“Best spot for sightseeing”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

This hotel was in a fantastic spot for seeing all the main attractions in the old city. Easy walking distance to many sights. The tram was a few metres away and the ferries also. We had a superior room which had plenty of space and quiet . The bathroom was a bit on the small size. Breakfast was plentiful and the staff were very helpful. We were Ble to stay a bit later than normal checkout too. Would recommend to anyone visiting Istanbul.

Room Tip: Upper floor.

The location of this hotel was totally superb; right in the middle of things - everything was reachable with a short walk or a short taxi trip. The room was nice, and quite spacious with a nice bed and a long desk from where it was possible to work. Nice bathroom as well, but with a really narrow door to the shower. The hotel is non-alcohol but you can bring what you want the room. The wifi worked fine during my stay. Located close to cafes, restaurants and bars.

So we had to go to Istanbul and we were utterly confused with which hotel to choose... the problem being one of choice... as there are just tooooo many options and impossible to decide.

For some reason the Eurostars appealed to me and even though there were many other hotels in a similar price and a higher rating, I still went with my gut instinct and chose the Eurostars.

So here's my first hand experience...

The best thing about the hotel is the location, 5 mins walk to the Topkaki Palace and the Sultanahmet Square as well as the Blue Mosque.

The hotel is 2 mins away from the Eminonu Port so the ferrys are right next door to take you anywhere you wanna go in Istanbul, even the Bosphorous Tours start from here and incase you are interested in one then taken ONLY this one...

http://sehirhatlari.com.tr/en/timetable/short-circle-cruise-363.html

It costs 10 Lira for 2 hours which is about 5 USD. I saw people paying 40 Euros for similar tours elsewhere.

Coming back to the hotel... so the sightseeing is next door.... the ferry port 2 mins... the metro station less than a minute... the place is bustling at all times and there are many eating places everywhere you look. including one bang opposite the entry of the hotel serving yummy turkish food.

I saw a lot of reviews with people complaining that the rooms are small..... i took a Superior twin room and it came with a queen bed and a single and was perfect. My room was on the front side so it was fun watching the street. The room and the bathroom were both spotless and the size was big enough and perfect.

The best thing about the hotel is the staff... I would like to take a minute and specially thank both the managers on duty during our visit, they were always eager to help and had solutions for any issues we had, and these were not related to the hotel - travelling, fixing meetings, explaining people the way, where to eat, absolutely ANYTHING !

All in all... this hotel is highly recommended for tourists and business people alike !

I would always stay here, anytime I come to Istanbul, which will be often now !

Room Tip: A superior twin room on the front side of the hotel should do the trick !

A very very nice hotel, nice folk, very friendly and helpful. In an interesting part of the old city, in walking distance of attractions and near to many open-air eating establishments. The breakfast has an extensive range. Remember to buy water from street stalls - far cheaper. The hotel is near the railway station, tram (really light real) and the harbour. Hard to find initially from Ankara St, look for the red awnings on the upper windows of the hotel above the lolly shops. The entrance is from a non vehicular laneway. The trams are very dangerous in narrow Nobethane St - be really careful, and obey the pedestrian lights! The hotel is very clean and well lit on the outside. Would thoroughly recommend.

Excellent place to stay in Sultanahmet area, walking distance to all the old city attractions: Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazar, Galata Bridge etc. stayed for two nights last December. Great service by everyone in the hotel particularly Ali Riza at the front desk was very gracious and helpful with any information we needed. Breakfast was pretty good, particularly the Turkish soups they had in the morning...Rooms are little small but very clean with modern decor...

Stayed December 2013, traveled with family
