We found Hotellino on TripAdvisor and selected it for combination of good reviews and reasonable prices. We stayed in it November 25-28 (room 404 - double) and liked it so much that stayed there again after making a short side trip to Selcuk for the remainder of our stay in Turkey, December 1-4 (room 302 - triple). The first morning when we just arrived from the airport we were offered free breakfast while we were waiting for our room to be ready, even though one normally is not supposed to get breakfast on the first day. We loved breakfast food - both European choices (eggs, omelet, cereal, vegetables, fruits, juices, meats) and Turkish - great breads,pastry, yogurts, halva, honey in comb, Turkish tea and coffee. Apples were available at any time at the front desk. Every day we had 6 free bottles of water in the room. Location near Sirkesi train station is excellent - 5 min walk to Tram 1 stop, 10 min walk to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, but nestled in a quiet street, away from tourist crowds and pestering trinket sellers. Both rooms and bathrooms were spacious enough, comfortable, modern and clean. One slight downside was construction going on nearby with noise at night. Most of all we appreciated professionalism, hospitality and friendliness of the owners and the staff, they made us feel so welcome, almost pampered! Suzan, lady at the front desk, was especially helpful, always smiling and upbeat. We got a feeling that everyone in this hotel cares about their guests and wants them to be totally satisfied. We will certainly stay in this hotel next time we visit Istanbul.
