“Very good stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

Had a great short break here at the Avicenna hotel. The location is excellent - nearby to the Blue Mosque in the old city, great location to access the sites. The service was polite and efficient, front of house staff helpful. The rooms were clean and everything you would expect. Breakfast was varied and authentic. All round a very pleasant and enjoyable stay.

My husband and I stayed here last week 11th-15th March. We loved the hotel and the staff were very helpful and without being pushy gave us a few tips on local knowledge. The best thing we did was to book a full day trip with She Tours via the hotel for the very next morning (although we didn't really fancy an early start having just had one to get there!). Well worth doing it the first day though. The guide was great and we had a very full and enjoyable day, seeing many sights and even spending a couple of hours going up and down the Bosphorus which enabled us to orientate ourselves in this amazing city. 08:30-17:00 We thought it was excellent value for 70euros each as included a very nice lunch! We then mooched for the next few days with a good idea of what to see and when and where. We came at a good time as although cool weather, it was perfect for sightseeing and the sun was shining. We didn't eat at the rooftop restaurant as although it looked lovely it was so quiet and nobody else was there. Too early in the season I quess, but we did sit out on the little terrace balcony there and enjoy a glass of beer (or two)looking out to sea and the views were fantastic. The staff were all really polite and friendly and that goes for all the places we went to in Istanbul.
Our breakfasts were always good, and the hotel is really the prettiest little place inside and out, on a lovely cobbled street. Our room was very clean, the beds -(twin) comfy and the shower was very good, water hot enough without fiddling about with dials & knobs (room 213). We ate locally and although great food, it is more expensive than other parts of Istanbul-but then it is easy to get back to the Hotel. Try Babylonia Garden Restaurant and also the Kybele which is a little more of a walk but worth it. They all are aware of Trip Advisor!

Apart from the room size (slightly on the smaller end) everything else was excellent. The location is brilliant as it's right at the heart of main tourist attractions. The rooms were cleaned and covers/towels replaced everyday without fail. The staff were really friendly and helpful from the start of the stay and the surprise birthday cake for a friend was the icing on the cake! Overall I would highly recommend

My husband and I have just returned from Istanbul where we stayed at this lovely hotel. Everything about the hotel is great.
The location - the Blue Mosque together with other attractions is literally at the top of the road.
The breakfasts - set you up for a days site seeing.
The rooms - were exactly as they appear on the website - well decorated and cosy.
The Staff - were quite simply delightful.

Another added bonus is the hotel restaurant. We ate there one evening and had a really nice meal - it also provides great views of the Bosphorus!

We would love to go back to this amazing city and lovely hotel.

Room Tip: Our room number was 208 which looked out on to the little cobbled street - delightful.

Stayed at this Hotel 7th-11th March 2014. Staff very helpful. Room very good, we had a front view with a balcony (unfortunately could make use of the balcony due to the weather - it never stopped raining, but that was something the hotel had no control over). Very central to the sights. Ate 2 out of our 4 nights in the hotel and the food was very good, however not many other people eating in resturant so a little quiet.Very firm bed. Would certainly recommend this hotel to friends and family.
