Booked this in July 2013 (not April 2014 which was the only option below), by email and received confirmation. On checking in I was told I had no reservation and was taken to another basic hotel down the road (not a good start). I was then offered a double room in the initial hotel the next day. However, on checking... More

The hotel is clean and the staff is nice. Breakfast is at the Best Western across the street. Tea and sweets are available in the lobby 24/7. The hotel is in easy walking distance of the main historical sites. The staff is helpful with questions about the main tourist things but a bit limited beyond that.

We had a 4 night break in Istanbul in March, staying at the Hippodrome. A really value for money 3* hotel. The standard room was relatively spacious, very clean and comfy. We didn't need the aircon and were able to leave the window open at night. The en-suite was compact, modern with loads of hot water and hairdryer. My main... More

The room was tidy and neat. The staffs were very friendly and very pleasant & even gave advice on destinations, tours and sightseeing in istanbul. And my special thanks to Mr. Ilker & Mr. Samad for all the assistance. The hotel itself is in the heart of major sightseeing and attractions like topkapi, blue mosque, Hagia Sophia, museums, obelisks, etc... More

As mentioned by others, it is in the heart of everything you want to see. We didn't mind the prayers nor did we mind the traffic outside (it was off season so that helped a bit).The room was clean, staff was friendly and I really enjoyed being able to walk everywhere!

Hotel is clean, sleep quality too, location service but no air conditioning in bathroom :D Also, if you want to bring your friend in hotel, reception won't let him up and will tell you to come and speak to him in lobby!
