The hotel is in a good location walking distance to Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, restaurants and shopping etc. Good view from the balcony / breakfast area. The staff were helpful and friendly. However, we were a little disappointed. It didn't look quite like it did in their website. The rooms were really small and dark as was the hallway... More

The travel agency we used in Turkey set us up in this hotel and all I can say is Job Well Done. What it lacks in luster is made up with friendly enthusiasm and curtesy. We spent time is several much higher rated hotels in Turkey and this one was by far our favorite. The chef at the hotel was... More

Great location- literally a stone's throw away from the popular streets with restaurants and shops. Less than a 5 minute walk from Hagia Sofia and the palace. Room was a bit outdated and no secure double lock from the inside of the room. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast- average/good. Starts late at 8am but the staff allowed me to... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in may. Hotel was very reasonable price compared to others in Sultanahmet. The location is amazing. Right next to tokapi Palace and 5 mins walk to agya sofa and blue mosque. Rooms are small but we spent very little time in the room. The room was very clean and cleaned everyday. Bathroom was modern.... More

We booked 4 nights in this hotel in April. After we made the booking via Laterooms.com, we contacted the hotel to request a taxi pickup when we arrived. The hotel confirmed that a taxi would be sent. We arrived at Istanbul on Monday night at 11pm to find there was no taxi, we waited for over an hour and instead... More

We had booked two nights here in Istanbul, but after staying one night, we extended our stay. I would have expected to pay much more for this hotel, because the value is so much more. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the shower is hot, the temperature control is great. The breakfast is fantastic, and the service is beyond friendly.... More

This hotel is in a brilliant location in the old town...so close to all the major sights. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and personable, they were able to assist with all our needs/requests. The view from the terrace at breakfast is stunning and we looked forward to this each morning. The mosque sounds are all around the hotel, which... More

As a gay couple, we were looking for a safe, friendly hotel in the Old Town of Istanbul (Sultanahmet). Megara is NOT a gay hotel, but is welcoming and friendly toward everyone! This is not a party place (head to Beyoglu for that) - it is a small, quiet hotel, perfect for exploring the sights and sounds of the historical... More
