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

Star Hotel is right in the middle of Sultanahmet and a hop, skip and jump from the tram stop and some of Istanbul's major attractions - the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia and the underground cistern. Rooms are basic, but clean and comfortable with air conditioning. My friend actually stayed in two rooms, the first was rather on the small size,... More

We spend four nights in this Hotel and it's was a very great way to discover Istanbul. The hotel is very well located, in the heart of Sultan Hammet. The rooms are nice and the personnel are very kind and always at your service. For this price, we can't expect a best stay. I definatly recommend this hotel !
