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 However, the wifi is not too great and the rooms themselves are a bit dirty and outdated....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.

We have had a fantastic time whist staying at the Ilkay. The location is brilliant, it's close to the Bosphorus & Gulhane tram stop so you can make your way easily round the city either on foot or on public transport - many major sights are within 500 yards. in the vicinity, there are many bars & restaurants as well...

5 /5 for this well located inexpensive hotel. We stayed one night in this budget hotel from the Sirkeci Group and found it excellent value. They can be proud of their customer service and hospitality. Prior emails had been responded to quickly, graciously and helpfully. As we were late night arrivals in a new city we found the service and... More
