my partner and myself decided to spend some days around new years eve in istanbul and as we had to look over costs I made a big research about hotels in istanbul before we decided for this hotel.
Our criterias were 1. costs (if possible under 50€ / double room), 2. cleaness ( I am very sensitive with dirt and especially smell), 3. location. If you cannot find out via the internet if the hotel is really clean and does not smell I concentrated on 1/3. I found this hotel via hrs est. 2 months in advance and the price was great (34,-€ per double room incl. breakfast), location was good as well (near old bazar in the old part of the city). They had a very nice homepage and the on the phone they were friendly, so we booked.
Here our remarks:
1. Location is great if you like old and more historical part of Instanbul. You have very good transportation (a tram station nearby) bringing you to all the important parts of Istanbul. To the great bazar, blue mosque / hagia sophia you can walk.
Nevertheless you do not have much restaurants, bars etc... nearby and in the evening is more quiet and streets are empty.
2. Rooms: small but very clean and not smelly at all! Nice furniture, windows to open, flat screen tv with int. programms and an own bathroom (small but very clean as well)
3. Hotel: great lobby, nice staff and the breakfast was not that special but ok!
So regarding the price and the performance it was not high luxus but for the price really great!!
