2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2012

The hotel is in a very small street and extremely dingy looking, it has the smallest rooms and the guy apparently the owner is extremely rude!!!The whole night all the sewerage of every room would pass through the pipes in our room and everytime anyone would open their shower or flush the toilet each and every sound could be heard in the room making it extremely difficult to sleep. The reception was empty at 10 in the morning and no opnbe to assist if u need anything!! would never recommend any1 to stay there!!

This is a great place to stay in istambul. In a quite and lovely neybourhood in sultanhamet, just in front of Little Hagia Sofia. It's a small and cosy hotel with a very nice and helpful owner. I strongly recommend it. Good relation quality-price.

Nice and clean hotel in the old Istanbul, about 10 minutes from the Blue Mosque.
The breakfast was fine, the room clean, the sheets were changed every day, as well as the towels. We had the room n°4, at the ground floor. We were worried about the noise but it was ok, especially after a day of visits.
The only problem was the shower, the water was to hot or to cold, and the evacuation was blocked.
After the nightmare of the first hotel, it was really appreciable to be at Antik Sofia hotel.

Stayed here for 5 nights in Jan 2102.
Lovely small hotel with an excellent location, just 5 mins from Blue Mosque and Sophia and Topkapi Palace.
We upgraded to a larger room with a lovely view of the little sophia which is a beautiful mosque.
Breakfast is very basic but consists of cheese,tomato,cucumber,salami,boiled eggs,bread and jam and an endless of tea and coffee.
It is a very clean and friendly small hotel and well worth the room rate.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a larger room with a lovelyview

Lovely hotel located near the sea and the main historical monuments in the heart of the old city center (Blue Mosque, S. Sofia and Topkapi Palace). The room is very comfortable and very clean everyday. Price of the room is very convenient!
Breakfast is very good in a small and nice hall with a beautiful landscape from the window. It felt just like home! The owners are very kind, friendly and helpful in everything we needed (general information, Internet connection, help, suggestions, etc.). It was an enjoyable stay!
