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

The hotel is well located, close to the main tourist attractions. The receptionists were very kind and helpful, and one of them (shame on me, do not remember the name) even treated with nice apple tea (for free!), and we had a nice chat - the atmosphere was friendly, and I felt welcome. I arrived quite tired, it was late... More

It won't be the most luxurious hotel you've ever stayed in, or the most quiet, but what it will be is good value for money, a short walk from some of Istanbul's main attractions like the blue Mosque and Topkapi palace, and in the lively Sultanahmet district with an excellent bars and restaurants. Its a comfortable no frills hotel that... More
