The hotel is at a very convenient location and is cheap related to other nearby hotels. What you get is a clean room and staff willing to help you. However the standard room is small and in May that we visited the room was very hot, but the air conditioning was not functioning in all the hotel.

My guest stayed in this hotel for the third time due its good, central, secure location. They have been charged 60 Eur per room which is not an inexpensive price compared to TL. For this charge, plus the repeat stay I was expecting more hospitality from the hotel in terms of the room provided. Having seen the room size, I have been ashamed. It was as small as a bird nest, not convenient at all to move for 2 adults. The bed had been pushed to the wall, one can only get off from the left side of the bed. There has been a small window opening to the inside of the building which was claustrophobic. Such room should have been sold at much lower price or not sold at all. It deserves to be a depot. Look for other available hotels in same area.

We stayed at Troya hotel for 4nights. Our room was located on the 2nd floor (non smoking floor). Room was very clean and we had clean towels everyday. Breakfast was really good and had a nice variety (Combines both Turkish and Interantional foods)
Hotel is located 2minutes away from Istiklal cad., 10 min. from Taxim square and Galata Tower (2 different directions). Location is very good and safe.

Staff is friendly and they are always available to give you any information/guideline about timetables, tours, city highlights etc

Hotel has an internet corner with 2 computers free of charge for all clients

Good value for money.

Highly recommended as a clean, safe, budget hotel

an inexpensive hotel located in the center of Istanbul, very close to the exotic Beyoglu street and the Golden Horn just at your feet. the lobby is nice and modern, the staff specially those at the reservation, cool helpful and friendly. the size of the rooms is good comparing to what you find in Europe. the rooms are definitely in need of restoration but tolerable at the moment. bath suffers the same problem. however the rooms are clean and odorless i shall state.
the breakfast is lovely and quite diverse for the price you pay and you can serve yourself with the Boreks. i saw families with the kids at the breakfast and made me decide to bring the family next time.
i have been to Hilton and Marmara and some 4 stars in Istanbul but this one definitely worth the money you pay.

I stayed at the Troya for a week (attending a conference) and found it a really easy place to be. I'm female, getting on, not necessarily keen on walking around some places on my own. But the location was good, not at all threatening, and close to Istiklal Cad, Taksim with all its buses, within walking distance of the Galata Bridge, lots of ATMs, loads of fantastic restaurants etc. The Hotel staff were helpful and friendly, and the breakfast excellent. My room was ordinary, but it was also cheap and I could open the window for fresh air if I wanted to. The Troya was very good value and I'd stay there again.

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights during my trip to Istanbul. This place was recommended by a friend of mine and I must say that I was very happy with it. It was located in the centre of Istanbul, very close to shops and restaurants. OK, so the room was very average, but this is a budget hotel, so if you expect luxury, you should stay at 5 star hotel, where you will pay 5 times the price.

I found staff helpful and polite.

There are two computers in the reception area that can be used for free.

Breakfast was good with plenty of choice of food, including fresh food.

I would cestainly stay at this hotel again.

We stayed in Istanbul for 3 days before venturing to Icmeler for a beach holiday. Although we liked the City we couldn't have picked a poorer hotel. It is very basic, dirty and the location is really rough. Although close to Taksim it is situated in a filthy, seedy backstreet strewn with beggars and drunks who are laying in their own vomit and other bodily functions. Not a pleasant site, especially when you have two small children. The area felt very unsafe.
The staff are pleasant enough but the hotel is dirty and the noise from the street below is unbearable. I did not sleep a wink during the 3 days we stayed.
Poor breakfast, even as lovers of Turkish food we were pushed to find anything edible.
Avoid this hotel, it is dire
