We stayed at Apex several times, and really enjoyed our stay. The staff is very friendly, warm, and welcoming, especially Nadim. He us some great tips on getting around the city, and allocated hours in chatting with us about the Turkish history. He even took time to resolve our conflict with a tour company that double charged us. We very much enjoyed our stay in Apex, and would recommend this place in a heart beat. Again, great staff, and great location. Hope you enjoy your time in Istanbul just as much as we did.

Room Tip: I would say, you should request a room at the upper floor.

We were picked up at the airport even though our plane was1hour late. We were greeted by incredibly friendly staff. Because we arrived early our room was not ready but once it was cleaned we were offered several rooms to choose from. Breakfast is not over filling but satisfying. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Very easy to get around old town from this hotel. Good restaurants are nearby. My wife and I highly recommend the Apex to anyone looking for a relatively inexpensive hotel.

the hotel makes very nice impression, and if i visit istanbul once more, i would probably like to
stay there. it is the perfect hotel for you, if you like little cozy places, moreover it is very good situated, so it takes five minutes or so to make your way to the Blue Mosque. the rooms are not big at all, and the interior gives rise to some funny sinful thoughts) however, the AC, shower and all te necessary things function properly, the linen is changed daily, and it's more than enough for a nice stay)
what really deserves some praise is the hotel staff. they are nice, friendly and very helpful. so if you have some questions or wishes, they would do their best to please you.

Good budget hotel located central in the Sultanahmet area. Friendly and helpful staff. Overall good room quality. Breakfast could have had better selection though. Was OK.

Close to the tourist attractions.
I would give the hotel my recommendations for a mid-budget oriented traveler.

Our room was not clean at all and our bathroom needed major renovations. The owner was friendly but I would not stay there again!

How do I begin? Hotel manager is one of the nicest person I have met in my travels but the hotel is something else. It has taken me more than a month to decide to write this review of my stay at Apex Hotel in Istanbul, Turkey.

I would strongly recommend that the hotel owners give all their bathrooms a complete overhaul. This is to save the business. Do it during the winter period.

I would like to come back to stay with Apex Hotel again. I will come to Tripadvisor and look at pictures to see if improvements have been made.

Thank you.
