Good position to visit the must important place of the city, the room are confortable and silent.
During the summer breakfast are served on a terrace with a wonderful view.
Good price and the personnel are very professional and corteous.

One problem is that air conditioning doesn't work when there is nobody in the room and during the summer you can find the room very hot.

We spent 7 nights at Artefes during July 2011. We particularly enjoyed the breakfast buffet and the extremely good quality of the hotel staff. Particularly the always helpful Murat and Tuncay, who were not just nice persosns but also available to help us in every single thing.
One of them even called a store I need to reach, just to ask if one specific item was available.
They were also open to our requests (a change from our first room to a bigger one).
If I have to mention one problem was the fact that in our second room, the fridge was not working. But we still manage.
Rooms are always clean and we specially enjoyed the magnificent view of the Blue Mosque, from the roof garden. Let me tell you that having your breakfast with enjoyable views of the Sea of Marmara and the Blue Mosque is something really shocking.
The most important asset of Artefes Hotel is its staff. They are very helpful and always making you as a valuable customer.

This hotel is in Sultanahmed, in a good safe location near all the key sights in Istanbul. Well equipped rooms, delicious breakfast and a breakfast room with wonderful views!

The only thing I missed was a bar! This could easily be accommodated on the spacious roof terrace, which is currently woefully under-used. My sister-in-law and I enjoyed a drink at a nearby bar on our way to the hotel in the evenings, when we would much rather have had one on our own rood terrace!

I hope to go back to Istanbul next year and will stay at the same hotel, provided a bar is by then up-and-running.

We stayed at the Artesfes July 30 to August 5, 2011. Very good service from all the staff and they were very helpful. Breakfast was satisfactory and plenty to eat. The terrace view at the top is outstanding and a great place to unwind after a day of sight seeing. They also serve dinner at the terrace. Rooms were compact but more than adequate space. Rooms and bathrooms were clean. AC was satisfactory also. The room stayed cool once we were in the room to activate the system with our key.

Playground next door and the street below got a little loud in the evening (due to Ramadan) so earplugs were handy.

We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: top floor is quieter due to wood constructed floors

We had a great experience at Hotel Artefes. It is close to everything in the Sultanahmet area. The staff were pleasant, hard working, and spoke English well. Rooms were clean, beds were a little on the hard side but fine. Good wifi. The greatest treasure was the roof top terrace with the stunning view of Istanbul and the Marmet Sea. Complementary breakfast up there was a treat. And you can order dinner up there as well. We spent a great five days there and certainly recommend it.
