After a bad experience previously in my trip, I was nervous about going to this hotel as it was recommended by a travel agent that had so far failed to deliver. Once I got there I felt a little better and the next 7 days wasn't too bad. The whole hotel was kept quite clean and tidy but it is... More

Staff of the hotel are very rude and not a single English word!!! They were cheats waiting to punce on you. First they insisted on keeping our passports and after much protest I got it back. The Hotel is a dungeon. The table cloths were covered in Emirates Airlines Blankets. This should give you an idea of what sort of... More

There are many bars, restaurants and shops in the area, so it is very noisy, but this is typial for any hotel in Laleli neighbourhood. What... More

What you pay is what you get. Very cheap , old , crowdy , noisy hotel ! Right in the Aksaray zone, poor neighbourhood. Maximum 2 star hotel. The only plus was the breakfast, staff and price. Avoid this hotel !

HOTEL ART IS NOT FOR FAMILY OR OLD MANS. At reception like story,has everywhere big packages. Good location, Aksaray,tram station is 5 min walk. Many shops,... More

Location is good, so you can walk till Grand Bazar(10-15mins), Hagia Sophia and Blue mosque(20-30mins), or go there by tram which station is close to hotel. Many small shops around with boring sellers. Breakfast was okay, room clean, but bit dark as window was too small. Staff is friendly but their english is too bad. Wifi worked perfectly at lobby...

Stayed at Art Hotel for 2 nights.It's nothing special, but still the room was clean and comfortable.The best thing is that it has great location.Aksaray tram station is within 5min. walk. The area is surrounded with shops and typical Turkish restaurants, also there's McDonald's nearby.I recommend visiting the Grand Bazaar which is 15min. walk from the hotel, or if you're... More
