Hatay Hotel
Ranked #604 of 1,171 Hotels in Istanbul
Reviewed November 28, 2011

We spent 2 nights at the Hatay - it was supposed to be 3 but they mixed up our reservation on our arrival night and sent us to a horrible hotel a couple of doors away. When we went back to the Hatay, the next day, they were sorted out and did give us a room. The room was pretty cramped, and the bedding was a little tired (holes in it), and the internet intermittent. The breakfast was okay but was served across the street at the Antioch hotel. The best thing about the Hatay was the location which was convenient. We came back to Istanbul weeks later, at the end of our stay in Turkey and found much better accommodation, quieter, closer to the attractions for 20 euros less per night. Shop around!

The first time I was in Istanbul, my husband - the third. I love the city and the hotel. Staff is very friendly. Room a bit cramped, but for the 6 days of our stay was our own. At the end did not want to leave. Good price. And the breakfasts are good too. Every day I gladly went to the cafe. If you want to relax in comfort, you can safely stay at this hotel!!!

The location is great, very close to the tram line. The hotel staff are really nice and very helpful. It was less than a 10min walk to all the major sites and the price was extremely good. The breakfast however can be improved.

Room Tip: The top floor room was the biggest but there is noise from the elevator.

I really hate to bash a small business, but, these 2 hotels are so poorly run, I can't believe that you can't find better for your money in Istanbul. Really pretty much **everything** was wrong with these hotels. The water, electricity went on and off. My room wasn't clean. The elevator's floors didn't map to the hotel floors. There was no room service at all while I was there. It really was a depressing place. They also wanted to put me on the 6th floor which had no elevator to it and felt like a fire trap. While I was in the lobby, people kept coming downstairs to the front desk with complaint after complaint. Stay away from the Hatay (and Antioch!!!) unless you are looking for something that is funky and more like a youth hostel (nothing against youth hostels but I'm just past the age of roughing it to that extent).

We flew to Istanbul to celebrate the New Year, Hotel Hatay was booked in advance. However, the hotel free rooms did not have and we lived in a nearby hotel Antioch. The Turks know how to deceive and convince us that Antioch is also their property, only the name of another. Number of Antioch was terrible and small. On the last night we all slept in the same alleged hotel room Hatay, where they received the number, which paid for. Breakfast at the hotel of average quality, but will not stay hungry. Tourists beware and ask them to return for their money!
Прилетели в Стамбул отмечать Новый год, отель Hatay был забронирован заранее. Однако в отеле свободных комнат не оказалось и нас поселили в соседний отель Antioch. Турки умеют обманывать и нас убедили, что Antioch это тоже их отель, только название другое. Номер в Antioch был ужасен и маленький. В последнюю ночь мы все же ночевали в заявленной комнате отеля Hatay, где получили номер, который и оплачивали. Завтраки в отеле среднего качества, но голодными не останетесь. Туристы, будьте внимательны и требуйте отдачу за свои деньги!

This hotel had the kindest staff ever. They were genuinely kind and helpful.They'll help you get around the city and suggest good and affordable restaurants to eat in. But more than that, they really go out of their way to make you feel at home. When they found out it was my dad's birthday, they actually bought him a cake. This family-run hotel treat their guests like family.

The rooms too, although a bit small, are clean and cozy. They also have a generous buffet breakfast served without charge. They also offer a shuttle service for free from the airport but not to the airport. The location is pretty good too. The Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace are just a short walk away.

Hatay hotel is located in a quiet alley just near the main street that runs through Sultanahmet (where the trams are). You can easily reach it by tram, exit at Gulhane and walk down the street for 200 meters.

Got the room on 6th floor near the elevator shaft, which translated to loud noise every time somebody was using the elevator. No big deal for me though. Room wasn’t very spacious, however the double bed was perfect – large and comfortable. TV, bathroom, toilet – all in good working condition. Room was clean, but the maid never bothered with everyday cleaning, - just made the bed and changed towels.

Breakfast was basic but satisfactory, vegetables, cheese, eggs and sausages, enough to keep you up and running for the morning and there are plenty eating opportunities in Istanbul (I’d recommend roasted fish sandwiches in one of the cafes under Galata bridge, only 4 TL!).

Staff were excellent– English speaking, most helpful and friendly. All in all – good value for your money (45 EUR / night for a double room / single stay).

I can recommend this hotel for Turkish F1 GP (hope it will be there next year!) or anyone visiting Istanbul. Perfect location for all Sultanahmet attractions and trams will get you to other areas.
