“Our Experience at Muhlis Bey Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights. It is a little Hotel with familiar atmosphere. The staff is really friendly und helpfull. There is always someone to ask for help ... 24 hours a day. Very special is the great view from the terrace right between Aya Sofia and the Blue Mosque. Topkapi Palace is only a 2 or 3 minutes-walk away. All in all the hotel is located in the perfect area for sight-seeing tours and if you want to enjoy Taksim-nightlife, it is only a few stops with the tram (tramstation 5min-walk from hotel). The breakfast was ok and familiar. Whitebread with 2 different cheeses, eggs, vegetables, sausage and a choice of cereals. To drink they had juice, coffee and different tea's. The only thing to complain about where some stains on the bed-sheets and the narrow rooms, but we slept well and even had German TV-Channels. All in all we are really happy with our desicion to stay at this hotel!!! For that price it was *outstanding* and we are looking forward to our next visit. Greetings to all staff-members from your recent German guests!

PS: The admireable rooftop-terrace was available for us at anytime. Nice evening-views all over istanbul with a cup of tea or a beer! Don't get me wrong: It's a quiet and comfortabe atmosphere for the whole family, not a place with loud drunken people :D Yes, even when us, the Germans where there :D

the hotel is very close to the blue mosque and is at walking distance to main attractions.
rooms are clean, the style is quite old-fashioned but is ok, for sure the ratio quality/price is very good.
the staff is friendly and helpful, the only issue we has was during breakfast, because the waitresses could not spek english and were standing in front of the kitchen without trying to help serving the bread etc
they also offer transport from airport to hotel at 30€, which is good if compared to taxi prices.

Room Tip: ask for the suite rooms

This small hotel with 9 rooms is excellent with a cozy ambience and a beautiful location just opposite the Four Seasons Hotel ( previous Sultanahmet Jail ) and you have lovely views of the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Sea of Marmara from its rooftop restaurant. We had the suite which were nice and reasonable and the staff was extremely courteous and helpful. The location is superb with everything within walking distance. Absolutely worth it and a memorable stay.

This small hotel was a real find and well situated for all major attractions in the Old City. It is basically furnished, small but adequate rooms, beautifully clean and provides an adequate breakfast (even when departing at 6am!)
However, it is the charming, helpful staff that set this hotel from some others. Benjamin and the others were only too happy to direct us to nearby local restaurants which were excellent, and provide other helpful information.
We would not hesitate to recommend MUHLIS Bey Hotel to family and friends.

Room Tip: Benjamin will advise a good room!

To start with service it was upto mark. Rooms were cleaned on time. Breakfast was same daily but worth what u pay for. Near to tram and famous places like blue masjid etc. Staff amezing. Always helpfull to needs and want. Though room was small. Enough to keep one suitcase but again valueable and afordable. Always hot water avaliable in hotel

The location was superb,thats what i needed. Only 2 minutes walk to Blue Mosgue and the Hagia Sophia Church.The best part about this small, quiet hotel (only 15 rooms) was the front desk.General Manager Benjamin was especialy helpfull,very talkative and always was with a smile.Gave me a lot of advices,because he knows old town and gave me a lot of information about Bazaar , public restaurants ,Turkish Carpets and so much more.The breakfast was very good,dont need to go anywhere else. Cold cuts, cheese, tomatoes, yogurts,fruits,olives,breads and much more.Everything so tasty. My room was on top floor.It was lovely. Room was clean and very comfortable. They also can arrange transportation to and from the airport,what was very good.So its was such a pleasant stay,surely if im coming to Istanbul again,thats gonna be the place where im gonna stay!!!Big THANK you to ALL the staff.Lovely knowing u

Everything was perfect, breakfast terrace lounge has beautiful landscape, the room was cleaned, location is great, five minutes away from The Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, The Basilica Cistern and other historical fantastic places by walk. Muhlisbey Hotel has friendly, helpful and kind staff. There are a lot of cafes and restaurants two, three streets away. You can spend wonderful times there. it was good choice for me and my friends. Fee is not expensive, it's optimum price in my opinion. So we're pleased. I would recommend.

Room Tip: The suit room has good landscape and comfort.
