Hypnos Design Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 28, 2014

Quirky hotel with 11 different themed rooms. We took a cab from the airport and it cost us just over 45TL but if you wanted to save money and take public transport then it is located within an extremely short walk from Gülhane tram stop.

Breakfast was ordered from the menu rather than a buffet and there were plenty of eateries located in the neighbourhood if you wanted to eat out for dinner.

We liked it because of its cool design and close proximity to some of the major sights.

Room Tip: The views from the balconies of the higher up rooms were more impressive

I cannot recommend The Hypnos strongly enough; the staff are super friendly, extremely helpful and it was a genuine pleasure to stay there. We were in room 55 (Gypsy) and it was superb. The location was brilliant we could walk everywhere within 10-15 minutes and we saw all the sites we wanted to in the 4 days we were there. The hotel is really clean and welcoming; breakfast was freshly cooked every day, no buffet in sight. If you are going to Istanbul I strongly recommend you stay here.

Room Tip: Room 55 has a lovely balcony and is a little larger than the others

We stayed for 4 nights and the hotel was great.
Location: close to Hagia Sophia;
Breakfast was fantastic, so much better than buffet breakfasts.
We stayed in the Turkish movies room and it was very cosy & chic.

We were so happy we chose this for our honeymoon. The location was key! It was walking distance to everything! All major sites and the area was fun to explore back streets. Our room was small but excellent. Hot shower with color changing lights was so cool. Bed very comfortable and ample to eat and choose from for breakfast. Very recommended.

I had the smallest room of the hotel as I was alone and they were full but it was efficiently furnished. I especially loved the bathroom - although I wondered why the shower needed to be lit form the floor!
The location is terrific if you're there to see the sights, as Sultanhamet is on your doorstep and you can even walk across the Galata bridge to get to Galata / Pera and Istiklal (count 25mn to Istiklal).
The cafe is nice and the food is tasty.
I'm not sure how much light the other rooms get but you might want to avoid a street-facing one on the first floor, it doesn't give much privacy.

My husband, myself and our 3 children - aged 15, 13 & 12 stayed at the Hypnos hotel for 2 nights and 2 days. Everything was really lovely. The hotel was in the most amazing position - close to all the main attractions in the old city. The rooms and bathrooms, albeit small, were beautifully decorated and very clean. The staff were all so friendly and welcoming and took great care of us. Coming back everyday was like coming home. We will definitely stay there again when we return to Turkey. Thank you to Mr Gurkan and his wonderful staff for making our stay so memorable. We highly recommend the Hypnos Hotel.
