Wonderfully located and easy to find, only a short walking distance from The Blue Mosque. Friendly staff, good breakfast selection and great views from room 501. I highly recommend for your stay in Istanbul.

Yes, Asmali is somewhat dated and in need of renovations. Yes, there are no elevators and front stairs are somewhat challenging to navigate (rear stairwell is easier). Rooms are very clean, beds are comfortable, sheets are high quality cotton and very soft, heating works great, staff are friendly, welcoming and helpful, breakfast is included, big and varied. I highly recommend... More

I don't understand what people expected for this price?! Hotel is great! Location is perfect,staff is friendly,breakfast is tasty with turkish traditional food, very nice room,small and cosy. It's excellent for this price,more than I expected. One thing was not really good,when guy from reception said that transfer to the airport cost 6 euro not 5.

The hotel is very centrally located in the Sultanahmet district within walking distance from the Grand Bazaar, Hagia Sophia, Topcapi, tram. Each of these is about a 15 minutes walk away. There are other better situated hotels in the area but much more expensive. We only had 4 days so we only needed a comfortable bed and a clean bathroom.... More

very well located - 5 minutes from the Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque, 15 minutes from the grand bazaar. But this is not a hotel! This is more of a B&B something you can see near Victoria station in London! They gave me a room 402, - oh, say no when they want to give you this room, I tell... More

TL;DR: We moved to a different hotel it was that bad. Upon arrival, they didn't have a room for us, so they put us up in a different hotel for a night. The next day we moved to this hotel, but we weren't impressed. It's dirty with worn carpets on the stairs. There's no lift and no-one offered to help... More

Dark, dismal, dirty, and the smell of drains isn't entirely due to external reasons. A single staircase, on the side I stayed in for one night before changing to somewhere else, seems to offer great potential for inability to escape in the event of fire. Great location but not one other thing going for this totally out of date dump.

i enjoyed every bit of it! I liked the rooms, they were quite big, more than i expected(it's a very small hotel). great view from the rooftop, extremely nice. the staff were very nice and helpful. great location. the bad thing is that they don't have an elevator. it is a small hotel, but it's hard to carry your luggage.

From the moment the smell of BO hits you in 'reception' knew this was not going to be a great stay. Room like a cell. Breakfast ok ish but having stayed at similarly priced hotels in the city this was by far the worst. Walls very thin, uncomfortable beds, no in room coffee/tea making facilities. Questionable cleanliness. AVOID
