Please please do not be fooled by the pictures of this hotel. The reality is very far fetched. Lousy room service, we had to beg for clean towels, which came 3 days later and was actually foot towel. Reception and staff are thugs, was rude and cold. Once you checked in that's it, you cannot cancel until end of your... More

We booked this hotel through booking.com and believed that the photos and description would be an honest representation of the place (naiive, moi?)! The place is old, dirty and the male staff are cold, rude and hostile. Our room had a small double bed that must have been made from concrete and no sheets! The bathroom only had hot water... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night as i had a 24 hour transit in Turkey. Upon arriving i asked where i could get something to eat and was told to go sleep and breakfast will be served in the morning. The single bedroom was tidy but not what i was expecting looking at the photos. The breakfast in the... More

The receptionist is more interested in flirting with any emale tourist, or chatting with his friends, than servicing. Nethertheless, this is one of the cheapest hotels in the very old city, near the small Hagia Sophia. You're 10 minutes walking from the blue mosquee and Hagia Sophia, also not far from the suburban train stations. The douche cabinet / toilet... More

A friend and I planned a last minute trip to Istanbul, however most of the good hotels were booked. We choose this hotel through an agency at the airport. They showed us pictures (which we later found out were obviously photoshopped) and assured us that the hotel was very nice, clean and comfortable. To our horror when we got there,... More

We were forced to stay at this hotel when the hotel we initially booked with gave our reservations away! As it was a bank holiday weekend this was the only hotel available for three people in the old city. What can I say! Firstly, this is not a hotel, it's a hostel and thats being nice. During our three days... More

We intended to stay in Istanbul for two days. Booked a random hotel which was clean and neat on the pictures. And seemed like a good value for money. But I did not know what is awaiting us!!! I've been to Istanbul before and know how great this city can be. But as soon as we arrived to Rose Hotel... More

After reading some reviews I was quite a little bit scared. But I arrived there and I found a hotel in the middle of a rebranding process, with a new manager, with friendly and supportive staff. The hotel was clean and the breakfast is ok. In the near future they will fix the roof terrace, so the next tourists will... More
