“Great place, location...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

Great stay at Aprilis Hotel in heart of old Istanbul... easy walking distance to everything (one block to tram line if needed)... courteous, attentive staff, especially Ercan at reception (who even provided evening tea)... free wi-fi, delicious breakfast buffet included... rooms small, but always clean, comfortable, new baths... airport pickup... not over luxury, but great place, great location. Easy to recommend.

Room Tip: Interior rooms do not have windows, some windows face street (yes, some noise)... be sure to ask for...

We had a wonderful stay at the Aprilis Hotel. Perfect location. Easy walking distance to everything. Free wifi. Breakfast included. Clean bedrooms and newly renovated baths. Polite staff; thanks to Oktay Enes. We arranged to be picked up at the airport which made our arrival very easy and taken back to the airport. I would recommend this hotel to any of our friends. The only downside, if you get a room on the street it is noisey. And inside rooms do not have any windows.

I liked Aprilis Hotel a lot. The main thing: it is in the center of the old city! You can walk easily to see the monuments, Grand Bazar and so on. Nice stuff. The breakfast could change more; all mornings were the same, but the food was nice. The street where the hotel is located is very narrow, and the hall in the reception is a little small, but these are just details. The man responsible for take care of breakfast is very gently, even with a little english. It is not super luxe hotel, but is very comfortable and the room was very beautiful! It's like 3 stars plus plus!****

Location is near the Grand Bazaar so this is a big plus for travelers. It is also walking distance from the train station so everything is accessible. Also near Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, etc. We stayed here for 3 nights for business/pleasure.

Hotel was clean, looks new. Free wifi everywhere. The room we had was spacious for three. Nice clean beds and bathroom. Nice interiors on the room. Though the flush on the toilet wasn't working. We had to call room service twice for it. I was amazed how fast their service was. I think I was still speaking to the hotel operator when the staff already arrived to fix the toilet. lol. Staff was very attentive to needs. Although one of the hotel lobby attendant is a bit snobbish.

Didn't like the buffet breakfast. All the same for the 3 days we were there. Slow elevator also. Had to take the stairs most of the time.

Overall nice hotel.

The Aprilis Hotel is a very ideal and comfortable hotel, it is located near many tourist attractions and has a very nice breakfast buffet (food is free). The staff are very helpful and are dedicated to serving you. The rooms are clean, nice, and comfortable. They are very good and suited to any type of trip, such as family trip, business trip, even a honeymoon! Overall, this hotel is a very excellent hotel and I recommend choosing to stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Best hotel in Istanbul!
