“Excellent location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a hotel at the centre of the best sites seeing area with lots of good restaurants all within easy walking distance of the hotel. A small hotel with, I believe, 18 rooms which although not large are very clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is good. WiFi was good. However, it would not be suitable for persons with walking disabilities due to no lift in the hotel. I would certainly use this hotel on any future visit to Istanbul. Also an excellent airport transfer service by transfer@ataturkairport.com who supplied a Merc Vito and driver at a cost of a few pounds more than a taxi for a meet and greet service at the airport and return pick up from the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter buit face almost immediately onto a wall with no view...

A friend and I booked this hotel 'last minute' for a 1 night stop over in Istanbul. From the start they were incredibly helpful, arranging cheap shuttle services from and to both airports. The manager, Enver, really took time to help us get our bearings in the City and his staff were just as helpful. The room was cosy and immaculately clean and the location was ideal.
I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for well priced and comfortable accommodation in the heart of Istanbul's Old Town.

Hotel Novano is excellent by several criteria. It is located close to the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia in central old Istanbul. Manager Enver Bayrak is extremely helpful and my room was spotlessly clean, overlooking the busy Akbyiyik Caddesi street, with dozens of crowded restaurants and bars. No lift, but excellent WiFi. Those who want more peace are advised to get a back room looking into an ancient Byzantine wall. Breakfast was terrific, including real Turkish youghurt and oat flakes, which I love. The best criteria is a reasonable price comparing well with other establishments in this touristy area. I will look no further, shall certainly come back.

Room Tip: Lively tourist scene in front, quiet Byzantine wall in back.

I stayed at this hotel together with 3 of my female friends and had 2 rooms and upon request we got both of them with twin beds.
The location couldn't have been better - it's a mere 5 min walk to the blue moschee and the Hagia Sophia and also to Topkai Palace.
The Manager was extremely helpful with advise and suggestions and he had a private car pick-up organised for the airport transporation which was on the spot.
Our room was small but very comfortable and it was the right size for a city trip, WIFI is included and worked perfectly in our room on the 3rd floor, not much of a view but we weren't looking for that.
Breakfast was in buffet form and you could get egg dishes freshly made every day - otherwise flakes, jams, toasts, cold cuts were on offer - for the price quite ok.
Overall a very nice hotel and one I can highly recommend for a city trip to a very interesting city.

Great location in the center of the old town in Istanbul. All staffs were very kind and helpful. Our room was upgraded to a big room at the top floor under the roof. Breakfast is good enough for the price. We would visit here again next time.

It 'a small hotel, located behind the Blue Mosque, in a nice residential neighborhood, which is overlooked by elegant buildings, clubs and shops. It has small rooms but perfectly functional and tastefully decorated. Ours was clean and fragrant, with a beautiful new shower and tidied every day so meticulous, with change of linen and towels. Included in the price was also breakfast of biscuits, tea, coffee, mainly Turkish, then with savory and fried and honey, but excellent. The staff was always courteous and helpful.

Perfect location, walking distance to the main attractions in Istanbul and surrounded by shops, bazaars and restaurants. Helpful staff, always ready to give explanations about how to get to several places.

Room Tip: Choose ground floor room, since there's no lift in the hotel.
