Reviewed 2 February 2012

Great, little hotel ! On a good location for visit to the Grand Bazaar, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque.Tram line is very near and a lot of small shops around hotel are good source for buying some of necessities and also, Mirilayon is in Istanbul's area named Laleli and near by are dozens of curtain and men clothes shops.
Hotel is really nice, clean, rooms and bathrooms are little beat small, but it really doesn't matter 'cos staff is very friendly and polite. Maybe they are not very good with foreign languages, but their kindness will make it up for you. Breakfast was great, plenty of different kind of food, something for everybody and some Turkish dishes which is great for tourist curiosity!
If you go to Mirilayon, order Turkish coffee at the bar (and you will try Turkish delight with coffee, of course), it's strong, but very tasteful and enjoy your vacation in Istanbul.

I was transferred to the Mirilayon at another hotel's expense because of a problem with my room. How happy I was to now be at the Mirilayon!

The location is great - just a short walk from Aksaray tram stop, and not too touristy. I was offered a drink and Turkish Delight upon arrival. The room was very comfortable, the shower room a little bijou. The breakfast was impressive and included Turkish, a range of cereals, breads and preserves, plus a selection of English-style hot options. Also, some other dishes were cooked to order at no extra charge.

By far the best aspect of the Mirilayon is the staff. Nothing is too much bother. Special mention must go to Esra on reception who I found to be very welcoming, efficient, along with speaking very good English.

We had a perfect 3 days in the hotel. Rooms are quite small, but nice. The staff is just perfecrt and very very helpful, thank you very much to all of them.
Upon arrival we had welcome drink and turkish delights, in the room the welcoming bottle of wine and fruit busket was waiting for us, that was a plesure.
Breakfast is very ok, anouth to be full, plus to the open buffet you can order omlet, pancackes and other things, which are totally free.
Destination: it is close to Aksaray train station, what is comfortable to get from the airport by metro, and city center. 2 tram station to Istambul Grand bazaar, what is also very comfortable. Hotel is NOT in the city center, what was nice for us, as I like to sleep in a quite, not very turist croudy places.
But if you would like to be in a walking distance to all the sightseing places, choose other hotel situated in Sultanadmed area!
There is a very cute SPA in the hotel, I had very nice experience of turkish peeling and foam massage done by lady. Very recommended experience.
So, I woud advice to choose this hotel if you want to explore the wonderfull city - Istambul and ready to use public transport, which is very comfortable by the way, if you want to make a nice shopping ( there are many shops in the area of the hotel) and to be not far from the center of the city!

Mirilayon has good facilities, the breakfast is good, and the service is excellent. They really go out of their way to try to help you. Much of their staff spoke very little English, so that limited our abilities to communicate with some of the employees but others knew enough to answer questions when we needed it. The rooms were a little outdated and small, but overall clean and cozy. They say they have a restaraunt, but the menu consisted only of bar drinks and the kitchen was closed when we tried to go there for dinner.

The location is relatively good as well. We were able to walk to all the major sites. It's hidden on a little street a little distance from the Grand Bazaar. Sultanhamet (the area that has Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, and Topkapi Palace) is about a 1 km walk from the hotel.
