I have reserved the price of $356,40 USD thru hotels.com. They charged me 356 Euro which brings it to $493 USD. It stated the price was guaranteed. The receptionist charged me 8% credit card fee on top of all that because I used credit card. I told them that I already pre paid the reservation and that it cannot be... More

I had a long weekend in Istanbul on August and stayed, with other two friends, in this nice hotel. The location is fantastic, just 5 minutes walk from Topkapi and other amazing places. Rooms are almost big and clean and the personnel is always kind and polite. They serve the breakfast on the roof garden with a wonderful view of... More

The hotel is conveniently situated for exploring the historical sites, the buffet breakfast is adequate, staff are friendly, manager comes across as grumpy although this could be because of the language barrier! the rooms are filthy, sheets are clean and beds comfortable but bathrooms and rooms are in need of a very good clean

The hotel manager is such a rude and arrogant guy. The rooms are average. I would not recommend this place to anyone. The other dtaff is alright but not very helpful either. The breakfast is nothing extraordinary.

When we arrived to hotel, hotel manager informed us that he has canceled our reservation because of some issue with my credit card and that he can still give us these two... More

I like a good bargain, and The Abella is an excellent deal. The goods: Great price. Great location, just a 5 minute easy walk to the Blue Mosque, Haiga Sophia, palace, 15 min to the Grand Bazaar. The Staff was very nice and very helpful. The breakfast was included and was pretty standard (instant coffee, bread, boiled eggs, various spreads).... More

The people, food and management everywhere we went in Istanbul were fabulous, BUT NOT HERE. These people do not know how to run a hospitality business. Fortunately, we only stopped here for the fabulous rooftop view for lunch. We did not stay here! But we sat atop the rooftop waiting for our food FOREVER. When I went downstairs to use... More
