This is a small hotel but very friendly. The room was adequate with 'fridge, plug sockets in the right places, near mirrors! Hair dryer in bathroom and complimentary shower slippers - a nice little touch. The breakfasts were continental with hot food as well as cakes, breads and preserves. Wonderful coffee also. We were tired on arrival and ordered a... More

The hotel first of all had a very good location, close to Agia Sofia and Blue Mosque, Gulhane Park even going in the bazaars was very easy going on foot. On the other hand tram station Gulhane was a few steps away from the hotel. When we arrived there was a small renovation but nothing to disturb us. We were... More

First visits are always a lottery, however, we were pleased with our choice. The very helpful staff went out of their way to oblige, and our impressions of Istanbul surprised, even though we consider ourselves seasoned travellers. We were happy to compensate a smaller room for our top priorities C.C.C. Denis G

This hotel was basic, but with everything you need. Great location with only a few minutes walk to the Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sofia, The Blue Mosque and several of the great attractions in the Old City of Istanbul. Very friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast and comfortable and clean room. Cooperating hotels next door had facilities like spa and fitness... More

Location is the only thing that makes this hotel worth staying in. The staff is ignoring you, the receptionist speaks poor english, breakfest is ok but boring, and the rooms are soooo small that there is no place to pur your bags, you have to jump over them to go to the bathroom. Advice: stay away from rooms that end... More

We've stayed in Olimpiyat in late April for the second time. The hotel is outstanding. Much better than many 4-stars I know. Very quiet, with nice and friendly staff, great breakfast. Hotel is located in 5 minutes walk to the major sightseeing places. 30 seconds walk to the tram station Gulhane. I would advice to visit the hotel for all... More

The location is great. Very close to historical sites. Lots of restaurants, shops and small kebab places in this area. Perfect location for those who came to see the historical part of Istanbul. Our room was clean, sunny and big (6th floor), however some of the rooms might be dusty and small. At the beginning we got small and very... More
