don't have enough other data points) but it wasn't great. It felt like... More

We stayed here initially for two nights but we liked it so much, we decided on one more. The staff are all very helpful and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. It is located right near to the tram (far enough not to hear it Incase that puts anyone off) and some of the main attractions, so easy to... More

The Kybele is a very charming hotel with an even more charming staff. I stayed at the Kybele for the first time this May/June and was welcomed with open arms. Just the first night I felt like family. The rooms are small but cute and the entire hotel is covered in colorful lamps. The staff does their best to communicate... More

The Kybele has quaint and colourful old world charm and is perfectly placed to visit the main attractions of Istanbul by foot. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The rooms are smallish but comfortable. The food is good too. Perfect possie!

Great atmosphere in this quirky, friendly hotel. Room very clean. Excellent location. We thought the staff were helpful and friendly when we left, but changed that view to amazingly kind and considerate when we were boarding our plane home!!! At the gate BA staff asked if we had lost any keys. Puzzled, I checked my handbag and couldn't find my... More

Stayed here for 4 nights with my friend-hotel was as described-small boutique, quirky antique style decor. The overall atmosphere was very friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely-especially loved all the antique Turkish lights hanging from all ceilings. Breakfast was very good with large variety of cold and hot foods. We also ate twice in the evening here and food... More

Upon arrival in Istanbul, we discovered the apartment we'd rented had chosen to omit a few important details that meant we needed another place to stay on the spur of the moment. We rang the Kybele, which not only found two rooms for us, but gave us a better-than-listed price and then sent a taxi to pick us up. The... More
