This hotel is a great fit for purpose option. The location is perfect, 5 minutes from Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, etc. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast (at the hotel across the street) is really complete and the terrace has an awesome view of the surroundings, perfect to start the day with energy. The room is just... More

I truly loved staying at the Hippodrome Hotel. The hotel is a short walking diatance to the main attractions: Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and the Topkapi Palace. It's surrounded by many cute little shops and restaurants, but is a quiet and cozy area. Each morning we have breakfast buffet on a rooftop terrace restaurant next door. However, what makes the...

We were in Istanbul in December just before Christmas time. It was a few rainy days and even snow but nevertheless it was very pleasant and enjoying trip. Hotel is located in five minutes by walk from Blue mosque and Hagia Sophia museum. Breakfast was on the roof terrace of the hotel nearby with fantastic view on the Marmara Sea... More

This hotel is in a terrific location and the staff are very nice. However, make sure you do not stay in a ground level room - dark and cramped (like have trouble getting around the bed cramped). Also - very hard to find English channels on TV...which does matter to someone who travels a lot for work and may want... More

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
