“Excellent hotel with amazing staff”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

I stayed in the hotel with my wife . We enjoyed all our staying.

The staff are all friendly and helpful even Ersin upgraded our room to the sea view one

The hotel is perfectly located to all sights in the Old City and a short walk to the tram, which can take you anywhere else.The breakfast buffet is my best ever, even there were pork meat , we didn't expect in Turkey.

Highly recommend!

Ersin is the most friendly person I have ever met. He is a nice person and very sociable. He is very helpful. I am sure that you will like him a lot when you meet him. The hotel is good, as well as the location. If you are are planning to stay in sultan Ahmet you should try the hotel, and don't forget to ask about Ersin.

We stayed at the Celine Hotel in Istanbul from 31st July to 9th August, with our two children (19 and 15). We were pleasantly surprised to know that the staff had given us two adjoining rooms, which made the stay vey comfortable and homely. Celine Hotel is beautiful and welcoming, and it certainly made our stay in Istanbul a memorable one!

The location was amazing and very convenient, as the hotel was just 5 minutes away from the Hippodrome, the magnificent Blue Mosque and impressive Aya Sophia. Celine Hotel was right in the heart of Old Istanbul, with beautiful cobbled streets and traditional Ottoman-style buildings all around it.

The Hotel itself was an Ottoman mansion, dating from the 19th century, redone exquisitely for modern times. As we entered the hotel for the first time, the beauty of it certainly made an impact. Celine Hotel has Ottoman-style high roofs, adorned with beautiful décor, and exudes a very homely atmosphere. It is a boutique hotel with 14 rooms, kept clean by the diligent housekeeping staff. The rooms were beautifully decorated as well, with high roofs and a large window, and a very comfortable bed and spotlessly clean bathrooms. There was a TV with many different channels, and free Wi-Fi provided as well. The bathrooms were decorated with beautiful Turkish tiles, and provided for a very good shower!

The breakfast was served on an exquisitely-decorated patio, adorned with intricate Turkish tiles and an impressive glass ceiling. The breakfast options were many, and could be adjusted according to personal taste by the wonderful & cheerful chef and staff (Dil-ruba).

The staff itself were immensely helpful and extremely kind, especially Ersin, Tuna & Ramzan, and went out of their way to make Celine Hotel as comfortable and homely as possible. From the moment we checked-in up to the time we checked- out we were continually impressed & touched by the friendliness an helpfulness of the staff. They made our stay extremely comfortable by helping with various arrangements to maximize our enjoyment and exposure to the sights and culture of this stunningly beautiful & vibrant city. to We are already planning our next trip to Istanbul and our future stay at Celine Hotel. It is like a home away from home!

We will definitely tell all of our friends and family to stay at Celine Hotel when visiting Istanbul and would strongly recommend it to anyone reading this review!

Thank you Celine hotel for making our family holiday a truly memorable one!

My friends and I stayed here last week and was pleasantly surprised. The front desk service was excellent and the rooms although small was very clean and came with an official welcome letter and a fruit platter. They always called a taxi for us every time we needed one and the hotel is approx 5 mins walk to the Blue Mosque.
Great location and great service!!
