Me, my friend and her mother stayed at llkay Hotel for one night. The room was spacious and comfortable even for three people. Cozy lounge at the front desk for the guests to sit. The breakfast served was healthy and with different variety. Hotel staff are friendly and very helpful. Excellent job meric!

Basic hotel in a good location for the old section of Europe. Staff are very friendly. They have an actual honey comb at the breakfast table which really amused me =) And loads of travel agencies around to plan tours or the next leg of your journey

My husband and I have just returned from a week's stay at the Hotel Ilkay. Customer service was outstanding from the outset when I contacted the hotel to arrange a transfer from the airport and staff were helpful and charming throughout our stay. Meric deserves a special mention! We booked through Last minute.com and paid a little extra per night... More

I stayed there for a week during my honeymoon in Istanbul. I chose the hotel because of the excellent location (only 3 minutes from Gulhane Tramstop) and also the reviews on Tripadvsior and also the excellent price. The room was small but very clean and was prepared daily. The breakfast was good with multiple choices. The air-conditioning in the rooms... More

close to tram stop for transport to Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque...further from grand bazaar. Room was small but adequate...some street noise as our room fronted on a busy one. Coffee/tea in room, breakfast bar in morning with adequate food choices. Not a bad value for the price.

There is a pub connected to the hotel and my room was very near the noise. The room was spacious and clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly. There... More
