I agree with other reviewers that if you book an economy room they are tiny, BUT if you are there to see the sites then you only use the room to either sleep in or to get changed in. The hotel overall was very good and the location for all attractions and restaurant is excellent. My wife and I spent... More

The good part: the location with the Ayasophia, Topkapi, Blue Mosque and the bazars within walking distance. My problem : room 612, which was tiny. This hotel claims to have four stars, well, room 612 doesn't even live up to two stars. I did look inside room 610 which was completely different : larger, different furniture as if in a... More

This is the second time that we have stayed at the Ipek Palas. Walking distance to all major attractions and restaurants. Friendly and Helpful staff. Great View of the Bosphorus from the Restaurant. Clean and nicely decorated rooms.

Cheap, walking distance to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, markets etc. Touristy area. Clean small room, warm in my winter visit, tv broken. I wouldn't take the family here, or recommend it for business, but fine for a solo exploring trip.

Definitely not a 4 stars hotel! The location is good, a short walk from the tram that takes you to the Taksim area, Mosques, museums and good restaurants. But for us, this was it. The breakfast is very diverse, we didn't like it very much but for other people it will definitely be very good. The room was very different... More

We had a nice farewell dinner at the terrace restaurant with a wonderful view to the Bosphorus! The location of the hotel is convenient. Delicious meals and wine, friendly athmosphere and relaxing music made our evening very special. Prices are reasonable.

I think this was my fifth trip to Istanbul, and each time I have stayed at this hotel. One or two members of staff have changed, but little else has: the rooms are cleaned to a high standard, the breakfasts are superb and the food plentyful, and there is still the offer of free tea and coffee for all guests...
