“Very well located!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

We stayed at this boutique hotel for 4 nights. The location is excellent, walking distance from all the major attractions and restaurants. The room was very clean, but a bit tiny. The birds/gulls noise outside our window woke us up early one morning, but we soon got used to it. Breakfast was fine. The staff is very couteous and helpful. I misplaced my iPhone charger and asked the front desk if any of them had one I could borrow. One of them had a cable and was nice enough to lend it to us for as long as we needed it. I would go back and and stay there.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the main street are noisier because of the birds.

Stayed here for one night. Was fine for what we wanted: a clean place to sleep after a long day of seeing the sights. Was clean, staff was friendly, free wifi, good TV. The beds were comfortable and big. The breakfast was fine in the morning. Nothing amazing but again provided enough fuel for the day. It is in a solid location, close to the mosques and government building. Not far from the port where you can do a cruise. Overall, if you are just going to sleep in the hotel and do not care about all the extra’s, given the price, this was a very solid hotel and would recommend it for a tourist trip to Istanbul.

Good location - that is where it ends.

Staff is all out to rip you. Construction work is on with drill machines ripping thru your room for four hours a day and management threatens you to shut up if you want your good. Breakfast is very poor quality with no hot food. People walk into your rooms when they want. Families are not secure there.

I stayed at this hotel for one night when I visited Istanbul for 7 days last March. I actually stayed at three different hotels due to schedule mix-up and an overbooking (which was the other hotel's fault anyways) so I think I have a fair comparison to make among the three.

First of all, the location of this hotel is just superb; cannot get better than this. It's just minutes' walk from the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia. It's literally just a minute away from the main street which has all the restaurants and tourist attractions. You can also walk to the Grand Bazaar fairly easily. The other hotels I stayed were fairly close to this strip but it was still about 10 minutes walk.

I was also impressed with the size of the room and the cleanliness. I think hotels in Istanbul are just generally small and has really small bathrooms; compared to the other hotels I had stayed, this was pretty sizable and roomy. It was super clean too. I was also happy with how friendly the staff were. Some of them had a hard time understanding English but as long as you slow down and use gesture, it's pretty easy to communicate with them. My flight was at 10 o'clock in the morning and I had to leave to the airport at 6:30am, which was before the breakfast buffet started. They called me that the breakfast buffet was ready, and when I said it's ok, they offered me to deliver the food to my room. They didn't have to but I thought it was super nice of them.

The rates weren't that bad either. I paid about $80 for the night; I think the value for the money was really good.

Overall, I highly recommend this hotel. I'd stay at this place again if I have the chance to visit Istanbul again.

We were very happy with this choice and would recommend it to any familly.
The rooms are quite lovely. Location (old city), facilities, atmosphere, staff and food were very good quality, we simply could not have asked for a more enjoyable holiday with our kids. Staff are always there willing to help and always have a smile on their faces.
I thoroughly recommend Ayasultan hotel to anyone .
