We travelled with a small 2.5 year old child, therefore booked a triple room as our child wants to have his own bed. It is a little bit expensive than I expected in Turkey, so with that price I have really high expectation in that hotel. Actually the hotel was not bad. It is located quite close to the blue... More

Receptionist Hamid was so hospitable on our arrival and would help you find what you need adjusting to your budget. We stayed there 4 nights and one night there was... More

The Katelya Hotel is a fantastic small hotel located in a wonderful part of Istanbul. Is you're looking for pools, tennis courts and the trappings of a five star hotel this isn't the place for you. However if you're looking for a quirky room, and the support of friendly and knowledgeable staff who are not only proud of their hotel... More

We spent our honeymoon in Istanbul in September 2013 and picked this hotel for accommodation. It's located very close to the main tourist attractions (5 min walking distance from the Blue Mosque, 10 min from Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern and the nearest tram station). Everything in the hotel, including the rooms, look shinny-new and kept that way by... More

Staff was very helpful, specially Hamdi. He took the time to go over the places to see, He took out the map and showed us where to go and what to do. Usually a receptionist just checks you in and that is it, but Hamdi went above and beyond. We will definitely come back to Katelya again. Room was small... More

Katelya is well located in the Sultanahmet area of Istanbul, with several restaurants, cafes and bars within a stone's throw. Some of the major tourist sites (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Cistern) are only about five minutes walk away, as is the tram line to get further away. The communal areas and rooms are clean and nicely decorated, though the pink... More

We chose this hotel from the excellent reviews and it delivered in every aspect… from the prompt managers email replies, the courtesy airport pick-up, the friendly and informative reception staff, the wonderful breakfast, excellent house-keeping and especially the beautifully decorated rooms (each room has its own unique decor) and common areas of hotel are also stylishly appointed… A special thank...
