“A little treasure in Istanbul”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

The Levni is nestled in the heart of the old town of Istanbul, a short walk from the tram, great restaurants, the Topkapi Palace and the Hagia Sophia. We were fortunate to stay at the Levni for three nights at the start of our trip and two nights at the end. From the moment we arrived the staff made us feel very welcome and at home. Our rooms were very comfortable and the breakfast each day was excellent - the perfect way to begin the day before exploring the wonders of Istanbul. We hope to have the oppurtunity to return to Turkey and we would love to stay at the Levni again. We recommend it highly.

Very good looking, clean and friendly staff was at the spa and was enjoying relaxation massage during my stay with turkish bath golden mask. Thank you for a great hospitality and definetly will come back to stay at the same hotel when I will be in Istanbul. Loved location as well, it is like at the heart of istanbul and have an easy access to everywhere that i wanted to travel. I really loved it...

Irem and Oxcana took great care of us front desk staff spoke English and made our reservations for hamam and anything else we needed. We'd asked for adjoining rooms with kids and they were ready and waiting for us.. Complimentary bottles of water delivered by housekeeping each day. Great service. Great rooms. Very close to everything. Great, very complete breakfasts included. Pool looked a little 'iffy'' so kids didn't use it, which was too bad since we'd specifically looked for a pool, but it didn't stop us from loving the place. This is the place to stay.

Location is a bit less central than some of the other boutique hotels in the area (the new subway construction is right outside, no fault of the hotel), but the staff more than made up for this minor inconvenience. We were upgraded to a beautiful suite with views of the bhospurus. To top it off, the staff returned $1400 we left behind in the safe. The facilities looked great though we did not have time to utilize it.

Having been all over the world, I've learned how to distinguish hotels with professional service and proper customer relation management. During my stay in Levni hotel I was extremely content with the welcoming atmosphere and professional treatment. Yet I was specifically intrigued by the spa in the hotel. The pampering I got in that spa was marvelous; aside from the novel techniques in body care. I consider myself to be a very satisfied customer and I recommend that everyone visits Levni and indulge in the spa experience.

Rooms are modern, service very high end, and the turkish bath is a must. Breakfast is delicious, although could improve the cold cuts (hams) and fruit selection. The location is superb, although don't get tricked by the construction site around the area, the hotel is very quiet and close to the main attractions in the area.

Room Tip: Preferable the rooms over the restaurant side of the hotel. Are a bit larger.

I booked this hotel for my wedding anniversary after reading a number of excellent reviews on tripadvisor. Although the hotel was ok it was a slightly underwhelming experience overall.

As others have mentioned the hotel is over 2 buildings. When we arrived it was slightly strange that someone from the hotel asked another hotel guest to show us up to reception and we received no help with our baggage. Not what you would expect from a 5 star hotel.

Check in was fine and a pretty smooth experience though when we got to our room we found that it was quite small with not really much space to walk in or get ready to go out. We were moved to a deluxe room for our last night which we found a much better size and I'd recommend this rather than the standard room.

The one major issue we had during our stay was on our 3rd night where we were woken at 1am due to a really bad smell coming from the air conditioning. We were met by a very rude member of staff at reception who seemed very angry at us for making a complaint despite an engineer visiting the room confirming that it smelt badly. He also implied we were lying as all other rooms in the hotel were fine, but I'm not sure what reason anyone would have to complain at 1am! After going back and forth to the room 4 times we were reluctantly moved to a different room for the night.

I would say that this did sour our stay somewhat but I must commend the guest relations manager Yesim who we spoke to about our experience during breakfast on our last day. She took the complaint incredibly seriously and was very apologetic about the experience. As mentioned above we were move to a deluxe room with a bosphorus view for our last night which was very nice. It's a shame that the hotel was let down by this member of staff as apart from this the matter was dealt with well.

Despite the above experience the hotel does have number of positives. It's in a great location which is walking distance to the main sites and very close to a tram stop if you want to go further afield. Yesim and the other staff were very helpful advising on the best places to visit and what the timings are for various tours. The breakfast was decent but I wouldn't go as far as saying it's amazing like other reviews have. We found the hotel to also be very reasonably priced. Perhaps my expectations were too high as I was expecting a good 5 star hotel based on the reviews and I appreciate that I may have just been unlucky and had a bad experience. From speaking with Yesim, the hotel certainly takes service very seriously and I would probably give Levni another chance if I was to visit Istanbul again.
