We were booked for one single room and one double room beginning of July. When we arrived the clerk informed us that our room had been given to someone else as we were late. It was only 5 pm when we checked in , arriving from Cyprus. It was very disappointing but we were given rooms and which were very... More

This hotel has two big points: location and view. Location is basically perfect, a 5 minutes walk to Hagia Sophia, and the view is simply amazing: from the terrace you can have a view of Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque, and If you are lucky you'll have the same view from room aswell. Room was clean and big enough, and... More

The Hali is a modest hotel with a rich view of the Ayia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. Simply stunning views from the breakfast terrace and front rooms on the third and fourth floors. You could spend your vacation in Istanbul happily examining the magical landscape of this most beautiful city from their terrace sipping an Efes Pilsen. The service... More

We stayed at the hotel for 4 days in June 2012. We were given the most awful rooms in the hotel on the second floor with no windows!!! When we asked for other rooms, we were given a room with the window but looking on the wall. Nice view!!! May be it was a bad luck for us, or may... More

We've stayed in the Hali many times and tend to use it because of its excellent location and reasonable rates. Over the years the view of the Blue Mosque from the top terrace has gradually been obscured by the hotels opposite and now only the dome and tops of its minarets are visible despite the impression given on the hotel's...

Hali Hotels most exiting feature is definitely the exellent view from the roof balcony, where you can eat a fresh and tasty breakfast while overlooking the Bosporus, Ayasofya and the Blue Mosque. Watching the sunset over the roofs of this vivid old town having a glass of wine is worth a fortune. Though it is not at all a luxury... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times in the last 25 years. I've always found it clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. It is not a luxury hotel by any standard, but the location is truly fantastic. Ask for a room facing the Blue Mosque. If you are traveling on a budget and want a safe place... More

Right in old town, view of both the famous mosques, I was there in cold weather so no outdoor terrace... However breakfast good, staff pretty helpful, just walk outside and feel the ambience... Ignore carpet sellers, you will have a thousand friends in Istanbul. I would go again, place is old, clean however, very old town, but that's just what... More
