I have just returned from a week in Istanbul staying at the Santa Hill.The hotel is slap bang on a very busy dual carriageway but the sound insulation is very good and despite my room facing the road,I didnt feel noise was an issue.Also,dont be put off by the rather grubby yellow exterior,once inside the standard of decor is very good.
My room was excellent,very comfortable bed and large bathroom with full sized bath and over bath shower.The television set was of high quality and there were dozens of channels available including BBC World tv and radio.
Breakfast was buffet with the standard mix of bread,cheeses,cooked meats etc plus some fruit and pastries.Not wildly exciting but of decent quality and good enough to set me up for 7 days of hard sightseeing.
The centre of the new part of the city is within 5-10 minutes walk with loads of shops and places to eat.It is not quite so straighforward to get to the older part, a taxi would be probably the best bet although I walked for about fifteen minutes and then took the tram.It took me about 20 minutes to walk to the hotel from Taksim Square where the airport shuttle bus drops off.
The staff were efficient and helpful when asked.There was a computer in the reception area but it was not mentioned if this was for guest use.
I really enjoyed my stay at the Santa Hill,it sets a very high standard for a small and well priced hotel

We stayed in Santa hill from 5th - 12th of Nov with my wife & 2 children .... The rooms are so clean & well furnished with a stylish ottoman design, bathroom was nice & clean, the location is just perfect 5 minutes walk to istiklal street & the staff is so helpful & cooperative especially Mr. Noah & Mr. Savas the breakfast was ok. It was only 16 rooms so you fell like you are in a family big house! I definitely recommend it to everyone looking for a new, clean & cheap hotel.

Room Tip: Room 203 was perfect

Rooms average, breakfast poor, no routines for housekeeping. Towels and bathrobes taken away and no new ones returned, toiletpaper had to be asked for. When rooms were booked the charged by mistake whole amount on our card. But to return the money took a month! Then at check-out they charged us for their loss of exchange rate. We had to pay more than €78 extra from the agreed amount when booking.

If you are looking for a hotel with a friendly staff in a good location on the other side of the bridge this is your place. Very friendly, in walking distance of the main attractions and the Bosphorus, and a good breakfast. The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable.
