I stayed here as a solo traveller. The staff were amazingly helpful from the front desk to the bar. It was walking distance to most things and the guys showed me where to go on the map and helped me book a tour. I would stay here again. It was noisy but I imagine any hotel in this area would...

Disappointed to find this hotel noisy because of the location over lively bars, etc. into the wee hours. Also didn't feel the rooms, breakfast, etc. were up to the same standards we had found after 3 weeks of travel thru various parts of Turkey staying in similar priced or cheaper hotels.

We stayed here 3 nights in July 2014. The hotel and rooms were very clean, although the toilet in our room seemed to be slowly leaking water from somewhere. You should be aware that due to the historic nature of the building this hotel does not have an elevator, which I think is the norm for smaller hotels in this... More

What a wonderful place. My wife and I recently enjoyed an idyllic three-night stay at Star. The rooms were clean, well outfitted, and charming. The hotel is ideally located in Sultanahmet within a short walking distance of Istanbul's major (and quite majestic!) sites. More than anything else, we appreciated the service. The service staff and hotel owner were wonderfully friendly... More

Everything was excellent (great location, great staff, clean room and shower...) ...but if noise keeps you awake at night, this might not be the hotel for you. Or you might just want to bring earplugs. Many rooms face a touristic road (Akbiyik cad.) crowded with bars and restaurants; expect to hear people talking and loud music until around 1am (especially... More
