We stayed three nights in May 2012, the staff is very very kind, helpful and careful in every situation, hotel is clean, the furniture is plain but comfortable. Breakfast is various and good and fresh. The hotel is just 1 minute by feet from the Blue Mosque and the area where it's located is very quite and safe.

We have just returned from a 3 day stay at this charming hotel. On a quiet turning just a few minutes walk down hill from the bustling Arasta Bazaar and Blue Mosque, it provided the ideal cool, peaceful, retreat from the heat of the afternoon, before venturing out for our evening meal at one of the roof top restaurants nearby (we recommend Turquoise or Ocean 7 with authentic Turkish food and fabulous view of the moon rising over the sea).
Good breakfasts in shady, leafy patio. Clean, comfortable and with friendly, helpful staff. The family room was perfect for the three of us, with a spare bed for extra space, and two chairs and table. Would definitely stay in this hotel again if we return to Istanbul.

this hotel met all of our needs as a family. Demet in reception was so helpful and friendly. in fact all the staff were wonderful. the wifi access was fabulous. the location was the best we could have hoped for. situated a short walk from all the major sights and surrounded by cafes and restaurants. the nearby train was hardly noticible. we chose to come back to this hotel after our trip around Turkey. loved it. thanks Demet and boys.

Last weekend, on the 3rd week of May 2012, I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. It was very clean first of all, and the hospitality by the hotel stuff made my stay so pleasant. The only thing I found a bit annoying was the sound of trains, but it was just once in a while and does not stop me going back to the this hotel when I should visit the city once again. I enjoyed a ocean view from the room, as well as very good access to all tourist favorite spots in the area. I would like to thank the hotel for making my trip to Istanbul very comfortable.

Stayed for a week in May 2012. Hotel is set back from road at end of quiet street. It is very well situated for visiting the main places of interest. The Blue Mosque is literally at the top of the street and has spectacular views after dark .
Our room was small but immaculately furnished and very clean. There was train noise but it did not cause any significant disturbance as we were on a higher floor.
The staff were very friendly & helpful throughout our stay and the breakfast buffet was of a high standard .
We would definitely stay here again.

We were a group of friends from the University of Oslo, "The medieval seminar", that came to Istanbul to visit Byzantine monuments. On behalf of the whole group I would like to express my gratitude to the staff of the Hotel Historia who were very friendly and helpful, and contributed to make our stay a very pleasant one. It is a great pleasure to recommend this hotel, at the end of a quiet street, close to important monuments. The breakfast was rich. Whenever we needed assistance the staff was helpful. It is the ideal place for those who come to experience this exciting city and need some relaxation after a busy day.

I stayed in the hotel in May 2012, while traveling with friends. I can particularly note the friendliness of staff, also a very positive aspect is it's convenient location. Our room had a beautiful sea view and was very clean; I cannot say that the train noise mentioned in other reviews where disturbing for us. I would stay there again.
