“Modernity in the heart of the old town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2014 via mobile

This is a decent hotel, with many good modern touches. Location is excellent and you will not need to travel far to see all the sights in the old town - we did everything on foot, apart from one shopping expedition north of the Bosphorus, when we hopped on the T1 tram from nearby (200m away) Sirkeci tram stop.

The hotel staff are friendly and helpful.

Breakfast is a nice spread (although the backstreet view from the restaurant on the 2nd floor is a bit disappointing).

Tea and coffee is available in the room and on the first day a selection of Turkish cakes was delivered to our room.

The gym and pool are not nowhere near as big as they appear on the publicity pics!

If I were to return to this part of Istanbul, I would definitely consider staying at this hotel again. Assuming I am not rich (or stupid?!) enough by then to splash out 700 USD per night at the nearby Four Seasons!!!!

Just back from first trip to Istanbul. The hotel was superb and definitely added to our experience. The staff were so friendly and helpful and thankfully for us spoke excellent English. Great location within walking distance of all attractions in old town. Facilities in hotel are first class and the choices at the breakfast buffet were delicious. We spent a night in the suite which overlooked The Bosphorus. It was an incredible haven with everything you could desire. If you want to treat someone ( or yourself) this is the place for you. The view from the veranda was fantastic. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone who wants a first class hotel with a great location in Istanbul.

This was our first trip to Istanbul, and in our little research Levni stood out as the best option. And it didn't disappoint!

Very practical, well located in the center of the old city (European side) with most of the main attractions within a walking distance. In one day you can actually do it all - Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, Sophia Church, Grand Bazaar, Egyptian Obelisk to name a few. And there are so many restaurants around (including two of our favorites, Can Oba and Imbat). Public transportation is very close to the hotel as well.

The staff is amazing and very friendly. We felt like they went out of their way to accommodate our requests, from booking and last minute changes, to hospitality and tour tips. They really made sure we felt at home! They helped us with airport transfers and finding the best walking shortcuts to our tour of the city. We even booked a boat tour through them, to the Bosphorous Strait, and it was simply a delight (actually, the lunch served at the boat was a true Turkish barbecue that is on my top 10 list ever!!!). Make sure you ask them for all the tips and tours and they will give you the best.

The food is also very good; we ordered room service a few times after a long day in the sun, and the menu options were simple yet delicious (which you won't find in many other hotels). Breakfast is assorted and great, so I highly recommend booking a room with breakfast included.

We loved Istanbul and are definitely coming back. We will stay at Levni, that's for sure and so should all of you reading this review! Thank you again, Levni, for a wonderful vacation time :)

Levni hotel and it's staff are absolutely amazing, we booked Levni online couple of months ago after reading some great reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed.

We had 2 connecting rooms for 2 adults and 3 kids, with a separate keyed external door to make this a 2 BR suite with Bosphorus harbor view from both rooms.

We had a very pleasant stay (7 days in 2 installments); starting from airport pick up, storing our luggage when we went to Greece, helping us with our tours, amazing breakfast every morning, and most of all a very convenient and quite location in middle of old city.

I can't thank them enough, even my kids were impressed with the quality of service and professionalism everyone had...

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floor get amazing Bosphorus harbor view...

Great location, comfortable room, yummy breakfast buffet and wonderful staff. When a recommended trip to Bursa wasn't all that it was promised in the brochure, staff made amends with a free ride to the airport - certainly unexpected and appreciated since we had to leave at 3 am!! Would definitely recommend.

We had two connecting rooms on third floor with views straight up the bosphorous. Rooms were joined in hallway so room to park a pram in the borrowed hallway. Arrived early and they gave us coffee while one of the rooms became available. Room size was good for a major city. Bathrooms beautiful and clean. Great location to walk to all sites in Sultanhamet. Staff very accommodating of children. Good breakfast buffet in bright room. Was construction of new underground underway while we were there. Our rooms looked over the site but noise was barely noticeable - call to prayer was more likely to stir us! Kids enjoyed the pool downstairs even if they are not the target market!

We stayed for 7 nights so we could explore the sights of Istanbul on foot.The Levni is stylish and modern, very clean and the staff helpful and friendly.Our room was quite small but enjoyed a good view.Extensive choices for breakfast and we used the spa daily in the afternoon to help us cool down as it was HOT outside.Paid extra for a hamman which was wonderful.We would definitely stay there again
