“Wonderful experience!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We were in Istanbul in March to attend the Istanbul Tango Festival. Our group of 7 had many different requirements (therefore many, many changes) and Lale and Kerem went all the way out to ensure that the rooms fit our needs. Lale even travelled to the Tango organising office which was across the bridge, to ensure that she could give us directions on how to get there when we arrived in Istanbul. Kerem walked us to the top of the road to show us directions to the money changer in spite of him being disturbed during his breakfast! Both of them were what make the hotel super special. But it would be good if the night reception staff have better knowlege of English.
Modern necessities in a beautifully restored building (though climbing the stairs to the lobby with heavy luggages was a strain!). Loved the rooftop terrace; very romantic. Wonderful view of the main attractions. We wished we could tangoed more into the night - but it was cold then!!!
Breakfast was fresh; service good. Great place! Would love to stay there again!

The hotel - despite the nice webpage - was not impressive. A good location closed to the Istiklal Caddesi. Our room was quite sticky, overlooking an internal courtyard with view to other rooms.
Altough we asked for a quiet room, we were located at the 4th floor (kindly, try to avoid room there): i.e. we could hardly sleep due people walking in the bar ont he 5th floor late night and starting preparing breakfast in the morning. The terrace however is nice and the breakfast offer was rich and tasty. The personal is inexperienced and not really supportive.

Room Tip: Do not chose rooms at the 4th floor.

Pros: The room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The building was beautiful, the terrace had a great view over the old city and the breakfast was great (including the waiters who were very helpful, even when we turned up too late for breakfast!) The location was amazing, right in the centre.

Cons: The suite we were in was very sparsely furnished, with no rug or cushions or a comfortable seat to relax on (only a wooden bench against the wall). This also made the lack of decorations on the walls even more striking, especially as nails had been put into the walls and just stuck out with nothing on it! Several lamps in the room also didn't work, all little things but added together, it made it look like the room was only half finished, and that the hotel had either run out of money or motivation halfway through decorating it... For the price of the room, it was a little disappointing.

The Adahan hotel is a very special place. I normally do not write any reviews - but this place deserves it. The moment you enter this carefully restored old bulling your nose is on vacation. It smells beautifully from handmade soaps. The stuff is extremely friendly - maybe their english needs some improvement - but if you need any help - there is always Lale and her husband. They are eager to assist and they have many very good tips.
Our room was very light and after we changed it - very quiet :-)
The terrace is just the perfect place to relax after a long day of walking - take a drink and enjoy the view - no need to climb up the Galata tower...
This little germ makes you feel home far away from home. We will come back.

Room Tip: Take a room on an upper level - and to the backstreet.

A great location, very charming place, beautifully restored by the architect owners. The roof top has fabulous views and the breakfast is very diverse. Such a nice place would deserve a professional and motivated service too. Unfortunately, the staff hardly understands any english, or other language than turkish, which makes the contacts complicated. Just book your room directly with the hotel, to handle a booking from a booking platform with the staff is a hassle. The stay in this wonderful place was somewhat disturbed by little things like: no espresso in the morning (although machine is there but the staff doesn't know how to use it?), phone calls from the reception in the middle of the night because they mixed up the room numbers, only one set of towels in a double room...if you want to come here, expect the most beautiful youth hostel you know, and not a 4 stars hotel, so you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: don't tale a standard room, they are very small and have no window to the exterior (covered inne...

When we booked Adahan for a holiday last summer, I was worried by the lack of Tripadvisor reviews but decided to take a chance on it and we couldn't be happier with our decision. It deserves a top rating across the board. Slightly hard to find but beautifully located in the heart of Asmali Mescit. The building itself is gorgeously restored and not enough can be said about the terrace and the view from it. I can't believe this place wasn't more popular but am sure that will change soon - this is the kind of property that has people returning for more.
