No hotel in sirkeci has a great view out of there windows. considering rating this hotel without regarding the fact is very...unfitting. Nice rooms, nice bathrooms. Though, you're gonna want to use your own shampoo.

We booked at Hotel Ilkay from 25 Dec - 02 Jan, 2015. We arrived at the hotel at 9:30am, 4hours earlier than scheduled check-in. The manager has offered us breakfast and allowed us to rest in our room. I highly recommend Hotel Ilkay it is nearby tourist spot and sorrounded by restaurants.

Stayed here for a total of nine nights in April/May 2014. Staff were excellent and rooms were very comfortable. Very well located close to main Istanbul attractions and surrounded by restaurants. Hotel arranged airport transfers were great too.

Loved every aspect about this hotel. Central location, close to the tram, and a walking distance from Eminonu, where there is a bus station to all places where tram does not reach and ferry boats to other further locations. We had a triple room and it was ok for all 3 of us. The room was clean and it was... More

If you are looking to just see all the sites from morning till night, stay here. The breakfast is good and the hotel is on the tramline. It is almost exactly between the New Mosque in Eminonu and all the sites near Sultanahmet. However, the wifi is not too great and the rooms themselves are a bit dirty and outdated.... More

Location, Service, cleanliness, friendly staff, delicious & nutritious food - Ilkay has them all. Situated at walkable distance from all the top sights in the historical area. Easily accessible to the Ferry service as well.
