This is our third year in a row visiting Istanbul, also our third time staying at Deniz Houses Hotel. From the first visit we were impressed by the hotel's staff, cleanliness of the rooms and the great hospitality everybody extended to us. The hotel is located in the old part of townfew minutes walking distance from SultanAhmet mosque and the Ajia Sofia historical museum. It is few minutes away from the Arasta Bazar and couple of tramway stations from the Grand Bazar. In our next visit to Istanbul we'll book our stay again at the Deniz Houses, as mentioned earlier it is clean affordable hotel with emphasize on great services to their guests.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are easily accessible and convenient.

The rooms are simple, but clean. We had a room overlooking the sea, which was nice although there is some noise from passing trains. The breakfast was good and the location makes most tourist destinations an easy walk or metro ride away. For the neighborhood I think it was a good value. It's a good budget option hotel.

Very happy with this hotel. Great location, price and good breakfast.
You can reach the hotel by taxi or shuttle from the airport – not so expensive. But you can also come by local train getting off at the nearby station.
Finding the hotel by your-self might be difficult as city tourist maps are not very detailed and the print is so small and difficult to read. Unless you have one of those fancy GPS thingies on your smart phone I suggest that you print a detailed map from Google Maps. There are so many mini side streets that it’s so easy to get lost in Istanbul.
We took the added option of an “ocean room view”. Great view, definitely, but too much noise from the passing trains down below. At least the trains stopped late at night to give us a good sleep.
From this hotel you can walk up hill through the first market towards to the main square and the famous mosques. But you always need to make sure you are wearing comfortable walking shoes and that your trolley suitcase has robust wheels that can handle cobble stones and stairs.
While most people might tend to hike up town to see the sights, don’t forget to take a walk down below to the sea side promenade. The parks are very nice and it’s probably the only place in town you won’t be pestered to buy anything.
Ladies – always pack a large scarf to wrap over your head and bare shoulders when entering a mosque or church. Guys – take a pair of light weight track pants to cover your short pants. If you look as if you are respecting the local traditions then you will be respected as a visitor.
Careful with the money exchange booths at the airport. They are a rip off. Downtown you will find plenty of places with better rates and no commission. Anyway, don’t worry too much as any shop will take any currency. Bargain hard. Last but not least – if you settle your hotel bill with cash you get an extra 5% discount.

Room Tip: don't be afraid to ask to check out the room first.

Breakfast was great, service friendly, and were very accommodating in rearranging pickup terms when I changed flights midday. Overall a very solid choice, and the location around the corner from the Blue Mosque can't be beat.
