it is suitable for solo traveler ......the only things that i remember is good staff...but other factors are poor....Wall paper is peeling, carpet is moulting and is disintegrating as is everything in the room, creating dust...but the price of rooms are reasonable ....air conditioner of this hotel is good.

Walls paper thin, internet almost nonexistant unless you're place in one of the 4 rooms on the first floor, wallpaper peeling off the walls, had to open a window to cool the room, english spoken poorly by the staff, not prepared for credit cards, overpriced ($50 single).
Near a metro that takes you to most of the sites.

Birbey Hotel is not at all luxurious or impressive, still it was clean, quiet and warm (when we visitd Istanbul the temperture was very low and it was snowing, but in our room we could sleep naked!) and the personnel was helpful and cheerful, so I believe it was worth the 35 euros per night that we payed for our 1st floor double room. A very simple breakfast buffet was included in this price. It is situated near a tram station, only a few stops from Sultanahmet Place and near a metro station that leads straight to the airport. Next to the hotel you can find little stores that sell almost everything you might need during your stay and take away restaurants that sell the most delicious kebab for 1 euro and stay open after midnight (we always made a stop when returning late)

The condition of this hotel is worthy only of being condemned. No work has been done on it since it was built and everything is mouldy, mildewing, falling apart and barely functional. The lavatory cistern works but the top fall off when you lift the button. Wall paper is peeling, carpet is moulting and is disintegrating as is everything in the room, creating dust. Cleaning consists only of changing sheets and these are full of a smelly chemical. Only one short sheet covers the mattress which has black mould stains, water and blood stains, lumps and god knows what else. It is disgusting! I had a severe allergic reaction to something in the first room and the second night, the room they moved us to was so small we bruised our legs trying to get past the beds to the table. The TV was a joke in both rooms. No matter how cheap and it wasn't that cheap, as I stayed in far better for the same price in Izmir and Kusadasi, this hotel must be condemned and health authorities alerted.
It's saving grace is the bevy of very handsome, courteous young male staff who are on hand to do anything for you like bring hot water so we can at least make our own cup of tea rather than pay 2 lire for it. Service can't be faulted. They were lovely!
Breakfast is the usual Turkish style and hubby had to bring his own coffee, milk, muesli and orange juice. I didn't mind the olives, chilly fetta, tomatoes, cucumber, black coffee/tea and fresh bread.
