“Very comfortable stay”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Had a great three-day stay here. Location is excellent. Wifi, air conditioning, and breakfast buffet were all good. The owner is friendly and helpful. He booked tickets and transportation, and provided recommendations that were great. The hotel is small so it has a homey feel. The room I stayed in was small but well kept and it had a great view of the Sea of Marmara.

Okay lets start with the good points...
the location is great just !0 minutes uphill walk to the Blue Mosque.
A view of the Bosphorus across the rooftops
Good sized shower with hot water
Wifi in rooms
Good sized room with air conditioning
Cold beer only 7TL
The bad points.....
Cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired-I bought bleach and wipes to do the bathroom.
The bedroom surfaces were dusty and the window ledges had not been done for months and the curtains were dirty.
Breakfast is not very good , the selection is okay but no serving spoons, the red "juice" in a machine is fermenting, the tea is awful, the tables are not very clean and neither are the plates. Worst of all the person "serving " breakfast clearly hates doing it -she can barely say good morning and despite an 8 o'clock start time two mornings there was no bread till 8.15.
Others have commented on the stairs so I won't!!

Mystic is in a good location near the Blue Mosque. The room was a good size and the shower good. But the room was not very clean and there was damp patches on the roof. The shower was pretty dirty. A reasonable breakfast served with total disinterest by the owners daughter,the same juice stayed in the container for 5 days not cooled. The owner was nice but has been in the buisness too long & is jaded.

first of all I should tell you that mystic is just hostel not hotel.
it is very dirty and totally different from photos! dont trust on them!
they dont have elavator and the stairs are so small and tight that just 1 person can pass stairs at a time! and all the time you should go up or down the stairs very carefully!the lighting of the hostel is terrible because for example it has 10 stairs, you should reach to the fifth stairs and then the light will on! thats terrible you should pass half of the stairs with no light!!!! especially those small stairs!there were no help for carrying our luggages! and they have a cat that all the time running in the hotel and there were lots of cat's hair on the chairs of restaurant, and one night i saw that the cat was sleeping on the table of breakfast!!! once i entered their kitchen, it was terrible and dirty.thanks god at least they have dish washer!! there were a tv that it was not flat , and i am sure that tv was for them and when they decide to trow it away, they bring it to room for their guests, and it was a mini bar in our room that it was dirty and not working at all! and also no telephone in rooms, whenever you need something you should go downstairs.one night we need 2 glass of hot water,we stayed at so called lobby for 10 minutes,( because they couldnt bring us water to our room) they gave us hot water in 2 different glass, one white and one blue!! we were staying at room "pasha" that it didnt have internnet connection because the modem was so far from our room, and whenever we want to use internet, we should go and sit @ stairs in the floor!and about bathrom: on the first day one tissue paper fall from my hand on the corner of bathroom, and it was still there when we were leaving hostel on the day sixth!!!! they didnt clean bath for 6 days! and they just gave us 3 soap and 3 shampoos (each one for 1 use) in 6 days!and they were so cold and impolite, they didnt even smile at guests, especially their daughter, i said good morning to her, she didnt answer!I have proof for all these claims.

We stayed for a week in the Mystic hotel on the third floor where we had a great view of the Marmara sea and a lovely local mosque. It is located 5 minutes from the Blue Mosque and Haga Sofia and in walking distance of some of the best sites including the Great Basar and Topkapi palace.

The rooms are made up every day. Although simple they are clean with comfortable beds. Best of all is the charming family who run the hotel. Oktay and his family were very friendly and helpful. They speak English and Oktay speaks very good French as well.

I hope to get back there soon as there are still so many things I want to see.

Room Tip: Our third floor room had a great view but there is no lift and the seagulls were sometimes a little...
