Stayed here for five nights in November. We had what appeared to be a new or recently refurbished twin room which, although it had no view, was excellent in every other way. The hotel was spotless, staff very pleasant and we had the best food of our stay in the restaurant. It is hard to believe they can provide this quality for such a modest cost.

Recently stayed at the Erboy Hotel (december 2012) - would highly recommend this hotel to stay in. Great location, very easy walking distance to all main attractions and even just if you want to meander around. Staff were very friendly and approachable and nothing seemed to much trouble. Breakfast selection was good and the food was always tasty. Really enjoyed the little newsletter that was on the breakfast table each morning. Rooms were small but we already knew that based on trip advisor comments but that didnt bother us. Although on the small side the rooms were clean and comfortable. There was noise during the night on most nights, so room walls are a bit thin at times, but once again it wasnt really bothersome. We travelled as a couple but would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

If you're looking for a clean, comfortable hotel located within easy walking distance of all the landmark buildings of Old Istanbul at a reasonable price- then this is the place for you.

Free wifi is superb quality- good enough to Skype home.

The staff are extremely helpful and even phoned our airport transfer (that we had booked elsewhere) to chase them on our behalf when they were five mins late, due to the snow. On this note, it's worth knowing that the hotel operates its own transfer. If you email them, they will give you a price. We would have booked direct with them, had we known this to make the trip smoother.

I did Christmas season at Istanbul and choose to stay 5 nights at Erboy Hotel. It is excellent budget hotel, very good service and fine buffet breakfast with good selection of turkish cheeses.
Rooms are small but enough and understandable if you stay at the oldest part of the city.
The personal is great and treat you like home guest.
Recommended for staying at Sultanhamet with all sightseeing points reachable by feet and metro stop down the street.

Room Tip: Front room are quieter.

Stayed on the 5th floor - one of two rooms only. Accessible by elevator to 4th floor, then a short flight of stairs. We had requested a quiet room and it did not disappoint No adjoining room noise (my pet hate). It had all the necessary requirements, good bed, dark drapes, climate control etc. No complaints at all.

Great Location -friendly area within walking distance to most attractions. It was easy to trek back with our bazaar purchases and drop them off so we could keep going. so you don't have to plan on being out all day and can have a little downtime in the afternoon if you wish. Tram at the end of the road, which is easy to use. Lovely little mini market and chemist/pharmacy over the road for necessities.

Breakfast was great, plenty of variety to suit European and Australian requirements. Nice fresh fruit etc. Staff very attentive and polite without being intrusive.

The hotel also arranged to collect us from the airport and gave us complimentary dinner our first night, so we were able to settle in after a long flight. They also had a very reasonable airport shuttle service (about 5 euro) back to the airport.

Happy to stay at the Erboy again, hopefully in the near future.

Room Tip: We had one of two rooms on the fifth floor -note that elevator only went to the fourth floor

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.
