The Ulas Suites are a good option for groups that think they will need a full apartment on their stay in Istanbul. We have a small child and appreciated having a separate room for him to sleep in while the grown ups sat in the living room. You would have to look pretty hard to find a full service hotel suite for this price. Of course, you don't get all of the services or some of the finer touchers that a hotel would provide.
Probably the biggest difference is that the office is off site - about 2 blocks away. It is technically available 24 hours a day, but the evening staff do not speak English. They are extremely friendly and do try to help, but without a common language it is difficult to work with them. Also, the phone number given on the website and on check-in is not for the office. We had trouble getting an answer on that line the one time we had a question.
The apartments are serviceable. Ours was clean and had everything we needed. The rooms are not attractive or well decorated. The linens are mismatched and of low quality. So, if you want an apartment-style accomodation in Istanbul for a good price, Ulas Suites you will like Ulas Suites. If you want a hotel or a pretty room, I'd look somewhere else.More
