I stayed here with my brother in January 2014 for 5 nights. Really lovely hotel. It was very cosy and warm in the flat. When we got to Istanbul it was 2degrees so getting into the flat and seeing the heating system they had was a relief. Very comfy beds and the cleaning completed on a daily basis was to... More

We stayed with our two children, ages six and nine, for three nights at Hippodrome Hotel in March 2014. The room was clean and pleasant and everything was in good order. Our room faced the street, so there was some noise, but it was fun for our kids to watch people strolling by. If you prefer a quieter room you... More

We have booked two rooms on this hotel. Booking and reception was as expected. After two days we returned back to the hotel, and it was without electricity. We asked for a deadline for the return of power, and my wife was asked to go and find information at the team working on the problem. I went to the reception... More

The staff were very nice, the hotel was clean & the bedroom was a good size. Breakfast was across the road &... More

This was a city break holiday of 5 days organised by BA.com. This was a real find of a hotel, situated so close to most of the main city tourist attractions, no longer than 10-15 minutes walking. The manager Arzu Cetinkaya and all her hotel staff, were friendly, polite, efficient helpful and most of all, organised, nothing was too much... More

We stayed in Hippodrome Hotel in January 2014. We were impressed by kindness and politeness of the hotel staff. The room was very cosy, well-cleaned and warm. Clean towels were put every day. The breakfast was excellent: a great variety of cheese and sausage, eggs, vegetables, jams and so on. Views from the roof terrace of the restaurant were fantastic!... More

The room was good. The staff were helpful to explain things. Highly recommended hotel for value for money. Clean towels and bed spreads. The only con that I will say is the size of the room. But when you think about value for money, the size is balanceable.
