Reviewed 1 September 2013

Travelled with 6 other friends. We stayed on to the top floor guest room which was perfect as it accomodated 2 singles and 2 double beds. We also had the adjacent room which was perfect for coming and going between the two and since they were the only rooms on the floor we didnt disturb the other guests either.

Wifi is really poor, may have been our rooms as in the hallway and lobby it was fine.

Location was perfect, the old sights of SultanAhment are a short distance away.

We tried the bfast once and it wasnt to our liking, we are a fussy bunch but im sure for others its fine.

Didnt really see any staff besides at reception however towels were changed and rooms cleaned frequently.

As I said, we were a group of lads on holiday and it was perfect for us no complaints to had.

Room Tip: Top floor is a must ask for the guest room

The workers Alisher Durdiyer, Savas Murat and Aladdin are super nice and helping! From giving you tipps on what to see to just giving you a little smalltalk in the lobby. The restaurant has a beautiful view of Istanbul's skyline :)

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs are more pleasing.

We booked it on last minute as a surprise package. Read all the negative reviews and was not the happiest so had mentally tuned myself to being disappointed. On arrival they happily checked us in early (8 am) and even let us have breakfast for that morning. The room was small but clean and well maintained. Breakfast was good and staff spoke good English and was very helpful. Even after checking out I called the hotel and asked them to book me a ride to the airport on the shuttle which they gladly obliged.

Overall i must say we were surely not disappointed and though it may not qualify as a four star but definitely a very clean and well kept hotel. Was there during Ramadan (end July) and the noise factor was not an issue. Had some construction going out and if not for just peeping out the of the window to actually see the construction we would never have known because of the sound.

I would surely recommend it as a good hotel and would go back and stay and the location was brilliant too.

Really enjoyed our stay at the Ipek. Right in the heart of Old Istanbul - walking distance to all the great sights - only needed transportation to/from the airport. The staff was very accommodating and friendly, especially Umit. Rooms were great - nice job converting this into a boutique hotel. Only advice - the economy rooms are really for an individual traveler. If traveling with two, best to spend the few lira/euro more for the larger room.

We booked 3 night in Ipek Palas as a part of ''secret hotels'' thing on lastminute.com. It had really good review and we decided to take a risk and we didn't expect much...and we were so nicely surprised !! It was of very high standard botique hotel with really nice customer service, very good quality food and just perfect location !
Our room was actually very little, but it was well maintained and clean every day very well. AC was working ok, windows were opening and the shower had super good pressure !
We had B&B option and i must say they had big selection of foods- both of light/continental stuff (cereals/cheese, veg etc), and more local stuff like heavy mayo salads and traditional meat.They also offer free afternoon tea from 4 to 5, which we used to attend, as the rooftop restaurant where it is served has very nice view over the city and the hotel is so close to the main tourist spots, that it was easy for us to just pop in for a cuppa and rest a bit.
Location of Ipek is just perfect, especially when you stay in stanbul short time and u really need to be in the center of action. If that is the case- Ipek Palas is the place to be.
The good thing is also the fact that most of the front office staff speaks quite good english, so there's no problem with communication.
Like in still many hotels wii fii has different network on each floor- so u may need to switch between the networks according to location (lobby, 5th floor etc), but at least it works not too badly...
I could really recommend Ipek Palas. Istanbul is such a great city and i feel i really need to go back, if i do-i'd not hesitate to stay in Ipek again :):)
