“nice cheap hotel in Aksaray”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2010

this hotel is in a very central postition between the 2 metro-stations in Aksaray. you can go there from airport without changing the line.

its in a narrow street with small local traffic. from there it takes you 15 min by tramway to the historical center. you can reach all other parts of old istanbul by feet from there. restaurants are nearby but no touristic ones. most guests are turkish.

i recommend to take one of the rooms in 4th floor as theres a little view to Fatih-mosque.

breakfast is buffet and you can take as much as you want.

rooms are renovated new. only negative was that the TV antenna didnt work on all channels and there are no english ones.

due to the lower room rates for a 3*hotel its a good deal to stay there. you are in the center but dont pay as much as in sultanahmet district.

This was our second stay at this hotel in Istanbul, for a stay of 5 nights whilst on a 3 week holiday in Turkey. We chose this hotel again because of its excellent location in Istanbul for accessing the public transport links in the city. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the Aksaray Metro stop when coming to/from Ataturk Airport. It is also adjacent to a tram stop which takes you into Sultanhamet and other city locations. The hotel itself is a basic business-class hotel offering clean rooms (cleaned daily), spacious bathrooms and a decent buffet breakfast. Having travelled around Turkey, we found the breakfast offered a wider selection than other hotels including a hot dish, yoghurt, a cereal, fresh bread, cakes, plus the ubiquitous cucumber, tomato, olives, watermelon, meats, cheeses and jams/honey. Drinks offered included a selection of teas, instant coffee, squash or milk. If you want to see the city from a convenient location at a reasonable price (100YTL/£40 prpn), this hotel is ideal. However, if you want the ambience of a romantic getaway then we would suggest you look elsewhere.

We have just returned from a holiday in Istanbul and stayed at the Allstarr Bern Otel for one week. The hotel itself was clean and tidy with very comfy beds. The staff was courteous but not always helpful when we needed information or help in any matter. We were given the same breakfast everyday for one week! The hotel is about 5 tram stops away from Sultanahmet. The tram station being right outside the hotel. If you're looking for a clean hotel then this ones ok. Be careful when you're ready to leave. We were quoted our stay at the hotel in Euros - however when we were leaving they wanted payment in Turkish Liras not Euros and they added on quiet a bit extra. Luckily we were able to work this out and after speaking with the Owner of the hotel we only paid what we was quoted. If we didn't question this we would have paid much much more!

  • Liked — it was clean
  • Disliked — Same breakfast everyday
