Med Cezir Hotel

Reviewed 16 April 2014

We recently visited the Med Cezir, and nothing could have made our spring break trip better! The staff, especially Samet Andac, was amazingly helpful, making sure that we had help getting where we needed to go and giving us advice on the best places to visit. They really went out of their way to make sure we had access to anything we needed! The location is more than we could have asked for, right behind the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque, with a view off the rooftop that betters that of the Four Seasons next door. You're also within walking distance of all other major sights in Sultanahmet. The price was reasonable, breakfast was good, and when I return to Istanbul I will definitely be staying there again!

Room Tip: All rooms are great, depending on how many people you have. For larger groups they even have rooms f...

The Med Cezir's finest point was it's staff- they went above and beyond in helping us to have the best experience in Turkey. The Med Cezir has a great location behind the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque main square area, putting you nearby many restaurants, the tram line, and of course, some of the biggest sights in Istanbul. Breakfast is a spread of traditional Turkish food, egg, meat, cheese, bread, fruit, and coffee or tea (and of course, they have the delicious apple tea!!). A good place to stay to be in the action!

With 96% rating from hostelworld.com we maybe anticipated too much. The hostel is good, has helpful staff, is clean, has a really good location but doesnt offer that little "extra". The hostel offers simple breakfast but the restaurant mentioned on the website is not operating anymore. They also offer shuttle service to/from Ataturk airport at the rate of 15 TL per person.
All in all, a nice place to stay in Istanbul.

We spent 10 days exploring Istanbul and stayed in Med Cezir Hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and quiet and the price was very reasonable compared to other hotels in the area. Med Cezir is only a few steps away from the Aya Sofya and very close to all the sites in Sultanahmet. There is also a tram stop nearby - so you can easily connect to other parts of the city during the day. The only drawback, which has nothing to do with the hotel, is that there are few good restaurants and other evening venues in the Sultanahmet area, so visitors will have to make their way to other parts of the city if they are looking for something to do at night.

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Everyone on staff was super helpful and friendly, I really hope we get to stay at Med Cezir again someday. We stayed in room number 4 and it was a really great value. There was a shared bathroom, but only with one other room so it was hardly an inconvenience. Plus, there was a door to close off the rest of the hotel from rooms 4, 5 and the restroom. The location of Med Cezir really couldn't be any better. You can walk to the Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque, many other attractions and the tram line in less than 5 minutes. The restaurant is also quite good - not the best we went to in Istanbul, but really good.

Amazing time in Med Cezir Hotel. 100% recommended. Excellent location, great breakfast and great staff, specially Samet. He even organized us an amazing Turkey Tour much cheaper than we had checked before.

The staff is extremely helpful, sincere, and friendly. They really went out of their way to help us arrange everything we needed. We really felt welcome. They can even arrange tours for you in Cappadoccia. The prices they offer in Istanbul are better than what you get once you arrive in Cappadoccia. We didn't book the air balloon tour in Istanbul and regretted it when we got to Cappadoccia.... The tours were selling for much much more (60 euro difference) in Cappadoccia. Thanks Orhan and Samet for your friendliness.
