I stayed for one night with my BF and my only complain would be the two single beds joined to make one, isn't the most comfortable thing. Location wise it is amazing, just four minutes from Haia Sophia and Sultanhamet Mosques and many other must see places. Clean room and just big enough for what we needed.Front Desk staff was... More

I was surprised when we first arrived because the photo that is (or was) on their Hotels.com website is NOT a photo of the hotel. It is of the rug store that is also owned by the same company. I thought I was booking at a bigger place based on that alone. That said, it still did the job. The... More

Besides being a very comfortable and attractive small hotel, it is ideally located, close to all the historic cites of Istanbul and to the staggeringly tempting grand market. The staff was extremely agreeable and welcoming and the breakfast, generous and varied. If you stay there once, I think you would be likely to return.

Tried five different rooms since we had two rooms booked and had issues with all rooms. One room was the wrong type and dark and small, the other had a non-working A/C and smelled really bad. Sound insulation between rooms is terrible, you can hear almost everything. Rooms are terribly small and dark except for x02, x03, and x04 Mattresses... More

If you like to be close to the action, but not in the middle of it, this one is for you. Located down behind the Blue Mosque, Mevlana is just up the street from a huge range of wonderful restaurants and a very short walk from all the attractions the old city has to offer. It is a great location.... More

We stayed one night at the Mevlana in Sultanahmet. Although we had been promised a view room, we were given the basement room. There was one window, opening to a dirty concrete cavity. The room was tiny and stuffy. The toilet did not flush so you had to manual take off the cistern lid to depress. We were meant to... More

Thanks to a Trip Advisor review we chose this hotel which is in the heart of the sight seeing area. The hotel was very clean and comfortable, with a great breakfast overlooking the entrance to the Bosporous. It is an easy walk from the metro so is an easy connect to the airport. Great value for a great location. However,... More

Great Hotel, good location, The rooms are small but cleaned daily. Nice Staff in the clean sunny Breakfast Terrace. GREAT VIEWS. Food just OK gets boring..... My only complaint is the Front Desk Staff made repeated clerical mistakes. We "upgraded" our room upon check in, the original was just too small with no sunny window. Our plans changed and we...
