“Amazing hotel”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

This hotel is fantastic. Its perfectly situated for the main attractions. Blue Mosque and Haggia Sophia and the grand bazaar are about 15 minute walk away depending how often you stop to look at the shops. The hotel has been refurbished and it looks fantastic. The decor of the hotel is great and makes the hotel look amazing. Its very clean and elegant and you can tell the staff take pride in their hotel. The variety of rooms is great. There was four of us staying at the hotel, we booked a quadruple room. I thought this might be a bit small but it wasn't. It was really spacious even with all 4 of us in the room. The staff were very helpful. If we needed any help the staff would help us without hesitation. They were really helpful to me in booking an airport transfer. They even suggested some great things to do whilst in Istanbul. Language was a bit of a barrier with some staff but it was ok as there was always someone else to help. There are amazing facilities at this hotel. If I have the opportunity to revisit Istanbul I would definitely stay here again. Well worth the price and highly deserving of its ratings. Thank you Aprilis Hotel :)

We stayed there from 28.12.12 to 02.01.14. Hotel is a new hotel and the location is fabulous. It is very close to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Grand Bazar.The tram station is just 40-50 meters away from hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We booked a room for 4 people but when we arrived they said that they don't have any quadruple room available and for one night gave us 2 double room without any extra charge. Very friendly staff and good service (especially thanks to Gurkan for being helpful).Breakfast was quite excellent. Overall I really recommend this hotel. Very nice place to stay in Istanbul.

I stayed there for three nights with my family. Staff was very cooperative, breakfast was excellent but my suggestion to hotel is to change menu everyday. Free Turkish tea all day. Sauna was excellent. Very close to tram service & close to all historical spots. Affordable transport service through hotel. As I did only to go to attaturk with larger van less price whatever I paid when I reached to hotel by taxi at the airport. I recommended this hotel as a best family hotel.

Great little hotel in a perfect location, friendly helpful staff, clean comfy rooms and excellent breakfast buffet, highly recommended. Right next to the blue mosque, hagia sophia and the hippodrome, surrounded by excellent restaurants and cafes, but still in a lovely quiet neighbourhood

We are group of friends, stayed at Aprilis Hotel in January and we all were happy with this hotel. We arrived the hotel quite early. They let us checked in early for 2 rooms of out the 3 rooms we booked; the other room was not available yet till later. They even let us having breakfast which was quite out of my expectation. The hotel is in a quiet street and at walking distance to all attractions; the rooms were very clean and enough space for 2 people; good free wifi in rooms; there was no noise around, mattress and pillows were good; breakfast was standart especially the grill breads and the olives were so nice compared to other hotels we stayed during this holiday trip.All the staff were really nice and professional.

This is the second time for me to stay in this hotel. I like just about everything about this hotel. Excellent location, very good breakfast, price is reasonable and the staff are super nice and friendly.

It was kind of noisy in my last stay, because another hotel was being built across the street.

Definitely, I'd be staying there if I go back to the old town of Istanbul.

Room Tip: I'd choose the connected rooms if you have small children. Also, get the street view.
