“Centrally loccated and value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 6 nights- family of 4-2 adults and 2 children aged 2 and 8. The apartment was convenient and had ample space for moving abt. The location of this apartment makes it a star. It's located at walking distance from all the important points of interest, tram station, super market, Restruants etc. we cooked breakfast in our room- toast, eggs, butter , cornflakes etc and had lunch/dinner from other places. I suggest u carry some salt and pepper, 3 in one Nescafé coffee/ chai latte , for convenience. There is a supermarket named Greens which is open until 8 pm and has every thing. Water is cheap here unlike other parts of Europe which is also a plus. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Starbucks, McDonald's, Burger King are also 15-20 min walk away. The hosts are friendly and very helpful.only disadvantage I see is that there is no lift and one apartment on each floor. We were on the 4 th floor. If you are senior citizen then it can be a bit of a hassle. For us it was an additional exercise.

This was our first hotel in a trip we made this year to Turkey. It was our second stay in Istambul, and we made sure we got the right location, in the smart side of Sultanahmet, near the mosques but avoiding the tourist crowds of the bosphorus side - and thats where the good things we have to say about Mataraci stop.
These are a few amateurishly ran studios, in a 5 storey dusty building - no lifts, steep stairs, so make sure you're able to climb those - with old furniture, uncomfortable baths. Prices are completely off the mark: you will be paying your location, but getting an overall bad deal. Photos dont show you what you will be getting (we booked through a reliable internet service and the pics there made this look like a nice place). Service is basically non existent - entry is through a jewellery shop, theres a guy taking care of the keys, and thats that. When we tried to book a car transfer to the airport, they offered us an option which was 20 euro more expensive than the hotel in front had posted in its windows (guess who got the deal). Water was cold at arrival - electric problem which we solved ourselves in day 2 (after reporting the problem and getting a visit from the guy with the keys, who couldnt solve the issue). Wireless internet meant "offline internet" (there had been some problem which lasted for 3 days). Even the TV, which we usually dont use, was a joke - good looking but not working at first, requiring the visit by the guy, again.
Avoid at all cost and go somewhere else.

Great location in Sultanahmet.

greeted by the friendly owners was a warm surprise.

they immediately made me feel right at home.
as small sign will let you know you are in the right place.
the bottom floor is a jewellery store and there are stairs that lead up to each apartment (each apartment has its own floor) ensuring the upmost privacy. the rooms are about 35 sqm and are lavishly decorated with plush curtains, bedding and a flat screen plasma, kitchen with oven, stove top, kettle and sink. a sofa and wardrobe are all in the open spaced one room which is divided by a heavy curtain . the bathroom is clean.

internet wireless- free ;)

i would certainly stay here again, because if of the fantastic customer service , location and apartment prices are well worth it
why pay for a small motel room when you can have a semi spacious apartment?

the hair dryer in my room did not work, i notified staff and within minutes i had one at my door ;) nice work!

seriously good location, motels, shops, cafes historical monuments!
look forward to coming back!!

Room Tip: ask for what you want..they are there to help!
