Good position for sight seeing, staff very helpful. Carpets in rooms and common ways very marked and stained. Rooms small and damp. Shower leaked and rotted the wood surround thus resulting in a nasty smell. Air conditioning/heating had a mind of its own and switched itself on. Room could get very hot and stuffy. Good selection at the breakfast buffet but as so often poor quality meats with little or no taste. For a few days stay adequate but not the best.

I have been there in October for one week. The hotel staff showed real hospitality and really very helpful. The room I stayed met my expectations. The food was excellent in taste and variety. I offer this hotel to the ones especially to go for touristic reasons since its location is in theold istanbul area. Easy to reach the historical sites and Grand Bazaar.

I stayed there three days with family. Evereything was excellent. Located in the vicinity of old istanbul. Easy to reach other sites. Food was okay. The staff was very helpful. I may not agree the remarks made in an unconstructure way. In a place located on the center it is normal that you should not expect more.
The area is a little bit crowded. I advice to the ones especilally go on a visit to the historical sites in the old istanbul.

I arrived today from Istanbul. I walked approx. 10 Km a day and, being very tired, I was not allowed to sleep even a full night in three. The night of the arrival a group of people were singing very loudly in the lobby. The receptionist did not bother to stop them. Since then, every night between 2 and 4 am, we had people speaking, shouting, singing and whistling on the corridor, in front of the rooms. Because the hotel has an inner space that connects all floors I can imagine that I was not the only one up.

Hotel Klas claims to be a 4 star hotel. The rooms are really small, and the bathroom, especially the bath, is unbelievably tiny. You must be an expert acrobat to get in an out of the bath/shower, or whatever you wish to call the little uncomfortable space they call a bath. (because it is true I copied from another comment)

Air cond in the room: good.

Shower: very strong pressure.

Breakfast normal.

Cleanness: very good. We and other friends left an expensive phone and other stuff in the room and nothing was taken away. Good.

WiFi in the lobby and in the room: free, not good but probably in line with what is normal in the area.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.

The hotel staff are very welcoming and generally very helpful, however, that does not make up for the poor quality if the hotel. The first room allocated was tiny, the TV did not work, and the room was about the same temperature as a sauna!

The staff were very quick to re-allocate a room, which was bigger, but the air conditioning was still not working, although the room was a decent temperature and could be kept cool by occasionally opening the window. Given the noise from the street below this was not a permanent solution! Even with the window closed the room was still noisy.

The beds were hard, but not uncomfortable.

The breakfast buffet was poor quality. The hot food selection was disappointing. The cold food selection was reasonable, but nothing to write home about. The coffee was good!

Speaking to other guests they were making similar comments about the temperature in their rooms.

Overall, for a four star hotel it is disappointing.

Breakfasts were plentiful and very good, can't fault these. Sorry the restaurant was not open for evening meals - especially on arrival, tired and hungry.
However, the double room left a lot to be desired. It was cramped round the double bed and had only one chair, no drawers and a bedroom mirror too low to use without a chair or stool. The decor was tatty and the tilt & turn window didn't close properly - adding to the annoyance of external noise. There was a general feeling of mean-spiritedness and skimpiness. The bathroom was clean but SO cramped! to get in the shower meant a squeeze past the toilet and a breath-holding slither past the shower taps before the door could be closed - I am quite small, so don't know how a larger person would manage!
Location is fine (as long as you can avoid the queue of touts) and easy to walk to the main sites and several convenient eating places.
Expect 2 star quality and you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Avoid lower floor rooms overlooking courtyard - very noisy outside air conditioning outlets disturb...

Hotel was very nice, clean, staff was very polite.
Rooms are fairly big for Old City hotels.
Breakfast was nice, with variety of fruit and vegetables.
Roof top terrace is great to relax after a long day of sightseeing.
