This is an excellent hotel, and the best of all are the people who work there. The room was very comfortable and clean. The shower was great and the location is perfect.
Thank you Ercan and Rurkan, you are the best!!!

The hotel is in the best location a stone Osghir from GRAND BAZAAR and SULTANAMET. All the attractions Osghir walking distance from the hotel.The hotel was very clean with Osghir room and a clean relaxing bathroom .We got to know all the staff by their first name within hours! The staff could not do enough and were only too please to help and assist with a smiley face .Ercan Gurkan Kader Enees Emina and Osghir were only some who took great and personal care of us.
The room was cleaned and linen changed daily and breakfast was what one can ask for.Fresh dairy products fruit cereal and a hot buffet suitable for vegetarians and meat eaters.
I have to say that as a frequent holiday maker Aprilis is probably the best cosy comfortable relaxing hotel I have stayed in
Well done to all the staff

The hotel is superb right in the heart of the grand bazaar and sultanhamet.Its located just behind the Cemberlitas tube station.We stayed for 7 nights and we felt like part of the hotel family.Staff were great and very hospitable in true sense,on stanby for you 24/7.We got to know the staff by their first names and visa versa and felt at ease. Rooms are very spacious and cleaned every day.Breakfast was also very good if you did not find anything on display just ask and the kind kitchen staff will deliver it only with a smile.so much to chose from the hot and cold buffet.This hotel is a newly refurbished establishment and in the heart of the centre stone throw away from all the attractions.I would definitely stay here again and a worthwhile experience.

The hotel is great, we have stayed there for 4 nights in December 2013, location is perfect, breakfast is pretty good, rooms are always clean and well designed. One thing is that none of the taxi drivers know the location of the hotel wee enough, and it took for us about an hour to find out the location.The reason was not because taxi wanted to make some money, as they usually do :), he tired with us :))), he was keep calling the hotel to find out where it is :). Anyways when we found out, we ve been surprised!!!

The rooms were very clean, amenities nice, breakfast delicious, hospitality super!!
Location was perfect for our touring and shopping! We were able to walk all over downtown Istanbul to major attractions. Grand Bazaar only 2 blocks away from hotel. Service was friendly and prompt.

Room Tip: Some rooms have nice balconies.

Me and my family enjoyed some wonderful days at the Aprilis Hotel. Gurkan, our host, was incredible. He really knows how to make your stay as pleasant as possible, always recommending us the best places in town, booking us attractive tours and always going out of his way to make us feel spoiled and welcomed ( wine, original Turkish delight, etc)

The hotel is located really central, literally in less than 10 minuted walk to Hagia Sofia. But still, the area is quiet and you can have a good night rest if you plan to. The rooms are big and clean, and have all the needed facilities.

Another big plus was the breakfast: every day there was something new on the buffet. We especially enjoyed the selection of fruits, pastry and muffins, but the salads, cooked food and continental selection were also impressive.
