“very nice, perfect location for sightseeing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

very nice property in the heart of the old city, but not noisy. Location close to the attractions in the old city and close to tram stop. The breakfast room (restaurant) has a beautiful view. Staff friendly and polite.

The best location ever. Since I work in tourism, do you rate this hotel as a very good choice. Hotels in the city include the type of small rooms, it is intended for a few nights sleep, I have no objection. An excellent and rich breakfast. Information would be useful to the introduction of our new smoking laws have no right to light a cigar absolutely anywhere, even in restaurants. But what to do. And nothing is more expensive in passion outside of the consumer, due to be paid what you are looking, and I now Istanbul is one of the most beautiful cities I saw.

This has to be the best value boutique hotel in Sultanhamet. Excellent service, good value restaurant, amazing view from the terrace, convenient location. Special mention for Ali, the duty manager, who used his initiative when we had a problem with a transfer company who couldn't be bothered to confirm our return pick-up time: he arranged an alternative that was 30TL cheaper than our original quote. And we got complimentary coffee whilst waiting for our 5.30am pick-up. As for the contributor who complained about the TV service not being good - what on earth did you go to Istanbul for?

This hotel is in a great location and the staff is friendly. It is walking distance to the Grand Bazar and close to all the local attractions like the Blue Mosque. I have saved the shampoo from this hotel just so that I remembered to rate it and mention it on my web page. I felt it was a great find. I stayed here about 6 years or so ago. The shampoo will finally be thrown away. I found the price very fair at that time. I hope it has stayed as such.

We spent 3 nights at Hotel Mina, located in the heart of Sultan Ahmet area. Excellent location and all tourist attractions like Hippodrome, Aya sofia, blue mosque, grand bazar are all at walking distance. We covered all these locations on foot, without a travel guide - saves on a lot of bucks!!
The rooms are superb and v well kept, wifi is good. Room service is excellent, cant get better. The hotel is v safe and cozy, and has a good travel & local sightseeing desk. Staff is also excellent. The highlight being this ever smiling and friendly guy called Mummy by all - really helpful and jolly good fellow!!!
The hotel has a great restaurant overlooking the Istanbul skyline, one of the best views of the city, must spend a few moments on the terrace in the morning and at night!!
Breakfast is great and lavish! This hotel is indeed a Must Stay - highly recommended!!! The next time im going to Istanbul, im certainly cumin back to Hotel Mina for more!! simply loved the place!!

Room Tip: Opt for a room on the higher floors preferably facing the Marmara sea, will give u one of the best v...

Hotel is in a quiet location but is still close to many of the tourist attractions of Istanbul. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Bedrooms are comfortable. Breakfast food is good with plenty of choice, complemented by good views from the restaurant.

Part of package - 2 night. Arrived 4pm told room too cold - what!! - stupid excuse for overbooking. Passed over to another hotel which was very good. Tried to stay there for the second night - told ok to stay there, but when we returned to this other hotel - were told we had to move back. A bit of a pain repacking but not far away and the hotel is ok. Many better around this location - BEST AREA TO STAY IN ISTANBUL.
Good view from upstairs, breakfast ok, staff ok - all average - cant complain except for the overbooking.
