“Perfect place to spend great holidays”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

Great location with all you need in the hotel to spend a wonderful journey.... The staff is very helpful and attentive to all customers' needs.... The fact it's very closed to all the important historical monuments helped me a lot... I could visit all of them in one day. They're very caring and warmly welcoming people in this hotel... The accommodation is of very good quality. Everything very clean and just perfect.... The traditional Turkish breakfast is another point I've truly appreciated. Guys if you're passing by Istanbul you know where to go... Ilkay Hotel !

Prime location indeed with all attractions within waking distance and hotel itself is w easy to find. However there are plethora of hotels in this district that made these less of competitive advantage.

Being an old building, bathroom door was faulty and every time one tried to get out could not get out by oneself- had to be rescued by your roommate. Water provided had heavy smell and taste of chlorine. Lastly bed was so creaky that every turn woke us up.

Breakfast was nothing memorable with no hot food.

Generally the staff was indeed very helpful and nice. They helped carry luggage through the maze of corridor and lifts. Wifi was adequate and satisfactory.

Most of the clientele was young students, groups of them.

Overall we found better hotels with same price and decided move on.

A very good value considering that Hotels are not cheap in Istambul. Location is excellent. Rooms are quite small, but very clean, and they have the necessary. Staff is very helpful. I would come back and i recommend this place.

First time in Istanbul, and what a great experience.
First thing we met in the hotel was the clerk and his friendly staff, we were offered apple tea and got a review of the area attractions. Istanbul is a huge city with lots of noise, but the hotel's location was perfect, the little traffic you could hear was from the trams that ran past just outside the hotel. It was a truly been an experience beyond our expectations and we highly recommend Istanbul as a whole and the hotel in particular, enjoy.
