“if they give you room 112: run away screaming!”
Reviewed 25 September 2011

the hotel is almost nice, but there are lots of details which just are no-good.
Our room there: room 112. Little, dark, small. The window faces an internal cloister full of stairs and the worst imaginable smell from the kitchen. Continuous noise from the electric motors of all the air conditioners of all the other rooms never stops and is not even defeated by fully closing the window. And if you do close the window you will need to turn on the air conditioning in your room: noisy, and pointed right directly on your bed, so that either you die from the extreme heat (if you turn it off) or from the extreme cold (if you turn it on).
We asked to change rooms: not possible. :(
too bad Barin: there are much better places in which to sleep in Istanbul.

The hotel reallly worth the money u pay for it , even they have gaved us the most smallest room they have but i must admit we have arrived 8 in the morning and they gave me the room at 10.30 which was very good touch from they part so ii didnt want to ask for anything more .
the staff is ok not that much friendly and not bad they are so professional in dealing with guest and the reception speak good english , so no problem in communicate
the breakfast is what do u expect from a decent 3 star hotel , is very good and tasty , orange juice was excellent as well as coffeee was ok
the hotel is putting slipers , own safe in the room , LCD screen which i never find those 3 things in 3 stars hotel , so finallly i must rate the hotel as nearly 4 star in term of rooms & service with a very very affordable price
Thanks again Barin Hotel for your good image you left in us
P.S the smallest room i was in it was rooom#102( but honestly teh bathroom was large)

I would definitely recommend this hotel, it was clean, the rooms were beautiful and comfortable, the staff was very friendly and the breakfast was excellent.

I probably won´t be returning to the Hotel Barin any time soon, however, because of the location. It is just a bit too far from the major tourist attractions. You can walk to the Grand Bazaar easily, or take the tram to all the big sites, but if I could do it all over again I would definitely stay in Sultanahmet. Furthermore, the area surrounding the hotel wasn´t the most appealing: it´s full of shops selling knockoff retail!!

We were assigned an excellent room, in fact, a family suite with a balcony overlooking the street, at a very good price. Good location ( though next time I would try the new part of Istanbul) at walking distance from the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Great Bazaar and Hagia Sophia. Polite staff too.

The hotel is very well located - close to the main road (tram and metro to airport) but far enough from noise. Rooms are very clean and breakfast is excellent. Hotel staff are courteous. I highly recommend it.

This hotel is very well kept, good location near grand basar and serail, although in the russian quarter. Good breakfast, nice restaurant around the corner. Tram stop to the ferry station easily reachable. The only disadvantage (in winter) is, that you cannot switch off the heating and have to keep the windows shut during the night (noise!), so that the room is quite hot all the time. In summer the AC should work.

The wireless on the computer of the hotel does not work, if you bring your laptop, it is slow, but works.
