The Constantine Hotel
Ranked #198 of 1,171 Hotels in Istanbul
Reviewed November 27, 2013

I recommend Constantin Hotel with all my heart. Its position, friendly staff and great manager will give you a reason to come back again and again. It is so near to Aia Sophia and Blue Mosque, to Golden Horn and Kapali Bazaar, Topkapi Park is in neighborhood... Someone will say it is noisy, but I will answer: if you want calm and quit place for your sojourn, go to Geneva, Istanbul without its specific noise is not Istanbul. So enjoy your staying in Istanbul and choose CONSTANTIN Hotel!

Room Tip: 4th floor is great with its view to Topkapi Park

The Staff of the hotel was very friendly and competent. Buffet breakfast- delicious. The location of the hotel is central - the Topkapi Saray Museum, Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Archeological Museum, the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia are all within walking distance. I will definitely stay there again.

This is an older style hotel situated near the Topkapi Palace and Blue Mosque. The rooms are large and comfortable and the staff go out of their way to be helpful, immediately fixing any problems. The hotel is situated at the Gulhane Tram Stop, making it easy to travel there from the airport by train and tram. There are many excellent restaurants nearby.

During my vacation my husband and I stayed at Constantine Hotel which is in a centric location. The hotel staff is extremely attentive and helpful (waiters, manager, receptionist and cleaning lady). It is a very nice and are near to all points of interest in Istanbul. Every time we entered to hotel the staff offered me a cup of coffee and for my husband his Turkish tea.

Well Sirkeci is still my favorite area to stay when in Istanbul- the price you pay when staying in this area is the noise and hotels with selfinvented ratingsystem and homepages not really reflecting the truth.. I can inform you that this hotel is a great place to stay- for its 2 star rating you will be pleasantly surpriced. Rooms varies in size, beds confortable, cleaning everyday incl change of towels and toiletries, plenty of hot water, minibars- some working, some not- flatscreens looks nice- even better if it had tv-reception too. Aircon works- but in summermonths there is not much airflow and rooms will be HOT.. Hotel even has an elevator. The wifi is a bit slow but quite good.

I heard some people complaining about breakfast- which I really do not understand- Turkey serves Turkish breakfast- and this buffet served even more than that..And no, you do not get bacon for breakfast in Turkey! Cereals are not a part of Turkish breakfast, so do not expect same selection as in your country. But you will find plenty to choose from.

Staff is indeed courteous, helpful and ever so friendly- real turksih hospitality.
As Gülhane tramstop is right infront of the hotel- in the narrow street, you will experience noise- especially if you are located in rooms with streetview- bring earplugs.

I recommend this hotel- and will be happy to return on my next stay in istanbul.

Room Tip: i definately recommend to request rooms facing the backside
