“Not perfect, but not a bad choice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013

Old building in old Istanbul, pretty clean (with a little to wish for in the bathroom – it deserves an upgrade!). Friendly staff - excellent English - and very very helpful.
Parking is not available, but you can find nearby if you ask the staff.
Decent breakfast, but nothing special. The hotel is part of a local network of hotels and restaurants – ask for the 10% discount card for some of the nearby restaurants (good Turkish traditional food).
The street (with it's tram) is right in front of some of the windows, so ask for a back room if you are sensible to noise (not too noisy for us). Tram station for both directions is right in front – very easy to reach some other interesting parts of Istanbul.
Sofia, the Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace are within walking distance, as are shopping streets (Istanbul has almost only shopping streets :). Plenty of restaurants and just a couple of minutes by tram to Grand Bazar or to the Galata Bridge and Bosphorus trip boats (you can also walk there). You have to change public lines to go to Taksim square.
As a conclusion: not perfect, but taking into account the location and price, it's definitely not a bad choice.

This hotel is close to all tourist places at sultan Ahmed area which is already mentioned by others. The staff are very helpful and very keen to help the gusts not inside the hotel but also advice u about the places in Istanbul. A young great lady at reception very good speaking English gave us on arrival a free cheese cake in the hotel restaurant, a brief about Istanbul and very good advice about safe areas, shops, .. ect. Hussein one of the staff who help us a lot. The v. good hotel manager most of the time presences at the hotel lobe making sure every one happy and gave us a late chick- out 1530.

Room Tip: take room away from the street due to train station in front of the hotel.

I recommend Constantin Hotel with all my heart. Its position, friendly staff and great manager will give you a reason to come back again and again. It is so near to Aia Sophia and Blue Mosque, to Golden Horn and Kapali Bazaar, Topkapi Park is in neighborhood... Someone will say it is noisy, but I will answer: if you want calm and quit place for your sojourn, go to Geneva, Istanbul without its specific noise is not Istanbul. So enjoy your staying in Istanbul and choose CONSTANTIN Hotel!

Room Tip: 4th floor is great with its view to Topkapi Park

The Staff of the hotel was very friendly and competent. Buffet breakfast- delicious. The location of the hotel is central - the Topkapi Saray Museum, Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Archeological Museum, the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia are all within walking distance. I will definitely stay there again.

This is an older style hotel situated near the Topkapi Palace and Blue Mosque. The rooms are large and comfortable and the staff go out of their way to be helpful, immediately fixing any problems. The hotel is situated at the Gulhane Tram Stop, making it easy to travel there from the airport by train and tram. There are many excellent restaurants nearby.

During my vacation my husband and I stayed at Constantine Hotel which is in a centric location. The hotel staff is extremely attentive and helpful (waiters, manager, receptionist and cleaning lady). It is a very nice and are near to all points of interest in Istanbul. Every time we entered to hotel the staff offered me a cup of coffee and for my husband his Turkish tea.
