“Great little hotel”
Reviewed 17 November 2013 via mobile

Great location, excellent service, clean and comfortable, good breakfast with lovely view from roof terrace. A great find. Close to the grand bazaar, main mosques and tram. The pick up and return to airport was easy and recommended - money well spent. Recommend Onbasilar kebab on Sirkeci for lunch.

From Washington DC, to London and finally Istanbul, this weary traveler couldn't have been more pleased and surprised to discover the warm and friendly welcome delivered by the staff at Hotel Niles. We were greeted with apple tea and Turkish delights before settling into our beautifully appointed rooms. I particularly loved the authentic Turkish bath in my junior suite! Our days began with a buffet breakfast served on the roof terrace which sustained us for hours of sightseeing. This hotel is central to all the major sights in the old town and if you are as intrepid as we were, even walking distance over the Galata Bridge, into the New District and all the way to Taksim Square. The staff was always available to answer questions and give advice on how to make the most of our four days in Istanbul, something you may not find in the big name chain hotels around the world. I would heartily recommend Hotel Niles to anyone planning a stay in Istanbul!

It can be a bit disconcerting as the taxi turns off the motorway and makes its way through the city walls of the old part of Istanbul. A modern boulevard changes into a warren of ancient streets, impossible traffic and copious use of the klaxon. There is a reward however in the name of the Hotel Niles. Kemal and his team will extend an incredible welcome from the moment you arrive, there will be helpful tips, constant attention to every need and all within a traditional building that sports a very tasteful decor.
It is ideally located for all the tourist attractions in the city, the tram stop is at the top of the road, the Grand Bazaar just past the tram stop and all the hustle and bustle of the city 100yds from your door step. The breakfast terrace is a great way to start the day with sunshine beaming at you from the East; the range will not disappoint. If you're looking to explore Istanbul look no further than here. Oh and the airport collection service is well worth the 25 euros after a long flight.

Room Tip: It is well worth forking out for a suite..

Like so many other reviewers, I found the hotel to be very clean, a great value and a super, central location. The staff were always at hand to help and went beyond the call many, many times. The breakfast selection was generous and the offering plentiful. The outdoor terrace was still blooming in early November.

I can't say enough good things about The Hotel Niles and its stand-out staff. Thank you.

The staff at the Hotel Niles could not have been more helpful. They obviously love their city and want to help us to do the same. The location was very convenient for all the main tourist sites and the rooms were clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was excellent - set us up for the day.

Hotel is a real find. Excellent location and the staff is very helpful.The breakfast buffet is very good with convenient hours 8 to 11am. We will stay here again. The Grand Bazzar is 3 minutes walk and the Blue Mosque another 10 minutes with the Spice Bazzar close by. There are excellent restaurants nearby

We stayed here for a week and had a fantastic time. The hotel is located in a quiet side street, five minutes walk from the Grand Bazaar and the tram stop, making it easy to travel around the city. We were glad we had the Junior Suite - the room was quite large and had a Turkish bath which was excellent. The room was nicely decorated and had aircon, a fridge and a comfy bed. We enjoyed having breakfast on the roof terrace overlooking the Sea of Marmara. The staff were all friendly and helpful, and arranged cars to take us to/from the airport.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of travelling to Istanbul.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, definitely go for the Junior Suite.
