this was my second stay at this hotel ,really it was a very nice hotel in many aspects the most important is that its location in the center of Istanbul and it is near by the tramway 2 minutes walking and also near metro station which enable you to go to airport directly ,, also the stuff there are so friendly and talk in many languages , another important thing is that is is cheap or we can say accepted price in comparison to other hotels in the same time ,and also located in nearby sultan ahmed and outlet and Mall it is overcrowded all the times by russians who come there for trade .. the negative side is that there rooms are some kind old furniture which i think should be changed although my room was on sea view which was amazing but the elevator was not present for the 6th floor ..

Room Tip: 606 is a good room it is wide with nice sea view but you should take the stairs from 5th floor

Stayed at Art Hotel for 2 nights.It's nothing special, but still the room was clean and comfortable.The best thing is that it has great location.Aksaray tram station is within 5min. walk. The area is surrounded with shops and typical Turkish restaurants, also there's McDonald's nearby.I recommend visiting the Grand Bazaar which is 15min. walk from the hotel, or if you're a shopaholic you could walk to the shopping center named Historia which is also very close to the hotel.Breakfast was fine and staff was very helpful, although their English is not that good

this is my favourite type of hotels: cheap, amazing location, with acceptable service. oh and let me emphasize: the staff was so friendly and welcoming. though, I had to use the Google translate app on my phone A LOT.
extra tip: people in turkey just do not speak english in normal pedestrian environment. So if u wanna roll at extra-touristic places where your tongue is spoken.. you'll have to pay for that luxury.
anywho, if yr just another backpacker looking for a place to crash without having bugs crawl over u, and maybe a nice breakfast in the morning..art otel is just perfect :)
oh, and it's really close to aksaray tram station, that's a HUGE plus. u cud basically visist all sights in istanbul using the tram/subway network: it's very efficient, cheap & awesome :D
EXTRA TIP: the is free WiFi in the lobby, they won't be advertising it that much, but if u asked the lady @ the counter, she'll give the password to their connection ;)

Room Tip: no rooms have any views, so do not be sold on "rooms facing the front/rear"..ask to be sho...

Hate the elevator.
Breakfast are ok, good food served.
Rooms are comfy and spacious. Stayed in 3-beds room.
Wifi only in lobby area.
I would recommend the hotel for backpackers.

Hotel is on quit good location, very close to tram station, or you can take nice 20 min walk to Grand Bazar, Aya Sofija and Egyptian market.
Rooms are, honestly, bad, but for money you paid you can't expect anything better.
There is alway hot watter. Rooms are being cleand every day. Breakfast, I'm not demanding but brekfast is not so good. Actually, they have some very good pastry, jam, butter abd honey, that was eatanble, everything else was a little bit to much for me.
Staff is okay.
Best of all is location.

This is not a 3star hotel at all!
The entrance is beside a store with clothes which gets out, in front of the hotel door, the dolls with the clothes.
You have to climbe about 20 stairs with your laggage to get inside the hotel.
The reception is disapointed. Everywere has big packages, it is like α store! It has also a scale!
The elevetor is very small and cabels are coming out of the celling.
Doors of rooms are disastered! and they don' t close well. Room 513 has half door!
Rooms are also dissapointed! Furniture are very old or poor. The blankets are awful.Rooms have no lights, just a taking. Rooms has also no jacks. In room 506 had only one jack inside bathroom! The ventilation is covered with a paper. The wall beside bathroom is full of humidity (celling of bathroom also).
Bathroom is out of imagination! Room 507 has the toilet inside the shower and a pipe in fron of your feet. Cap of toilet is moving and you can' t seat well. I don' t Know who put the tiles in the bathroon. He has no idea at all! Generally the bathroom is very bad made.
Breakfast was just ok, but with low quality.
