Doesn't matter there is snow outside and temperature in the room is 10-15C. Boss told to the employees to do not put the heating on.

It was basically cold and they didn't give us any heater. Heating was on only for an hour on the evening and we went ill after all.

Coffee was good. Room were clean.

Upon arrival was shown to our room at top of hotel. Floor so uneven laying on the bed feet were higher up than our head. Tried to call manager 5 times to tell them room was cold as radiator wasn't working but no reply.
Shared bathroom. Room very basic, bed uncomfortable, small towels for washing, light broken. very noisy, continuously doors banging throughout the night. Rated 4 stars but more like 1 star. Very poor quality hotel and quite run down . Would not recommend for£70 a night.

Trying to find somewhere reasonably priced in Brighton right in the middle of the Lib Dem Conference was not easy. Almost everywhere is over priced and offered at pretty much London rates. Then I found the Istanbul Ev Guest House and made a booking for two nights.

I have to say that this is not a luxury hotel which is why it is aptly called a guest house. I did not get her name but the person who met me on check in was very friendly and professional and even sent a text message to check my arrival time. Although named the Istanbul Ev Guest House and with its Mavi Boncuk ( Turkish Evil Eye ) decoration in the main hallway this is very much the same as any English Guest House in a seaside town.

The rooms are clean and tidy and the coffee facilities are generous. Also nice to see that they had left two bottles of water and provide a fridge in the room. The bed was comfortable enough and you can get a good nights sleep. I was not disturbed by any loud noises or party goers as some people have suggested in earlier reviews although my room was at the rear of the establishment rather than at the front.

Had I had more time I would like to have known why it was named the Istanbul Ev or what the Turkish connection was. The staff appear to have been Spanish rather than Turkish.

The breakfast in the morning was excellent although served at 08:30 to 09:30 am which meant I had to skip it on the second morning as I had an earlier start. Earlier breakfast times would have been better for the business traveller and also the car parking on the roads surrounding the guest house starts at 9 am which would tie in well with an earlier breakfast. Car parking around here is at a premium with an outstanding rate of £3.50 per hour! From 8 pm at night until 9 am in the morning it is free in the side roads and along the sea front.

This is good for a business traveller since the wi fi works well and everything is close by. The Brighton Pier is literally across the road and there is a nearby Harry Ramsden's Fish and Chips restaurant and the Harvester Restaurant by Sea World with a host of independent restaurants behind the hotel in Kemp Town. For anyone Turkish and missing home there is also the Anatolia Cuisine in St James Street which is only a short distance walk away.

I would definately stay here again if in Brighton. I liked the Istanbul Ev. It is in a good location and meets all the requirements of a business traveller. Tavsiye ederim. Cok guzel ve cok begendim.
