Minel hotel is a great place to stay if you’re on a budget. It offers fantastic value for money.
Location: It is located down a quiet side street just a 2 minute walk from the tram and only 5 minute’s walk from Topkapi Palace, the blue mosque etc. I stayed here for six nights alone (female) and felt very safe.
Staff: The staff are very kind and helpful, especially the housekeeper and Irfan who speaks brilliant English. Irfan generously let me use their phone for a few minutes to ring my family and he printed my ticket for Topkapi Palace.
Food: Free coffee and tea was on offer any time of the day downstairs and on the tables outdoors. I really looked forward to the breakfast each day as it was delicious with lots of different Turkish specialities.
Bedroom: My bedroom was small, but clean, functional and colourful and had decent air-conditioning. It had a spacious bathroom with a brilliant shower (plenty of hot water, good pressure, and decent size). I slept really well every night as the bed was not too hard and it had good bedding. The walls are quite thin so I did get some noise from next door and from the staircase - but not too bad.
This hotel represents fantastic value for money. I would happily stay there again and highly recommend it for people looking for a low cost, safe, clean and friendly place to stay.
