Hypnos Design Hotel
Ranked #192 of 1,159 Hotels in Istanbul
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 May 2013

This is the perfect place to be if you are looking for a little bit of peace and quietness in a loud place like Istanbul where somethings is always going on. Everything from the design and privacy to the amazing food served in the restaurang was really exceptional and impeccable. The service was on top and i was very happy with the treatment i got. Although its a little hotel and is pretty new, it is unbelievable the amount of work that was layed on the details of the hotel, totally worth the name Hypnos Design Hotel.

We was in Hypnos for three nights, from 1st to 4th of May.
The hotel is in a strategic position near Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace and Blue Mosque.
Rooms are perfectly clean and different by design. Breakfast is good and the staff is very
friendly!!! We had a great holiday thanks to the guys of the hotel...thank's to Yetkin...thank's Chef to the fantastic Lamb Cassarole!!! We'll be back soon Hypnos...

Its a bit of a mixed bag this hotel, you cant fault the position, its in the middle of everything in the old city. On a whole the stay for five nights was great. We had a top floor suite with great views of hagia sofia. It has little design surprises here and there. The staff are very helpful when you ask ....but attention to detail is lacking in some areas. Breakfast was like a bit of a surprise in the morning in that each morning we had no idea what shape or timeframe it would be delivered. We ordered omelettes for most days and the time taken to make them would be from 15 mins to 45 mins they at times seem massively understaffed. Our toilet seat in the room was off center our whole stay and while our room was very funky the cleanliness was a bit patchy at times. With little things this could be a great hotel ....unfortunately a few things let it down.

We were agreeably surprised about warm welcome and very kind, helpful staff. In spite of unexpected bad weather in April we felt there very good, like at home. Staff was extremely friendly - help us in any matter what we need. Always advise us good place to visit (restaurants, hamam etc.).
Rooms are small, but very nice decorated. Each of them has different style. Location is perfect - everything is approx. in 10-20 min. walking distance.
We liked our breakfast - everything is specially prepared by our choise, not prepared in advance.
Thank you for unforgettable 3 days in Istanbul!!!

We have been there for honeymoon. We enjoyed our stay there and we can recommend the hotel to all who want to have a excellent managed hotel which is nearby of most of the attractions in Istanbul. The metro station is just a 1 min walk away from the hotel. The hotel has to be "experienced" with its fantastic concept and design.

We visited Istanbul for our wedding anniversary, and stayed at the Hypnos for 2 nights. We chose the hotel for the location and the individually designed rooms. Location is perfect: just minutes away on foot to the Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Cemberlitas Hamam - yet in a quiet enough side street.

Some reviewers complained of the heat and inability to regulate the temperature - we set the air con on 23C every night, and it was still at that temperature when we woke up in the morning,so no complaints there. Also, someone wrote about the window only opening 35 degrees - it's a bit tricky, but you have to turn the handle all the way down, pull the window out towards you and then it slides away like a french door, so its possible to get onto the balcony.

Breakfast is a la carte and is yummy - but just FYI, a Turkish omelet (albeit delicious) is not like an omelet at all; its more like loose scrambled eggs with tomatoes (we loved it)

The room we stayed in (Glamour) was small (just enough for 2 people and two small suitcases), but comfortable. During booking, the rate did say that we would get a welcome drink and an upgrade (if possible), which we didn't - and usually, that would affect my review, BUT the hotel manager whom I arranged our stay with was so incredibly nice and helpful, we didn't mind in the slightest.

Enes arranged our transfer for us from the airport; when our flight got delayed, he took care of everything and was waiting for us at 6 am when we finally arrived. We also had a late flight home, and Enes let us check out at 11pm, free of charge, on the day of our departure. He was professional, helpful and polite, always offering to help us with any questions we had. This really was a case of 'the person made the stay that much better'. Without Enes, this would have been just a nice hotel - he made our stay at Hypnos that much better.

If I had to pick some things that could be improved upon, it would be the sound isolation in the rooms (we could hear our neighbors showering in the morning) and the plumbing in the shower.

Other than that, it was wonderful.
