This was located within short walking distance of the main historic sites of interest. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. However, you would hear other guests talking in the corridor at night. It wasn't ever very late at night so it didn't actually disturb my sleep. The breakfast was nice.

The rooms are kept clean, bottled drinking water is provided, beds were comfortable. The hotel is well located and near all the top attractions in Istanbul. The bus station,... More

I chose the Hotel Ilkey based on it's location, it is situated on the T1 tram line equal distance from 2 stops, Gulhane and Sirkeci, the area abounds in good restaurants. For most major sights you do not need the tram, Topkapi, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Sultanhumit, Aqua reservoir, Spice market and all the ferries at Sirkesi and Eminonu are... More

Great location with all you need in the hotel to spend a wonderful journey.... The staff is very helpful and attentive to all customers' needs.... The fact it's very closed to all the important historical monuments helped me a lot... I could visit all of them in one day. They're very caring and warmly welcoming people in this hotel... The...

Prime location indeed with all attractions within waking distance and hotel itself is w easy to find. However there are plethora of hotels in this district that made these less of competitive advantage. Being an old building, bathroom door was faulty and every time one tried to get out could not get out by oneself- had to be rescued by... More

You can ask Them for anything and they Will Help without no hesitation. The rooms are so clean and the maids are cleaning it everyday. The breakfast has so many variations, and you... More
