We stayed in a deluxe room. The hotel is in a great location (close to old city sights, harbour and tram stops), staff are friendly and helpful, rooms modern and clean, breakfast good, wi-fi connection fast. Would recommend.

Doesnt look much from the outside but is a comfortable hotel with free wifi and modern decoration and furnishings. Ideally placed to visit major attractions, a few minutes walk to Topkapi, Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia. Staff very helpful and although not all understand English they couldn't do enough to help us. Tiny criticism was the breakfast ordered wasn't the one that arrived, a few things missing but apart from that and an evil smell emanating from the bathroom everything was spot on

Recent TA reviews sum up our experience perfectly.
Location: Excellent for major sights; close to the tram line making travel about the city a breeze; a short walk away from most of the top-ranking TripAdvisor restaurants; good shopping nearby; easy walking to major bazaars and Bosphorus cruises; tram access to other ferries and Taksim / New town.
Hotel quality: Our room was small but well-equipped; clean; nice touches with wine and fruit bowl gifts; outstanding staff helpfulness and friendliness - you want to find it - they will help you; recommendations not a problem; free Wifi is a big plus; good breakfasts

Room Tip: Elanaz is not a budget hotel. For more spacious rooms, the price obviously rises. We were satisfied...

We stayed at the Hotel Elanaz for 3 nights in September 2012 and we had a wonderful time! The owners and the staff are extremly helpful, the rooms cosy and clean, the breakfast delicious...The location is perfect too, close to the attractions in the old part of the city and to the harbour where the boats to Asia leave. We recommend this hotel to everyone!

Having spent 7 nights in the Elanaz Hotel, my wife and I would not hesitate in recommending this small 12 room hotel. The rooms are very clean, modern and have everything you need. Staff are friendly and do everything they can to make your stay relaxing and stress-free.
The location is central to most of the attractions. The tram station and train station are both a 2 minute walk. There are dozens of good restaurants and shops all around the hotel.
We'll be back, and we'll stay at the Elanaz.

Room Tip: If you want a view, ask for a higher floor, there are 6 floors with 2 rooms on each.

Elanaz is a moderately furnished, with modern (Ikea like) furniture, very clean and well maintained home-style hotel.

+ excellent owner and staffs - they make you feel at home. we stayed 4 nights, always feel at home and welcomed.

+ great location, at the heart of Istanbul, and close to everything. It is also situated at a side street, so not overly busy/loud.

+ simple but healthy breakfast with sufficient selections.

Noted that with a queen size bed, the room seems to be on small side, but I think it could be common in the center of Istanbul.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the Old Town section of Istanbul. It is within close walking distance to all of the historic sites and 1/2 block away from the tram which takes over to the New Town section. It is also very close to the metro

Anyway, back to the hotel, The rooms as very contemporary and while standard in size for European hotel rooms (which is to say they are a little smaller than what most Americans might be familiar with) the room worked perfectly for me and my wife. The bathroom was a decent size with a great shower (awesome water pressure). My wife loved the room and I liked it very much as well. Neither of us had any complaints. It was clean, quiet, comfortable and offered everything we needed.

The staff at the hotel were superb. The front desk staff were always super friendly to us and the owners (husband and wife) were two of the nicest people we met on our trip. They gave us great suggestions on restaurants and Hamams and even arranged our cab and dinner reservations for us.

There's not one bad thing that I can say about this hotel. We look forward to staying there again on our next visit to Istanbul.
