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

this is a quirky nice hotel, extremely close to the hagia sophia. alas my i-phone got stolen in our room. only the hotel personal had access to the room, the management did not react at all, they simply said they would ask the cleaning personnel, that was it. if you like to stay at kybele, make sure you don't leave...

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

The location, the rooms, the public areas, the food and the excellent service from friendly staff made this a great base for our short stay in Istanbul. Highly recommended. I won't go into detail as it was specific to one of us but there was a lovely surprise one evening which we have never experienced anywhere else on our travels.

We loved the quirky decor of the Kybele and have already recommended it to lots of people. The staff made us feel very welcome and really put themselves out, making phone calls for us, ordering cabs etc. A real gem in such a convenient, touristy area. We plan to get back. Our room, at the back, was very quiet -... More

The Kybele Hotel was recommended to us by someone, and it turned out even better than we expected. The location in Sultanahmet is perfect, but more importantly the charm, warmth, and hospitality of the property and the staff made us feel like we were guests in a private home rather than in a hotel. The staff provided lots of useful... More

Stayed in this hotel back in April for 5 days, 4 nights. I was a solo traveler here and the first night placed in a double room and then moved to a single room the next day for the remainder of the trip. All of the staff was very friendly, spoke English, and always helped direct the cab drivers to... More

In September we visited Turkey for 3 weeks staying in Dalyan and taking an internal flight half way through our holidlay to Istanbul for 4 days. The return flights from Dalaman to Istanbul were very cheap and we paid approximately £60 each return. The flight was an hour and food was included. I came across the Kybele on line and... More
