“The friendliest people ever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Is it the best hotel I stayed? Probably not, does it matter? Not really because the people working in this hotel are the friendliest I have ever come across in years and years of travelling. The value is very good, it is a very central hotel, with a tram station right in front of it. The food and the service are excellent, the rooms and the corridors can do with some improvements but if you are not that picky its fine. I still amazed by how nice the people working here are. If you come to Istanbul for a weekend it's a perfect place and location to stay.

I enjoyed staying at the Constantine hotel. What I was most impressed with was the great staff, Adem in particular! He was extremely helpful and patient. I definitely recommend this hotel. The location is great too!

The hotel is very cozy and has a friendly staff. The location is excellent!! Right in front of the Gulhane tram-station and within 5 min walking distance to Sultanahmet. Highly recommend it!! There are many shops and restaurants around the hotel.

We have stayed for 2 night at Constantine hotel. We were very pleased by the welcome note from reception and manager, who excellently advised us on safe and efficient stay in Istanbul. I personally was very glad to hear that we were given additional 10% discount for Han restaurant. Excellent location for both airport and city sightseeing!

First, i reached the hotel easily cause the tram stop, is in front of its entrance (gulhane stop). Perfect location near ayiasofia, blue mosque, sultanahmet and beyioglou(peran). Many restaurants,shops, tourist offices near to it. The new team of the hotel gave its best so that me and my wife feel comfortable.Helpfull,friendly, all speaking english,some of them and a little greek!! Large room, everyday cleaning, changing towels and sheets. Very rich breakfast good wifi. Try the pancakes and the kebabs in the restaurant next door (it belongs to the hotel), watch the old lady preparing and baking the pancakes and the boy the kebabs. i'll certainly prefer the hotel(and the restaurant) in my next visit in instanbul.

Old building in old Istanbul, pretty clean (with a little to wish for in the bathroom – it deserves an upgrade!). Friendly staff - excellent English - and very very helpful.
Parking is not available, but you can find nearby if you ask the staff.
Decent breakfast, but nothing special. The hotel is part of a local network of hotels and restaurants – ask for the 10% discount card for some of the nearby restaurants (good Turkish traditional food).
The street (with it's tram) is right in front of some of the windows, so ask for a back room if you are sensible to noise (not too noisy for us). Tram station for both directions is right in front – very easy to reach some other interesting parts of Istanbul.
Sofia, the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace are within walking distance, as are shopping streets (Istanbul has almost only shopping streets :). Plenty of restaurants and just a couple of minutes by tram to Grand Bazar or to the Galata Bridge and Bosphorus trip boats (you can also walk there). You have to change public lines to go to Taksim square.
As a conclusion: not perfect, but taking into account the location and price, it's definitely not a bad choice.
