I stayed at this hotel Sunday, March 9 - Wednesday, March 12 in a quad room. Our room had two twin beds and one queen bed. It was a lot of furniture in one room (there was a cute little seating area with two chairs and a table) but it worked for us. The bathroom was a little cramped but... More

We spent a great long weekend in Istanbul without any regrets regarding our choice to stay at Historia Hotel. We found everything as advertised – even the airport pick-up service was easy despite our delayed arrival. The hotel is quite, clean, with extremely friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast is included and offers a variety of choices, including fresh omelets... More

Loved this small hotel, staff very friendly helping with places to eat (and arranging for pickup and return). Very clean ,all the facilities you need including coffee making often not provided...

Excellent hotel with friendly and helpful staff in a great position in Istanbul. Rooms are a little small but think this is typical for Istanbul. We upgraded to sea view with balcony and it was worth the extra 20 euros per night. For shopping take the ferry to Kadikoy (55 pence each way) for bags and shoes (and kebabs) Less... More

The hotel staff was always there to help. They help us with all the transportation during our stay in Istanbul. The hotel is very comfortable. However rooms are very... More

It would be better if I didn't stay in another great hotel in the area (which has very good value) Things are pretty neat here but the walls are kind of thin and I can hear my neighbors after midnight. On the first day it smells like cigarettes in my room (I'm a non-smoker) which upsets me a little bit.... More

The Historia Hotel is all I need when exploring a city abroad. Friendly, helpful staff - a clean, hot shower - a comfortable bed - all very close to the sites I want to see! I am delighted to have discovered this little gem, and encourage others to do so.

The lovely, tiny Historia Hotel has become my home away from home in Istanbul. Tucked away at the end of a quiet street just down the hill from the Blue Mosque and the Arasta Bazaar, the Historia offers sea view rooms with small balconies as well as rooms suitable for more than two people. I've stayed there four or five... More
