The special category hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Old-town, Istanbul. Idylle Hotel offers an exquisite stay in an elegant and stylish environment with excellent views over Istanbul. Most of the magnificent sites in Istanbul are located exactly in Sultanahmet – the “the Old City”. Here you will find the Blue Mosque, the Topkapi Palace, and the Hagia Sophia. Other historical landmarks are the Grand Bazaar, the Spice Market, and the unique Underground Cistern. The hotel is in an ancient townhouse which was tastefully new renovated in August 2018. It offers beautifully decorated 20 Standard Double Rooms, 4 Family Rooms, 4 Deluxe Rooms and 4 Standard Single Rooms. Street around the hotel is full of outdoor restaurants and colourful cafes as part of the neighbourhood. The public transportation tram stops just across the hotel.

I choose this hotel based on its location and the view to Bosphorus from the 5ft floor and it did not disappoint. The staff at the hotel were all extremely friendly and always ready to help. They allow us to check in early and check our later than their opening times. The breakfast buffet was amazing and had new varieties everyday. I was impressed because one day I asked if they have fig jam and after two days they served us with very tasty fig jam. We enjoy every single morning on their terrace. Close to the public transport(the tram stop is basically right outside the door) and surrounded with historical sites, restaurants makes Idylle Hotel the best choice. I would like to thank all the reception team (Ibrahim, Muhamme and Ugur) and restaurant team(Gamze, Kubra and Melike) for making our stay in Istanbul very special. Definitely I recommend this hotel and I hope so that I can be again their guest.

Hotel's Favorite
My 86-year-old mother and I stayed for 3 nights at the Idylle Hotel to celebrate and welcome the New Year. Overall, we had a wonderful stay. The hotel was ideally located within few-minutes' walking distance from major tourist attractions such as the iconic Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern and Topkaki Palace. The Gulhane Park and the Gulhane tram station of the Metro Istanbul were right across the hotel. The Grand Bazaar was a short 3-station tram ride away. Places of hammam and swirling dervish dance were also nearby. The hotel was surrounded with numerous local restaurants, grocery stores, coffee and tea shops, baklava and Turkish delight stores, street market and souvenir shops. Literally, everything was within reach. We had the deluxe room with a large balcony-like window overlooking the tram station, Gulhane Park and Alemdar Caddesi, and through which we were able to watch the fireworks during New Year's eve. The room was clean and had adequate size for movement for 2 adults. The bed and pillows were comfortable, the toilet/shower had hot water and complete toiletries, and the wifi was functioning well. Check in and check out were quick and efficient. We arrived very early in the morning (around 9:00 AM) and our room was already available, thus we were able to rest immediately after a very long flight from Manila. As for breakfast at the Mirage Lounge, the food spread offered both local and Western dishes. Relaxing views of the city and the Bosporus, plus the abundance of seagulls flying in the area, made our breakfast more enjoyable. What this hotel could really boast of was the amazing customer service that we got in our entire stay. Everybody was very welcoming, courteous and attentive, especially to my elderly mother. We would like to personally thank Ms. Serpil who was the housekeeping staff assigned at the second floor (our room floor). She was very kind, warm and sincere in giving her services to me and my mother. Despite the language barrier (she could barely speak English), she tried really hard to communicate with us while helping us in our room needs. The housekeeping lady at the fourth floor (we did not get her name) offered my mother a chair while we were waiting for the elevator, such a lovely gesture. Special thanks to the very jolly hotel porters Mr. Ferdi and Mr. Furkan for being always ready to help during our stay. Mr. Murat of the Mirage Lounge always served my mother (who he called "Mama") hot coffee and Turkish tea during breakfast with smile. And thanks, too, to Mr. Ugur, one of the receptionists, in accommodating our requests. He also offered us a New Year raffle in which we got a music box from the hotel's souvenir store Hope-On, and my mother loved it a lot. My mother and I highly recommend the Idylle Hotel for travelers to Istanbul, especially the first timers, either for business or leisure, family or solo.

Great staff. Great location within walking distance of many nice restaurants and shops. Just the type of small, charming, boutique hotel that I love. The room was on the smaller side, but it was nicely decorated and comfortable. The only drawback was that I had a corner room overlooking a busy rail station. It did get noisy at times with the trains passing just beneath my window. I would stay again, but I would request a room that does not overlook the train station.

I had a wonderful experience with this hotel. The staff went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect on our stay. The room was beautiful, I would recommend the upgrade for the stunning view of the gardens. We had a beautiful corner view room. This hotel location and price point, as well as amenities and comfort is a must.
