4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

From my point of view, the best advantage of that hotel is its location. Placed in the north part of Golden Horn, relatively close to the Eminonu Ferry and just underneath of the famous Suleyman’s Mosque in the heart of typical old Turkish neighborhood. This location means that you can stay far away from the other tourist and feel a bit of Turkish climate. Prices of food and services in that area are much cheaper than Sultan Ahmed which makes that location more friendly for people with tight budget.

The hotel itself is very friendly. Rooms are very tiny but ultra clean. We had a very small room with one big bed inside. There was no extra space for the luggage which was a bit problematic. In general, there was no free space in the room at all. We had common bathroom which was also ultra clean.

Breakfast was included in the room price. First impression was fine, but after comparing with breakfast in other hotels in Eastern Turkey I need to say that breakfast in KarslIoglu Hostel was fresh but insufficient, dull and simple.

Hotel’s staff was extremely nice and helpful despite they almost don’t speak English.

If the hotel’s room charges will stay low It can be very good option to stay in Istanbul
