Reviewed 27 December 2013

The location is perfect! 3 minutes walking to Sultanahment and tram station. The hotel is clean and the owners are very friendly.
Too cold in the dining (breakfast) room. I assume its ok during summer but in December it is very chilly as no heating is provided (at all).

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor are a bit bigger

my husband and i stayed in this small hotel with a great location in the quiet neighborhood behind the blue mosque. the rooms were okay, tho hard to get into the bathroom as it is so small. we also heard the water pipes going on and off all night; quite annoying!
but the worst part is the unfriendly faces of the family who run the place. not one smile, or kindness showed. i was very happy to leave!

Me and my girl friend we stayed in this hotel from 24/11 forward ,room "Tuci" the price we payed for it, is right for what we get, very cheap and convenient ,room are a bit small, toilet too, especially the sink, we couldn't wash properly, The shower contrariwise very comfortable, steps going to the room are uncomfortable and a bit dangerous,in fact, i slipped down the stairs, fortunately, I am not hurt so much, room presents warm most of the time,nice view, but I think it need a good arranged aesthetics, after all, as i said, for what we paid for it it's ok.
The staff is managed in family, nice person and available, the only flaw they miss a little smile..
Breakfast not too abundant, especially if you get late in the morning, you don't get eggs..
So after all i can suggest who want to economize their trip in Istanbul. "Pay for what you get".
This is not a complain.
Thanks for every things!!

Room Tip: I would choose the first floor, Tuci room by the sea, i didn't see the other ones..

We (2 girl friends) stayed here at the end of October 2013 for 4 nights. Nice room with sea view and sunset. Mr Balkir and family were very attentive and helped book excursions, taxi transfers and even accompanied us to the Grand Bazaar to help negotiate. Cannot wait to return!

I stayed 2 nights in Mystic hotel and Im very satisfied with the service. I have ordered private car to pick me and friends up on airport and the driver was there on time. Hotel is very good. Its just 3 minutes walk from Blue mosque. Hotel stuff was more then helpfull. Our room was clean and i loved it, and price is not much really. This hotel felt like home really, and next visit to Istanbul, I will definately stay here.

This hotel is close to all the major attractions and the cost of a room represents very good value for money, the owner was very helpful and gave me good advice on how to get to the Asian side of Istanbul.
Breakfast was OK nothing special but for the price charged I did not expect anything much.
The only thing that I did not like were the stairs, they are very steep and the lights along them are activated by a sensor which comes on just a bit too late, a lower or ground floor room would be best for those who are not fit or confident with steep stairs.

So if you are looking for good cheap accommodation as a base to visit Istanbul then this is the place to stay.
