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...

The only down side has nothing to do with the room or hotel itself. The thing is, at arrival, after a long night of travelling, the hotel clerk offered a room in another hotel ("sister hotel was the term") for the first night because the Hotel was full, and he was going to upgrade the room from economy (room at...

I have stayed there two years ago and was satisfied so when I had a layover in Istanbul I contacted them again via email. Booking was easy they authorized against my credit card. Transport from and to the airport was not complimentary, but very efficient. It is very conveniently located right on the edge of Sultanahmed within walking distance of... More

Does this hotel pay TripAdvisor to remove negative reviews? This is the second time I am wrtiting this review because my first review never appeared on the website. Anyway, the hotel was so bad that I am prepared to write a second review. Once again: stayed in Mevlana with a company of friends in February 2014 for two nights. The... More

My 5th week-long stay in the Sultanahnet (Old City). Overall best of the five: location, room, bath, breakfast. Best features: room/maid service and breakfast/rooftop. Need improvement: room tea service and lobby. (Avoid 01 and 05 rooms - no windows.) Mine was 302 and had 2 street view windows - lovely!
