“Istanbul's Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

Tucked away in a quiet street just behind Blue Mosque, this hotel provides a convenient base for exploring all the attractions Istanbul has to offer. Location is fabulous as is the stay itself - nicely decorated room and scrumptious breakfast is only matched by the hospitality of their staffs. Stay here, feel the warmth and experience the joy.

Stayed December 2013, travelled as a couple

Stayed at this hotel in November. The location is good. Close to the sites in Sultanahmet area, i.e Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace all within walking distances. The hotel itself was very good, the room was good size, clean, bed was good. I was most impressed with the breakfast. Last time I went to Istanbul, the hotel I stayed in had a very basic breakfast. This breakfast at Angel's Home Hotel had a very good breakfast and good choices also they have tea and coffee available all day. The last thing I would like to mention is the staff. They are all wonderful really make the stay special and a special mention and thanks to Umit. He was always asking about the stay at the hotel and when we went for breakfast he would come round and offer fresh hot food when it came available. He would also stay and chat with us. really enjoyed the stay.

Hotel's location is the best in Istambul, and in the same street there are many hotels same size.
We stayed with our friends and we had 2 separate rooms on the first floor in the smaller part of the hotel. Rooms have not good noise isolation and I heard my shower in the nearest room. The worst thing was smell from bathroom - very strong smell of air freshner which reminded me smell of anti-mole thing. We tried to keep the bathroom door closed all the time but then it was impossible to stay in bathroom:) Rooms are clean, bed is big and comfortable. Breakfast was on the roof of the building, the view is great, the breakfast was usual, and even poor I would say. So we had breakfast in the hotel only once, all other we preferred to have out. Nice hotel with great location, except the smell, hope hotel will change that.

Satyed there from 15 till 17/11/2013. Very beautiful and cozy hotel. Feelings of comfort and full relaxation during all period of stay. Polite service and tasty breakfast provide everything that you need. Wonderful design of hotel, 24/7 WiFi and perfectly clean rooms will make you feel if not home, but like Angel's home for sure! When i back to Istanbul, there will be no question where to stay, only in the heart of the city - Sultanahmet, only in Angel's home!

We stayed at Angels in October 2013 for 3 days. The staff was nice and helpful, but the hotel is not much more than 2 stars. Our first room had a very low part of the ceiling (140 cm). This was quite annoying, so we changed (and paid extra). The new room was, I would say, from the 1980's. Quite old fashioned and not functional at all. Where are you going to put your suitcase - tell me that. I would not stay again at Angels Home.

''Ok hotel, but... '' i belive you should continue as follows ''''Ok hotel, but... '' but we paid for extra to upgrade although we have seen the room's pictures for travel agent rooms and it made us unhappy.''
Dear guest. Your right about the port baggege in the rooms and just today after your commend we put port baggage in all rooms. But the 1980s furniture u said made me smile :).

This small, family run hotel is the perfect choice for those who truly want to feel the spirit of old Istanbul.
It is located almost in the center of Sultanahmet, a short walk from the Blue Mosque, the Hippodrome and Hagia Sophia.
Although located in the center of the action, close to all tourist attractions, near the square that is flooded with tourists all day, you will not hear a noise and you will not feel the presence of so many tourists.
On the contrary, the street is quiet, peaceful and you will have a great rest after a long day walk.
My husband and I stayed in a hotel for five days in November. We had a room overlooking the street, which was spacious enough and very clean.
Before arrival, we heard a lot about Turkish hospitality, but now we're experienced it for the first time.
All hotel staff were extremely pleasant, helpful and attentive - always responding with a smile. They have performed their duties in extreme silence, without disturbing guests but when we asked for help, we were served at that moment.
Breakfast was served in a self-service restaurant on the top floor of the hotel. The food was delicious, fresh and beautifully presented.
View from the roof terrace is amazing and magical !!!
If you choose this hotel, combined with a visit to the historic old city of Istanbul, you will get something that can not be paid with money - memories for a lifetime.

I stayed a total of 10 days in 2 visits in June-July 2013. The hotel is quiet, even secluded, which is astounding given its very central location so close to the major attractions. The views from the roof terrace are superb, though there are a lot of stairs to climb to get up there. The hotel has a homely, quirky feel with a very whimsical decor. Rooms do vary considerably in size and one in which I stayed had a rather low ceiling in parts. Staff are very friendly and helpful, creating a most welcoming atmosphere. I would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: If you are tall make sure you are not allocated a low-ceilinged room
