“Spacious room and great staff, but….”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

This hotel has its positive and negatives. First, the positives: (1) The staff, especially the front desk and breakfast room staff, are very courteous and helpful, and made us feel special; (2) Our room, which has a view of the back courtyard, is quite spacious; and (3) The hotel is walking distance to all major attractions and close to the tramway.

On the not so good side, the hotel is very basic, it has the feel of a bed and breakfast. The breakfast is very basic with little variety; during our four-night stay, the offerings during breakfast did not change. Housecleaning did not change our beddings for five days. On two occasions, housecleaning took away the used towels, but did not replace with clean ones. We had to request towels after returning from sightseeing. Also, we had to request toilet soaps every evening because housekeeping did not replenish them. We did not complain about the housecleaning to the manager until when he asked us if we enjoyed our stay when we were leaving for the airport. He apologized profoundly.

Overall, the home-feel environment did not compensate for the negatives; we are not likely to stay in this hotel during our next visit to Istanbul

Room Tip: We stayed in a room facing the back courtyard. The view was not very pleasant. That didn't bot...

We recently spent 7 nights at Muyan Suites, Istanbul. We were in a suite, with our son. The hotel location was ideal, in a quiet street walking distance to all the old city sights and restaurants. Walking the streets around the hotel gave us an insight to local old city life without the tourist influence. We heard the call to prayer every day and would have been disappointed to be in Istanbul and not heard that. Our suite was well decorated, comfortable and of good size. Breakfast was a variety of local foods in addition to a "continental breakfast" and of course Turkish coffee or Green apple tea. The staff at the front desk and dining room were very friendly and helpful such that after a few days it was like staying with friends. Mr Aslan,the manager, Miss Tugba and their colleagues did an excellent job to make us welcome and well looked after. Their hospitality was so good that we would only want to stay at this hotel if we visit Istanbul again. We have travelled extensively and always stay in boutique hotels in the old part of any old city and we highly recommend Muyan Suites.

We stayed at Muyan Suites for 5 nights in April 2014 and had a wonderful experience. ALL of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they made sure our time in Istanbul was stress-free and enjoyable.

Our room was on the top floor (level 3) at the rear of the building and was very quiet. We did not hear the early morning call to prayer (if in fact there was one!?) even though the hotel is located very near the famous mosques of Sultanahmet. The room was very large, very clean and elegantly furnished. The bed was large and very comfortable. The room was serviced perfectly each day and we really appreciated being given a large bottle of water daily. The breakfast buffet has a good selection of foods - including lots of fresh vegetables, cheese, fruits and yogurts which were appreciated!

The location is good. On a quiet backstreet away from the hustle of Divan Yolu and the Hippodrome but close to all the major sites in the old district of Sultanahmet.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Istanbul.

The Muyan describes itself as a "boutique hotel" but it's tired and looks as if it was designed by my granny. If you're looking for something slick, this isn't it. The room and common areas were probably clean but the dated and bashed fittings made them feel otherwise. I feel that it would have had much tougher reviews were it not for the excellent helpful and friendly staff, particularly the manager and the breakfast manager.

Just returned from three nights in Istanbul and stayed at Munyan Suites, perfect location in side street minutes away from major sites i.e.Blue Mosque etc. Aslan and his staff very helpful
we much appreciated having a very early breakfast 6.15am (usual breakfast time starts 7.30am)due to flight time on our last day, would have been grateful for toast and coffee, but the complete buffet breakfast was laid out for us, a very kind special touch.
Rooms and bathroom excellent. Would recommend it to any family and friends visiting Istanbul.

We wanted to stay at hotel close to the Hippodrome. This hotel was a great value, had a friendly staff, awesome breakfast spread, and just a short stroll to the hippodrome where we spent our evenings eating Shawarmas and watching the Blue Mosque glow in the evening light.

This boutique hotel near the Blue Mosque and many other historic sites is ideally located. The rooms are nice and fully upgraded. The staff are very cordial and helpful and the service is excellent. I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good. However for quietness ask for a room away from the street.
