My mistake I didn't checked with tripadvisor first. I felt I was being cheated by the nice photos in the website. I choose this hotel because of its location near sultanahmet. The room was not maintained, no toilet pad, unsafe wiring, no minibar. Choice of food: bad.

It pains me to give this place One Star, as the accommodations are generally nice; the hotel is located in beautiful Sultanahmet (literally a stone's throw from the Blue Mosque), is cheaply priced, and has generally decent internet (they did turn the wifi off during night hours, which was irritating). However, several times a day our room would smell like... More

An absolute disgrace of a place that has hopefully closed by now. We stayed there, or rather attempted to stay there, in August 2012. We had arrived after a long drive from Veliko Tarnovo in Bulgaria, and just wanted a place to crash for the night. What we got was an absolute nightmare. Our room was filthy, the whole place... More

I stayed at Petrol Hotel in Sep '12 with family and small kids. The hotel seemed clean initially with friendly staff. Rooms were very small and unfurnished. The hotel is located right next to the SultanAhmet tram station. It is very convenient to get the tram from there but the ringing of tram bell was a constant disturbance. However the... More

Expect only average if u are used high standard demanding rooms and breakfast BUT: you can nowhere buy such a view at breakfast from the roof ! Opposite the blue mosque, the harbour down the hill, the cisterns around the corner! There is no better starting point to explore the sultans palace, the market, local food! Get local ferries, not...

I stayed here for two nights with my wife and two kids. Only good thing about this is price and location. The room was filthy. The bathroom likewise. The sheets were now changed and neither were the towels. They were just folded and placed on the bed. Wet. The breakfast was a parody and the overweight lady who worked in... More

We booked the Hotel online 2 weeks before the trip and when we arrived there (it was around 9 pm) the receptionist informed us that our room was given to someone else. When we ask if it would be possible to get us another room he told us that there was nothing he could do. Conclusion: we found ourselfs with... More

Don't know which hotel the photographs of the Petrol Palace were taken in but I was in 2 rooms, neither was anything like these. We were moved from one room to another, both were dirty. No light in bedroom, paper peeling off the walls, strong smell of deisal, unhelpful staff. Came away with bug bites. We asked for early morning... More

Located in the heart of Sultanahmet, this tiny hotel is convienient if you travel with a little budget, since you'll have all the turistic attractions of this historical area of Istanbul walking distance. You will have the metro just a step away from the hotel entrance. The fee includes a free breakfast which is pretty decent, thumbs up for the... More
