“Fun little boutique hotel in the heart of Istanbul's old town”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

if you are looking for a great little boutique hotel in the heart of Istanbul's old town then I would suggest giving the Hypnos a try. While the rooms are certainly not palatial the hotel is located ad the center of action but out of the way enough so as not to feel overwhelmed the moment you walk out the door. The rooms are very cool and from what I understand each one is unique.

The air-conditioning and WiFi were excellent with the rooms being well enough insulated that there is very little if any noise from the street.

Room Tip: Choosing a good room doesn't seem to be an issue as the ones we saw were all quite interesting...

I stayed at Hypnos for 4 days and I have to say, I fell in love with the place. Their rooms are uniquely designed, each one themed (I was staying in Urania). I had requested for a balcony before arrival and they made it a point to make sure I got the specific room. Everyone working there are extremely helpful, polite and genuinely will go the extra mile to make sure you enjoy your stay.

The room features were all functioning properly, AC was brilliant and WiFi was extremely fast. I didn't eat at the restaurant downstairs so could not comment on that.

The location is ideal as well, walking distance to all the major attractions in Sultanahmet, good eats, good shopping and best of all, it's not on a busy main road so you avoid the road noise.

If I go back to Istanbul, I would definitely stay there again without a moments hesitation.

I stayed here for a short stay in Istanbul and enjoyed it. The hotel is clean and very well priced. The location is good as it is walking distance to the Grand Bazaar, Blue Mosque, and Hippodrome. The staff was nice and very helpful.

Conversely, the rooms are small. The rooms are also very dark but I think that is part of the design theme. I personally prefer lighter rooms. Unfortunately, I like to workout even on vacation and there is no gym at or within walking distance of the hotel.

Istanbul is a huge and beautiful city. When choosing between areas to reside, I was between the Taksim and Sultanahmet (aka Old Town). I chose the latter and was pleased with it's proximity to tourist attractions. If I had to do it again, I would stay in the Taksim. The Taksim was more modern, more liberal, and more lively, with a better nightlife. I would have visited the Sultanahmet neighborhood for a day excursion. This hotel is in an excellent location in the Old Town but a distance from the Taksim neighborhood.

45 lira from the airport was good although the train from airport is available with only one change. Public transport to the shopping areas of Istanbul . Take train across water, get off walk two blocks and up the tram to shopping heaven. Walk to the largest shopping mall the other way

Staying at Hypnos was a great way to start our holiday. The staff were very friendly and always helpful. The location was great; only a short walk to all the attractions. Beautiful rooms - all with different themes. And the restaurant in the hotel served tasty food!
