“Quaint, friendly and a solid three stars”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

Kupeli palace was good value for money if you want somewhere clean and friendly (but not too pricey) in the Old City.

Our flight arrived before dawn and we went straight to the hotel to drop off luggage - they let us check in straight away and even have breakfast, no extra charge. Staff friendly and helpful, especially Izzit. Downsides: Bathroom was tiny and there is no lift. Would stay again.

Stayed June 2013, travelled with family

Staff were generally friendly and helpful. Good location. Clean. Good value. Plenty of character. More consistency would be helpful. One staff person was definitely not as friendly or helpful as the others. One of our friends got laundry done for free, but no one else did. Working safes in the rooms would be nice.

Awesome hotel with an awesome breakfast! The best thing about the hotel: the friendly staff that is always ready to lend a helpful hand! Izzet was very helpful for us when it came to other things as well. Not only Izzet, but also, Erdal helped us with other attractions we were interested in by searching the internet, calling a taxi, etc. Erdal and Izzet and the rest of the staff are so friendly and nice, we are so happy to have chosen this hotel! This hotel felt like home. If you want a small cute, yet homey feel of a hotel, this place is great! :)

Room Tip: first floor is the only triple room if you have more people

Strongly recommended hotel. Excellent location: close to the city center, no need to get a taxi to go to historical places. Very clean and tidy, administrator Izzet will do his best to make your rest comfortable. Do not expect 4 or 5 star hotel service, because it is a small, redesigned-from-a-house hotel.

Just returned from stay at K.P. Do not beleive their website ! They do not have a bar, no tea / coffee making facilities, no wifi , no restaurant , no parking , Fitness room is a joke and the terrace was closed and infested by feral cats. However the rooms are clean (small) the breakfast is excellent and the staff especially Izzett the manager are first class it is also quite a steep walk to get to the attractions. All in all a very good 2 star hotel.

We stayed here for a couple of days after a week long tour - what a great experience. Yes the bathroom was teeny (no really, if you are a slightly more errm voluptuous lad or lass, then you may battle) and there wasn't a huge amount of space in the room, but it was all absolutely impeccable, the staff couldn't have been more helpful and the location was brilliant (10 minutes walk to the major tourist hubs). Further, breakfast was the best that we experienced in Turkey. I would very much recommend this hotel and plan to stay there when I return to Istanbul.

This is not a 4 star property. The five storey building has no elevator, the rooms are in dire need of renovation and the staff is surly at best. The bed linens had numerous holes and stains. The smoke detectors throughout the hotel have been removed. The building is of wood construction - there are no emergency exits. The surrounding neighborhood is of little interest.
