I feel compelled to write my first ever review following a wonderful stay at the Hypnos hotel.
Everything from the arranged pickup at the airport to leaving for home 11 days later was top notch. This was my second stay at the Hypnos (and it will not be the last). The first was a one night stopover that confirmed this as a fantastic place to stay.
Central to all the sights and 1 minute from the tram line. The hotel has a small but stylish cafe on the ground floor with both inside and outside seating. Great for breakfast ( my wife like the Turkish omelet so much she had it for 10 straight days!), a quick lunch, coffee, dinner or just chilling with a glass of. Wine. Our room was the top floor suite with balcony with fantastic views of Hagia Sophia. We enjoyed many evenings sharing a bottle of wine there.
The shower is to say the least a feature, having a glass wall onto the bedroom! Everything was top notch throughout. And it was a shame to have to pack up and leave.
All the staff spoke excellent English which made things so much easier.
just 5 doors down the street is an excellent Pub come sports bar where it was great to join in with the locals watching top English, Italian, Turkish and European football.a
Last tip for those planning to visit Istanbul. Consider the Istanbul Eats walking tour, especially the two markets two continents tour. As well as gaining a real understanding of the Turkish food scene it was an invaluable introduction to the Asian side which we re visited later on several other occasions.
We are very much looking forward to revisiting Hypnos in a few years time
