“Warmest attitude in the cosy hotel in the very centre!”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 via mobile

What I want to say is,that there are many nice hotels,but it is so rare when owners treat their clients so warmly and sincerely as in Coliseum hotel! This hotel is a perfect example of a small private hotel: cosy, comfortable, with good breakfasts, in a very centre and with such warmest atmosphere,that u really feel like home and want to come back again. Thanks a lot! Well done!

We stayed five nights with two other families. The location is very good, the staff friendly, the rooms are small but very clean, the breakfast was ok. And we spent every evening on the terrace planning the next day.
Thank you, again!

Lovely small hotel right on the doorstep of all the main must see sights of Sultanahment. The management and staff were excellent, warm and friendly. They saw to all our needs and offered excellent advice regarding the area. They also had great senses of humour and provided many a laugh, especially Salih and Mehmet. The hotel was exceptionally clean and the fixtures and fittings fine. The rooms, unless you book a triple, were a little on the small side but that kind of suited the cosiness of the place. Like many places in this city, traffic noise could be a little disturbing but that didn't bother us.
If you want somewhere that is good value for money and centrally located to all the famous monuments and facilities of the old city, this is an ideal place to stay.

Room Tip: Choose a triple bedder if you want a little more space.

We stayed two nights and its possibly the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed in. The owner Mehmet, along with his wife and staff, set an example in how a hotel should be run. Their attention to detail is a joy to see, and all delivered with warmth and a friendly smile.

The location is excellent, just a few minutes walk from all the main sights, with some superb restaurants within 500 metres. The airport is 30 minutes away.

The rooftop terrace, offers peace and tranquillity, with great views across the rooftops of the city and the bay.

this hotel should be used for staff training everywhere. amazing welcome- mehmet is an excellent host and manager. little details like free tea coffee constantly being offered, genuine conversation and interest in people. I have stayed in 100s of hotels this is the first time I felt compelled to review.

Very nice small hotel in Sultan Ahmet area. Staff is very helpful and friendly to tourists - main personnel representatives are english-speaking and they will help you with enquiries in terms of navigating around elsewhere in Istanbul. Highly recommend for groups of friends or couples. But bear in mind, room space is not big as in many world capitals.
