Reviewed February 26, 2014

We stayed there end of October, 2013 for four days. Room booked by our travel agency. The hotel is nicely located in the historic and touristy part of the Old City, nearby all things of interest to the tourist. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast OK but we have seen worse. Rooms clean and comfy-standard issue. Just what we wanted and very happy to recommend the place to any one. Got what we expected and were surprised by all things Istanbul-it is a mad place especially to people visiting from Australia.

Great location and great access to lots of attractions in Istanbul. However, our room was pathetically small, dowdy, no air and a view of what looked like an elevator shaft. We had to sleep with the door open to the hallway as the room was too stuffy. Complementary breakfast was good.

Travel agent booked a room at this hotel for us. We were travalling with the little kid and when we arrived the kids bed was already in the room. The room was large and light (509). The room was cleaned every day, towels changed as well. The furniture is in good condition, There was a new and comfortable mattress on the bed. View from the window is fine: other buildings and streets.
Breakfast is common but ok. Cheese, olives, vegetables, fruits, flakes, eggs, tea, coffee, milk - for me it was absolutely enough.
But there was some minuses, which are worth mentioning. Smell of WC in the room and facilities in the bathroom aren't new, but work fine.
Well, we really enjoyed staying at this hotel and the minuses it has didn't affect our holidays.

Room Tip: The higher floor the better view. Room 509 is very large and comfortable.

the hotel is very good situated , in the old part of the city, close to the gulhane tram station( 2,3 minutes by foot,) and 7, 8 minutes to agia sofia, 1 min to different restaurants.
my opinion is that it worths the money you pay because is very central. although it s a relative one because first we were given a small room, with the window facing a very small tunnel( like an elevator one), so without any natural light. after talking with the guy in the reception, he changed us the room. this one was a big one, one of the best he said( the biggest one in the pictures), on the 6 th floor. this was much better, had natural light, though it was in front of the breakfast room, so we woke every day quite early. but was big and comfortable.the cleaning was made every day, also some ordering in the room, towels changed, shampoo completed, etc
the staff very kind. i would choose it for the position and the money paid. the breakfast was a little poor, same thing every day( we had 4 days). it was hard for me, as i love meat and there weren t any. only one kind of ham which was terrible. so you can eat bread, butter, cheese, jam, honey, olives, boiled eggs, cereals with milk. also coffee and a very strong black tea.

Room Tip: avoid rooms beside the stairs. they don t have natural light.

Erbil is well situated for easy access to the attractions of Istanbul. The staff are very helpful and friendly especially for first-timers in Turkey. We stayed here twice - large room the first time, very compact room the second time, but both were warm and comfortable.

Hotel is situated in a great location to major sites in Istanbul. Easy to walk to tourist locations without having to catch a taxi.

Rooms are very small and bathroom average. Room had decent air conditioning.

Breakfast was poor, with limited options.

Friendly staff. Would only stay one or two nights.

Stayed one night on a stopover, totally ok. Service minded staff, central location and small but clean rooms. I got tummy issues after my stay, and I suspect them to use water in the juice served for breakfast, but I am not sure. Good price for a ok hotel, no worries.
