While the Mevlana hotel is perfectly located, has very friendly staff and a lovely view over the Bospurus from its breakfast room, the rooms leave a lot to be desired. I had a small room on the ground floor, which was dark and gloomy as its only window faced a dark alleyway. It seemed clean but the room and the... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Mevlana hotel. The location was so convenient to the major sights and restaurants. Staff, were all friendly and helpful and happy to share their local knowledge. Breakfasts were adequate and it was a bonus having the breakfast overlooking the city.Bedrooms and bathrooms are small, but lovely and clean and serviced daily.

Mevlana Hotel is perfectly located in the Old City Area, just 2 minutes away from Ayasofya and Blue Mosque, by walk. The Topkapı Palace can be reached in 5 minutes also by walk. The hotel has the unique Turkish style and seems a little too old, but cozy and clean. The service quality is good, staff very polite and helpful.... More

We stayed for 5 nights in early October. Please do not take serious their most important key promotional sentence which is: "Don’t worry, we haven’t taken any payment as you’ll pay the hotel directly in their local currency, along with any additional charges and fees incurred during your stay." And elsewhere on the booking confirmation page that says: "Your booking... More

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...

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.
