I didn't mind staying here but it is true what other users are saying about it not being a 4-star hotel. The rooms are cramped, they can only give you one key even if multiple people are sharing a room, the wifi was slow and not always available, and there's no way to get bottled water late at night. We...

I would say this is barely a 3-star hotel. Bedroom are too small, bathrooms are tiny, no bathrooms accessories are provided and there is barely a tiny soap bar and a few milliliters of shower gel, carpets are always dusty and are not cleaned daily, bed sheets are not changed daily, bath towels are old, no housekeeping or room service...

Worst hotel I've been to, the carpet is never cleaned, the towels are perforated, the bed sheets and covers were not changed during our stay. Our bathroom was extremely small, my shoulders wouldn't fit in front of the lavatory to wash my face!! No toiletry were provided except a small soap bar. Wifi is bad, and the safe box didn't...

That's a great hotel though it's small but the service makes you feel comfortable .. from the restaurant to the rooms service,the cafe and the reception you will feel like in home . The view is on a public buildings and streets.

We had lost our keys to the suitcases lock. On inquiring with the Hotel Staff they guided us to the locksmith who was few shops away and we solved our problem by getting new locks and breaking the old ones which did not cost much. The breakfast served was good and nutritious with good spread. The housekeeping staff were prompt...

The City Hotel .... what can be said about it, the location is obviously not an ideal location as even to reach a respectable eating joint we have to walk atleast for a good 20 minutes. The Service was although acceptable but the people were cold not at all welcoming, and the breakfast never changes its the same through out...

the hotel is acceptable but the location is not .It lies in the middle of car shops accessories. You have to walk a bit far to find a market. If i am to go again to Istanbul i would choose the area of SultanAhmed and close to the tramway stop.That is in the old city district .

For my honeymoon, my wife and I were recommended this hotel by those who live in Istanbul, and that was a bad choice. When the reservations were made, we requested a room with one bed, especially a honeymoon suite - and we were given a very small room with two small twin beds that we had to push together. The...

My friend and I we stayed in this hotel in June 2014. The hotel does not deserve four stars. Rooms are small, bathroom too, with no isolation, so that the voices from the neighboring room, you can listen in your room. Rooms are cleaned every day. Hotel is not properly marked, it is a little hard to find, plunged in...
