Eurostars Hotel Old City
Ranked #343 of 1,175 Hotels in Istanbul
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 January 2014 via mobile

Very centrally located in the old city . If you want the grand bazaar, the blue mosque and Sophia... they're minutes away.

Clean and modern rooms, awesome shower. Excellent staff service and around the corner from fabulous Turkish delights.

Pricing not excessive.
Breakfast average due to the effort of meeting western requirements and in contrast to the wide array of choices outside the hotel.

Would definitely stay there on the next visit.

We stayed in the hotel for 4 nights with my husband. It was nice, clean, located in the historical area. The breakfast was excellent and the staff was extremely kind. I would recommend this hotel during on semester in Istanbul. Next time we will stay here again!!!! Ildiko

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. We picked the hotel based on location, price, and reviews. I debated whether to give it 3 or 4/5. I think it'd be more of a 3.5.

Pros:

Great location-Can walk everywhere in the old town and to the Galata Tower area or easily take a tram just out the door.

Breakfast-A large, delicious selection.

Staff-Very friendly and helpful.

Airport transfer-It can be arranged for less money than what I found at other hotels and cheaper/same than taking a cab, based on traffic.

Wifi-Available everywhere and fast connection.

Room Amenities-Nice toiletries, coffee, tea, and water provided free of charge.

Cons:

Smoking-Hotel is partially smoking. The first room we were shown smelled like smoke, despite being a non-smoking room. It was no problem changing rooms, but it was not as nice and there were cigarette butts all over outside our window. We also smelled cigarettes periodically.

Thin Walls-We could hear everything going on next door and in the halls.

Room Service-We tried to order it, but were told everyone had gone home. It was only about 6 pm. Their fliers didn't indicate a start or stop time.

Showers-They start flooding after a few minutes. I had to shut off the water to let the conditioner sit in for a bit. I guess that's a hotel-wide issue.

Room size-While the lobby is spacious, the rooms are tiny, even for European standards.

Also, I had an interesting experience with a staff member when I went to ask questions about payment and about a return airport transfer. He asked where my husband was... I'm a corporate travel coordinator and everything was booked in my name. After realizing his mistake he was apologetic and offered me tea :)

We stayed at the Eurostars Hotel for one night following a two week cruise of some ports in Turkey and the Greek Isles. After disembarking the ship we arrived at the hotel a little after 09h00 and, despite the regular check-in time of 14h00, we were immediately offered a room. We experienced this same level of service and hospitality at the previous hotel we stayed at prior to our cruise. Must be a Turkish thing and certainly one that many western establishments can learn from!!
We think we may have been given a better room than we had reserved - a triple with a good queen size bed plus a single that we obvioulsy did not need. However, as a triple room it was large and spacious, comfortable and well equipped with a very modern TV. The bathroom was also spacious with all the amenities one needs for a short stay.
The Eurostars is situated just off a busy street in the Old City and despite our room on the third floor overlooking the endless traffic, was surprisingly quiet. It is ideally located withing easy walking distance from most of the major attractions of the Old City.
Hotel staff were at all times obliging and couteous. We had a very late flight back home and while we were still obviously expected to check out by midday, the reception staff were more than willing to keep our luggage in safe keeping until we schlepped off to the airport at about 19h00.
We love Istanbul and would certainly consider staying at the Eurostars again if we ever revisit this amazing, historic city.

Room Tip: Our room on the third floor overlooking a busy street was surprisingly quiet.

We stayed at the "Eurostars old city for three nights in July. Rooms were very clean. Service was excellent and the best part was the location. It is with walking distance from all the tourist attractions. Don't mind staying here again.

We chose this hotel for the location---access to the Old City area and also to the Ferry Docks/Spice Bazaar area. Very nice accommodations---wonderful bathroom. The breakfast buffet was very ample and delicious. The reviews I read earlier in 2013 must have helped---as the breakfast was more than adequate. Nice breakfast room and staff extremely helpful. Many restaurants close to hotel! Even a McDonald's as you walk to Bosphorus docks. The Orient Express Train Station is close by---being restored! Would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: We had a street side room---5th floor. Noise was NOT a problem.
