“Good value for money and excellent location!”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

PROs: The hotel has a very tasteful and cosy design, modern with a touch of tradition. Most hotels in Sultanahmet are usually quite outdated and kitschy.
Position is superb: tramway practically at the door step, all sightseeing attraction at very short walking distance (Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, Grand Bazar), many restaurants and souvenir shops around, safe and frequented area.
In 20 min by tram you are in lively Beyoğlu (Istiklal caddesi) where you can find loads of bars, shops and restaurants - open till late and frequented also by locals, much more budget and of better quality compared to places in the historical centre.
Traditional buffet breakfast with fresh fruit, cheese and vegetables, yogurt, jam, honey, simit (ring-shaped bread covered with sesame seeds) and cereals. Breakfast room and evening bar is on top roof with very nice annexed terrace overlooking the Blue Mosque.
Light was plentiful in the room thanks to 5 windows overlooking the Blue Mosque. Rooms and premises have WiFi, but signal is very low.
Everything was very clean. Check-in and check-out times are flexible and luggage can be kept in the hotel after check-out. The airport can be reached in 1 hour by subway + tram, just consider that it can be really crowded.
CONs: Our standard rooms had a tiny shower and sink in a tiny bathroom. Managers should consider minor intervention to maintain the state of the rooms, otherwise delicious! Not much space to store luggage content. Better WiFi connection would be appreciated. First floor has to be reached using the stairs, then the elevator is available, but the receptionist helps with the luggage.

We have stayed at this well located and friendly hotel on three separate occasions. Although the rooms are compact and simple, there is everything you might need . The Hotel entrance is tucked away from the street and has a comfortable relaxing lounge. Wifi reception is good. The fabulous roof terrace has wonderful views across to the Bosphorus and a lavish delicious breakfast is served daily - unfortunately this also attracts feral cats (probably because the staff feed them ) resulting in the potted plants on the terrace being used as cat toilets - more than a bit off-putting whilst eating breakfast.
However, this minor irritation aside, Hotel Nomade is a welcoming gem in the heart of Istanbul and we have always enjoyed our stays here.

I dont have enough strong words to describe my terrible experience of this hotel. Let me start by saying: you get what you pay for! The room rate was dirt cheap and so was the hotel and room. I made a booking as a single traveller expecting a normal room with a single rate supplement. Well not in this place (cannot call this a hotel). I arrived very late at night and was showed (up 2 flights of stairs - no lift) to the tinest, dreariest little room with a SINGLE bed in the corner. The bathroom was so small that you had to stand in the shower to try and use the tiny little basin to brush teeth. To add insult to injury, my shower did not work and nobody cared! My bag almost did not fit in the room, thats how small it was!! The room had a TINY window overlooking a staircase and right above a busy restaurant.

My arrival was so late that I had no option but to stay in this terrible tiny room with the tiny single bed for one night. I checked out the next morning and found a lovely hotel just around the corner.

If I could I would have not even selected 1 star rating for this dump. The ONLY thing that was worth the 40 Euro I paid, was the breakfast the next morning.

I stayed with a friend at the Hotel Nomade for three nights. It was perfect for our needs which were: location in Sultanamet close to the Blue Mosque; reasonable price; small, friendly atmosphere. This hotel provided all three. With a roof garden restaurant overlooking the Blue Mosque the location was perfect. My half of the bill came to £225 which included three nights B&B, all transfers and one evening meal with drinks. The atmosphere was friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Staff were efficient and kind. All spoke English. I would recommend strongly provided you are happy with a small bedroom and bathroom. One thing I found tricky was glass doors on the en-suite. Not much privacy and a bit dangerous, I thought. I would have preferred a 'proper' door. Otherwise - great.

Room Tip: Five stories high so choose lower floor if you don't like climbing stairs!

If you are visiting a city for the first time a hotel that is near the key historical sights would be beneficial. Also one that is easily reached from the airport helps. Well Nomade scores on both these points. A metro and tram journey to Sultanahmet and a walk of no more than a hundred metres brings you to a warm welcome and the view of the Blue Mosque from the roof terrace is nothing short of breathtaking. The rooms are clean and comfortable and breakfast is just the energy fix that is needed for a day pounding the streets of this fascinating City. The nearby restaurants of Mosaik and Khorasani are excellent. In short, we really look forward to our return.

This hotel is in an ideal location for exploring the Sultanahmet area of Istanbul. The rooms are small but clean with a tiny en-suite wetroom-type bathroom. You have breakfast on a rooftop terrace with a spectacular view over the Blue Mosque and the Sea of Marmaris (see photo) and you can also have a drink up there in the evening.
We found the staff really helpful, especially one night when we returned to the hotel and there was a power cut! We were lent a high-powered torch and they took our luggage up to the room for us.
The tram station is literally 50 metres away but we walked everywhere. The Grand Bazaar and the Spice Market are within easy reach and I recommend a boat trip on the Bosporus to give an overview of the area.

In the center of Sultanahmet, you have easy access to every interesting point of Istanbul, the historical center, also easy access to every transport. NIce and lovely lobby and a, helpful people (speaking fluently english/french). Some could say the rooms are little, I should say very well arranged though... It is a boutique hotel, do not forget. Generous breakfast, too, with great view ovr the city. I enjoyed it!
