Angels House Hotel Istanbul

Anyone stayed here recently? I think some of the reviews are suspect. Comment appreciated. Cheers

1. Re: Angels House Hotel Istanbul

There are certainly a lot of reviews by people who have not posted before or since! TA have brought in a ratings system for frequent reviewers, so when looking at a hotel I would personally give more weight to reviews from people who have history on the forum!

I stayed in the Angels Home Hotel several years ago (when it was ranked in the top 10) - and actually after I booked I begin to get some bad feelings about how genuine the reviews were (many bore the hallmark of fakes!) and also by the tone of some of the emails I got from the management which worried me a little.

Despite this however we went and we had a good stay. It wasn't the amazing hotel the reviewers said it was, and the rooms were small, but it was fine and friendly and it is certainly in a great location.

It may however be under new management now however and so this may all be different (except perhaps the large number of reviews by first time posters!).

2. Re: Angels House Hotel Istanbul

I have just returned from Istanbul (May 20) and stayed in the 3 bed apt. belonging to Angel's Home. Do not stay there!!!!!! I am trying to get a refund for all or part of my money that was wasted there. I don't know about the hotel itself , as the apartment is several streets away. The apt was dirty , shower full of ants (or something small) We didn't use the shower for 3 nights because the mould was worse than the ants. The lobby smelled like cat pee and the sheets had long blond hair (none of us are blond) We were literally living in someones 30 year old apt. (boxes in the hall) at $250/ night.

I don' want to go into everything now, as I will write a comprehensive review with pictures after I deal with Expedia. The slap in the face was the owners(????) attitude. Everything was met with a shrug ( dirty linens, shrug; no phone, shrug; no lcd tv as advertised, shrug; nothing as pictured in the ads, shrug. Finally we were told it was Expedia's fault for mixing up the photos (showing a nice apt, instead of the actual photos.

Also I don't doubt that he and others may be writing their own reviews, whenever I tried to talk to him he was always on his own website on the laptop.

The OP - Allanc - posted almost a year ago and received a reply from GTTD.

Con R obviously has recently had a most distressing and disaapointing stay at the Apartments - and has stated that he will write a full review once he has finished his battles.

If my post 7 can be considered as "off topic chat", then I wonder just why post 6 isn't also deleted on the same grounds?

Because it is easier to get a post deleted than to admit to a mistake.Maybe we should have a whip round for some specs.
