“Try the roof top cafe for great views!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013

We did not stay in the hotel, however, lunch in the roof top cafe is worth the climb up three flights of stairs. The view of the Blue Mosque is overwhelming, while the opposite side of the cafe faces the harbor. The food was very good. A large mixed Turkish salad plate and a meat dish were very tasty and reasonably priced. If you are near the Blue Mosque on a hot day, try cooling off here, nice breezes.

My friend and I were greeted warmly. We asked for an extra cot, and a single bed was added to the room. Small but clean room. Window looked out on the street so we could watch people strolling by. There are restaurants and shops nearby. A quick (5 minute or less) walk to the Blue Mosque and other sites. Did not get to partake of their breakfast b/c we had to catch an early flight.

We arrived in Istanbul and already had booked and paid for our hotel. When we got there, it was complet opposite of what they offered on the Internet and they were rude about it. So, we took our suitcases and walked, we then found Charm Hotel. It was newly renovated and such a gem. We loved it from the minute we arrived. The staff were amazing. It is close to all the big sights, walking distance and the friendly staff will arrange transport or tours for you as well. The restaurant was stunning and many evenings we would sit at a table on the pavement and watch people go by and take in the Istanbul city. We have recommend a few people to go to Charm Hotel and they have all come back and agreed it was a lovely hotel.

Located in Sultanahmet, close to the Blue Mosque (less than 10 min walking), Agia Sophia & Basilica Cistern and Tramway station (10 min), Topkapi (15 min), Grand Bazaar (20 min) and Galata Bridge (30 min) ... the rooms has a quick Wi-Fi and LCD TV with more than 1000 channels, fridge, hari dryer ... the hotel is clean, staff are very friendly and willing to help especially Serjuk at the reception. The Breakfast is descent. The room and the hotel is a little small but it doesn't matter.

We stayed at this hotel for a week in December and we were very pleased with the service. The hotel is clean and quiet. You can enjoy your coffee at the terrace with the view of the blue mosque just in front of you and the Marmara sea.The location is ideal for visiting the main attractions. The Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia are just few minutes walk away from the hotel.
We would like to thank the hotel staff for their hospitality and friendly atmosphere especially Seljuk and Tarek.
The breakfast was acceptable but we would like to advice the manager to improve it.

Room Tip: Rooms on third floor are quiet and nice view if deluxe room

A hotel in an excellent location in the historical area of Istanbul. Very friendly accommodating staff. Very unaccompanied female friendly with no harassment or innuendo. Lovely view from the roof terrace of the Blue Mosque and Bosphorus. The restaurant prices were reasonable especially with the hotel guest discount, and the drinks prices were excellent for a hotel in this location. On the downside there is no lift and the hotel covers 4 floors and a roof terrace, the room we had very small, clean and modern but small. Helpful carried the bags up and down the stairs.

A great location, reasonably priced especially for the area. Pleasant friendly and helpful staff. Small rooms and ask for a lower story room if possible. If mobility is any kind of an issue then this hotel is not suitable.
