stayed 3 nights at the tail end of 2 week holiday at Angels Home.
Cozy little place in the Heart of SultanKahmet area of old Istanbul. Great location close to the blue mosque, Topkapi Palace, Hippodrome Square, Sophia, etc and walking distance from the Grand Bazaar and Spice Market.
Rooms were clean and quite new. Stairs only, but the staff were helpful in moving our 3 large suitcases up/down the room. Decent breakfast on rooftop where there is a great view of the Bosphorous and areas of Istanbul. Room, bathroom, etc were all very clean. Staff helpful and friendly.
Istanbul is a rather large city, and this was out first trip there, so decided to stay in one of the more popular tourist areas such as Sultankahmet. Hard to say how Angels compares to other in area, but we would stay there again if we visit Istanbul's Sultankahmet area. If looking to stay in a newer part of Istanbul, probably will look to Taksim area, but that is a different proposition.
The main sights people visit in Istanbul are the places listed above, so Angel's is a perfect location for that.
Keep in mind though.....it is a tourist area, so you will find heaps of other hotels as well as the expected tourists associated. It also means lots of restos and stores geared to selling to visitors instead of locals.
All in all, a good time and highly recommend Angels Home as a place for people to stay.
