“Beautiful small boutique hotel with great location and staff.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2010

I have stayed in Istanbul before. I live in Turkey. Hotellino is a small boutique hotel that is situated near the Golden Horn and is located 10 minutes walk from the main attractions. Shopping is available right out the door. It is tucked away on a small side street, so it is best to reach by taxi. Have the hotel's telephone number available for the taxi driver to call and you should have no trouble getting there. Rooms are real nice and clean and the staff is great. Nice breakfast bar as well that should be included in the price.

it was a nice and most importnt clean hotel at the center of istanbul.You can walk to hagia sofia , blue moschow even to taksim square and istiklal street without take any transportation.The manager was very helpful and always willing to give solution for your problems and answer your questions.The breakfast was very nice too.The only one it is bad to this hotel is the view.
Thanks for the exchange(nargile-cup)

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. The location was perfect and the hotel staff very helpful. The rooms were clean and up to date, and also included free bottles of water and breakfast. I would highly recommend this hotel!

This hotel is located near major tourist attractions and provides clean, minimalist, modern decorated rooms with heartfelt B&B service.

The hotel manager/owner is professional and helpful. The staff noticed a person in our party had a birthday during our trip and surprised us with a birthday cake. The staff are all helpful and nice. The hotel is impeccably clean. The rooms have all the necessaries one would find at a nice hotel, including 3 bottles of water per guest per day. Also, wifi internet is included for every room.

The hotel is located in very convenient location, within close walking distance to the Sultanahmet and the Galata Bridge. The Sultanahmet isn't for everyone, being tourist central, but it's a great location if you have limited time.

Simply a fantastic hotel with first class service.

The hotel looks unprepossessing from the outside as there is buliding work going on in the next plot but inside, it is a little haven. The location is great; it's near to the major tourist sights, trams and the Bosphorous and Golden Horn. There are good restaurants within easy walking distance. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Everything provided in the rooms actually works! There are also extras such as dressing gowns, slippers and loads of bathroom goodies. We had a great 5 days seeing the sites, enjoying great variety of food and drink and also the friendliness of the Turkish people on both sides of the Bosphorous.

Nice, comfortable, small and charming city-hotel. Very nice and helpfull personnel, who are willing to help you out with nice restaurants, tips for shopping and nightlife.
Every day clean room and bathroom. Nice breakfast. The hotel is close to the Blue Mosk, Aya Sophia and Topkapi Palace. To Taksim is a 15 minute drive.

Hotellino was as good as portrayed in trip adviser.All staff were helpful and pleasant,they accomodated all my needs and went out of their way to always please. I arrived early in Istanbul and had requested if possible an early check in before 0900 this was done with a smile and no problem, much to my delight after a very long flight from Australia.
Hotellino is within walking distance of all the major sightseeing places including the Bosphorus and public transport if you wish to venture out further, but walking is the best way to appreciate this wonderful city and it's beautiful people.Some have mentioned the view is poor from this hotel, but you only need to step out around the corner to see history.The marmary project is next door and they are currently excavating ruins from this site which they discovered while digging, this was also exciting to see for me.
Breakfast is simple but plentiful enough to keep me going for most of the day, tasty, fresh and healthy.
I will definitely return to Hotellino on my next trip to Istanbul,"why fix something if it is not broken"
