“WONDERFUL!”
Reviewed 17 April 2011

Just back home from a week end in Istanbul.
Hypnos hotel has been exactly as I expected: every detail is chosen with great taste.
We reserved the Anatolia suite, room 111, which has a small wooden balcony with a superb view on Aya Sofya.
The room is perfect, white colors, very relaxing after a day of walking in the city.
The bathroom is small but clean and comfortable and it has a wonderful shower separated from the room only by a glass.
The mattress on the bed is top quality, very hard, gifting you a super deep sleep.
Breakfast is served in super stylish Eon restaurant on the ground floor, food is good quality but they can improve service, it took a little longer to get served.
Position is great, 5 minutes walk from Topkapi Palace, Aya Sofya, Blue Mosque, etc and 20 seconds walk to tram station Gulhane, perfect if you want to reach Beyoglu.
Also 5 minutes walk to Galata Bridge and Eminonu pier where you can catch a ferry to the asian side or a Bosphoro Tours.
I will definitely come back.

We stayed in the gorgeous Anatole suite with a balcony looking over the Hagia Sophia, a glass walled shower- you could see into bedroom, and generally a really cool room- loved it........... The staff are extremely nice too.. BUT the bedrooms were really warm air con was locked in heat mode, the tv wasn't working right, there was no complimentary water in the room (considering it is unsafe to drink tap water), the curtains were really thin so it was bright very early each am and finally at about 2 every morning a strong smell of frying/cooking wafted into the room (this happened even with Air con off).. It is a very cool little hotel in a great location, but Im a little disappointed that details were overlooked, we were sleepless in Istanbul.. unfortunately not worth the money.....

HypnosHotel2010, Manager at Hypnos Design Hotel, responded to this review, 26 May 2011
Dear Lily,

Like most hotels,our heating & ventilation system is in summer mode or winter mode. So because you stayed in January, it was in winter mode. All rooms can turn off their heating and we are happy to help with this if needed.

Sometimes the guests can mixing up the TV channels. And our stuff can fix the problem with pleasure any time.

We have a filter system and all water is safe to drink in our hotel.

Every balcony has an awning which when opened, it stops light.

Our kitchen extraction fan has been fixed, It was a temporary problem so cooking smells are no longer a problem.

We hope to see you again.

Yours sincerely,

Hypnos Team

Great little boutique hotel in Istanbul's SultanAhmet area, literally a casual 10 min walk from Agia Sofia, Topkapi Palace, and the Blue Mosque. We stayed there for New Year's 2010-11 and could not have been happier. The service is fantastic, casual, and effective (Celim planned our 5 day stay in Istanbul in its entirety without a hitch). The decor is truly that of a design hotel. The rooms are themed and excquisitly decorated (although on the smaller size). The breakfast was great (albeit the same each day). Threre is free wifi, and for a 10EUR fee you can have all the channels on TV you want (but why would you while in Europe's Culture Capital for 2010?). A great effort at a new hotel in the city where east and west meet. Thank you for the great stay Hypnos.

We stayed 5 days at the Hypnos Hotel, a small and nice hotel, 5 minutes walk from the historical part of Istanbul. Our room was nicely decorated, the breakfast was good and the staff very nice. It is 2 minutes from tramway station .

We booked two single rooms, but due to some reservations overlaps my friend and I ended up in one standard room the first night. But the Hypnos Hotel spoilt us massively right after. For the rest of our stay they upgraded us to suites with huge balconies! I loved the Gypsy suite! It's spacious with funky furniture and very stylish little details and accessories. My friend stayed in their rooftop room with a terrace overlooking the city and the sea! Amazing. Splendid atmosphere to chill and relax after a long day walking the city. They serve a Turkish breakfast consisting of little dishes with local delicacies and spreads, and even the coffee was very nice.
The Hypnos Hotel couldn't be in a better location. All sights are in walking distance, the sea/harbour is also only a few minutes away and there is tram station just next door. Fantastic. I would always go back. Our stay's been extremely enjoyable.
Last but not least: the Hypnos staff is super friendly and highly supportive! You ask for something and they make it happen. Perfect home in Constantinople :D
