I booked a city break in April in this hotel. From the online booking until the end of my stay there, everything was perfect:
The online booking was directly via the hotel's website, which guarantees the reservation, but changes and cancellations can be made up to 24 hours before the actual arrival, which is very flexible - i.e. no lost money on booking in case of last-minute changes.
I was give options / preferences and I asked for a non=smoking room on the upper floor, with 3 beds (there was 3 of us) and everything was arranged as I asked.
The hotel is new (or newly renovated) in a perfect place in the old town, within one minute walk from the Sirkeci train station and tram stops - 5 mins walk from Topkapi palace and the park, 10 mins walk from Saint Sofia and the Blue Mosque, as well as the Basilika Cistern, 15 mins from the grand bazaar, and all other interesting and historical sites in the European part of the city. I walked across the Galata bridge to the Galata tower and Taksim square - great for enjoying the views of the Bosphor.
On the ground floor of the hotel there are lovely stores - Koska sweet shop - full of yummy lokum and baklava, and another patisserrie with the best window display, full of exsquisite sweets, both open till late.
The hotel reception team and everyone else (housekeeping, breakfast team, the person who manned the sauna and turkish bath) are all friendly, knowleadgeable and professional - they go out of their way to help and make the stay in the hotel comfortable.
Our room was large, sunny, with modern equipment, nice view, spotlessly cleaned regularly - always with fresh towels, toiletries and coffee / drinks topped up regularly.
Room service never disturbed us when we were in the room, but every time we returned from one of our sightseeing outings, the room was spotless.
The breakfast selection is excellent - everything is fresh, the coffee and other hot drinks are great. There are savouries, cornflakes, various fresh pastries, soft drinks, selection of salads, ham, cheese, olives, jams, pancakes... the list is long - easy to indulge and put on weight!
The sauna is new, the turkish bath is amazing- all made of marble, with lovely mosaic tiles around the taps - very relaxing after a long day of walking around town. Clean and perfect, quiet - some evenings I was on my own there!
All in all, this hotel and all teams made my visit to this beautiful city unforgettable.
If you want to stay in a luxury and comfort, book here.
You will be well looked after by the staff and you'll remember your visit in Istanbul.
Thank you to everyone at Eurostars Old City - your hospitality is the best!
If I return to Istanbul, I will come back and will warmly recommend this hotel to all my friends.
