No doubt that Hypnos hotel has build a good reputation during the 2,5 years of their existence and for a good reason. Small but tastefully decorated rooms, great service, attention to details and located on the footsteps of all the sights, what more would one want from a hotel.
I got the French room on the second floor, and even though it was only one floor from the street, the noise was not a problem.
Breakfast is a la carte, decent. Try the eggs with Turkish sausage, very nicely done. Down side, if you order Fresh orange juice, it's not fresh at all.
Also a minor inconvenience but you could hear the shower of the room next door.
Highly recommend trying Cafe Mese if you stay in Hypnos, you won't regret it, only 5 min walk away.

Room Tip: I believe that all rooms are good, although a bit on the small side

My friend and I found this place whilst looking for a more ‘boutique’ hotel experience in Istanbul.
We are delighted that we found Hypnos and had a great 6 night stay there.
The decor is cute, our room was little small but not cramped and perfectly comfortable, the size you'd expect right in the middle of a city. The location is fantastic!
What really stands out about this place is the staff; so nice, so helpful, very genuine and they all speak great English... plus their added charm was their good sense of humor!
I plan to go back to Istanbul and will not even bother trying to find another place to stay.
Hypnos is non pretentious, chilled and offers great comfort and service as well as good value for money.
The only one thing I was concerned about was the bathroom door....;-)!! BUT this is a small detail that would never put me off recommending the hotel or returning!
A really great little find which I can highly recommend!

Location is more than perfect as well as the staff.
We stayed there in family but I'd come back with my couple as well as on my own. It's a great place to stay, the restaurant has great food too.
Rooms are unique, decoration is different in each one, we stayed in 555 (Gypsy- which I absolutely recommend), and my parents in 888 (Glamorous- smaller but has a color changing shower... incredible experience).

If I ever go back to Istanbul, I will definitely stay at Hypnos Hotel.

Room Tip: Glamorus if you're a couple and want to try Color Changing Shower, Gypsy it's bigger, cool i...

This hotel was a great find. I have stayed in the Sultanahmet area twice before and this was the best hotel by far. I wouldn't stay anywhere else after finding this gem. The location is perfect - right by the tram so you can get all over the city, and a brief walk to all the major sites. We checked in around 9am after flying all night and were given our room immediately. After a short nap and shower we were ready to go. On our way out the day manager offered to move us to a larger room (we had booked a standard room and were upgraded two categories) since they were not full. We accepted and quickly repacked and moved. Although our original room was very nice and well appointed, it was a little small for us with all the luggage we had from our 2+ week trip. The new room was perfect in size and just as interesting design-wise. Both rooms had a balcony, rain shower, shampoo, bath gel and lotion, flat screen TV, refrigerator, plenty of storage drawers, shelves and hangers, and adequate lighting. Our upgraded room additionally had robes and slippers, a shaving kit including a full size can of shaving cream and another balcony. All of the rooms are uniquely decorated and fun - interesting lights, furniture, wall paper, colors and decorator pieces.

Breakfast was included and was ordered off the menu. We enjoyed our selections both days. The restaurant is small and just as interesting design-wise as the rest of the hotel. Interesting chandeliers and accent pieces all over. The kitchen, which was spotless, is separated from the dining area by a glass partition so you can watch your food being made. We had dinner here one night and were happy with our meal. I had the mezze platter and he had them make a simple grilled chicken plate with potatoes. There was no problem handling special orders. Prices were reasonable. Soft jazz plays in the restaurant and it created a relaxing atmosphere.

The front desk staff were very helpful in answering questions and providing directions. We were so interested in the design aspects that we were given a tour of the other rooms. They are all so interesting and pretty. Each has a name and the room personifies the name. There is not a neglected spot in the hotel, even the elevator. One of the walls is glass and the wall is painted and decorated the whole way up, with each landing having a special display.

I highly recommend this hotel and will stay here again.
