“nice, little hotel next to the old quarter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2010

I have had a very nice time in Instanbul and a very nice hotel either. The service was friendly, clear rooms and sanitary, perfect location next to blue mosque (5min.), Haggia Sophia (10Min.) and Grand Bazar (10min) by feet, large breakfast selection and last but not least unbeatable price performance ratio.

Nice and sheap hotel without expensive chichi crowd like pool, sauna, wellness!

I really enjoyed my stay at Deniz houses hotel. They welcomed me at the airport and took me to the hotel. The hotel is about five minutes walk from sultanahmet square. The place is really convenient, you can see most of Istanbul just in a walking distance. The hotel staff is really friendly and eager to help and give advice. Breakfast is excellent; much to choose from. There are lots of touristic trips and travel agencies' brochures at the lobby if you don't know where to go. It's a good hotel in a convenient location with a reasonable price.

Felt good to stay in a place that operated so well, all matters were taken care of punctually. This hotel felt safe and the staff there felt like they were doing their job enjoying it, they had time to advise and even teach few words of turkish language in spare moments. The city can be tiring for tourists : to be constantly offered or asked for something. In this hotel we had nice breakfast every morning and slept our nights well, there were no noisy groups waking you up. This way we had great vacation in Istanbul, we spent days walking and discovering new neighbourhoods and atmospheres in this very beautiful and interesting city.

The Deniz Houses hotel is located at very central Sutanahmet where most major attractions such as the blue mosque and Aya Sophia in Istanbul are in walking distance (all in 10 minutes). many resturant around and a traditional shopping street is next to the blue mosque. It is a very traditional Turkish area and the hotel is Turkish too such as wooden floor with carpet etc. It is not next to the sea but it is amazing it has beautiful sea view from the top floor where we had breakfast. The host of the hotel are very friendly. He arranged cruise and other tours for us. We asked around in other travel agents and found they always offered cheapist deals we could get. And the 4 days tour they arranged after leaving the hotel was also enjoyable. Thank you.

The hotel was picked up based on reviews on tripadvisor and looking at Hotel site. But no one talked of Metro train tracks right behind hotel so every 15 minutes you have to enjoy good noise in room.If can sleep with Noise around you are welcome there.If you do not mind dirty carpets pl go there.Only saving grace was staff on duty which was helpful on information about place and town. Rating ZERO star

Pros
-The staff at Deniz are extremely helpful and accomodating
-Clean and comfortable rooms
-The breakfast consisted of a wide variety of cheeses, jams, cereals, breads, baked goods etc. It was good and filling. Kitchen staff was pleasant, views from the roof were great
-Great value!
-Free internet available at sister hotel across the street
Cons
- A little hard to find. With the caveat that my sense of direction is terrible, I got lost every night!
- Near a highway so there was some noise from trucks, a light sleeper might want to bring earplugs

Overall a great hotel located close to the all the sights in Sultanahmet! If you want to enjoy Istnabul's nightlife though stay closer to Istiklal
