“Most friendly hotel in Istanbul”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

Rumours Inn is located just a 5 min walk from the Blue Mosque, near the Hippodrome. The hotel is relatively new and is very clean and modern.

The interior is really well designed and laid out. Very hipster, industrial design. We had a room for 3 people and it was extremely spacious. Was not crowded one bit.

The staff is really what sets this hotel apart. They are extremely helpful and friendly. Happy to recommend places to eat that they themselves would frequent. All of the recommendations turned out great. They were very genuine and interested in helping you out. We stayed at a different hotel in Istanbul on our trip, and we really wished we had stuck with Rumours Inn!

Would definitely stay here again on our next visit!

The hotel staff was incredibly friendly, answering all I our questions and giving us good recommendations. It was about a five minute walk from the blue mosque and the Hagia Sophia. The breakfast was nice every morning and the cleaning ladies always added special little touches (towels folded like swans, etc.). If I went back I would definitely stay there again.

We stayed in this hotel for three nights. Everything was perfect. The staff were very friendly all the time, they gave us all information we needed, they were very helpful. The room was big enough with a balcony, from there we had beautiful views of the nearby mosque and in the background Sea of Marmara. It was very clean, also the bathroom, where they regularly changed towels. The hotel is located close to the major sights. Breakfast was good. We will return!

This hotel is THE perfect example of hospitality. The staff is friendly and extremely helpful. To provide you with a pleasant stay seems to be their main objective. The room was small, but suitable for the price, and furnished in a fashionable manner. The hotel itself is located perfectly just across the corner of all the main highlights of the city. It's clean, and well maintained. There is a fridge with some drinks for very reasonable prices. Breakfast was good, and even being late was no problem which I appreciated very much!! Thanks for the great stay, and definitely an option to come back next time!!!

My husband and I stayed for 6 nights in October 2013. Having booked through booking.com, we were allocated the smallest hotel room we've ever been in. The staff changed it the next day to a beautiful room with a balcony overlooking the sea. Having checked our original booking, it seems that the small room was allocated by booking.com as a deluxe room. Be aware.
The breakfast is basic but fine. I would stay at Rumours again but would check more carefully about the accommodation. Rumours inn is ideally placed and has a really laid back feel which is appreciated on holiday.

Room Tip: Not all deluxe rooms are of an acceptable size.

This hotel it in a great location just 2 blocks from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace. The rooms are small with no desk or TV, but the beds are great, the bathrooms are very good and the breakfast is wonderful. The staff are extremely helpful.

If you just want a place to sleep in a great location, this is for you. If you are going to spend more time in the room, this might not be the place for you.

We found Rumours Inn through Booking.com: rating 9,2/10 "Excellent" and very good prices (40 euros per night a doubleroom).
We are very happy for the choice: location is perfect, 2 minutes walking (really 2!) from Hyppodrome and Blue Mosque. TramWay station Sultanhamet is 3 minutes walking.
Staff has been very nice, continuously helping with hints and tips for sigthseeing and transportaion and meals.
The hotel seems to have been recently refurbished and decorated, in a very nice and young style.
Rooms are small and furniture inside is really essential.
Lobby and common areas are very nice. Breakfast is good and in a nice ambient.
