“Great Hotel, Fantatic Staff!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

This was my first trip to Istanbul and I made the decision to stay at the Levni Hotel. This ended up being the best choice!!! On arrival I was met by the relations manager who spent time taking me through the hotel and its amenities whist my bags were taken to my room. I upgraded to superior room and it was worth it. The whole hotel was modern and very clean. The use of the gym, pool sauna and other amenities were all included (spa treatments were chargeable but reasonable). The breakfast was good with a varied selection, you had your own omelette chef which was great!!!.

There is construction going on for the new metro station (not a large building at all) but it always finished around 6pm, the advantage of this when completed is that you will be able to travel to Asia side of Istanbul without any issues. The construction did not bother me as i was out all day. The Levni I hear is in the process of building a roof top bar which will be awesome as it will overlook the Bosphorus and the Blue Mosque.

The best bit about the hotel is that It is close to all the main sights of the old town. The hotel is safe as it is right next door to the governor of Istanbul's office. The staff were so helpful, friendly and very family orientated and will do almost anything to help you.

I would highly recommend the Levni, and I look forward to coming back to Istanbul and staying here again. I can't wait to try out the new roof top bar!!!

Thanks to all the Staff at the Levni for a wonderful stay!!!

Stayed at the Levni recently ourselves and couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience. Great location, the decor was modern and clean, the service was excellent (Yesim was particularly friendly and helpful), the breakfast was good (I particularly appreciated the omelette chef!), the pool and spa were lovely. My only complaint, and it's a minor one at that, was related to the previous person's comment about the shower caps, which we put down to cultural differences. Having said this, if they really want people to keep their heads covered in the pool, the hotel should provide proper swimming/bathing caps -- the shower caps from the room kept slipping off and filling with water -- AND they should enforce the rules consistently. I will admit to being a bit annoyed at being asked to wear a shower cap in the pool when there were already people in the pool clearly not wearing theirs.

Would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and family!

The location and service at Levni is excellent, far better than some hotels we stayed at that charged several times the price. There were some building works which meant the outside wasn't as grand as the interior but once inside they didn't bother us at all and also they will soon have a rooftop bar which I imagine will have a great view. The concierge/guest relations are particularly attentive, making sure your stay goes smoothly and helping book and advise on any outings, without being pushy. The rooms, spa and everything else is also faultless, very clean. Breakfast had lots to choose from and was delicious.

There are only tiny oddities with Levni, which could easily be improved: one is they make you wear a shower cap to swim which is a little strange. The second is that there are three lift systems, making moving around the hotel a bit of a chore.

Overall though, we really loved the hotel and would definitely recommend and come back.

Very good value for the prices paid. Rooms very nice furnished, friendly staff, good food and a nice neighborhood. Enjoyed living in Levni hotel Istanbul and special thanks to Oksana Dzyana our trip advisor. Fully worth it to live at that place.

This was our first visit to Istanbul.
We stayed at Levni Hotel for two nights (21-23/7/13) and were very pleased with it. It was such a good value, we got an excellent deal. The hotel is very clean, the rooms beautiful, the bathroom modern and clean and the spa is fantastic. I had a massage and can honestly say this was one of the best massages I have ever had. The spa is run very well, very professional and helpful in accommodating us, considering we had such limited time.
The breakfast is really good and service very efficient.
The location is the best, you can walk to all the major sights, I was very happy with my choice.
It was Ramadan time in Istanbul and the community spirit was great, everyone was out at dusk, families, yound and old, it was a great experience (we're not Muslims, but were very impressed with the atmosphere).
This is the best value hotel I've had for a long time.
The only complaint I have is the construction work next to the hotel and inadequate sound insulation. We were woken up at 1.30 AM by construction noise on our first night there! I believe Ramadan and the heat prevented them form working during the day so they did work at night with very strong lights(ligh was not a problem a they have block-out curtains) I think the construction noise would be a great problem for light sleepers. I eventually managed to fall asleep. For some reason the construction did not happen on our second night and we had a good sleep.Our room overlooked the construction sight, which was a bit of a disappointment. Otherwise the room was really lovely. The room cleaning and housekeeping was faultless. If you could secure a room away from the noise this hotel is ideal for people who do not want to spend a fortune, but still like a good qality accommodation. This is the main reason I gave it five stars. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not overlook the construction sight.

Dear Millie Vuckovic,

Thank you for choosing us for your Istanbul destination, it is great to read your lovely review about us and our hotel.
We are very happy that you have enjoyed the spa and the treaments you received during your stay, and are glad you found our service efficient.

As you have mentioned we do unfortunately have a contruction sit happening around the hotel, like you have mentioned it is due to ramadan that they had to work a couple of nights, but now it is safe to say that all the contruction noise is finished during the night and they are only working on specific hours of the day. There is a very short process left, with in the next month all the construction will be finished and we will finally say hello to the biggest project happening in europe at the moment.
Even though the construction has caused a bit of noise the complete sight will be finished in 1 months time.

So hopefully for your next stay there will be no noise and it will be completely silent and you will have a better stay.

We hope to see you again very soon.

Best Wishes
