“Barin Hotel Istanbul - Clean and functional”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

You wouldn't pick this hotel for a luxury break - this is not a boutique hotel - but it doesn't charge boutique hote price either. But if you are pasing through Istanbul, as we were, it delivers a clean, quite comfortable room at a reasonable price. Beds comfortable, plumbinbg, slightly odd (fluctuating water pressure/temperature), breakfast ok, service desk ok. We booked through an agency which didn't pass mon our request for a twin room for our boys - but the hotel quickly addressed this when we discussed it with them. Situation is quite convenient - 2 minutes walk to the tram stop - with 2 stops to the Blue Mosque, and less than 10 minutes walk to the Grand Bazaar.

Room Tip: The lift is very small - so pick a lower floor room and walk up

Barin hotel is a great place to stay. Close to the Grabd Bazaar, ysou can take the tram, but also walk - it takes some 10 minutes. Rooms clean, breakfast good. Hotel personnel very nice and helpful. We stayed there for three nights.

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking at the street. Corner rooms are the best, even have a small balcony.

We found the bar/reception area steril - no TV, no atmosphere. I mean the place was fine, but very ordinary. I suppose that's enough. No complaints - it's clean; the front desk people tried to be helpful; the rooms are standard. The breakfast is regular European style.

The location is pretty good for the major attractions. They will set up any tours for you that you may want. The tram is a few blocks away which is good for getting around.

There are plenty of good restaurants in the area.

Overall we were satisfied.

We had the misfortune of having our passports stolen in Istanbul and moved to this Hotel as our tour group was returning home the next day and our previous hotel did not have availability for us. The hotel, staff and food was excellent. We had to stay for another week until we received a temporary passport to return home. The staff helped me set up gmail so that I could communicate back home in Canada and talk with our government to try it get our passport process expeditated. Each day they inquired as to how we were doing and gave us directions on how to get around the city. the rooms were very clean and the cleaning staff talked to us like family.
When we finally got our temporary passports, the tour company did not arrange for our flight home as promised and the the Hotel manager arranged to look up direct flights for us to return.
The staff gave us suggestions as to places to eat and were very reasonalble. I would certainly recommmend this Hotel to anyone staying in Istanbul and it is centrally located within walking distances of several attractions. Great value and amazing staff.

The hotel was just about 15 minutes walk from the Old Town attractions like the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace and 5 minutes away from the Grand Bazaar. We took a package tour with our national airline, Air Malta and paid just under 400 euros each for flight and 7 nights on Bed & Breakfast basis. The room allotted was 109 just one floor above the restaurant. In my opinion I did not find the breakfast very exciting. I would have preferred more fresh fruit. The coffee was lousy. The aircondition unit was not very efficient and the WiFi connection quite weak.
I would have preferred to stay in a hotel closer to the Old Town.

Room Tip: We had room 109 and it was very quiet.

This hotel fills the basic needs of a traveller, though there's nothing special or extra to it. The location is a bit far for walking to the top tourist sites, but the area itself is a lot more peaceful than, say, Sultanahmet district. The room we stayed in was very small and the walls were quite thin - I used earplugs so no problem with that at night... The room was kept clean very nicely. AC did not work at all, or we couldn't figure out how to use it. Wi-fi a bit weak and unstable. Average breakfast. The staff was friendly and helpful. Next time in Istanbul we'll stay in another hotel, but if I hear that a friend of mine has booked this hotel I'll tell him: "It's ok".

Room Tip: Rooms at the end of corridors are more spacious. Corner rooms facing the junction of street are most...
