There is only one advantage of this hotel which is location to city transport. The hotel is located close to Aksaray metro station which is straight line from airport Ataturk and 2 minutes to T1 tramway station. The disadvantages are the following: 1) the hotel is located close to Mosque and every day at 6 o'clock you will wake up... More

Location of this hotel is perfect. There are tram and two metro stops not far from the hotel. Breakfast was perfect: same, but varied. Room is nice, not big, cozy, but minus is poor soundproofing. Also hospitable staff.

Especially when it's in Istanbul - this city is over crowded like you would not believe- so when the Tourist season starts the hotel rates climb and climb... so my usual hotel becomes too expensive and my travel agent suggests this one instead.......... At best it's a tourist hotel at worst it s a rip off - poor furniture quality,... More

Mid-way between the Aksaray metro stop (end of the Red line that leads to Ataturk Airport) and the Yuşufpaşe metro stop (middle of the Blue line with a short ride to Sultanamet, Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Golden Horn, etc.) the location is ideal. Comfortable beds, a good bath, reasonably sized rooms and an excellent buffet breakfast. We stayed only one... More

Staying in Fener & Balat

Neighborhood Profile
Fener & Balat
This sleepy and rather socially conservative area of Istanbul hosts a small but thriving Jewish community, the patriarchate of the Eastern Orthodox Church, and some of the most beautiful churches and Christian art in the world. Much of what’s most interesting to witness in Fener and Balat sits between the surviving ancient city walls of Constantinople and the serene shores of the Golden Horn. Despite the many splendid sights, historic attractions, stunning vistas, and warm Turkish welcome, the area remains largely unperturbed by the tourist trade that characterizes the atmosphere in nearby Sultanahmet and around the Grand Bazaar. Travelers that like to explore off the beaten track will reap big rewards for making the effort to visit this low-key part of town.
