Minel hotel is a modern and has a good price, perfect location,great breakfast and wonderful staff. Special mention must go to Esra who was helpful every time. This hotel satisfied all our needs. Only few steps to sultanahmet,Topkapı Palace and Hagia Sophia. I really enjoyed my stay there and would definitely stay there again...

The place is very nice just a few minutes from station and all histiorical places.. every thing was perfect and we really enjoyed it .. the staff were very nice especially esra she was very helpful and always smiling and all the staff also very helpful .. the room was small but very clean it it could be for newly married and also for families but without children .. the place is too safe ... and I highly recommend this hotel to everyone who wants to go to istanbul for the beauty of this place and safety and the good service and also the perfect breakfast.

After reading reviews I thought it is a great place to stay, but after being there I realised
that it is even better. Location is great and the stuff is very helpful. Rooms are small, but very clean and cute, and breakfast was so tasty. We spend great time there, and will be back again in our next visit to Istanbul. One of travelers best choices for sure. Thank you very much!

This is my first trip in istanbul and it was perfect. Minel hotel close area for topkapi palace,hagia sofia and blue mosque only 5 minute by walking. You can go grand bazaar by walking. However before your trip you have to check Minel Hotel cause it is heart of city center, staff (esra and mehmet),breakfast , every day free coffee was perfect. If you follow main tram station you can see Montana Cafe and you can find easily the hotel. I recommend this hotel for every body. I love istanbul too much....you must try cagaloglu turkish hamam it was perfect....
