“one of the best hotel to stay in istanbul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

My wife and I spent 2 nights at this wonderful hotel in Sirkeci. The room was elegant, modern, and very clean. Staff was very friendly, welcoming, and informative. We were treated very well and got loads of guidance and insider tips for our 3 days and 2 nights in Istanbul. The hotel did not only impress us with its rooms and personnel, but also offered a great cafe serving delicious Turkish breakfast, .

On top of everything, however, I would recommend and go back to this hotel for its perfect location. We only had to walk minutes to the Old City (Sultanahmet) and visit the historic sights such as Haggia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi, Yerebatan Sarnic, Grand Bazar and Epyptian Bazar. On the other hand we were also very close to the beautiful Galata Tower, again just a twenty minutes away, . We visited Istanbul a several times, but no hotel was a well-located as this one.

Definitely great value for price and a guaranteed perfect experience!! :)

When I first booked this hotel, there was no tripadvisor listing for it so I was a bit weary. I even emailed the hotel to make sure it existed. There was a reason why there was no listing: it JUST opened a few months ago. Yay, clean rooms!

The hotel is bit hard to find if you are coming from the airport via tram in the middle of the night! So, if you're taking the tram: get off at Sirkeci station and look for Hafiz Mustafa (dessert place) across the street. The hotel shares the building with Hafiz and Koska (another dessert place), and you'll find the hotel entrance literally right behind Hafiz in the alley. We had no idea the entrance was in the alley and ended up walking a four-block radius trying to find the place!

The front desk staff is very friendly and attentive. The hotel is clean and the continental breakfast is good. I agree with the other reviewers that the hotel rooms are very small, however, we paid the best rate available online so I'm sure that's the reason why. Had we paid more, we might have gotten some of the larger rooms. It was adequate for two people though. The only reason I didn't give five-stars is because it would've been nice if the rooms had thicker windows. Depending on where your room is situation, you can hear everything that goes on outside. This is nothing that earplugs can't fix though.

The location is SO perfect! Literally a 5-10min walk from the Galata Bridge; 15-20min walk from Topkapi/Hagia Sophia/Blue Mosque; 10min to Egyptian Spice Bazaar; 20-25 to Sulemaniye; 25-30 to Grand Bazaar. I'm sure you can tell we walked everywhere. :) You can also walk 5mins to the ferry terminals and catch a ferry ride to Kadikoy on the Asian side for a fun afternoon (only costs 3TL one-way).

All-in-all, this is a great hotel with a wonderful staff. I'd recommend it.

The staff was really great they helped us from the moment we entered hotel till the end of our stay there. They were very polite and friendly and always with a smile on their faces. Hotel it self is located in a great position, just a minute of walk from Sirkaci train and tramway station and under 10 minutes walk from Grand Baazar and Hagia Sofia.There are also many very nice street shops that offer food at really low prices around the Hotel and there is a shop with famous turkish sweets and baklava that works 24/7 in the same building as the Hotel. The rooms are very nice, modern with good design and very clean and above all you get fresh towels every day and free coffe,water and tea for refresment. All in all its a great value for price and I will definitely stay at this hotel again when I come back to Istanbul. The only minus goes to breakfast that lacked a bit more different types of dishes such as scrambled or fried eggs.

We have just returned from 6 days in wonderful Istanbul. We looked at many hotels in the area and with the help of trip advisor and bookings.com we decided Eurostars would be the best one for us because of its excellent location. We cannot praise the hotel enough for the quality of the very modern rooms, the good selection of breakfast and the professionalism of Osman and his colleagues, they couldn't enough for you. This was our first trip to Istanbul and we will definitely be back and will stay at this hotel again.

I booked a connecting 2 rooms for my family.

Upon arrival, we waited 5 minutes in the lobby for the rooms to be ready. Tis is normal. Unfortunately, the rooms where not clean when we took them. The first shock was that they are too small. Not sufficient space for clothes. Not even seating are. In both rooms there is only one chair. The minibar had used drinks!
The coffee tray was dirty and had cups with left over drinks and even cigarette ashes! Even though the rooms are non smoking rooms!

We had to take turns to walk between beds as there is not enough space for 2 people to cross. The only good point is the excellent location.

Room Tip: See the room before check in as there are some nicer ones than the ones I took!

Good location to all main historical places, friendly staff, near tram station Sirkichi (can get from and ti airport by your self). Breakfast - same as all over the world, but automats' coffee I wouldn't recommended too. Clean rooms, all baths stuff are provided. Near the hotel great shop of turkish delight Koska, we recommended it also.

Spent a 5 day perfect stay in this hotel and loved it. Everything was great, it has a fantastic location and rooms are new and spotless clean. Breakfast has nice variety. Our price to value ratio was absolutely great. I would recommend this brand new shining hotel to anyone.
