Perfect place to stay.
Management is very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Excellent service, good location, 2 min walk to the beach, close to tram station, close to Blue Mosque and Grand Bazzar. The room was specious and clean, bad comfortable. The area is safe and hotel is located in a very friendly neighbourhood.

Perfect place to stay, nicely sized rooms, Excellent service, good location, safe area to stay in, the local people are very welcoming and friendly! the hotel is very close to all the main tourist attractions! No problems at all, the owner and his family run the hotel, they are lovely people, very helpful. If I ever go back to Istanbul I will definitely be staying here again!

This Hotel cannot be called so, it is much more like a hostel. The room was extremely small, bathroom had no shower curtain and the staff was always smoking inside, spreading a horrible smell. Overpriced for the services offered.

We started looking for a place to stay in Istanbul a bit late, just 2 weeks or so before our arrival there, and we found this hostel to fit our budget with some difficulty (50 Eur/night/double).

LOCATION
Quiet area mainly with houses and 2 storey buildings, 15 min walk from tram station, around 30 min walk to Blue Mosque (if you know the fastest track), 20 min walk to Grand Bazzar.
.
The hostel was very difficult to find, no signs pointing to it, no sign outside the hostel to indicate there is a hostel there, but finally we managed to find it. We walked around an hour or so from the tram station to the hotel before being able to find it. It's true we didn't call the owner to ask for directions, that might have helped.
I want to mention that, I think most guesthouses in Istanbul are not easy to find as there a lot of cramped small streets. I wouldn't necessarily say this hostel is particularly difficult to find compared to all the other hostels; just the fact that it lacks any indicator outside the hostel gives you some extra trouble and adrenaline; but don't panic, you can always call the hotel for indications.

If you book at Rozin be careful to have its address and a city map with you.

The second night in the area a creepy guy followed us and kept bumping into us, from the hotel to the first restaurant we could escape to, you don't want to come across this guy. I don't really know what he had on his mind, but we were happy to lose him when we entered on of the restaurants in the streets

STAFF/OWNER
Owner was helpful when we asked his for something: helped us book the minibus to the airport, recommended us the area where to eat, but don't expect to be pampered.

ROOM
We got a triple room on first floor.Spacious room for our needs, a big drawer, table, minibar. The furniture and sheets were a bit old and worn, but I had a comfortable sleep nevertheless.

The first night we arrived it was quite chilly in the room, but the next few days as the weather got warmer the temperature in the room rose, so that wasn't a problem anymore.

The bathroom was the worse part, you have to wait a minute or two until the water gets hot enough to take a shower; and the bathroom itself is juts one big room with shower, toilet, sink, no separation between the shower and sink so if you're not careful you will get everything wet.

BREAKFAST
Buffet breakfast, typically Turkish things on the menu, but the cheapest options on the market (fake honey, fake jam which tasted of artificial flavoring, some cheese and olives, etc.. no fruits). They should really improve breakfast, the quality of the things they have.

All in all it wasn't the most memorable and pleasant stay, mainly because I was expecting a lot more of this price.
Had we payed 30 Eur for the room there would be no reason to complain, but given that we payed 50 Eur/night I find it extremely pricey for what they offer; for the same price you can get better service in Istanbul.

I would hesitate staying there again.
Beside the fact that is located in Sultanahmet I can find no good point for recommending it.
But, if you can find no other place fitting your budget and you're not picky I guess Rozin Hotel is an option that is not the worse.

We ended up at the Rozin Hotel by accident when the hotel we had booked through booking.com turned us away (another story...see my review of Indo Hotel). The room was cozy and breakfast was good and varied. The staff was extremely helpful. There was only vacancy for two of the three nights we were staying in Istanbul, and although the hotel was full, the older brother helped us to locate another hotel at the same price. He even accompanied us to the new hotel and helped us check-in. If you are looking for an inexpensive hotel in Istanbul with a "homey" feeling, this is the place to go.

We stayd 3 nights at this hotel, first of all it's hard to find and if it wasn't for the old woman, their neighbour which was chilling in the window next door, we would not have found it so quick. We stayd on top floor in a terrible room, no window, no AC, no heat/owen and in the bathroom it was open trough the roof! The toilet did not have anything on the top to flush with and the room was really small. After 2 nights from freezing we finally got a room in the basement wich was better but not so nice. Saw into other rooms and they looked nice. Breakfast was good and the reception guys also.

We found this Hotel by chance on Bookings.com and I must say we struck gold; It was inexpensive, very clean and warm; Wi-Fi, TV, hairdryers, you name it they have it; Run by two wonderful brothers and supported by their family members that somehow transforms the hotel into your home from home; For us English was spoken and understood and I believe they speak other languages also; We were treated as greater family but in a professional and respectful manner jointly; All requests for information and assistance during our stay were addressed promptly and completely; if you require a well located and friendly locale for your hotel in Istanbul then surely you need not pay more or seek any other; We both would greatly recommend this hotel unreservedly and truly look forward to the next time we are able to return there.
