“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Istanbul and Yazar Hotel will stay forever in my heart..... my first time in Istanbul was bliss and this second time was paradise. Yazar Hotel has everything a traveller needs and more! Starting from the staff who are all very professional, excellent rooms for price and quality, mouth-watering breakfast , good quiet location.....Thanks a lot to Engin who made my stay a memorable one. His professionality is second to none. Keep up the good work guys and I hope to see you soon again.
I highly recommend Yazar Hotel to everyone who is looking for a very nice and cozy place to stay in Istanbul.

I was on a solo trip on a personal vacation... Spent good days at Yazar Hotel... I liked the Penthouse room, it is very calm and cozy.. I liked it's toilet, it is very intimate and romantic for a couple... It's location is a bit far from the main street, but the good thing about it is that it is always calm, no traffic sounds... The view from the rooftop is really amazing anytime through the day...
The staff were very welcoming...
I spent good 5 days at Yazar Hotel :)

This hotel has the same owner as Minel hotel in Istanbul, same design, same colors and both are just fine. Very fresh, clean modern rooms, good service, friendly staff. Breakfast, served on the roof terrace was a little limited but got the same selection as all other 3star hotel of this type in Istanbul. Terrace view was lovely!

Convenient location. Hotel is somewhere in the middle between the heart of Sultanahmet and Eminonu. The train stop is about 5 min walk, the Grand Bazaar is also in the walking distance.

Only one BUT - extremely small shower/bathroom in our room and bad floor drainage system. Thank God me and my friend we are both slim but for someone larger this tiny shower would be a real challenge and discomfort. And I guess the shower floor was not designed or installed properly as the water does not find it's way into the drain and floor is always full of water. Brr...The water was near to cold for the first few days and then we asked the hotel personnel to fix it we could finally get a warm water in the shower.

Overall very pleasant stay I would say.

I am so happy with this hotel, it exceeded my expectation. I like how they accommodate us and their kind of service. Special mention is Mesut and Bektas, they are extremely adorable fellow and very helpful. I love the fact that this hotel is very near to all key destinations in sultanahmet. and also walking distance to the tram station. Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern, Topkapi Palace, all are reachable by walking. Even the Egyptian Bazaar and Grand Bazaar are very near by walk.

Also walking distance to Grand Bazaar, Topkapi, Hagia Sophia, The Blue Mosque, Misir bazaar etc. Highly recommended. Thank you very much Engin and Muhammet. Hope to come again in the future.
