Swayed by the really beautiful pictures on booking website, and the convenient location made us go for the Hippodrome Hotel. Well, Istambul is a little tricky for a the first time. Most of these pictures are of their sister property, across the road Azade Hotel where you have to go for their complimentary breakfast. There is no view to speak of from the Hippodrome hotel! It is purely a very basic functional accommodation, with no character to speak of, but yes at a central location in the Sultanhamet. It is the area which has everything- The Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia and the Grand Bazaar, and all of these are at a convenient walking distance.
Pros: Location, friendly staff. Upgraded us to the family suite which was nice!! Room had all basic amenities and was clean!
Cons: Pictures on their website and other major booking sites tell that they have a good photographer, but these are deceptive pictures so don't go by them at all! The area is infested with touts and sellers pulling you in their shops/restaurants, to rip you off, so a little tough to navigate around.
Overall: Expensive, but not a bad property if were not expecting what you saw in the pictures. Its basic and purely functional to sleep the night before you get out again to explore the fascinating town of Istambul

Room tip: Not too much in the rooms anyway! But I suppose a front facing would be better!

The location is perfect, near Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, restaurants and not far away from trem stations. It is also quite, since the hotel is located in Sultanahmet Old City.
It is a friendly hotel, small but with cozy room, feels at home... Restaurant for daily breakfast is located at (shared with) Best Western Hotel.
The staffs are so helpful and friendly.

My wife and I stayed at this Hotel, for a 5-day mini-break in April. Booked through BA, this was a lovely little place, located in the old city, and a stone's throw from the Blue Mosque, and Hagia Sophia Museum. The staff were all very hepful, (especially Hasan), and available all times. Whether it was catching the tram, or going for a walk by the sea, this place is ideally located for both, as getting to either was only a few minutes walk. Breakfast in the sister Hotel across the road, was both wholesome and plentiful; and the views from the breakfast room were just super. In summary, a lovely place and good value for money. No hesitation at all in recommending this place.

I absolutely loved staying at this hotel,compared to the one I was staying in previously.The staff (Special thanks!Caner,Mesut,Arzu)were friendly,smiling and helpful at all times,especially the staff on the front desk who were always full of information.I have read the other comments about this hotel and it’s a shame that there were a few who were not happy with it,I’m sure that wires must have crossed somewhere along the line.found the stay to be very homely and comfortable.Breakfast on the terrace was relaxing and a perfect start to the day.There is so much to see in Istanbul which will make you go back for more.All the staff at the hotel speak good English,and are ready to help with any queries and information on places to eat and drink.I suggest tours for sightseeing in Istanbul.

Everything about this hotel was wonderful.The people (Arzu,Caner,Hasan,İlker and bellboy) the room, the location, the price, the view, the breakfast. Everything was wonderful. The staff there were so helpful in giving information about places to see and things to do. Our vacation was very nice in Istanbul.

Room tip: Perfect vacation.
