Beautiful hotel, with the best location. It’s close to everything and still peaceful. The staff is also very helpful. The design of the hotel is very unique and every room is special. We lived in the ottoman suite. Everything in the room was beautiful.

We had an amazing stay in Istanbul. The boutique hotel is located at the centre of the old town and the pictures of the hotel and room looked exactly as the pictures on their website. Looking forward to yet another great stay when we next visit Istanbul!! We’ve made a vlog of our trip so for more information find us by searching Taja & Mamoyo into YouTube. Accommodation – we stayed in the Penthouse x1 bedroom, the room had a balcony overlooking Hagia Sophia which was a welcomed bonus view, King-size bed and a bathroom (shower). The décor was fitting for the Turkish old city vibe. The rooms were also very clean and cleaned daily with fresh towels provided. Breakfast food – We had bed and breakfast, so only breakfast was included. This was all in the main dining area and was served to us, the breakfast was not to our taste, however some elements of it were enjoyable. Location – The town centre has an abundance of restaurants and shops, with the main tourist attractions being the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Hippodrome and the Grand Bazaar. You can also book boat trips and excursions from the many travel agencies. We booked one of our excursions prior to travelling, we booked via Viator. We Highly recommend the night cruise on the Bosphorus and also the Turkish Hammam both these were booked via Tour agency – Sea and Land Travel Agency. Covid – Sanitizer is readily available in the main communal area.

Bit confused while looking at the reception, it was supposed to be like one due to the style & design of the establishment...Cool. Stayed here for 3 nights. Located at the center of the old town. Had some challenges with the hot water in the bathroom, however was fixed within minutes. Breakfast was excellent and simple, I guess better than the ones having buffet as there’s no food wastage and prepared to one’s consumption as required. Only issue was construction adjacent to the hotel, with some hammering and drilling works which was stopped after 23:00 hrs.(understandable),since we were all day long sightseeing. Receptionist were welcoming and honest.

hotel is perfectly located centrally from main tourist attractions - Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace all within 10-15 min walking distance - and several restaurants and shops all around There is also a tram station just outside the hotel. in it self the hotel/rooms were very clean but rather small, although understandable considering the limited space available within the town centre. dining area was also comparatively small and no buffet option. you have to pre-order your breakfast if you intend to leave early for the day. service was great and responsive. overall a good experience

Stay 3 nights with my friend in Istanbul. The location of the hotel was great. It's a few minutes walk to Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque. There's lots of restaurants nearby as well, it's very convenient. Breakfast was good too! However, the room we stayed was a bit rundown on their amenities. But overall it was great stay ;)

The staff were so polite and helpful. We had the best room in the hotel, Room 111, a stunning view of the Hagia Sofia. The breakfast was simple, but perfect for what we needed. It is so centrally located to the best areas such as the Grand Bizarre, Spice Bizarre, Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque and so many wonderful street side restaurants. Whoever, needs a small Boutique Hotel, then this one is for you!! Well done to the staff of Hypnos Hotel, you made our stay in your beautiful City perfect!

We had 5 nights here and had 2 rooms - each room was differently themed. So clean and comfortable. Staff very polite, great choice for breakfast which was fresh and very tasty. In a fantastic location just by metro stop and 10 minute walk away from main attractions. Would recommend this hotel.

From a tourist's point of view the biggest advantage of this hotel is its location: it's within easy walking distance of many of Istanbul's biggest attractions (Aya Sofiya, Topkapı, the Blue Mosque, the Basilica Cistern) and has the Gülhane tram stop right at the end of its street, barely a minute's stroll away, to take you slightly further afield (the Grand Bazaar in one direction, over the bridge to Beyoğlu in the other). It's also surrounded by a wealth of cafés, bars, restaurants and shops. This does mean late-night noise, but plenty of choice. Another attraction is its intimacy: with just 11 rooms spread out over five floors, it's never crowded (except when more than three people want to use the lift, which is rather cosy - and one side of which is see-through, so be sure to watch the wall as it glides past for the surprising details it reveals). It also means the friendly staff have time to interact with and help the guests. Like us, you'll probably be shown to your room on arrival and find that any questions you have will be happily answered. We were in room 99 on the 4th floor - the Passion suite, according to the sign next to the door - whose colour scheme is predominantly red and black. It wouldn't have been my first choice, but there are some interesting design touches, such as the main light with its mesmerising, how-does-it-do-that? 3D effect. (Similar chromatic delights are promised in the shower, but refused to work for me - see below.) The room is spacious, albeit with some slightly awkward angles, and lots of storage. Comfortable bed as well, although anyone looking for a duvet may be flummoxed at first by the thin blanket that's the only covering you're provided with. Of the usual hotel accoutrements, here you have tea/coffee making facilities, an easy-to-use safe and a minibar with very reasonable prices by Western standards, although everything in it is available at half the already reduced price from the stores on the surrounding streets. There's also a TV and radio. Unfortunately, presumably due to the density of competing networks, the WiFi is next to useless - we resorted to buying a prepaid SIM with 9 GB of data for Ł140 (ca €20) and it worked perfectly. We also found that neither of our bedside table lamps were working, but hanging on the door behind the Do Not Disturb sign was another on which you could tick off a list of things that needed fixing in your room. I wasn't sure whether this was a bad sign (do things need fixing that often in this hotel?!) or a good one ("Got a problem? We'll sort it out!") until they were promptly fixed while we were out on our first full day. The shower lighting never was, alas. With this being the case, it might be an idea for them not to advertise the feature with a prominent card on the bathroom shelf. They might also want to address the lighting in the bathroom generally, as it's not great, and the mirror both there and just outside above the dresser are both set so that anyone taller than about 5'5" has to stoop to see themselves. Other [minor] annoyances are that the left-hand bedside table only has one power point, so you can either use the lamp or recharge something, but not both, and that the right-hand sliding door onto the half-balcony opens from the left, behind the armchair and table. Breakfast is served in the small but charming restaurant on the ground floor. Due to its size there's no buffet: rather you order a la carte and it's prepared for you. The menu is impressively long, with a choice encompassing toasted sandwiches, fresh fruit with yoghurt, muesli and of course eggs (done a variety of ways), plus teas, coffees and juices. There's also a big, traditional Turkish breakfast. Order as little or as much as you like - it's all included in the price. Service is quick and professional and the food is great. Overall, for an establishment which earned the title of Europe's best design hotel just five years ago, it's looking a bit frayed at the edges (and not just the bath towels) - it's not bad by any means, but with marks here and there, not scrupulously clean and some pieces of furniture having seen better days. Breakfast and the personalised feel to the service go a long way to make up for any shortcomings, however, and on the whole we were happy with our stay.
