“Fantastic stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

Stayed here for one night before joining a tour, based on the great reviews.
I wasn't disappointed.
The location is fantastic, with the rooms not too noisy especially considering the location. Just about everything 'touristy' that you want to see in Istanbul is within walking distance, and the staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly, although a couple of jokes went over my blonde head!! ;) The rooms are maybe a touch on the small side but very clean and tidy with a large comfortable bed and proper blinds which seemed to be an unusual thing in Turkey.
The bathroom was very clean and tidy with great water pressure...there were a couple of mismatched tiles where some repairs were done but who cares about aesthetics when you can actually have a decent shower.
Breakfast was a little so-so. The food on offer was fine but I didn't like the basement room it was in - kind of depressing. Maybe they should move it to the restaurant attached to the hotel as I didn't see much (if any) trade first thing anyway.
Had laundry done whilst there. It was really quick, well priced and done well.
I would definitely choose the Constantine over another more expensive hotel I stayed at in Istanbul if or when I return. The price, location and service cannot be beaten.

The location of the Constantine is perfect. Right out front of the Gulhane tram station, ten minute walk to Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar, five minute walk to the Topkapi Palace, and extremely close to the waterfront and there are plenty of nice cafes and restaurants nearby. The hotel itself is clean and safe. Breakfast is good. Boiled eggs, fruit, toast, veggies and lots of cake. The service at the Constantine is amazing. Tuncay is possibly the friendliest and most helpful person in Istanbul. Always smiling, happy to help and treats the guests as his own friends. Often we would come back from a busy day of sightseeing and he would always offer us Turkish teas and coffees. Would come back to this hotel for sure.

I warmly reccomend the Constantine hotel, the location is great, with a tran stop just next to it. Staff are amazing and the rooms really clean and comfortable. It is the perfect place for travellers who want to see the old city yet be within proximity of Taxim.

Stayed recently with my wife, loved the staff, the hotel is opposite Gülhane Park, close to all attractions, the breakfasts were delicious. We especially liked Tuncay - he told us many interesting things about Istanbul. Tuncay has always been a kind and witty, we are grateful to Tuncay for advice on all matters

Small cozy hotel in the city center, excellent value for money. Pleased not only a good location, and friendly staff. Special thanks to the young man by the name of Tuncay readiness for the response and help! Because of such people in the hotel you will want to return again!
