I reserved this Hotel from London and I stayed in this hotel with my wife and my Parents for around 10 days. You shouldn't expect a big 4 Star Hotel from outside but inside !
Rooms are great. Staff are so friendly specially the Manager and Osman the Receptionist, He guided us so well for sightseeing and going around Istanbul. Although in Istanbul it is hard to find people speaking English, the Receptionists and Manager can help you so well in English. The cleaning Ladies clean the rooms everyday. The rooms are air conditioned and the beds are great. We stayed at Deluxe rooms and they were awesome. And it is well situated, near Taksim Square (10-15 mins Walk) and Istiklal Street (5mins walk). Also I should say that Internet Speed is good and I was able to do my designing over the web. I highly recommend this Hotel for staying inIstanbul...

Rooms are not so clean, without complimentary water, tooth brush and safety box. Very bad location and noisy (Also, the location given in the Google maps is incorrect!). I booked a room for three persons however I got a room with only a queen bed.
The receptions are normal but not very professional they don’t know English as well! I had a bad experience there. I don’t recommend it at all.

I have been in Istanbul several times. It was my first stay at hotel Santa hill. We were 3 persons and got a big room. We loved the room, and the staff was very friendly. The only problem was the location. The was a lot of noise and trafic on the road in front of the hotel. The walls are very thin and you can hear the neighbours in the room next door even when they are talking very slow.

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
