Stone Hotel
Ranked #527 of 1,159 Hotels in Istanbul
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Stone Hotel is on a quiet street about 5-7 min walking distance from the Sultanahmet Metro stop. Hotel is small, as are most in that area. Hotel clerks were very helpful, especially with knowing how much we should expect to pay for a taxi/transport to certain areas. This helped us to negotiate with the taxi driver to know we were getting a fair price. Room was kept clean. Good choices for the included breakfast. Wireless internet also included in room. Bed was hard to me, but I found all beds to be the same on this trip. No pillow-tops! For our 3rd person, they brought a single bed into the room with the double. Very close to so many restaurants, shops, attractions!

we stayed in istanbull for 1 week in may and where very happy whit our stay at the stone hotel. the staff is extreamly helpful and you can always ask them about good food and interesting side's that you would normally not find in a traditional tourist guild. the rooms where very clean and had everything you whould expect from a tradisional hotel room. the breakfast is not extensive but more than sufisiant. the hotel is lokated at only 2 minets of the blue mosque and the hard and center of the old city.
one thing to note is that the rooms are not compleatly sound ploof. for we had some extreamly loud nabours. ofcours i must ad to this that this was most likely and exeption for i douth any hotel room is sound proofed to the amound of noise these particilar guist were making.
an lastly be aware that the hotel is located next to an active mosque that starts at 4 in the morning. on the other hand it would be hard to find any hotel in the old city that dousn't have this problem.

The hotel fit out budget and expectations perfectly. All of the major tourist sites are within a 5-15 minute walk but the hotel is still out of the way of the busiest roads. There is a mosque across the street, but I slept with earplugs and didn't hear a thing.

The room and washroom were a good size and very clean; the furniture may need an upgrade in some eyes, but this was less important to us.

The morning buffet had lots of different tasty dishes, AND it was open until 10:30 AM; great for those of us who don't set an alarm on holidays.

The front desk manager/concierge was incredibly helpful with logistical issues and provided excellent and very discreet service. Without his quick thinking, we would have missed our departure flight.

Me, my boyfriend and sister all stayed at this hotel. We found it incredibly well located, literally a five minute walk to the Blue Mosque, it was a beautiful thing to walk by every time we stepped out. The hotel staff was incredibly friendly and helpful in every aspect.

A quick warning, though: the free breakfast is all cold. Even the hardboiled eggs are chilly. If your typical breakfast is a muffin with tea and cereal, you'll be fine, but otherwise you'll be in for a disappointment. The regular menu, though, has very good prices (think USD$7 for an entree) and delicious flavors. It's also close to many small restaurants and street vendors.

Since it's so close to the Blue Mosque, expect to get woken up before dawn by the calls to prayer.

All in all, it was a great experience and a great value.

Super cute hotel. The staff were all extremely helpful and attentive. One of my friends ended up coming down with the flu while we were in Istanbul, and the staff kept asking if there was anything they could do to help. So sweet!! The hotel is also in an amazing location - within a 7 mins (top) walk from the Blue Mosque. Will definitely stay in this hotel whenever I am in Istanbul!

Amazing location - all of the main sites are within walking distance. The food and service were very good also. The rooms were absolutely spotless. The hotel provided pretty much all you could need, and also a lot of really good advice. We had not done much research before going to Istanbul, so their advice really made all the difference. We liked it so much that we booked it again.
