“Nice place to stay”
Reviewed 6 February 2014 via mobile

Good place to have rest, is quiet, clean and comfortable. Really near to Istanbul turist top attractions.

Transportation is convenient as well, you can take the train just reaching the street, then you can go everywhere you want.

Definitely recommendable.

I really recommend this hotel for travels who come to Istanbul for sightseeing, the price is very reasonable comparing with the quality of the hotel, but the best part is the location which allow you to visit by foot the majority of the sights and gives you access to the public transportation system.

Enjoyed our short stay. Walking distance to the attractions especially the Blue Mosque where we could hear the call to prayers (Athaan) and attend 5 daily prayers. Lots of restaurants and kebabs! Tram ride very convenient to get around town and the cruise to Princes Island was lovely albeit very cold when we went.
Nice Indian restaurant opposite the hotel although quite expensive compared to London!
Rooms, sauna and gym very clean. Selection of breakfast limited and usually the same every day.
Good for first timer to get the feel of traditional turkey and it's history!

Room Tip: interconnecting room was good for family of 5 on the top floor

The location of the hotel is excellent. It is within walking distance of all the major attractions in Sultanahmet which is where I would recommend a first timer to Istanbul should stay. The rooms are clean and the toilet has all the Western amenities one would be happy to have. At the beginning of our trip toTurkey we stayed there for 4 days in a tiny room with a great view. Upon return to Istanbul, the hotel gave us a bigger more spacious room. Breakfast is included and it is adequate. There is a television in the room, but there are not English channels except for BBC news. The employees don't speak English except for the front desk receptionist. However, all the employees are very nice which made our stay pleasant. You can easily access this hotel from the airport via public transportation which is a real bonus.

Room Tip: There are rooms with sea views which is really nice but some might be VERY small. It's all a ma...

This beautiful small hotel was a former prison somewhere in Istanbul's past. The food, service, staff was excellent!! Most 4 season properties are much bigger and we liked the small cozy feel of this hotel. The location was perfect as it was 2-3 blocks from the Blue Mosque and Haga Sophia. Centrally located to all restaurants and other fun sites on the European side of Istanbul.
We stayed 5 nights in a beautiful room and did not want to leave. Note: we are Americans and while some US tourists will not venture to Istanbul, we can say it was safe and we were well treated by the staff!!

From the subject of my review you can guess that I was very pleased with my stay at this nice small hotel (all hotels are small in Sultan Ahmet) which is walking distance from the Grand Bazaar, St, Sophia, the Blue Mosque, and Top Kapi. Anything else can be reached by the tram which passes right next to the hotel (Cheberlitas station). The hotel is very clean, newly remodeled, has very friendly staff and generous breakfast.

Having a hard time finding reasonable accommodations for a family of four, our expectations were mixed but the Aprilis hotel exceeded them by far. Our room was spacious considering that most hotels in the area are tiny, and had a beautiful view of the Vosporus. The location was perfect for what we wanted to see and saved a bundle by walking to most of the tourist attractions. Eminonu and the Spice Market are a few tram stops over although a couple of times we chose to walk and experience the street leading to the Vosporus. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and arranged for all our transfers from our hotel and the airport at very good prices. Nothing more to ask. We are already looking forward to our next stay at Aprilis!

Room Tip: Stay in the higher floor and to the back of the hotel to enjoy view of the Vosporus.

Being in Turkey is itself is a good experience. Well in Istambul, staying ln Aprillis hotel is the next interesting one. Room is very clean also are the toilet. We were given the choice of views to our likeing. Sea view was ours. The hotel might not be high only 5 floors but the location was very conveniently located. Trem rides to almost all interesting places. Thanks to the knowledgeable Mr Gurkan, Mr Oner and Co. Food was good. Hospitatily even better. Looking foward to being there the next visit.
