Kafkas Hotel Istanbul
Ranked #635 of 1,159 Hotels in Istanbul
Reviewed 7 August 2009

This nice and friendly hotel has spacious rooms and is located near the Top Kapi, and a lot of other famous buildings in the city centre on the European side of the Bosparus. The hotel is easy to reach with the tram (also from the airport with one transfer from subway to the tram) with the nearby stop called 'Sirkeci'.

The rooms are spacious and clear with fresh sheets. Only the rooms on the street side could be a bit noisy, also because the tram goes strait by. The staff is very helpful. The free WLAN is not on every floor accessible but in the lounge does it a great deal. The views from the rooftop are great! The breakfast is also served out there..

I stayed in Kafkas Hotel on the way to a backpacking trip in the Levant . On the way back I stayed there again.

Fast and very friendly service at reception by Ayhan who is absolutely wonderful, very knowledgeable of the city and very keen to assist a lost tourist. Excellent customer service!
The rooms are clean and well kept. I had a quiet and comfortable stay at the Kafkas. I would definitely recommend this hotel to someone travelling to the city. Not expensive and offers a comfy environment. It is located near several restaurants, cafés and within easy walking distance to some of the major tourist attractions and the tram runs right in front of the hotel so it is quite easy to get where you want to.

It is convenently located in the center of the Old Istanbul (right on the tram line). The hotel offers what are necessary for independent budget travelers -- small room/shower, modest breakfast, and free wireless connection. The hotel staffs were generally very helpful during my stay. The cleanness of the room was just adequate.

However, I had been bothered by the noise coming from the reception, lobby, and corridor. This kind of complaint can be subjective, but the level of noise is probably high as I am relatively not sensitive to noise.

An adequate hotel on the tram line from the ferries & train station up towards the Hippodrome etc. Also convenient for Bazzar.

Comfortable clean rooms with satellite TV. Very small lounge area in reception. Roof terrace where breakfast is servered from which you can see the Golden Horn.

Breakfast = "continental" : boiled eggs, bread, cold meats & cheese. Many good resturants in area - especially up hill behind hotel.

Internet access in hotel and in road down hill.
