Everything at the location was as promised in the very good reviews. The staff was very nice and helpful, the breakfast had everything it needed and the rooms were nice and clean! It is located only a few minutes from Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque and many other interesting places.

We chose this hotel because of its location and good reviews here on tripadvisor. Hotel is located in side street but in central location - 5-10 minutes to all major sights like Topkapi, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern... Near by are 2 tram stops and a few steps away is ferry terminal. The staff is very friendly and helpfull - hotel owner (old lady) gave us a map at first day and she give us lot of informations about neighbourhood, atractions, directions...etc and every morning she was talking with guest and she supervise if everything is okay. Breakfast was decent and delicious. Rooms were nice and clean, we have our own safe and in bathroom bathrobes, slippers, toothbrush...
At check- out we have received turkisch cofee like a gift.
Overall the hotel is very good choice and worth to visit.

Hotellino is located on the European side of Istanbul. One can walk from the hotel to practically all the major Tourist spots in Istanbul. Topkapi Palace, Ayasofia, The Blue Mosque and the Cistern are all about a 10-15 minute walk. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast although the same every day with very minor changes is good and sumptuous. We stayed on the 3rd Floor in a three single bed room. The rooms are small compared to North American standards but was clean, had good amenities and safe.

We chose this hotel at random, based on some good reviews about it on the internet & the very central location. It certainly lived up to its reviews, & was exceptionally well-situated for exploring the city. The staff were all really friendly, especially the owner (unfortunately I never found out her name) who was very helpful in recommending restaurants & suggesting ways of getting around the city. She lent us a tram card so that we could make use of this efficient form of transport & was really interested in hearing about when we had lived in the city 13 years ago. The room was comfortable, unfortunately noisy due to the construction site next door, but a set of earplugs & the aircon on & we slept really well! We will definitely return, hopefully next April.

I stayed at Hotellino for 3 nights for a short trip to Istanbul. On arrival check-in was swift and the reception showed gave me a map of Istanbul, highlighting all the main tourist attractions as well as recommending a few tour packages.

On the topic of tourist attractions, Hotellino is within 5-10 minutes walking distance to the main sights including the Blue Mosque and Grand Bazaar.

The hotel itself is clean, with fairly modern fittings (I would say the least attractive element is actually the reception area as you walk in) with good A/C and decent sized rooms. The buffet breakfast is the same each morning and is fine.

All in all I had a very pleasant stay and is perfect for the kind of tourist who wants to get out and about to explore the city and have somewhere safe, clean and comfortable to rest their head after a long day.

Room Tip: Seems a fair amount of building work going on to the side of the building, that goes on till the ear...

A very good hotel just behind the Sirkeci station.
Small but very comfortable room (especially the mattress).
Very good position, next to the tram, you can go eveyrwhere with it.
For me it was the first time I stayed in this area in Istanbul, much better than the Taxim and more traditional.
Very kind staff, especially the Lady and the Sir, who are probably the owners, who say every morning "good morning" to each one and help with a map to find where and how you'll go.
And a very gentle gesture the offer of a package with traditional turkish coffee.
I will stay again with my family.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 202, it was small but comfortable.
