“Very good central Istanbul hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

This is a reasonably priced, quite easy to find hotel within walking distance of all the central sights. The staff are immensely helpful and friendly, which is what you need in a strange place. The breakfast lasted us through to dinner in the evening - I must mention the really delicious deep yellow fried eggs in particular. If you like a firm mattress, you will be happy with the bed. We were on the top floor, just under the rooftop terrace, so could see the sea, and get some breeze into the room. The desk staff can't be faulted: when we needed to check in with the airline to return home, Adil passed over the computer to us, and helped us navigate through all the Turkish questions. Although the muezzin starts up at 5am, that is a feature of the location, and we were able to go back to sleep again afterwards. I'd certainly recommend the Aslan to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a single bed as well as a double, then you will have room to spread out a bit...

the hotel itself is pretty basic but the location is awesome, the bed and the room are awesome. bathrooms maybe a little spartans, could have done better if I could have opened the windows, but in the end it's been a good time. good breakfast, really awesome people in the staff. kind and professional

Not a real flash hotel, but who wants that in the Old City. Clean and comfortable and a wonderful breakfast on the rooftop terrace in view of the Blue Mosque. Really friendly, genuine people running the place who cant do enough for you. Fantastic location just walking distance to all the wonderful places Istanbul has to offer. Highly recommended.

For the price we paid, we didn't expect much from Hotel Aslan....but we were pleasantly surprised. Very basic rooms, the wardrobe needed repairing, the loo nearly fell off the wall every time one of us sat on it and the 'balcony' opened onto a concrete wall.....but, it was clean and the welcome genuinely friendly. The location is perfect - only a few minutes walk from all the lovely things you need to see and the buzz of the local eateries. The staff at breakfast watched eagle eyed to ensure you had enough breakfast (but not more than you should !) and made eggs to order (or 'egg' in the case of the menemem...). All in all a very good breakfast. We were out all day long and spent very little time in the rooms, so it was actually fine for us, and we would stay again. Great value for money.

This hotel is located on the best tourist street in istanbul. Many quaint buildings and street level restaurants. Within walking distance of all the major sights. We had the base room, which was very small but only cost $49.00 per night including tax booked well in advance on Expedia. If the price was over 100.00 I would probably choose one of the many other boutique hotels on the street. Only 18 rooms with a roof deck which housed the breakfast area. Standard fare but with made to order eggs and omelets. Service was good. Would stay again

We were a group of 7 active ladies. We enjoyed the central location in the old town with 5-10 minutes to the blue mosque, Aya Sofia, Topkapi palace, great hamam, very many restaurants, shops and bazars etc.
The breakfast restaurant at the roof terrace was very good (wide local fresh selection) and it was so nice to sit outside and with a nice view. It was also OK to have cold water, coffee/tea or own drink at hours when the breakfast restaurant was not in service.
The staff/owners was very friendly and helpful with reservations, recommendations and all practical matters.
At the price we got at booking.com I doubt you can get anything better!
The price of the central location is that you will have a "free wake-up call" when the morning prayers start. I doubt that you can avoid this in Istanbul with +200 mosques.
