“Great value mid-range hotel in good location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2013

This is a clean, comfortable hotel in a good location for visiting Istanbul. It is actually on the north side of the tourist area, not right next to the main sites (bazar, mosques palace) like some other places, but just a short walk away. You are also close to the waterside and bridge to the nightlife district around Galata tower.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Wireless worked well. I had a small room but that is pretty standard for the area. Breakfast was adequate with pretty good coffee; a rarity at any hotel.

Would definitely stay again and recommend.

We were so happy with our stay at Erboy hotel.

The main attractions are in a walking distance. If you want to go further by tram - there is a tram stop just a couple a minutes away down the street.

The service in the reception was great - the staff was happily answering all possible questions we had during our stay.

We really recommend this hotel!

We chose the Erboy from the Trip Advisor reviews and were very pleasantly satisfied with our choice. The location was so convenient and from the reception area to the breakfast, we experienced a staff that went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The breakfast was good and the selection every morning more than sufficient. We asked for lowfat milk and the next day they bought it for us. We left very early for the airport and they made the effort to set up breakfast for us. Every time we needed directions, the reception desk was more than helpful, calling restaurants if they needed more information. We would definitely recommend this well located hotel.

Hi,
We stayed there for 4 nights last week (December 2012) and have the following to share
1) Situated about 40minutes from the airport & 1min away from the Gulhane tram station (so you can always just hop, skip & jump back to your room after your roaming for the day)
2) The hotel is located about 5mins walking distance from key attractions like Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia & Blue Mosque
3) The Grand Bazar & Egyptian Bazar are about 10minutes walking in the other direction.
4) The rooms are small and have attached washrooms. The air conditioned in the room is capable of throwing out both hot & cold air (so you are always comfortable)...The hotel is clean and the staff behind the reception are very helpful.
5) Breakfast is a buffet only and includes - cheese, green vegetables like cucumber & tomatoes, a few varieties of cheese, olives, preserves & jams, bread, butter, juice, sausages, boiled & scrambled eggs, muffins, dry fruits & cereals
6) We paid approximately 48Euros a night (after a 7% cash discount) and were very happy with the value we got - the central location and the tidied rooms every night. Wegot picked up for free (at the airport) and the ride back to the airport on a Sunday afternoon cost us 45liras
7) Also, the hotel is surrounded by restaurants on all sides.... so there will be a large number of options (price & cuisine) to make a choice.
8) For those amongst us who may not be able to use the stairs, there is a lift that can take 4 at a time......
If you are budget conscious, stay here.... and if what what we saw was standard service quality, you wont be disappointed
Cheers
