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!

We really wanted to stay in the Old Town. This was so conveniently located for accessing the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Basilica Cistern, Arasta Bazaar. Our room was small but very clean and comfortable. We had a room in the basement and the only window looked out into sort of an alley. So on one hand it made for a... More

Myself and my husband spent 6 nights in the Mevlana Hotel over Xmas. The location of the hotel is excellent for sightseeing in the old city. The hotel is old, the decor is a bit tired and the rooms (especially the bathroom) are tiny but they are clean and the beds are nice and big. If you plan on arriving... More

The hotel itself is beautiful. It is located near all the main sights. My husband and I walked to all the sights such as the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Basilica Cistern and the Grand Bazaar. We also walked to take the 2 hour Bosphorous cruise. The hotel staff are very accommodating and knowledgeable (i.e. great places to eat in Istanbul).... More

no comment... We booked 3 months in advance (January) and the hotel took immediately all the money. When we arrived at the hotel (April) there were no rooms available due to overbooking and they tried to put us in an other terrible hotel. After a long discussion they manage to find us a really bad room with two single beds... More
