All the good things people say about this hotel are true. We feel we were really fortunate to choose it from the handful of Istanbul hotels offered by our tour operator. It was our first visit to Istanbul - we are already planning our next trip, and we will certainly stay at Hotellino again. The location is ideal; the rooms, while small, are well equipped and very well laid out with adequate storage and shelf space. Good free toiletries, safe, bath robes and slippers, free bottled water. Buffet breakfast with excellent choice and good coffee.
Mine (say "Mina"), the owner, is a real gem. Without being intrusive she is a real "Mine" of information, on what to see, how to get there and everything else. (Buy a public transport card and get around on trams, public ferries, buses, Metro and the like - marvellous value and the best way to get to know the city.)
OK, the view from our room was uninspiring to say the least - but (late September) we had no construction noise, and not much other noise either - and we are not heavy sleepers.
Plenty of choice of restos within five minutes' walk - the touts are vexing at first, but only one was a real pain!
We are really looking forward to visiting the Hotellino again! It's just what a "Boutique" hotel should be.
